Catching up

OK, I've been meaning to post for days, but am finally sitting down to do it.

Now that I've gotten my near death experience out of the way, back to your regularly scheduled fandom stuff.

-Real Life Meme: So I tried calling anoel on... Tuesday? But I only got her answering machine. :( I didn't want to leave a message since it sounded like it was a family machine, and wouldn't it be weird going "Hi! It's Paraka, you know, from the internetz" I almost gave up there, because I was kind of nervous about the whole thing (what if we had nothing to talk about!?) but decided to give it another try before I lost my nerve. maekala was next on my list, but she mentioned she'd be out that night. So I tried calling laii and got *her* VM. I was just about to leave a message, because unlike anoel it sounded like it was just laii's voice mail, when I got a beep indicating that someone was calling me.
I decided to answer the beep instead of leaving a message. The conversation when like this:
Person: Did someone there just call me?
paraka: Umm, I'm not sure. Is this *insert anoel real name*?
Person: No.
paraka: Is this *insert laiis real name*?
laii: Yes...
paraka: Hi! It's Lindsay!
laii: . . . .
paraka: paraka from LJ.

It went well after that. We talked for at least an hour. It was really cool. Although my mom laughed at me and said she could tell I was nervous because I was pacing all over the kitchen. Personally, I could tell I was nervous since I hardly let laii get a word in edge wise. :P

Anyways, it was great fun, and I can't wait to call other people. And maybe talk to laii again. I meant to call people last week, but well, time crept up on me, boom it was the weekend and I was busy busy busy.

-HP Stuff: I did however manage to go see the new Harry Potter movie. It had me squeeing and making happy sounds. I won't get into it, since I'm sure people's flists have already been spammed with details, although if people want to discuss it with me, feel free to leave a comment.
The movie did manage to push back into wanting to read HP fic, so I spent last night searching out and then reading a story.
I also came to the realization that I hate talking about HP fandom stuff with my sister. We move in completely different circles within the fandom (aided by the fact that I don't really move in the fandom at all), and I just don't agree with a lot of what she has to say. It got really annoying on the car ride back home from the movie, and I just wanted her to shut up. It kind of put me in a bad mood, and I've been all anti-social since then. Which really sucked since tomorrow is one of my cousin's birthdays and we all went to a party for her today. I normally enjoy family get together's, but today I just kind of resented the fact that I had to be around people. I'm really kind of moody and bitchy sometimes :-/
