Utena: With Sword

It's new Harry Potter! Well, sort of.

And my shiny new thing for the day is: Tales of Beedle the Bard.

Which admittedly was not a very long read, but it looks pretty and is for charity. And it's a new Potter thing, which automatically fills me with glee.

(On that note, as mentioned I went for the cheap "standard" version. I'd love to hear from someone with the special addition, if just to hear if there are any differences aside from the gorgeous binding)

But yes, a quick read, if amusing. Well, the fairytales themselves were very... fairytale-like, so good on JKR for that. The notes from Dumbledore were amusing and interesting, and I would honestly love to read more of that sort of thing. Please do that Encyclopedia, Jo, please, please!

...And in a typically me-like fannish note, I am now wondering how long until people start throwing references to stuff in it into their fic. I know, I know...

Other stuff what I did today included shopping, and having an excessively long conversation with a bloke named David at the comic store. Isn't my life thrilling?
