Update: Today a buttonmashing.com “Fan” dropped off a copy of the first five Harry Potter books. At first, this was kinda creepy thinking that someone reading the blog knew where I lived. Then, I started parsing through possible suspects (I mean my friends) who knew I write buttonmashing and things started making sense. I have narrowed down the list of suspects but I’m still a little baffled by the “A rose is a rose…” message. Is that a red herring? Is there something deeper to this message than meets the eye? Do I dare “out” the gift giver, risking the possibility of future gifts? Do I claim I hate the Xbox 360 in the hopes I get another parcel?
I thank my “Fan” and I will at least give the first book a try. It can’t hurt, right? I currently reading this, so Harry will have to work his way into my book queue, but I promise I will give him a chance.
And as to Jeremiah’s NCAA 2006 review request, my first impressions will be forthcoming but I need more time before I make any review-like proclamations.
