Hallo, my dear ones!

Now that Harry Potter 7 has been read, I feel safe coming back to the internets.  It looks like my instincts to not belong to or visit any HP communities on LJ was a smart one; upon later perusal, I kept finding entries in big bold flashing text that warned of trolls coming on and spoiling things for anyone who happened to have said communities on their flist.  After all my years on this great Intarweb of ours, and I'm still amazed at the levels of douchebaggery to which people will stoop.  At any rate, I found it...to be one of the greatest works of art of our time.  A true masterpiece perfectly weaving plot and emotion, with Rowling conducting both elements as if it were the greatest orchestra on the face of the earth.  I've been interested to check out various reviews on my flist and have enjoyed seeing the quibbles that people have, most of which center on the somewhat-throw away nature of the Epilogue.  Perhaps I am not the most acerbic critic in the world, but it is truly difficult for me to find fault with this book.  I'll probably collect my thoughts sometime this week or weekend and throw them down in here somewhere, but right now, I think I'll just bask in the glory for a while.

In other news, work has been insane.  I haven't really had the time to come on here and play because the pace of my workplace in summer could rival that of NASCAR.  It usually leaves me worn out and exhausted by the time I come home, so I've mostly been resting and keeping fairly unplugged.  I think I'm sufficiently recharged though...

I've also had to take a break from wrestling for a bit.  I suppose I thought I was over all the stuff that happened with Benoit...but...its been harder for me to come back than I thought I would.  Perhaps I feel now that my trust is truly shaken, and its hard for me to enjoy it knowing what I know.  Perhaps its just the fact that the writing/booking for all wrestling across the board seems limp and uninspired.  I still love it, though, and will probably be back to watching regularly around Summerslam for a certain someone's return. 

I'm sure I'll have more to say later.  Until then, its time to listen to Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter!

I'm sorry, but I just had to pimp out my new header.  Wow that rules.
