I realised, to my shock, that it was ten years ago this month that I first started reading Harry Potter. So naturally, I decided to mark the occasion by reading the lot again... I took the first four books to France, and finally started reading them at the beginning of last week. Then, about halfway through book three, I realised that I'd brought book six instead of book four, which was no good really. Now I'm temporarily back in Dublin, but it turns out my copy of book four is in Bray, and I don't want to finish book three until I have book four close by, or I'll pick up something else and my planned Potter marathon will be ruined! Agh, I'm some eejit.

I was staying in a hotel for the last two weeks, a small little local place, and the cleaning girl was just... amazing. Anyway she came up to my room on Saturday, asked if she could clean the room so I said ok, grabbed my coat and went downstairs for a coffee... then I realised my bedside locker had three Harry Potter books, a DS and Mario games. She probably thought I was a large ten-year-old.

Me too. Er.. least said, soonest mended I think.

Is this a Dublin hotel? I was going to ask which one incase it was one of the dozens I've stayed in over the last 6 months, but I imagine you probably have higher standards than me :D If there wasn't blood smeared on the walls, I don't know it.

Aido is working in the south of France these days.

Awh, Lilac ... I was kinda disappointed to see you chopped the final part of PTs post before replying "Me too" :wink:

I was disappointed too Mully until I realised she only chopped it out because she thought we would question her on it and think that she does watch porn (which is now embarrassingly apparent that she does). Little did she know that men only hear what they want, therefore by the mere act of replying to the post in the first place, means that we automatically watches porn

Why would I be any more embarrassed than Matt, or the rest of you? :P

Because you probably watch 'normal' porn, unlike the fiends that are Rocky & PT.
