I'd better consider watching Chamber of Secrets earlier than planned, or I will NEVER hear the end of it. Oneal has been torturing me enough until the movie actually started (thank goodness!). LOL. :p And I'm not sure if U-l-a-n will be able to refrain from making any comments.... (heheh). Nicee wasn't able to help herself. Well, at least she only commented about Tom Riddle. ;D Every comment almost feels like the Cruciatus curse has been cast upon me (the horrrrorrrrrrrrrrr!!!!).

Well, okay. So I've read Chamber of Secrets more than ten times or something. Why would I mind spoilers? It's just that when a book is made into a movie, you get a totally different perspective of the story. There are scenes that almost feel.... new. Like you've never seen them before. You know what to expect, and yet there are still surprises to be found. I would like to discover those surprises for myself....


Am still staying away from all my Harry Potter groups until I can watch the movie....


I finally got my brother and sister to "try on" the Sorting Hat at What do you know! They're Gryffindors too! I guess we're like the Weasleys or something....


That Sorting Hat trend is very interesting. All the Weasleys were sorted into Gryffindor. And yet, Parvati and Padma Patil are twins, but were sorted into different houses... Hrmmm.... But what exactly is the Sorting criteria? Although the Sorting Hat gives us ideas based on the songs it sings in the books, if you follow those descriptions to the letter, there will be inconsistencies. Hermione would lean towards Ravenclaw, for one. And then there's Colin Creevey, Lavender Brown, and Harry's other schoolmates from the same year level. My personal take on it? The Hat probably looks deep into your heart and mind and determines which values you treasure most or give priority to (courage, loyalty and being hard-working, knowledge, cunning and ambition), then that's the House the Hat will sort you into. But that's just my humble belief. Who knows what's truly going on with a talking and singing magical Sorting Hat? :D
