July 31st

Remember how a year ago I rode The Forbidden Journey and it was the best thing ever? Yeaahhh.

Do you ever stay up until 7 AM watching movies with your friends, and then realize you're mental? Yeah, I did that last night. Ip Man is a good movie though. Watch it.

So this Pottermore business. Let me tell you something. There are these douchebags that are creating like 30 beta accounts, then selling them on eBay. I hope Voldemort lays a big ol' Crucio on their faces.

July 30th

One year ago today I was at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter with my mom. Today, I saw Deathly Hallow pt. 2 with my mom. Apparently July 30th is our Harry Potter day or something.

I cried just as much the second time. But at some different parts, and much more about Snape. Go figure.

Damn, I love Harry Potter.

POTTERMORE IS IN TWO DAYS

Oh God I want to get sorted. And of all the tests, one written by JK Rowling is going to be pretty accurate. And I'm going to answer completely honestly...I don't want to like, cheat to get into a "more desirable" house. I think I'm a Ravenclaw though. Oh God what if I have to answer questions to get into my common room? Asdsfhsjdasd.

Davanni's hoagies are the best thing.

July 28th

So apparently I'm going to see Cowboys and Aliens at midnight...woohoo.
And my friend is making me dress up like a cowboy.
Maybe I'll take a picture and you guys can be the judge of that.

I am in a crap mood right now.

Everything is all sjhaknskjdahngekg.

July 27th

My sleep schedule is all messed up and I just want to take a nap or something.

Last night I bought some Ben & Jerry's and in the middle of the container, right in the ice cream, was this huge green piece of yarn. Someone please explain this to me.

My everything is in pain or sore or sad. I must be sleeping poorly or something, because my whole left side feels discombobulated.

"Death smiles at us all. All a man can do is smile back."

I got new jeans today, and a lovely shirt for under $8. Sales are a wondrous thing, I tell you. Also the shirt is bright orange.

I'm going to watch The Graduate soon, I promise.

July 25th

I'm having one of those days where I don't feel like blogging because I don't have much to say. I did have a marvelous walleye sandwich for dinner though, so that's got to count for something. I'm also craving a bagel like crazy right now. Food, glorious food.

July 24th

I went to the zoo with Brennie today! It was really fun, although we walked around outside a lot and it was quite warm. Also, the bald eagle was gone because of construction. I was not a happy camper. I saw the owl though, which is cool because owls are cool.
We also went to the Mall of America afterwards and saw the Winnie the Pooh movie! It was really adorable and funny, although I do wish John Fiedler was still around because the new voice of Piglet is meh. The other new voices were okay but  Piglet's bothered me. Also, I love John Fiedler. He is lovely in 12 Angry Men.

Here's a fish I saw today.

July 23rd

I just thought you all should know that I just typed "July 23th" as the title. What.

I'm listening to Avril Lavigne's first album, a.k.a. the soundtrack to my elementary school days. She was my first concert, too. Also I always played "My World" when I played Mario on my Gameboy Advance...I dunno why, it just pumped me up. Shut up.
So yeah, I still know most of the words.

I'm going to the zoo tomorrow with my beloved Brennie! And since I bought a new charger for my fancy camera, I can bring it and take pictures!
I hope the owl is out. I love owls.
And those green eels scare me.

July 22nd

I am bored and lonely. I am doing nothing tonight, and there's no one here, and I don't know what to do.

I did dye my hair earlier, though.

It turned out more red that I expected, considering it's the same stuff I've been using. Oh well, it'll fade in like a week.

Thursday, July 21, 2011

July 21st

I need to go to Target and get more hair dye. Also I apparently need to get my hair cut, because the ends are sucky. I can tell my hair is growing semi-fast because I can see my roots, but it's not getting any longer. Probably from the bleach. Time for a trim!

July 20th

I am currently listening to I Love You Song from 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, thanks to May bringing it up...good times. I love this version of the song, and it's super fun to harmonize with -

Happy birthday, Sarah Bear!

