Ridiculous Potter stuff

From into that theory is the quest that began near the end of book six: the search for the horcruxes.

Someone in blog-land posted about writing thank you notes and I thought I’d comment on it. Yes, writing thank you notes is just as important now as it ever was, but all those that either weren’t taught about it, or were forced to do it (and like all things, got pissed about it and say … [Read more…]
