Hurrah for Friday!

     Finished my first editing run-through of Hope's Passage today, which was a great excuse to treat myself out to Chipotle for lunch with the lovely gift card I got for my birthday. Yum!

     Been having a blast rereading the Harry Potter books. Just finished the fifth one now, and I'm proud of myself for not ripping it apart, throwing it across the room, or setting it on fire. ;) (As that Dolores Umbridge is really bad for my blood pressure.)

Emotional Status:

LOL Tims actually took Order of the Phoenix away from me when we were first reading it because I was threatening harm to the book. That was one of the few books that REALLY pissed me off.

Plenty of villains have creeped me out more, but I don't there's any that's made me more foaming-at-the-mouth livid. I think the fact that it was a library book the first time I read it is the only thing that saved it!

Tell me about it. I developed a temporary concentration disorder while I was reading all of the parts with Umbridge in them; I was like, wiggling in my seat and waiting for someone/thing to smack her down, hahah. :P

Congratulations on a successful editing session! You deserve the treat.

I desperately wanted something/body to get her! I about flew off the handle the first time I read the seventh book and she shows up again. ;P

Thanks! Feels nice to actually accomplish something this month!

She shows up again in the book seven?! As what, a teacher? (You wouldn't be spoiling anything by telling me: I got derailed at book five and never got back on track). :)

It's been two years since I read book 7, so my memory is really sketchy. I just recall Harry Potter sneaking around in the Ministry of Magic after something, and she was there, being nefarious as usual. =P

Hm, well, at least that doesn't sound *too* major.

*looks at my previous comment* "...in the book seven." <--- See? Umbridge even affects my ability to use proper English. :) Least I think that's not proper English.

Well, if you'd said 'in the seventh book' then you'd have gotten away with it. ;)
