It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these. I did them (almost) every week when on my old blog but took a break from them whenever I started anew. But you know what, dear reader? I missed them. So here we are again. To see the original questions, head over to Melanie’s blog and give them an answer yourself, if you are so inclined. Without further ado, here we go:
Share Your World Meets Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (for an explanation as to why there is a Harry Potter section read, Melanie’s blog)
Harry Potter can speak to snakes. If you were able to have conversations with any one animal, what animal would you like to speak to? What would be the topic of your first conversation? I dunno, cats I guess. I’d want to know if they really hold us in disdain or if they’re as chill as I think they are.
The portraits in Hogwart’s dormitories can talk. If your graduation portrait could speak to people passing it by, what would it tell them? I never graduated. So if there was a portrait of me at my old school, it would probably tell people that I dropped out. I did, however go on to get a Master’s degree — much later in life, so there’s that.
Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger use the Pollyjuice Potion for finding new clues for the happenings at Hogwarts. If you could transform into another being, who would you chose to be? What would you hope to learn? Since the pollyjuice potion is temporary, I guess I’d chose randomly as the need arises, just as those three did. I have no burning need to be anyone or anything but me, really.
There was a flooding in the girl’s bathroom where Moaning Myrtle resides. What has been the most dangerous (or comical) ‘flooding’ where you reside? A few years back, it flooded up to the doorstep of our house in Washington. We were stranded in our house for days. When we moved into this house, we had difficulties with the plumbing and the washing machine flooded the mud room. There was also a back up in Doug’s bathroom that was rather unpleasant. That problem has since been fixed — root growth in the pipes. I’d rather have a flood outside of the house than inside. Thanks much.
Mundane or “Muggle” Questions:
How do you think you’ll die? IF you do think about it? My “joke” answer to this is this:
The first half of that is true though. I want to die peacefully in my sleep. I don’t fear dying, it’s something I came to terms with a long time ago. Everything and everyone dies. Nothing on this Earth is permanent. Hell, even the Earth will be gone someday, swallowed up by the sun or blown to smithereens by a passing asteroid. Who knows? I don’t. That’s why I live in the now and relish the moment.
What’s the best on-line screen name you’ve seen? (Best might mean the oddest.) I’ve seen so many and I don’t really pay attention to them, honestly. Some are really creative, and some you can tell were generated by the computer. Like, welcome to the world, Wendy12212020. You know?
What’s invisible that you wish people could see? What people really think as opposed to what’s coming out of their pie-hole.
If over time you replace parts on a car, at what point does it stop being the same car you bought? How many parts do you need to replace to make it a new car? I’ve had this thought before, and it’s similar to a sports team. Sports teams have new players every year, over the years they have completely different line-ups, but they’re the same team, right? So if one is replacing car parts on an old car, but it’s the same car that they’re driving around every day, it’s functionally the “same” car, just as a sports team is functionally the “same” team even if the players change from year to year. That’s the conclusion I came to anyway. Feel free to disagree.
Not a lot of pictures this time. I’m way tired. But at least I’m back in the game. 🙂
