We make the Yule Ball look like dump

I'm jonesing another Harry Potter dress up party something fierce. Luckily Ms. Carly Curtis has a birthday coming up, and I know that she's always up for a cauldron full of hot, strong love. And HP costumes.

Here are some of the best shots of the absolute best thing we did all of Summer 2009:

Imprisoned Bellatrix...simply brilliant. "YOU FILTHY HALFBLOOD"

Merope and Kreacher...seriously how did we come up with this?! Don't answer. I already know it was divine intervention.

This guy brought a REAL STUFFED BADGER as part of his Hufflepuff Heir costume.


We even had awards, like this Salazar Slytherin fork, which Ludo Bagman won.


I mean seriously--look at Hedwig and Colin Creevey. How was this party not featured on the news (Muggle or Daily Prophet, either one)??


Dr. Granger, D.D.S., Kreacher, and a Weird Sister rounded off the evening.
Let's review, shall we?
CHARACTERS REPRESENTED AT LAST YEAR'S HP BLOWOUT
  • Merope
  • Kreacher
  • Weird Sister
  • Hedwig
  • Colin Creevey
  • Ludo Bagman
  • Hermione's mom
  • Azkaban Bellatrix
  • Hufflepuff with included badger

Well folks, it'll be tough to top last year's costumes, but I know we can all dig even deeper and whip up some ideas that are somehow even more obscure.

My friends are AMAZING

I just want to make a difference

So they said I had to post a review of this amazing towel I bought online. And then they said they could put it on my blog. They weren't lying!


A WBSHOP.COM EXCLUSIVE! This super soft 100% cotton Harry Potter beach and bath towel measures approximately 54 inches long by 27 inches wide and features a large and colorful Hogwarts crest centered against a vivid background with the four individual house crests at each corner.

Totally bomb towel

"You met him Sunday. It's barely Thursday morning."

Well here's the haircut. I made a huge deal about it like a doofus and then provided no follow-up.
Anyways, here's a list.
WORST COUPLES


  • George Costanza and Susan: For reals though. They hate each other.

  • Romeo and Juliet: Don't you just hate them? That isn't love. "You took a roofie from a priest. Look at your life. Look at your choices." If you have any brains/sense of humor at all, click HERE

  • Mr. Collins and Charlotte Lucas: Misery. Pure, unadulterated misery forever.

  • Dan and Vanessa: Ughhhhh I would rather watch Jenny cry all twenty thousand pounds of mascara off of her cocaine raccoon eyes than ever listen to Dan and Vanessa speak to each other. Yes, I said it.

  • Lupin and Tonks: *SPOILER ALERT* Maybe they're not the worst Harry Potter couple, I'm looking at you, Harry and Ginny, but they clearly did not think this through. Shouldn't Lupin have told Tonks that he was afraid of having completely awesome hybrid werewolf-metamorphagus kids BEFORE they got married? Yeesh.

  • Prince Eric and Human Ursula: You shouldn't just go for the second hot girl you come across because there's a chance that she's a fatty octopus.

  • Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson: This one still hurts.
