Evil’s Cheat Sheet of Total Domination; Oct 20-26

Oh, dear Snakies, are we having a bit too much of a Zen semester? WAKE UUUUUUUUPPPPP!

Put the Hotties down and back away from the bar.

This week homework posts are as follows:
1. Ravenclaw with 85
2. Hufflepuff with 78
3. Slytherin with 67
4. Gryffindor with 61

Which means we’re barely holding onto second place in October and for the term the Ravenclaws have almost 100 more homework projects than us. And we’re in second place there too, which should tell you that the Claws want the Cup really BAD.

Come on; let’s make it a challenge for them. You know, when you make a Ravenclaw worry they go straight to their spreadsheets and recalculate. I want to see ink smudged faces in class and forgotten quills stuck in student’s hair.

Let’s cause some mayhem and flood the professors with homework – only a few days left in October, then last month of the term.

Be Slythertastic Snakes. Go Slytherin, go!

Evil’s Cheat Sheet to Total Domination; Oct 13-19

Students are decorating with jack-o-lanterns, ghosts and happy Frankenstein heads all over school. It’s such a fun time of year and so easy to scare Muggles, but don’t let too much fun distract from your studies!

This week the standings are as follows:
1. Ravenclaw with 67
2. Hufflepuff with 61
3. Slytherin with 56
4. Gryffindor with 44

This means Ravenclaw has caught up to us to tie for first in October with 129 each. I know Quidditch was lots of points and I dumped a class myself to get it done, but it’s over now, so crank up the ambition and competition by turning in your classes.

There’s just a little over a week left of October!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go Slytherin, go!

The Slug Club, week 7!

Oh snakes! After a bit of unexpected RL nonsense, I am back to bring you the weekly Slug Club. Let the party begin!

Sly4100's hottie pillowcases for HoM would be most welcome in the Dungeons!

Rockinsticks is inspired a little bit by bats and a little bit by everyone's favourite grouchy professor in DADA.

QallieQ keeps her tea cozy in a tea cozy for Ancient Runes.

Erm, I was supposed to have a photo of Mimulus's Charms project, but all I found was an odd shot of these two aubergines. Huh.

Scottish hills and heathers abound in laurel10's Flying socks.

Sharp, fiery, and smoky... I think I'd much rather have joseybug's Potions cowl than a dose of Skele-Gro.

ItsLis's standby project is one of these cute little zombies in Herbology. Rawr!

Astegal's furry puppy paws perfectly capture playful doggyness in Muggle Studies.

Slytherin Tournament of Hotties!!!

We are halfway through the Sweet 16 and the TV Division results are in...

The silver bar is for the first name listed and the green bar is for the second name listed. The numbers represent the percentage of votes.
We should call this bracket the deja vu bracket!  There was one match up this week that could have gone either way.  David Boreanaz vs. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.  All week it was back and forth, but the Boreanaz fans came through.  Despite being relatively unknown, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau did pretty well in the SToH.  The hotties definitely moving on are; Nathan Fillion, David Boreanaz, David Tennant, and Alexander Skarsgard.

This week we are back to the Movies with the Movie B Division.  Here are this week's head to head match ups!

(1) Tom Felton vs. (9) Daniel Craig

(5) Jason Issacs vs. (4) Bonnie Wright

Evil’s Cheat Sheet of Total Domination, Oct 6-12

As the weather cools down the competition is heating up! It’s a real tight race this term and it’s still anyone’s game.

This week the Lions pulled ahead with 56 posts
We Snakes were second with 50
And the Claws and Badgers tied with 41

This means the Gryffindors are holding steading to win this month, but overall the Ravenclaw’s still have quite a lead.

What does this mean to Slytherin, you ask? Either way you slice it, we’re not first, so start crafting small to boost the homework count! It’s the time of year for ornaments of all kinds and everyone has a use for a chapstick cozy or tissue holder.

We can do this Noble Slytherins! Eyes on the Prize. Go team!

Staff Saturday!

It's Staff Saturday again here on the blog - and todays interview is brought to you as I sit back and relax  with my feet dangling in the water as I chat with our House Bartender - Joseybug here at the Poolside bar. 

