Awoke shamefully late, thanks to Sentosa trip the day before. Finally
collected my A-Level result certificate! After some wrangling with the Umbridge-like clerk in the school office. Apparently you need your IC and
the card they send you to tell you to get the results. *makes face at the pointless Evil that is Bureaucracy*
Went to the library to get more books. *beams* Wednesday, 25th June 2003
More driving! Have the sinking feeling that the more I drive - well, put it this way. The more bad habits I lose/ the better at certain skills I become (i.e. learning to change gears without losing it on the steering wheel), the worse I become at other aspects of driving (such as forgetting to take my foot off the accelerator when changing gears). *thwaps*
You need to take your foot off the accelerator before you change gears (you have to do this while depressing the clutch allthewayyy. But
when you want to release the clutch, you need to step on the accelerator at the same time, so that the transition won't be jerky.) Wah. Cannot think. Wah. *buries head in hands* Thursday, 26th June 2003
Went out for lunch with Mom and bro. First in ages I've eaten at Pizza Hut. Then went to Robinsons with Mom. They're having a sale. I spent a long time staring at orange-and-lime patterned chinaware and a hyacinth-print set of crockery. I feel... Domestic. *startled*
Also saw a pestle and a rack for jars. Jars included.
Made seafood cream linguine for dinner. *weeps* It tasted so much of seafood. *hides in garbage disposal* But my family seemed to think it was fine. *continues weeping*
Cleaned squid. So much ink. All over the sink. Even in their eyes.
I have difficulty synchronising pasta-making and sauce-making. I'd attend to one and leave the other. Need practice.
The next thing I make will be mushroom pasta. Or a bacon carbonara-esque pasta. No seafood until next week.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is on now! ^_^
In the Sorting Hat scene, everyone looked so innocent! So young and so immensely sweet. Even Draco Malfoy. First thought on seeing Malfoy? *eyes widen* He looks too good
to be Malfoy!
I remember my first look at Daniel Radcliffe as Harry. I thought then, and I still do now: This boy is perfect
. I never had an idea in my mind of how Harry should look like, but one look at Radcliffe and I knew - He is it. This is the Boy Who Lived.
Also Hermione is something like four times better-looking than she's described in the book. Where are the buck teeth, for one thing?
Oliver Wood talks like Pippin. It must
be the Scottish accent.
Snape. Snape. Snape. *collapses*
I love his voice...
Bro asked me why Hogwarts has Dungeons. Made Freudian slip. Intended to say, "The Dungeons is where they have Potions", but said, "The Dungeons is where they have Professor -"

What rating is your journal? brought to you by Quizilla
You like fluffiness and romance. You don't want to
see your characters unhappy (even if they
aren't ACTUALLY yours...you remembered that
disclaimer, didn't you?). You don't care what
the pairing is, so long as the fic's two
central character ride off into the
metaphorical sunset together. Your stories are
often full of huggles, kisses, and annoyingly
sweet baby talk. Sometimes, they're
unrealistically romantic. That's just fine with
your readers, though; your stories, with their
cavity-inducing sweetness, are more addictive
than heroin. In fact, you're probably a really
good writer and have got a rather large
following. What Kind of Fanfiction Writer Are You? brought to you by Quizilla
You're Blaise Zabini! You're hardly noticeable.
In fact, some people aren't even sure of your
gender. But no worries, it's all part of the
plan. Nobody ever suspects the quiet boy next
door until it's too late. Which Slytherin are you? brought to you by Quizilla
