Pre-wedding

Right now, I'm sitting on the floor of my living room. Adam (acheronwalthers), Nina (ninjapiano), Marlena (fluffvondanger), Liane (lianeandthemusic) and Lauren (devilishlypure) are scattered around the room, watching Music and Lyrics in our only downtime before our friends' wedding this afternoon. The girls are all wearing rather content movie-watching expressions, and Adam keeps laughing and smiling at the jokes. "I'm really worried!" he says. "This movie has yet to have the romantic conflict, and I don't want to see it happen!" It's all kinds of cute. Nina just threw money at me. I realize it's because I bought them pizza, but I like to think it's for last night. Let me tell you... there are few things more exciting to a Harry Potter fangirl than waking up, rolling over, and seeing The Moaning Myrtles next to you.

I'm really, really excited for Graham and Sarah's wedding. The rehearsal yesterday was beautiful enough to make me almost cry, and that was without all the guests and dresses and flowers. I'm doing a reading after the "I do"s, so I'm going to have to look my two close friends in the eye, read about everlasting love, and not get emotional.

Despite the stress of driving people around and staying up late and absentmindedly spending money, I've been having a lot of fun. I've made a new friend, Jackie, and gotten closer to a lot of others. Adam and I seem to hit it off in person more than online, which is an almost unexpected awesome blessing. I got to meet a friend, Jenn, for the first time in person, and she's sort of responsible for my getting into the Harry Potter fandom, so that's cool. Justin Timberlake and I have exchanged a few TERRIBLY AWKWARD words. I feel bad for him, because it's obvious he feels out of place and uncomfortable, and whenever I try to sit next to him, my friends try to rescue me. Our only real conversation was mostly carried out through eye contact amidst lots of small talk and nervous gesturing. Ah, well. He'll be fine.

The conflict has started in the movie. Marlena is hugging a pillow and whining. Adam has a blanket over his mouth, is in the fetal position, and keeps yelling "NO! STOP!" and whimpering.

On that note, I think I'm going to go upstairs and join Nina in my room to put on a dress and mascara and whatnot. I also somehow managed this morning to shave my left leg, but only my right thigh. I have no idea how. It's like smooth, smooth, smooth, PRICKLE. But then again, Sarah's going to look so beautiful, I doubt anyone will be inspecting my hairy right calf.

Sexy: The Harry Potter fandom. For psychotic freaks of nature, we're a kind of hot group.
Unsexy: My right calf! But you knew that already.

Melody said...

I definitely agree--Harry Potter fandom is DAMN sexy.

Have fun at the wedding <3

Josie said...

I hope the wedding goes to plan and everyone has a really good time. Like everybody else reading your blog, I love you Hayley :)

Krazy_4_Kelly said...

I agree about our amazing fandom. You can't find a sexier, more awesome bunch of people =]

Your life is making me jealous right now. I hope you have a ton of fun at the wedding <3

Kaela said...

Wooohoo! +1 for the HP fandom, YEAH :)

Hope that the wedding was all that they expected and more.

The Harry Potter fandom pwns all others.

Miss Hayley,
NOTHING about you is unsexy

It always perplexes me how I manage to miss a leg (or part of a leg) when I shave every other freaking day and have for years and years. It should be ROUTINE. And, of course, my hair grows fast and is quite dark so it's NOTICEABLE.

Someone tell me why they leave that silent "e" in in "noticeable" but leave it out in other words. I can't think of any off the top of my head, but...um...I know they're there?

Katie said...

Tell your mom that I said thanks for last night. She gave me a bit more than just pizza. ;)


Mmk creepy. I'm a community channel poser and I'm bad at it but whatever.

Larangutang said...

Hope the wedding was great.
I agree with you totally on the Moaning Myrtles thing :P

ward said...

You should tell us what the reading you did was. That'd be special. Even if it's something obvious like a really well known Bible verse. That would be super neat if it was from HP.

Lewis :D said...

Hayley, my Hayley. This will be only my second comment on your blog, although I've been reading religiously for months.

Uusually I don't even look at the comments, but reading some of these, I think I'll be doing so much more often. There are so many capital letters and full stops, (periods in America, right?). It's beautiful!

Sure, we Harry Potter fans are sexy. But I think it's been proven that Hayley Hoover/Harry Potter fans are THE sexiest :D

yay irl

Natalie said...

I'm just sat here giggling, imagining the scene of everyone shouting at the tv, trying to change that plotline. I do that all the time.
Have a lovely time at the wedding!

Hey, Hayley!

I always wanted to make a video response to the fiveawesomegirls. I never actually figured out what I wanted to say, though...
It's like (ok, it's different, but you get the point!) when you meet a famous person - you try to think of something that person has never hear before! If I met Elton John (don't ask) I would never tell him I love his songs... That's be... Stupid!

So there you go... Your videos are truly aweome! I wouldn't go as far as saying that they have changed my life, for I'm not as obsessed with youtube and Harry Potter as you guys are, but it certainly reminded me of a simpler time, and of my friends as well! I too have a "Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants", but there are four of us and a pair of pants actually!

Also, I always wanted to ask: aren't you freaked out by cyber-stalkers? It sounds like something that would bother me.

Cheers from Brazil!

The Harry Potter fandom is hot-to-go. I mean honestly, if you think intellectualism is sexy, you've hit the jackpot.

...Then again, in most cases, if you don't think intellectualism is sexy, you've also hit the jackpot.

Catherine said...

I'd inspect your hairy right calf...

SlytherinSweetie said...

Ha ha.
I've forgotten to shave one whole leg before. He he.

I hope you have an incredible time at the wedding. And congrats to Graham and Sarah.

And I agree, we HP nerds are the most awesome. We're also the hottest. lolz.

Indigo said...

Yay for HP fandom! You're awesome Hayley!

It's nice to see people get married on Sunday...oh wait, that was yesterday...never mind

Saturday is cool too.

"there are few things more exciting to a Harry Potter fangirl"

Yeah, I don't think you need to limit that just to the fangirls.

allie said...

The Harry Potter fandom is beautiful, and allows us to connect with other fans.

:tips hat to JK Rowling:

Katy J said...

Hayley, you make me smile. I've been away all summer and intewebzless for the most part. To have the opportunity to spend an hour reading through the posts I've missed this summer has brought glee into my life. :]

Have an awesome time at the wedding!

Nokorola said...

Oh that's funny.

kira902k said...

Haha, sounds like your having a great time. I'm exceedingly jealous. I wish I could wake up to see the Moaning Myrtles nearby.
Oh and the HP fandom really is sexy. Personality and looks. How gorgeous is everyone who is anyone in the fandom? and all the fans? I love it.

Have fun!

Katy said...

You're friends sound adorably endearing!

Ravenclaw2313 said...

Sexy: That I have caught up on the month of Haley blogs I missed while traveling.

Unsexy: The amount of times I now find myself singing "I got a feeling that tonight's gonna be a good night, that tonight's gonna be a good good niiight."

Can't wait to get back into the swing of things with the next blog. You always keep me entertained.

Phoenix said...

We already knew the sexy too. :)

Haha. "Sexy: The Harry Potter fandom. For psychotic freaks of nature, we're a kind of hot group."

True that, Hayley. True that.
