writers block

Published June 25, 2012 by shadycatlady

I have, officially, writers block.

I know, I run a blog where I basically write about whatever I want because it is so easy going over in these neck of the woods so to say I have writers block would be an insult to real writers everywhere.

But its real, my moms all, madison you really need to write something.

And im like OH MY GOD MOM LEAVE ME ALONE *slams door and organizes my scrunchies*

okay I lied, I have no scrunchies, but she has been bugging me, and honestly I want to write shit but I honestly have nothing to talk about, so I am taking the easy way out for a while and doing the 30 day Harry Potter challenge.

Yeah basically I found this on the internet where They ask 30 harry potter related questions and I answer them here and you can learn oh so much about me and blah blah blah, I just like to talk about harry potter.

So ill place this under word vomit, and ill occasionally make real blog posts, maybe.

So this will MOST DEFINITELY have spoilers so if you dont want to know get the hell out.

Day 1: What is your favorite book in the series?

Easy. The prisoner of Azkaban.

I really am not sure what compels me to this book so much but I think it has to do with Sirius mostly.

I love that Harry found not 1, but 2 (Remus Lupin) father typer figures after assuming he had none.

Harry potter is the only thing that makes me all sappy so when harry finds out the truth about Sirius and then saves him, it makes me want to go around and kiss babies on the head, like the president of America.

Also Hermione punches Malfoy in the face, even though I like Malfoy (the feelings start in book 6), it is still one of the best moments.

Also I like that Dumbledore predicted wormtails wavering ways.

He basically tells harry, it sucks that you saved him now, but one day peter will owe you big time and youll be grateful then .

Also they save buckbeak AND Sirius all because Dumbledore is a genius and Hermione gets to go back in time.

I could go on for hours about this book……

I actually have a quote form this one on my wall.

But I’m using my laptop on the darkest screen setting because i have 7% left and I DO NOT want to get my charger. So I have to cut this up short.

Plus hip-hop squares is on. YAY………….

Its like Hollywood squares but with drunk, slurred, ebonics as the main language.

Mini Vacation

Published May 1, 2012 by shadycatlady

Yeah, I’ve been M.I.A for like a week or whatever.

But really my life has been boring and I’ve been busy doing what I do best, failing exams.

But I did get a chance to sneak in a mini vacation

I went up to my family’s cottage on saturday and sunday last weekend.

and it was magical.

I love nothing more than doing nothing. Plus I have not had a Saturday off since St. Patricks Day so I was due for a saturday off. Even if it was the one saturday every 3 months where we have to stay all late and hand count every single item in the store. I needed it.

So I wake up saturday morning and decide on whim to get a spray tan. and I looked FABULOUSLY tan. Like Jersey Shore tan without looking cheap and trashy and I was most certainly not wearing affliction or Ed Hardy.

I was wearing my capris with cats on them.

So we drive an hour and a half stuffed in my moms SUV while we all listen to my cousin name every breed of bird on the way.

I could probably get my PHD in birdology after that weekend.

Yes I am aware that that is probably not the term but i dont care enough to look it up.

So me and my best friend spent the weekend watching harry potter and drinking hott butterbeer. Which is just butter and brown sugar melted and then poured into boiling cream soda with a couple splashes of butter scotch schnapps.

I know, real specific. I think it was something like 4 tbs of brown sugar and maybe like 2-3 tbs of butter, then a 2 liter of cream soda.

mmmm delicious. You wouldve seen this if you followed me on instagram Mini_Lutman

oh and you can pour some plain cream in the cup before your dump your hot delicious beverage in there.

quite delicious. Plus it doesnt get you white girl wasted, which is ideal when you are watching your favorite movie series ever in the whole world.

But if you like getting white girl wasted I’m sure you could adjust it accordingly.

We also had a little photoshoot in water that was so cold I’m sure it was frozen.

Arent spray tans awesome!?

and then we drove around and shopped and ate and stuff it was pure bliss. Cottages are like little separate worlds where times slows down you drink cocktails and get tired at 7 p.m

I can’t wait to go back.

But starting tomorrow after 10:30 a.m I am on summer vacation.

Let’s get weird.

A doctors dream come true.

Published April 17, 2012 by shadycatlady

I alone probably support my doctors salary.

I am ALWAYS there. Shit I got insurance might as well use it while we have it.

Paper cut? Doctor. Headache? Doctor. Zits? Doctor.

