Just looking at this thing makes me sleepy . . . ::yawn::

July 27, 2002- 1:08 AM! In site related news, I put up three more Fan Art pages. I also updated the COS cast, as actor Robert Hardy (who is in Thunderpants with Rupert Grint) is being considered for the role of Cornelius Fudge.
Exclusive Movie News!: I have it on good authority that there is a very good possibility there will be a Chamber of Secrets movie premiere in Los Angeles. This means not a little dinky one you hear about on Access Hollywood a week after it happens. So, in fact, there will most likely be a movie premiere at Mann's Chinese Theatre (because that's where most premieres are held) and hopefully a lot of cast will be there. If I recall, at the dinky one for Sorcerer's Stone, John Cleese (Nearly Headless Nick) was the only one to show up.
< >Happy Belated Birthday to Daniel Radcliffe who turned 13 on July 23.

July 26, 2002- 6:38 AM! Sorry for the lack of updates! I've been indulging in some fanfiction archives, finally adding myself to Fiction Alley, reading school books, refreshing myself on the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman, and taking this darned college course. Anyway, I finally put up page seven of fan art! Click the artwork by Tatane below to get to it.

< >Lots of Draco Malfoy and other fun people in there! I'll be updating with more art pages starting when I get home today and hopefully add more to the interactive stuff (I've kind of been inactive over there.)
Bring me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks!

July 21, 2002- 1:03 AM. Disclaimer: I assure you that I have no idea why I am awake at this hour. Anyway, before I wander off into dreamland where I hope to see Wheat Thins and candy apple tarts dancily happily with Puff the Magic Dragon, Taylor Hanson and Eleanor Rigby (don't ask, don't ask, you don't want to know), I want to announce the following updates: Fan Art, Fan Fiction, Fan Poems, Street Names, and COS Movie Nitpicks, which is a good read.
< >Because I'm sleepy & I am annoyed at condescending know-it-all E-mails, I have one (::cough::) thing to say about Characters: Meg and I did NOT forget any characters. The art and bios take time to create, and thus nasty comments are not appreciated. ::looks piqued and yells to her house elf for coffee::

July 15, 2002- 11:17 PM! I can probably tell you all that this would be just about the time (and in the next few hours) three years ago today when Harry Potter's Realm of Wizardry was born on Angelfire. It's a scary thought knowing I'm so old, but it's a gratifying one to know that I've kept on with all the support you guys give me every single day. I'm not sure I could have kept going after all these years without my fellow fans. Thank you guys, site visitors and friends, whether you are new and old. It's hard to express my love for you. Each and every one of you has a special place in my heart and I wish I could give you all a hug. Thanks for everything! ::tries hard not to cry::
Three years and still hopping to the beat!  ::does an Irish jig and bounces around the May Pole::

July 14, 2002- 2:54 PM! I want to tell you guys about Harry Potter meet-up. This coming Tuesday, fellow HP fans are gathering together in order to celebrate Harry Potter. It will be the first meeting! Please go to the Harry Potter Meet-Up site and sign up to find out the location nearest to your home! You need to RSVP (a.k.a, sign-up), otherwise there may not be a meet-up in your area. I really encourage you to check it out and join your fellow fans! Tuesday the 16th is also the 3rd anniversary of this site, so I will be celebrating at the #2 top city. Yay me. :-)
< >Anyway, hope you try to go. Hey, guess what, guys? I updated FAN FICTION! Yay! ::dances around happily:: And I updated Fan Art and Meg the character artist even has her own section!
RSVP for the Meet-Up!

July 10, 2002- 9:05 PM! I was able to put a few fanfictions up over the weekend and also work on the broken images that seem to be running rampant everywhere. ::sweat-drop:: I fixed a few broken links in my fiction section due to complaints and I'm going to warn you all right now: During the next few days, any pictures of the movie that I have displayed will be messed up. I'm doing some transferring and reshuffling of things so I know what pictures come from what movies. Just watch out and it should all be done by the weekend! Buwahaha, I'm going to my local park on Friday because they're going to be showing the Harry Potter movie on a big screens. T'will be cool!

July 7, 2002- 7:55 AM! A big Happy 18th Birthday to our friend Hannah Galadriel Potter a.k.a. Iris from the message boards. H"G"P has been haunting the site and the message boards since they all first began. And I also just realized that she had a lovely and early birthday gift in 2000 because tomorrow is the second anniversary of the release of Goblet of the Fire. Hannah, we all wish you a safe and wonderful birthday!
It's your birthday, it's your birthday . . . ::tap dances across the floor::

July 5, 2002- 5:02 PM! Happy Anniversay to my parents! They're celebrating their twenty-seventh or something like that. They've been a couple since 1971 and are still going strong! ::grin::
< >Yesterday I got the chance to meet California's governor Gray Davis and it was quite cool. I followed him through a few rooms until a secret service guy told me that Mr. Davis was not going to eat my mom's famous chocolate chip cookies because he's a health nut, but if it was all the same to me, the staff would like them. ::arches eyebrow:: Alas, I did hand them over but warned the guy that he'd better own up to what he did and tell the governor that he didn't get cookies because of his hungry guards. :-)
< >Our character artist Meg has been going nuts with artwork lately! I'm going to have to open up a fan art gallery for all her work now! The following characters have been added in the last two days: Molly & Arthur Weasley, the Patil twins, Lavender Brown, Seamus Finnigan, Crookshanks, Mrs. Norris, Scabbers, the Sorting Hat, Cho Chang, Colin Creevey, Hannah Abbott, Gregory Goyle, Oliver Wood, Argus Filch and several updated pictures of characters. I updated Fan Poems so they're all up and working now, too.
I was touched!  [laughter from my mom's co-workers]

July 4, 2002- 12:41 PM! Happy Fourth of July! Top of the day, to you all! ;-) I'm off to a fireworks display in about - ::checks clock:: - two minutes and I wanted to inform those of you staying home or not celebrating America's birthday (about five point something billion of you don't) that I updated! I updated all of Fan Art and added two new pages - there's new stuff on EVERY page, so check that out! I updated Fake Titles and I updated Where in the World?! Enjoy, have a safe holiday and day, and remember this: Cheese does not go well on carrots. Thank you and good day!
Ah, I see the family resemblance. - California Gov. Gray Davis to me, saying I look like my mom

July 1, 2002- 7:02 AM! I updated! Yay! Updated fan works with more art and I received a very nice award that an anonymous person signed me up for (from Outpost Shuttlebay, a sci-fi website. I don't consider myself sci-fi, but being a fan of the genre, I'm very honored. :-)
< >Buwahaha!! A lot of you have been demanding more bios in the character section and Meg has done it again! In characters, we now have a new Pansy Parkinson, a new Lupin and Sirius Black, along with Cho Chang, Crookshanks, and Oliver Wood! YAY!
< >Add June to the News Archives. ALSO! YAY! I finally got up a great new page: Write the Stars! Lots of addresses! Cool, no?
< >BIRTHDAY NOTICES! Harry Potter turned five on June 27 (anniversary of his release in the UK). This site will also be having a birthday - our third on July 15! I'm not sure what I'll do. I'm not an artist, so I can't draw anything purdy for the occasion. :-(
