1. I have a Dirty Santa party to go to Friday which involves a naughty gift exchange. Erg. I have absolutely no idea what to get! What is the right level of naughtiness, the best kinks to play to, etc. etc.? I'm thinking maybe a collections of Victorian erotica (if I can find one at the book store). I figure it counts as naughty, but is also vaguely interesting -- at least I find it interesting -- and I can't be the only one, right?

2. Last week, in the midst of making Christmas presents I broke the second of the two most useful cords in my interchangeable needle set. I had broken the other most useful cord a good year and a half ago, so I figured maybe it was time to buy the replacement set. The post man tried to deliver it today, but apparently there is 63 more cents of postage due, and I wasn't home, so I get to take a trip to the post office on Thursday. Mostly now I'm wondering how the company I ordered from managed to miss that $0.63 when they sent the package to me.

3. As part of my continuing efforts in learning how to draw, I submitted my gift for the exchange over at [livejournal.com profile] hh_sugarquill and I am ridiculously proud of it. It is Draco/Hermione (although in no way explicit) which is not any sort of ship of mine, but I figure drawing things you don't particularly ship is way easier than writing them (not that I write at all) since you don't have to worry so much about characterization and what-not.
So...Mistletoe Wars )

Oh, Harry Potter Marathon, why must you be on when I should be going to bed. Also, why must you be the bits with David Tennant, you know I can't resist that. Stupid work tomorrow.

In New Orleans for the weekend and playing Tour Guide/Cauffeur for the other out of town archaeologists.  I'm good!  I even managed, through no fault of my own, to arrange a celebrity sighting:  Jerry Springer at Cafe du Monde.  Really rather boring, but all the people trying to "subtly" take pictures with their camera phones were quite amusing. 

We also went to the aquarium, passed people from the HP convention playing Quidditch in Riverfront Park, browsed the French Market, and took a turn through Jackson Square.  All in all a quality adventure.

The family is back from their vacation in North Carolina, and apparently they are now in the possession of a piece of property there. My parents don't seem to understand the generally accepted forms of vacation souvenirs. [livejournal.com profile] undy_niable is currently reading the book (what book you ask? oh silly you.) and he needs to hurry up so I can discuss with someone. I did discuss with [profile] glowwormtu but that was over aim and its more difficult. Really I have nothing to say but I felt the need to post more often so yeah.

So, up until this morning I was only mildly excited about the release of HBP tonight, or well tomorrow morning. I was going to skip the obsessive buying a copy at midnight and reading all night long because there is no one around to go to the release party with me, and I didn't want to be the creepy adult like person hanging out by themselves. Now I'm excited and jittery and there is no way I am missing the chance to buy a copy tonight. Plus [livejournal.com profile] undy_niable called and charged me to pick up a copy for him, so I guess I have to go. Only two hours until I can get my B&N wrist band which entitles me to purchase a book at midnight.

SO I tried to post this Harry Potter threesome thing the other day, but my brother's computer sucks big time. ARGGGGG!

I wonder if that one means I'm Hermione, 'cause that would be tres cool.

Last night I defragmented my brother's harddrive, but it doesn't seem to have done any good. Of course that could be due to the fact that it decided to go crazy on me after the defragmentation and not turn off - so I had to pull its plug.

I'm not going to spellcheck this entry because the spellchecker will flag all of the html and that would be annoying, so please disregard any miss-spellings.

Got to see Prisoner of Azcarban today. Yeah! Cuaron is my new hero. The film was amazing. Love Lupin. Dementors are well spooky, particularly with the whole freezing things bit. I even liked the whole normal clothes instead of uniforms thing which I shuddered at when I read about it in the Newsweek ages ago.

Love the fact that my brother left me a voice mail in the middle of it, saying how mad he was that I got to see it a whole four days before he would even have a chance.

Grrr. I miss my laptop. It's greatly annoying to have to schlep down to the computer room when ever I have something to say. Hence the great deal of last night... posts.

Anyway, last night International Cafe went down to the pier for fish and chips, or in my case fishcakes and chips because breading fish is just wrong. We then hung out on the beach like a bunch of townies or tourists, until the idea to take over the closed crazy golf place came up. So then we played mini-golf with tennis balls and cricket bats. There was much stopping and gawking by passers by.

On the way home I finally saw the ron-bus, which does not have a very good picture.

Paper number two - down. Now all that's left are the three finals, which start next Tuesday.

I'm greatly enjoying the buses with Harry Potter advertisements on them. So far I've seen Harry bus, Hermione bus, and Sirus bus, which begs the question "What happened to Ron bus?" Every time one goes by - which is every six minuets according to the bus guide - I just have to smile. Can't wait 'till monday.
