Hello Gryffindors. Here's a little fun quiz for you. Hope you enjoy it!

Who is your favorite member of the Order of the Phoenix?

Probably Mad-Eye. He and I have a lot in common.

Favorite person at Hogwarts?

Hagrid. Wait, he's also in the Order of the Phoenix! Well, since Mad-Eye is not at Hogwarts, we will let them each take one and no one's feelings get hurt.

Favorite spell or charm to use?

Does Apparating count?

Best and worst classes at Hogwarts?

Best is History of Magic. Worst is Potions.

Favorite flower?


What is your beverage of choice? Coffee, tea, latte, soda/pop?

Recently, Seltzer

Favorite muggle music?

Not one favorite kind. I like Gregorian Chant, I like Led Zeppelin, I like singing old Civil War Songs... I am not much into hipping and hopping, though.

How many family members do you have?

Family of Origin had five before people started getting married. Family where I am the mother has four.

What do you do on your summer vacation?

Well, I'm not in school so it is not really a summer vacation. I keep on doing what I usually do, and then here or there we may go away for a few days. We like to go to County fairs, and last year we went to Lancaster PA and Gettysburg. Once we went to Cooperstown, and that was SOOO cool because it is not just baseball.

What is your Favorite vacation ever taken?

Probably my honeymoon. We stayed at West Point and at the Mohonk Mountain house.

What is your favorite subject at Hogwarts? Why?

I like History of Magic because I already understand how to understand History. All the others are very difficult for me. Potions is darned near impossible.

How many pairs of shoes (footwear)do you have?

I have not counted recently, and I am not going to go count now, because I do not want to know.

Which are your favorite pair? Right now probably the strappy red high heeled sandals.

How many projects do you have OTN (on the needles)?

I have needles with projects on them since 1991. Do you really want me to go count them all?????

I am actively working or thinking of working on at least 3 pair of socks, a shawl, a blanket square, and probably a few other things I am not registering in my mind at the moment.
What is the oldest project you're working on and when did you cast it on?

An Avocado green sweater I cast on After I was married, but Before my son was born. That was probably around 1990 or 1991.

Favorite food(s)?

Rare Roast beef, my mom's salad with blue cheese and walnuts, my mom's veal marsala, peaches, string beans, certain varieties of apples, chocolate croissants, cranberry and orange muffins like they used to have at Balducci's in the 80's, real thin Italian pizza, Brooklyn Pizza (no, these are not exactly the same) dark chocolate, I could go on for days and days and years....

This assignment is due by Monday night 9pm ET. AND thanks Ophelia B for coming up with much of it!

I'm right there with you about history and the dark chocolate. :) What's your favorite period of muggle history? I'm partial to the period between Black Tuesday and the Cold War.

Those sandals sound pretty great!

And you're right about the differences in those two types of pizzas. :)

Thanks so much for all your help! The Met will be great, DH *loves* Medieval times, knights, armor, all that jazz. He'll adore that! :) Anything else in that vein that we should check out?
