this is my dad. and me.
i know what you're thinking. who are those incredibly good looking people? well, that just means you're not good at paying attention, because i just told you. that be my father and i.
anyway, you can forget about that for now. because now i'm going to talk about myself. and also harry.
i WOULD show you a picture of harry, but i can't really, because he isn't exactly...real. i mean, i could show you this guy,
|more on him in a bit|
|no, he's not from glee. i know nothing about glee. i think i watched 4 episodes ever. please don't try to talk to me about it. please.|
in case you haven't gotten it by now, i do, in fact, mean harry potter.
in my family, i am by far the biggest harry potter fan. most of us read the books, and enjoyed them, but i'm (pretty much) the only one to watch a very potter musical, allllll of the potter puppet pal videos, and i'm CERTAINLY the only one who has, in fact, taken part in scholarly discussions about harry potter. i have not convinced anyone else how awesome all of those things are. well, mostly.
my father has been known to pull up potter puppet pal videos when bored. which i believe is interesting because he's the only one who never read any of the books or watched any of the movies.*
it's also my favorite. mostly because i'm in full support of beach parties in london, and because i love harry's song. my father also loves harry's song, even though this video is about 92% of what my father knows about harry potter. this song is also why we're here right now. my father was singing it tonight while we were all hanging out together, as a family. following was the final version he came up with.
my name is harry potter i'm a hairy guy...
nananalala hair in my eye....
ahnanananana i was a baby......
POTTER POTTER POTTER POTTER!!!!**
......eh, i got the gist of it
and that is the relationship that my father and harry have.
*i do not watch the movies. i saw the first two or three and managed to avoid the rest. i hold LARGE grudges against daniel radcliffe and company, for they murdered the harry, ron, hermione, dumbledore, snape, etc that resided in my head, and i am still unable to forgive them for it. i have also been able to hold onto my mental pictures of several lesser characters and settings by refusing to watch the movies. this whole movies-killing-mental-pictures thing is why i am greatly opposed to books being made into movies. it always ruins things for me. always. i could rant about this for MUCH longer, but i'll spare you.
**this part was, in fact, shouted. yep.
