Same bat time, same bat place  

I think I've been declared officially dead...note to self: you cannot operate on five hours' sleep! No really, I mean it!

My mother should be paying me for all the typing I'm doing for her. Screw Masterses, she needs to do a basic computer skills course. On the plus side, I now know how to do a Harvard referencing system...yayness.

Oh, and I suck culinary ass. I managed to burn, not just the mince tonight, but also a tea towel. Fun fact for today: scorched towels smell like onions. Really make your eyes water too, funny that...

Bought the Frames 'Dance the Devil' album. Dirt cheap, natch, as who knows who the Frames are? (Or, a more pertinent question, who listens to them?) One more to go, and I own HMV's entire collection...

Hey, cynicalpirate ! Did a drabble after all...just no keeping an, er, good (?) girl down...H/D, sans doute, and of the nightmare/dream theme you wanted. Muah.

Harry awoke sweating, the sheets in a ball at his feet. In his dream - no, in his nightmare - it must have been as hot as hell, because he’d wrestled himself out of, not only his blankets, but his pyjama top too. It lay in an uncomfortably bulky bundle just under his lower back. However, the midwinter’s night was icy-cold, and he shivered as his consciousness registered the freezing air hitting his bare, perspiring skin.

It couldn’t have been a Voldemort nightmare, because his scar lay flat, innocent and painless on his forehead. It had to be a regular, run-of-the-mill, ordinary sort of nightmare, and wasn’t is strange to think Harry Potter could get a bad dream that was just like anyone else’s? After everything that had happened, it seemed a little unfair. Or something.

Well. He frowned. He wasn’t at all sure, actually, that other people dreamed nightmares like these, these nightmares that seemed like bliss. He reckoned they were pretty unique. No matter, though - any dream featuring blonde-haired boys, and sneering, red mouths and - that many unnatural uses for a Quidditch pitch and two broomsticks - couldn’t but be classified as a nightmare. Couldn’t but be.

Harry looked down, and sighed.

The effect they had on his hormone-ridden body was most definitely a nightmare, that was for sure and certain.

Oh, just don't ask what goes on in my bored, over-heated little brain. Incidentally, 225 words (hey, that's a multiple of five, right! w00t, I remembers maths!!).

Current Mood: coldcold
Current Music: 'Rent Day Blues', the Frames

. . .


That was so cleverly done. *mighty applause* I could never have pulled it off so well.


And cooking even the simplest things can turn out to be ridiculously difficult. I, for one, could burn a salad. xD

That's about as dirrrty as it'll get. Thankfully. But dreaming and waking up in the middle of the night? There is nothing else...

Oh, I've burned spaghetti too. And gravy. And don't forget toast...

If I ever manage to move out of home, I shall promptly die of starvation and/or food poisoning.

Yep, sadly. Such things seem to be glorified among some certain circles, and indeed almost welcomed. . . until you hit menopause. Then it's hot flashes, which are not cool at all. xD

Clam chowder, bread, macaroni, fishsticks. My parents don't let me cook any more, or even take things out of the oven. My ten-year oldsister has to do it for me. xD

Ah, but that is why we have such lovely fast-food places.

Oh dear...you can't have had personal experience of menopause? Please tell me not. *pauses* Yes, I'm stupid, much?

Wow...I've only eaten...bread...out of all those things. Ha. My eleven-year-old brother gives out when I ruin food, but catch him lifting a finger to help!

Oh, but teh ebil!!
gabbysun on November 30th, 2004 11:45 am (UTC)
xD I'm fourteen. I should hope not.

:O! Clam chowder is teh yummy. And fishsticks are pretty decent too. *sucker for fish* And brudders are wicked like that.

every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on November 30th, 2004 11:50 am (UTC)
Yes, because I was thinking that...!

Oh, gods. Fish. Cannot stand it. Them. Whatever. But respect for swallowing the slime, I must say. You cool.
Do you have many? Brothers, that is, not fish. I've one only, thank gods, no sisters.

