Before you start oogling my gifts from leafy_lane, I've got a Harry Potter related appeal to make:
The Harry Potter Alliance is waging a war against the dark arts in the real world with the Deathly Hallows Campaign. We're out to destroy seven real life horcruxes, the first of which is the Starvation Wages Horcrux. We're getting people to sign (and get their friends to sign) a petition to get Time/Warner to make all their Harry Potter movie chocolate fair trade. You can sign the petition online (and earn points for your house of choice) at this website. http://thehpalliance.org/action/campaigns/deathly-hallows/horcrux-1/
Now onto my goodies!
Some green and silver fingerless gloves for when I feel like showing my Slytherin side. These went right onto my hands and I didn't take them off all evening. They're nice and loose, which keeps the heated air next to my skin, so although they're thin sock yarn, my hands were actually sweating when I took them off, and my hands are ALWAYS cold. One of them has a dark mark on the back of the hand. They match a Slytherin scarf I already had (I'm a Ravenclaw, honest...sometimes it's just so good to be bad)
A bunch of chocolate frogs in little purple boxes
Nom! But wait, there's more, inside were also:
Chocolate frog collector cards! They went right up on my wall. There's my two faves, Luna Lovegood and Gilderoy Lockhart, plus all the main characters.
Oh no! This Magic Book of Monsters has eaten my hand! And my holiday money, because it's actually a secret compartment book. I've never had one of these! I was keeping my savings in a vitamin bottle.
