Yummmmmmm - you know what? It is soooooo awesome to have s'mores here! To cap it all off, my hubby has a fire going in our chimney right now, so I'm going to go have one at home too - double chocolate AND double 'mallow! There's no prohibition about apparating at St. Mungo's is there? I don't wanna miss out either place.

Why, Poppy? Are you upset about the Ogdens? Or upset there was none left for you?

For your information, I happen to like gruel. *nervously fidgets with the secret stashes of salt, pepper, seasoning and hotsauce in one of the pockets of my robe*

Hey! Let's give Poppy a S'more with Lime Jello. Then maybe we won't get into trouble. hehehe.

Don't put Sam too close to the fire. We don't want him to melt or anyone getting any ideas.

Gina, Dora is soooo adorable. And don't worry, I use modern materials for my viola strings.

*struggles in a new straightjacket*

It wasn't me, I swear! I don't even like Snape Iced Tea, why would I have bottles? Can I make a deal? Please? I'll---I'll give you a smooooooore... yum yum!

Okay--here's the deal: you let me free, you get a smore, and we'll make sure no one--not even the Squid, long may he reign--is stashing Ogdens. *eyes last smore hungrily as it's eaten by a random pimply intern* *runs back to ward*

*relief* That was close! Now, where are those Harry Potter books???...

Psssst! Anyone have any chocolate or smores left?

Aww, I still have this stupid straightjacket? Anyone got a pair of scissors?

Hey speaking of flying bedpans, does anybody know where our Activities Director is? I haven't seen Istari in ages! And my calendar says it's a new moon tonight...

Madam Poppy - I'm afraid I've eaten a Ton-foot Toffee. When I woke up, I found my feet looking like I traded them with Aunt Marge. Anything you could give me?

Good reminder - thanks Denise!

You know, since our s'more roast, my morning doesn't feel complete without a marshmallow. I've been improvising with my toaster oven, but I may have to get a new one. It appears to like S'mores almost as much as I do & has eaten more than I would have liked it to.

But Denise. *enter whiny voice* Butterbeer doesn't taste as good with Snape iced tea.

Where's the guard checking IDs at the door? Oh, this is an all-ages hospital you say? Yet they still think it's ok to hand out jello willy nilly?

Viola, I'm glad to hear about the source of your violin strings. But no matter, my cats have so many charms and wards on them, they'll have way more than the alloted 9 lives.

*contemplative before his toy snake* Do you know what this is, Nagini? It's a potion. I brewed it in my sleep, so I have no idea what it does... I wish to drink it, but it could be poisonous... It could turn me into double-ended newt...

Oh, well, Nagini. Fortune favors the bold, and if I screw up, the meddling little doctors will certainly be by in due time...

*drinks the potion*

. . .The wizard drank the bubbling broth. Suddenly, his innards began writhing around, as if he had just eaten a plate of worms. His robes began a metamorphosis along with his features... His chin grew deeper, his hair began to emit a greasy slime, and his voice morphed into an irritating high pitch. He looked in the mirror before him... The wizard he once knew was gone. In its place, a man with a suit...

*turns to the mirror as if it were a television camera*

Our apologies to those who feel it's in bad taste to advertise for an insane asylum, but...

COME ON DOWN! WE'RE GOING CRAZY!!!!!

That's right! Crazy Joshua is going CRAZY with the prices! I can get you in a straight jacket for $199 down and $199 a month! You heard me, $199 down and $199 a month!

Why am I doing this? Because I'm CRAZY! And so are you! And I want to sell you your first straight jacket! Bad credit? No credit? No problem!

Come on down to Crazy Joshua's! The home of straightjackets for $199 down, and $199 a month!

Viola - Red straightjackets are quite nice - especially the ones (slightly) modified with extra arms & squid buttons & buckles.

(Puts one on a semi-unconscious Josh to demonstrate the lovely features, using two of the extra arms to prop him up against the furniture, one to hold his rubber snake, and one with a spell to slap anyone who comes near to disturb his sleep.)

If anyone in this place deserves a "Squid-Jacket", it's Slytherin Prefect. I just hope he finds the ever-so-convenient inside zipper before he gets wrathful.

Ticker, I have to go with Marè. I look awful in red. It clashes with my viola, but a nice dark green would be good.

Gina, do you by any chance know the french word for squid so that I can avoid it during my transfer?

Has anyone heard anything from Dr. Sam lately? Did anyone ever turn him back into a human after the rubber chicken incident?

I hope to have a squid shirt printed off by then. Heh heh.

Carina, I had to transfigure a regular straightjacket to get your titanium one for the KBR. If it's ever confiscated, you didn't get it from me...

Pink hoodie straightjackets? *shudder* Nope, I leave those for individual projects!

While in the course of cleaning my room this past week (honestly, it's something I haven't done in three years), I actually found a pink hoodie! Though it was hot pink, rather than pastel, but whatever. It was a pink hoodie nonetheless. I only vaguely remember owning it, but I tried it on, with every intention of wearing it to see POA, but two things changed my mind: 1) A sweatshirt? In June? In Louisiana? As if!! 2) It didn't fit. I haven't worn it since I was about eleven or twelve. Darn growing up. Oh well.

Alright, it's time for a party.

Today is my birthday (well, the last fifteen minutes, anyway *shrug*), and since St. Mungo's seems to be rather devoid of doctors and interns to supervise us, I'm throwing a party. Bring your hoodies and your Jello (I can charm the sedatives out of it), I'll provide the party straight-jackets and the Weird Sisters CD (*shh, don't tell the RIAA I downloaded it!*).

For those of you who are still members of JELLO (Jello Eating Leaves Lunatics Oblivious), I can show you this handy little charm for later on, in case you want to protect your fellow patients.

It may not be the 14th anymore where you are, but it still is by me, so Happy Birthday Denise!

For a present, I'm giving you a pretty squid windsock to hang outside your window....

And who threw cake at me????? *Evanesco's all the cake in sight* Much better!

*Walks in the door & immediately gets creamed by cake. Notices the "Happy Birthday Denise - October 13th - 20th" sign.*

Yum! Happy Birthday Denise!

*Picks up the extra bagpipes and plays "The Boys of Blue Hill" only it comes out sounding like "The Girls of Pink Hoodies".*

Gina - I have seriously considered having puppies instead, but the transfiguration is too complicated to perform in labor. Baby has dropped (I think). Hard to tell - people say you can breathe easier, but have to pee more. I have to pee more - but mainly, I have more tummy room & am eating all the time.

*Eats the last bit of cake off the bagpipes*

Man, I love parties with food!

Denise - I hope you like the present I found for you. *Hands over a mini-floating squid with rubber stamps in each tentacle.* The stamps spell out S A V E G O F ! But I should let you know, it still needs a little training in getting them in the right order consistently. Still, I thought of you when I saw it. Enjoy!

*Goes looking for more food...*

Oh! I hope I'm not too late for the birthday party. Happy Birthday Denise!

I'm back from my exchange to Beauxbaton. I'm sssooooo glad to be back at St. Mungo's.

Beauxbaton was a bit of a culture shock and took a while to adjust. On Saturday, the day before I was supposed to leave, someone stole my portkey. I contacted the MoM, but they told me I couldn't get a new one until Tuesday. The Mom was closed on Monday for a holiday. So, I had to spend two more days there until the MoM opened again. By golly, I was the first in line for portkeys, because I did not want to miss the time for my portkey departure.

Luckily, Grandma could stay the extra two days to watch the children.

By the way, the french word for squid is Calamar, and it was on the menu at several of the restaurants that I went to. Of course I did not order it!

Ah, it is so good to be back at St. Mungo's.

Bien venue, Viola. But, what dreadful news about your portkey. Nothing worse than a stolen portkey, except perhaps a stolen wand or wallet.

Glad to hear you had a good time, and managed to stay clear of the Calamar.

