Avoiding all the things I should be doing...  
Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

However, I have done a few things I needed to do. I called both Barnes and Nobles and Borders stores to see if they would put out Witching Hour fliers and bookmarks. Barnes and Noble won't - they suck, throw rocks at them. Borders will, yay! Also ordered copies of the fliers made at Kinkos and found out that copies cost more than I expected. The things I do for this conference. *plans to make praetorianguard and luminousmarble buy me lunch or something* ;)

I also got my nails done - a very pretty pinkish purple color with clear sparkly polish over it. Of course, I managed to ruin one of my nails moments after I walked out of the salon - reached into my purse to get my wallet to pay for my iced tea. Typical. -.-

I have also discovered your love of salads, taradiane. Granted, I'm mostly eating the chicken, but a bit of lettuce and other veggies is making me happy. Not to mention that if I buy a salad, it lasts for at least 3 meals and I still end up throwing out most of the lettuce.

Tomorrow I need to do a bunch of laundry and begin packing! I can't believe it's finally almost here! I can't wait to see everyone and get HBP!

Speaking of which, I'm almost done with my re-read of OotP. Still hate Umbridge like woah. *STABBITY*

I feel: sleepysleepy

We have matching icons. :) If I had thought of it earlier (or known you earlier!), I'd have offered to put out some WH fliers at this doll convention I'm at. It's in Boston proper so, you know, Salem not too far away. Don't think the B&N I'm going to next Friday would be accomodating but then again, I didn't ask.

Heee, GMTA!

Dude, from what I've heard all the B&Ns are not letting us put anything out. Bah on them.

It just goes with the rest of my Tonks-obsessive icons. (I keep telling people with my luck she'll either die or turn evil in HBP and I'll never be able to love her again). :)

Feh re: B&N. That's ridiculous but it's too late and I'm too cranky to rant because I've had to do that about 100 other things today (it's been a long day and it's only the first day of the next week which is going to be really really insane. And the convention I'm helping to run doesn't actually start until Tuesday.)

Barnes and Nobles is on my personal boycott list. They won't open a store in the town I live in because we aren't smart enough for them. I figure this means I'm not smart enough to go into any of their stores. Boo, B and N.

.... you aren't smart enough for them?? Exactly how do they determine that?! They suck.

They picked out the worst location to consider putting a store and then checked on the education level of the population within a ten mile radius of that location. They determined it wasn't high enough and then that got into the newspaper. Now, the other side of town is filled with million dollar homes and I'm guessing those people don't have an education that ends at 8th grade but they wanted to build in a cheap place.

No, I'm not petty at all. :)

I work at a B&N and unfortunately it's not up to the individual stores on whether they can hand stuff out or not. It is their main headquarters. They don't allow soliciting of any kind - it's printed in huge letters in their employee handbook and everything, although I do know that a store on the east coast is going to allow some FA people to hand out stuff regarding the FA scholarships. I'm thinking they're simply not letting their hq know and are hoping no one from hq shows up.

Yeah, I know it's corporate policy - doesn't stop it from being annoying, though.

I liked them with cottage cheese and french dressing. Oh, and lots of croutons. My mother said it looked absolutely vile when it was all mixed up, but damn it was good. I wasn't allowed chicken at that point, so I used the cottage cheese as a protein source.

I think I'm going to have to agree with your mother - mostly due to the fact that I don't like any sort of sweet salad dressing. Ick.

So you won't be around for Spellbound? :(
Vicki: Hermione by Lidihermorrine on July 11th, 2005 04:28 am (UTC)
No - I'll be in Houston. I've been planning this trip for a loooong time, way before I'd even heard of Spellbound, unfortunately.
