A quick report @ 08:01 pm
Current Mood: okay
I seem to have shed the final cold symptoms today, after a zinc tablet and a pot of peppermint tea this morning. If so, I'm lucky. Cold, flu, bronchitis, and even pneumonia seem to be sweeping the country. I can name very few people who have not been sick sometime in the past six weeks with a respiratory virus of some sort.
New note that is now attached to my printer: "That awkward moment when you realize you have no plans for where you are going in life, yet you know exactly what you are going to do in a zombie apocalypse."
Jinxster and I are reading Deathly Hallows together, or rather she has already started reading and I will soon begin re-reading. She wanted to know how far to read before she watched Part 1 of the movie (which I discovered is almost precisely two-thirds through the book). In the course of the conversation I have given both Deathly Hallows movies what I consider to be proper subtitles: The Golden Trio Goes Camping and Rocks Fall - Everybody Dies.
Ascendio is looking for suggestions for Snape-centric panels or meet-ups. My mind immediately goes to fan fiction and slash, of course, but some other ideas have been clever. For example, a panel on creative insulting. The concept of a Snape kissing booth is very popular, but I'm not interested unless they can get Alan Rickman to participate.
Sorta stayed on my schedule today, considering I had a two-hour chat with Jinx. No exercise for today, but if I feel this well tomorrow I'll get out the Wii Fit Plus. Ate 1296 calories; I need to reduce the amount of sunflower seeds I eat. I see Nutrisystem has removed them from their Recommended Groceries list.
I particularly need to get my calendar updated, both the Harry Potter one on the wall and the one in my iPad/iPhone. I have way too many pieces of paper floating around reminding me of various appointments and dates. And I have one week now until I leave for Illinois for the sale of mom's house.
Happy Birthday to Severus Snape today. Also a full moon. Also, this Friday is the 13th of the month.
Time to start getting ready for bed.
