Xavier: “Is there a Harry Potter Day?”
Me: “I don’t think so, but if they do make one, it should be on July 31st for Harry’s birthday or on September 1st for the Hogwarts start of term.”
Me: “He said…wearing his 7th Star Wars shirt this week.”
Liam: (death glare)

Hey, you got your Star Wars in my Harry Potter!
2 great tastes that taste great together.
Agreed! They’re the Reeces’s of nerdery!
Oh crap. I didn’t know the whole fucking video was gonna pop up there.
God damn duh.
I can’t see it at work, so it’ll be a nice little surprise when I get home. 🙂
Until recently, we didn’t have Reeces in Australia. So, some years ago when I made a return visit to Canada, I totally pigged out on them, and now I can’t look at one without feeling queasy.
You ODed. 🙂
Yup, and then went cold turkey.
I think we can market this as a treatment…
Takes one to know one!! HA HA! 😛
Hey, nerds run the world, kids…
They do…as long as you’re a functional highly-employed nerd and not a Dwayne who works at CVS and uses comics to masturbate nerd.
I keep forgetting that you can still be called a nerd and not really know anything…
Story of my life, man.
I think HP day is celebrated on July 31st. Nerds are the coolest group of people on this earth!
Wow… The things I learn… it’s 2 days before Star Wars Day according to this wiki entry: http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/2_May
There’s apparently a story about it being the Battle of Hogwarts. I think you’d know this more than I would.. I bailed after Philosopher’s Stone when I was able to determine that Hermione was Rowling’s self-insertion.
Ugh, really? I think that should be it’s own holiday as a sort of Memorial Day. Yes, I’m that level of nerd…who needs more than one holiday, and one of them is to remember the fictional people we lost on that sad, sad, fake day.
You’re talking to the man that celebrates Emancipation Day (it’s in my journal (WordPress) and can be looked up), Coming Out Day, Calling in Queer Day (that’s discretionary and used more often than once a year), Equinox Days, Everyday is Halloween Day (also celebrated more than once a year), along with Beltane, Imbolc… The list goes on.
The point it — if the nation won’t recognize it — make it part of your own tradition… Eventually it’ll be picked up by others..
Your kids won’t have a clue what’s going on.
They’re used to that sensation after all these years in my house. 🙂
According to the diagram found on http://geeknation.com/circle-graph-geek-vs-nerd-vs-dork-vs-dwee/ Dwayne would be a dork 🙂
As a science geek these distinctions are important (or that’s what I tell myself) 🙂
Catching up on your Shenanigans and I have to tell you, there’s a Harry Potter Conference in Pennsylvania! Quidditch matches, DADA classes, etc. So awesome!
Wha-whaaaaaat!? Why am I here and that’s there!?
