    While doing some reading at work, I looked down at my Jefferson Memorial bookmark and realized that I have had it for many years now. For the majority of the past year, it resided in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as my Read-Along bookmark. So, I have been using this Monticello bookmark for all other books. (Yes, I'm a fan of Thomas Jefferson.) My favorite bookmark that I ever had was a metal butterfly that went over the spine. Unfortunately, that was not the best bookmark for traveling and it must've broken during a trip in my backpack. When I can't find a bookmark or all of mine are occupied, I find a Post-it Note and fold it in half. Do you have any interesting bookmark stories? Since Slytherins are rather ambiguous, I'll leave this topic open to interpretation. (You may discuss your browser bookmarks as well, but please keep links out of your post.)

    The Order of the Phoenix - Task 2

    In RL, I'm proud of my back-to-back silver medals at the National Science Olympiad tournaments. It was for the same event both years - Water Quality. Although there was a different focus each year, any topic associated with freshwater was fair game, ranging from rivers/streams to lakes to glaciers. For volleyball... my first pancake! Even though a pancake is more of a last-ditch defensive maneuver, the realization that I could actually pull off a pancake was momentous. (It also helped that my team actually won the point after the pancake! Doesn't happen a lot.) On HOL, I've kind of been thrown into positions that I never expected. I was asked to join Quidditch Board at a time when I considered myself "just a Seeker." And yeah, while EVERYONE expected me to come to Slytherin, I didn't expect a: "Hey, can you be Head of House of a House you haven't even officially joined yet?" I like to think that I did these positions justice and made positive changes.

    Storage Space

    Where do you store your board games? Do you stick them all in a closet or do you have a shelf designated for your games? Are your games stacked horizontally or shelved vertically? Do you have a specific system (i.e. alphabetically sorted) to locate your games with ease? Some board games also come with excellent box inserts for the storage of all the pieces. Are there any that you have found impressive? Have you ever invested in buying a box insert for a board game or made your own? Are you a fan of plastic bags? Do you sleeve your cards? Any other storage issues are fair game!

    Those who pay extra attention to the Dungeons may have noticed that a few topics have been moved into the Visitors Couch forum. They came from a Near the Fire forum that was originally meant for discussions for Slytherins only. However, we have decided to merge the two, which means we could use a new name for Visitors Couch... or not. Do you think we should keep 'Visitors Couch' or give it a new name? Any suggestions for a new forum name are welcome! (If you aren't comfortable posting your thoughts below, please send me a PM.)

    A Peck of Owls - Task 2

    Wordplay was definitely present in this chapter. The chapter title was even taken from the following malapropism*: *A malapropism is the verbal mistake in which a word is substituted with another word that sounds similar but means something entirely different, often to comedic effect. Mrs. Figg also said a couple of proverbs to Harry that have similar Muggle counterparts. Share another proverb from the series that you like or make one up! 10 scales if posted by Sunday 16th September, 23:59 HOL time. 5 scales if posted after that but before Sunday 30th September, 23:59 HOL time.

    Favorite Movies of All Time

    Finding Forrester! It's the story of an up-and-coming writer and his mentor. I really like it when people at different stages of their lives help each other out. There's also basketball involved, which I used to be very into. My favorite line from this movie is: "The key to a woman's heart is an unexpected gift at an unexpected time." A close second is Minority Report. I loved the overall mystery and thriller feel of the film. The theme of choice is very powerful. I remember going to see this in theaters with some friends and telling my dad he would like it. He made a face and said, "But Tom Cruise is in it." Eventually, he did watch it and he liked it. My favorite animated movie is Meet the Robinsons. There's time travel! All the characters are fun and quirky. It teaches you the importance of family and to be aware of how you treat those around you.
