Hurry, Potter! End the Deathly Hallows

Deathly Hallows. JK Rowling surely knows how to pick her titles. Although she isn't revealing what the title means, most fans (and there are plenty, I guess) would finally be able to find out what it is 2 days from now. Unless, you've heard about the leak. Have you?

Well, Zaki couldn't care less about the new book. Obviously, because she can't read yet. All she wants is for us to surf the cable channels for Harry Potter movies or entertainment news clips of Daniel, Emma and Rupert day in and day out for the past few weeks now whenever we are all seated for a meal and the TV is turned on. Funny thing is, she's afraid of the villains and would often ask that we turn off it off after 15-20 minutes.

So, like many others who have owned and read the last 6 Potter books, we are excited on getting our hands on the last book. Nothing like a good read in one's hands but for now I may have to content myself with a file of the first ten chapters courtesy of one who we may never know who

Wonder of my world

It would be fair to say that I would never see any of the ancient wonders of the world nor the new ones even. Looks like even completing the new list wasn't spared by democracy and the internet so much so that the Egyptians found the idea of nominating the Giza for the new list as ridiculous (Somehow, I agree with them because the Pyramids are definitely shoo-ins.) But as with opinion, however the number of votes cast, there is a thing as 'to each his own'. I know what mine is.

Zaki's now another month older. She could count to ten (if you could decipher the words she chose to replace 6 & 7), her new tag line is Harry Potter (replacing Peter Parker & Spidey); she has retired her magnetic drawing board due to overuse (drawing lines and shapes before bedtime and calling them Doc Ock, Harry, sexy Hermione and Ron) and her favorite toy is a small 'The Thing' (of the Fantastic Four) which she brings to the bath and to bed everyday. It could have been 'The Silver Surfer' if she only knew how to pronounce it correctly but for now, even she is embarrassed with how she calls it that it won't probably be her favorite toy for months to come.
