“A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, eleven o’clock. Harry looked behind him and saw a wrought-iron archway where the barrier had been, with the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it.
Smoke from the engine drifted over the heads of the chattering crowd, while cats of every color wound here and there between their legs. Owls hooted to one another in a disgruntled sort of way over the babble and the scraping of heavy trunks.”
Happy September 1st, y’all!

fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.
Oh baby. Keep talking dirty to me.

DROP EVERYTHING AND WATCH CHUCK!
i was seriously considering printing out flyers and handing them out to random passers-by, but this is the next best thing. you should be watching chuck.
here’s a short summary: chuck bartowski, a stanford drop-out, accidentally downloads a government supercomputer called the intersect into his brain. the next day, a CIA and an NSA agent show up in his small town, and his life is changed forever. it’s only five seasons long, and i promise you it’s worth it. this is very important.
and (as i’ve mentioned above) it’s on netflix. what are you waiting for? go. go now. drop everything and watch chuck.
