Like many Harry Potter fans, we are convinced that our Hogwarts acceptance letter was hidden away by cruel parents on our 11th birthday, or else it somehow got lost in owl-post. Either way, we've been cruelly denied the opportunity to stroll the famous, cobbled street in order to shop for magical school supplies.
We'd like to take a moment to give sweet, sweet thanks to our girl J.K. Rowling for introducing us to the coolest wizard of all time-- Harry Potter. Why? Because he rules. Remember how Harry fought off Lord Voldemort and had an awesome pet owl? It's impressive stuff.

In a move destined to make you wish that J.K. Rowling was your mom, the author of the 'Harry Potter' series recently won permission to build two massive 40-foot high tree houses in her backyard at a cost of almost $395,000.
Esteemed thespian and movie icon Alan Rickman has played a lot of villains. Being such an evil presence requires a heavy hand in just about everything he does, including some of the most mundane activities. He could make playing with a litter of happy puppies seem like the most sinister thing a man can do.
