the worst straying from source material for me was Harry Potter, the first and second ones weren't bad though they did change some things but the ones following were not too good. I still like them for what we got but they could have been so much better. I did get good things with my couple and they got married so I'm semi good.

a lot of states have bad drivers.

Hi, Dave! I saw what happened with your bank account. I'm really sorry that happened. Just make sure you get rid of that app and that the bank gets everything straightened out.

Hi, Sam! I'm doing okay, but I could be better. Still saving up money and counting the days until I have enough to get out of here.

Hi, Katie! Yeah, I've heard that the HP movies had those issues. I didn't see any of the movies after the first two. Oh, and I guess you heard that J.K. Rowling admitted that she made a mistake putting Harry with Ginny and Hermione with Ron. She said that it was mostly out of her own wish fulfillment and that in hindsight she thinks that Harry and Hermione made more sense and that Hermione and Ron would end up in marriage counseling.

The drivers there are nuts. What I mean by a combo is have an icon of him with a quote from him on my signature. Right now I have a Georgina Sparks combo because she had some quotes that I like and she is a compelling character.

I guess people are just getting worse and worse.
Hi, Mary! Well, then I hope you get your hair done and you get new jeans. Yeah, that's true, but they also got less taxes taken out of their pay which means they got to keep more of it. Oh, and I hope you let us know when you hear back from that job you applied for.

Yep, I've seen California drivers. They're the most immature drivers I've ever seen. Ohh, is that what you mean by combo? Well it looks good.

I think that the internet and social media has made people worse and worse. So has political correctness.

And I get that a lot of bad stuff is happening to you, Mary. But let's tone down the inflammatory meme stuff, okay? I don't want this to get too uncomfortable for anyone.

I just haven't gotten those types of things in awhile.

It hasn't been a month yet. I'm still looking, but it's hard. I thought I would get a job by now.

The pinworm scare yesterday didn't help matters.

I don't understand why people think it is perfectly okay to be stupid. It's horribly disappointing. It's a ****ing epidemic. People need to think better these days.

I post those kinds of memes on Facebook.

Mary...when are you expecting your tax return

Sam... Brown might still be a Pittsburg Steeler afterall...he's meetng with the Owner next week

Alex...I'm not going to jump the gun yet...it could be a random break in...I have to investigate the sourse of the break in....

well technically she never actually said that, the media headlines did and a lot of people were outraged without even reading the actual article (which I was at first but then read the article and it wasn't that bad. ) she definitely never said anything about Harry/Ginny (though she should have cause they're the ones who make no sense. ) and she definitely never said that Harry/Hermione should have ended up together or that they made more sense. she did say that in some ways they are a better fit which in all honesty is somewhat true. she also did say that Ron/Hermione might need counseling which isn't necessarily a bad thing since he does have self-esteem issues and she's critical a lot but in my opinion a lot of their issues derived from the fact that they were fighting their feelings for each other and didn't know how to handle those feelings given that they were teenagers. they made huge, huge steps in the last book and I tend to think that they would have gotten over those issues.

this s a comment I agree with.

Quote:
THANK YOU. I was getting so irritated that these stupid jeadlines continued to spout that bullcrap about JK basically outright stating Harry/Hermione should have happened. And the fans basically uproared without even really LOOKING at what J.K actually freaking SAID.

I agree with Rowling about the counseling too, because despite me liking Romione they DID have issues with self esteem and criticizing, so to pretend it would all just evaporate via marriage is ridiculous And yes, a form of wish fulfillment. I also agree with her when she says in some ways, Harmony would be good together.

But she still never said Harmony > Romione, nor did she say Harmony > HINNY and Romione, I still think she is adamant about Ginny being PERFECT for Harry, so everyone was basically jumping the gun with Harmony to get some viewers on their articles.

That being said, counseling or not, Romione I feel would have gotten it together and worked out, and you know what, I'm glad J.K kept it real because what makes this even better is romione will go through hardship and come out better for themselves and each other, and be closer than ever. I like that thought.

Oh, you're from California, Katie? I'm sorry.

Yes, I know that Rowling never said that specifically about Harry/Ginny, but when I hear anyone say that Ginny was "perfect" for Harry, that to me raises "Mary Sue" flags. Ginny was never that well developed as a character, she just seemed manufactured to be "perfect." As for Ron/Hermione, Rowling did say that was wish fulfillment, and I while I get what you're saying, I still think that Ron/Hermione was a bit unrealistic and that Harry/Hermione made more sense narratively. But that's just me. I have the same issues with CW couples.

Hi, Mary! Well, then you deserve to treat yourself to them.

I know, you still have a few weeks to wait until you hear back from them. I know, I've wanted you to get a job as well. But just keep looking while you're waiting, and I do hope you get the job that you want at that place you really like. How much time is left until you hear back from them, a couple of weeks?

Oh, I'm sorry you had to have that scare. But I'm sure you're okay.

I agree, Mary. I deal with a lot of stupid people these days. And I get it. Sorry, I do see a lot of those memes on Facebook.
