Today was Harry Potter mail day!
Firstly, I got a WAND! From Alivan’s! Yes, I have a genuine wand and it’s so sweet. I’ve been swishing and flicking and trying to produce a Patronus, but with no such luck.
It was a present from Chris as congratulations on my new job.
Secondly, Ivy (swankivy) sent me a Ravenclaw badge and a Harry Potter pencil. THANKS IVY! Harry Potter rules. Hahaha.
Had an okay weekend. I did get to talk to Amy (liesandpromises) and Helen (pixiedash) a lot which is always good. We had the worst fly infestation ever, though. Ew. I think they started in one of Aidan’s old diapers. GROSS. At any rate, it was horrible. We probably had at least 50+ flies in our house this weekend, and ew. I just don’t want to think about it anymore. I think we got it all taken care of and it’s good now. No more buzzing in our house.
Friday night, I hung out at Rob’s with his brother and his friend from school named Brad. Josh S bought us all pizza. Yummm. We watched Boondock Saints again. I LOVE that movie and I must own. I mean, come on. Hot Irish guys with sexy accents, liberal usage of the word FUCK and lots of guns and violence. What’s not to love?
Quote of the night: “Hey bitches, come get some pizza.” – Josh S.
Seriously, it’s a wonderful movie and I am going to buy it soon. Probably the same time I buy Hitch and Meet the Fockers. All movies I’ve seen with Rob. Hmmm, interesting coincidence, eh?
Hmm. I destroyed the side of the SUV (whoops) on Saturday. Hung out with Chad for a bit and Christy yesterday. Church was neat, I got to see people I hadn’t seen in a while like Kim and Katie P. Oooh, ooh, and Jon C gave me a kiss on the cheek. *swoons* I got a nice big hug from Joshua A too. He makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Besides, PJ was back and it was SO GOOD to hear him speak again. Even though he spoke at The Grove last Tuesday too.
After church, I went to a baby shower for a good friend from college and saw some people I hadn’t seen in YEARS. It was awesome, strolling down memory lane. Boy were we some drama-addicts even back then. Haha. Good times, though. I’ll try to post pics later.
I went to the park yesterday and took pictures. Tried to relax and let God talk to me, ya know? I saw some fascinating plants and bugs. I watched the ants working in this huge old tree and it was amazing how organized they were. I enjoyed my time there. Don’t know if I’ll be going back. The ranger caught me speeding as I was leaving and tried to chase me. I’d gotten out before he could get me, though. Oops.
I’ll go to a different park next time.
My writing course has begun and I like it already! Wheee!
I just finished a book called Perfect by Natalie Friend. It’s mindblowing. I mean, she captures the teen voice perfectly. I can’t describe it any other way. I sent her an email telling her how much I loved the book and asking if she was planning on writing more. The only thing is that it might be a trigger for those with eating disorders. Otherwise, it was good. Very good. I recommend it highly.
Perfect was kind of serious, so switching gears to the latest Georgia Nicholson was hard! It still is. She is still as silly and immature as ever. I’m sure I’ll get into it okay once my mind switches over. I’ve been reading so much YA Fiction lately that I’m having a hard time differentiating between books. I guess I should do less reading and more writing, eh?
Speaking of, I finished two other books this past weekend. Royally Jacked, and Spin Control. Both of them were great, very funny, and nicely written. Had a fun and real voice. I’m looking forward to Niki’s next book as well. In fact, I’m wanting to read ALL the books with those fun covers!!
Oh my, I need to really get to writing so MY book can be on amazon with one of those fun covers!!
Mmmm. LOVE reading YA Chicklit. It’s gooooood stuff.
I am bloody freezing. Excuse me while I turn off the ceiling fan.
Okay, much better. Had to get a blanky too.
Time to go start dinner. Later, dudes and dudettes and stuff.
