~*Potter Parade: Happy Veterans/Marauders & Potter Palooza

Question of the Day: Who do you think you would most likely be best friends with from the Wizarding world?

"Oh are you a Prefect, Percy?"

"You should have told us, we had no idea!"
"---Hang on, I think I remember him saying something about it, once..."
"Or twice."
"A minute."
"All summer..."
--Fred & George Weasley, Book 1

7 Days Until Harry Potter #7 Part 1


HAPPY VETERANS DAY!! At least in the Muggle World. I suppose in the Wizarding World today would be HAPPY MARAUDERS DAY!! Thank you so much to those who have fought to protect our great country of America, and thank you to those who have constantly braved battles against You-Know-Who.

Sadly I still have class today, even though pretty much every high school, middle school, and elementary school has closed in honor of this holiday. Heck, I'm sure that even Hogwarts has cancelled classes. Alas, us college people must have no time to lose and must continue to toil away in our lectures and recitations. In fact, I had a film analysis due today, which is why I did not get to publish a PPP (Potter Parade post) yesterday. GAR!

Well, in other news, I went to a spectacular event called ~*PoTtEr PaLoOzA*~ last night at the Union building! It was sponsored by one of our biggest activity-hosting organizations. They had a real Quidditch game (yes, we have a Quidditch team at our school!), Trivia Contest, Costume Competition, and yummy eats in "The Great Hall"! Here are just a few pictures from the event...
Here is The Great Hall. They had lined 4 tables together, just like in the movies. Plus, they'd distinguished each one with a certain color. Yellow for Hufflepuff, red for Gryffindor, etc. We sat at the Ravenclaw table!
Super cool candelabra! Accompanied with two adorable mini cauldrons.
Close-up on the not-so-mini black cauldron. Maybe I should steal it and cook up a Polyjuice Potion...then I could dress up like my professor!!! Mwuahahahaaa!!!!
The Raven. Edgar Allen Poe much? Hmm, there seems to be a Malt ball at his feet. Poor guy, he looks lke he's trying to reach the ball but can't!
Yum yum!! Galleon-sized chocolates, Gryffindor cuppycakes, gruesome Fainting Fancy candies (from F&G's Skiving Snackboxes, no doubt), oh my!

That's all I have for you today! =)

None of our schools shut for remembrance day, so you're not alone :) That does look fun, wish we had a quidditch team! I think if I was best friends with someone it would be Ron, he reminds me of one of my best friends!

It's so funny... my sister and I were talking about this very thing when we were re-watching the 4th Harry Potter movie.

I told her, "You know, I think I could really be friends with Harry."

To which she replied, "I really like Ron."

Come to think of it, I would be friends with all three...um.. no.. there's so many more! I love them all ;)

Um.. yup.. I'm currently finishing the 7th book.. I'm so sad it's over :(

Awesome pictures!
