Re: Orphan Black?

Did anyone watch the finale?? All the spoilers below, so if you haven't seen it yet come back when you have! It was a lot more heartwarming than I was expecting. I half thought everyone was going to end up dead. I loved seeing Art and Helena work as a team! I didn't really like Allison's new...

Re: Fan Section: Poetry

I love quidditch, I love the hype
but on the pitch, I just can’t type.
I try to dodge, my fingers glitch.
I type dododge, my teammates twitch.
I think I’m hitting the right keys
but all of it is typoese.
I know you think my typing’s poor -
Just wait until I practice more!

I spent the whole game thinking I was the slytherin player who scored 15 goals. Apparently I was actually the player in the bottom corner who kept running into walls. Whoops. I tried XD

Scenes of Terror at the Quidditch World Cup

Okay, hopefully there won't be (too much) terror, but we are hosting the Quidditch World Cup this year! Once again, Bulgaria and Ireland are facing off, this time for several weeks! Because seeking was so critical in their last showdown, the top Seekers from each side are also having their own tourn...

Seeking Tournament Sign-up

The seeking tournament is making a return for Summer 2017! In past years, the format has been as such: all participants are divided into groups of 4-5. You play each person in your group once, and the top two players in each group advance to a single-elimination tournament. We are planning to do the...

Re: The Princess Bride: Chapters 7 - 8

Final thoughts on Princess Bride! It was kind of exciting how he kept saying what time it was, and had the time counting down on how much time Westly had left. I really loved how everyone had their chance to be a hero. Inigo got to defeat the six-fingered man (""His eyes bulged wide, f...

Re: Film/TV Adaptations

I watched the Princess Bride, after finishing reading it for this month's book club. The full title of the book includes the phrase "the good parts version" and I thought the movie was the good parts version of that! Some of the backstories were cut or shortened, which was fine with me bec...

Re: The Princess Bride: Chapters 2 - 5

In these chapters, I started enjoying the quirkiness of the narrator(s). Chapter 2: I totally agree that the prince is not a pleasant person at all. How horrific just to have this zoo for the purpose of gruesomely killing things! But I have to say, I loved this bit: "Your father is dying."...

Re: The Princess Bride: Introduction & Chapter 1

I have never seen the movie, or at least not all the way through. I tried to watch it once and fell asleep, and they played it in school once and I also fell asleep >_> So I've seen bits and pieces of it, and I know some of the famous lines and such, but I don't actually know what the plot is.

Re: Share your spring moments

We've had really erratic weather, too! But the best spring days for me have been at the park with Sandy :D I think this picture was actually a weirdly warm weekend in February.