Thank you everyone! The party was great--beat the studying for midterms I had to do here in my "sane" life .

*takes mini-squid from Ticker*

*speechless*

Ticker---Thank you! It's like the Giant Squid--only 1/8th the size! I shall call him--Minisquid! He shall grow to float in the breeze as gracefully as my squid windsock, and I shall teach him to spell correctly, and we will go together into the lake to spread our message to the aquatic beings below (I would have voted to be able to do a bubble head charm! So there! ), and WB cannot ignore us!

Ca-...Calimari Nights? *despair at the mere memory* Let us nevermore think of it!

Hello, hello, hello everyone! I was on the EZboard St Mungo's for a while but never really got involved. But I think a person needs a place to go to be crazy sometimes, where they can listen to bagpipes and play around with lime green jello!

So tell me, what do people do round here? (I haven't read much of this thread as it's, like, 1293 posts long!! )

I don't know how to describe what we do here. We just go off on random crazy tangents. It's usually fairly entertaining, so just join in. I think we're due to have a party at some point in the near future. Booyah!

Pssst! Hey, Liz! Part of the St. Mungo's tradition is to, uh, have your own personal straightjacket fitted when you come in. They seem to have gotten cake on them, but with a little Scourgify they'll be good as new...come 'ere real quick, let's get you fitted...

Well Gina, they got my wallet too, I left the wand at home. Thank goodness they didn't get Hubby's though. Since we had seen everything we wanted to see at Beauxbaton, we went to Disneyland (Of course we went on the Pirates of the Carribean ride!) Now that I'm back here at St. Mongo's I have my lovely green straight jacket and my wand disguised as a viola bow.

Abby, shall we play some duets?

I missed the green jello most of all. Can someone pass me some?

Ooooh, oooh, oooh - I'll come as Griselda the Great - she's the only nurse who has the body build to accommodate my proportions.

Wait a minute.... we aren't in charge? That explains why my rubber chicken doesn't work. Dang.

Hey Abby - I learned how to play the Diagon Alley ditty on my penny whistle - wanna accompany me? (the bagpipes are great for accompaniment, hardly ever drown anything else out...)

And Liz - just be careful who you take lime Jello from - especially if we're all dressed up like the staff - could get a little wierd (now that would be something, wouldn't it?)

Speaking of LJ... who was um, hisers moving partner?

And welcome back Viola! Sorry to hear about the portkey. It looks like you've come back with some lovely new, uh, souveniers. (psssst - great job with the bow - wink, wink - your secret is safe with me...) Maybe you could find me a connection to, um, repair (cough, cough) my pennywhistle - (if you catch my drift...)

Hey, Denise S. Whatever you do, don't look for LJ in my viola case. Okay, he's not there. So, just don't bother looking.

Alright Abby are you ready to play? I am.

(Tunes viola, nasty ugly sounds are heard, then voila, beautiful fourths are heard)

Wow, post number 1313, aw too bad it's not Friday. I wonder what JKR would put in post number 1313?

Oh, by the way, while I was waiting for a new portkey, hubby and I went to Disneyland. The first ride we went on was Phantom Manor, the second was, of course, Pirates of the Carribean. I fondly thought of everyone at St. Mungo's.

That reminds me of a joke!

A bus driver is taking a group of senior citizens on a day trip to Atlantic City. During the drive, some of the elderly ladies keep coming up and offering him peanuts. At first he graciously thanks them. But after about an hour of this, he's had enough and asks one of the ladies why they don't want their peanuts.

One of them replies, "Well, I don't really like peanuts. It was just the chocolate I wanted."

Don't worry Penny. I'm 34 and, despite actually getting my license at 18 after a half a dozen driving lessons, I never really learned to drive and haven't gotten behind the wheel as a result.

I suppose it doesn't help that I live in NYC, where driving is more of a contact sport than mode of transport...

Missed that show Pyro. There is a new program we saw (on Friday?) that debunks incorrect stories. They were putting silverware and foil in a microwave but stopped short of putting a poodle in. (Have you heard the story about the lady who tried to dry her poodle in her microwave? Eewww)
They also showed how microwaved water can explode. FYI, you have to use distilled water and put a spoon or teabag in the water. It had something to do with the pure water . Dah...can't remember the rest of the explanation. Anyway, I think it is a regular weekly show, check it out.

I don't know whether to be shocked or laugh! Is it true? Cos if it is then probably the first one. Poor poodle. But if it isn't, then it's funny.

Did any of the British people on here see the episode of Eastenders where the budgie got sucked up the vacuum cleaner cos Jim (the idiot!! ) was cleaning out the bird cage with it!! Almost sounds like the kind of thing poor old Neville would do! Let's just hope Ron never asks him to clear out Pigwidgeon's cage! *shudders*

Liz, he is holding a scythe, I hope I spelled it right. I never could pronounce it though. It was used to harvest wheat back in the 19th Century.

I don't know how everyone survives without a driver's license. I have to drive everywhere. But, Gina, if I lived in NYC I wouldn't drive. Big cities scare me. More than Voldemort does!

The reason that the distilled water explodes is because distilled water doesn't boil...tap water boils because of impurities....the energy has to go somewhere...

Random and way late, but there you go.

Distilled water doesn't boil? Really? That’s very odd.

Liz - did you ever see the film Urban Legends? I they had a scene about a dog in a microwave. I think I could go my whole life without ever seeing THAT again.

So, if distilled water doesn’t boil because it’s pure, then where does the energy go? Can it freeze? I thought all water could be found in 3 states. Solid, liquid, and gas. Granted, I am failing chemistry, so I need this explained to me in very simple terms.

Is anyone here dressing up as a HP character for Halloween?

What did you do with my hair, PyroGrl?

Stay away from Severus. He'll be livid if you touch his silken tresses.

Liz, as for the Snape beverages... You'll have to go back about a 1,000 posts. One day I, er, made some changes to a Snapple bottle and Snape beverages was born. I do believe it is now the official drink of St. Mungo's!

Sev and I are so proud that the product line took off so well. We have several flavours on offer. Someone (Carina?) even placed an order for a significant supply for the OoP party, which thankfully got re-routed to the fallout shelter in time.

Tommie! Where have you been? *in best Mrs. Weasley voice* Yes, we have definitely missed you! It's been how long now? Methinks you've put in an appearance at least once or twice since after OoP came out, but I'm not sure. You haven't really been away for a whole 4-5 months, have you?

Hm... that Snape drink sounds interesting. Can someone get me one??

And I will hopefully be dressing up like Hermione for a party I might be having tomorrow. If my friends are free because I haven't mentioned it to them yet. They haven't been answering the phone.

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Severus and I have been roped into a function at the Malfoy Mansion, unfortunately. Dumbledore says we should try to have a good time. . .

So, I won't be joining the St. Mungo's party tonight. Hope you all have loads of fun!

Whoopie! Happy Halloween everyone! I am our house's official pumpkin. Of course it snowed & should only be about 10 -15 F here tonight, so we probably won't get many trick-or-treaters. Just as well since I don't light up like a Jack-O-Lantern. In the 5 years I've owned this house, we have only had 1 Halloween without snow. I'm getting used to figuring out costumes I can't see under all the winter coats. Kids who do make it to my house get lots of chocolate though. Feel free to come by, ya'll!

Hey Tommie! Good to see ya!

Nice avatar Gina!

Good luck with the popcorn balls tonight Madam Poppy - ooooooh, ouch - been there, done that (only without the touch of class with the HP soundtrack - you are such a genius!)

