Weekend Report

I'm Rockinsticks and this is  Weekend Report.

In our top story this week:  House Unity Themes and the parties that love them.  Slytherins are taking up implements of craftstruction this week to commemorate the birth of that half blood prince, potions master, and fun in a frock coat Severus Snape.  One baker in Hogsmede was quoted as saying, "I don't know how we're going to structurally support a cake of the size required for so many witches to jump out of at once."

Celebrations will be continuing through the month of January and spreading into the classrooms throughout the castle.

Weather:  Too much snow, too much cold, and too much flooding.  All good reasons to stay in and craft by the fire.

In other news Slytherin is rocking the points totals this week.  Glancing at base points we have the following unofficial totals:
Divination:  9 projects totaling 135 points
Transfiguration: 10 projects and 150 points
History of Magic:  14 projects giving the snakes 210 points
DADA and Charms:  Both with 18 projects and 540 total points
Potions and Flying:  Both have 19 projects each tallying 570 points
and Herbology with a whopping 20 projects turned in with 300 points.

Unbelievable snakes!  1,905 points and only the middle of the month.

Forgivable Curse of the Week: Purl Biscuits!

In our Wildlife segment 70 count them 70 Slytherin OWLs have been spotted in the area.  If you see a someone in the common room working on their OWL give them an encouraging word.  If every one of those projects is completed this term the house scores 10,500 points!  And even if they only make it to Feb. 28th there are 3,500 points to be earned.

A special salute to Eurekas who is our sole approved NEWT student this term making an attempt at Astronomy and History of Magic.  Craft on you crazy koala snake you.

In the Horcruxes and Hallows Lab this week cake and hotties were shared by Maigret, Knitknot, Pocamilla, Cubejelly, Nightowlknitter, and Vehementwombat.  Sources say Severus Snape was spotted leaving the Lab on the arm of some of his favorite witches.

Finally, from the Sub-Human Interest Desk:  Catering.  If you were to make dinner for Professor Snape for his birthday what would be on the menu?   Would it be a lavish multi-course meal with sweet figs and roasted meats, and red wine topped of with a selection of the world's amazing cheeses or would you drop a sandwich by his door and run?

Leave a comment and give me something entertaining to read.

This is Rockinsticks signing off for another Friday.  Party on snakes.

  1. For Snape's birthday dinner? Sushi, served in a non-PG-13 way. That's all I'm sayin'...
