HP7

I saw it at midnight (of course) with my bf and 4 other friends. I loved the movie. It stayed mostly true to the book. I’m not one to complain about little differences. I see the movie and book as two entirely different ways of telling the story of Harry Potter. We will be seeing it again next week in Memphis with a friend.

Memphis?! Yep, Memphis! I haven’t been home since January, so I’m coming to town for Thanksgiving. So excited to see my mom, friends, and eat some lovely southern food. I’m looking at you fried okra!

What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

That describes my weekend! Derby-filled! The Championships of roller derby were this weekend. I didn’t go, as originally planned, but I had a lot of time watching from the seat of my house in my pajamas! And with some of my team on Sunday. The games were all great, but the final–the final was the best derby bout I’ve ever seen. It was insane and intense and every jam counted until the very last minute! The score was 147-146. Rocky Mountain Roller Girls of Denver, Co are the #1 roller derby team in the world!


Grats ladies, you earned it!

Watching the best teams in the nation is fucking inspiring. I can’t wait to practice this week!

THIS!

but not really. I ate a good amount of my candy, but only about 5% of it. The rest was given away to kids! For the first time in my life, I don’t live in a city where parents aren’t afraid to let their kids go to strangers houses to trick or treat. I passed out candy for the first time and  it was kinda crazy. We got about 300-400 kids! I actually ran out of candy halfway through and had to run to the store to get more. It was insane! The bf and I were eating french fries as we passed out candy and some little kid BEGGED us for a french fry. I didn’t mind giving him one, but I asked his dad first  and he wasn’t having it. The id threw a fit. It was amusing to say the least.

It’s November. I am now officially counting down the days until Harry Potter-Deathly Hallows pt 1! I’m thinking about re-reading the book before I see it. I’m going with a couple of friends and we’re dressing up. I’m surprising everyone with Gryffindor scarves!

I’m making them in the most basic stitch. If I try to get technical with it, I will never finish before opening night!
