Weird Al -- with me

my kingdom for a chocolate ice cream bar!

Alright, so yesterday (Thursday) was bittersweet. I did some errands after dropping mom off at work and then headed home for a few hours. I ended up falling asleep from 12ish to 2pm, a nap I guess heh. Then I tried curling my hair again, this time with hot rollers. It worked! The curls only stayed in for two hours but at least they curled!

Anyway! I headed to Grandma's at 4 to spend time with them before they headed back up to Oregon. It was basically just Ben and I for two hours, everybody else had various things to do (nothing we had to help with). So we sat in the den, which is the coolest place in the house, and chatted while cuddled up together. It was really nice. Then we took some pictures, which you'll find at the end of this post. I really enjoyed the time left I had with him. When we were all ready to leave we had a group hug to say goodbye to the house. I'm going there tomorrow to load up the car with the stuff we have to drive up but I was a part of the hug because it would have been just me tomorrow. It's better to say goodbye to the house and to it's memories with family then alone don't you think? I took photos of the house, it will probably be torn down which depresses me. Did I ever mention that this house was in Pulp Fiction? Yeah, the den, where Ben and I were, was featured in a scene with Walkin and a Bruce Willis as a child. Same furniture and everything!

So after saying our goodbyes I headed over to mom's work to pick her up. Then we headed to Kaiser (hospital and our health coverage) because of an issue I've been having.

So today I was putting on my clothes, and I put on a pair of jeans we picked up yesterday. My mother picked me up some jeans a size smaller then what I normally wear so I could work my way down to them. I put on the jeans and didn't know they were the size...they fit!!!! I was soooo ecstatic (so was mom and Ben haha). The top was a size smaller too, GTLJIRGKJLBSJLRKGBSKJL!!!!!
The day I can fit into a size 20 is the day I scream loudly and happily. My goal pants size is 16 but I'll be happy with a 18. I have a way to go before then though, but I will reach it eventually!
So we have to return some of the stuff since it's all too big, GOOD! :D

Now I'm sitting here, doing nothing of importance. I'm getting together with somebody for the premiere, it'll be much more fun to be all fangirly with somebody else then alone! Also, I'm not flying home, I'll drive home with mom. That means I'll be staying only 8 days instead of 10. It's okay though, it's safer and my cousins will be so busy anyway. I can't wait for Sunday and for Oregon! :D

Weird Al -- with me

Nerdy goodness and it's icky and hot!

What five things do you want to happen in Deathly Hallows?

I want Harry to realize that Ginny isn't the girl for him and go with Hermione (Ron can have Luna), hehe. Since I'm trying to be realistic though, I'll just say that I hope he doesn't hook up with Ginny again...

I want Umbridge, Pettigrew, Snape, and Bellatrix to all die. Snape should die honorably, I think he's Dumbledore's man but he's horrible and I won't be sad if he goes but if he does, kill off with dignity! Umbridge should die a painful death, maybe trampled by a hippogriff or mauled by an acromantula! Pettigrew needs to honor his dept with Harry, sacrifice yourself Peter, throw yourself in front of the AK curse! Bellatrix...Neville, his gran, and Harry can all have fun with her!

I want Draco to come to Harry's side and work with the trio in finding the Horcruxes (and if my dreams came true, Harry and Draco would hook up ;p)

I want the scene with the Dursley's to be memorable. I also want Dudley to see the light and realize what a little prat he's been and apologize to Harry and try to get his life together. I hope Petunia also realizes her errors and tells Harry something of importance and maybe gives him anything of his mothers.

Lastly, I hope that Neville gets good book time in this story, he got barely anything in HBP! Maybe he'll join Harry at the final battle or train the D.A. at Hogwarts in Harry's absence! Go Neville!

Mom and I ran a few errands today, I got sandles! I never wear sandles but I hate having my feet hot in close toed shoes, so I got a pair. The brand is Propet (I have a bunch of their shoes) and they are so comfortable!

Then we went to Grandma's to load the car up with the stuff we're driving up, barely any room for the luggage and us! After that it was to Coffee Bean, the bank, and Longs to pick up various things. Now I'm home, sweating from the icky wet heat.

We also we somewhere else, earlier today. Mom waited in the car but I had a grand time!
