Yee-fuckin'-haw, I'm going to Lumos, baby!  
So I went ahead and ponied up for a transferred Lumos ticket. Yes, I paid more than I would have had I registered before the tickets were sold out, but I suppose I deserve it for being dumb like that. Anyway, what matters is that I'm going to Lumos, baby!

Hahaha, I love your icon! Except for me, registration was quite a bit more than $125. *is a total sucker*

Now I have to buy a Gryffindor tie...and one of Michelle's wands...and the hotel room, flight, and who knows what else. *headdesk*

BTW, pics of our little gathering are up here.

thank you! i made it ages ago :). yeah, i was lucky that i decided so early and could get the discount price for registration.

i need a tie and robes. i have a wand and a bed :). you should ask nqdonne if starrysummer has room or if anyone else has. i'm sure something will open up!

oh! *goes to look*
Miss Sophia: Hermione elitist snotmiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 07:00 am (UTC)
What House are you in?

I actually do have a wand, but Michelle's are much cooler, so....

nqdonne actually did mention something about someone having space in a hotel room, so hopefully that will work out.
Coffeejunkii: harry courtyardcoffeejunkii on April 17th, 2006 07:03 am (UTC)
you can already find out which house they put you in? i usually place myself in gryffindor :).

well, that's true...

yes, yes, i believe she was talking about starrysummer.
Miss Sophia: Gryffindor Braverymiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 07:08 am (UTC)
Wait, they put you into Houses at Lumos? I think we're talking about two different things. I was talking about which House you self-identify with and thus will buy robes and a tie for. Obviously, because I am somewhat of a Hermione lookalike, I'm a Gryffindor. Actually, just like Hermione, I'm pretty sure I'm sort of a borderline Gryffindor/Ravenclaw, but the best Sorting test out there put me in Gryffindor.

But they also Sort you at Lumos? *is confused*
Coffeejunkii: harry smilescoffeejunkii on April 17th, 2006 07:10 am (UTC)
yeah, i think they do! i don't think it means all that much, but they do.

you make a good hermione :). i should take that test. i've only taken one so far and i don't think it was the most in-depth one.
Miss Sophia: Hermione wakes Ron upmiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 07:17 am (UTC)
What do the Lumos people base the House assignments on? Is it just random?

The test was fun. Long, but fun. It was the only decent one I ran across. I took some of the short, lamer ones, and they kept putting me in Ravenclaw...which I was fine with, but the tests themselves were ass, so I couldn't trust them.

i have no idea. someone who went to the witching hour could probably answer that question!

right. i'll take it tomorrow :).

that icon is awesome, btw. i so laughed during that scene!
Miss Sophia: Chinese Fireball Ooohmiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 01:45 pm (UTC)
Bloody hell!

Yeah, the fourth movie had some great random humorous moments.

I NEED that icon, may I gack it?
Miss Sophia: Bros Before Hosmiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 02:35 pm (UTC)
Oh absolutely! I stole it off someone else, so have at!
Miss Sophia: Chinese Fireball Ooohmiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 02:36 pm (UTC)
(If you were talking about my icon, that is...you might have been referring to the Lumos one, in which case you may want to respond to coffeejunkii so she'll see your post.)
alabastardalabastard on April 17th, 2006 03:03 pm (UTC)
It's the barty oooooohhh icon, Draco just has to see it, long inside joke with Us...
Miss Sophia: Chinese Fireball Ooohmiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 03:05 pm (UTC)
Ah, well then in that case, gank away!
Norwegian Blue: Bohemian Snapenorwegianblue47 on April 17th, 2006 11:21 am (UTC)
*stares at icon* Wow. Now I know I really can't afford Lumos. Seeing it all tallied up, like that.
Miss Sophia: Hopeless Fangirlmiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 01:47 pm (UTC)
Yeah...I have a history of using credit cards to pay for things I cannot afford. It's not a good habit, and I don't recommend it. But it does enable me to do lots of fun stuff...that I will be paying for for the rest of my life!
Coffeejunkii: lumoscoffeejunkii on April 17th, 2006 04:08 pm (UTC)
the hundred bucks are from back when i thought my costume designer friend could make robes for me, but she doesn't have time, so i hope to cut down the cost of those! but yeah, i can only afford this by having split the total up over nearly an entire year.
Miss Sophia: Gryffindor Braverymiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 04:21 pm (UTC)
I am an indentured servant to the Mastercard Estate.

BTW, you can get robes for fairly cheap off of places like buycostume.com. I think my Gryffindor robes were only like $25 or $30. I don't recall exactly where I got it from, but it was a retailer that came up pretty quickly from a Google search, IIRC.
alabastardalabastard on April 17th, 2006 12:39 pm (UTC)
I feel your pain, as I paid for all four of us to register, but it will be worth it. So glad you are going, this is going to be mroe than fun.
Miss Sophia: Srslymiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 01:50 pm (UTC)
Yourself, the wife, the son, and the elf? I take it you didn't pay for Potter...

It will most definitely be worth it. *so psyched*
alabastardalabastard on April 17th, 2006 02:09 pm (UTC)
The Son, the Wife, and her sister Bellatrix. The Elf we'll stuff in as suitcase, and Potter's got his own ticket *smirk*

We've also got some paparazzi coming, I hear, fiends coming to Vegas to see Us in person together at last.
Miss Sophia: Hopeless Fangirlmiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 02:13 pm (UTC)
We've also got some paparazzi coming

I hope, for his own sake, that Colin Creevey is not amongst them.
alabastardalabastard on April 17th, 2006 02:28 pm (UTC)
eeep NO! Saving him for Potter *snark*
Miss Sophia: Hopeless Fangirlmiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 02:34 pm (UTC)
Y'know, I'm a bit surprised there's not more Harry/Colin fanfic. The pairing is practically canon. :P
alabastardalabastard on April 17th, 2006 03:05 pm (UTC)
Quite true, though poor Potter ...
Miss Sophia: Hopeless Fangirlmiss_sophia on April 17th, 2006 03:06 pm (UTC)
I dunno, Colin's eagerness to please could have some benefits....
