I just bought a hamburger phone on eBay.

Greatest purchase of 2007. It is replacing the one I had when I was little, who's top sits in my closet since the rest got smashed by my mom's station wagon when I was eleven.

Thank you Juno for reminding of how fun a food shaped phone can be.

Dunder- Mifflin, this is Pam...

Ever had one of those moments when you realize that your current life situation is oddly reminiscent of a tv show character's??

Yeah, totally just had one of those moments. I am Pam, and the world I'm living in is the Office...bad? good? I have no idea.

Damn, It feels shitty to be an "adult"

That's right folks, my childhood is over

Actually, its been over since the stroke of midnight, July 21st 2007, but I was reading that night and felt no desire to post on LJ.

Ten years of reading and waiting and reading and waiting, as J.K. Rowling crafted seven wonderful books for, as I feel, my express literary pleasure are now over, and while there are still two movies to be made and viewed there will never be another "Harry Potter and the..." to buy at midnight.

Damn. I cried at 1:30 AM when I finished the book. (On Sunday, not Saturday. I can't read that fast) I cried like a baby, which is sad to admit, but very true. Damn, it felt shitty to close that final installment and know that, if J.K. sticks to her word, there is nothing more to know about Harry, Ron, Hermione and the rest of the gang.

Damn...I guess I'll be sad until I have a day off from work and start re-reading the whole series over again. Just try to forget I know how they all end up.

A Venti Decaf Non-Fat Weasley?

My Harry Potter Spoiler of Doom is:
Ron Weasley becomes a barista at Starbucks by using Mooncalf dung
Get your Harry Potter Spoiler of Doom
