Harry Potter and the Welcome Lack of Magazine Pretension

Hard as it is to believe, there are some grown-ups out there who scoff at Harry Potter and the lovable gang at Hogwarts. Which is why I was so pumped to find a totally earnest Harry Potter-related item in New York Magazine, complete with in-refs and a non-patronizing use of the word "Muggle" (possibly the most over-used word in the "let's describe the crowds waiting for Harry Potter books" media lexicon). Props go to author S.Jhoanna Robledo for dropping lesser-known HP arcana like galleons AND knuts, plus the correct use of "apparating" (which some publications can't take for granted). If this post is indicative of too-high levels of Harry Potter geekery for you, relax, I'm only doing it for the hits. And if you believe that I've got a S.P.E.W. button that you can wear.

One of my favorite things I did at Fishbowl, reaching extraordinary heights of nerditude as it was written on a Friday night from about midnight to 1 am. Oh please, what exactly are you doing right now that's so impressive? Hmph. Exactly.
