Because I was supposed to go to bed on time tonight, darn it! Argh.

1. Operation: Harlot was successful last night. I arrived at the store at 10:30, unpacked boxes for the first 15 minutes, and then realized that I had 15 minutes and about 25 boxes left and I had to go more quickly. So then I started just opening boxes. Blood was drawn. (Boxes are sharp!) But I found it. Wheeeee. It's wonderful. Better review after I finish reading it.

2. Clapotis = fun. And I haven't even started dropping stitches yet.

3. Watched the fourth Harry Potter movie tonight. Some of the exterior shots seemed oddly cartoony, but I thought it was good overall. Hermione is still my favorite, of course. As always, I found myself sort of wishing that they'd hurry up through the dragon/battle/whatever scenes and get back to the academics and interpersonal relationships and lovely boarding-schoolness. Maybe I should just go find some school stories to read.

4. Don't you hate it when something disappears right after you discover it? Last week, I discovered the green tea lattes at the coffee stand on campus. Now, I don't normally like green tea much, but these were all milky and melony and yum. Yesterday? They were gone. Bah.

5. Interested in reading or contributing to a free online knitting lifestyle magazine? Sort of Glamour meets Knitty, with a little Bust thrown in? Let me know.

I'm sure there was more, but I really, really should be asleep. Good night!

I would definitely read it (because, um, there's that whole knitting addiction).

I would love to read it or write for it. Sounds like fun.

My copy of Steph's book arrived yesterday. I haven't gotten too far yet but I'm enjoying it even more than I did the other two.

Knitting lifestyle magazine? Interesting. Tell more.

I've been on a Potter kick for the past two weeks, rewatching all of the movies a few times. I wish they'd make the movies a bit longer, or release director's cuts like they did with LotR...

I just got my copy of that book, too! Tonight I'll start reading it.

Interested in reading: Definitely!
Contributing: ...maybe...
(though I might know some other people who would be)
What are you planning?

My book is on its way to me from Amazon, should arrive tomorrow :)

I would definitely read the online mag.

Harlot's new book is on my To Buy list the second Easter gets here.
