Shanra's Drabble Challenge

Oh readathon how do I love thee, let me count the ways. One two thing four…oh whatever. You get me all pumped up and excited so much so that I feel like shouting READATHON every five seconds. Kind of like someone with terrets READATHON! And then you get here and I can’t sleep in past three in the morning. I drink several cups of coffee and get all jittery, finish a couple of books and feel great, eat too much junk food and get the rock feeling in my tummy. But oh you books. I love you. Squeeze you. READATHON.

And back by popular demand (aren't you guys sick of this??):



Ron, Ron Ron WEASley. Dumbledore! Still haven't figured out what happened to his clothes.

And for those of you who asked, I'm in Central time zone--it's almost 1:00 AM (holy crow it's Sunday!). Scott has gone to bed so now are the quiet hours. He also turned down the AC so I'm freezing my butt off.

How YOU holding up??

Howling with laughter over here! If I were in imminent peril of falling asleep, the HP video would have given me a second wind!

I went ahead and posted an unofficial read-a-thon post at your suggestion :o)

Turn the AC back on? (I was hoping for a Trish vlog when I clicked to see what the movie was all about, you know... ^-~)

*cackles at the drabble* I promise, next time I host a drabble mini-challenge for the Read-a-Thon, I will make that the topic. (Promise subject to the quality of my memory. If I forget, I am not responsible. Only my memory is.)

Trish, sounds like you are doing really well. Keep on going. It is 8am here, so we have all just got up. I feel for you guys reading through the night. It is hard going, but you can do it.
