  1. February's Journal

    I'm back......for good. Dang, I've missed this place! My dogs are all grown up! Deacon the Terrier and Sherman the Poodle. I'm so inspired by the Olympics, and I, too, have dreams. For the Spring Term, I know I can earn 1500 points, and probably 1700, but I'm going to shoot for 2000. Anyone with me? Hey, never hurts to dream big!

  3. The Unexpected Task - Task 1

    I heard that Fred and George have invented "laughing gas bubbles" and intended to release them on the professors just before the first dance.
  4. The Unexpected Task - Task 2

    Lavender Brown loved all things girly and romantic and really wanted to go to the Yule Ball, but she needed to find a date. She loved Seamus Finnigan's Scottish accent,and she decided he was the boy for her. Seamus, unfortunately, never noticed she had a crush on him, so she decided to make the first move. In Divination class, she passed him a small parchment covered with hearts and roses, showing a moving picture of her giggling face, smiling at him. After class, Seamus sauntered over to her and asked her to be his date for the Yule Ball. She responded to his invitation by kissing him.

    My health issues have been resolved (YES) after several months of a boring yet relaxing lifestyle. I'm going to ease back in to HOL and take it day by day for this term, at the very least. I am now an ice cream free Fortescue! No sugar, very limited dairy. I have a second puppy - a Shih tzu / terrier mix named Deacon He's so adorable. He keeps Sherman on his toes. When they aren't sleeping. they're playing all day long. He's made my life such a joy. Scales awarded ~Max

    Poor Sherman has been neutered today. I was told to not feed him. Finally I could stand his heartbroken looks and his threats to eat the dry wall no longer and called the vet's office. "We ask you not feed him because the anesthesia can make him vomit, but it won't put his life at risk." OH! He ate more than half a bowl of dog food and is currently napping. My wall is safe. BINGO is back! More stories! So many are much better writers than I am - maybe they'll contribute more as well. Can't wait to dig in and write columns for SerpenTimes I really love House newspapers, and all of the different options! Three Head Students now, and I think all three are excellent choices Scales awarded ~Max

  13. Aunt Marge's Big Mistake - Task 1

    I'd describe Hogsmeade as a potentially dangerous place where horrible things may happen (which, considering dangerous events seem to happen everywhere, so in a very real way, it's not far from the truth) and that's why a parent or a guardian's signature is needed. Vernon Dursley would sign the slip in no time!
  14. Prisoner of Azkaban Discussion

    Sure, I've read A Child Called It. The man I was dating at the time was a foster child himself and really wanted to meet the author, and he and I were both working towards degrees in Social Work, so we worked hard and raised money and brought Dave Pelzer to our University for a day of lectures. We got to do lunch with him, and Marty got to spent several hours just talking to him. Very interesting man. What he experienced was horrible beyond words, and as an adult, you could tell he still carries lots of baggage. And I agree with you - had Harry Potter been a real person and a regular child, I don't think he'd behave like Harry Potter. But book Harry Potter also had his mother's love protection spell within his own blood, and I think it affected him in a positive way. He knew he was loved, and that made all of the difference That's my opinion, anyway. 1 Scale awarded ~Max
