Weekend Report

Weekend Report

In our top story projects are beginning to roll in from the dungeon.  In the midst of OWL fever Slytherins continue to produce excellent projects for all the classes for November.  

In Charms Deadalchemist turned in this lovely collar to commemorate the fashion stylings of Ms. Bellatrix Lestrange.

The dyers are dominating DADA with Bidbid and Vox8 offering the following yarns from their vats.

Voluptousness from Vox8
Beauty from Bidbid
The Himalayas are singing with this offering for the Yeti from Bidbid in Care of Magical Creatures. 

In Transfiguration Joseybug presented this lovely little Slytherin sweater.  Now if she could just produce a travel size hottie to go with it I'd be an even bigger fan.

And in Potions Cdavis made us all go "ooohhhh" at this cute baby bonnet.

Weather:  Continuing stockinette throughout most of the weekend.

Up in the OWLery the examiners have been stunned by the following delightful finals.

Hermionejean's lovely bag.
Peanutzmom's astounding collection of hats.

A dizzying number of house scarfs from Cubejelly

Forgivable Curse of the week:  Holy mother of acrylic alpaca!

As a special feature this week I've decided to outline some potential "inspiration" for classwork based on the class prompts.   Remember an age line has been cast around the bar and you will find hair in unwaxable places if you are under 21.

So without further ado....

Memory Loss
2 oz peach vodka
2 oz
Jamaican dark rum
2 oz
2 oz
apple juice
1 slice

Pour the rum and the vodka over ice into the glass, and then add the rum. Then pour in the apple juice and squeeze the lemon on the top. Do not stir.

Fire Dragon

Pour the rum over the ice in the glass. Add mango juice to nearly fill the glass. Slowly pour the Grenadine in so it settles at the bottom.

Care of Magical Creatures:
Frozen Yeti

Mix ingredients in a blender

History of Magic:
Green Goblin
1/2 pint hard cider
1/2 pint
1 shot
Blue Curacao liqueur

Surprise Me

Pour all ingredients into a shaker with ice cubes. shake, pour into highball glass, serve. Ice can be added to the highball glass to serve it on the rocks.

Head Shrinker

Shake ingredients with ice, strain into a highball glass.

Liquid Sunshine

Shake light rum, triple sec, sweet and sour mix, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Drop a maraschino cherry into the bottom of an old-fashioned glass and add contents of the cocktail shaker. Fill remainder of glass with ice and top with ginger ale. Garnish with orange twist.

Sister Starseeker
2 oz. Light Rum
1 oz. Lemon Juice
1 tsp. Grenadine
4 oz. Tonic Water
1 Lemon Wedge

Pour the rum, lemon juice, grenadine, and tonic water into a highball galss almost filled with ice cubes.  Stir well and garnish with the lemon wedge.

This is Rockinsticks signing off as I believe I am being stalked by my OWL.
