Sneaking in from the Muggle job...

Okay so here are some good things about today...

1. All three of my scheduled appointments canceled today. So now I can work on paperwork and phone contacts, which I really needed to do.

2. My hpgw_ficafest story is off with my Crack Beta Squad, who have been christened "The Order of the Phonics" by pan_alchemist. It ended up being over 7000 words long. I think that it is not bad, and hopefully I will get it posted soon. (Hint Hint: If you are a member of the Order of the Phonics, or are unsure of your membership to said group, CHECK YOUR E-MAIL!!! those pesky commas aren't going to delete themselves!)

3. I got Gmail this weekend! Hee hee I am now part of a secret nerd clique! I feel so special!

4. Being saddened by the sparseness of George/Luna fic in the fandom I started one of my own, much to the delight of miz_tith aka Tith. I can only hope that I do the lovely couple justice.

5. Have been trying to convince mickawber that Harry will have a new Patronus in Book Seven and that it will be a Hungarian Horntail I do get all worked up about a good theory discussion.

6. My back and leg didn't hurt AT ALL yesterday!!!! So there you evil pinched nerve! Muahahaha!

7. Realized that when provoked, and often when not provoked, one of violet451's Little Monsters (who she has rechristened The Howler Monkeys) can reach the exact same pitch as a smoke detector going off. IMPRESSIVE!! (unless of course he is really close to the phone when he goes off, then not so impressive)

8. My Mom and Dad are coming to visit in a few weeks and will hopefully bring me free meat! Ah the joys of being a farmer's daughter! Also my dad will fix all sorts of things at my house as my husband's only real tools are very tiny screwdrivers that are used to secure motherboards, graphics cards and CPU fans. I shouldn't be that cruel, my husband has a drill as well that he last used to drill extra holes in his computer case for said CPU fans...

9. My baby sister has decided to grace me with her presence next month so that we can go to the horse races at Keeneland and so she can see where I live before she takes off on her latest round of world travels courtesy of the Peace Corps this fall.

10. It is Wednesday! Which, while not as good as Thursday and no where near as good as Friday, is still much better than Monday or Tuesday.

Don't you feel better? I know I do. Okay, I must get back to work. There are people who need helping...

Ahhh! Brilliant Tory!
Had a good chuckle over the Slytherin's tools and the smoke-detector impersonations... Kids!

Glad your hip didn't give you any problems! That must have been a relief!

Off to continue the beta process... It's getting there...

Actually you just have part one of at least three I think
as long as the plot bunny in the Sectraspecs keeps cooperating ;-)