Liz, I don't remember the last party ever stopping. *Grabs fists full of green jello & tosses it around. Then grabs candy-corns & throws them too, just to keep with the holiday.*

The party at Malfoy Mansion is starting a little later than I thought, because Severus first has to be in the Great Hall with the Hogwarts kids. So I thought I'd briefly pop in again. :hands Snape drinks to everyone:

*enters in homicidal maniac costume (they look just like everyone else)*

I'm here to provide tonight's lovely selection of Halloween music. First off, Halloween classic, "The Monster Mash." This is, of course, because it is hopelessly stuck in my head. Second, the theme from The X-Files. Third, my wicked favourite , "Tubular Bells", which, I assure you, sounds quite odd on the bagpipe. Followed by, the themes from The Munsters as well as The Addams Family. And Halloween just isn't Halloween without "Ghostbusters"!!! Also, I'll play "Bad Moon Rising," "Soul Man," and "Stayin' Alive" because they're on my Halloween music tape. And, as always, suggestions are welcome.

*begins playing opening strains of "The Monster Mash" before anyone can stop the rogue bagpiper of St. Mungo's*

I'll start. *looks for tuba*

Hey, Madame Poppy, let me 'borrow' your wand and triangle for just a moment. I'll make it so you can play more than one note on your triangle. Hehehe

Oh No! Whenever someone gets interrupted it means they were about to say something really important. What was Gina trying to tell Pinky? Hummm, it started with an F. Did she try to say "Whatever you do, don't forget the Alamo?"

I don't know, normally people who have been "taken" either come back with their memories modified, as psycho-staff member or... they just don't come back at all.

Maybe we need a trick to make sure they don't take her too far (like out of sight) How about we put all the jello in the building on the ground before the door? That way it will get real slippery and you can't pass?

Not help poor Pinky by letting the place go up in flames. Not to fear. This isn't really Severus' lab. It's a mock lab made in one of the wings of St. Mungo's. *rubs hands together again*

Well, while you were all off making s'mores and roasting hot dogs and losing feathers, I snuck out of the hospital and apparated to the Ziegfeld Theatre in NYC. Dare I tell you all? I saw Emma Thompson and (sigh, gasp, faint) interacted with the man himself, Alan Rickman tonight. St. Mungo's will have to issue me a sedative tonight, for I doubt I will get any sleep.

I'm dying to see Love Actually. I'm hoping it will give me a good British Boost before PoA comes out. I've been watching The Patriot so many times, my video is wearing out.

I just spend all my waking hours reading Harry Potter, looking up obscure topics for a forum, contemplating fictional character's motives and actions, and thinking of calamari recipes. I'll be going now.

I'm leaving St Mungo's for a bit tomorrow because I have to go see Othello with my college. I'm telling you, the only thing that'll keep me sane is knowing I can come back her afterwards.

What’s wrong with Othello?

*Splashes in with a ... splash* Oh how creative I am... Another print day gone, and over. "Yippee"!!!!! NO MORE THINKING ABOUT THE PAPER FOR .... at least one day! Only 2 more issues this semester!!!!

Gina - My cat likes playing with the water in our leaky faucet. she flings the drips onto the mirror, and sometimes she bends down to see where the water is going, and get water on her head, jerks away, smacks her head on the faucet. The funny thing is, she's done it every day for the past 3 years. (She's 3 1/2)

YAY! Alan Rickman movie night! - Don't forget about the new one. I have pictures of him.... Shhh.. don't tell.

Liz, where are you seeing it? I don't think you're in my area (VA), but my school's doing a trip to see Othello as well; my curiosity is piqued!

_____________________________________

The Great Abbycadabra - Nov 12, 2003 7:33 am (#1458 of 2955)

Liz, Othello isn't so bad. In fact, it's one of the more interesting of Shakespeare's plays. And, I'll let you in on a secret, I've never read it. Don't focus on it so much and the story will come to you in due course. Especially if it's well done and acted. And if it doesn't, there's always Cliffnotes.

*floats around hot tub some more waiting for the Rickman fanatics to get to Galaxy Quest*

_____________________________________

Liz Mann - Nov 12, 2003 5:16 pm (#1459 of 2955)

I'm here! I'm here! Thanks for your positive comments on Othello, everyone, but I didn't go in the end. I managed to get out of it! The trip wasn't compulsory, anyway. I told my teacher that I had a headache and that travelling on the train, especially the underground always gives me a headache anyway, so it'd make it worse. Which is half true because travelling on the train does always give me a headache. Besides, I'm sooooo tired! I probably would have fallen asleep during the performance. Would have been a great way to pass the time, though.

And Denise, I don't know where you are, but I'm in England. The play was on in Greenwich.

Well, St Mungo's is the closest thing to a chat thread we have here and I just HAVE to share.

Years ago, I co-authored a piece of fanfiction with a buddy and this story is up on several fanfiction sites. It was based on a TV show that is now off in syndication on Spike TV.

I got an email today from someone who just read it and loved it. Naturally we thought it was good, our betas agreed and we got really positive response to it but it is still nice when years later, people are STILL reading it and feel strongly enough to comment on it

I think it will turn into a musical fish, Istari. But, if you take it out of the water, it might shrink when the water evaporates, and turn into a piece of wood with rubber bands on it. Unless you use the correct charm, of course.

I have an idea! Let's feed canary creams to all the staff here and sell them to the magical pet store. That should earn us enough for a pizza! We'll tell the pet store staff that the magical talent the canaries have is to randomly turn into a human form -- they just need to keep feeding the canaries some of this special bird food (crumbled up canary creams). We'll be free and can run St. Mungo's on our own! Or at least... I'll be free as soon as I get out of this pink hoodie straightjacket....

I think our discussions focus on food because the majority of us are women. We girls like our food.

I just made Stone Soup with my kindergarteners. It was much better than last years and I think it was due to the cabbage we added. Let's remember to add cabbage to our soup!

The music in the trailer reminds me of the song "This is Halloween" from the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. I was thinking last night "PoA would be a good movie for Danny Elfman to score". Then I realized how that would devastate Abby.

When are we having this Alan Rickman one, anyway? I've got my popcorn ready.

Oh, gosh! Danny Elfman creeps me out! Probably because he does all those Tim Burton movies (except for one of my two favourites Ed Wood), and Tim Burton creeps me out. However, I will admit, that the first time I saw the trailer, my exact thought was, 'Danny?' I have thought of other composers to do HP, and while my first choice for just about everything is John Williams, I could have totally tolerated Danny Elfman. Hey, he did The Simpsons after all. Though, if it weren't John Williams, I'd go with Alan Silvestri. I am though an Alan Silvestri supporter and am horrified with the fact that that man has never got an Oscar. When will those people come to their senses and have me say who wins what?

Anywho, animation-fest! Whoo! We can't forget Shrek!

Shrek 2 is coming out! Leave it to ... the film companies to not let a good thing just be..

Anyone remember "Aladdin 2", or "Beauty and the Beast 2"? I don't, but I know they exist.

I didn't mind Aladdin 2. And I haven't seen all of the trailer of Shrek 2 cos my computer won't play it properly but what I have seen looks really cool! The knight Fiona had been waiting for turns up at the castle and finds she's on her honeymoon. He is not happy!

Anyway, what Alan Rickman film are we watching first?

Hey, guess what? Alan in the 1978 production of Romeo & Juilet has become available on DVD! (He plays Tybalt and he's young and SKINNY). I hope they take galleons. I'm going to order it today.

I borrowed it last week - probably maxed it out on a 16-hour labor followed by a cesarean section (complete with muggle stitches and a fabulous thing called an epidural) - not to mention a 4-day stay in Neonatal ICU for the most beautiful little girl I've ever seen. We're home now and doing wonderfully.

She weighed 8 lbs. 7 oz, 20 inches long born 11/11 @ 6:41 pm.

The C-section turned out to be a good thing - her umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck twice (I knew she was being active in there) and she was face up which would have been a slower (& more painful were it not for the epidural) birth.

