Have returned from my family get-together. It was beyond fabulous. The usual good food, good booze, good company combo with additional aunties and uncles and added drunken dancing and general hilarity.

And brilliantly, after posting about my own amazing childhood birthday parties, my mother turned up with this as her birthday cake.

Mama Blaize for the win!

A pic of the menu from her birthday dinner (complete with wine pairings! I am so spoilt!) under the cut so you can be jealous of our gluttony.

Feel free to hate me for getting to eat and drink all this. And this menu doesn't even mention the pre-dinner nibbles, the "amuse bouche", and the bottles of bubbly. I'm amazed I managed to get up on Sunday at all.

I've missed most of the Delicious debacle while I was away, but it doesn't look pretty. I'm going to give things a few days to settle down and then look into Pinboard as that seems to be where everyone is migrating.

Then, as if I didn't already have enough fandom stuff stealing all my attention and freetime, I got into Pottermore this week. I'm RookQueen63 - let me know your name there if you'd like me to friend you. I'm a Hufflepuff (yay!) and my wand is rowan with unicorn core, 14 1/2 inches, slightly swishy. This stuff makes me more excited than a grown adult really ought to be. The site itself is pretty cool - the artwork is gorgeous and I love the way you interact with it, but if it can't handle the number of people on it at the moment, what's it going to be like when it opens fully?

And finally, some more pics of my Inception cross stitch under the cut. Eight out of sixteen pages of the pattern are complete now! But it's more like 3/4 of the way done. And I've still not reached a stage of rage yet! It's clearly a magical cross stitch project.

WOW! That's an awesome cake!! :O

Yay hufflepuff!! I am not on pottermore but I am like pure hufflepuff~ I'm a little scared to enroll in pottermore in case I'm not a hufflepuff. My twin said she would laugh really hard if I was in Gryfinndor~

And it tasted pretty yummy too!

Loads of people have been complaining that the sorting hat didn't put them in the right house but I'm pretty happy with how Pottermore's sorted me! It doesn't seem to matter that much which house you're in right now though, although I guess that might change when it's not in beta anymore and more stuff gets opened up.
