This post is not intended for non-readers of Harry Potter or people who don't like cats. If you are either of those things, no point in reading on.
Ok, so I just wanted to complain about the cats really quickly. While they both have been doing really well having me around all the time (Boku really seems to like me now, even though I can still only pet her while she is standing) Mona has become needy. I love my cats, but having Mona on my lap all day is really hindering. Plus, Mona has taken to sleeping with me...she'll come join me in the middle of the night (2ish) and wake me up by crawling all over me and then settling on my legs or in between so that I cannot move. And while I may be comfortable, the minute you can't move you really want to move. Ah well, I always said I'd like it if they slept with me. Be careful what you wish for eh?
Now the serious question: I've been re-reading the whole HP series to see if I can glean any clues from it. It's taken a bunch of my time, but been really enjoyable. I just finished the fourth book and there is one sentence that ALWAYS bothers me (since this is probably my 6th time reading it) and I thought maybe you HP readers out there could give me your take on it. Back story is that Harry is telling Dumbledore what happened at the graveyard. He just finishes telling him that since Voldemort has his blood, the whole "mother's love" protection is gone and now He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named can touch him. And, "For a fleeting instant, Harry thought he saw a gleam of something like triumph in Dumbledore's eyes." Ok, we all know by now that Rowling doesn't put anything extraneous or needless in these books. So what the hell is that supposed to mean??? Is Dumbledore secretly bad?