As soon as I can get my scanner to work & the photos developed I'll update my avatar, but she has a picture on the hospital web site if you want to see her. http://www.rcrh.org/Baby/BabyView.asp?BabyID=1118

Hope you've saved me some extra any-flavor-but-lime jello. It's good to be back. Come visit me in the Developing Very Young Potterholics Ward.

CONGRATULATIONS

Beschuit met muisjes (Rusk with mice)

Traditional Dutch treat to celebrate the birth of a baby: rusks with candy-coated aniseed. "Muisjes" come in pink-and-white (for a baby girl) and blue-and-white (for a baby boy). So, if you are offered beschuit met muisjes, you know that congratulations are in order

I don't think voting online costs anything but best to check first. I didn't see anything that mentioned a cost. You have to be in Britain and you can only vote once. They apparently have ways of finding out if someone's voted more than once.

That's okay. The only reason I eat pumpkin pie is to smother it with whipped cream. *squirts Redi-whip in her mouth*

I made our pumpkin pie last night and normally I smother it in whipped cream as well *swipes the Redi-Whip can away from Carina and runs it under hot water* The other half of NoVeil4Me saw that minimarshmallows melted on top looked good so we may try that. I also altered my standard recipe slightly to try something that...Madam L, Susurro or popkin...suggested....putting in some cream cheese. Yummmm! I also have a caramel apple pie.

Who brought the treacle toffee??

Pinky, Thank you ever so much for getting my viola back to it's correct size!!!!

Do you think if I lick the rest of the pumpkin pie off of my viola that it might shrink my waistline back to where it was before Thanksgiving? I ate way too much.

It's worth trying, Viola! And hey - we're all here to help each other out. I personally was stuck as a canary for several days after Halloween, so I understand how the holidays can be difficult for us here at St. Mungo's.

_____________________________________

Viola Intonada - Dec 2, 2003 9:52 pm (#1588 of 2955)

I think someone must have placed an engorgement charm on my waistline, because it definitely seems to have gotten larger over the Thanksgiving holidays. Maybe it was just the entire casserole dish of dressing, pot of mashed potatoes and the pecan pie. Nah! Couldn't have been.

Thanksgiving dinner is my favorite meal of the year, except I'm not a big turkey fan, but I do love all of the things you make from the byproducts, such as dressing and gravy.

* Licks some pumpkin pie off of viola*

Hum, I don't think it shrunk my waistline any. Does anything look smaller to you?

Pinky, did your canary experience turn you off eating turkey?

_____________________________________

Pinky - Dec 3, 2003 3:49 am (#1591 of 2955)

Well, I did have an allergic reaction to something after Thanksgiving dinner. We're still trying to figure out what it was. Perhaps there was a Weasley Wheeze hidden in the gravy? But I don't think I'll ever stop eating canary creams. Have one?

_____________________________________

Carina - Dec 3, 2003 5:26 am (#1592 of 2955)

Viola, it wasn't an engorgement charm on your waistline, it was a shrinking charm on your clothes. I hate it when that happens...

Hey congratulations Abby! Post 1600 - wow!

Mungo? What were his parents thinking?

Viola, if the shrinking potion works, let me know. They say it takes 9 months up & 9 months down, but isn't there a quicker-faster-cheaper way? Am I not American? Pass the Canary Creams & Pumpkin pie please.

*tosses a canary cream to Ticker* Hey Ticker, make sure your new little one doesn't lick these - I'm not sure if she would turn into a baby canary, or into an egg.

_____________________________________

Gina R Snape - Dec 9, 2003 12:48 am (#1603 of 2955)

Actually, I think if Ticker had eaten it before the baby was born, she would have passed an egg instead of going into labour.

How is the little chick-a-dee doing, anyway?

This is definitely not a fems only party! To be quite honest, I'm not always sure who is female and who is male unless I've gotten to know the poster a little better. I've been mistaken for a guy (and occasionally a canary), but I'm a girl. The only requirement for residency here at St. Mungo's is lunacy.

Blast - Dec 9, 2003 4:57 am (#1609 of 2955)

The nearest thing to being a healer is that I er, have dissected a few things over the years. My NEWTs were in astrology, Muggle studies, charms, transfiguration, and care of magical creatures. Snape did not accept me into his NEWT potion class. Something about an experimental potion. He did not look the same with a green mohawk. But I got even a little while ago, what a difference one little letter in a potion can make.

_____________________________________

Istari Jones - Dec 9, 2003 12:44 pm (#1610 of 2955)

Hello, 'Newt! Welcome aboard! (Hands 'Newt a flying bedpan). Yeah, green's not quite Snape's color, even though he is head of Gryffindor House. Shocking orange would have been better! Anyway, any guy that walks around with Honeydukes Chocolate is a vital addition to our little St. Mungo's ward (you are going to share that chocolate, aren't you?) I'm interested in which letter of which potion was changed....

Looks like you all were busy here last night, sorry I missed it!

_____________________________________

Viola Intonada - Dec 9, 2003 7:00 pm (#1611 of 2955)

Blast end newt, welcome to St. Mungo's. Which color would you prefer for your straight jacket? Anyone bearing chocolate is most welcome!

I think purple would have been more Snape's color. But I would have loved to see the green!

Ticker, the shrinking potion worked great. I highly recommend it, but I would definitely keep it out of baby's reach. (I don't want to discourage you, but it took me three years to get my figure back after my second, (and last) child.)

Oh, my golly! Just got done re-reading my post from this morning, and my sincerest apologies to Gina and her dear Sevvie! I'm such a Dunderhead! Of course Snape's head of Slytherin house! And yes, of course I'm mad! That's why I'm here at St. Mungo's. Now if you said "Have you gone STUPID, Istari?!?" I would have had to say well, duhh, Gina, yes! Oh, my . . . I haven't written something that stupid in print ... well,... not since we were writing about ARs attributes and got Kippendoed by Kip several months ago!

Again, I'm sorry, Professor Snape and Gina...will you forgive me?

_____________________________________

Gina R Snape - Dec 10, 2003 12:46 am (#1616 of 2955)

I've talked it over with Severus and he says he'll allow you to plead insanity. It is, he says, your only defense.

I don't mind if he wears black the rest of his life. But he does own a few others. He's worn a dark green one to Quidditch matches. But I do think he'll be quite dashing in purple. It will compliment his jet black hair, eyes and appealingly pallid complexion.

Oh, and for the holidays we are marketing a line of eggnog! With or without red currant rum (Fudge's favourite, he's ordered 3 cases already).

Istari Jones - Dec 10, 2003 3:35 am (#1617 of 2955)

Plead insanity? Ohh, gee whiz! That'll be easy!

Speaking of colors, let's don't discount white! ...In years past I've seen the dear Professor in a sparkling white Elvis outfit, complete with a white and silver sequined robe that had all the ladies "all shook up", especially when he did his Elvis Presley impersonation. And I believe you yourself had a nice picture of him in John Travolta's white Saturday Night Fever leisure suit, Gina!

My personal favorites continue to be his ballroom dancing dresses Wink

Lol, Blast! Ah, a yellow straight jacket, such a happy color.

Liz, the sub ended up being a giant balloon and I think it got popped during one of our moves.

Istari, is it possible that it was your inner seer speaking (typing) when you said Snape was the head of Gryffindor? Were there ever any seers in your family? Didn't I hear something about JKR saying in an interview that someone will be changing houses in one of the upcoming books? Hum....

Gina R Snape - Dec 10, 2003 6:21 pm (#1620 of 2955)

Alas, Istari, that was the now long-lost Diagon Nilly who had Severus in the Saturday Night Fever suit. And I assure you, that was not voluntary. It was pure blackmail.

Severus in white. Oh please oh please oh please let him not have heard that! There will be no peace at the dinner table this evening. Oh the grousing. It'll be worse than after that time Dumbledore made him open the Christmas cracker and the stuffed vulture hat came out.

