Sharpe's Siege

So I just finished Sharpe's Siege and I'm nervous about starting the next book, Sharpe's Revenge, because I know what's going to happen with Mrs. Sharpe (Jane). But I suppose I have to get through it to get to the next book. Sharpe's Siege was fabulous. So far one of my favorites.

I also finished watching Volume 1 of the Rifleman Harris Diaries. Jason is quite amusing.

My copy of The Critic arrived too. Hoppie and I have started watching it.

1. Spend 3 months in Azkaban or be given Veritaserum in front of your parents/significant other/boss?
Veritaserum. I usually end up blabbing in response to direct questions anyway. Although I feel like I'm in Azkaban, or at least around dementors, quite a bit. I do keep relieving the worst days of my life. And wondering if there was something I could have done differently.
2. Have a Pensieve or a Time Turner?
Pensieve. It's like a blog, but better!
3. Apparate, use Floo Powder, or fly on a broomstick?
Apparate. It would be like having a transporter.
4. Be a centaur or a merperson?
Centaur. I love the feeling of wind through my hair and I can only imagine that would be intensified by having more hair and being able to run faster. But I'd miss my car. But I don't think merpeople have cars either, so it's a dead wash there.
5. Have dinner with Professor Slughorn or Professor Trelawney?
Trelawney. I like glittering butterflies. I figure he won't allow people to get a word in edgewise. She'll let other people talk as long as she can contribute, so I think it would be pleasant.

I finished a bracelet last night. I've been working on it everytime I go to Liz's. It's been a total slug about working on projects at night. I guess I've been a little burnt out from work. Anyway, on day 1 on at Liz, I did the first two rows. Then I did a couple more rows over the weekend. Then Sunday I finished the base and did the embelishments. Then yesterday I added the clasp. It's a stunning bracelet and even though it took me awhile, I'm going to try again and see what it looks like in other color combinations. Or maybe try to change it up a bit, add a bit of my own flair. We'll see.
I'll try to scan it in this weekend. I'm sorta stupid proud of it. It's based on a pattern I got from my bead a day calendar.
