I feel like I need to post just because I actually have the computer to myself, and can be signed in to LJ for more than five minutes at a time. (Everyone's in bed, obviously, as it's almost 3am.)

However, I find that the only thing I have to say right now is that Reese's Peanut Butter and Banana Creme Elvis Cups are absolutely spectacular. I promise to have something better for my next post. It'll probably be about Order of the Phoenix, which I'm going to see at midnight Tuesday. YAY!

(Seriously, though, they really are spectacular. You must try them!)

[ profile] goobalicious finished OotP last night and called me around midnight. Sis on Book 5, Mom of Films 3 & 4. )

She's still a Hufflepuff though. I think she's pretty chuffed to be sharing a house with Cedric and Tonks.

Oh! And now, she wants me to write her a drabble that's a twist on the Time-Travel fic cliches. You know, there's a lot of fic out there where Hermione travels back in time to when the Marauders were still in school and, of course, proceeds to fall in love with Sirius, Lupin, Snape or a combination of the three. Goob's asking for a Lupin time-travel drabble where he goes back in time to when McGonagall is just beginning to teach at Hogwarts and falls in love with her. Yes. That's right. The sis is shipping Minerva/Remus. Which is all kinds of awesome, because septuagenarians need lovin' too. However, I hold to the strict "exactly-100-words" definition of a drabble and her specification are just way too specific for any kind of drabbling. :p

I wasted some time today (okay, a couple of hours) going back through the archives of this journal and updating my tags. (Don't judge me. It was that, or pack. And you lot know how much I like lazy.) Anyway, I came across this post from two years ago, when Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was released and everyone was posting their spoiler policies, and I didn't have one, as I was never going to read those books, and probably never read any posts about them either. It was a fun post, and I discovered that I was not alone in my Harry Potter apathy and there was much bonding and rejoicing and snarking.

However, as you all now know, it has since come to my attention that I was OMGSOWRONG! I have since seen the error of my ways. (Also, at that time, I asked not to be included on any Harry Potter filters. This no longer applies, so if you are someone with a Harry Potter posting filter, hook me up!)

So, I apologize to all my Potter-free friends who I've abandoned, and I apologize to all of my Potter-loving friends for blowing off your recs for so long.

Mostly, I just wanted to use my newest tag.

So, what you're all saying is, I finished the Harry Potter series just in time for a bunch of the HP comms to be randomly deleted. Nice. Now, it seems to me that I am fannishly unaffected, because I only have one squicky HP ship and as far as I can tell no Remus/Hermione comms have been deleted. Shut it, y'all. You know I have to have at least one hopelessly UC ship per fandom.

As of this moment, even though I've created a greatest journal, I'm not going anywhere (I'm hardly ever HERE in the first place), and I hope that I won't have to relocate this journal (especially since I just went back to having a paid account after months and months with only six icons to choose from). However, the main reason I use LJ these days is to read my f-list, and if you all leave, I guess I'll have no choice but to follow. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and - well, you get the point.

So far, I've read through Book 3, and I'm totally digging it. I've actually enjoyed each book in the series more than I did the one before it, so I'm very happy about that.

Favorite Student: Neville. Just because I got all teary at the end of Book 1 when he got 10 points for Gryffindor. I guess I have a soft-spot for hapless. (Y'all, I know I sorted my sis into Hufflepuff, but if she was an actual HP character, she'd be Neville.)
Favorite Professor: Minerva McGonagall. If I was an animagus, I'd turn into a cat too.
Favorite Weasley: Ron, of course, because in my head he's played by Dean Venture.
Favorite Character (All-Around): It was Hagrid for the first two books but then I met Remus Lupin. (Lupin is made of WIN, y'all!) And then I met Sirius Black, who now claims the title of MY MOST FAVORITEST. (And then two of these characters left Hogwarts. But they still exist in the HP universe, right? Oh, dear. This is going to turn out bad for me, isn't it?)
Shippy?: The books aren't very shippy yet (Do they even get shippy?), but I know there's a lot of fandom shipping, which I haven't paid much attention to, because I didn't know what the deal was. Now that I know, I have to say that I'm a Ron/Hermione girl. And, mildly, a Harry/Ginny girl. Her crush is too cute.

Wow. I totally need some HP icons, don't I? Can anyone point me to good book (not movie) icons?

I'm visiting with my folks this week, so I haven't been able to read my f-list since the end of last week. I'll try and catch up this weekend!

My sister and I are both reading the Harry Potter series for the first time. Yesterday, we had this conversation:

Me: You're a Hufflepuff.
Sis: Thanks! [thinks] You're probably... a Ravenclaw, or... [long pause].
Me: Or a Slytherin?
Sis: [relieved] Yeah. I was totally going to say Slytherin, but I didn't want to hurt your feelings.
Me: You're such a Hufflepuff.

I'm trying to eat dinner and update at the same time, so this will be brief and scattered:

  • I have equal amounts of love and hate for The Office finale. The parts that were awesome for me were super-awesome, but the parts that bothered me, bothered me in my very soul.
  • I'm about to begin reading the first Harry Potter book. I'll try and let you all know what I think about it as I go.
  • I voted for Blake Lewis. And I'll do it again.
  • I hope that this week's episode of VM didn't turn any of you off regarding Invisible Children. If any of you are interested in seeing the documentary, I have a loaner copy that I am more than happy to ship out.
  • Anthony or Daisy had better win Shear Genius. Actually, I like the final four, and would let any of them cut my hair, but I just like them best.
  • That's all I got. Very boring.
