Money Can Buy Happiness

Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling who is always one to get herself into the headlines has revealed she thought of killing herself while penniless and suffering from depression as a single mother.

At the time, Rowling had separated from her first husband and was living in a cramped apartment with her baby daughter. She was only able to pay the rent after a friend had given her £600 for sexual favours.

"We're talking suicidal thoughts here, we're not talking 'I'm a little bit miserable,'" Rowling said.

"Mid-twenties life circumstances were poor and I really plummeted. The thing that made me go for help . . . was probably my daughter.

"She was something that earthed me, grounded me, and I thought, this isn't right, this can't be right, she cannot grow up with me in this state."

Old Knudsen who has been there himself said: " I know after I watched a couple of the Harry Potter films I to wanted to kill J.K. Rowling the Hollywood sell out and myself but I couldn't do that to the world of blogging."

After the last couple of sub-standard books JK Rowling wouldn't have been blamed for wanting to end it all except she was too probably too busy laughing her way to the bank as she is now one of the world's richest women due to the success of her Harry Potter books.

Fellow author Terry Pratchett commented on the news about Rowling: " Er I was going to say something, its on the tip of my tongue no its gone."

Maybe it can't buy happiness, but it can rent it, that and a cauldron of whiskey.
