excitement and a stuffy nose

So Hufflepuff won the second Quidditch match! Or did we? I hear there's talk of a second snitch release...is it like when Cedric wanted to replay the match cause Harry passed out from the Dementors? It is a separate match?
Sorry, I'm really slow today cause i have a lot of swap stuff to finish and I woke up with a sore throat and a stuffed nose. Where did it come from? It's not like I go out a lot, or play in the rain, or kiss boys with head colds(or any for that matter).

And now I have to figure out some instructions for making a journal...it's for another swap I have no idea how I got added to, but I'm in it and my partner's a guy so I'm at a complete failure over what to get him...it's one of those swaps where the only theme is books, and I have to get him "themed yarn" I'm worried my package for him will be too subjective to really understand the theme I'm going with...I chose "dream-world's since he likes Neil Gaiman, Mirror Mirror by Gregory Maguire and wants to read Alice in Wonderland. I got yarn that kinda reminds me of Mirror Mask, and found a sock pattern to go with the yarn called Magic Mirror socks, I made a vine bookmark, bought him Where's Neil Gaiman When You Need Him? CD and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and I wanted to make a journal with a quote from either A Midsummer Night's Dream(one of his favorites) or Sandman, but I've never attempted paper crafts.

But the good news is that my package for my spoilee for this swap is nearly done! I'm almost done with the bag, found a really awesome pattern and a few extra little things that I really hope she likes. Just waiting on the yarn to get here.

Maybe Madame Pomfrey has something I can take cause DayQuil is not working at all! I need to get better before Friday cause I'm planning a secret excursion off the castle grounds to see a former student and teacher perform at a library...
