Intro and then some...

Hello faithful bloggers. I more or less created this blog for two reasons. One, I am very bored and two, I love facts, figures, and general trivia. I also discovered that there are many other people out there who call me frequently to ask me questions, such as "Who was the British King during the American Revolution" or "Who played Tracy Turnblad in the 1980's film 'Hairspray'". People who know me tend to consider me a trivia geek (hence the name of the blog). Well, here is a blog where people can ask me those same questions, allowing me to answer or do research and occupy my time.

Just to start off the blog, here are some Harry Potter facts for you:

1. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Sorcerer's Stone in the US)
2. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
6. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
