I miss him terribly!

Oh, I'm so sad Harry Potter is finished. Weep weep weep..... I finished Monday morning, dragged myself to work after a mere 3 hours of sleep, endured an awful lack-o'-sleep headache (I sure am not as young as I used to be), all while mourning the fact that I'll never get to look forward to another of Harry's adventures in print. Thank goodness JK *might* write that encyclopedia!


Just a few more hours....

Our library's copies of HP7 are being delivered to the branch today. Each copy will be under lock and key and we're all under the strictest of oaths to not open those darn covers, even just for a peek. It's like I could lose my job strict. It's absolute torture of the worst kind since I'm really the only one here that even cares what the heck happens to dear Harry and Co. So now I have to sit here all day and agonize over the fact that there is a brand new copy of that darn book just a few feet away and I can't lay my hands on it!!!!! AAARRRGHHH!

Ok, I will not lose my job over this..... I will not lose my job over this..... I will not lose my job over this!


Baker's Edge brownie pan

This is the darn coolest thing ever!!!! For those of us who *love love love* brownie corners and edges, this is a gift from the invention gods! I'm ordering 2, one for me and one for a certain sibling whose birthday is quickly approaching. Ya gotta love foodie ingenuity! Available at fredflare.com (never been to this site before but I may also be picking up one of these, just cuz it's so dang cute).


Birthday blues

I must be getting older this week cuz I've been feeling rather crotchety. Just a general sort of malaise that's been manifesting itself in mild snippiness and getting annoyed rather easily. I'm not quite as bad as this....

....but close. I really should check my horoscope to see if Mercury's going to be burning my house down while in retrograde anytime soon.

Well, at least I'll be able to mind-meld with my other favorite sorcerer this weekend.


Industrial chocolate chip cookies

For some reason, my favorite chocolate chip cookies are those ones you can only get at hotels while at a conference or training or something. For lack of a better term, I'll call them "industrial" since they always seem to be the same cookies no matter what hotel you're at. Big, chewy, no nuts, decent chocolate, not overly sweet, synthetic vanilla equals yummy. It must be the type of lard they put in there. Sheesh, was that random or what?
