I've began reading Robert Galbraith's The Cuckoo's Calling. I'm sure everybody in my flist will know why...

I had the most bizarre dream, revolving around a Harry Potter/St Trinian's crossover. As in, St Trinian's as a wizarding school, with the posh totties doing glamour charms and Leah Polly using magical computers (well, you don't expect a dream to be accurate, do you?). Oh, and Miss Fritton having an affair with Lucius Malfoy.

My brain scares me sometimes.

On a different note, I'm officially a Pottermore potion-making addict. Now that I've found a way to avoid the potions glitch, I can't stop making them.

I've discovered this little site, and have been having some fun trying to figure out what the wands of my Purgatory characters (since I hadn't given it a thought until now) are made of. The results:

* Cal: Hawthorn with Unicorn Hair
* Declan: Alder with Dragon Heartstring
* Leah: Maple with Unicorn Hair

As for myself, my wand would have been made of aspen with unicorn hair. Unicorn hair seems to be a recurring theme here, doesn't it? With a notable exception, which I find unsurprising - I always figured Declan was the dragon heartstring type.

Oh, and I find it highly amusing that the keywords for Cal's wand are "chastity" (ha!), "love charms", "young beauty", "female sexuality" and "desire". :P Declan's are "strength", "courage", "family tradition", "keeper of house", "noble warrior" and "active defender", and Leah's are "old age", "agility in speech", "eloquence", "free from strong passions" (*snorts*) and "banishing evil spirits".

Alas, I didn't take note of mine, but I have a feeling "dreamweaving" might have been one of them. XD

Reading Order of the Phoenix now. I've reached the Gryffindor-Hufflepuff match in chapter 26, and I have a very angry Irishman shouting inside my brain now - namely at this part:

It was hard to say what the worst thing was: Harry thought it was a close-run contest between Ron’s fourteenth failed save, Sloper missing the Bludger but hitting Angelina in the mouth with his bat, and Kirke shrieking and falling backward off his broom as Zacharias Smith zoomed at him carrying the Quaffle.

So yeah. Andrew? Declan says sorry mate, but YOU SUCK.
