Whack a blodger at Rowling!

It's very tempting! I'll have to Bless her Heart, at least.

One of my biggest questions is, "Did Emma Watson do her own screaming for the movies, or did they use a stunt screamer?" She had some major league screams in "Sorcerer's Stone" and "Prisoner of Azkaban."

That's a good question. I hadn't really envisioned Hermione as a shrieker, actually.

Just give it a few years, and we'll read all about it on "Page Six".

Actually, I really hope she doesn't end up going the Lindsay Lohan route.

Thank you, thank you, please tip your server ...

I hope we don't find Volume 7 to be full of dangling modifiers, Comma Chaos, and Homophone Howlers ... I noticed three errors in "Half-Blood Prince," and I've only read it twice. The first couple of volumes were exquisite.

I agree. She's a pretty and talented young lady, in spite of her rather irritating enunciation. I hope she has a long and dignified career.

Nope, didn't...I think some other Freepers were puzzled, too.

Only those FReepers are puzzled, who have not achieved Sarcasm Nirvana. I think it sets in for sign-on dates prior to 2004.

Harry's already saved the lives of Ginny, Arthur, and Ron Weasley. If a Weasley dies, it'll be Percy, the prat.

It will be one of Fred or George, but not both.

I saw these pics this morning (yes I check Mugglenet first thing every morning!!)

Everybody looks great. I can't imagine this movie being under four hours. Oh, and I read that Dan and Rupert have signed on for the last two movies, but Emma is undecided.

Very interesting.

As I'm a woman, the actress playing Tonks doesn't do anything for me, hormone-wise, but she doesn't look too far off from the descriptions of the character.

The Potter books so far have been blessedly free of Homophonia ... I hope this continues. How can you trust a person's plotting if she doesn't know there from they're from their?

Until Lavender Brown hooked up with Ron, I had my concerns about her and Parvati Patil.

Wormtail might have been gay if he hadn't spent 12 years as a rat.

It will be one of Fred or George, but not both.

As I posted, one will avenge the other. The two are comic relief for the series, but with their knack for trouble, one of them is likely to buy it. The only hope that either has is if JKR thinks that the killing of one twin is too cliche.

There are also some still at the Internet Movie Database http://www.imdb.com

One of them has a young girl with long, blonde hair, but isn't credited as to who it is.

It is Evanna Lynch playing Luna Lovegood. A Potter fan since she could read, she was chosen over 13,000 other girls. She's from Ireland.
