I have spent my hard earned dollars there. ;D The lack of foot traffic worried me about that location, but I'm very glad they survived.

I'm not knocking the place, I hope they thrive. It's just that my dance card fills up pretty quickly these days.  ;)

Bobblehead you have a valid gripe, but with that being said, I sincerely hope all of you troglodytes go out and support imagine atrium as much as you possibly can--- that place is the bomb.

Congratulations. Actually, I was afraid you'd never make it through the first year.

I would argue for your making every effort somehow to get details of your events and offers out there earlier. This is the second time I've seen a listing for something you're doing that I would have participated in, if only I had more advance notice. (The Harry Potter event was the other--I would gladly have pre-ordered through you at a higher price than through Amazon, just to take advantage of your event, had I know about it just a bit earlier. As it was, book was ordered, other plans had been cemented.)

Potter readers on fan sites and elsewhere on the Internet have speculated on the sexuality of Dumbledore, noting that he has no close relationship with women and a mysterious, troubled past. And explicit scenes with Dumbledore already have appeared in fan fiction.

Damn you fasteddie. Someone pass the brain bleach.

Breaking News! Dumbledore Out of Closet, Fagwizard!
__________________________________________________________
"Harry Potter" author reveals that Dumbledore, Headmaster of Hogwarts, is gay

October 20, 2007
BY HILLEL ITALIE

NEW YORK (AP) -- Harry Potter fans, the rumors are true: Albus Dumbledore, master wizard and Headmaster of Hogwarts, is gay.

J.K. Rowling, author of the mega-selling fantasy series that ended last summer, outed the beloved character Friday night while appearing before a full house at Carnegie Hall. After reading briefly from the final book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," she took questions from audience members.

She was asked by one young fan whether Dumbledore finds "true love."

"Dumbledore is gay," the author responded to gasps and applause.

She then explained that Dumbledore was smitten with rival Gellert Grindelwald, whom he defeated long ago in a battle between good and bad wizards. "Falling in love can blind us to an extent," Rowling said of Dumbledore's feelings, adding that Dumbledore was "horribly, terribly let down."

Dumbledore's love, she observed, was his "great tragedy."

"Oh, my god," Rowling concluded with a laugh, "the fan fiction."

Potter readers on fan sites and elsewhere on the Internet have speculated on the sexuality of Dumbledore, noting that he has no close relationship with women and a mysterious, troubled past. And explicit scenes with Dumbledore already have appeared in fan fiction.

Rowling told the audience that while working on the planned sixth Potter film, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," she spotted a reference in the script to a girl who once was of interest to Dumbledore. A note was duly passed to director David Yates, revealing the truth about her character.

Rowling, finishing a brief "Open Book Tour" of the United States, her first tour here since 2000, also said that she regarded her Potter books as a "prolonged argument for tolerance" and urged her fans to "question authority."

Not everyone likes her work, Rowling said, likely referring to Christian groups that have alleged the books promote witchcraft. Her news about Dumbledore, she said, will give them one more reason.

In the last chapter, Harry is sitting in a diner eating onion rings. There is a guy in a Members Only jacket at the counter. Hermione is outside trying to park the car. She comes running in the door, Harry looks up. The next page is blank.

Well played, sir.  LOL.
