I have a confession: I have never read any of the Harry Potter books, nor have I seen any of the Harry Potter movies.
Let’s back up and start here:
(a conversation between myself and Bucking the Wave‘s, Spitfire, between 3:03 and 3:13 this afternoon)
Spitfire: when are you going to HP?
me: Don’t kill me, but I think I should catch the first five
Spitfire: SHUT. UP.
me: I know! For shame, for shame…
Spitfire: have you at least read the books? how have you not seen harry fucking potter?????
me: Not seen, not read
Spitfire: i think i’m revoking your junkie card!!!! even though you invented the thing. I’M IN SHCOK.
I CAN’T EVEN SPELL
Spitfire: i’m still trying to understand how this could be possible and i’m coming up blank. you hate wizards?
me: No…I just missed the boat…for many years. so, I guess I missed several boats
I’ve been to Oxford and seen where they filmed it, though. Can I have half a point for that?
Spitfire: GET ON THE BOAT!!!!!! THERE’S STILL TIME!!!! OMFG!!!!!!@
you haven’t read the book but you’ve been to where they’ve filmed it. my brain just imploded by the injustice of it all!
you get 1/2 a point for sure.
me: I hate to leave you in such a state, but I have to run…If you want you can write a 5 word “WTF, Junkie1″ post today
Spitfire: it would take way more than 5 words.
Apparently, it took 10 words, and here is what I got:
Spitfire: HOLY SHIT J1. WHAT GIVES????? FORGET *QUINTOVENTION— TIME FOR *POTTER-VENTION!!!
Allow me to explain myself… ::crickets:: … Okay. I admit it. I have no excuse for the fact that this is the pinnacle of my Harry Potter exposure:
