Am I the only person here who doesn't give a crap about Harry Potter?

I read the first book shortly before the first movie came out and was pretty underwhelmed.

I admit, J.K. Rowling is up to some fairly sophisticated stuff for a children's book. I just couldn't work up enough interest to keep reading.

I think my biggest problem was that as a character Harry is just so friggin' boring compared to just about anybody else in the story. Hermione and Snape and even Ron had 1,000 times more personality than him.

I tried to watch a couple of the movies, but the special effects were just too cheesy for me. And the way the theme music blatantly ripped off "Swan Lake" annoyed the crap out of me.

I feel like I should turn in my geek card or something.

(Ducks rotten tomatoes).

How can you be sick of Harry Potter. When I went into buy my book the other night, I saw 40-45 year old men dressed as wizards. I watched them for awhile to see which kids were theirs - no kids ever came.

Thank you Harry Potter. Thank you.
