Well, I got back yesterday, earlier than I would have liked because my dad was worried about the weather. The break was all right. I didn't really get a chance to veg out, though, which I would have liked. I saw the Harry Potter movie on Friday, which was freaking awesome.

Classes were actually canceled today. It wasn't even that bad earlier. Now we've got falling snow and wind. I think there are a couple of inches on the ground all ready. Yay for snow (and being inside)! I've felt like utter crap for the last few days; depression, colds, etc. It's not going so well for me right now. I was kind of glad to have today to sort of veg out and stuff. Blah, I'm feeling so down! Well, anyway, there's only 12 days (if that) until I get to go home again, so we'll see how things go.

Well, I finished the new Harry Potter book this afternoon. Keep in mind that my mother read it first so I got it on Tuesday. May I just say, wow. I don’t wanna spoil too much for those of you who have yet to read it, but it was very good. I always forget what an excellent writer she is. I mean, these kids are definitely 16 (if that tells you anything). Nothing that I wasn’t expecting happened, too, if that tells you anything. Well, wait, one thing did, but it was nothing too important, since apparently my mom and my sister were expecting it. Since book 2 according to my mom. I mean, I considered it, but brushed it to the back of my head. There were three things that came up within the course of the story that I figured out before we got the full explanation, too. Actually, one hasn’t been explained, and my brother cheated and found someone online who had figured it out. I had it figured by the end of the second to last chapter. I did figure out what the main conflict was, as well as something having to do with the strange behavior of a character introduced in book 5. I gave myself 5 points for everything I saw coming! Hope I didn’t spoil anything... I was considering putting a more detailed rant in a cut, but, well, I think you all know what I think and those of you who have read it know what I'm referring to. Including the things I saw coming from book 2, but probably not the one I didn't. Since apparently I'm the only person who thinks it's weird. And it has nothing to do with the really painfully obvious one, either. Okay, I'm done now. I think I made some little bit of sense.

Wow. I have stories tonight. First off, let's start with the lovely adventure I had when I was pet sitting. You'll need to know the main cast in this. It includes myself, Bart the dog, and Boo and Cala the cats. I get in the door this evening and Bart looked like he really wanted me to let him out in the backyard. So, I closed the door (so I thought, it must have been open a crack), let him do his business and came back in. I then went to where their food dishes were. The ones for the cats are on a shelf higher than Bart's (this is important later). I get over there and fill the ones for the cats, and Cala immediately starts eating out of Boo's dish, which she apparently likes to do. I go down to Bart's only to find that he's managed to get a ton of his dry dog food into his water. It looked and smelled disgusting. I had to figure out how to clean this up. While I was trying to drain the water out (and not hit Cala with my elbow), I wondered why I hadn't seen Boo. I thought I had heard him mewing, but he was no where in sight.

It was at this point that I heard the storm door close. After saying a choice word, I raced outside, making sure the door was shut this time, and began looking for Boo. I could hear him mewing, but I couldn't see him. I finally found him under their car. He would not let me get to him. After probably 20 minutes of a battle of wills, I realized the only way I would ever get him was if I got him far enough out from under the car that I could grab him. Eventually, he left, but went under a bush which made it even harder to get him. The worst part was he was on the edge of a retaining wall and I was afraid he was going to leap down into the neighbor's backyard. Fortunately, he seem interested in the bush and followed it around to face the street. He was slowly making his way toward where I was standing, and I was creeping forward. As he inched along, eating the grass, which was gross but I figured getting him inside was most important at this point, he ended up standing directly beneath me. I reached down, grabbed him, and went back inside, scolding him all the way. Then there was still the case of Bart's water dish. I finally dumped it in the trash and refilled the water at the sink, since I was holding the dish. Normally, I put it in a jug and bring it over. As I was about to put it back in Bart's spot, Cala decided that it would be a good time to leap up to her shelf. Yeah. Water everywhere. So not only did I have to refill his dish, I had to clean up the water on the floor! Lots of fun...

Another reason this was a mess goes with my next story, also why I'm writing this at 1 am. Me, Lindsey, and Rachel went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tonight. I was supposed to meet them at 7:30, but I got there at seven and Boo alone took me half an hour. Anyway, we hung out for a while and stuff. On to the movie! It was so funny. I loved it! It followed the book as well as I can remember, too. The ending was really weird, but over all very clever and funny movie. I suggest it. Heh, the Oompa Loompas are great. As is Johnny Depp. But that's no surprise. The kids were all really good in their roles, as well. And one of the grandmother's is hilarious. "I love grapes!" We then had to go out to Wal Mart and buy chocolate, which I am in the process of eating. Yum...

My mom has finished Harry Potter six. I start reading it tomorrow! Yay! I'm kind of nervous, but she said that nothing happened that she didn't expect, which made me feel better. She also told me to have set times to read, if that says anything about page turning ability. I also found out that the Goblet of Fire movie comes out in November.

One last amusing story from Saturday night. I was watching Inuyasha, big surprise. There was a character that I knew was coming up named Bankotsu and I really wanted to hear how his dub voice sounds. The guy who does him, Matt Hill, has done characters like Kira on Gundam Seed and Ed on Ed Edd n Eddy, so I didn't know what to expect. I pretty much know what he can do, so I figured out a certain voice he could do that would be great, even though I know very little about Bankotsu. Anyway, he had about two lines at the end of the episode and it was exactly how I wanted him to do it! I was really excited. In my happiness, I said "Bankotsu!" a la Ed because I'm prone to talking like him. Then I realized that the same guy does both of their voices. So I started laughing hysterically and my mom wondered what I was doing.

Okay, that's it. One overly interesting day plus a bonus story! Don'tcha love my incredibly long entries?

Well, today was fun, I guess. We had to sing Vivaldi's "Gloria" with the South Dakota Symphony tonight and my parents came up to see it. We had supper at Fuddruckers, which was good as always. It was kind of funny, cause "Best Years of Our Lives" came on the radio and I couldn't stop laughing. candy__chan will understand that reference. Then we went to Best Buy cause we still had like an hour and I FINALLY got the next Inuyasha DVD. I HAVE EPISODE 78 NOW!!! WOOO!!! True, I did all ready see it, but it was like 3 in the morning, and I have a few subtitled clips, but this is still nice ^^. I'll probably watch it... soonish. Heh, even though I missed it for Elsa's stupid wedding and they stopped showing new ones right after it until January (of which I missed all, lol), I am still victorious!!!

The performance went well. My parents said the first half was really good, too, as we were only in the second. Then we got ice cream. Yum. I mean, I'm still having problems, but that doesn't mean I can't have a good time! Christie and I even hung out last night. Yeah. Shocking. We watched the first half of Harry Potter, hee hee.

Okay, if you wanna stop reading now, feel free, cause I'm gonna start ranting about the world now. Most specifically, what the crack monkey is wrong with it. I mean, people are dying everywhere!!! Okay, I know this is technically normal, but all of these murders are driving me crazy! People are getting killed at church services and funerals! FUNERALS! And then people are shooting judges and/or their families! I just don't understand it. This is just a terrible, terrible time in world history. And there's nothing we can do. Well, there was one thing, but that ended on November 2nd. Grrr. *sigh* Oh well, at least I have brownies...
