Wizard

So screamed Mrs. Weasley as she took out the evil Bellatrix.  Yup I have spent another weekend lost in a story.

 
This time it was a reread of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  A reread of six hundred and seven pages that I just could not put down.  Again.  J.K. Rowling does have a way with words.
 
So at almost 1 a.m. I am ready to call it a day.
Regardless of your opinion of Wizards et al any story where right overcomes wrong is exhilarating.
 
What I like about Rowling is that her characters are not perfect – not black and white.  The best have a dark side to overcome and the worst have a chance at redemption.  And who you think is good is often not and vice versa.  And no one lives a life without some regret.
 
Now I wonder what I should read in bed to fall asleep?
I think I so have to get a life. 
Dancing would be nice. 

The Masters and Harry Potter

The Masters and Harry Potter
 
I wonder where the golfers are? I am a passionate golfer. No, I must correct that – I am passionate about golf. Not overly good but love the game, playing and watching. I think golf is the only sport I watch on TV on a regular basis. It would probably do my game some good if I watched women, but it is the men I most enjoy. Take that how you will.
 
This year’s Masters was one of the most exciting, sit on the edge of your seat, I have seen. Every year is exciting but this one more so. The game and the leads can change in the blink of an eye.
 
It almost looked like Tiger might pull out of his slump, but he just didn’t make it although he is still a crowd favorite. At one point I think there were ten players as co-lead. Then a nice young South African Charl Schwartzel took the day. I expected to see some blogs on it but did not.
 
Then yesterday the movie, The Deathly Hallows part 1 came out on cable. I missed it when it hit the theaters so made a little party of pizza and wine and Harry. Special thanks to my sister who had already seen it twice for joining me and pretending it was her first time!
 
So thanks to that green jacket and the wizarding world I have had a pretty good week!
