1. Drama (of the game wankage variety) sucks. You lot know me and that I am probably the nicest, most diplomatic person ever. Let's just say I was so pissed off yesterday that even *I* couldn't write a diplomatic email telling said person off. *sigh* God I miss AAH. I really, really do.

2. Yes, I just ordered this. After hemming and hawing all day, I gave in and bought it.

3. I'm down (according to H&M and their pretty stretchy skirt) a size 14!! Still a tiny bit tight, but I'm feeling very good about myself. I'm ALMOST down 20 pounds since the beginning of May. Weight Watchers and Wii Fit FTW!

4. *squee!* [livejournal.com profile] hp_summersmut starts posting tomorrow -- er... in about 15 minutes!!! I really should figure out a posting order, shouldn't I. There's some really, really amazing stuff in this round. I think you guys will really enjoy it.

5. Went to an LSAT meeting this evening and am back to feeling good about stuff again. I shall overcome you, you damned 154!!

♥ How are you guys doing?

So, totally thought that today was my LJ anniversary. As it turns out, it was yesterday. So -- happy 5 years on LJ to me! I still remember hanging out in the AaH chatrooms late at night with [livejournal.com profile] risen_one, [livejournal.com profile] mellanor, [livejournal.com profile] profstark and the whole lot of us -- and the night [livejournal.com profile] chaptsickmess gave me my LJ code. And here I had hoped I'd actually manage to keep the blog going. Guess I did!



I don't know how many of you are Dancing With The Stars buffs, but this is from two weeks ago, the Macy's Stars of Dance performance. It's the cast of A Chorus Line and usually I wouldn't squee about this.

Save the fact one of my friends from high school is in the cast. He's the one in the black tank with the number 17 on his chest. Name's Nick Adams, and I must say it's insane seeing girls squeeing over him on some of the B'way message boards. But he looks the same as ever... and he STILL kicks higher than the girls.

Mostly, we had a happy ending.

Shortly after I emailed the post, I decided to suck it up and call my father and VERY CAREFULLY ask if there was an envelope on the counter. The conversation went thusly:

Me: So... uh... did I happen to leave a manilla envelope on the kitchen counter?
Dad: yes you did.
Me: Uh... please don't look in there.
Dad: Why?
Me: No reason. Just... not for your eyes. At all.
Dad: Okay...
Me: Actually, can you toss it in the den on my stuff. Or even in the dining room?
Dad: I'm just... going to leave it where it is.

Hang up with him and have a nerve wracking next hour or so, wondering if he'll actually NOT look or if it'll be the little kid syndrome. Don't touch the stove... what does the kid do? Touch the stove. Had a ton of drama at work involving a new credit card machine and my being unable to transmit the batch for whatever reason which involved me driving back to the store after leaving to call boss and explain. Get home around 7:40 and mom's home.

Enter envelope still sitting on the kitchen table.

Run in. Grab it.

Mom: what's that?
Me: *on way up the stairs* noooothing.
Mom: So, where are you going with it?
Me: To my room.
Mom: What's in it.
Me: just never you mind.

So... I can only hope they DIDN"T see what's in there. Mom, would likely be a bit better with what it was as she and I share romance novels. But as I was wibbling with [livejournal.com profile] wook77 romance novels and sign-ups for a pr0n fest are two VERY different things.

Last thing I needed was my father seeing a request of: Snarry or Harry/Draco, kinks: D/s, BDSM and rimming.

Crisis Averted.

I hope.

Bullet Point No. 1:
*totally stealing the idea from [livejournal.com profile] avengangle*

Am driving into Cleveland this weekend for a band concert on April 12, 2008, at 7:30 P.M. at Franklin Circle Church (it's at the corner of Franklin and Fulton, in Ohio City [Cleveland]). Needing to invite people so if there's about 7 of you who could either say you'll be there or send regrets, that'd be aces. ♥

Bullet Point No. 2:
I see the ticket info for Equus is up. Is it sad that I notice the ticket info for the Lincoln Centre Summer Festival are also up and I'd rather spend my $300 bucks to see Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson (and one other guy whose name escapes me) in 3 different Beckett plays?

*whimper*

Bullet Point No. 3:
There's nothing here. I was just taught to have a minimum of three bullet points. No, wait, there IS something! Bunnies, please LEAVE me alone. I have [livejournal.com profile] snarry_games to finish. And [livejournal.com profile] rs_games to start. *headdesk*

So... according to today's XKCD comic -- Tom went about the whole Basilisk thing the wrong way.



*cackles*

Oh the crack fic. Someone needs to write fic of Tom instant messaging Harry the Basilisk eye.

ALSO -- am in the process of uploading the video from last night of my singing at the concert. :D

Of course not. *sigh* dammit.

In other news, it's February 1st! All those watching [livejournal.com profile] hpvalensmut take a gander. And if you're not watching... get to watching. I'm tres excited for it.

I have a massively long thank-you post that is forthcoming. But right now I just want to say thank you to you guys. This past week and a few days have been so very, very rough -- and I just want to thank you all for your support. I'm doing better and the memorial service was lovelyl

I'm still in mourning for him and I know I will be for a while. I just want to thank all of you for your support this past week. It absolutely means the world to me.

For those of you new to my journal -- no, it really isn't that depressing, I promise! In fact -- here's a bit of fun and friendly competition!

Support Team Phoenix!


Go Team Phoenix! So much better than Team Iguana Dragon. Really... a lizard?

