magic and so forth

So I've only ever read the first of the Harry Potter books, this tends to make people I know rather aghast, especially if they're a few years younger than me and were thus at least in their teens when Potter first appeared on the scene. I read the first book maybe six years ago and really enjoyed it but then, as I do too often with series, put it down and started reading something else. This is why, to my shame as any kind of literate nerd, I've never even read the last Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book. But lately I've realized how silly that is and the thing to do is to read all the books in a series in a row, to "upload" them if you will. I've decided it is now time to do this with the Potter books, so I have set upon re-reading the first. As I remembered it's a witty, delightful romp and so forth blah blah blah, it certainly doesn't need my help to move copies.

But I guess what I'm saying is that I like it because it is a good story.

Also because I really like Satan. Satan is awesome. Satan, Satan, Satan!

They're really good books for teaching you about Quidditch and magic and how to reject God and embrace the Evil One. That's why people love them.

It does, doesn't it? I am of course honored by any comparison to the Ted Knight character in Caddyshack, whose fundamental decency has been unfairly maligned by generations of smartass punks like you.

Oh, and I fixed rejct. Mortifying.

Wait, I have a blog? Oh, yeah, that's right - I forgot I stopped updating it when I decided the whole blogging thing was a little pointlessly arrogant and I felt rather embarrassed for myself. However, to paraphrase Rodney Dangerfield talking to Ted Knight in "Caddyshack" about his hat, it looks good on you.

For my part, I've glanced at your blog maybe twice and it failed to hold my interest in the least but I'm glad I manage to amuse you on ocasion.

I usually think your blog is a little too much of a navel-gazer for my own taste, but sometimes you write something funny enough to make me giggle (and making a porky, bitter old guy giggle is rather impressive). For the record, "[t]hey're really good books for teaching you about Quidditch and magic and how to rejct (sic) God and embrace the Evil One" is one of the better lines I've read this year. Good show.
