The Chamber of Secrets and Credit Cards

That - that right there? That's my hero. Neville Longbottom, a.k.a. best wizard at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

In case you haven't guessed yet, I've been watching a Harry Potter movie today. (: More specifically, The Chamber of Secrets. As I'm typing this, Neville's getting hooked on a dinosaurs skeleton hanging from the ceiling of Lockheart's classroom - perfect timing or what?

"Why's it always me?"

Why, Neville, who else could it be? You come back and save everyone's life in the seventh book, so you deserve to be a little dorky when you're a first and second year. Besides, it wouldn't be nearly as funny if, say, Hermione had been hooked up on that dinosaur's skeleton. She'd just scream some spell at the pixies and make them all vanish in miniature balls of fire or something. Boring.

Now, the other part of this post's title: Credit cards. What the heck to the Chamber of Secrets and credit cards have to do with each other? Some of you can see where this is going. ;)

In Economics class lately, we've been studying how to use a credit card responsibly, not fall into insane debt, etc etc. So I was thinking: Would it be irresponsible to buy the Chamber of Secrets using my credit card? It wouldn't put me in THAT much debt. Unless a living basilisk came with it. But if a basilisk did come with my new Chamber of Secrets, it'd be completely worth it.

What a great birthday gift idea! *adds to birthday list*

It'd have an interesting disclaimer ...
