Hello, my name is Minerva

I am a loyal and dedicated Harry Potter fan. I've pre-ordered and pre-paid my copy of The Deathly Hallows and pre-ordered a Braille copy for Amigo. Meanwhile, I reread the first six, and once again cried over Dumbledore. How could Snape..?!...never mind.

Some day soon I'll see the movie for The Order of the Phoenix. I was nervous about seeing the first movie because I was afraid it wouldn't live up to the book. Now I thoroughly enjoy the movies, even as I insist that the books are better. They are. Really.

As I read, I see myself as Professor McGonagall. She's definitely a kindred spirit. She's a leader, one who knows what's right, and calmly deals with many big issues. With the Weasley family in her house, particularly Fred and George, I'm sometimes amazed at how calm she can be! When I saw the first movie, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, my first glimpse of McGonagall was a mild shock. "No, that can't be her. She's much too, well, old. She's supposed to be me!" Several years later, now I can watch the movies and say, it's okay. I can only hope to age as well. Can I wear a nifty green hat like hers? And where's my wand?

So it was no surprise when I took a sorting quiz and found myself in Gryffindor. Behave yourselves in the common room, Fred and George, I'm on my way!

i'm in gryffindor!

I loved the first four books, but got stuck on The Order of the Phoenix. So, that's as far as I've gone. I plan to catch up with the movies (don't kill me). While a movie is typically not as good as the book, Harry Potter has been the exception for me. They've done a great job!
