    Here are things I believe:
    • 1) There are such things as the Blibbering Humdinger.
      2) There are such things as the Crumple-Horned Snorkack.
      3) The Beetle is missing.
      4) I should have left for Patton's Run that night.
      5) The extra E in tweleve is for Expelliarmus!
      6) We will never solve the third clue - it's just a mean joke by MS.

    On to another fun distraction,
    It's been a blast guys!

    "You can laugh!" Luna said, her voice rising, apparently under the impression that Parvati and Lavender were laughing at what she had said rather than what she was wearing."But people used to believe there were no such things as the Blibbering Humdinger or the Crumple-Horned Snorkack!" (Order of the Phoenix Chapter 13)

    Luna took a treat breath and then said, without so much as a preliminary hello: "I believe He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is back, and I believe you fought him and escaped from him."
    "Er -- right," said Harry awkwardly. Luna was wearing what looked like a pair of orange radishes for earrings, a fact that Parvati and Lavender seemed to have noticed, as they were both giggling and pointing at her earlobes. (Order of the Phoenix Chapter 13)

    I too totally believe in the Crumple-Horned Snorkack. I also believe that Stubby Boardman is Sirius Black, and therefore I have to believe that the 3rd clue is a total red herring!

    I love HP....

    Not everyone can read quickly, has a lot of free time, and lots of people have to share it with family first. There were was a mom here earlier telling how she had to draw straws, and lost to two other family members!

    Take it away!!

    well that may be true, but I know a few people who are going to read the book, just "not yet". So don't say anything incase the unwary HP fan is browsing the forums, and...

    Yeah, that mom was me. I originally lost out to my husband and son on what order we would get the book. My husband got it first, and my son was supposed to take it next. So I decided to re-read the other 5 books while I was waiting. Well, now my son has decided to also re-read the other 5 books before he reads the new one, so I can have the new one, but I'm not done with the others yet, and since I have started them, I want to finish (finding that there are lots of things I don't remember). I had my own suspicions on who was going to die and my husband promised not to tell me before I could read the book. I wasn't too happy when I saw the post yesterday. Oh well. Nothing I can do about it now.

    The only reason I haven't read the book yet is because I want to finish
    "Atlas Shrugged" before I start it....and at 1100 pages of pretty intellectual material it is definitely not a fast read.

    But I will get to HP soon....so please don't ruin it!
