Today I went to the Harry Potter exhibit at the Museum Of Science and Industry with Steven. It was pretty sweet. We got to pull up mandrakes (I tried to kill one, he was a tough little fucker), shoot quaffles into goals, and sit in Hagrid's chair, which was very comfortable. I also got to gaze upon the very robes worn by Oliver Wood. It was a good time and I got a chocolate frog with Dumbledore's trading card in it. After the exhibit Steven and I went and tried to go into the submarine and ride the flight simulator but the museum got all smart, they charge for everything and have started hyping it up. I remember when no one knew where the flight simulator was and you could ride it three times in a row and they didn't charge. Same with the submarine. We also got to see the fairy tale castle, which has always been my favorite along with the coal mine. That museum is so huge and hard to get around in we were dead by 3pm.
So I just got home and ate a sandwich. The new Paramore song is posted online. I really like it. Again, stepping up, not back. So now my list of most anticipated albums includes SYG, ETID, and Paramore. Oh, and TTNY and The Swellers are in there, too. Does PBC have new stuff coming soon, too? Whatever. Feeling happy.
Also, ATL has managed to make a video that doesn't suck. Sadly, Homegrown did it before and they're kind of hypocritical. Still, they're probably gonna blow up even more. Good for them, I'm guessing that's exactly what they want.
The 4th was Nik's birthday. Steven, Ashley, Nikki, Patrick, and I all had a really wonderful dinner. The food was delicious, Nikki got an extra dessert for being born, and we had some really fun conversations. After that we went to the fireworks which are always good. Steven lent me the 7th HP to read since my copy has been loaned out and I finished it in less than 24 hours. That is what happens when you're left alone in a house for a week and a half and can't drive. I think I've read three of the HP books in like, 10 days.
For now, I am bummed I'm missing No Doubt and the 16th, but Jenna, Gail, and I are gearing up for the road trip out east and I'm pretty psyched. I can't wait to see Gallows and Bayside play!
BTW, 1 month until I get my license back and 2 weeks until I'm 21!
I hope I get to watch MJ's memorial. Should be interesting.
Hope you're all having a lovely July cause I am!