Istari Jones - Dec 11, 2003 1:28 am (#1622 of 2955)

Gee, Viola, there was a seer in the family, of a sort. Uncle Myopia was a peeping tom. He was a little dimwitted, also. Turns out he thought the windows he was looking through were muggle TVs. It wasn't until he got new glasses that he realized what he had been doing. Boy, was he ever embarrassed.

Yeah, where is D'nilly? Did she leave St. Mungo's forever? Please tell me she wasn't cured! She added so much to our little family. I hope she comes back soon!

Gina! Awww, come on now! He was quite the Elvis impersonator - quite dazzling in that white cape and all. But, alas, earwax! I guess it is but a piece of his past he wants to remain hidden. How churlish of me to bring up such a painful memory for him! Please forgive me. It shall never be mentioned again. (unless, of course, I'm feeling particularly mischievous!)

Hey I hear that the St. Mungo's staff Christmas party is this Saturday night. Rumors are that they want to give us sleeping potions to keep us quiet. Jokes on them though, I intercepted the owl booking the entertainment, and booked Weird Al Yakovic instead. He's a squib, BTW. I hope they like polkas.

Gina R Snape - Dec 11, 2003 4:20 am (#1624 of 2955)

Weird Al Yankovic? Thanks, but I think I'd rather take the sleeping draught.

Istari, we all have things from our pasts better left there. I once did an online sorting hat quiz and was happy to be randomly sorted into Gryffindor. Little did I know at the time...

Lenka (and Liz too, I think), I cannot send you the link for my stories. They are not appropriate for someone of your age.

I do, however, plan on writing something post-able for this site at some point in the future.

I hope I don't get kippendoe'd for this!

all you did was make Liz and Lenka extremely curious... *insert evil grin here*

But I think they can handle it! Ladies don't tell me you already read all of this site's stories yet. For that matter is there any-one who has been able to read all the stories? How much have the "locals" been able of reading of this vast amount of material?

*insert very smug grin* I have read all of the stories on this site. At one point or another, I have read (or scanned when in a pinch) every single post on this entire forum. I can't say that about the main forum - I have almost 9,000 unread posts over there. But, I have managed to stay current over here, and I plan to keep it that way. *is dragged away to the "I read way too much Harry Potter FanFiction" ward*

Oh, Pinky. Make room in the "I read way too much Harry Potter fanfiction" ward. I'll just place a revolving door between it and the Snape ward. Especially since I almost exclusively read Snape fanfiction. Hmmm, there must be a way to combine the two.

Thanks for the back-up Marè. I hadn't thought I'd done anything seriously wrong. Living with the Potions Master, one learns the value of holding your tongue. Today, for instance, it is firmly planted in cheek.

Some more S'nog perhaps?

On another note: I am quit in shock *GASP* my housemates, ate....dare I say it? Calamari! Last night. My continuing threats about how they were dooming the entire world by taking away such a powerful person and how they would never be welcome in St. Mungo's did not seem to bother them at all!

And no Pinky, I didn't eat calamari, I'm one of these goofy persons who have this thing about not eating animals.

O well, I ate some when I was little. Heheheh, my parents gave some calamari-rings (the ones with dough around it and baked in oil) to my brother and me. We liked it a lot. Then my father insisted on telling us what it was that we were eating, I remember that my mother told him not too, and my father thought he could, because we had just said we liked it a lot!

Needless to say, half a minute later we decided it was yuckie, absolutely horrible and we were not going to eat anymore ever again! And you know what, I think we kept our word.

Hmmm maybe I should feed my brother some, see how he likes it... *insert evil grin once more*

Hey, Abby, play “Something Wicked This Way Comes!”

By the way, that smilie I just posted, is it meant to be looking delighted or sticking it's tongue out? Cos I always thought it was the first one but now that I've got my new monitor it looks like the second.

_____________________________________

Gina R Snape - Dec 16, 2003 4:14 pm (#1672 of 2955)

Hey, guys. I had the weirdest dream last night.

I dreamt I was attending a muggle University and Severus Snape was a professor there in the science department. I was his lab assistant or something, and a student who had a crush on him. I stopped in all the time and offered to help out in the lab and I was the only student he was nice to.

So, in my dream I stopped by his office to say hello and see if he needed help skinning shrivelfigs or something, and the Dean of the School was sitting at his desk. I asked her what happened and she said his employment was terminated because of all the strange things in his office. They suspected he'd lost his mind because he thought he was practicing witchcraft and potions making instead of science. (And he wore his black robes at the muggle University).

I went to his refrigerator, because I knew there were some very important samples of things in there and everything was cleaned out. And the Dean came up to me and said "There were so many disgusting things in there, we will have to triple disinfect it before I can keep my lunch in it." I sat down at a folding chair at a work table and started to cry. I cried and cried and the Dean could not understand why I was so upset that Snape was gone. But then I discovered a phial of something on one of the shelves and figured out that he'd left it for me so I could track him down and I knew he would be ok.

Weird dream, huh? I think it's come from all the talk about detention with Snape.

Gina lay off the snog before going to bed. That was a real nightmare. Imagine Snape teaching at a muggle university, gives me the creeps. Not Snape, the Muggle University. Probably N.Y.U. How's the Snoat coming along? Snog made with some of Aberforth's magical goat milk. Chocolate all around!! *plays Greensleaves on the Jingle Cats.* The only other song they know is, “I like tuna , I like liver, Meow Mix Meow Mix please deliver.”

Hey, look what I've found...*rummages through an old broom closet* "Stubby Boardman and the Hobgoblins Greatest Hits" *Reads back of album cover* "Stubby and the Hobgoblins rock like an exploding cauldron with their latest, greatest hits. Stubby, renowned for his skills on the magical bagpipes, gets everyone rocking worse than a Tarantellegra spell with his ear splitting chords."

And look! Here's an old Daily Prophet article someone cut out: "Stubby Boardman stated in a news conference today he's quitting the music business. He was hit in the ear with a turnip at his last concert which led to the decision to end his music career."

Pleiades Smythe, a former fan of the group and witness to the incident reports: It was awful! Everytime he played the bagpipes our hair began to curl and our noses began bleed! He just wouldn't stop! We began throwing turnips because we couldn't find any bricks. Someone had to stop him! It was horrible."

So, Abby..."Something Wicked this Way Comes"......do you mean.....you and your bagpipes? *Grins mischievously*

Awww, come on guys.... At any rate, I didn't write it, I just read it...It was in the Prophet so it must be true!

Sorry, Abby, I am just teasing you:] I actually like both bagpipe music and your music selections. I played several instruments myself. My first instrument was the clarinet, but now I play them all nearly as badly as I play the piano. Believe me, that's pretty bad........

_____________________________________

Blast - Dec 17, 2003 8:50 pm (#1682 of 2955)

Never mind, Abbey, you play anything your little heart desires. How about some Eric Clapton. BTW he's half Wizard, half Muggle. Snog with Olde Ogden's Firewhisky, for everyone.

_____________________________________

Pinky - Dec 18, 2003 12:34 am (#1683 of 2955)

Hey Abby, can you teach me to play the bagpipes? I've always wanted to learn, but have never had the opportunity. Maybe I'm the wicked thing coming this way as I practice the bagpipes. *evil grin*

_____________________________________

The Great Abbycadabra - Dec 18, 2003 4:17 am (#1684 of 2955)

Aye, I thought Istari was off to pick a fight. But, yes, that is very unfortunate for poor Stubby. I feel for you, man.

And, not to worry, Blast. People's dislike of my music never stopped me before. What'd be the point if I didn't annoy some people along the way? I don't believe I've ever played any Eric Clapton on bagpipe before. Anything of his in particular?

It's very simple to play bagpipe, Pinky. You just need a simple bagpipe playing spell. Here, let me get my copy of Gilderoy Lockhart's Guide to Magical Melodies. The proper spell should be in there somewhere.

