Re: 2017-2018 English Premier League

Sadly my team (Blackburn Rovers) is not in the Premiership but a few leagues lower in League One. We're not doing great so far... it's going to be a long season!

Re: HOL Appreciation Month - GOLD SPIRIT AWARD

My goals for this year are:
1. To get more house points than last year (3294)
2. To get 10 Quills
3. To (finally) pass my OWLs so I can take my NEWTs (only one to go but I'd like to do more) and graduate
4. To teach the maximum of 6 classes
5. To keep up with my head student duties

You are welcome to set any number of goals but in order to be eligable for the GOLD SPIRIT AWARD you need to meet the f...

Re: Time around the world (Tell us what time it is and what you’re doing at this very moment)

My time is HOL time so both are currently 8:22pm. I'm currently putting off doing the washing up and cooking some pasta for dinner (we had a very late lunch today). It's been a long day and feels like I should be in bed already!

Re: Seeking Tournament Sign-up

I'm a little scared but I'd like to sign up. My availability is basically rubbish for the Summer so if you can't fit me in that's fine, I understand. I'm unavailable August 3rd until 15th (Wedding and honeymoon) and August 28th until September 3rd (Leakycon!). I do have a whole week and a half in th...

Re: All About Lyrics

I recently had to choose the music that will be playing while I'm signing the marriage register and since the registrars insist on no religious content the lyrics are really important. One song that I've loved for years is by Fyfe Dangerfield called Livewire. It's a beautiful acoustic track played o...

Re: Whose Stone is it Anyway?

For me (as a UK dweller) philosopher doesn’t mean anything mystical . It is just as likely to say ‘Plato’ or ‘Aristotle’ to me as it is to you. As far as I know, it doesn’t have that magical connotation in our wider culture either. As a kid, philosopher was just a grown up word that sounded weighty...

Re: Summer Quidditch League 2017

I usually avoid Quidditch as much as possible but I'd like to have a go at a snitch match if possible. I'm away most of the summer so you might not be able to work around that but I'll keep an eye on this forum for updates.

Ooh I like the idea of themed discussions.

Re: Puff piece

Don't listen to that naughty Badger, you stay nice and snug in the Dungeons... (Play sounds fun though)
