To everyone on my flist -- Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope you have an awesome day, whether you're with family or hanging out by yourself <3 I myself am SO excited this year because I don't have to go to my aunts house. Instead, Tiara and I are making our own dinner -- like we did in college -- and it's gonna be SO MUCH WIN. It will include meatless turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes AND Tiara's speshul sweet potatoes, deviled eggs, and more stuff I can't remember <3 It'll be an awesome starch fest!! I was originally dreading Thanksgiving, but once my mom said it was fine if I spent it with Tiara, I was so excited <3 I have an awesome family right here that includes Tiara, Pickle, and Nagini, and I'm quite happy to spend the day with them <3<3 In fact, I prefer it ^^!
It occurred to me, too, that I've unconsciously been quite "green" about my holidays. For the past few years I've preferred veggie turkey for Thanksgiving, and for Christmas I insist on a fake tree (I HATE the idea of cutting down trees just to let it sit and rot and die in your living room @_@ It's such a waste :( I became really conscious about it a few years ago when I watched them cut down this 200 year old tree for Rockefeller center in NY. It made me so sad to think that tree had been growing and surviving for so much... just to be cut down, killed, and decorated for a month. ugh.) I've also preferred bags over wrapping paper because of ease, but now I think about it they're so much more environmental than paper. All that paper just gets thrown away, but many people save and reuse gift bags <3
In more random news... Tiara and I were laying about watching My Fair Lady this evening when it occurred to me: Professor Higgins IS
that fanon, eccentric Draco Malfoy personality that so many of us love! His mannerisms, his quick, biting insults, his holier-than-thou self-absorbed attitude (with a heart hidden within)... SO DRACO MALFOY <3<3 THEN I thought, crap, wouldn't a My Fair Lady H/D fic be made of WIN!? I could easily see Draco taking in Scruffy Berk Potter on a bet and trying to pass him off as a presentable pureblood who'd been raised in a right-proper wizarding family <3<3 IT'S SO PERFECT. Higgins is even such a CHILD in regards to his mother.
There is no "er" in the English language. Your mangling of words offends my ears. Now, do tell me you have proper robes?
Harry: Um... these aren't proper?
Draco: "Um" is not a word!
And Potter, really
, you have a Chudley Cannons patch over a hole on your elbow. Chudley Cannons. Patch. Hole. NOT PROPER. I'm sure you must beg shamelessly for money daily, what with that unfortunately disfigured face, but must you crawl about on your elbows
? *heavy sigh*
Harry: Malfoy, I'm not poor
Draco: Well, then, that is merely a testament to the fact that no amount of money in the world is going to save you from looking like you were dressed by blind house elves. It's going to take suave, cunning --
Harry: Do you ALWAYS talk this much?
Draco: When one has a modicum
of understanding of the English language, one finds talking to be easy and enjoyable, not... garbled and... frustrating. As you must find it.
So. Effing. Canon.
Someone should write this. One of you fanfic writers out there? bryoneybrynn
