Quick pop in, will catch up later, but also got my Pottermore email tonight and am NOT happy. Ravenclaw. That was always my second House, so okay, fine, but that is just not right. The Hat is wrong, I don’t care what the site or Jo or anyone else says. I am a GRYFFINDOR.
Had to get that off my chest. I don’t know what to think/do about the rest now. The site is awesome, all the extra info, etc., but wow, am I upset. :(
Lemon, I’m giving you many hugs and kisses. I’m so sorry you weren’t sorted into the house in which you identified.
Well, at this rate I’ll end up a Gryffindor or a Slytherin. I’m anxious to hear from JEN and AVA on whether they sorted into their desired house.
LEMON, did you send the Beta test message that you KNOW that wasn’t correct?
MISTIC, if your floor rolled under your feet can’t you see damage? I’m sure that was terrifying all by yourself with your poor dog. The last earthquake I felt I thought some huge truck was passing the house but at least I didn’t think it hit me.
AVA, I’ll be watching the New Castle for more extensive comments.
WON, don’t wait to be caught in a traffic jam and keep us updated.
I have know turned on the Weather Channel to get up to minute news about the Hurricane. I was watching a show on the History Channel Mega Disaters and they were talking about how a catorgory 3 would cause a lot of devestation for NY City. They were also talking about the Hurricane of 1938. Stay safe everyone in this path.
I went to the New Castle to see if anyone had posted about Pottermore. So far just Ava. Wonder how long it will be for the rest of us?
Afternoon all! I’ve been pottering in the garden and watching butterflies but the sky has turned cloudy so I’m indoors.
Lemon Faerie I am so sorry that you have not been sorted into Gryffindor, I know how passionate you are about this:( I would be equally mad if I were to be sorted into Slytherin!
Won_Two I agree with LH, people died in the Japanese tsunami because they didn’t leave the instant they knew the danger. Stay safe everbody! I hope that Daniel will take care in NY, he won’t be used to violently extreme weather.
I’m quite curious about the types of questions and variety of answers available from which to choose on the sorting test. It appears that it is next to impossible to direct oneself where one thinks one wants to go on this thing. I know LEMON would have been choosing the answers that felt most Gryffindor to her.
We have now had two of our known Gryffindors go to other Houses. I can’t wait to find out if JEN stays in RAVENCLAW. Sorry, AVA, I can’t remember what house you are in (Slytherin?). Anyway, I’ll be anxious to hear how you sorted.
I really wonder what the filter is on Jo’s test. I wonder if there isn’t one salient point buried in all those questions that plops you in one house or another. Is that possible or were the questions more thoughtful than that?
Anyway, those are things I would like to discuss at the New Castle.
COOLG, I think they are saying IRENE will only be a category 1 by the time it reaches NYC, still a hurricane but not at category 3. We don’t need another Katrina in NYC.
That’s right, GRAYMAYNE, Dan is about to have an adventure in NYC even if IRENE is only a category 1 when it arrives. They are saying you need to stay off the street to stay out of the flying debris, that you should not go outside to take photos and watch it.
GRAYMAYNE, I must agree. Slytherin is the House that would make me feel shaken to my core, even realizing that is the House to which some of us aspire. That is the only House that would make my head spin.
Both Gryffindor and Ravenclaw feel more “desirable” and “fanciable” to me than the other two Houses. Gryffindor is so chivalrous and daring and Ravenclaw is so lofty in their group intellectual superiority (disregarding Gryffindor Hermione as the top of the class). Reality tells me Hufflepuff is what I will see pop up at the end of my test. The yellow and the “unexciting” aspect of Hufflepuff makes me wistful for something more “flashy” but I will go where I am sent, as directed, with only a bit of whining. I guess that is what makes me a Hufflepuff and I’m getting my whining out of the way in advance.
Looks like a real, real, real bad weekend ahead for anyone on, or within 50 miles of the US East Coast…
The most recent computer forecasting models put the storm track right over the coastline & running between The Outer Banks up to Southern NJ… This puts the eye wall of a Cat 2 or 3 within 10 miles of me on Sunday morning… That is like having a 2 hour long F-1 tornado running over your house… I guess Kippy & I will be heading for the hills of W. Virginia.
WON, do you know some nice place to stay that you can call ahead and make reservations so you can make something of a holiday of it instead of just hunkering down in a Motel 8 on the side of the freeway? Some place with nice restaurants and cute store fronts and/or artisan shops?
LH, there is a casino run by Indians in the WV, foothills… Good food, nice rooms, and they will allow Kippy as long as I keep her in a cage… I will go there I suppose.
This speaks volumes as to how I feel about this.
Well, the tornado warning has expired,,, There is a severe thunderstorm and flash flood warning in effect… It is ‘flashing & booming’ quite a bit, but I am at a high enough elevation that I do not anticipate any flooding here unless a 100 foot tall tsunami hits the Potomac tidal basin!
Won Go! Please! Grab Kippy and go! ;)
Lady Hawke, Sirius B nd Asti, please check CC! Soon. Thanks! ;)
I stayed home today – Migraine. I am not looking forward with pleasure to tomorrow. ;)
Off in search of quiet pursuits that do not require the intense use of the eyes. Ha! Fat chance! ;)
Won If you wait you may not be able to get out because of the lower areas of the roads being flooded! Go! ;)
Won get the heck out of Dodge NOW!!!!!!
I went, I saw, I did.
WON hasn’t posted in well over four hours. Do you think he has done as we “suggested” and just got the heck out of there with Kippy before he became trapped?
DEANIE, sorry about the migraine.
