Another entry from the Laundry Room of Awesome...

What in the world?!, you may ask. 

No, really, you may... 

Go ahead.... Ask. 

Well, since you asked... that, my friends, is (a good chunk of) a chapter from Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. Chapter 33. Need I say more?

Okay. I need to say more. 

I am a geek.... almost of uber geek status. You know those cute little family decals that people put on their minivan... Mine are daleks. Two big ones, 4 little ones and 2 K-9s. Don't know what that means? It's just as well...
I also have a decal on my car that says 9 3/4.

See. Geek.

SO! When I saw this idea on pinterest, I had to have it. And I knew immediately which chapter I would use. 
The Prince's Tale, of course. 
Snape. Such a tragic hero. 


My fail was that I grossly underestimated just how long that chapter was, and how much wall space I had. And how much my neck would kill me. And how I thought I could surely fit it all in above the shelf. And how writing with sharpie on a wall that has been textured takes twice as long.


So I had planned on stopping at the part where Snape says, "Always." But I couldn't even fit in that much. The last line I wrote was, "...and even with his poorly cut hair and his odd clothes, he struck an oddly impressive figure sprawled in front of her, brimful of confidence in his destiny..."


I loves him.

Here's a quickie!!

I loved this idea... and it goes well in the Laundry Room of Awesome that I am creating...

Useful to cover a few of the myriad dings and scratches on my bazillion years old  Kenmore.

Blessings Bag

Despite my horrible skills in photography (including the fact that I took this in the car...), this should probably be considered a win just by virtue of what it is...

Put together a bag of things like travel size deodorant, soap, toothbrush/paste, bottled water and some nutritional snacks like energy bars, raisins, fruit leather, etc to keep in your car, in case you come across someone who is homeless. My personal fail was that I put some chocolate cookies in there... not conducive to leaving the bag in your car. :-/  I also added $2 to mine. Not a lot, but enough to make a phone call, take the bus, or buy some food. 

And no, I haven't found anyone to give it to yet.... :(
