Days 67-73

Day 67: If you could have one prop from the films, what would you take?
The sorting hat. :] Only because I’ll be using it for my talent performance at Miss Deaf America. Otherwise, I’d pick…Oh, there’s too many stuff to choose from. I think I’ll just stick with the sorting hat… haha

Day 68: Which set from the film do you most want to visit? (They’re opening the WB Studio Lot Tour in London by preserving few of the sets for us tourists to look and awe at.)
Most definitely the dungeons where the potions class is at, Slytherin’s common room, Dumbledore’s office, Quidditch field (hehe!), and um…the Great Hall. I’m just in awe with how the staff made the set come to life. 🙂

Day 69: Describe your theory of why you did not obtain a letter from Hogwarts at age 11.
One word: Muggle. -__- Yeah, that’s pretty much it.

Day 70: Free

I loooooove this!

Serious props to that person. I wish I could hear this happen or else I’d totally do this lol

Day 71: What would your Ordinary Wizarding Level (OWLs) results look like? (if you went to Hogwarts, that is 🙂 )
OWLs are graded using the following system:

Passing Grades

  • O – Outstanding
  • E – Exceeds Expectations
  • A – Acceptable

Failing Grades

  • P – Poor
  • D – Dreadful
  • T – Troll

I’m an overachiever when I set my mind to something so most likely I’d be getting O or E. Maybe an A in Herbology. I don’t definitely have a green thumb so…That’s the only course I would be worrying over about.

Day 72: If you met JKR, what would you say to her?
I probably would tell her thank you for making me believe in magic a little more and for making the characters feel like they were truly my friends through and through.

Day 73: Which type of wizarding family would you marry into?
This is a very good question. To be honest, I don’t know… I don’t think I’d marry into a rich family like the Malfoys only because of materialism but to have a lot of connections is a very good thing. So I wouldn’t mind marrying into that family. However, family is forever so Weasley’s family would be an awesome family to marry into. Both of these families are purebloods and I’m a, uhm…mudblood. Not a half-blood or a pureblood, whatsoever.

Until next week!

Days 59 1/4 – 66

Day 59 1/4: (This was on Feb 29th) Free (It’s an extra day!)

Books are better... pwned.

I found this and absolutely agree. This is why I like books better than movies. The only movies I like that has been converted from books are The LOTR and Stieg Larsson’s triology. 🙂

Day 60: Free

haha! 🙂

After reading all of the books and I began to watch the movies, this is what happened during the 8th movie opening scene, Deathly Hallows Part II. Embarrassing, isn’t it? lol 🙂

Day 61: Say the Room of Requirement works – what would you ask it to turn into for you?
Oh boy…I absolutely have no clue. There are so many possibilities of choices about what I could do in that room… That’s a dangerous question, even for me. haha

Day 62: What would the conversation between you and the Sorting Hat look like?
Harper mentioned this, “I’m sure they charm the hat so even the deaf can hear it – after all it’s a thought-based conversation”
The conversation would be interesting between me and the Sorting Hat. We’d probably discuss about how I’d fit in Gryffindor while I’m mentioning I’d fit in perfectly in Slytherin. I doubt that it would be like Malfoy where the hat barely touched his head when it screamed, SLYTHERIN! So…

Day 63: What would you see when you look into the Mirror of the Erised?
To be extremely successful compared to the others in my family who struggle with life and that I could hear.

Day 64: Pensieve Memories II
*Washington DC where I celebrated my birthday week in. Visited Gallaudet, was involved with Hogwarts Society, met a lot of people, had a great time sightseeing (although I would have liked to see more), took a tour with two fantastic males, soaking in the experience of Washington DC, seeing the President very briefly, and having a nice birthday dinner. Oh, can’t forget Georgetown Cupcakes. [drools]
*Every other weekend at Pocatello with the Kauffmans and Aaron. Sure, the mood was up and down but I wouldn’t trade the memories for anything. :]
*Recently last Christmas with the family. It was almost perfect…

Day 65: Free

I love this secret.

Seriously? Wow, I’m surprised that people can be judgmental… about other people’s tastes in books. I probably would feel the same way! More power to this woman who sent in this secret on Postsecret. 🙂

Day 66: If you could change something in the Potter books, what would you change?
Absolutely nothing. Probably the epilogue but otherwise, nothing. It was amazing and I wouldn’t change a thing. 🙂
