But before we get on to Harry Potter related things I want to share that today is my and the hubs anniversary! We have been married now for 4 years! And this is the time-line of our relationship up to marriage: You can scroll down the the Harry Pottery things if you like. I really don't mind if you do!
- September, 4 years ago, I started my job as an Arby's assistant manager(yea I know, right?...) Hubs was a fry cook (my employee. Yowza!) When I saw him for the first time I wanted him. Let me clarify. Ehem. I WANTED HIM. Got it? There was no love at first sight. I'm sorry but I don't believe in L@FS. But it was want at first sight for sure. I wanted to know him. I wanted to talk to him. I wanted to be friends. I wanted to hang out. And yes, I wanted to get all up in his business.
- Some time at the end of September, or beginning of October we had our first "date" which was actually just us riding around in my car smoking cigarettes and talking.(This is pathetic, but I actually started smoking cigs so I could have an excuse to go out back and chat with him when he went for smoke breaks. *hangs head in shame* It didn't work, either. I don't suggest it. An unhealthy and poorly thought out tactic.)
- dated through October.
- November 17th, 4 years ago, we woke up, I looked over at him and said something along the lines of I wanted to keep him (Channeling Casper much?) and he said okay, I could. We went to the store and picked out the cheapest rings we could afford, went to the courthouse and got the paper work, went to the most indifferent Justice of the Peace I have ever met (total buzz kill) got hitched, went back to the courthouse to file paperwork, and sat in the car for a good...5 minutes laughing and just being pleased with ourselves. Then hubs had to get to work.
And to this day, exactly 4 years later, every time I look at him I want him all over again. I want to talk to him, put my arms around him, hear him laugh. I love him like no other. I have never regretted not having a real wedding either, just for the record. (He is so wonderful, even though he doesn't like Harry Potter and gives me crap about reading books for 12 year olds, he still entered me in the contest to win tickets to see HP Tuesday night as a surprise! Didn't win but so sweet right?!)
On to Harry Pottery Imagination Wednesday!
So Monday I had you all think of how it would feel if Voldy had won.
Today I want you all to imagine you get THE LETTER! You are suddenly magically delicious and they want YOU.
Does jumping up and down and screaming for joy ensue? (I would probably pass out from the one big long squeal) Do you not believe it? (nope. Mean mean joke! Has to be! Not ME! Really!?ME!?)Would your parents be the supportive kind or the Dursley kind?(shoooot. Mom would be down so long as I could get her a dragon egg! She and Hagrid would be a total match made in heaven.)
Would you call all your friends and rub their noses in it? OH WAIT you can't, it's not legal to let muggles in on the wizardy secret! (Rats... we'll never see that look of loathing and jealousy on the face of that little foursquare biotch down the street...)
FINE but you can totally rub it in your siblings face right?(can I give her a pig tail? PLEASE!)
And then your parents take you school SHOPPING!
What shop do you go into first in Diagonalley?(A wand would be the first on my list for sure!) Do you need to go in them all or just the ones that strike your fancy? Do you go to the bank? Open an account?
And you're off! You parents come with you to say bye at Kings Cross? Do you rush for an empty compartment or do you hope to find a friendly face in an already occupied one?(I would browse the pickins of occupied comp.'s, hope someone friendly and awesome looking would take pity on me!) What do you do on your first train trip on the Hogwarts Express? What sweets do you buy?(ALL OF THEM! Nom. Nom.)
What weather have you come to Hogwarts in?(Usually always rainy. I like it!)What is the boat ride like? Nervous yet?!(Bout to pee myself, so nervous!)
HERE you can take a really amazing quiz to find out your house. I highly suggest it. (Thanks Melissa!)
(Jen-Hufflepuff!, Melissa-Slytherin! Lisa-Ravenclaw! Renae-Gryffindor! Laurel- Ravenclaw! Me-Gryffindor! WOOT!)
Are you SUPER nervous, all those magical kids staring at you?!(wth are you staring at? Never seen an 11 year old girl doing the pee-pee dance before!?) Or too hungry to care after this amazing adventure that was your first day in the wizarding world?
What classes have you always wanted to take? (potions, divination, transfiguration, arithmancy, ancient runes, charms, History of Magic! All of them!) What is the first thing you want to learn? (Transfiguration! Can I be a cat? No! A bird. Yes. Make me a bird! Eagle. NO Hawk! Yeaaaa....Colene the hawk...damn straight.) Would you learn mermish(I totally would! First mermish speaking wizard bird underwater...girl... That's gonna be me!) What teacher would be your favorite? Who would you be besties with, do you think?
Would you adventure into the Forbidden Forest even though it is so dark and dangerous? Would you hang with Hagrid?(indeedy! Every chance I got. But I'd bring my own snacks.) Want to play Quidditch?(Hells yea I do!) Would you stay for the holidays or go home? Do you think you could handle the exams?(Easy-peasy lemon squeezy! That's my spell. Did it work? Am I a wizard yet!?)
What happens when it's time to say goodbye to school and hello summer? (I'd cry...Do I have to go?!)
So, again, I must ask you to let your imagination carry you off today and tell me all about your Hogwarts experience!
HERE you can find out how to take Harry Potter college courses. No joke.
