Re: Infinity's

lol! sorry, Flupes :)  in regard to this:

Okies.... Mwy, I have to ask what book you are referencing in your name.
Is it Harry Potter?? Which one??? Is it something important I should know about!?

it's from PoA (the movie), the scene where Snape takes over for Lupin and has them do the paper on werewolves :)

....i was wondering how long it would take someone to ask, and who it would be lol.


Walter, put the cow away, would you?!

Have a gander at the jewelry I've been making...

Re: Infinity's

I was wondering who would ask, too. I figured it was a Potter book, though. *g*

I can't wait to see the movie, but we won't get it for a while. :(

Re: Infinity's

aha. Been wondering, too.

I'm also wondering when I'm supposed to find time to go to the cinema. I want to go before the party, before I get involved in too many spoilerish conversations.

Re: Infinity's

Pretty close to that here, but it's just gotten cloud-dark. A storm seems to be in the process of passing over. The wind is crazy hot and dry.

Re: Infinity's

When it gets this hot, this late in the day, we usually have heat lightening storms. I remember one hot Summer, every night there was heat lightening all around.

Very wicked.

Re: Infinity's

We're getting something like that. Sheet lightning, rain, wind. It's so hot out. I hope no fires start.

Re: Infinity's

I can't stop sneezing. It's making me dizzy.

Re: Infinity's

I can imagine how annoying that must be!
But I prefer sneezing over a blocked nose.

Re: Infinity's

It was really windy yesterday, dust was flying around everywhere, making the sky a murky shade of ochre. I think a lot of pollen got kicked up with it.

Me, neither. I've never sneezed this much without being sick. And my eyes itch something fierce.

That is a good possibility. I guess misery loves company, eh?

Re: Infinity's

last night, my body wanted to sneeze, hiccup and burp all at the same time, and all while i wasn't quite finished swallowing a bite of my dinner.

that wasn't pleasant, and while disaster was abated, i rather lost my appetite after that.

Re: Infinity's

Oh, my, 394. It is a good thing you didn't do all those things at once. You would have imploded. Or something.

Just like going over the top bar while swinging (you turn inside out). It is something that you just don't want to do.

Re: Infinity's

*waves*

Its bloody hot here too - I slept through a big t-storm last night but it didn't seem to cool us down much.

Have to wait 'til Friday to see HP and its killing me.

Flip side is that I think I might get my new tattoo on Sat and I'm excited for that....

Re: Infinity's

I want so very badly to get my tattoo. And a few piercings.

The heat? Ugh.

Re: Infinity's

Piercings scare me but I'm really really ready for the tattoo.  So's my sister & brother in law - we're hoping to all go together - I'm to do recon this week to see if they can take us all on Sat and how they want to do my drawing - I'm not sure how it all works as last time I just picked out a design - this time I want an original...

The thought of anyone sticking a needle in me in any place makes me throw up.

yay, Calesta!
do you have one already?
I've had mine a couple of years now, and I don't regret it at all.
I found the needles more annoying than painful but that might depend on where you are getting the tattoo placed...

Re: Infinity's

Ett!!!!  *huggles*  haven't seen you in ages.  I hope you're keeping well.  Make sure you come around more often!

I have one tattoo that I got 18 years ago ~ that's why I think its time for another.  I'm very excited about my design.  I'll have to find a way to post pics once I've done it.  If we can't get our act together this weekend it will prolly be late August before we get it done.

Re: Infinity's

I'm going to check ot the tattoo place next week. The piece I want has to be drawn, too, and it's kinda big--both shoulders, down my arms and back. I hope they can do it right. :)
