Conversation with Mom and other news

Tags: , ,
I'm not sure why exactly I feel like sharing this, but I do. This is a conversation I had with my mother this morning:

Me: I've been getting some interesting emails from William and Mary this morning.
Mom: Really? Like what?
Me: Apparently at one of the on-campus construction sites they broke through a gas line.
Mom: Really?
Me: Yeah. They're evacuating parts of the campus and closing down streets and stuff until they get it under control.
Mom: Wow.
Me: Oh, and you know how you mentioned wanting to plan another trip to Disney World?
Mom: Yeah?
Me: If you get that put together before 2010, OK. If it is after 2010 I demand a day at Universal Studios. In 2010 they are opening a Harry Potter theme park at Universal.
Mom: In 2010 you will be 28 years old.
Me: You say that like you think you have a point. Do you think you have a point?
Mom: Well, I kind of thought I did, but obviously not.
Me: Yeah. Silly you.

In related news, I am having a Harry Potter party on Friday, June 15. Anyone who can get to Williamsburg, VA on Friday, June 15 and wants to play HP board and card games, watch HP movies, listen to HP soundtracks, eat HP themed food, discuss all things HP, etc. is invited.

In news somewhat related to that, I have a new roommate for the summer. I didn't know I was going to have one so it is a bit of a surprise, but no big deal. She moved in this weekend and we have communicated via email. I think I mentioned the HP party in the second email I sent her to make sure it would be OK with her. She said an HP party would be excellent and she is envious of my movie collection so it seems we might have similar interests and should get along just fine.
Feeling: Tired
Exploring: Grandparents' in west Texas
Listening: Dog barking right now


What's Taters, Precious?

Oh, I want to come to your party! Will you open up a Floo connection or a Portkey or something? Or buy me a plane ticket?

I don't know how to make a Portkey. I have no fireplace. I have no money for a plane ticket.

I sorry. :-(

I am having a Harry Potter party on Friday, June 15.

You are kidding. I am on vacation then. ARGHHHHH!! :( *sniffle* We will meet one of these days.

Loved your conversation with your mom, lol. :D

Well, bummer. I start my summer job that Saturday and knew I wouldn't be able to get everything together while working so this is the only time I could do it.

I love my mom. She puts up with my snarkiness.

We will make it work one of these days, I have no doubt! :D

Ok...everything I've read so far said it was going to open in 2009...then there are conflicting years on LJ. Haha.

I love your conversation with your mom. It sounds like a conversation I would have with my mom.

I think it is currently listed as late 2009. I figured it was just easier to say 2010 because I'm not sure I'd want to be there right when it opens (OMG! Crowds!) and I'm not sure I've ever heard of a construction project being finished on schedule.

My mom is cool. We have good times. :)

I will totally be there on June 15. By the way, any thoughts on what time you want me to show up? You know, assuming I can bend traffic to my will.
bratty_jedi at 2:56 am on 01 June 2007 (UTC) (Link)
I'm thinking of starting things early afternoon, say 2:00 or 3:00, but I could be talked into a later start time. I just don't want to get too late because my best guess is that I will have to be up at 6:00 or 7:00 the next day (Saturday) to teach so I want to try to be in bed by around 10:00 (like that ever works).

That sounds like a good time to me! For starting, that is.

Okey-smokey. I'm about to send out the email.
