Harry Potter 6 Quotes

Header by Samulli
HP fans are flocking to the movies for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in July. I am re-reading the book to remember some details and be more aware of what's showing (and not) in the movie. Out of the many quotes in the book that I like, amuse me or are relavant to me, here are 13 of them:

1. People find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than for being right.~ Hermione Granger on Dumbledore, p. 96

2. Why are you worrying about You-Know-Who?You should be worrying about U-No-Poo- The Constipation Sensation that's gripping the nation.~ Sign on the Weasley Twins Joke Shop, p.116

3. It is impossible to manufacture or imitate love. When you have seen asmuch of life as I have, you will not underestimate the power of obsessive love.~ Horace Slughorn to Malfoy and Nott, p. 186

4. We teach you not only to use magic but to control it.~ Dumbledore to Riddle, p.273

5. Stop bossing me around.~ Ron to Hermione, p. 293

6. The important thing to remember when Apparating are the three D's: Destination, Determination, Deliberation.~ Twycross, p. 384

7. We all think our subject's most important.~ Professor Slughorn to Professor Trelawney, p. 319

8. Jinxes go in and out of fashion like everything else.~ Lupin to Harry, p. 336

9. I prefer flying.~Harry to Ron, p. 386

10. It's important to fight, and fight again and keep fighting, for only then
could evil be kept at bay.~ Dumbledore
And the following do not have page numbers because I got them from the net.

11. Is a man alive if he can't be killed?~ Cornelius Fudge

12. Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure~ Albus Dumbledore

13. Don't count your owls before they are delivered.~ Albus Dumbledore.

Weekend Snapshot: The AIDS Temple (Lopburi I)

It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:

100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at

"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple

Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies

A usual sight around Thai temples

Bone sculptures

The temple bell

Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.

Honor, Awards and a Game

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Made of Honor
Awards and a Game/Meme follow. Please scroll down a bit.


My pick for this week's TCP theme (wedding movie) is Made of Honor. I like the humor in it. We've all been to several weddings but how many of us can say I've been to one in which the maid of honor was a he? The scene which particularly cracked me up is when the priest mistook the maid of honor for a gay man =) If you're familiar with some of my likes, you'd know why I also love the Scotland location of the wedding. For more of the synopsis click here; and here's the trailer:
Head over to Just About Anything for more wedding movies.

My super duper bloggy friend Thom of Thom's Place for Well Whatever and fellow Mom Tetcha of Pensive Thoughts awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. I have to list seven things about me so here they are:

1. I love wearing jeans more than skirts.
2. One of my favorite colors is purple.
3. I don't mind spending sunrise…

Girl reading

The pictures space in my e-library contains a folder named Anastasia's Looking Glass.  It is where I store photos that inspire me. Recently I stumbled upon this website called vi.sualize.us where you can "bookmark your favorite images and share them with everyone." So far I found 12; (thought I'd include one of me to complete the list as I like it the way it is), and I'm sharing all with you.  A link to the source is placed before each photo. My 'favoritest' are nos. 2 - 13. Got yours?