It is just how my brain works. It is probably because my grandpa was the biggest hypochondriac ever.

But I know I’m not. I’m just really that prone to diseases and accidents and what not. Except I think my doctor doesn’t believe me so I stopped taking the medicine he prescribed me because I’m convinced he gave me sugar pills, and I will NOT be made a fool, so now i just get headaches all the time .

Not to mention right now I have headaches all the time and my stomach burns because I forget to take my medicine and I’ve got a HUGE boil pimple tumor behind my ear that hurts when I even think about it, and I’m greatly considering the fact the voldemort may have actually attached himself to the back of my head and I am a temporary horcrux.

But anyways back on track.

I had a doctors appointment today. For my GIANT monster foot. (Incase you missed the story of its rapid growth, click here)

 Us waiting the prognosis 

So I waited a week because I had to actually go to a foot doctor, which makes me nervous because I’ve had the same doctor since I was infant and we go way back, we really understand each other. Like when I was three said son of a bitch when I got a shot in my leg and we were still cool, he understood. So I was already all sweaty, and then I had to sit in the waiting room full of people with weird feet hanging out and wheel chairs and in grown toenails and the whole thing was un-settling to me. So after waiting 20 minutes past my appointment time I finally get to go to the room. and then there was a lot more waiting and shit and then I got some X-rays in some stylish brown paper bag slippers. And he concluded that nothing was wrong. Shocker. I’m just crazy

He said it is probably because I have super flat feet but I call bullshit on that because my feet aren’t even that flat and it is only one foot. But in his defense I just really want crutches so it could be because of flat feet, I’m just trying to blow it out of proportion to get some cool crutches.

So all he did was tape it in this weird formation which I’m not sure is going to help any, but I’ll give it a whirl

FOOT JAIL!

So as you can see my big fat foot is spilling over the tape on the top.

Fabulous.

OH and I can’t get it wet.

Showering already is one of my least favorite things to do, but now I have to create some type of science project to prevent it from getting wet in the shower.

I didn’t sign up for this shit.

Doesn’t that look like fun?

I used our generic plastic wrap called “Ruffies”. Yeah exactly like the date rape drug, aren’t budgets fun?

and then I wrapped it with a plastic kroger bag so tight that I couldnt feel my foot and figured that was perfect.

If that wasn’t fun enough, as I’m balancing half in the shower with my right leg sticking out of the shower I see a spider.

Spiders? Yeah not my deal. Not since one bit me in the lip in the second grade and made my lip grow to a crazy large size. I’m a grudge holder. So I’m freaking out, standing on one foot trying to find the best shaped shampoo bottle to squash the shit out of it with. It was a disaster. This whole foot wrapping thing is a concussion waiting to happen really.

The only good thing to come from this was I didn’t have to wear shoes for like two hours. which was fun because not wearing shoes is my favorite.

And I got to see this on the way home

A FANTASTIC dolphin seascape on the back window of this conversion van. I love dolphins. So now I dont know if I’d rather have a wolf or dolphin on my back window….

Also I got the best gift for my birthday in the mail yesterday

Harry Potter AND tiffanys. I have the best family.

Pottermore.

Published April 15, 2012 by shadycatlady

I constantly have to remind my parents how lucky they got with a child like me. While other kids are out partying and you know being social, I am cooped up in my room being happier than I have been in a long time. Why you ask?

because……

I have received my pottermore invitation by email…FINALLY.

I got it about two hours ago. Yeah I am a fresh newbie. literally.

But I would NOT rest until I got to the sorting hat chapter (Chapter 7).

But before we get to that let me just say, it was worth the wait.

The illustrations, the details everything is perfect and whimsical and has such a magic feel to it. I’ve been lost in Harry’s land for the past two hours, oblivious to anything else. It is nothing less than pure perfection.

Also J.K Rowling releases, (My Computer just learned the word ‘Rowling’), new information about characters and places! It is honestly my dream come true.

I know all about Professor Mcgonagall’s past and how the Dursleys met and give you such a new insight to the characters you didnt have before.

I know I sound like a HUGE nerd right now but I can honestly say I have never loved anything more than Harry Potter. It is honestly my light. I could talk about it for hours without getting bored.

This will become my reality.

Yep, just like inception. Pottermore is my limbo and I am choosing to stay lost in a world that is not real because it makes me happier than anything else.

Now on to the details. besides the graphics and everything the actual game play I guess you could call it is very cool. You get to zoom in and out of places and explore the world to an extent. The dueling is very fun and addictive and it is just SO interactive.

