26 – What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you've had to research for a fic?
I don't really do a lot of research outside of rewatching certain episodes of the show I'm writing for or checking out various websites devoted to the timelne and characters of the fandom.

I have looked up the details of an occasional sex act though just to make sure it's feasible. Don't really consider that odd though.

27 – Where is your favorite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?

Favorite place to write is at my computer (either at home or at work, especially if it's a temp job where I'm not expected to do much besides answer the phone.)

28 – Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your fic?

I've done several collaborations with writers, most notably: [livejournal.com profile] idioticonion, [livejournal.com profile] secondmezzanine, and [livejournal.com profile] magpieinthesky. I've also had artists inspire my work, most notably [livejournal.com profile] rua1412.

If you like lame, you should meet me for a drink tonight after I have dinner with my mom and pretend to go to bed. -Lem, Better Off Ted

Thing A Day 1: I want to thank [livejournal.com profile] sweet_lyri, [livejournal.com profile] niki1988, [livejournal.com profile] velvetwhip, [livejournal.com profile] aaronlisa, [livejournal.com profile] novemberrain007, and [livejournal.com profile] spike7451 for the chocolate userheads. It was very sweet of you. :P

Thing A Day 2: Meme )

Thing a Day 3: Saw my friend, Sabrina, and her newborn, Anthony, today. We had a really nice time hanging out together. Oxygen was running a marathon of America's Next Top Model's Cycle 10 so we half-watched a few episodes while we chatted and ate the cheesecake sample I picked up. Anthony did very little fussing and one of the few times he did, I managed to calm him down! WOO!

Anthony and his proud not-related-by-blood Auntie )

Thing a Day 4: There's a man from the State coming to the Pauquette Center tomorrow to critique, and hopefully credential, our day treatment program.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous.

Thing a Day 5: Harry Potter tomorrow night!! WOO!!

Missed yesterday so we're playing catch-up today.

Day Twenty: Favorite female antagonist )
Day Twenty-One: Favorite female character screwed over by canon )
The Rest )

I saw HP7-Part 1 on Friday and I thoroughly enjoyed it. What's more Nick ended up coming with us (see: Kit and I).

I know it may not seem like much of a surprise for my boyfriend to join me and his best friend at the movies. But since it's Harry Potter and he tends to list that as one of his least favorite topics, it was definitely an extra special treat.

He also helped me out with the big stack of dishes that had accumulated in the sink over the weekend. So that was a win. :)

Day Eighteen: Favorite non-warrior female character )
The Rest )

I really wish I was joining the masses that are heading out to see the midnight showing of Harry Potter, but Kit and I decided to wait and instead will be seeing the latest showing of it on Friday night since taking off of work is a bit difficult for both of us (him because he works for his dad, and me because I don't like not getting paid and temp employment doesn't provide vacation time.)

But enough about that, I need to go get myself some coffee and hit the road. Power Packer is calling my name. *sigh*

Later gators.

It's come down to the last day I post this meme. I have to say it was fun and I'll probably find a new one to do sometime in the future.

Day 30 - Whatever tickles your fancy

This is a poem I wrote during my time at Plano Hogwarts in an attempt to stir up some house spirit among my fellow Slytherins.

Silver and green, Silver and green.
To others, just colors
But to us, they do mean:

That we greet our friends with a Serpentine grin
And we have the snake showing us how to how win.
And I promise my friends, what you’ll all find within
Is the strength of the house that we call Slytherin.


****

In other news, I started temping for Power Packer again. I still laugh at the name and I laugh (to myself) every time I come across something that just sounds wrong/silly. One example (from doing part inventory this inventory) came from a reason why a product was bad. The reason was: Bad Ball Seat.

I don't know what that would be imply, and it's not quite as classic as Orifice Fitting. But it's a start.

*g*

****

In more serious news, my interview for Voc. Rehab is on Friday! I remember thinking how painful a wait it would be when I first found out about it, but it's just around the corner.

Future profession here I come!

26. What aspect of the books has been best translated to film?

I would definitely have to say Quidditch.

CGI and other visual effects technologies have really come far over the years and the team behind the films has really done the magic and excitement of this game justice.

I'm still mad at them for not showing us Ron's shining moment in the 5th film.

27. What aspect of the books has been most poorly translated to film?

If I were to just pick one, I'd say the house elves. They had a role in the books since the second one (in some way, shape, or form), but the films have almost removed them completely.

Since I've read the series, I know why JKR asked them to keep Kreacher in the fifth film, but after I watched it, I felt like they didn't give him the nod he deserved. It almost felt moot to have him appear on the stairs once or twice, grumble and grouch a little, and disappear.

28. Hogwarts subject you would most like to take

I would definitely want to take Divination most. Sure, Professor Trelawney is completely whacky, but I have a deep fascination for the subject and I could see myself being the teacher's pet. Runner's Up are: Potions and Defense Against The Dark Arts.

25. Song that reminds you of HP

I believe it's called cheating when a 30 day meme has to repeat a task (this was also Day 7's)...but just to indulge as I like songs...how 'bout this one:

http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=789244295

It's to "Numb" by Linkin Park and it explores the relationship between Draco and his father. Honestly, I think the video is brilliant.

19. A favorite fanart

Harry and Draco snuggles - No nudity below the belt but view with discretion )

20. A favorite quote

"Not my daughter, you bitch!" - Molly Weasley, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

"To the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure." - Albus Dumbledore

21. How has the HP fandom connected you to other fandoms, interests, or people?

I can't really say that it has. A lot of my HP friends were into Lost, but I never explored that show due to my complete lack of interest in it. And besides, I was into BtVS/AtS long before I was ever involved in HP.

22. Your favorite villain

Bellatrix Lestrange.

She's unstable, insane, cruel, and the only woman who's really in the Dark Lord's inner circle. (I see Alecto as being more of a minion then a right hand lady like Bellatrix.)

The internet is being wonky at my house so I'm updating from the library. *sigh* It looks like its a Charter problem though because my computer tells me its connected and the modem also indicates connection to the web. I hope it gets fixed soon!

In the mean time, here's Day 17 and 18.

17. Your favorite celebs from the movies or fandom

Alan Rickman, Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Felton, and Jason Isaacs

18. If you could change one thing about canon, what would it be?

I wouldn't have killed off Fred Weasley. That was just cruel and unnecessary.
