    I guess I have to start reading them again to bone up for the next big test ;)

    Actually before I return to them I'm gonna have to start reading the books I got on teaching. With no experience, I want to have some idea of what I'm gonna do on the first day.

    Aw. I tutored English to a class of Bangladeshi students when I was a sophomore. That was an experience.

    I think the worst thing about it was standing in front of the class, asking if they knew what you were talking about, and hearing crickets chirp, chirp, chirp away.

    Well, I suppose I need to know what school I'm going to first actually ;)

    I'm gonna do elementary so I'll probably have some of those looks too (it is LA afterall)

    Whoa Nellie!

    I just stopped by [link=http://www.fossil.com]Fossil[/link] to look at their latest watches (I'm a watch nut) and saw the most amazing Potter Watches. They have a Dumbledore pocket watch that simply must be mine.

    So, given the rumors that were posted on tfn about Harry getting a girlfriend in the next book or two, do you think it will be Hermione?

    KR, you finished GoF, right?

    Ron and Hermione are so definitely going to be together and get married and have many red-haired brilliant wizard children once they kick Voldemort's butt!


    As for Harry-- I think Cho. Rowling conveniently left an opening in her social life for the two to work. Also, she's always been nice to him, never mean or condecsending.

    Ron and Hermione I like Harry and Cho is much more questionable.

    How about that Hagrid? that old sly dog!

    Yes. I think if Cho died, that would make these books a lot more interesting.


    Hmmm. Maybe Malfoy?

    Malfoy reached pinacle of his worth in life as a ferret.


    ahhh that scene still brings tears to my eyes.

    I get all sniffly too, farraday.


    Have you seen the second trailer yet? There's a short clip with Malfoy throwing Neville's Remembrall.

    Malfoy's character as well as his lackeys, should become fairly important in the next ones I think, given his father's current activities...


    Yes, Harry and Cho makes perfect sense, but the fact that Hermione gave Harry that little "gift" as they left for the summer, I felt that was left open a bit.

    Rowling stated in an interview that it would be Ron & Hermoine. Though Ron is a little slow in picking up on it. As for Harry the rumor is Cho first and later Ginny.

    Anyway the books are quite remarkable. I started the series more out of curiousty then anything else and was hooked instantly. The movie looks fine but I can't wait for the next book.

    Also this message board is the best that I have found so far:

    Well good, I think Ginny deserves him -- but the age difference may be a bit kinky right now ;)

    15 and 14 isn't bad, but I don't think the characters are going to have much time for any nookie with Voldemort out there ;)

    EDIT: I don't think things would be smooth between Cho and Harry--not after Cedric hits the dirt :( Go Ginny!!

    LOL farraday! :D

    I'm a Ron/Hermione supporter, and I think Harry and Cho should at least date for a while.
