For some brilliantly awesome news, check out jkrowling.com/en to see her announcement that the last book in the wonderful Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will be released to the throngs on July 21st, 2007. 171 days until we can hold the precious book in our hands, people!
Onto other things: Happy belated birthdays to both Celia and Andrew!!! Happy year-older!!! Hope you enjoy the fact that you’re older now. Roo, you’re the first of us. Let us know if there’s anything we should be aware of at 25!
In other news, myself and another youth minister down here, Vanessa, have started The Ugly Sunglasses Club. We spent the afternoon together a few Fridays ago and all the stores in downtown Huntington Beach were having these after Christmas sales. I found one really cool store (no idea the name), but everything in it was $18 or less, and they were playing The Beatles, and the clerk was reading The Half-Blood Prince. So it quickly became my favourite store, overall, for having such a cool attitude to it. And it was there, in that store, that Vanessa and I decided that we would purchase a pair of hideous sunglasses to wear while we’re together having an adventure. And that was the start of it, folks. Vanessa currently has the photos which she keeps reassuring me she’ll bring next time 🙂 I’ll post them once I get them.
Other things going on at this time: I really do not enjoy directing the Confirmation program here, and I am looking at options to either hand it off to capable and dedicated parents, or leave it as an SEP.
Other than that, things are still going. Bilius (my car) needs a new battery. I want to give him an oil change today as well, cause I’m feeling him starting to stress. yup yup. That’s about it.
Okay, so when I get pictures, you guys’ll be the first to know. Hope you’re all doing well otherwise!