You get to go to stores and buy supplies and pick out your own pet!

I obviously chose a ginger cat because I have a strong love for gingers, and cats. So I figured it could do no wrong.

Like the choosing of the wands. You take a short quiz and the wand literally chooses you. It is so true to the book.

So I took the quiz and I got this….

Spruce with Phoenix feather! And I’m actually very happy with it.

I LOVE MY WAND.

I feel like im slowly losing readers at this point from disinterest, so if you are still with me, thank you for caring, or atleast waiting for something to cool to happen.

Well guess what some cool shit did happen, because shit got real at about 11:30….

I’ve reached chapter 7. I sat here for a minute, JUST a minute, contemplating whether or not I even wanted to go to chapter 7 yet. Was I ready? I had no idea. What I did know is that I was sweating from nervousness and if i didnt make a move fast I would have armpit stains in my good shirt.

So i chose to move on, now or never. What ever house I’m in will be fine I kept telling myself. Even though inside I knew I was a ravenclaw because I am not usually daring or brave. I am very book oriented and yet I was still nervous.

I am very sarcastic and witty, what if my meaness translated over to slytherin? What if my complete blandness and boringness led me right into hufflepuff? But I knew, I had to be.

So I take the quiz, very careful to be 100% honest within it because I knew I would never forgive myself if i put myself in the wrong house. So I answered all the questions that seemed never ending, while at the same time ending to fast.

and I click submit and waited for it to load, when finally…

I, the cat loving weirdo, was placed in Gryffindor!

I was so shocked. I have called myself a Ravenclaw for so long.

But it is time to change allegiance because I am a PROUD Gryffindor!

And if you are still with me I would like to reallly thank you because you obviously like harry potter, and/or me, and when I tried to express this excitement to my family it did not go as planned.

My dad was tipsy off of margaritas to even care and my mom, bless her soul, just really had no idea what I was talking about. She would probably think Gryffindor was a disease, she kept saying what one dont you want to be in, and im like, Slytherin mom. and she said so Gryffindor is good right? I know how can I love Harry Potter so much and my mother has no idea what it is? I have no idea but she promised to read them over the summer.

That is as far as I let myself get tonight and I cant wait to explore the other chapters tomorrow!

I urge everyone to sign up right now!!

Word Vomit Volume #2. Celebrity apprentice my way.

Published April 9, 2012 by shadycatlady

Last night we watched Celebrity Apprentice. Well I mean we watch it every sunday but last night we watched it a little late and since they decide to make the episodes 7 hours long we got done a little later than I wanted and I went to bed right away afterwards so it was still fresh in my mind while I was laying in bed.

Also side note, I hate Lisa Lampinelli, she was a HUGE BITCH to Lou and I hope she gets fired.

Anyways, I also put Harry potter and the Half Blood prince on to fall asleep to because I love it a lot. And while I was laying down almost asleep my brain conjured up this idea for Celebrity Apprentice.

Now bare with me because I thought this was a GREAT idea while I was half asleep.

They should have a celebrity apprentice where the celebrities have to play their characters. So i was thinking like they could have a Harry Potter Celebrity Apprentice (Merging together the two last things I saw before I fell asleep).

And like Harry would get fired because he was not working on the task and Harry would be all

But sir, I am the chosen one and I was just trying to see what malfoy was up to because he is very involved in the dark arts and Snape made an unbreakable vow to help him with something! I have no evidence but I know it! Ask Dumbledore!

And Malfoy would be all

Haha me and my fatha knew you wouldnt lahst one minute in here, Wait until I my fatha hears about this.

And lavender would be all

WON WON I GET TO SEE MY WON WON THANK YOU MISTER TRUMP

Yeah I dont know welcome to my brain.

Im awake and I shouldnt be.

Published March 30, 2012 by shadycatlady

Well here I am sitting in my bed, cat curled up on my feet, awake.

Hours before I have to be up.

Like AWAKE awake. Not that incoherent awake some people get where they say things that they dont really understand. Like awake to where I could probably figure out some complex math problem. And im horrible at math.

I was awake earlier but I managed to fall asleep by turning on Harry Potter and the half blood prince and Dumbledores soothing voice allowed to sleep.

But then it was over and I woke up only to have to watch full house.