Yup. McDonalds. 'nuff said.
gabbysun on November 30th, 2004 09:16 pm (UTC)

OMG how can you not like fish!? :( Shock! Dismay! Profound bewilderment!

Nah, no brothers. But I hang around people with brothers enough to know how bad they can be.

xD MMM-MMM. Have you ever seen Supersize Me, incidentally? That documentary of that one guy who ate at Mickey Dee's for a straight month?

Man. You seriously should. Crazy stuff.a
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on December 1st, 2004 12:25 pm (UTC)
VERY easily, considering my foodstuffs of choice are pizza and chocolate...I'm not and never have been a good eater, and fish = slime in my world.

It would be okay if he was older, and could bring his friends home, but sadly no.

I've heard about it! 'His body hated him', right? Jeez, I'd hate my body too! I get spots just from looking at Dr Pepper! (Drink it anyway...xD)
gabbysun on December 1st, 2004 02:25 pm (UTC)
AWWWW. :( But I thoroughly support chocolate with every fiber of my being, so :D!

. . . xD! How old are you?

*grin* I've sworn off soda . . . I really never did like it that much either, I've discovered, so I just don't drink the stuff anymore.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on December 2nd, 2004 01:57 pm (UTC)
Fiber...hahaha. That is one of the most evillest of American words. xD.

Muah, I'm eighteen. Nineteen in April - I'm an Aries! (And proud of it, of course. Natch.)

Oh! My parents didn't let me drink it when I was small, so naturally I now drink it constantly. I'd rather it to alcopops and everything, when I go out (mainly because Fanta Exotic has almost as bad an effect on me as vodka...eep.)
gabbysun on December 2nd, 2004 02:11 pm (UTC)
. . . xD D'aw.

AAAARGGHHH SO MUCH OLDER THAN ME. I am jealous. :( I am a Sagita . . . Sagit . . . Sagitta . . . OH MAN FORGET IT.

xD My parents don't let me nor my sister drink any caffeinated (STUNT YOUR BRAIN AND GROWTH!) drinks, but I find that chocolate seems to work just as well. So glee! xD
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on December 2nd, 2004 02:36 pm (UTC)
Sagittarius? Yup, I figured that already! Means we're very compatible, both being Fire signs (who RULE, incidentally). w00t!

Don't worry - you'll turn out just like me, and be a caffeine addict instead of an alcoholic!
gabbysun on December 2nd, 2004 02:47 pm (UTC)
YEAH! (Here I'd say something really punny along the lines of "BURN, BABY, BURN" but because I am kind to your sanity I won't. :D)

W00t to the twelfth power!!!11111111one xD
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on December 3rd, 2004 07:22 am (UTC)
Yay Ash! (...but why do they KEEP ON playing 'Candy' and not 'Burn Baby Burn' which is yards better?)

Does the 12th power=caffeine? Cool!
gabbysun on December 3rd, 2004 03:34 pm (UTC)
. . . xD

Um, okay!

You do know that ALL your icons are insanely cool, right?
gabbysun on December 4th, 2004 03:39 pm (UTC)
It's my current favorite, by fritters. xD
Insufferable, man.cynicalpirate on November 30th, 2004 12:16 pm (UTC)
Ok, I'm kicking people off my f-list so I don't miss drabbles like this again! I love naughty dreams - especially when Harry has them - and this was really well written and very clever. *muahs back*

Damn you. I see what you meant about your 'unsuitable' H/D dreams... I wish I had them...
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on November 30th, 2004 12:29 pm (UTC)
Aw, don't do that...this journal will probably outsurvive a nuclear holocaust, most likely, so you can still back-read.

Never written drabbles before...as you once said, they tend to get BIGGER. But I'm not up for writing porn, now or ever, and that's what this'd turn into!

Just try wearing your blazer to bed again, I imagine. xD.
