Off to Germany for a few days

Would you believe it? Another little holiday! Well, we are just going to Germany for a long weekend. Hopefully get some Christmas shopping in at the same time! :)

I have one more day at work, and then off for six days. This seems very nice. I am looking forward to it. Suzie is going to stay with my cousins.

I just read a new quote from JK Rowling:

A wide grin across her face, Rowling said she delighted in the fact that, even after “Deathly Hallows,” there was still some speculation as to the true leanings of the erstwhile Potions Master.

“Snape is vindictive, he’s cruel. He’s not a big man,” she insisted. “But he loves. I like him, but I’d also like to slap him hard.”

Earlier, Rowling said she was particularly pleased with how Snape’s story played out throughout the course of the series, contrasting his character arc with that of Dumbledore.

“Although [Dumbledore] seems to be so benign for six books, he’s quite a Machiavellian figure, really. He’s been pulling a lot of strings. Harry has been his puppet,” she explained. “When Snape says to Dumbledore [toward the end of ‘Hallows’], ‘We’ve been protecting [Harry] so he could die at the right moment’ — I don’t think in book one you would have ever envisioned a moment where your sympathy would be with Snape rather than Dumbledore.”

That bit, “I don’t think in book one you would have ever envisioned a moment where your sympathy would be with Snape rather than Dumbledore” gave me major shivers! :) Oh, now i want to read the whole series all over again!! :D

  1. Hooray!!! So i’ve just heard! :)

    I think the surprising thing is not that Dumbledore is gay, but that JK Rowling actually admitted it! :D
