Does anyone know anything about JK writing books 8 and 9? or is that just a rumor that going around?

Re: OFF TOPIC Cafe: "The Pensieve"

Anyone catch Dancing with the Stars last nite?  One of the couples did a Hogwarts version of the Vienniese Waltz to the opening theme of the early movies. 

 

Fantastic! 

 

Then the GOG (Grumpy Old Goat) judge objected to its lack of "classical appeal".   The Other judges disagreed with him and he vanished.  (Well not quite, but the exchange was spirited.)

 

ROTFLMAO

Oh, I am sure that is just a rumor. She is working on an HP encyclopedia as well as another book that is completely unrelated to Harry Potter. So sorry to be bearer of bad news, but no more HP books, I'm afraid.

:smileysad:  awe...

 

Do we have any news as to what she is writing in the encyclopedia? Is it just a run through of all the characters and stuff?

LONG LIVE HARRY POTTER!!

Has anyone ever seen a couple of times on TV that every once in a while that there would be some snide rude comments about Harry Potter?

Re: OFF TOPIC Cafe: "The Pensieve"

my brother and sister were teasing me and making fun of harry potter. I have to give them credit, even tho its irritating after a while, this one was funny:

 

Harry Pothead and the Chamber of Weed....

 

its best to just laugh it off haha that one wasn't to hard to laugh off. but when they started making fun of dobby i almost cried, which caused them to make fun of him more. i couldn't help but get teary when i think of dobby in his lil shoes that are way to big for him. has anyone else noticed how adorable he is in those???? its just so sad imagining him dieing again. :'( I use to get really up set when people made fun of dumbledore, but they got bored of that quickly cuz it didn't affect me. it doesn't effect me much anymore after hearing about the stupid actor who plays him. he completely ruined my image of dumbledore!!!!! Gosh he ruined the whole thing, im so angry with him. if only i could meet him someday and tell him that he needs to read the books before he goes off and tries acting the part. and then not brag about it because there wasnt anything to brag about... he sucked!!! so ya somehow im not effected to much. it might also be because we get to see him at the end of the movie and read about him in the end of the book, but dobby we cant!!! and im really not to excited to see dumbledore (the actor, i was excited in the book) but i am anxious to see how he plays the part. i wanna see if he messes this up too! ugh is there anyway of getting ahold of him? like an email or anything? o how i would love to tell him to read the books.... o yes then he would probably be a so much better dumbledore! X( ooo now im all mad cuz im talking about that stupid actor again...... and sorry if this offends anyone who likes that actor, if anyone can like that actor.
