I've been home and bed bound pretty much constantly for the past week, and if it wasn't for the fact that I came down with The Plague (TM) at the tail end of my vacation, I'd enjoy this rest more. Blah, who am I kidding. I hate enforced bed rest.
I've been picking up the slack on my LJ and my LJ friends finally, and am going to comment more - I quit HiH as the interest in HPland really has dwindled down to a vapor - I'm not even sure I'm going to buy the book at midnight anymore, maybe in the first week or something.
Ah! Yeah, that's the one bad thing about flying. It takes at least a few days to get over jet-lag and all that. Once I think I forced myself the work the very next day, and luckily I had the following day off because I was dizzy! BLAH!
You left? :( Well, that's understandable. My interest in HP is waning as well, and if it weren't for RP and my FList, I probably would have dropped HP a long time ago.
still in HiH, and really, having one of you there is like having three of me.
Have you read the OoTP film spoilers? I am NOT HAPPY.
I'm ready to send Harry off, really.
one of me does NOT equal three of you. I miss you! :D Though I'm guessing your fics-in-progress will still be on the back-burner if your HP interest has died? :(
Nope! WHAT DID THEY SAY? (Is Cho... the snitch? I had thought she might be several months ago when the promo pics came out since there was no Marietta listed in the credits or in the DA pic... but please tell me THAT isn't the spoiler!)

hate to be the bearer of bad news
no, I will try to finish my fics, because I'm still wildly invested in Cho and Cedric, because....they are CHO AND CEDRIC, OTP 4EVER, but just HP itself..bleeeeh. I'm ready to move on.
That is the spoiler.
GAH! THAT SUCKS! If there wasn't already enough Cho-hate! *SIGH* I sorta guessed it though since Katie had said in earlier interviews that Cho was bitter? And since they never really showed the CC relationship to its fullest extent in GoF, no one would really understand if she was all weepy in OoTP unless they read the books.
Hopefully you get that Saturday off.
Living in a summer tourist area, it's always amusing to hear people talk about summertime slowing down.
yeah, I've been lax with homework as well. *sigh*
I think it's because in general, people are less sick? in the spring/summer seasons than they are in the fall/winter. So less sick = less time they go to the hospital :)
JACOB JACOB JACOB JACOB JACOB YAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!
I... don't really have any feelings on where to sway you with teacher vs. student. Mostly, I just want to fangirl him because I adore him, I do. ♥
And... I read some of the comments and now I'm sort of sad about the OotP movie. :( The world is going to REALLY hate Cho and ALL Ravenclaws now. Except maybe Luna, though she's pretty weird, so even that's doubtful. GAH. *wanders off to kick things*
um... well, it also depends on April. I see Mei as Herbology teacher if Jacob's a teacher, but if she'd rather play as seventh years, that's fine with me too.
I know... I am DEPRESSED. Luna is cool though... but yeah... :P
NO HIDING FROM ME. It makes me a sad panda. :( ILU SO PLZ TO NOT BE HIDING. I promise I am not as scary!hyper as I seem! :D
P.S. Kase misses you. :(
Well. As for that... I still remain neutral, because I think both of the PBs could go either way, depending on which pictures you choose. (They're both much older than 17/18 IRL, as I remember it, but they don't necessarily LOOK it.)
Although... wasn't Randie planning to take on Herbology? So perhaps if you want a teacher, you might want to try another subject?
Also, you'd both have to be wary of houses if you go for 7ths. In some cases, those are nearly full. Like, there's only 2 Gryff boy spots left (Well, only one because of Sly... *koff*) And only 2 Puff girl spots (only one if Ivan decides to come back and bring Tata again...) Though I think there's plenty of room left in Claw and Slytherin... though I don't think I can picture Mei OR Jacob as a Snake. XD
... *rambles on, geeks out, possibly luffs RP too much*
I KNOW. It's very depressing. :( The only people who really take to Luna are Claw-shaped people. She's generally too weird for others. She can't carry the whole house on her back if they're going to go and ruin Cho entirely like this. WTF, Laaaaaame. *ANGRYCLAWFACE*
Jacob would like Kase to come to WW but he knows that Lala has a bunch of characters already in her globe that Kase won't fit in WW.
Yup, Mei -I think- is late 20s, and Jacob is early 30s... the only thing is Jacob doesn't have many young 20s pics. I think because of Entourage, he has more pics nowadays, but that is late 20s when he started the show.
And Jacob wouldn't be Herbology (Mei would, if anything). Jacob would be Arithmancy or Astronomy.
But we were thinking 7th yr Claws anyways.
Well, in HP, the Claws were the most "mysterious" and under-represented house anyways (with one extreme being Cho and the other being Luna) but yes, THIS SUX! :P I doubt they will show Michael Corner dating Ginny...
I know. It's so sad. :( I have all these characters who are being forced into early retirement. BOO.
Yeah... you guys picked difficult PBs for them. :P But I still think Adrien, even NOW, doesn't always look as old as he really is.
Well, that's cool... but I'd still check with Randie before claiming Herbology. ;)
And... Astronomy WAS going to be Manny... but... :-/ *sniffles*
Claws? Hmm... Somehow, I don't quite picture either of them as Claws. Well, I think my brain sees Jacob as a Clawish Puff. But Mei always seemed straight Puff to me. (Yes, I am that big a dork. I mentally sorted everyone at BX.) Then again, they are y'all's characters, so what does my opinion matter? XD
... Also, I'd be fretting about having too many 7th years in my head if I were you guys, but perhaps that's just me. (It's hard enough having Deir and Daph same year. GAH, my brain. And then... well, Beau and Phil are likely to KILL ME.)
*rambles really a lot wheeeeeee*
*nods* Yeah, they are. And I like them that way. We can't be pigeon-holed as easily as the other houses. :D
But man, the movies are going to make us all seem like cowardly and/or bizarre nerds. *SIGH* They're so not going to include Michael. Or Terry. OR... like, any other Claws EVER, apparently. Just Cho and Luna. WTF?!?!? >:[
We could still hang around BX... but it's um... sorta stalled?
hahaha... well... I think April said "Mei" called out to her when she was searching PBs, and me? Well, I could always change PBs for Jacob... but I like Adrien.
I doubt April wants another prof ;) besides I don't think I really want THREE of them.
hahaha... I was debating Claw or Puff for Jacob as I can't see him as a Snake or Lion, but if he's Claw, I think April would want Mei to be too. And I don't think having him and Ami in my brain as 7th years will be too bad, especially if he's 7th yr Claw not Puff. He'd be forced to be Colton's roommate (hahahahahaha). And April said Mei's smart... so smart = Claw ;D
I wish Nigel - the whole made-up character - was the snitch! :P
I MISS YOU TOO! ♥♥♥! AND YES YOU SHOULD DO THE TERRY/MANDY STUFFS!
