I’m re-reading the series, and I came across something that confuses me: Thestrals.

You can only see then if you have seen death. Didn’t Harry see is parents die? Shouldn’t he have been able to see them the whole time? I read a wiki article that said he couldn’t see them when he was leaving Hogwarts after Cedric died because he hadn’t dealt with the death yet, which I can understand. It takes more than a week to process something like that. I remember still being upset about it when the 5th book came out, and I didn't even like Cedric Diggory.

I remember this part bothering me when I read the books the first and second times through, but now I have people to ask about this. So,why doesn’t Harry see the Thestrals through-out the whole series, but only once the 5th book begins?

I haz purple hair...

So, since I'm like, an old person now (23), I figured that I could dye my own hair. And at this moment, I'm sitting in my room wearing a winter hat as proof that I cannot do such a thing.

I think I left the dye in too long, but Video Game Boy doesn't think it's that purple and his girlfriend likes it. VBG actually said "Oh it like REALLY REALLY deep auburn." and I was like, "Or purple." Then we continued to play mini golf.

Yesterday after I purple-fied myself, and then watched like 5 hours of Sober House on VH1 I decided to venture outside of my apartment, and go for a walk. I have a Gryffindor winter hat to hide my ridiculous hair from the children. I played on the swings for a while, until I felt too creepy being the old person on the swings at that park, so I call VBG and his GF and we ended up going mini golfing and buying ice cream. (we also ate the ice cream)

I love VBG and his GF. A lot of our friends don't really like the GF, but she's cool. She accepts the awkward best friend-y relationship VBG and I have and just laughs when he says stuff like: "Deanna, lets get in your car i'm cold." and doesn't even look at her.

OH that reminds me!! VBG and the GF are moving down the street from the apartment!! So they'll be here for the summer!!! I'm so excited.

AND STF starts on June 8th. I know I won't be making all the shows this year. But I'm SOOOO going to that one. I miss them. It's weird how you can miss people you aren't really friends with, but kind of are. I mean I talk to my HS English Teacher and two of the other cast memebers whom I don't have a nickname for in my blog yet, but I'll think of one, all the time on twitter and stuff, but it's not the same as sitting in that seat and listening to them sing about potatoes and carrots. (I love them)

Today is awesome becasue it's opening day for the Red Sox :)

April First = Weasley Twins


Because I'm hard core, and awesome, I don't celebrate April Fool's day the way "normal" people do. To me April Fool's day is Fred and George Weasley birthday. Today, Fred and George would be 32, if they were real, and if Fred was alive.

I started a Tumblr about a week ago, (http://www.misuseofairqotues.tumblr.com/) and today I'm uberspaming with Weasley-ness. It's been fun to watch the Harry Potter fans that I'm following uberspam me back. These books, this series has touched so many lives, so many people aren't the same as they were before they opened that first book.

Is there another book series where the birthdays of fictional characters are celebrated? I mean, I can only imagine what Tumblr will look like on July 31st. That should be a fun day, but I hate Harry, so probs wouldn't be participating in that one :p.

It's just amazing to see the Fandom in action, and even doing something like having an internet birthday celebration, I'm glad that I'm a part of it.

Happy Birthday George, RIP Fred

do I even have to tell you why today is awesome :)