_____________________________________

Oh, Abby, I wasn't out to pick a fight. Maybe it was all that S'nog I drank. Like I said some place, I do like bagpipe music. Say, can you play any Village people songs? I know sounds crazy, but I just don't think you've really heard "Macho Man" until you've heard it on the bagpipes.....

_____________________________________

The Great Abbycadabra - Dec 18, 2003 5:40 am (#1687 of 2955)

Ah, Istari. I suppose I forgive you. Macho Man! I've got to try that. And I'm ignoring Gina's comment.

I wouldn't trust a book by Lockhart if I were you, Abby.

Not that I don't like bagpipes but since they're really loud I think I'll get some of those earmuffs Professor Sprout uses when tending the Mandrakes for when you're practicing Pinky, or I won't be able to read my Harry Potter books properly!

Madam Pince - Dec 18, 2003 11:14 pm (#1690 of 2955)

Hi everyone! **comes into room, irritably shaking a bedpan off her left foot**

I seem to have been lost in a maze of corridors for a few weeks. I can't really remember where I was, either, except I KNOW I was looking for the Neonatal Ward. And so I see that Ticker and family get congratulations! Your little one is so sweet! And all that dark hair! She could be related to the Potters! Congrats and enjoy this special little tax deduction! Hope you're getting lots of rest!

Gina, your post about your dream reminded me of mine which I meant to tell you about if I ever saw you in chat, which I haven't, so... I dreamed I went to a hotel for a convention or something, and there was a movie set going on, and Alan Rickman was there. (This was right after you met him at the premier so I'm sure that's why I dreamed it.) Anyway, I was jostled by the crowd so that I was up close to the velvet rope, and when he came by I shook his hand and then leaned forward and gave him a peck on the cheek and told him "That's from a friend of mine -- she's your biggest fan and would never forgive me if I didn't give you a little kiss." (Meaning you, of course.) And, of all things, if he didn't get all mean and nasty and act just like Uncle Vernon -- said "As IF I'd want a kiss from YOU!" and walked away rolling his eyes. I was so hurt and embarrassed. When I woke up I was STILL hurt and embarrassed. It's the oddest thing, but I can't seem to like Alan Rickman as much anymore (which I know is totally unfair because it was just a silly dream, for goodness sake.) So anyway.... But I did try to convey your admiration to him, although I apparently failed miserably....

Where IS that S'nog? I think I need some comfort....*sniff*

Madam Pince! I am honoured!!! Truly and honestly. Thank you for sharing that.

I can tell you from others' reactions that Mr. Rickman is not that rude and insensitive in person. Perhaps that will help you overcome your feelings a bit. I have read many, many, accounts of his interactions with fans and he has never been anything but charming and gracious and warm. Except once when some bloody idiot asked him to autograph something from Professor Snape, and then his inner Snape came out. And honestly, can you blame him for it?!

So, anyway, thank you so much for thinking of me--even whilst unconscious!

Here is a complimentary S'nog for you.

Istari Jones - Dec 19, 2003 4:08 am (#1693 of 2955)

Awwww, Madame Pince, what a nightmare! Maybe in your dream he really wasn't AR, but a nasty little cretin who had drunk some Polyjuice Potion.

_____________________________________

Blast - Dec 19, 2003 5:04 am (#1694 of 2955)

Yeah maybe it was a certain actor from the X-Files who drank the Polyjuice potion. I can't even seem to recall his name now. Guess he had his three minutes of fame. I hear that some professional athletes act like that too. Just like Lockhart said “fame is fickle, Harry.” Too bad all celebrities don't take a page out of Lockhart’s book. Treat them all with respect and you will be loved eternally. BTW let's strike up the band. Abby how about Greenesleaves? It is a beautiful song and was written by someone called Harry! Shortbreads all around tonight. They are all shaped like the Hogwarts express engine.

Well, Liz, seeing as my Lockhart book is signed by the man himself, I'm rather partial to it. Besides, I am in St. Mungo's after all. And thanks for the compliment, Istari.

Oooh, how awful, Madam Pince. I'd say the polyjuice potion is the best explanation for that behaviour on Mr. Rickman's part.

Okay, then. We have a song. Who is with me?

It's funny - - there is a dairy called Hewlits that specializes in goat milk products, they have quite a large following because some people are allergic or have bad reaction to cow's milk. They make goat's milk cheese, ice cream, butter, and I think egg nog. If we get up to the Dairy over the holidays, I think I'll get some. A little magic, and you never know.

I'm not sure if Snog is cat-friendly, actually. I know milk can make a kitty congested. I guess you will just have to wait and see. My Fabergé and Nymphadora have not shown any interest. Could it be your kitty is part kneazle?

I hear bowtruckles take a liking to the soy variety. We've had to be careful when bringing some along on picnics.

Severus looks so cute carrying his packed picnic basket and his black and green checkerprint picnic blanket. You'd never guess to see the man that he's fond of sitting under the open sky and munching on fresh bread and a good Wensleydale and some sliced Italian hard sausage.

If any cat is part Kneazle this one is. He is Mr. personality, he eats with his paw, knows how to suck up, gets into the fridge and helps himself, he can open the door to let himself out, he parties with raccoons and skunks, brings home other cats and animals, I really think that he is reincarnated from a former cat we had. They are so close in personality, just different fur. BTW everybody has a safe and very Happy Christmas.

When I was a young lad we had a family that moved to the corner of our street. They were newly arrived from Northern Ireland. There were two boys around my age one the same, one a little younger. They said that their father was a musician and that his band had a song coming out and that it was going to be a big hit. Well some of the neighbourhood kids laughed and scoffed them. The boys were a bit upset about this and did not hang around as much. Well the song was “The Unicorn” and the group was the Irish Rovers. They moved away and a friendship that could-have-been, left too. So Abbey I have a request, Could you play “Grandma Got Runover By a Reindeer?” Christmas is a tight one this year. I had to start a new job because of downsizing at a lot less money, my wife hurt her back at work and got shafted. Instead of giving her a new position, they just stopped scheduling her. She also started a new job but at a lot less money and hours. The kids are still having Christmas, but not like other years. My fourteen year old Katie has a friend whose parents were downsized too, unfortunately they are both out of work. They had to tell their children that there would be nothing this year. Well my kids took this to heart and offered to sacrifice what they would be receiving to give to these two girls. To make matters short we squeezed the budget and came up with gifts for the whole family. The people were very grateful and my children realized what the spirit of Christmas is. Even though it will be a scaled back Christmas, not as much under the tree for the kids, it will be the best one ever. Bless everyone this Holiday for it is not all about gifts or possessions, but about our fellow human beings and how we treat them.

And Merry Christmas to everyone at St. Mungo's and beyond!

Gina R Snape - Dec 26, 2003 7:50 am (#1734 of 2955)

Good heavens, Blast! You don't want a stomach shrinking potion!!! Your stomach can barely fit all of what you've stuffed into it already. That potion would do the opposite of what you desired.

No, what you want is a digestive biscuit. Not the kind you can get at Sainsbury's, but wizarding digestive biscuits. One of those and your gastronomic woes will be no more. Mind, it only works long enough for you to digest the meal you've just eaten. Were you to try and stuff yourself again, feeling relieved, the consequences would be enough to put you in St. Mungo's. Oh, wait, you already are in St. Mungo's. Another ward, but still...

Happy Holidays, everyone! I've been gone for about a week so it's been great to come back and see the holidays treated everyone well. In addition to all the S'nog that is flowing, might I offer my Candy Cane cookies? They are made from white and red cookie dough that is twisted to look like a candy cane and flavored with peppermint extract. It's my Grandma's recipe, v.v. good!

Gina, the Snog was a big hit this year. Severus deserves kudos for his recipe. Although next year maybe he could try to make some Sneep.

What, may I ask, is Sneep? We are always happy to hear new ideas.