Summary: It's the week before James' wedding and Sirius decides to throw a party for Lily & James. Shame he misunderstands the meaning of a 'Stag and Drag' party.
Author's Notes: For those unfamiliar with a 'stag & drag' party, it's a party held for both men & women held by the wedding party to raise money for the bride and groom -- and it involves heavy drinking and gambling. Which isn't exactly what Sirius has in mind. Thanks as always to my wonderful beta!

Number 32nd to get my book and got my picture taken a TON of times last night. :D the suggestion to go as Trelawney was absolutely brilliant.

Also? I TOTALLY cleaned up during the great Snape debate. I even got the girl who was running it, who thought he was evil to agree with me.

Start time: 12:49
End time: 7:49

Seven Hours on the dot and two pots of tea later... Also got through the soundtracks of all 5 movies once and am halfway through CoS as we speak.

Really -- hard to imagine that we now have closed canon. Really, really hard to imagine. I'm just... very depressed. Not because of the deaths, but because -- that's it. This is the end and there will be no more midnight book releases to stand in line for. I just feel... like I've lost a huge 'thing' when I closed the book.

I will say? I liked it. Overall it was good. Still doesn't read like JKR's writing style to me though.

All that's in here right now are my initial reactions. I'm a 'speed' reader, but I still took my time as I didn't want it to be over in just 4 hours. Over the next couple of days I want to re-read to really get my thoughts down on each chapter. But right now -- the first initial thoughts.

My thoughts. Can we say spoilers? I think we can. )

The last fic before DH!

Title: Only a Memory
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thescarletwoman
Rating: PG
Character(s): Severus Snape, ??
Word Count: 3447
Summary: The memories of war are not always what they seem.
Author's Notes: I wanted to write one last fic before the release of DH. It was bunnied when reading OotP in that Snape always removed three memories. I'm guessing this comes into play in DH, so it had to be written now. As always -- to [livejournal.com profile] rose_whispers for the wonderful beta. I most likely will be reposting this after DH as there's one thing I want to tweak.

And what do you know, it's a poll too. Because I'm wanting to post a poll.

Heading up to Borders in the morning to get my wristband, then taking my car in for service. (boo. *mutters* this won't be cheap, I just have a feeling...)

Also -- if you didn't notice, I have a new layout. It's off a base by [livejournal.com profile] janine42584, but she was nice enough to let me edit for my own banner. *stares at Ralph*

And onto the poll! [And if you comment, no spoilers please!!!!]

[Poll #1024456]
thescarletwoman: (HP // Remus :: werewolf)
I want to have ONE final piece of fic up before Pötterdämmerung.

Okay -- side note? The Musician/Historian in me is friggin' DYING over this. And seeing Harry et all wearing the stereotypical Viking helmets with Ride of the Valkyries playing in the background. Er... don't ask.

In any case -- It's Snape!gen. And I'm about one part away from it being completely finished. But it's a fic I just want to write as I'm sure DH will either a, go into this or b, completely destroy the fic.

I'm really... not ready for DH to come out. I've been seeing everyone discuss what this means for fandom, and even I've had a poll about it. I'm not planning on going anywhere to be certain. But I know things won't be the same after Saturday.

Yes, there will be fic. And I know we writers are quite the resilient lot and we'll find ways around anything in canon. It's where we find subtext. It's how we all found ways to bring Sirius back from beyond the veil. I just have this feeling it's going to be different having closed-canon now.

What I'd actually like to see happen... no spoilers here! Merely, my own thoughts and most likely going to be unpopular opinions at that. )
thescarletwoman: (HP // JRK :: Rocks Fall Everyone Dies)
If you're reading the scanned copy of the book -- yay. If not -- yay.

Personally, it's sitting on my desktop but I won't open it. I will be waiting until the book is in my hands before I read a page. I just want it around so I can look at it afterwards and see if it was a hoax or not. If it is, it's a very elaborate one and some people need to have their heads examined. If it isn't -- *shrugs* whatever.

This is simply me saying that if you're reading the book, more power to you and I don't begrudge you that at all. It's just not for me.

To that end? ♥ you guys. Keep putting everything behind cuts as I love you for it. I'm not sticking my head in the sand. So just keep cutting the spoilers. I don't care if I'm one of the last to post my thoughts. I'm looking forward to the midnight release party at B&N, driving home and curling up with a nice pot of tea and reading -- most likely with the soundtracks of all 5 movies playing in the background. That's my idea of a good time.

In other news? I hate Verizon. I've driven over there FOUR times in the past week and now... they don't have my phone in stock. *mutters*
thescarletwoman: (HP // Snape :: Enchant)
Alright... first things first -- I'm not going anywhere. I know there have been trolls around and I can tell you for certain that I will not be posting spoilers in this LJ until AFTER I have my hands on the hot little book and have read it cover to cover and undoubtedly sobbed no less than six times but that's beside the point.

I was spoiled five minutes before I picked up OotP and still haven't quite forgiven the asshat for doing it. I read no spoilers before HBP. Right now? Yes, I'm clicking links and mostly everything is so absurd that it's laughable.

However, while at dinner last night, my father came up with the ending of the book.

Me: So what'll happen? Rocks fall and everyone dies.
Dad: No, this. Harry kills Voldemort. Voldemort kills Harry. And then everyone else commits suicide because there's nothing left for them. The end.

I ♥ my father. Seriously.

But what I wonder -- thoughts that aren't spoilerific, but am putting them behind a cut anyway )

So in regards to this journal -- After DH comes out, spoilers will be posted behind an LJ-cut until August. Any fic that may be written (as, hard to say with that) will definitely warn for spoilers.

I'm not out to spoil anyone. If I want to look at them, that's my choice. But no one else should have to see them if they don't want to.

*goes back to working on pretty snape!gen fic*
