But first, you must see our beautiful gorgeousness from the Harry Potter movie.
(from left to right: Chauceriangirl (aka Bellatrix Lestrange); Jehara (aka Luna Lovegood); Amethyst (aka Professor Sybill Trelawney); and the incomparable Izzybella (aka Nymphadora Tonks Lupin).
Yes, we had an absolute blast. It was so wonderful to get together with the girls and yak our heads off, and enjoy each other’s company, and catch up on what’s been happening. I think that Jehara needs to seriously consider moving back this way, because I reeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaallllllllllyyyyyyyyyyy miss her. I’m just sayin’.
Now back to summer camp:
Day 16 – How many friends of yours blog/tweet/actively facebook? Has social media helped or hurt your friendships?
Most of my friends and family do blog or actively facebook. I’m not sure about tweeting, because I quit twitter quite a while ago. I was growing obsessed and I already have enough obsessions in my life. However, I do appreciate facebook. There are family members that I now am able to be closer to just by virtue of staying in contact via facebook. I get to see my brand new nieces and nephews not too long after they’re born, and it’s such a treasure. So I’m pro facebook (in moderation). I don’t have a problem with my 10 minutes a day on facebook. And I love staying in touch through blogging. Of course, I don’t know what my friends/family would say about it. I do tend to go on and on and on and on; TMI could be my middle name.
Day 17 – What is your favorite thing about the weekend? Do you take a break from blogs or is this when you catch up?
Oh, I love not having to get up so early in the morning. Normally I leave for work by 6 a.m., so getting to sleep even a little late is nice. And I love not having to go to work. No offense intended; I love my job, and I know how blessed I am to have such a great job and work for such a great team. I love getting to slouch around in shorts. I love taking naps with my snuggle buddies (aka Scout and EmmyLou). I love going to dinner & movie with my honey-bear. I love getting to see my family for Saturday breakfast and Sunday lunch. I love getting to set my own schedule and do what I want to do.
And whether I take a break from blogs or not is solely dependent upon my own wishes. I do make sure to read Post Secret and Cake Wrecks on Sundays, though. Couldn’t miss those.
Day 18 – How do you feel about astrology? What’s your sign, baby, and do you think it matches your personality?
I don’t believe in astrology, so there aren’t any intense feelings one way or another. I am a sagittarius. Does it match my personality? Hang on–let me go to Google (Google is my friend). BRB….
- Traveling – YES
- getting to the heart of the matter – YES
- Freedom – YES
- Laws and meanings – MEH
- the general ‘feel’ of things – YES
- Off the wall theories – YES
- being tied down domestically
- Being constrained — YESYESYESYESYES
- cooling your heels – YES
- bothered with details – YES
So I suppose so. But I also suppose that you could take any other sign and find that it would fit you. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