Blast - Dec 28, 2003 9:51 pm (#1740 of 2955)

Sneep is a cheese made from sheep's milk. It's very nice on crackers. (Only kidding Gina.) What's going on for New Years in the ward? I read that Saturn will be very bright and overhead in the sky New Year’s Eve. I wonder what Trelawney would think about that.

This place should be busy on New Year’s Day, all those people looking for hangover potions. Good thing that I don't drink I'm goofy enough. Although watching people become intoxicated can be quite interesting and funny. Some are even Werewolfe-like in their transformation.

_____________________________________

Gina R Snape - Dec 29, 2003 3:31 am (#1745 of 2955)

Severus is very strict on the hangover potion topic. Our friends beg every year and every year he says no. He feels if someone is foolish enough to overindulge, they should face the consequences. But I've seen him sneak a nip or two on occasion after a night out.

_____________________________________

Wow, you guys have been busy! I've missed a lot in the last month. My hours have been cut back from 40 to 15, so I can now do the important things in life like cook meals, clean the house, and come here to visit. I don't mind switching to part-time work, my feet were killing me.

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas holiday. I'll be here on New Year's Eve after 10:00 Pacific time with a potion recipe guaranteed to keep you sober! You might want to make sure you're cauldron is clean and ready to use.

  • To not procrastinate
  • To not fall behind in my laundry
  • To exercise more
  • To finish my existing fanfics and write the ones for the ideas I have
  • To continue having a good relationship with my husband Severus!

Whump, whump, whump, wham!

OK everyone, my advice for the New Year is definitely avoid the Wonder-wrap & Spell-o-tape combination. I had all my Christmas gifts wrapped, then realized I couldn't find the baby. Fortunately, the box crying in the corner sounded off before I started taking drastic measures.

An unsuspected side effect of asking the Wonder-wrap to re-wrap is that it doesn't seem to differentiate between the original object and anything else touching it (which is probably how the baby got wrapped in the first place). I promptly found myself wrapped up with the baby & the purple socks I got for my brother. Needless to say, wonder-wrap is a superb containment system (should anyone ever have the need).

Just wanted to apologize for my long absence & let you know Aria & I have had a delightful holiday season (above fiasco excepted).

Happy New Year to all! By the way, love the S'nog, the Christmas carols, the dreams & the other crazy stuff ya'll have come up with lately. (Istari, glad you didn't wait ‘til spring to clean your closet - what a classic!)

Talk to you next year when they let me out of the Why-do-I-have-such-a-huge-family Ward.

(Although I did just see "Quigley Down Under" and I must say I don't feel too charitable towards anyone shooting at someone as fetching as Tom Selleck!)

Anyway...Party on! Sparkling Snape-le?

Severus and I are so glad you've all been enjoying our line of beverages. We do have a limited supply of Snapagne (pronounced Snape-anya). The cork automatically pops at midnight. It is magically synched with the world clock and can sense which time zone you are in.

We missed you a lot, and you also, Ticker! Glad to see you found your baby. That Wonder-wrap stuff is tricky. You should see how my cats get tangled up in it.

Happy New Year, all! I will be at my brother in law's physically, but my heart will be here also with you. Is Snapagne the Snape version of champagne? If so, then here's a toast: To the most creative, fun, and wonderful family ever: to all of you here at St. Mungo's. May you be blessed with a safe, healthy, and prosperous New Year! Cheers!!!

We went to pick up my daughter and her friend today. As we were in need of some breadcrumbs, we stopped at a store to buy some. In front of the store was a girl waiting for the bus. She was wearing a cloak and had a big trunk. Well the bus was a big purple one. If she went to Hogwarts she was definitely a Slytherin. The whole scene was pretty funny. I have also have taken this bus and they have a few Ernie's driving. Life imitating art, you gotta love it. Ran into Mundungus today, sends his New Year’s greeting to everybody and if anybody's interested, he has a few enchanted bed bans to move.

All I know is that on the 30th some-one said: "Let's go to Brussells" and that we did...) it's good to be back with the HP lunatics! And I'll take a black-eyed pea Ticker, if I knew what it was.. Any-one got a picture?

They are a kind of curving white beans with a little black spot at the tip, Mare. I don't think you find them in the Netherlands, or in Brussells, either.

Thanks for the spoonful, Ticker. They were yummy. Although, Severus kind of sniffed at them derisively once or twice before I pinched his nose and forced him to eat.

Harry New Year everyone! 2003 wasn't so great, after all we didn't get a new Harry Potter film during it, so here is to 2004 and "The Prisoner of Azkaban."

Btw, my hubby and I went to see the "Return of the King" on Dec. 23. I finally got to see the PoA trailer and now understand why everyone was singing "Something Wicked this Way Comes." Well, an hour into the movie, my Mother-in-Law came into the theater to get us, our oldest daughter had fallen and hit her head on the kitchen counter, she needed three stitches. Hubby and I went back to see the late show of "Return of the King" (The manager let us in so we didn't have to pay again!) I was so disappointed when they didn't show the PoA trailer again!!!! I loved the 1st LotR movie, was disappointed with the story changes of the 2nd and the same for the 3rd. I thought they paid more attention to the "artiness" of the film than the story. I heard a movie reviewer say that he loves "PoA" because it is more artistic than the first two HP movies. I am really worried now!

Black-eyed peas for good luck? I've never heard of that. In our area we eat pork and sauerkraut. Anyway, Ticker, I'll take some black-eyed peas also, you can never have enough good luck! And I agree, that is a beautiful baby!

Oh, by the way...can anyone use a dozen eggs? It appears I have an over-abundance of them. I don't mind being a chicken, but I really am getting tired of earthworms...man, what a way to begin the New Year!

Interesting pix, Gina, but somehow I never pictured Snape with such a ...svelte... body figure. I suppose he just doesn't want his body-builder pictures on surface on the internet worldwide! Smile

Thanks, Istari. Hadn't you noticed Severus likes to wear his clothing cinched at the waist? His frock coat does the same thing.

Obviously, you haven't seen the Snape angel picture. Alas, I cannot post it here.

Oh, and I'd no idea you had become a chicken. I must have missed that. Here, try this, it might work.

The only side effect is you may wind up with a temporary craving for grain cereal for a week or two. But I think you could put up with that!

The thing is, Viola, film-makers are more interested in making a good film than a good adaptation of the book they're working on. And the reason is that people like a film with loads of excitement and special effects. Possibly the reason Peter Jackson extended the battle scenes. The fans of the books won't be happy but those who haven't read it will be. I know a lot of people who prefer the second film to the first because it had more action in it. People from college and critics. So the book will be sacrificed to make room for people too lazy to go and read the book first.

Luckily, the same was not done to the first two Potter films. The action scenes were not lengthened, storylines weren't added and most of it came directly from the book (true a few little details were changed or added but nothing major like the Aragorn/Arwen storyline). So hopefully future directors won't feel the need to do a Peter Jackson. If PoA is artistic then great! So long as it's faithful to the book, too. Because, quite frankly I don't see why the film can't be appealing to both people who have read the book and people who haven't.

Also, Viola, when you said 2003 wasn't so great, after all we didn't get a new Potter film, you must have forgotten the fifth book! I think 2003 was great because we've been waiting for that for ages! It seems we're to get one Harry Potter thing per year.

1997 - book 1

1998 - book 2

1999 - book 3

2000 - book 4

2001 - film 1

2002 - film 2

2003 - book 5

2004 - film 3

Oh, and Gina, that pic is funny! Lol!

Just a spoonful of sugar helps the potion go down, the potion go down, the potion go down. Well Mary Poppins must have been a witch. Wonder if she knows Dumbledore, maybe she'll be the next defense against the dark arts teacher. Anybody getting any snow? If it gets any warmer here, they'll be growing palm trees on the shores of Lake Ontario.

