I feel like I'm still recouping from the whole midnight showing of Harry Potter. God, I'm old *lol*

The movie was great fun. Roommate!B and her officemate Kevin came, along with my officemate CA, even convinced [ profile] spazzula to come out with us and trip the midnight oil fantastic. I'd never done a midnight movie before, so that was quite entertaining. We didn't dress up -- dressing up is for the books. Even if Roommate!B and I did turn our graduation robes into Hogwarts robes for Prisoner of Azkaban. We're going to dress up for the books this time. Although that means that I'm going to have to decide what to dress up as. [ profile] spazzula is voting for me to do the Hermione thing, if only because I can make my hair do the big hair thing. After this movie, though, dressing up as Bellatrix would be great fun. If only I actually owned a corset *lol* Damn me for not being completely prepared for all sorts of costume thoughts.

I think work would be more interesting if they'd let me dress up like a Harry Potter character. Could totally recruit students dressed in Slytherin green, I assure you. I think it would add a certain something. And my VP would go absolutely bonkers *lol*

And so I'm sitting here, bored, watching the minutes go by. But each time I try to write something, like say, for the not!McShep kissing meme, someone needs my attention. Can't complain -- got to take a prospective student from Nagasaki on a tour yesterday, which was incredibly fun. I enjoyed her, I want her.

But speaking of writing, there's a new little ficathon over at [ profile] teyla_lorne. Little = anything goes, which is awesome, because the world needs more of both Teyla and Lorne. So all y'all should go sign up. They are pretty, and delicious, and the world needs more. You know you want to.

You know it's going to be that kind of day when your first thought when you get up is 'fuck' and the second thought is '...I really need coffee'.

Didn't get much sleep last night -- stupid thunderstorm. Well, I can't really complain because we totally need the rain. Apparently people in the northern part of the county are on water restrictions. Not that I have a lawn to worry about things like that, but it's never a happy day when you get pictures on the front page of the paper with sad looking people holding sad looking hoses and just all around looking sad. Although it is a step up from when I lived outside of DC and the headline for the Post three weeks after I moved there was 'Why are there so many murders in PG county?' Needless to say that I only stayed there five months. And have made a promise to myself never to spend another night in PG county. *shudders* I will drive an hour to stay with my parents when I have to work up there, thank you very much. In the nice, safe, slower eastern shore. Where the headlines involve 'Meet Lucy, the Chestertown Goose'. Or pictures of ducklings, goslings... basically baby animals of all sorts. Not that there aren't bad things that happen there, just much more infrequent. Which is nice coming from an area of high crime.

Oh, and they built a statue for Lucy after she died. They take their geese very seriously.

That's what this town is missing -- geese statues. Oh, and good seafood. I really really miss good seafood. Mmm, crab imperial...
