lilyofshalott: (Potterpuffs Remus)

I've been toying with the idea lately of changing my journal layout a bit, namely switching from having a repeating wallpaper-style graphic to a fixed banner at the top of the page. Actually, that's not quite right. I suppose what I'm really pondering is whether to have a top banner and have the rest of the layout be "clean" (i.e. with a solid background, similar to [ profile] nentari's layout) or to keep my wallpaper graphic, but no longer have invisible text boxes--or whatever they're called--similar to [ profile] gentle_blessing's layout. I'd probably be doing this to my icon journal first as the variety of shades in the wallpaper graphic has made it rather hard for me to choose text colours that actually show up across the page. Of course I would also need to peruse the [ profile] howto comms to find the proper coding and suchlike. Thoughts? Ideas?

Oh, and a quiz! I know I've taken this before, but I don't think I've ever actually posted it.

Which Mix of the Hogwarts Houses are You? )

In knitting news, I'm nearly halfway through mitteny-mitt the second! Yay! (I shall post pictures of the pair when both are done.) Once I finish it I'll be able to start on Extermaknit! (same needles) for the [ profile] who_knits Good vs Evil Knit-along. Since Daleks count for Evil, I'll have to join Team Evil. ::laughs:: I plan on switching sides as soon as I finish the knitted Dalek of Awesome, however, and making Rose's Doomsday mitts (must.learn.cabling.), finishing my cuddly TARDIS, possibly making a jelly baby or two (no, seriously), and possibly a scarf.

Which brings me to my next question (I already brought this up on [ profile] who_knits, but I figured since many of you lovely people on my flist are Who fans, knitters, or both . . .): The Fourth Doctor's scarf is quite iconic and suchlike, but what scarves would the other Doctors wear? How about Companion-y scarves? Ten's already covered, actually--[ profile] chili_dance posted a WIP picture of a fantastic Tenth Doctor scarf.

And I think it's quite safe to say this post got away from me. Just a bit (hee). Well, I'm off to get ready for bed and do a bit of reading--we're doing Diane Setterfield's The Thirteenth Tale for book club this month and I'm rather enjoying it so far. ^_^

That's all I'm going to say for now. I'm a bit sad the series is over, though.

Oh, and comments will most likely be rife with spoilers for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows . . .

Want to know something really pathetic? I've been procrastinating updating my LJ by making icons *hits self repeatedly with wet lasagna noodles* . . . 'tis sad, I know . . .

Stolen from both Erins, actually: Take the first sentence from the first entry for every month, and put them together together.

notice a pattern? )

lilyofshalott: (Only Time (Erik))

Surprisingly, my O.Chem final this morning wasn't as evil as I thought 'twould be--'twas difficult, yes, but I think I did pretty well (though I might have confused some of the mechanisms) and I may have even gotten part of the bonus question right! :D I went to lunch with Dana, Erin, and Kelly afterwards . . . and then proceeded to do absolutely nothing. Seriously. Since lunch, I've read maybe 3 chapters of The Scarlet Letter, wandered around on LJ (ooh, I should make some icons--I *still* haven't finished my songset yet), read a bunch of fanfiction, and made yet another paper snowflake to add to my wall (since Selinsgrove has no snow yet *is sad*)--which makes a total of 3. And it's not that I'm slacking off, either--I don't have anything to do. I can't go home until Thursday because of my US History final in the morning, but I don't have anything at all on Wednesday and 'tis impossible to study for my History final because 'tis all analysis . . . As promised, here is weekend-ness:

I *heart* my friends . . . but not O. Chem )

And now I'm all caught up--yay :)

lilyofshalott: (So my fantasy)

This is quite possibly the oddest question I've asked all of you, but what do you think my Animagus form would be if I lived in the Harry Potter universe? (And no, this isn't a totally random question--I'm *thinking* about joining a Sorting Hat community and that's one of the sorting questions . . .) Thanks! (and I'll probably be writing a *real* update this afternoon, most likely)

Wow . . . this is my third entry (and second quiz) today, but I couldn't resist:

1971-1978: Yours is the Marauders era. You like a
little bit of mystery and your ideals are
friendship with humour. You're intrigued to
find out how Sirius, James and Peter became
Animagi, and how Remus coped with being a
werewolf at school. Of course you like Harry
and the gang, but Harry wouldn't be who he is
without his parents, would he?

Which Harry Potter era are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

WOOT! I *heart* the Marauders! (esp. Moony *blushes* . . .)

some HP quizzes . . . because I'm bored )
