Moar Potter

Well, I signed up for early entrance to the Pottermore.com site. I am still not sure what it's for or why I bothered, but I couldn't stand all the secrecy and competition behind getting in there early, so now I will find out, I suppose.

I will be SkullRiver204 over there. Yeah, they don't let you choose your own handle. It was either that or WitchSickle. All the other handles I had to choose from were lame, and WitchSickle sounds like a demented lollypop. I have decided Skull River could be a cool Mayan stream somewhere deep in the jungle, as opposed to an emo-goth nickname.

Skull River is a good choice, I think. I'm over there too! I'm AccioPotion200, which at least sounds like a useful way to fight.

"WitchSickle" sounds like an orange-and-black Popsicle that's only sold on Halloween.

I suppose Witch Sickle is supposed to be some sort of weapon, but I picture it more in the hands of Bellatrix LeStrange than Hermione or McGonnegal.

Or I guess it could be a silver coin in the hands of a witch. But I like the idea of it being a weapon MUCH better.

Yeah, see, when I see "sickle" I think of a sharp farming instrument, not a coin with a witch on it or something, LOL.

The choice of names.

It was pretty bad. And sort of insulting, really. I get that if they leave it open to the user to decide, some kids might enter some variation of their real names and put themselves in possible danger, but sheesh.

SkullRiver sounds pretty emo-goth to me. ;o)

The sign-up thing seems a little bizarre. I think I'll wait and see if real people actually think the site is worthwhile, after it's actually up and running.

I'll give a full report.

Actually, upon further reflection, SkullRiver could be a biker name as well. Vrooom, vroom.
