I can see Russia from here...

I just spent 2 weeks in Alaska on a Girl Scout trip, so forgive the lack of posts for the past many days.  I apologize greatly.  I saw amazing things, wildlife like moose (meese? Goose plural is geese, so moose plural is meese), bears, caribou, ptarmigans, whales, and puffins.  And mountains.  Crazy amazing mountains.  I could just sit and stare at those mountains for hours on end.  I was disappointed that we didn't get to go hiking, so I already promised myself I'm going back someday.

Awesome moments include:

  • Running down the hallway at the hotel in Anchorage to stare at gorgeous guys in the hot tub.
  • An intense game of Egyptian Rat-Screw at a restaurant that ends in two spilled Diet Cokes.
  • Singing "Edge of Glory" on a public tour bus, shortly followed by "Don't Stop Believing".
  • Watching Finding Nemo and quoting it for the rest of the trip.
  • The discovery that one of the other girls knew who Danny B was.
  • Singing "Love Story" on a fishing boat, and seeing whales right in the middle so it went something like..."He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said WHALES!!!"
  • Seeing a batmobile parked on the side of the highway
  • My t-shirt from Denali National Park:
  • Getting a free dinosaur rubber ducky at a flea market
  • Touring an underground abandoned WWII bunker
  • Offering a little girl a balloon animal I'd gotten - and getting rejected
  • Stealing about 30 total blankets from Delta Airlines
  • These t-shirts found in the airport in Las Vegas

It's all over

Forgive me if this post is a bit damp, but I'm sobbing uncontrollably.  Like Hagrid when he found out that Buckbeak would be executed...

I just can't believe it's all over.  We've all grown up with Harry Potter, and the grand finale is tonight.  The end of it all.  Yep, I'll be the Leaky Cauldron, bawling during the credits.  And blowing my nose on my handkerchief embroidered with the Hogwarts logo (I wish).

I do, however, have plenty of HP accessories, including, but not limited to:

  • Dark Mark lollipop
  • Stickers
  • Wand
  • Authentic D.A. t-shirt
  • Cloak + hat
  • HP themed fingernails

P.S. No, of course I don't have HP themed underwear, that would be preposterous.

Updates and Damage Control

Yes, I am aware my dear lovely brother was here.  Luckily, I happened to sign up for a little thing in the sidebar, which, as the title tells you, gives me an annoying email whenever something gets posted.  Seems like a good idea now, so that I can know when "certain people" decide to go nosing around my stuff.  No worries, though, the other day I hired a ninja who may or may not be in his room tonight with a katana.  Don't tell him.

I'm also mad at him because we both ordered random TeeFury shirts, and he claimed the Firefly one while I'm stuck with some random thing with a scantily clothed robot woman on the front.  Arrrghhh.

I was away on vacation last week, and my brother didn't get to come because he sucks.  Just kidding, he went to a juggling festival instead and I'm jealous.  I spent a lovely week boating and swimming and fishing and cleaning fish (ick).  I won't go into details on that because I'm sure there are some vegetarians and things who may shoot me in the face.  I respect you, don't murder me please.  Mutual respect?

Anyways, I don't have much to say, considering I've spent the last week in The Middle Of Nowhere, NY.  I could go into details about fish and playing with cousins and how there are more fields up there than buildings and more Amish buggies than cars (okay, exaggeration.  There are some cars.  But still).

I think the best part of yesterday (the 6-hour car ride home) was when a guy told me I'm awesome and meant it(!)
