I just keep solidifying my nerdiness.
My second post for The Riff, Mother Jones' media and culture blog, is up. In it I use the term Muggle, not once, but twice. But hey, people are being spurred to do more than buy Hogwarts branded stuff, so I thought they deserved a shout out.
Speaking of shout outs...Amanda at Pandagon has a really interesting post about why the books should have been turned into a TV series instead of movies. Maybe if they had, the ridiculously long quidditch scenes wouldn't annoy me so much.
