Ruiners

eBay hates Harry Potter.

Or, at the very least, has it in for the Weasley twins.                                                                                                                                                                                                        In their 2012 Fall Sellers Update, the Internet auction site banned “wizardly enchantments, magic spells and potions.”

Divination Professor Sybill Trelawne would also be out-of-luck, because psychic readings have been nixed as well.

What are they thinking?

Hogwarts would be a shade of its former self without Snape sneering in potions class.  And with no deadly spells or enchantments to cast, Harry’s ultimate showdown with Voldemort would be no more.  The whole legend up in smoke.

It’s just a book series, you say?  Well, of course it is….

Now that eBay’s banned all the fun stuff.

Come again

I saw “How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying” again last night. ( I’ve seen “The Book of Mormon” twice, too…and it only officially opened March 24th.)

What can I say.  I like reruns.

I’m the same with books and movies and TV shows:  if I like something, I can watch it again and again and again.

It’s not that I don’t like new things…quite the contrary.  But let’s face it.  The first time you see anything, you’re busy absorbing the plot and the characters and — if it’s a musical like “Mormon” or “How to Succeed” — the score, and deciding if you like it.

In subsequent readings or viewings, you already know you like it.  Now you can take the time to notice all the little nuances that make you like it.

You can peek behind the curtain.  Get a glimpse of the wizard in books or shows that you love.  (It’s not a wizard in ones that you hate — more like a troll.)

Wizards.  Trolls.  Hey — it might be a good time to re-watch the “Harry Potter” films!
