Well, I finished chapter 8 of the new Harry Potter book just before lightning took out power to 4 towns (why does this always happen at the height of summer or the depth of winter? In spring or fall we could handle it much more easily). As you can see, the power's back now. Someone who lives not far from us took a direct hit to the house's electric systems and all the electronic devices were, in his word, "fried", including the computer, tvs, dvd players, etc. The poor man had scorch marks on the baseboard near the computer.
J.K. Rowling has done it again. A very good story. It's a damned shame that certain hate-afflicted people in this country can't just enjoy a good read without making it out to be something that it is not (and I'm afraid I must include Pope Benedict XVI among the afflicted.)
Lose the hate, people! The Creator is no lover of hate.
For those few who actually mentioned how much they enjoyed my story, I have finished a couple of chapters and I do have an outline, but lately I have been reading so much that I have little time to write. At the moment the discipline is just not there. I guess it just goes to show that I can't read and write.
