I'm a dork and I'm not ashamed.

I love Harry Potter. I've read all the books, natch. I've gleefully listened to the Jim Dale's delightful readings of the audiobooks about a dozen times each. The movies...well, I've seen them. Some more than others. But the point is, I like Harry Potter.

I don't like video games that much though. They're ok, but I normally can do without. But I've just begun playing "Order of the Phoenix" on the Wii, and I'm shocked by how much I'm enjoying it. I've been playing it for hours, and I've yet to get bored with making objects whiz across the screen with a flick of my Wiimote. Granted, everything else about the game sucks. The storytelling, the rendering, the character "animation"...its all you'd except from EA. And yet, any time I shout "Wingardium Leviosa!" (and yes, I do shout it... that helps somehow) and make a stone bench fly across the courtyard and beam Hermione in the face, it makes up for everything! So what with being back at Primal for a spell (heh heh) and discovering I can be way nerdier than heretofore dreamed, I've not been drawing much. But I have been having a good time at least.
