NOT A NEW YEAR'S POST

This is most definitely not a New Year's post. It just couldn't possibly be. Put simply, writing a post for New Year's Day is absolutely nowhere near random. It's expected; what's worse, it's conventional. So, Happy Non-New Year's Day to whoever actually reads this stuff. (Besides, the New Year started on the 23rd of September--veha'meivin yaveen.)
I reject this reality and substitute it with my own. It's more fun, and in addition it's cheaper on the gas bill.
J.K. Rowling must know that her books are translated into about 70 languages. So why in the name of Deborah Norville has she given her purportedly final Harry Potter novel the nigh-unstranslateable name "The Deathly Hallows"? Uh-uh. Sorry, Mrs. R, that's a major boo-boo.
Flapjacks flip-flopping through the foggy evening while the brass band plays on and on and on with 56 bits of the Energizer Bunny lodged in the tuba. With a hey-nonny-nonny and a ha-cha-cha!
