I just realized

I missed the knitting club meeting...

I was a bit ill. I had to see the muggle dentist today, and the doctor tomorrow.


Ah well, while waiting I got a fair bit of knitting done...

Something else occurred to me though- Which 2 house members didn't post at all this week? It had to have been 2 who don't have character blogs... because all of us with character blogs post our quiz answers in them if nothing else...

Quiz #2

First off... I despise word scrambles, word searches, coloring sheets, and writing sentences/words as school assignments. Of course I also despise overly long assignments, such as 30 question math worksheets. Honestly. As Ravenclaws, we are intelligent are we not? We need something intelligent to do...

*twiddles thumbs*

So I went ahead and did my quiz, just so I wouldn't spend all week looking at it and dreading it...

1. TriWizard Tournament
2. Hungarian Horntail
3. Mad Eye Moody
4. Rita Skeeter
5. Unspeakables
6. Snuffles
7. Pensieve
8. Imperius
9. Butterbeer
10. Firebolt

Ravenclaw Knitting Club meeting 1-16-08

Was interesting. We got attacked by a crazy and ended up having to password protect the common room.


We had a nice discussion though. We are planning house shirts. This should be fun.
*insert evil laugh here*

Ah well... not much else to say I suppose...

Ah, Tuesday.

While working on my homework quiz, I realized most of my housemates have wand and patronus info up. Hm. I don't think I'll post my patronus, I mean, honestly, that's kinda personal...

But as for my wand? I have to be different. All these girls have Holly and Birch... and I'm the only one in the house that I know of with Olive.

Wood type: olive
Length: 11½ inches
Core: Phoenix Feather

get your own wand!

Olive wands tend to choose the witch or wizard who possess above average intelligence, not to mention often an overactive imagination. Olive wands are also a favorite of healers and are especially good not only for healing but also for protective spells. Many believe the bearers of Olive wands to be good at decision making - but this is not necessarily so. The owner of an olive wand may be decisive but that does not mean their decisions are the right ones. On the other side of the coin they may be so busy worrying about what is right that they are unable to ever reach a conclusion.

With that noted, I also noticed everyone else seems to have way more posted than I do. I'm just not that social of a person I suppose.

But a little bit about me:
I am a pureblood, but my parents divorced when I was small and my mother married a muggle and gave up her magic. In my opinion, NOT a smart move, but that's a story for another day. I'm not anti-muggle by any means, as my dearest love is most definitely a muggle, bless his heart. I just think that one should use every means of self-preservation one has available, and by giving up her magic, she gave up a vital part of herself.

I'm a bit selfish at times, or so I've been told. In truth, I was almost put in Slytherin. I think a good part of why I wasn't is my true sympathy for muggles. Or perhaps it's just that, well, looking back over my answers to the first quiz, I go way above and beyond. It asks for 4 patronuses and 5 wand woods. I listed them all. I just didn't feel right only listing some of my housemates. I didn't want it to seem like I was playing favorites, so I listed them all...

I decided that maybe there is some use for a blog. If nothing else, just another way to clog up the internet with my ramblings...
