bittersweet bundle of misery

alright youse - even juliatheyounger and at least one other snape fan admitted it was realistic to make him have a pot belly, but i just found (old) pictorial evidence. behold, brevisse agrees with me (i say).

i am not surrounded by any target group needing this rec, but i love brevisse's humour. here the drawings and the text really fit perfectly. for me. and harry does not look annoying, despite being (cutely) portrayed as such. i can't believe it, dear flist, but yes, i fear it is the s-word again. but with a "snack" for starters.

faun & satyr

though i know that my friends know what a faun is, but i belatedly link to a few pics:

randomn, i think (sorry, my brain is both addled and riddled)

naturally it took me till 2 am to sort of empty the kitchen and roll up the carpets. no, this is not a barbaric european custom *stern look* Collapse )

after even less sleep than on work days, father arrived, complaining about the heat before even entering (as per usual and never ever forgotten) breathing labourosly after two minutes, breaking my lamp after 20 minutes and - forgot what else - then leaving me with the guy from krk, Collapse )

as i could not just sit and twiddle my thumbs, let alone sleep or read or sleeep as i so much wanted to - nor eat *stomach ache* - i fiddled around non-stop, hanging up my dozens of jackets (i never wear) properly, putting my dozens of medicines into a drawer (properly), Collapse )

now she is 2 hours late and i worry *gnaws already water-damaged fingers* there are so many more violent attacks on women in this town, we even got a very worrying citizen brochure sent to us (scream! take self-defence lessons! ... it seems everyone but men are in danger ...).
