    Fingerless gloves. I love them and have actually knit some for me and other folks (but I don't have the sections between the fingers - that is sort of irritating to me so nope). Oversize tops - yes! Those are great for layers, and in the northwest part of the USA, layers are a good thing, both for warm and for cold. Ah, fanny packs. How odd, I happen to have a couple of them. One of them is a bright turquoise colour too! Yes, to the bright colours (says she who wears a lot of black....). Scrunchies! Yes! I'm growing my hair out again (from being short short) so will be needing those scrunchies again sooner or later. No to -- shoulder pads, stretch stirrup pants, parachute pants. No to spandex. Maybe to huge earrings. I love them but my ears do not love them. I also like the leg warmers, but don't wear them. I had to look up mullets. As far as I knew, they are a kind of fish ... " The mullets or grey mullets are a family (Mugilidae) of ray-finned fish found worldwide in coastal temperate and tropical waters, and some species in fresh water." Oh, it's a hair cut! Short in front and long in back? (Looks in mirror. That's what my hair looks like ... as it grows out ...well, the bangs are sort of long too, so maybe it's not a mullet ... ) ☺️

    Movies of the 1980s - Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007) has Alan Rickman, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter. Whoa. This is a very strange movie. But Alan Rickman! And he sings. This has been made before -- Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street - in 1982 and starred Angela Lansbury, George Hearn and Cris Groenendaal. It had also been made in 1936 - The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, staring Tod Slaughter, Stella Rho and John Singer. Ah, there are many renditions of this! A made-for-television movie, plays ... evidently it's quite popular. A quick Google search gets this: Another movie which I have watched (and has been remade) is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, but it is of 1971. It was lovely, and staring Gene Wilder. It was sort of scary... no, some parts of it were very scary and 'dark'. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005) is said to be closer to the source material than the original movie. It has a whole different feel to it, too. But then, Gene Wilder has a knack for being apparently innocuous and having a very deep and mysterious and dangerous-in-potential undertone which can be very very scary. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ... I thought I would like it and realized that it is entirely different in feel. So I had to sort of regard it as the same story but not (just like the HP books and the HP movies!)

    Slytherin ABC

    yeah yeah Hero (Severus Snape is a hero, in my eyes) In googling descriptions of him, I found this description of him: “brave, brilliant, honourable, dedicated, witty, also petty, vindictive, childish, tactless and sulky”, and as “doing the Right Thing with exemplary courage whilst bitching about it the whole way”

    " hufflepuff/slytherin friendships are the best and most terrifying thing ever" I just saw this ... and laughed.

    Mashups

    I'm looking for mashups of Harry Potter and Princess Bride. In my wanderings through imaginations great and greater, I found this (which AMY SHRANK DOWN for me). It's not quite a Slytherin mashup but because of the topic, I knew it belonged in here.

    Oh, I knew the answer to this as soon as I read the question. A winged horse, black. Not a thestral, another breed which Newt hasn't encountered yet!

    IRC Activities

    Yes for both. I can pretty much arrange my schedule if I know in advance what time to set aside!

    IRC Activities

    I 'can' but it would be better for me for it to be a Saturday rather than a Sunday, if at all possible.

    I seem to currently have an extreme inability to play the arcade games very well! Arcade games and me - click I've played Tetris some but I haven't played many arcade games and/or computer games. It might be because it used to be that somehow the machine would short out if I tried to play it (and using a hammer to fix it wouldn't work ...) and when trying on a computer things just sort of bounce around. I've no idea how I got that one score in that one room (here in OASIS). I basically clicked arrows and space bar at random until the game stopped. (I've no idea what the ending score was, either, I got that screen capture when it went above the required amount to qualify.) edit: Managed to finally get to a strawberry AND get a screen capture of it. Yay?
