RaNdom fRiDAY - Schmoetry & Potter

Thank you all so much for visiting and commenting during Poetry Schmoetry week by Shelly Brown! I haven't returned comments because the contest includes how many comments are received. But I really appreciate all of them! Today I will be visiting the rest of the participants.

And now that I finished CATCHING FIRE, second book in the Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, I will have more time to do that!

Quick Review: Loved it! Thought it would drag with sappy teen romance, sooo did not! Looking forward to finishing the series. Haven't read a book that fast in ages! I barely predicted anything =)

And today the last Harry Potter movie ever(?) comes out! (can you say future prequel?) So in honor of it, I have some trivia from Entertainment Weekly (7/8,15/2011):

1. Which movie was this quote from & who said it?
"Now, Harry, you must know all about Muggles. Tell me, what exactly is the function of a rubber duck?"
2. What is the name of Dumbledore's phoenix?
3. What happens when you use this incantation? "Rictusempra!"
4. Finish this Hermione quote: "...you've got the emotional range of a _______."
5. What's the name of the street HP's Muggle family lives on?

and for more fun, tell me which is your favorite - mine is the Prisoner of Azkaban. I love the Time Turner watch! (answers Sunday)

Looking forward to HP. Don't know any of the answers though. I'll have to try a Susan Collins at some point.

1. HP2 (COS), Mr. Weasley
2. Fawkes
3. Being tickled. Not to ever be confused with Sectumsempra, which leaves bloody gashes over the body. (!)
4. Teaspoon! (OotP) (? or HBP, I can't remember, but it's one of those 2)
5. Privet Drive

I love the Time Turner too! And I love the way Harry says "This is not NORMAL!" LOL
I think for looks, POA is my fav, although I was loving the comedy in HBP when Ron is under the love potion spell and falls off the back of Slughorn's couch after trying to cuddle up to him and offering him a drink! :D

Wow. I believe that Jenny has all the correct answers!

I LOVE all the movies.

I appreciate the wonder on Harry's face in the first film but each one has special moments.

Not sure when I will get out to see the new one but I'm looking forward to it.

Great job on the Schmoetry!

I am almost done with Catching Fire and totally agree with you about the series. I can't wait to finish it and read Mockingjay.

I double checked that the Mr. Weasley quote was from COS, but I knew all the others. Cause I'm an HP dork. LOL
