I Got Tagged...

By D! At least, I assumed I was the only Amanda she knows, and that she tagged me :ob

8 Random Facts Meme
The rules:
1. Let others know who tagged you.
2. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
3. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.
4. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them they have been tagged.

Okay...random facts about me...

1. I always wear a thumb ring, my birthstone ring, and usually my wedding rings (I'm retaining water so bad, that the bands cut into my finger...I had to take them off, so my finger could heal up). The only time I ever take them off is when I swim because the chlorine affects the silver in my thumb and birthstone rings.

2. When I'm feeling particularly depressed, I listen to the Wallflowers, Bringing Down the Horse. It's a habit I started for some unknown reason, when I was frequently depressed in high school, that I never got out of. I don't feel the need to listen to it very often anymore, but it used to be a common occurrence.

3. When I'm at home, I make my chili dogs like open-faced sandwiches. Two pieces of bread, mayonnaise, hot dogs cut in half and laid flat across the bread, chili over all, then sprinkled with cheese. I used to eat onions on them as well, because I loved onions...but now raw onion of any sort seems to make me really really sick..

4. My favorite cookie is a toss up between two cookies that my aunt, Paula, makes for Christmas. One of them is a Mint Ravioli: little cookie raviolis made with Andes mints wrapped in a cookie dough and shaped like a ravioli. The other is two cookies with peanut butter smeared between them, like a cookie sandwich, and then half dipped in chocolate. MMmmmmm....

5. I was born in a Pepto Bismol colored hospital, St. Francis, on December 2nd, at 7:28pm. I was supposed to be popped out in November, but I was late.

6. My mom is AB negative blood type and my dad has O positive. I'm the first child born, and I have B positive. My sister is the second child born, and she has A positive.

7. My screen name starting out used to be with AOL, and was SpeiderWeb. I then went to SpyderWeb, and have settled with MystiLavendar for a few years now. I got the name by using my AD&D character at the time, Mystiana Bordeau, and my City of Heroes character at the time, Lavendar. Lavendar was probably my favorite character in any game. She was a kitty-woman hero that was purple-leather clad, with the ability that poisonous spikes would explode from her whole body. She could attack with them, or chuck them, and inflict a poisonous attack. I miss playing her sometimes.

8. I get anxious watching any movie to do with zombies. Even the stupid silly ones, but not as much.

Okay, so there you are..hard pressed to come up with 8, but I made it. I don't, however, have 8 people to tag, so if you want to do it, go for it, and consider yourself tagged by me! :oD

*jumps up and down excitedly*

My book's in Tulsa!! My book's in Tulsa!!

*does a little boogie dance*

But I'm behind! I'm only a 1/4th of the way through Year 5, Order of the Phoenix and Year 7 will be here probably tomorrow! I started rereading them towards the beginning of July, thinking I'd make it before Deathly Hollows made it here, but I guess I was wrong. I need to get cracking!! *grins*

In other news, Roger and I got Tdap shots yesterday..(Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis). It's horrible. It didn't hurt going in, but about 5 minutes afterwards, I could feel it burning, like someone was poking me with hot needles and injecting hot water. It ached all up my neck, and down my entire arm. My arm is really sore, and had trouble sleeping last night. It is still sore; however, Roger got it worse. His doesn't hurt as bad, he said it just feels like he overexercised his arm muscle, but it made him ill. He was running a low grade fever, dizzy, nauseous and has been sleeping since he got home. Hopefully he feels better tomorrow.

Harry Potter

And the Order of the Phoenix.

First off:
I would be *very* heartbroken if the rumors about the cast change are true. They only have 2 movies left to go, and I think the last 2 films with a few different members in the cast or even a full cast change would majorly decrease the flavor, attractiveness, and kinship you feel with the first 5 movies. I hope they can hang on just a little bit longer...

Well! I had the privilege of attending the movie Sunday, with Roger, my mom and dad, my sister and Marcus, and a good friend-Brian. We decided, after a suggestion from my husband, to try out the IMAX version of the film. If you've never attended an IMAX movie, you should. You're in for a real treat!!

The tickets are a little more expensive (if bought online, $11.25), but the screen is huge, and the surround sound will make you breathless. You start off watching the movie like a normal, if rather large, movie screen. Then the scene starting with the group headed off to the Ministry to intercept Harry's vision of Sirius being tortured starts the 3-D part off. You get the cue to put on your hideously large 3-D glasses, and then prepare to be awestruck. The battle with the Death Eaters, Sirius' death, and Dumbledore's duel with Voldemort are all in 3-D. It was absolutely stunning!

Okay enough about IMAX! *grins* The movie was superb as well. I had ticked off moments of the book in my head, expecting to see them in the movie, and almost every one of them were in it. Of course there were things left out and/or changed, just like all of the movies, but it didn't ruin it for me. Severus was looking dark and sexier than ever, I kept having illegal thoughts about a certain run of pictures of Harry/Daniel, and a lot of the other boys are also growing up to be fine looking gentlemen.

Overall, I was very impressed, and wish to see it again and again!

You Are Winter!

What Season Woman Are You?

You Are a Brownie
Decadent and intense, you aren't for the weakhearted. Those who can deal with your strong flavor find out how sweet you really are.

What Dessert Are You Most Like?

You Are a Peacemaker Soul
You strive to please others and compromise anyway you can. War or conflict bothers you, and you would do anything to keep the peace. You are a good mediator and a true negotiator. Sometimes you do too much, trying so hard to make people happy.
While you keep the peace, you tend to be secretly judgmental.You lose respect for people who don't like to both give and take.On the flip side, you've got a great sense of humor and wit. You're always dimplomatic and able to give good advice.

Souls you are most compatible with: Warrior Soul, Hunter Soul and Visionary Soul

What Kind of Soul Are You?

Your Mind is PG-13 Rated
Your mind is definitely a little dirty. You're naughty, but not trashy. You don't shy away from a dirty joke, and you're clearly not a prude.
