    Did you know...

    That Jk Rowling has been logging onto Harry Potter discussion forums, not unlike this one, and has been calling herself 'Squidward'.

    Don't ask me how I know this. :roll:

    Well, isn't there a big squid in the Hogwarts' lake? Or is that just Lord of the Rings? Sorry, the trolls and Nazgul and Dementors all run together... :roll:

    Actually, if memory serves, there are many giant squid in the lake, and they're hunted by a tribe of mermaids(check the fourth book). I can't wait until the fourth movie, let's see them not mention the squid now! :twisted:

    I, for one, would be *estatic* if JK was a bona-fide ceph fan. However, do you think maybe her name is in tribute to Spongebob?? Squidward is one of the characters on that show...

    Just wondering!!! :)

    Rowling's usual accompaniment on the kid's best sellers list is Lemony Snicket, with his Series of unfortunate events. It's up to eleven books, and the eleventh book features some unfriendly octo-like creatures. The cover shows some tentacles in the background, some with suckers, and others that are less friendly.
