guys. GUYS. HP7b premiers tonight.


Hubby and I are hosting a party at our place, YOU CAN COME. We will have snacks and drinks and watch the Best Of the previous movies (PoA, why do you break my heart? You are shitty but I love you anyway!) and geekery will abound.

ALSO. What's up with the new LJ theme-banner-thingee? It's like a strange fusion of LEGOs and Candy Land.

"When You Are Old" by William Butler Yeats

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

man, i do not want to work right now. i'd much rather go to the football game, which is only a 5 minute walk away and costs nothing. grr....

i finished my sketchup model for drafting- which is good, because it's due on monday. problem: i forgot to add that one column that prof. bollinger recommended in my corrections, so it's really visible. but i really don't want to rip the whole drawing apart just to add it in. i spent all last night and all this morning fixing the bloody roof, so i'm kind of sick of this project. (EDIT: so i went back in and added that column. it only took me a bloody hour. *sighs*)

more than anything, i just don't want to work on my studio project. i have to go to the model shop to get dowels for the section model, because the scale is frickin huge and i didn't plan my supplies out yet, but that requires leaving campus. i have no gas, and no money to buy it. the dowels only cost ~50cents a pop.


i'm on a big hp kick right now. and i offered to beta a severitus fic on, which time-wise is probably a really bad idea, but it's national novel writing month and i haven't actually done anything. i miss writing. i miss being creative. i can't wait for christmas break, because then i will have a month and a half of no school. granted, i'll be working, and helping my mom pack to move across the country, and it IS christmas, but still... free time, thank god. thanksgiving break doesn't count- i have three projects to do while i'm gone., and when we get back i have four days to do four more projects. that isn't conducive to relaxation. god, i hate school sometimes.

the guy on the computer next to me is logged on to the network using my password, so i'm hesitant to leave the lab while he's here- theoretically he's saving stuff on his own flash drive, but he could mess something up with my network files after i leave and i wouldn't know. granted, he's been doing his own work for three hours so i don't think he would do anything like that intentionally, but accidents happen.... it just makes me hesitant. but i feel kind of bad for him- someone called him and he was explaining that the only reason he's using a campus computer is because someone stole his laptop. (not in the careless, i-left-it-on-the-desk-for-five-minutes kind of stolen, but the malicious cut-the-lock-and-took-everything kind of stolen. which sucks.) still, i'm being cautious. which means i'm here and could be working.... but again, i really don't want to.

oh my god. OH MY GOD!!!!!!!! *flails hysterically*

guess what?! (LOTS of spoilers here!) )
*weeps* this is the best day of my life.

so, i definitely have to leave for work in like five minutes, but i just wanted to make a quick update. today has been great! after waking up, i read hp7 aloud to jess and- no spoilers!- i have to say i'm quite impressed. spoilers for the first few chapters here )

anyway, i left jess to read on her own and took paddy to the dogpark again with cait and jess and duke. this one was one that cait's been to before, so we let the dogs off-leash and they ran around a lot by the water. ^_____^ but paddy got pooped out half-way through- she's still all fat and sausage-shaped because no one at home takes her for walks. and then it started to rain and we left anyway. ah, well. we'll go again monday, with bri.

and jim is pro'ly getting a great job this year- the guy called him this morning (last night?) about it and he's practcically hired to this one kitchen. yay!!! i'm so happy for him.

ack, okay now i really have to go to work. it's raining hard- which is nice, except that i have to drive through it, and marshy hates water, he hydroplanes like nobody's business. little bugger. so! leaving a few minutes early. ttyl!!!!

so i got my harry potter book last night, after all. *grins*

pottermas eve, aka: potter ragnarok: )

but i haven't started the book yet. mostly because i'm on call for work in an hour, which is absolutely the suckiest timing ever. i need sleep to function at work, so i went to sleep last night and left the book on the floor. and, waking up today, i can't really let myself do anything, because i don't want to get half an hour into the book and have to stop reading again to go to work. hence the massive lj update instead- i'm trying to occupy myself so i don't go after the book.

if i didn't have a harry potter book to read, i would be spackling the bathroom and prepping to paint, or checking out books for school, or doing something else that's productive. instead i'm all tense and excited hoping i get to start the book today. *sighs* sometimes, life reminds one of torture.

i had harry potter/chrestomanci dreams last night, among others. i blame caitlin for this.
myurbandream: (the geek shall inherit the earth)
harry potter 7 is coming out at midnight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *flails* this is the end of my existence, y'all.

cait and i are meeting bri and sav and rhian and rachel at the borders at lakeline mall, and then cait and i will go to b&n at the arboretum to meet sam and get my copy- my brother's copy, actually, but he's in germany. ha!!!! and melissa's in padre- i called her to make sure she was coming to border's, but obviously that's not happening. *eyeroll*

today was good, otherwise. woke up early to a massive thunderstorm, didn't end up getting the oil in my truck changed like i'd intended, went to work, came home and took paddy to the dogpark with cait and jess and duke. came home and took a nap. organised pottermas eve schedules with rhian. and here we are! cait wants to get out the door this second but i refused. this is a night that must be documented in posterity.

if i get a copy of the book tonight, i am not sleeping again until i finish it, so i'm glad for the nap earlier, though it was short. and now we go!!!!

ps- thank god for fanfiction.

so, this is strangely realistic.... i was hoping to get back the one i saw at caitlin's house about voldemort- it involved ice cream, i think- but no luck.

