The Elder Nail

Remember that bottle of nail polish from my Deathly Hallows ensemble? Well, this is what I did with it.



Hufflepuff stripes done with a crappy makeup brush that was as hard as a rock when I got it, as this was pre-Born Pretty brushes. Thumb is the Hallows mark, done with a toothpick. Only two out of three as the toothpick didn’t lend for the finest lines.



The Deathly Hallows Ensemble

At least, here’s the important part.



See, what did I tell you? 365 posts over the course of a year is so much better than forcing myself to do a post a day since I’ve already messed up. Go me. Besides, I’m going to be a college student soon so I doubt this will be the only time that the whole missing a day thing happens.


And if it makes things any better, I’ve probably done around 5,000 words worth of writing this weekend, so I am writing. Somewhere. Just not on this blog.


Next week is going to be so freaking crazy. Monday and Tuesday I have plans to do stuff with friends. Wednesday I have  to go back to the oral surgeon so he can see how my lovely sewn up mouth is doing. Then we’re getting my friend’s dog who I’m going to be dog-sitting for three weeks. That means three dachshunds for three weeks. That should be good for a few blog posts. Plus, I figure I should write up a wisdom teeth report at some point. Anyways, back to my crazy week. Thursday I’m going to see Neon Trees perform, and then as soon as that’s over I’m hightailing it over to wait in line outside a theater for the Deathly Hallows midnight premier. Not only is it a midnight premier, but it’s a double feature, meaning they’re playing Part 1 and Part 2. Part 1 is the movie starting at midnight, so after going to the concert I’m in for 4.5 hours worth of Harry Potter starting at midnight. I am going to be so dead when it’s over, but… What better way is there to say goodbye *sniffs* to Harry?

Deathly Hallows Midnight Premiere

Yes, I was one of those crazy people that went to the midnight premiere. We got there around maybe 8:30 or 8:45 and there were already people lined up against the wall on both sides of the hallway of the mall. Supposedly 10 theaters at that mall were showing it. I think that’s what my friend’s dad said. It was at 2:30 in the morning so I don’t really know… The line I was in was for 3 theaters, so there were at least 6.

At least the theater I saw it at was indoors. One of my friends had to wait out in the cold for hours. Another was insane and decided to get there at 2. That’s right, she planned to wait for 10 hours. The theater people told her to leave or they would call the fire marshal.

I sat next to a potted plant for 2 1/2 hours.

Oh, and I cried when Dobby died.

End of an Era

This week is bringing the beginning of the end. The first of the last two Harry Potter movies. I’m going to the midnight premiere with my friends, which of course, at the time of writing this has not yet occurred. I told you, I’m addicted to scheduling.

Of course, I’m the biggest nerd ever for Harry. I once told my dad a complete plot summary of the 7th book on an hour and a half car trip. This was not just a broad summary. This was like Sparknotes, could ace the test without reading the book, summary. Algebra is a foreign concept to me, but remembering the plot of a book? I could practically rewrite it for you on the spot. My brain was built for memorizing plots and quotes. I remember events, which is incredibly handy in history class.

I will, undoubtedly, end up blogging about the midnight premiere.

I’m also planning on bringing the dog sweater I’m knitting to work on while I wait.

But that’s a story for another day.
