Mid-Week Reads: HR, HP

Will I ever be tired of reading analyses of Harry Potter? The evidence so far suggests otherwise. 

Via Aishwarya, this article that's somewhat about tennis and Andy Murray (who? I don't follow sports and I don't have a TV) but mostly about not-smiling in public being okay, because unfortunately that needs to be said.
"Which isn't to say people are inherently unhappy. Just that they've got better things to do with their faces than walking around bending their mouths up like idiots.

"The people who want Murray to smile are the same ones who try to make me dance at weddings. They want the world to conspicuously enjoy itself in a manner of their choosing, and they turn vaguely sanctimonious when they encounter pockets of resistance, as though their definition of fun is the only one that matters."

Alankrita said I'd like to read "Why We Hate HR" and she was very right.
