Beyond the reach of any magic

Lumos Maxima! A bored muggle needed sufficient light to pore over the final Harry Potter book not once but twice, thrice or Voldy knows how many times. Yes, we can say the name now. These are lines I remember from The Deathly Hallows for reasons bubbling with toads and whiskers in my cauldron recently:

1. All's fair in love and war and this is a bit of both.
- Ron Weasley

2. Mudblood and proud of it!
- Hermione Granger

3. Of course it is happening in your head, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?
- Albus Dumbledore to Harry

4. I think the answer is: a circle that has no beginning.
- Luna Lovegood

5. We teachers are rather good in magic you know.
- Minerva McGonagall

6. We did it, we bashed them, wee Potter's the one, And Voldy's gone moldy, so now let's have fun!
- Peeves

7. It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.
- Albus Dumbledore

8. Not my daughter, you bitch.
- Molly Weasley to Bellatrix Lestrange

9. Do not pity the dead, Harry, pity the living. Above all, pity those who live without love.
- Albus Dumbledore

10. Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure
- Engraved on Rowena Ravenclaw's diadem
 
11. (referring to Draco Malfoy's son) Make sure you beat him in every test, Rosie. Thank God you inherited your mother's brains.
- Ron Weasley to his daughter Rosie

12. That which Voldemort does not value, he takes no trouble to understand. Of house-elves and children's tales, of love, loyalty, and innocence, Voldemort knows and understands nothing. Nothing. That they all have a power beyond his own, a power beyond the reach of any magic, is a truth he has never grasped.
- Albus Dumbledore

13. (to Ron and Hermione kissing) Oi! There's a war going on here!
- Harry Potter

3 is my favorite! I can't wait to see the movie again. Unfortunately I don't have the books any more so I can't reread them.

Happy T13!

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?
