Geekcle: Making Pop Culture Geek-outs Easier, One Clevelander At A Time

"We all have those obsessions," she added, adjusting the Captain America shield pin on her purse.

Harry Potter Stamps! Plus 16 More From Pop Culture

harry-potter-stamps-small Im a huge fan of snail mail you know, the kind that comes on paper and into the actual box at your house? Sometimes with all the digital material that blankets my days, Im in need of some real, live paper to get my hands on. Throw in some red and green markers and a fresh, blank card, and I lose my mind a little. Not that I always get my cards out, you see, but I sure do appreciate it when you do, so get to work. (Please.) Also, like many, many of my fellow Muggles (with maybe a dash of wizard, but Ill never tell), I love Harry Potter.
