Last week Luc found a page with Weird Al's eBay Song. It's been getting a lot of play in the office this week.. :)

Dennis also sent me a very cool link to a JK Rowling interview that answers some of my questions, thanks for that! I liked this bit:

Everything that happens has a meaning, sometimes in a later book. Do you have everything planned out in your head, or do you tie things in as you go? Yes, it's all planned out, but I still give myself room to have some fun if a good idea arrives while I'm writing.

Sometimes I wondered if it had all been planned out to some extent, as I'm sure it'd be harder to explain things that happened in previous books without some forethought. I also liked this:

I was wondering about Dumbledore's facial expression in Goblet when he found out that Voldemort had touched Harry. The narrative says that Dumbledore reacted with a look of triumph. Aside from the problem of interpreting triumph on someone's face, I was wondering if that is an attempt to throw question on Dumbledore's character, or is he triumphant, perhaps, that Harry can be touched by Lord Voldemort without being destroyed (or something like that)? I frequently look triumphant, I'll have you know. Well, I'm sure you won't be surprised that I'm not going to explain why Dumbledore looked that way. Well-spotted though.

I actually wondered about that myself. In fact when I read it in book 4 a year and a half ago I was thrown into doubt about Dumbledore, and whether I could trust him and how much of the entire series would be different if Dumbledore wasn't all he seemed. I couldn't wait the next six months for book 5 to come out so I could find out what happened next!

I also went through the majority of my USA photos, rotating them before I can resize them. It was just like revisiting everywhere, it was great :) Getting closer to getting everything online.
