Vanity, excitement...and a few things.

Just some ramblings today...

So, they are making new Harry Potter movies. JK sent out an anagram tweet a week or so ago and got everyone pumped about something coming up. Now we find out "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is going to be 3 films! Scheduled to release beginning next year and stretching 4 or 5 years to the final installment. I guess it takes a while to make a movie! And they are set in New York the twenties! I could seriously cry in anticipation. I thought the final movie was the end of the HP universe. I'm so happy to hear that all of us have something more to look forward to. Just a bit of Harry's world makes me feel so so happy! It's embarrassingly silly how much I love those stories.

I'm going to see Elton John on New Year's! I remember singing Crocodile Rock in the car with my parents riding over to the apartments to scrape off caulking. One time I wanted my dad to switch the radio because "Genie in a Bottle" just came out and I loved Christina Aguilera. He was like "nope, I'm driving, I choose"! I'm so glad he taught me about classic music. My appreciation for it has only grown over the years. Honestly, I feel like a big part of why I am who I am has to do with oldies music. Values are instilled in you as a person from all kinds of places - pop culture, teachers, family (of course). I love the music about love and adventure. So much music today is about money and sex. I like that music too, but I always break it up with a little Phil Collins, Elton, Beach Boys...good 'ole Frankie Valli. Music that tells a beautiful, fun story will always be my favorite kind. I can't wait until he sings "Rocket Man". Or, "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues".

Also, I am currently placed second in my fantasy football league. Even though, I know almost nothing about football and still accidentally refer to is as "final fantasy" football because I'm so incredibly out of touch. I think I deserve a slow clap for this. This, and the fact that my team is called Fitchburg Finches....if you don't know now you know.

Before some fun things to share, let me just shamelessly post this photo I love:
Oh, pink and fun and kandi and wonderful ;)
*Don't cha like how I fuzzed out that photo bomber...
Also, that's HP on my chest ya'll.

Now, some stuff:

Never forget
The dream is in my heart
I love costumes
Could die of cuteness