Dana and I have talked on Skype so much today. I'm excited for her to come home. August 1st! We're gonna get our nails done.

I think I'm ready to see DH pt. 2 again soon. And maybe cry again. *Sob*

I got a Google+ account. I really love it thus far, especially the group video chat! Anyone who reads this and knows me should add me to their Circle!

I'm watching an interview with Ellen McLain right now. I love her and her voice work and her singing and everything. I want to hang out with her. She is so articulate.

Gonna hang out with Hans tomorrow, wheeee.

July 16th

I can't handle Harry Potter right now. Every time I see a gif of a sad scene, or a trailer, or hear the music I have to click away. My emotions are all messed up. Best movie ever. Or rather, most meaningful movie ever, perhaps.

I just wanna be a wizard.

July 15th - SPOILERS

SPOILERS

So, I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. This is going to be like a review/general thoughts/whatever comes to mind sort of thing.
But basically, it was the most amazing movie-going experience of my life. I went at 3 AM with Kady, so the people there were less hyped up because a.) there were fewer of them (thought still a lot) and b.) we were all tired at hell. Kady and I got there at like 1:15 so we could get good seats and there were about 20-30 people ahead of us in line. We were the second people in our specific theatre though, so we sat front and center!
I wore my Gryffindor scarf and I brought my wand from the Harry Potter theme park, so that was pretty freaking magical.
Anyway, there were like 20 previews beforehand so I just sat there all nervous waiting for it to start, and the second it start I don't think I blinked for the rest of the movie except to wipe away tears.
The film didn't start with the WB logo, which was weird because all of Tumblr and I were like "omg last time we're gonna see the wb logo ahhhh" but THEN it was the AMAZING PIECE OF MUSIC AND SNAPE AND EVERYTHING WAS BEAUTIFUL. I thought I was gonna cry right then and there. And then the logo showed up and the movie got all serious business.
So Gringotts was cool and stuff and I love Helena Bonham Carter and wow Emma Watson's boobs were all over the place. But they went to Hogwarts like 15 minutes in and that was groovy.
I wasn't overly thrilled about how Harry just showed up in the Great Hall with everyone there, but it ended up working out pretty well. Pansy Parkinson had that great line, so yay Pansy.
Also the whole not going to the Ravenclaw common room and Luna and the Grey Lady stuff was different, but I think it was necessary to change that because it helped progress the movie. Side note: THEY CHANGED SOMETHING FOR A GOOD REASON! DAVID YATES, FINALLY YOU'VE LEARNED!
On that note, I like how the Ron and Hermione kiss went down. Obviously changed because there were no kitchen house elves in the movies, so the way it was done was brilliant.
The Room of Requirements being on fire was also wonderful, and holy cow Goyle falling into the fire was like...intense. AND THEN THE FIRE WAS VOLDEMORT. That was cool.
And every time Voldemort was like, stay close Nagini, I was like OH SHIT we're getting close to the Snape scene.
So there was that bit. The second the boat house bit started happening I was freaking out. I'd heard all over the internet that the Snape scenes were good, so I had high hopes. And guess what? Everyone was right. Alan Rickman deserves every award ever. (Also, he pronounced "pensieve" funny, did anyone else catch that?)
So um, The Prince's Tale. I cried. Like, serious crying. When Snape found Lily's body and he like, collapsed against the wall? Oh my God. I lost it. AND THEY STAYED SO TRUE TO THE BOOKS, THANK YOU JESUS. PERFECTION. And the music, my God. And the "After all this time? Always." was SO GOOD.
I don't even know what went on after that or anything else in order because it was all so good.
Fred's death = SO SAD SO MANY TEARS.
And Lupin and Tonks adkasjfhskb SO SAD.
Also Greyback killed Lavender? That was depressing and random.
McGonagall is the biggest badass of my life and I love her and Maggie Smith was going to chemotherapy while she filmed all of this SO Dame Maggie Smith is also the biggest, bravest badass ever.
Neville was epic too, with his slow motion stuff.
I liked how the final Harry/Voldy battle played out; it was good theatrically. I do wish Harry had done the bit about offering Tom a chance for remorse, BUT you can't have everything.
Oh and that dead Voldemort fetus Horcrux thing? Brilliant. That scene was quite good, too. Michael Gambon has become Dumbledore for me!
So um, the present day stuff ended and the epilogue started and I STARTED CRYING SO MUCH. I was like oh my God, this is the last time, the end of the last movie, the end of my childhood. Then the credits started and I was literally holding back sobs. I didn't want to leave the theatre. I wanted to stay there and cry. But I left, and I was still crying, but I was so so so SOOO pleased. It was a wonderful experience and I think they did the book justice and everyone was brilliant.

