Pet Peeve #2: the word "sweet"

The word sweet should only be used to describe the antonym of sour and the synonym for someone who is nice.
Anyone found using this word in another context will likely be wearing a pukka shell necklace.
Nothing against Emily.

It's just a pet peeve, if you say it like that I will still love you.

8:42 AM Emily: sweet!
me: you work til 5?
Emily: no, 4.
me: perfect
Emily: So if you want, I'll go check out the stuff, and you can pay me later, if you want
My mom has to go too for another gift
8:43 AM Any ideas?!?
me: oh okay
i'll just pay you
Emily: unless you want to go with me!
me: i would love to go with you
Emily: sweet!
me: i get off work between 12 and 2
so it could totally work
Emily: sweet!
8:44 AM Are you going to be at home, or at your apt?
me: at my home
no one is at my apt during the day so i just chill with the parents
Emily: sweet!
Would you mind going with my mom too?
me: no not at all
Emily: hehehe, she's so cool, it'll be a party! ;)
Emily: Sweet, so we'll swing and pick you up when I get her

SPOILER ALERT! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I bawled. 3 times. And I haven't cried for months!

I love this book so much. Before reading it I made the conclusion, as i am sure many others have also, that the 7th horcrux is the lightning scar on Harry's forhead. I thought for sure Harry would have to die in this book to truly kill Voldemort! But I, as Voldemort, underestimated Harry Potter.

The snitch deal was driving me crazy the entire book! I kept thinking, "HEY!! What about the snitch?" It was worth the anticipation, because it was so beautiful when his dead loved ones walked him to his supposed death. That part was so touching!

I was totally Harry in this book, usually I am Hermione.

I really like that Dumbledore was able to talk things through with him. There was no way Harry could carry on without the information that he gave him. And how crazy it must have been to have Draco's mom lie to Voldemort to help Harry! Ohhhh so good.

That whole wand deal! I loved the look on Voldemort's face! I totally remember Draco disarming the wand from Dumbledore! AHHHH
There were so many twists that were so brilliant. J.K. Rowling is a master artist! I want to read through the whole series now...and make connections and go completely crazy, then go back to a normal life.
