Sort me!

“I’m the Hogwarts Sorting Hat and I can cap them all. There’s nothing hidden in your head the Sorting Hat can’t see,

So try me on and I will tell you where you ought to be.You might belong in Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart,

Their daring, nerve and chivalry set Gryffindors apart; You might belong in Hufflepuff, where they are just and loyal,

Those patient Hufflepuffs are true and unafraid of toil; Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw, if you’ve a ready mind,

Where those of wit and learning will always find their kind;Or perhaps in Slytherin you’ll make your real friends,

Those cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends.”

– The song of the Hogwarts Sorting Hat

[ch.7 The Sorting Hat]

~Weekly Trivia – May 13th to 19th ~

~*~ ? place – Slytherin – ?%~*~

UPDATED 05/14/2007

I will have to rummage through some books for to double check these……I will update soon.

Trivia #1 What’s the name of this potion? This potion has the colour of molten gold, and while exposed to the air, large drops will leap like goldfish above the surface without spilling.

Felix something……

Trivia #2 Which book is this line from? “Harry and Cho were now too embarrassed to look at each other, let alone talk to each other; what if Ron and Hermione started going out together, then split up? Could their friendship survive it? Harry remembered the few weeks when they had not been talking to each other in third year; he had not enjoyed trying to bridge the distance between them. And then, what if they didn’t split up? What if they became like Bill and Fleur, and it became excrutiatingly embarrassing to be in their presence, so that he was shut out for good?”


Trivia #3 Who utters these words? “Oh I am glad I’m not on duty. I wouldn’t fancy having to go and tell the Irish they’ve got to stop celebrating.”

Mr. Weasley

Ear wax anyone?
It’s Tuesday, May 1st, and we have our partners info! Marie is my partner, and she is a RAVENCLAW! Well, I have already started the process of getting her special yarn, and we’ll see what other extras I can throw in there! This is going to be so much fun!

Lord Voldemort

I joined the Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap .

I sorted as a Hufflepuff, and in true Hufflepuff nature, I joined the Slytherin House.(It is always the smallest group, and they need peeps!)I have always thought the Slytherins were cool.(I love the colors too!) They have the whole bad boy/good boy thing going on. Think Snape….Ummm, YUM! LOL!!(hey, there’s just something about him.) Lucious Draco is a hotty too! OK, seriously, this is going to be a fun swap!

This swap is perfect for me…why you ask?? Well, I couldn’t join the Hogwarts Sock Swap…not ready for that just yet…..but that would have been sooooo cool! In this swap, You knit or sew a kit bag (they didn’t specify crochet……) that will hold the knitting needles, sock yarn, and stitchmarkers. (You include a set of knitting needles, sock yarn, a sock pattern, and stitchmarkers) As always, you can add more items! Anyway, they are taking 150 swappers, so get over there! It starts May 1st. This is great for all of us sock newbies!
