Happy Blogiversary to me!

Today is my blogiversary.  Yipee.  I feel so accomplished.  I started something last February and here it is February again and I'm still doing it.  Of course, it was much more sporatic back then.  I posted only when I was moved, now I'm apparently moved much more often.

I said I was going to host a contest today and that it woud probably involve a poem.  Since tonight's my daughter's 10th birthday party I let her decide.  She wants to ask you five Harry Potter questions (the theme of our party) and have you write a poem about what it is like to turn 10.  I said this might be hard because that was a long time ago for some of us.

But, I digress.

Here's your trivia questions...Big G will pick the winner on Tuesday, February 24th, which is her actual birthday and then we will come up with a great prize. 

We currently don't know what that prize is, but it will be great!

Thanks for playing!

  1. What are the names of Harry's two best friends?
  2. What does Malfoy throw up in the air in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone?
  3. Name two characters who die in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?
  4. Why does Ron's rat have a missing toe?
  5. What is the name of Harry's Godfather?

1. Hermione Granger and Ron Weasly
2. Darn .. you got me there. Read it but I'm 41 so i don't remember it now!
3. Dumbledore (hope no one reads this) and Ron Weasley's brother whose name I can't remember -- the ones that do all the jokes
4. Got me ...
5. is on the tip of my tongue. I know ....Sirus Black.

jeez ... you guys are super duper into Harry Potter. I loved those books. They are the best. I wish she was still writing them.

I'll have to think about the poem some before I can do it. I'm a little tired right now. : )

And Happy Blogiversary! I hope I make it a year too!

Happy Blogiversary Wendy!!! And Happy 10th birthday to Greta!!

Ok, so I cannot do the Mr Linky thing and put this post on MY blog because (yes, I know I am an adult, but we still have to listen to our mom's sometime!) my Mom would FREAK if she knew I have read ALL the HP books more than once and seen every movie at least twice! hehehe
1: Hermione Granger and Ron Weasly
2: A "remembrall"
3: Dobby and Remus Lupin
4: because he is really Peter Pettigrew and his finger was blown off in the ill fated attempt to kill Harry as a baby.
5: Sirius Black

Here is my poem:

When I was ten
Way back then
I did not have a clue

That years in the future
I would sit at a computer
and write this poem for you

Those carefree days
and sunshine's rays
are happy in my mind's eye

I played and ran
I danced and swam
I love those days in hindsight

So dance and run
and swim and jump
and follow your dreams to the end

For when you are grown
and out on your own
you will miss these days, my friend


Word for today is:
which is an ungrateful rat.