TCI : Joseybug, before I get in to the real questions - I've just got to say- I really like this Electric Popsicle that you made me.  It's De-licious! Thank you very much!   

Joseybug : You are mighty welcome! 

TCI: So let's get into this interview, before I empty my glass.  First question - In addition to serving us as Bartender, I hear you're also a Mama Snake - would you care to say hello to your nesties who I am sure are reading along. 

Joseybug: {Joseybug takes a big breath...} Hello all my snakes in the  Morelia Viridis Nest !!! bcts1022 slytherknit eliseaboo eskimopam rivetkitten robynrenee damiknitter Acemom cookknitwine pdxmama piperredfern knidancer Oshelle sketchymurr and KarenRedBaron

TCI: My my my- that was a mouthful! You seem to have that list down pat - how long have you been a Mama Snake? 

Joseybug: This is my 3rd term as a Big Snake for the Morelia Virdis and I’ve loved all of my terms! 

TCI: I can surely see that. Wow, a Mama Snake for three terms - May I ask, how long have you been in the house cup and what kind of crafting do you do? 

Joseybug: This is my 7th term in the Cup, all have been in the Noble House of Slytherin. I’m a knitter, crocheter, spindle-spinner, and basic Kool-aid dyer. And, can I mention I’m also one of the Quidditch Coaches and I encourage everyone to participate in my favorite extracurricular activity.

TCI :  || Takes a sip of her beverage, and grins. De-licious!! || Wow, a lady of many talents! I see having stalked your projects before sitting down here, you've been a busy crafter. Any chance you can you tell us, what was your favorite project from last term? 

Joseybug: Hands down, My alpaca-merino-silk spinning. 

TCI: Ohhhh - that sounds almost as yummy as this drink! 

Joseybug: ::giggles:: It is! And can I add in - its also been thanks to the cup that I really learned how to spin.  AND, can I also add - you house cuppers are awesome - especially when it comes to making me wanna learn. You can't believe all the fun I've had Kool Aid dying thanks to the cup!!!

TCI : That is so awesome!! But now, its time to get down to the niddy-griddy.... why did you become a member of Snake Staff and what's been your proudest moment of enabling as a Snake? 

Joseybug: Well, first - I wanted to help out and join in the fun. And second- Anytime I can get more people playing quidditch!  

TCI: And now - the toughest question of the night... trapped on an island with only one yarn to craft with - what would it be? 

Joseybug: Malabrigo. 

TCI : Here! Here! || TCI raise her glass || You make a fine drink and have a great taste in yarn! This interview and beverage have been a pleasure.  Could you please do me a favor, well, two really - first - promise you'll share this recipe with me and second- can you please leave us with a few words of wisdom.  :) 

Joseybug: I can do both those things - lets just first wait til you stop recording for the recipe - we do have some under 21 eyes that could be reading.  As for words of wisdom - Quite simply "Craft what you love." 

TCI : I repeat - a fine crafter, great taste in yarn and a wonderful Bartender! Thank you Joseybug!!!

Slytherin Tournament of Hotties!!!

The results from round 1 of the Wildcard division are in!

The silver bar is for the first name listed and the green bar is for the second name listed. The numbers represent the percentage of votes.
We had quite a few runaways this week and two really close matches.  The Bowie fans were out early and took an early lead but once the Adam Levine crowd came out, it was over.  The lone lady in this division, Tina Fey, put up a great fight.  But the Parks and Recreation fans took the match by 2 votes!  There was quite a bit of campaigning for Prince Nuada.  Although it wasn't enough to get him through, I love the idea!  Why not campaign for your hottie?  Every vote counts!

The hotties definitely moving on are; Sexy Kilt Guy, Dave Grohl, Adam Levine, Josh Gates, New Zealand All Blacks, Adam Scott, Aaron Rodgers, and Blake Shelton.

Now that we've completed round 1 in each division, we're on to round 2, starting with the Movie A Division.  This time there will only be 4 match ups per round.  Let's take a look at this week's match ups!

(1) Johnny Depp vs. (9) Robert Downey Jr.
(5) Sean Connrey vs. (13) Karl Urban
(6) Ewan McGregor vs. (14) Cary Grant
(10) Colin Firth vs. (2) Hugh Jackman
