so then i rode the hulk again, which is quickly becoming my second favorite roller coaster (first is still expedition: everest over at disney's animal kingdom, and probably will always be number one). and then we did the cat in the hat, which was cute but a bit lame, to be honest. so we hopped over to universal studios and did shrek 4d, which was like a super sensory overload and i don't think i can ride it again without more tarzipan or unless they have stationary seats. it's a theater, like a movie theater, but the seats buck around a bit. not really fun. and then we hit up the simpsons ride. but there were long waits for lots of rides, so we kept it simple and got home by 3pm. much of the rest of the weekend was spent watching the venture brothers or being in bed, and apparently my sloth-like tendencies are out in force this week because i finally dragged myself out of bed at 10:30 and am ready to get back in bed three hours later, to snuggle down with a book and/or to watch harry potter.
instead i figured i'd work on a blog post and try to be 'responsible'. ish. in the interest of full disclosure, i feel the need to share that i am not wearing real pants, just a super old grungy pair of yoga pants. and no shoes. enjoy more photos of harry potterville, and i promish to pull up my big girl panties and have a proper post at some point this week, tarzipan be damned.

|cute glass jars with candies - they were reasonably priced from about $6 and up. it's not just a sticker, either - it's imprinted on the glass. i think the price is worth the jar itself!|
|chocolate frog. i did not purchase one this time, since they're $10 and i'm a cheap bitch.|
|very cute peppermint toads|
|i really don't remember this from any of the books, but it looks DELICIOUS|
