Harry Potter Finer Things Club


For Michael's Blogfest, rather than telling the fictional tale of me and my imaginary buds at Hogwarts, I thought I'd tell you about my real life Harry Potter mates---the Harry Potter Finer Things Club that started out as a trio, just like Harry, Ron, and Hermoine.

In the midst of the Harry Potter Series, me, my sister, and my nephew used to huddle together at family gatherings to discuss all things Harry P.  This didn't go unnoticed by the others, and at one family party my brother claimed we'd formed our own Finer Things Club (ala The Office).  Little did he know we'd sink our grimy meat hooks into his joke and turn the "club" into a whole thing---engraved bookmarks and all.

Here's a new video I made in tribute to my HPFTC mates.  If you watch, please note: a major perk of club membership is getting to taunt non-members regarding their non-membership, so sorry 'bout that.  But hey, if you can answer the initiation questions contained in the video, who knows---we just may grant you a blog-level membership. ;)

Standing proud beside my HPFTC mates. Just as I stand by the taunting...it's the only regularly activity we have so far, after all...

LOVE this - thanks for adding to our street cred via YouTube!

Finer Things Club :-) what a great idea. I love the video, and it reminds me that I've never tried going into a movie theatre with a pie that has twirls of cream on top. Must try it sometime.

Oh, that's fun! Most of my HP buddies are online--I'd love to have family stuff with people who 'got it'! Very cute!

I only see a black box where the video should be. I like your idea though.

I knew some of those answers but not all. The video was too funny. Looking forward to the movie.

How fun! You did a great job with the video and I can answer all the questions but the horcrux ones, so I guess I"m outta the club. Boo hoo!

Great job!

I just had to click on your blog because I loved your title (found it on A to Z). Then when I saw Harry Potter and The Office in the same post I knew I had to follow. What other choice did I have considering I watch The Office every night and have just finished the Harry Potter series for the bazillionth time.

Ooh ooh! *raises hand a la Hermione* Shall I answer all the questions?
Great video! I'd love to share a pie in the theatre :-)
