Ok, we've got homework, and I want to jump right to it.

1- What form does your Patronus take? What does it symbolize for you? A cat. They're clever, stealthy, playful, and cuddly, too.

2- Did you bring a cat, an owl, a toad, or other pet with you? What is their name?
A cat. His name is Pepper. He loves people so much, he's more like a dog. He would have hated being left behind while I went to school.

3- What is your favorite class here at Hogwarts? I think I'm best at Herbology. I've even got a Muggle veggie garden, and love flowers. I'd really like to be better at transfiguration, though. That would be very handy.

4- What is worth sneaking out of the castle for, even if you got caught? I'd definitely do it to help a friend or a house-mate, and probably a school-mate, even a Slytherin :-)

5- What has made you laugh so hard that you've had butterbeer come out your nose? I'm president of a local weaving/spinning/knitting/whatever guild, and at the last meeting, a 4 yo was there. When I called the meeting to order, obviously his mom told him it was time to be quiet, because he came up to me and whispered, "it's time for us to be quiet now." I said "you're right, but I'm the one who does get to talk now, because I'm the president." His eyes got big and round, and he made this little "oohhhh" of amazement. I thought I was so cool, until his mom leaned over to him and said "She's the president of the club, honey, not the country."

6- What yarn do you covet? Link please... There's not a very strong brand preference, but I'd love to try sock yarn that's a bamboo/wool blend. The Zitron Trekking Pro Natura looks very interesting.

7- What is your favorite flavor... the one thing you could simply not live without? Is brand important? Chocolate! Brand is not important, but I much prefer dark chocolate over milk or semi-sweet.

8- How many HSKS terms have you participated in? This is my second term.

9- Do you have a birthday, anniversary or other big Muggle event during this year at Hogwarts? If yes, please tell us what. Nothing. My big fun isn't until June, when I have my birthday, and plan on going to Hong Kong and China again, to see my sister and for fun.

10- You in 5 words. Crafty, creative, clever, compassionate, cheeky :-)


  1. I have a cat too. Her name is Alexandra.

  2. That is some pretty yarn... a lot of colors I would actually use... and of course the chocolate thing is 100% me too as well.
    I like your 5 words also... totally Ravenclaw!

  3. I know I suck at herbology... Plants just die around me. I've been cursed with a black thumb. :( I've always wished I could grow a garden, but everything ALWAYS dies. So I've given up.

  4. I am a HUGE fan of aliteration and so LOVE the fact that you used it in the last question! :)

  5. ROFLMBO That's priceless! The kid thought you were ther President of the United States?! OMGosh! I can't stop laughing! CUTE!

  6. I love that the kid thought you were president. Thats freaking hilarious.

  7. I'm right there with you on the chocolate!! And I probably would have let the kid think I was president of the country. How funny!
