Harry Potter Day (HP20) was Monday, so I cracked open the first volume and reread some of it. I'd forgotten about McGonnagal trying to argue Dumbledore out of leaving H with the Dursleys after she'd done all the Dursley recon that Dumbledore chose not to. *imagines a verse where she and her extended family raised Harry in Scotland, reading to him from Hogwarts: a History
every night of his wee childhood and putting him on a training broom at age 3* She would have been the best gran ever. (I don't suppose this exists, does it?)
Vol gig continues, and lately I've been getting to use my atrophied Spanish skills. Luckily, most Spanish-speakers know a little English or have a bilingual kid with them, so together we've managed to get their questions answered and I've learned some new words. I'm also finding it interesting how often people approach me for help rather than the actual employees. I mean, they don't know I'm a volunteer instead of an employee. Maybe I look especially harmless? Happy to be there? IDK.

I'm working on an epic something for Independence Day and I am so excited! I forget how much I love turning a photo into a 3D yarn thing. Also, this has been super-therapeutic against this week's horrible news cycle.
