Some stuff

~ I tried Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for the first time ever yesterday at work, after hearing about the mythical things for years on the internets... I don't really see what the fuss is all about. They were too salty for me :/

~ The Teddy Band t-shirt is the cure for all ill in the world. Seriously. Last night at work I was really stressed and angry at everything, and saw how much there was going to be to do today and wanted to cry... this morning I put on that shirt and went to work, and despite finishing half an hour late I was in a remarkably good mood all day :D

~ Relatedly, shouldn't I be working less during exam leave, not more? I've done an extra 4.75 hours on top of my normal 16 this week.

~ Ahaha, apparently a couple of the guys from Sample Reception made out at a party last weekend? Awesome.

~ Dumbledore was gay?! Extra awesome!

~ Exams = not so awesome /o\ First one on Wednesday. I should study lots more (I've written out more study notes for this one exam than I did for all of last semester's put together already! But then, last semester I didn't have to do so well on the exams to make up for shitty coursework). But I'm um, going to the Labour Day races on Monday with Tracey? Because I'm not going to be at work on her last Saturday before she leaves for Australia, and I can't go to her farewell drinks on the 6th because I have an exam the next morning, so I couldn't say no to this as well.

~ Online journals are little filters that we each see every one else's lives through, the parts others choose to share with us. That said, we all think we are close, but really we seldom know *a lot* about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

ETA: instant messaging, yay? I downloaded Trillian today as a start in my quest to become more active on the internets now that I'm going to have a lot of free time. Add me if you want, though I don't promise any kind of interesting conversation. MSN: (a rather outdated email address!) or AIM: steffishaims

Rules: Answer the questions (all of them or only those of them that you want to answer; or add some of your own). Be verbose --your experiences are interesting! Tag three people whose fandom history you want to hear as told by them. I'm limiting this meme to HP only, but you can change it if you wish. Include rules and questions in your post.

In conclusion: Oh god, I've been in and out of this fandom for 5 years and never contributed at all D:

Saw OotP last night, but spent the whole time anticipating DH movie. Tracey's sister wasn't scary! Tracey has seen all the movies but not read any of the books; she's gonna read them after all the movies are done. Wrong way around, I think.

I'm tired, only posting this because I remembered just before going to bed.

I am scraping the bottom of the barrel for posts here :| Thank goodness this month is almost over.

The HP mood has come back in a big way!! I've been stuffing myself with epic fic, which is what I've been really missing in other fandoms. I like really long fic with a big plot, big life-and-death type issues, not just the relationship angst; that's why I love AUs so much when I'm reading in real world fandoms like QAF or bandom. Harry Potter will always be the best fandom to come back to for these things though, since it's so huge that I actually have a choice of MANY epic fics :O Basically, it's spoiled me for any other fandom, ever.

(This entry forward-dated because tomorrow's schedule consists of work then Harry Potter - no time for internets.)

Cute sample reception guy was all dressed up today, so pretty :D Because he had to go to court for a drink-driving thing though, so uncool. Minus 1000000 points.

(I just made sure I have this name at both GreatestJournal and InsaneJournal, in case fandom actually does implode. I don't think it will, but better to be prepared.)

Still not really excited about HP. I'll skim through HBP tonight to remember the important stuff, and read for as long as my eyes hold out tomorrow though, even if I'm not feeling the HP mood at the moment.

Best boss ever: "Why don't you preorder Harry Potter from the same place as me and we'll road trip it on our lunch break to pick them up?" :D

Unfortunately she then remembered she'll be in Tauranga on a field trip that weekend, so I'll have to send Mum to get it after all. Eh, I really can't get excited about this book anyway, it's been too long since I've read anything HP.

Finished. I have nothing to say. Except spoilers )

This is being written purely for my shitty memory, because damn. The emotional ride this morning was crazy. Seriously, I don't think I've been effected so much by a story, ever. Part of it can be blamed on the lack of sleep, and also on the fact that the very slight hangover from the night before's alcohol had arrived. But. I cried, actually wailed out loud. I thought I was mostly over it, sad for Harry being torn up but okay in general. And then, the ending. Lily, James and Sirius. And OMG Draco. *cries for Draco, wails, screams at the unfairness of the world* That was my actual reaction. It was 6am, and I hadn't slept. I checked the flist one last time, periodically sobbing, then went to bed. I curled up in a ball because it was freezing. I shivered because it was cold. I felt miserable. And I kept sobbing for poor Draco. I honestly felt like I was going to go crazy. My head fuzzed and it was like I was mourning an actual person. Basically, as I said in the last entry, Oscillate Wildly broke me. In a bad way, because of the terrible, dead way it made me feel - but at the same time it was wonderful, I felt so real and alive and... just perfect.

I have a new favourite story. I won't read it often, because that's not the kind of trip you want to go through all the time. I've been broken and I don't think I've quite put myself back together yet. But damn.
