I need to be sick more often... well, no, I don't actually want to be sick, I just want more time to read and sleep. Saturday and Sunday, I was feeling more rested than I ever have been in years, even though it was drug induced and I slept just about around the clock.
I finished The Prisoner of Azkaban (third Harry Potter book) last night... which was a really bad idea because I had to go to work this morning, but eh, whatever. I had resolved to go to bed early (2200h) and read until I fell asleep. This is about all the time I have for reading. It usually works, I have to backtrack a little the next time for the bit that didn't quite stick to my brain while I zone in and out of consciousness. But last night, I thought I was really close to the end... for three hours. =D
I'm starting to get the hang of JKR and I pretty much guessed the ending to PoA. My guess was right, but still didn't spoil it too much. It was a little more complicated than I thought and I still enjoyed it.
Questions for all the Potter Fans:
How do you pronounce "Slytherin"? I can't decide if it's supposed to be slitherin' (as in "a snake's prime method of motion" which fits fairly well, if not a little too obvious) or if it's a long-i (as in "SLY-there-in").
How do you say "Hermione"? I'm lost after the second syllable.
Pronunciations is one of the reasons I want to see the movie. Just to see how off I am. I'll probably see it one night this week.
