Backseat Blogging

Going on hiatus for a while. It's been a long time coming, and I'm still here, just not here here. Right? Right.

I'm amazed at all you mothers and fathers that work, write, and take care of children! You guys are super heros!!

But I am failing miserably at blogging and writing and working! I'd much rather succeed at one than fail at 3. So...

When my third novel is written I will be back! I'm just having a hard time focusing on so many different areas in life and I need to dive into my novel fully. Because it's bitchin'. And I love it. And I need it to be awesome on paper and not just in my head!

Happy Summer guys! See you all soon!

Midnight Potter Madness!

Short and sweet and picture-ific. Movie was...amazing. I have lots to say about it but you will hear none because I like to keep people neutral till they see it! So. Bring a tissue or two, and go and enjoy asap!

People kept moving too much, it was hard to get good pics of all the characters. I missed an incredible Bellatrix (she looked fierce!!) AND I missed a fun Hagrid who was also great!! (He got lots of cheers when he came in!)

There is a Mad-eye Moody, and a very bright pink Tonks in there.

No one in particular, just the side of our line. We look far back, but when they started calling individual theaters we got right up front! Great seats: Top row, middle!

CREEPY good Voldemort! He got on the news, and was taking pictures with people ALL NIGHT!(if this is you, I would love to give you credit! Let me know and I will! You were great!)

There is a professor Trelawny in there! She was great too! (again, I offer credit, if you will let me know!)

The mask was insta-sweat so I didn't wear it much, but people made me promise to have my movie bud take a picture so there you are!

I have more, but my computer isn't letting me blur faces for some reason, so I don't feel comfy posting them! Sorry! But the lines were so fun! People were awesome! Movie was *thumbs up* and had a wonderful time!

Hope you enjoy your weekend! Will be back Monday!

But don't forget my HP buds!!

Things You Look Forward To

Today I wanna discuss with you dudes! Granted, I will be out for the afternoon with work, but I will be back in the evening so don't use that as an excuse to slack off...

Firstly! The first "episode" last year was so cute/funny. So glad they did another!


Pick one question, pick all questions I don't care! But I do urge you to join in and answer something! I wanna know! 

What scene are you looking forward to most in the new Harry Potter movie?

Me, there is so much I look forward to, but the stand out scene I want is Mrs. Weasley and Bellatrix. "Not my daughter, you bitch!" CRAP! I got chills. I remember reading that line the first time and my heart nearly exploded! I was SO nervous for Mrs. Weasley! So much sadness by that point, and I just NEEDED her to be alright but at the same time I NEEDED HER TO KICK BELLATRIX'S ASS! Ya know? It was a very powerful mother to the rescue moment. And I loved it. And I can't wait to see it.

What has been your favorite book?

I loved 3. It has been hard to keep 3 as a favorite after 4-7, which were all good competition but it has always been my favorite. It's the first time you get a really good glimpse of how much deeper Voldemorts evil grip has tainted. How it isn't just Harry that has suffered and been struck by loss. I mean, you hear about everyone before then, but you never have seen it yet. And the introduction of Sirius into the novel just opens a new can of crap that has happened to people. Besides the fact that I have adored Sirius Black even before you found out he was on the good team. That helps ;)

Where were you/ how old were you when you picked up the first book?

I was around 15 when I started the first novel in 2001 after the 4th book was released. I was at my dads for the weekend and my sister had gone out on a date with a boyfriend. I was bored. My dad was upstairs, probably asleep, and there was nothing on tv. My friends were all an hour away cellphones weren't THE thing yet. So, as I sat there on the couch debating just giving up and going to bed like a loser at 7pm on a friday night, I noticed my sister left her stupid kid book on the table.

I had heard of Harry Potter but it wasn't something I was interested in because I was 15 and that might make me seem less cool. Cause. That's important and all...But rather than go to bed, I flipped it open to her marked page and started reading in the beginning middle without even reading the back flap to know what it was about. It only took one page for me to NEED to know wtf was going on! I loved Harry and I was concerned about how he got where he was and what was happening. And that was the beginning of my obsessive love 10 years ago. My sister took me to see the movie the very next night, the weekend it was released as a matter of fact. 

Are you going to see the movie this weekend? If no, why not?! Are you insane?! 

I AM! And yes. A bit.

If you could be anyone from the books, who would it be?

I would be Tonks. I love Tonks. She's bitchin!

Let's not forget that even though this is a major HP mania week in honor of the movie, it's the books that built everything. And it's the woman who built the books. And let me tell you, while this is sad, the last book was truly a depressing, exciting emotional trip when it was released! BUT then, you could at least console yourself with still having movies to look forward to! *sob*

If you haven't read the is wrong with you!? ^_^ But seriously, you're missing out on SO much magic and awesomeness if you haven't and I urge you to do it already! The books, they are incredible. JK weaved such a realistic, wonderful, in depth world you just can't miss out on!

I'll be back Friday with pictures of the release night!

And don't forget to check out the other HP Maniacs this week!

Harry Potter Mania!

Hurray! And *cry* the week is finally here! I have my tickets for midnight Friday. Do you? Two weeks before the release my theaters started selling them. And 2 weeks before the release my theaters were almost sold the eff out!! And I'm talking, 15 rooms in almost everyone one in the surrounding areas and they were all almost gone!

This week is all about HP. I'll be coming back to my old schedule for this week only. Today is just about showing off bits of the events that have already gone on around HP and letting you all know of my fabulous HP Mania companions!

Wednesday is just a fun discussion I want you all to participate in!

And Friday I'll be posting pictures (if by some MIRACLE I remember my camera) of costumes, my costume, and all the festivities at the theater! I donno about you guys, I LOVE the lines and waiting! My movie bud always gets a good spot, because he's fabulous and we always have a great time!

I can't believe this is the last time ever, though! *sigh*

But in honor, this week is being celebrated by some amazing bloggers and everyone else who is obsessed!

I'll tell ya, nothing has ever captivated me the way Harry Potter did. To people that don't get it, don't feel the same, we're very weird. But that's alright. It's hard to imagine people like that that don't get it, to me. So I can understand how they feel...sorta...

Lot's of theaters are doing something very cool. Mine is playing all 7 already released movies back to back all day long on the 14th for just $25.00. UNFORTUNATELY I'll  be at work. But I bet it will be an awesome, butt-numbing experience!


Did you see the farewell? Omg.

I donno about you dudes, but when the crowd started chanting "thank you" to JK Rowling, I lost my cool.

London premier interviews!!

And lastly!

The last days on set! boohoo...

See you all Wednesday! Get pumped! And if you're the HP scrooge, don't ruin this for the rest of us. I'll confringo curse your ass so fast...  ;)

Be sure and stop by my fellow HP lovers this week for all your HP needs! Everyone has something different and fun going on so you don't want to miss any of it!


And, if you hadn't noticed, I have gone Death Eater in my profile pic for this occasion! (bad to normal after this week) This was last years model, which won't be too different from this years DE model. Mask was homemade, painted, and carved by yours truly!

Happy Monday!