July 14th

Next time I write in here, I will have seen Deathly Hallows part 2. What a weird feeling.
I'm seeing it at 3 AM because all the midnight showings sold out super quickly. That probably means I should take a nap at some point, though. I may stay up late, but 3-6 AM is not a typical awake time for me.
I gotta get my Gryffindor scarf from my mom's house at some point.
Also, driving at 3 AM? SCARY STUFF. I'm nervous, for real. Plus I'll be all adrenaline-y.
But I'll do it, for Harry.

Harry Potter tomorrow night! (Hopefully!) I'm going to go try and buy my ticket now, or something. I'm antsy and I want to leave the house. Also I look nice. Soooo I want to go do something. What shall I do? What's open at this time?

Lexa, help me. Also, let's run away together. I need to get away.
LET'S GO TO CANADA.
I know their national anthem, so they'll totally believe we're legit Canadians.

Driving by yourself is one of the loneliest things you can do.

July 11th

I have been having really bizarre dreams almost every night for the past month. They're all completely different from one another and they are all extremely strange. My subconscious is a mess. I really want to try and figure out how to lucid dream though...I'd probably just chill in the TARDIS or something.

July 10th

It is storming so intensely right now! There is lightning all over the place I hope the power doesn't go out. Pfft.

I'm listening to the soundtrack from The Little Mermaid, and basically Alan Menken and Howard Ashman are brilliant. The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite Disney soundtracks and scores, so really it's just lovely. You should acquire it. Mulan has the best score though, even though only like four songs from it are on the soundtrack. Seriously, the song "Short Hair" (that really badass one when she's cutting her hair, you know?) isn't on it. It's on YouTube though. Well, the whole score is. But "Short Hair" and "Gratitude" are my favorites that aren't on the soundtrack. Oh Jerry Goldsmith. You are a musical genius.

Happy birthday to me! It's my last year as a teenager, go figure. I should go be rebellious or something.

I went to the zoo with my mom today. I love the zoo. I want to have a menagerie in my backyard.

I also had Dippin' Dots.

I should watch Mulan tonight.

Happy Fourth of July!
I keep seeing fourth spelled as "forth" - congrats, you're illiterate.

I guess I'm seeing fireworks with my mom and sister tonight...
I don't even enjoy fireworks all that much. I most just get bitten by mosquitoes.

Have you seen Robert Sheehan's face? Omg.

My contacts are irritating my eyes and it's going to take like a week for my new ones to come in because some crazy at the eye place cancelled my order because I haven't been in for over a year and she thought I might want to get updated ones. NO, I JUST WANT CONTACTS. I HATE MY GLASSES. THEY AR UGLY AND THE LENSES GET DIRTY AND IF I LOOK UP OR DOWN EVERYTHING IS BLURRY.

I WANT LASIK

July 1st


The power is out, so the internet is down. I'm going to see if I can text an entry to my blog, but if not I'll post this tomorrow.
I went to the Mall of America today, and on the way home got caught in the scariest storm of my life.
So yeah, no power. My room is a sauna.
