Moving in Mysterious Ways

Remember the other day when I had that whole cobra thing going on? Well, it was perfectly strange, how clear the image of a snake rising in my chest was. I could feel that hood spread, feel the texture of the snake's skin. Can't say I've ever felt anything like that, and it creeped me out. Totally.

The next morning, I laughed at myself but good when I realized I'd been reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows just before the snake images got rolling. You know, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and Nagini and all--no wonder I had snakes on the brain. Don't bother with medications for me—sugar pills will surely do. Can you say "suggestible"?

Remember your Occlumency lessons: no eye contact, clear your mind, stand in your power....

you already have all the happy memories to make an awesome Patronus.

Expecto Patronum!

I may be the only person in the world who has not read a Harry Potter book.

Let me channel Carrie Link here and just say, "No accidents. There was a reason you were reading Harry Potter right then, too."

Love you.
