Craft store

I'm going to the craft store today. I have a 50% coupon to spend at Michael's and one at JoAnns. I wish their yarn wasn't all synthetic. If I can't find any notions or other cute item, then I'll have to select some kind of yarn. They do have the fisherman's yarn, and I think it would felt just fine. I guess if I can find nothing else, I'll get a skein of that and make I dunno what!

Game 4: Eggs--golden dragon or blast ended skroot variety?

We are part way through the week. I'm no longer sure what kind of egg I'm hunting for. I think some eggs are the dragon variety...very pretty, golden eggs. I have not found any of those yet. Anytime I've found an egg it blasts off in an entirely frightful manner. How did I end up in a nest of blast ended skroots?

And where did everyone else go? ...oh now I see RUN!!

Its the 37th blast ended skroot egg!

Summer Camp Games #3 Boggarts!

A Boggart attacked me at summer camp today. So frightening when he revealed himself in the form of:

The Grim!

I almost couldn't contain myself but finally managed to wave my wand and shout Ridikkulus!

At last the horrifying Grim Reaper turned into nothing but a cute little Grim Reaper amigurumi! Here is another shot so you can see compared to a quarter just how small this adorable Grim Reaper is.

Who said what?!? Summer camp games part 2

When in doubt go to the library.

--Ron Weasley

Summer Camp Games #2

In the second volume of the HP books by JK Rowling, The (#1)Chrome Cab Festers {Chamber of Secrets}, we continue to learn the incredible adventures of Hogwarts student (#2) Parry He Trot {Harry Potter} and his friends (#3) Oral Weensy {Ron Weasley} and (#4)Angering Her More {Hermione Granger}. Belonging to the house of (#5) Dry Off Grin {Gryffindor}, they attend Defense Against the (#6) Ark Darts {Dark Arts} taught by Wizarding celebrity (#7) Oracle Dorky Light {Gilderoy Lockhart}, a none-too-bright fellow who cannot even handle pixies!

In The (#8) Chrome Cab Festers {Chamber of Secrets}, we also meet Dobby a (#9)See Flu Oh {House Elf} for the first time. Determined Dobby seeks to sabotage the return of (#10) Parry He Trot {Harry Potter} to Hogwarts and is pretty persistent but is unsuccessful. After a few weeks at school, the deceased Ravenclaw student who haunts the girls lavatory, also known as (#11) My Molten Grain {Moaning Myrtle}, shows (#12) Parry He Trot {Harry Potter} and (#13) Oral Weensy {Ron Weasley} an old empty diary that dropped through her ghostly form out of thin air!

Many nifty things continue to happen for the next several months… we won’t go into all the juicy details right now… however, the ending is prime reading indeed!! (#14) Parry He Trot {Harry Potter} finally kills Tom Riddle’s (a.k.a #15Mold Voter {Voldemort}) sneaky diary (which we now know is a #16 Crux Rho {Horcrux}) and saves the sister of (#17) Oral Weensy {Ron Weasley}, (#18) Gayly Nine Sew {Ginny Weasley}!!!

Oh! Of course, we must mention that the thickheaded (#19) Oracle Dorky Light {Gilderoy Lockhart} unintentionally erased his own memory, so he won’t be back for book three, The (#20) Snob In A Froze Parka {Prisoner of Azkaban}
