Just spent an entire day driving around in the mountains, soaking in the scenery. It was a wonderful, refreshing day.

Saw Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. I WANNA SEE IT AGAIN. Also, Newt reminds me just. . .so much of Åke it's downright scary. >.>;; HP!Åke even works with dragons. O.o

This has also rekindled my desire to RP the HP!AU. And now I'm researching and I realize that Åke would've gone to Durmstrang (which is apparently most likely in the far north of Norway or Sweden, and not in Russia/the Baltics like I originally thought) - and he would've hated every minute of that military-esque school. But, that means I can have him secretly be a goddamn badass at martial magic and dueling, which Durmstrang is known for. Lol. If he'd been to Hogwarts, he would've been Hufflepuff. xD

DOUBLE POST:

I just had the best goddamn day at work. Which is weird, because I opened at 8:45 so I had to get up at 7:45ish. Not fun. BUT. The customers are always so nice and kind of fun to talk to, even if I have to give two spiels. Then. THEN. This older couple comes through my line, I start off asking how they are, if they found everything okay - they did. And then I hear them talk to each other for a moment and I just kind of froze a bit. That sounds really familiar, I thought. I'm gonna take a chance...

"Är du svensk?"

Turns out, yes. Yes they were. They were from Stockholm, and just visiting their daughter. So I got to chat with them for a few minutes and do the entire transaction in Swedish (apart from looking up a phone number). Which is a huge fucking deal when you live in the middle-of-nowhere, Indiana. They even complimented my Swedish! (And told me I sounded like a Finland-Swede, lol.)

And then my boss gave me a box of Godiva. Again. xD

New Blade Runner looks pretty cool.