My Harry Potter Spoiler of Doom is:
Lord Voldemort is killed by Hermione using Avada Kedavra
Get your Harry Potter Spoiler of Doom

and i stole this one from bri!!!! and she's right, the whole concept is hilarious. people are stupid. *eyeroll*

god, i am SO distracted right now... i've been zoning out ever since i got home; my mom is listening to the tapes of hp5 in preparation for the movie coming out this summer, and it's insanely distracting!

....i definitely just zoned out again.

anyway, what i meant this post to be about was a recap of how totally awesome a-kon was. even though i got sick- dunno what with, i'm going to the doc's office tomorrow morning, but i had a headache friday and saturday, and i've had a sore throat since saturday as well. mom says i have tonsillitis or something like that, maybe strep throat. so- everyone i was around at a-kon, this is your warning!!! anyway, cos-playing rocked on saturday. we looked amazing, and we were going as a group, so people were always taking pictures of us, and we're in the a-kon picture archives or whatever they're called. we walked the dealer room a lot, and artist alley was fantastic, and the cosplay ice-skating saturday afternoon was a blast, too. man, we had so much fun. *grins* and i saw rhys and zuri in the lobby on sunday morning!!! that was weird; i hadn't expected to see them, although i'd known they were going. and i didn't recognize zuri in her blue wig and cat ears. *eyeroll* oh! and the photo shoot- there was probably a hundred cosplayers from naruto all in one place saturday afternoon, after the ice-skating, and we were the only sanin who made it into the photos. that was fun. and some of the other cosplayers were amazing, as well. there was one really good rock lee, and one of the timeskip sasuke cosplayers was pretty good, too. and all of the sound nin, and haku and zabuza, although i don't think they came as a group. but anyway, it was a blast- and we're already planning who to cosplay as for next year. we're looking at the siblings from scrapped princess- i'd be pacifica, which means i get to be the only one showing cleavage again. but these costumes are gonna be SO much harder than the ones we put together in a week for a-kon this past weekend. *worried*

bri's post about the weekend is much more thorough than mine. go read it if you're really interested. mostly it was an amazing weekend and i had a blast. and jim got hella drunk friday night. *woobie* but i love him anyway. ^/____^ i just zoned. hoo~oo...

i meant to put a drabble up here, but i'm way too distracted to post anything right now, not with the harry potter tapes playing. it's interesting, though. i think i only read book 5 once, and i'd forgotten most of it- i know the basics of canon from fanfic, but i keep getting sucked in to little scenes i don't remember, or at least not clearly. who else is excited about book 7 finally coming out?!?! *grins*
myurbandream: (Default)
it must be the weekend, then!

i just took an hour nap, trying to stay awake to read frickin jean-jacques rousseau. and i can't spell his name anyway. grr..... i hardly ever encounter a book that i have trouble comprehending. not focusing i've had and struglled with and (mostly) beat, but this time i actually find myself getting to the end of the paragraph and realizing that i have absolutely no clue what the heck the guy just said. that's kinda weird, and it's really bloody annoying. i'm on page 80 of 137, which is decent, except i have a paper due on this sucker on like monday or tuesday. *seppuku* so i'm determined to finish it tonight.

i'm in jim's room- have been for pretty much the whole weekend since yesterday afternoon, with a few exceptions, like to eat or go to my soccer game or when he exploded the vacuum and i couldn't breathe. (now it just smells like fabreeze in here. *sniggers* i teased him SO much about it....) it's alright- i've mostly been working, and he ought to be (*eyeroll*), so it's not like quality boy-time, but still.... anyway, right now he's sleeping for a bit, and i have like four hours of reading yet to do still... *mopes* we may watch a movie later.

gack! i found all three lotr movies at walmart for 7.50 a piece!!!! we were in the checkout line before i could make myself put them back. *exasperated* i'm so horrible.

i'm adding the complete hp sereies in paperback to my wishlist. all i have is the third and fourth in hardcover. man, everyone and their brother is gonna get jossed come july. *sigh* that's so depressing! but i'm depending on jkr to leave the ending after book 7 open, so we poor fanfic writers can still thrive on something!!! (i hope...)

well, i absolutely can't avoid my dead philosopher anymore, so.... ta.
