I really don't like how Harry Potter don't have bonus features. That's the second best thing, apart from the movie.

I killed it. Oh noes.

I'm trying to come up with magical objects, and I'm half tempted to base them all off JKR. But, I'm holding back.

I see.

I need a new show. Criminal Minds ins boring, now that I've seen all the good episodes way too many times. I'm thinking NCIS...

Just popping on to catch up and say hi. Leaving in nine hours, and I have to pack and get stuff together, and maybe make a batch of peanut butter cookies, and write a note to my uncle (who works swing and is doing overtime, so still has at least four hours before he'll be home) before going to bed. And I'm already exhausted.

How's everybody else doing?

It feels like my eyes are going to pop out of my head. I've been searching up mythical creatures for who knows how long. I didn't find anything interesting that isn't as common as a Griffin or a Unicorn.

Now I want something sweet. But sadly there is nothing sweet in the house. Grr.

HR: Lucky it's so simple, huh?

Taylor: If you want, tomorrow I can link you to some interesting stuff. I can't tonight, because it's all on my laptop, and the wireless doesn't work up here.

Ely: You want some recipes? The one I gave HR (and she made) is really simple, and *REALLY* good.

ETA

....Okay, I guess I'm off to bed. Night, all!
