Just arrived from work to discover Rowling has finally remembered to add Lockhart's bio to Pottermore. Needless to say, I'm disappointed but, at the same time, unsurprised, while the Gilderoy muse is pouting really hard.

My baby is all grown up. *wipes tear from eye*

Sep. 21st, 2013

It looks as if my age-long problems with gdocs seem to be over. I'm halfway through a log now, and nothing bad has happened yet.

(Let's hope I didn't jinx it now by writing this. *fingers crossed*)

Sep. 17th, 2013

I've got this urge to reread The Wind in the Willows, or at least rewatch the TV show, which I absolutely loved when I was little. I've no idea where this urge came from, though...

Sep. 9th, 2013

It amuses me so much that in a few hours and all by ourselves, Alison and I have managed to make our Felix characters' flists explode... with pictures of their old teddy bears.

And no, Leah still hasn't posted any half-naked pictures of herself clinging to a giant teddy bear. Sorry, Evan. :P

Sep. 5th, 2013

I'm currently reading Diana Wynne Jones' Enchanted Glass, one of her standalone stories (in other words, one that's completely unrelated to Howl, Chrestomanci or Dalemark). Imagine my surprise when, halfway through it, we meet a boy called Rolf, who can turn into a dog!

Jul. 20th, 2013

This is what happens when I'm bored.

Gacked from [info]book_muse:

Which of my characters would you most want to be friends with, and why?

Stolen from [info]book_muse:

12) With their partner's body?

Reason #6739642753 why Joseph Mazzello is made of awesome.

And now, thanks to FTS, I can't watch this without thinking of the kiss scene from Deathly Hallows. Yes, that's how my mind works.

Apr. 3rd, 2013

So, out of my characters Cormac, Hamish and Miles eventually become professional Quidditch players, all of them Keepers. Ron was also a Keeper at Hogwarts, and I nearly made Tiago a Keeper instead of Seeker. (ETA: And now I've remembered that, back in Feinted, Filipa was a reserve Keeper.)

I clearly seem to have a Thing.

Anti-Weed N.Y. Assemblyman Steve Katz Charged With Possession.

My Jamie muse is laughing.

Mar. 15th, 2013

I'm still reading Reflections: On the Magic of Writing, a compilation of essays and public speeches Diana Wynne Jones has written throughout her career. In the book there's also an interview by Charlie Butler, which I'm currently halfway through, and this particular bit has just made me laugh: Cut. )

Jan. 31st, 2013

I absolutely LOVE Hufflepuff boys. I'm torn between wanting to pet their heads or laughing my arse off.

Jan. 28th, 2013

OMG, this is beyond cool.

A glimpse of the reconstructed missing episodes from The Reign of Terror.

I want that DVD so desperately right now...

Jan. 25th, 2013

In case you haven't heard about this yet, I recommend you check out your RP journals. IJ has been purging spam journals, but in their attempt normal accounts (which in some cases are being currently played) have also been purged. At this point, I'm not sure if they can be undeleted, or if they're permanently lost.

Jan. 7th, 2013

I was watching Perception just now, and William Moseley was in it, playing a blue-blooded egocentric womanizer with more money than sense. Needless to say, I have this huge feeling of deja vu right now.

Dec. 20th, 2012

Today's special logo on Google's main page is beyond adorable.

Dec. 7th, 2012

Snaps please?

I tried reading Fifty Shades of Gray and was extremely surprised that I was able to endure more of it before giving up than I had with Twilight. Ah well, I'm cleansing my reading palate with the Dark is Rising series, so all is good now.

Nov. 27th, 2012

I've had I Like Chopin playing non-stop inside my brain for some 24 hours now.

Thanks a lot, dad.

My favourite Portuguese comedian, Nuno Markl, just had the greatest idea ever, especially considering this weather: earmuffs that double as headphones! You can keep your ears warm while listening to your iPod!

Nov. 18th, 2012

Oh, for heaven's sake, Cormac. Stop fluttering between being an almost decent human being and the world's biggest prat. Declan People will start thinking you suffer from split personality.

Needless to say, he's taking the "Potter stinks" business very seriously indeed. Oh course, if he's like that about someone he doesn't really know that well, imagine how he would be acting if Harry was a cute girl.

Nov. 15th, 2012

Once again calling all roleplayers interested in trying out a new game to go and join us at [info]gobletmods!

The year is 1994, the Triwizard Tournament has been reinstated, and Hogwarts has two champions, which is causing some rifts amongst the students - and Rita Skeeter has just made things worse with her little green quill.

There's still plenty of slots to fill, but what we're looking forward to seeing in game right now is:
* Seventh years. We need more of these around, stat.
* Fifth year boys. The only one in game right now is Cormac McLaggen, who desperately needs the friendship of some like-minded possessors of testosterone to keep him sane.
* Beauxbatons boys. Again, we're seriously lacking on that respect. The two boys meant to dance with the Patils at the Yule Ball are especially welcome.
* Angelina Johnson, Kenneth Towler and the Weasley twins. Show some Gryffindor pride (and some Team Harry support)!
* Roger Davies. He has a BFF (Hamish Fraser), a recent ex (Amelia Higgs) and a future Yule Ball date (Fleur) in game waiting for him.
* Stebbins. Three dormies (with whom he went to a Halloween party in themed costumes) and a future date are also waiting for him.
* Adrian Pucey. His on-and-off (currently off) girlfriend is in game - plus it would be interesting to play with the fact he wasn't part of the Slytherin team the previous year. *eyes Rowling warily*
* Siblings of existing characters. More specifically, Gillian Capper, Armand Szczepanski and the yet nameless older brother of Kee Connolly.
* Muggleborns! Both OCs and canon names (when they work with canon, of course) are welcome.
Interested? Then come and join us!

Here in Portugal we don't celebrate Halloween (well, in recent years people have started to organize fancy dress Halloween parties, but they're still seen as a curiosity imported from foreign lands) but instead celebrate All Saints' Day on the 1st of November. On this day, Portuguese children have the equivalent to trick or treat, which we call "bread for God", though, obviously, they get sweets rather than bread. The only difference between bread for God and trick or treat is that the former is done during the daytime and there's no costumes.

Anyway, this is just to say that the girls have spend the day out asking for bread for God with their friends, and came back with a tummy full of sweets (I foresee that they'll be celebrating Stomachache Day tomorrow) and a bar of chocolate for each of us. And eating crisped rice chocolate while watching Karen Gillan teaching Conan O'Brien how to swear (and order chips) in Scottish Gaelic is probably the best thing ever. :P

Oct. 31st, 2012

With the arrival of the foreign schools, [info]gobletmods seems to have exploded. Awesome. I can't wait to see how things will go once the champions are announced.

By the way, Mel, Cormac thinks you should stop being such a pain and let him objectify women to his little heart's content. I never thought I'd feel like petting a guy's head for being a sexist pig, but I guess there's a first time for everything.

Also, I'm amused at the fact Hamish put his name in the Goblet out of sheer stupidity and is now facepalming and blaming Cass.

And for the enjoyment of all the Accio Goblet people on my flist, have a silly screencap. )
