I PRACICLY LIVE ON THE SET COME ON!!! lol xxxxxxx Lillie age 13Avatar Image says: Whee! Now this is a Happy New Year! *blows noisemakers*Avatar Image says: To all of Leaky, all of the staff, all of the hosts, all of the "Fiddys" and "Fitties" alike out there, and to all the people who have grown this network of fans, thank you so so so much for a wonderful year filled with entertainment, conversation, support, laughs, and all the really, really wonderful honest gifts you give all members of this community every day, every hour, to the second. Thank you all! All of you make my life filled with so much more laughs, theories, events, celebrations and parties, and just general good cheer and support! Thank you so, so much. I've only started checking up on Leaky within the last handful of months, and i am ADDICTED! I have it bookmarked, i have the widgets, i just joined fittingitin.com, I'm friends with Melissa on Facebook, of course I'm subscribed to the podcasts, and to the fitting it in podcast, and am looking forward to the tour of pottercast coming to Santa Monica or LA sometime again soon!! Love you guys and have a FANTASTIC New Year! Being within Leaky is like entering Honeydukes Sweetshop--every sweet and wonderful and zainy thing you could ever want--only you don't need any knuts, sickles, or galleons to enjoy it. The galleons are in the friendships here Sorry for this very sentimental message that reminds me irrevocably of Slughorn, but if there is a time to write this sort of thing, New Year's Eve may be it!Avatar Image says: And it is now officialy New Year!( In Scotland) Let it be a good one to all you wonderfull Harry filled people out there. xxxxxxx Lots of Love Lillie Can I be a Pottercaster when I grow up ?? xxx YAY!!!Avatar Image says: I'm sitting here listening to pottercast to end 2008 and begin 2009. I love pottercast!! u guys rock.Avatar Image says: Okay so all the stuff with Jo is great of course. Some things I had forgotten about, "Pistachio!" for the bowl of walnuts, and "Kingsley I choose you!!" Oh my gosh that had me crying the first time I heard it, but it was a joy to laugh at it again, and of cours "Wak-a-Deatheater" also very funny, cause really movie Moody is not at all what I pictured Moody like, (Not your fault Brendan Gleeson) just the way they designed him, and the Durmstrang stafs are cool, Moody's not so much. and his strap on eye? No, thank you, it looks cheap and I am sure magic can do better than that. Any way Happy New Year, thanks for the laughs!Avatar Image says: KINGSLEY I CHOOSE YOU! lol I laughed for weeks xxAvatar Image says: It was nice hearing Jo again, but those two Pottercasts were definitely at the end of 2007 (I downloaded them on 18th and 24th December) and not in 2008.Avatar Image says: What ever happened to the Slughorn song?? I LOVED THAT!!!!!!Avatar Image says: when i read it i laughed so hard whene harry kissed ginny