Right now becky told uncle Jesse that he was having a baby. She told him an hour after he found out he got a record deal and found out he was going to on tour. AND he was excited. Yeah right. If you tell a dirty garage band dude with great hair that you’re having a baby I doubt he would instantly be excited. He would probably make you wear jean shorts and crop band tees and force you to live on a tour bus with a gaggle of dirty dudes drinkin PBR and smokin American Spirits or something.

She also told him by playing pictionary or charades whatever. How full house is that. A rousing game of pictionary with the entire family to tell your husband that youre having a baby.

“Cheese half-ink a baby”

But uncle Jesse also guessed Dancing with Cheeses and cheese halfink a hotdog.

Oh silly uncle Jesse.

They also let Michelle temporarily name it big bird.

I also was having really weird dreams. Like the cops kept showing up at places I was at with my best friend and we just knew they were after us. But we didnt care. and they showed up at work and my boss started running in the dusty desert out the back door and he just kept screaming RUN RUN RUN RUN. so I naturally thought that the nuclear power plant within my work building was going to blow up. But it turns out it was just the police. And it turns out that the police were after us because my friend didnt turn her iPad on when we were flying. But we never flew so she was all upset but I had to tell her just let it go.

Now some people, like can’t sleep ever and this type of thing is normal, like my dad. Who never sleeps.

But I can ALWAYS sleep. I never have a problem with it. It is just a gift. I hate sleeping but once im in bed its game on and the next time I open my eyes it is because my alarm is going off. Do you guys know what it is like to sit up in the middle of the night?

Yeah i found this. and this is exactly what its like.

Except I dont have insomnia. I’m just awake for no reason.

Except Tom Felton just tweeted this picture

So I’m glad I’m awake. because I LOVE Rupert Grint. Love.

I also love Tom.

My Harry Potter obsession never fails to invite itself everywhere. In every situation I can feel myself talking about Harry Potter and relating it to everything.

But right now I turned on Juno. Nothing gets you pumped up in the morning like a witty pregnant teenager!

Last time I woke up in the middle of the night I created this

So I guess I’m grateful that I didnt think super weird things again.

Unless this is super weird and I’m just to tired to notice. Because I’m finally getting tired again.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Published March 25, 2012 by shadycatlady

Well friday marked the beginning of my two week pre-birthday extravaganza.

What that means is I can now do stuff that may bother people but i get to say “Um hello its my two week pre birthday have a heart” and they’ll be all Ooooooh right, carry on then.

Yeah because thats totally how it works.

Now I ask for asinine things every single year mixed in with some not so totally asinine things, to make the things I actually want seem like its not that much money.

Like this year when I threw in this beauty.

A 31,000 dollar diamond Cartier panther ring. Because I love cats. and diamonds. Do i expect to get this? no.

But it makes this

Moderately priced tiffany’s script ring seem reasonable. I know how to play the game, I’m the coach.

But there is one asinine thing I ask for for every gift giving and non gift giving holiday. And I mean every. I never forget.

I literally want nothing more than to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. If they said we could if i shaved my head. I wouldnt even think about it, I would just do it. Hell, I’d cut off my RIGHT arm. and I’m right handed for EVERYTHING.

So for every holiday for like the past two years I look up price quotes and dates and all the activities we could possibly do there as a family and I make my own professional business offer. I put it together SUPER nicely and I ever write an introduction about how I would be delighted and Jolly if we could all just do this one frickin time.

I highlight important prices and dates so that they dont have to be searching on the page for them.

And yet I am still waiting.

So just a week ago I handed my father the seemingly bi-weekly brochure of the very reason blood courses through my veins. Harry Potter. And no I do not expect to get it just quite yet. But it is something I will never give up on.

He may never get it for me because as I was getting ready for the premier he said

Arent you a little old to be doing this stuff still

And then my jaw hit the floor and my eyes welled up with tears and I was like OH MY GOD HOW COULD YOU SAY THAT

First of all I was only 18, second of all I’m part of the harry potter generation so basically everyone who fully understands the story and grew up with it and waiting for releases and stuff IS around my age, or older!

But he has since watched all the movies except for part two. I’m putting that off because I weep like a newborn and I know there are just some things he will never let me live down. And weeping at harry potter is one of them.

My sports attempt was the other (incase you missed it click there)

But hands down I will ask for that every holiday until those magical tickets fall out of a card and I pee all over my floor out of excitement.

So maybe if we all wish REALLY hard. It will happen before I turn 57.

I appreciate your wishes.
