Good Luck and Have Fun!! Let the anagram solving begin! In the second volume of the HP books by JK Rowling, The (#1)Chamber of Secrets, we continue to learn the incredible adventures of Hogwarts student (#2) Hary Potter and his friends (#3) Ron Weasley and (#4) Hermionie Granger. Belonging to the house of (#5) Gryffindor, they attend Defense Against the (#6) Ark Darts taught by Wizarding celebrity (#7) Gilderoy Lockhart, a none-too-bright fellow who cannot even handle pixies! In The (#8)Chamber of secrets, we also meet Dobby a (#9)House Elf for the first time. Determined Dobby seeks to sabotage the return of (#10)Harry Potter to Hogwarts and is pretty persistent but is unsuccessful. After a few weeks at school, the deceased Ravenclaw student who haunts the girls lavatory, also known as (#11) Moaning Myrtle, shows (#12) Harry Potter and (#13) Ron Weasley an old empty diary that dropped through her ghostly form out of thin air! Many nifty things continue to happen for the next several months… we won’t go into all the juicy details right now… however, the ending is prime reading indeed!! (#14)Harry Potter finally kills Tom Riddle’s (a.k.a #15 Voldemort) sneaky diary (which we now know is a #16 Horcrux) and saves the sister of (#17) Ron Weasley, (#18) Ginny Weasley!!! Oh! Of course, we must mention that the thickheaded (#19) Gilderoy Lockhart unintentionally erased his own memory, so he won’t be back for book three, The (#20) Prisoner of Azkaban


There are bugs…the brochure never mentioned BUGS.

So last year I didn’t exactly finish Muggle Relations. Well I passed but I needed at least an E . Which I almost got.  Luckily Professor Burbage (did you know she had a cousin who was killed by Voldemort…?)  Offered to give me a “pending” grade if I took this “laptop” and went back to writing a “blog”.  [It’s worse than learning a foreign language this muggle terminology.  At least most foreign languages sound like bowel complaints. ]  I have been at camp writing a bit here and there and I have come to a few conclusions.  One a laptop is never to be left on your lap as it gets very, very hot. Two I can write all I want but I have to stand on the top of the cabin and face south if I want it to post.  Because owl post would be less complicated. I truly think that Prof. B. is just trying to kill me I really do.

Camp.  Camp, for the uninitiated, is a cabin in the woods, with nature.  Nature is bugs.  Oh, people will tell you that it’s lakes, trees, plants and animals but in reality…every one of these things leads. to .bugs.  Lakes breed musquitos, trees breed grubs and catipillars, dead trees beetles and worms, animals have fleas or ticks and flowers make bees.  Oh look a butterfly….wait no that’s a moth trying to eat my yarn. Nature is just so dirty and unhygienic. Things out here just randomly poop.  Anywhere they want just ” hmm. i feel like pooping” then BAM poop. AND NO ONE CLEANS IT UP.  A big huge counrty side complete with poop.  It’s digusting.  I’m  a Hogwarts student, get me out of here!

Here I am at Camp Lejune.

June 16, 2009

So I am banished to “camp”.  Like blog is reminiscent of indigestion, camp is uncomfortably associated with polyester mesh shirts.  “Camp” = orange stretch pants with purple leg warmers.

I am sharing a room with girls from different houses.  It’s like living in a giant social experiment. Any moment now I expect to hear a voice over by David Attenborough. “And the Ravenclaw preferring to keep her territory clean takes exception to the Hufflepuff’s bra being layed out on the table. A confrontation will no doubt ensue after her feathers have been ruffled.”


In a fit of bonding we are playing 3 Truths and A Lie

* I went to a French Immersion primary school

* I watch pro wrestling as it’s a modern day soap opera

* I am afraid of rabbits.

* I tested highly for both Slytherin and Gryffindor.
