HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE
Over the holiday vacation, I had a HARRY POTTER MARATHON.
Here are some of my thoughts… after seeing the movies four or five times each:
NEXT YEARS CHRISTMAS REQUEST: I want a reverse flashlight like Dumbledore in the opening scene.
I WISH I HAD THIS AS A HID-AWAY WHEN I WAS A KID: Except for the dust from above, I think under the stairs would be a great place to sleep.
AND OTHER SCATTERED THOUGHTS …
I would love to see Dudley tied by his feet and hung upside-down until (the rest of the statement was no longer PG13.) … but being trapped in a snake’s cage was a close second. The piggy-tail was a plus, as well.
I have always pictured bankers as ‘goblins’….Ugly little buzzards, they are.
I have never ridden on a train, but I think the Hogwart’s Express would be a grand ride.
I agree with Ron Weasley that fried chicken legs for dinner are the best. I try hard (unoke Ron) NOT to eat them two at a time..
While riding the ‘brooms’ in Harry Potter might be a great deal of fun, I would still prefer to own ‘The Jetson’s car’.
Every set of boys need and overbearing and bossy girl to keep them in balance.
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” Professor Dumbledore is a wise wizard.
Having a pet dragon would be awesome!!!
“Hanging by your thumbs in the dungeon” seems to be a very appropriate punishment for misbehaving at school. I think the school system has gotten soft!
The three-headed dog I didn’t mind. I could sing to him and make friends. But the slime from the beast is horrid!
I loved the ‘killer’ chess set. I have no one around that likes to play any longer. I never was that good- but I suspect this game would cause improvements rather fast.
There is NO WAY I would try jelly beans if a possible flavor might be ‘vomit’ or ‘ear wax’ …. no worth the risk.