Oh, I definitely think Ms. Poppins was a witch. Those muggles never knew what hit 'em! And I bet she'd make an excellent DADA teacher. Perhaps you should start a fic challenge!

NYC had a high today of 51F. But we had our snowstorm already for the season. That was enough for me!

Thank you, Liz. I hope book six comes out in 2005, and not in 2006 (2004 seems increasingly unlikely). If the GoF film and book 6 come out in 2005, it will be a very good year.

What about Harry Potter the musical? Snape's solo would be great. Hagrid could do a dance routine. Could you just imagine the production involved in the Voldemort rebirthing scene.

Liz, I must apologize about my 2003 statement. I have been so engrossed in movies that I *gasp* forgot about book 5 coming out. Oh will everyone forgive me? My brain really messed that one up, but if my brain was working perfectly normal I wouldn't be in St. Mungo's now would I? hehehe.

Mary Poppins as the next DADA teacher, I nearly fell off my chair laughing! What if Mary Poppins was Prof. MacGonagall's alias during the war that Dumbledore defeated what's his name? Hum.

As for the Harry Potter musical... Imagine Umbridge singing! Hem, Hem.

Draco pirouetting would be funny, but what about the Dance of the Owls, Errol would be great just flopping around and landing in a milk jug. Provided, by the way, by Aberforth's Enchanted Dairy.

_____________________________________

Gina R Snape - Jan 5, 2004 5:00 am (#1806 of 2955)

Oh, Blast. What is with the goats tonight?! These pictures are disturbing!

Now, would this be a ballet of PS/SS? Because I'd rather like to see quidditch on ballet and Snape as referee. Not to mention his sweeping around in the Potions classroom. Couldn't you picture Hermione on point, flitting back and forth between her own and Neville's cauldrons? And Snape swooping in to stop her?

Gina, you must find a picture of Snape in ballet tights.

Blast - I think I'm going to have to agree with Gina on the disturbing picture sentiment. Unfortunately for me, it's because the milk-pumping picture hits a little too close to home. I wonder if you aren't enjoying the same balmy weather we're enjoying this week, seeing that you share my appreciation for a higher latitude. The high is supposed to be between -5 to -15F tomorrow (sorry, don't know the C). We have about 2 inches of snow until Wyoming sends us some wind. Too cold for snowmen, but great for shoveling.

I would also like to try out for a tree part in whichever production the St. Mungo's Players choose as I have that much acting talent.

I saw that I was assigned a WX e-mail under my preferences, but I'm not really sure how to access it. I suppose there's a thread or something all about it somewhere. As my brother has been so kind to inform me, my computer problems are mainly PEBKAC errors (Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair). Ah, sigh. Too bad he happens to be right.

Madam Poppy, if you have anything to help Aria out with the 5 horrible, wicked shots she had to get today, we would appreciate it.

Oh oh, the Ministry closed down Aberforth's Enchanted Dairy. I hear they were doing some very strange things there. One of the goats turned out to be Rosemerta, somebody had transformed her. She'll be here for a while for some deep psychological healing. On the good news front I hear J.K.R. is going to do some spots for Snape Beverages.

I think what you heard about JKR doing adverts for Snape Beverages is an unfortunate rumour. That nasty little doxy has been saying terrible things about my husband for years. Never has a nice word for him. About the only time she's ever said anything even remotely nice was when she said she knew he wouldn't wear a turban. So at least she's somewhat aware of my husband's exquisite sense of style.

Was it you Penny? Or were you the one turned into a mouse?

Oh, no that was my hubby, a Mr. Alan Rickman - he was turned into a mouse by a canary cream, but fortunately, Madam Poppy turned him right again, leaving him with the unfortunate side effect of pink eyes. It was a little too creepy for me, so, we are estranged while I try and figure out a potion to get his gorgeous eyes back.

Oh, and I made him put on his track suit and trainers and do 15 minutes on the treadmill.

Welcome back Cliff!

*----(points at Aria)* Hey Cliff! Look what I found! The youngest St Mungo's resident. Well, OK - I didn't exactly find her but, well, she likes it here - right under the disco ball especially.

Boop - welcome! Don't worry about which ward you're in. Most incoming patients get placed in the Drugged, Damaged or Disoriented Ward & this sounds like where you're at. Just to be sure, you can look out in the hallway and you should see a pair of legs pacing back & forth. Someone's botched apparation - & from the early 1970's by the look of them. The quickest way out of that Ward is to avoid the lime jello. The quickest way back into it is to do this:

*grabs a large spoonful of jello & flips it at Cliff*

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA yourself!

I am currently in the Alan Rickman movie ward.

It is a bit funny to hear Snape in a movie and see a whole different person. It's an old movie called the January murders (or something like that) but the person he plays is quit sarcastic so it is a bit snapish...

_____________________________________

boop - Jan 6, 2004 11:46 pm (#1830 of 2955)

Thanks everyone, I dislike lime jello, so that won't be a problem. Is there any other food or drink to worry about? I did take a peek down the hall and saw the pair of legs. I know now that I am in the right ward. I not only have feathers, but my nose is getting longer. Would red jello help? Cliff, have some lime jello. Oh sorry, I missed and hit a strange looking person - I think it is a person? I'm going to go before I get something thrown at me. *sneaks back to bed*

_____________________________________

Gina R Snape - Jan 7, 2004 12:24 am (#1831 of 2955)

Well, boop, aside from the green jello, they often serve calamari.

As for things being thrown, we've had flying bedpans in here before. I think there were some flying fish too. Can't quite remember...

As for the PoA party in June, last time Carina placed an order for snacks and bevvies with us in advance. Luckily, we were able to change the delivery address in time, to the Fallout Shelter. But no one has placed another order with us yet...

_____________________________________

Cliff Hamaker - Jan 7, 2004 2:58 am (#1832 of 2955)

Well, then, it must be done at once! Carina??? Where are you? I have no idea what to order.... oh, Merlin bless it....

And thank you boop. I think I might try the red jello. Wilemina should come out eventually...

It's good to know I was missed, Carina. Thankee!

Man, it's been a while. So, anything interesting been happening since I've been gone?

I suppose the jello is safe now? That's good. It was quite a menace when I was last here.

Ok, I'll be right back guys. I've got some... stuff to do... Smile

*sets out the jello and hides around the corner waiting for Wilemina to appear from a nearby airduct*

Speaking of missing members (like Wilemina and Clyffe -- I always liked the way Clyffe brooded), isn't there a purple sloth somewhere? It's been so long, he's probably blended in with the furniture. Where's Denise S? Has anyone seen her? She was the sloth's caretaker for a long time.

Cliff Hamaker - Jan 7, 2004 3:08 am (#1835 of 2955)

The purple sloth!!! I remember him! Denise made a sweater out of his fur. Or something... Anyway....

I believe Denise is currently in the employ of the WWN. I believe they're dealing with a hostile takeover from centaurs, though from the last broadcast I believe Hagrid's brother made his own hostile takeover. It's playing awful music now. Well, that's where she is. I think. Pretty sure anyway.

On the lighter side I think that the people at Aberforth's Enchanted Dairy are going away for a long time. Not only did they turn Madame Rosemerta into a goat, but they were selling very suspicious cashmere sweaters.

WELCOME BACK CLIFF HAMAKER! I made a list ages ago of the members who disappeared during all the moving around and I can finally take you off the list! Now it's just Dudley, kheshire, Alianora, Eloise Midgeon and kabloink.

Also, a very big St Mungo's welcome to Boop!

What's this about an evil purple sloth? I wasn't in the hospital before we came back after the moving around.

And we have got to have a party to celebrate the release! It's coming out everywhere on the same day right? Some countries aren't getting it before others are they? Well, hopefully I'll be seeing it before June 4th anyway because they should be doing previews. But I'll come on here and make all those who haven't seen it jealous. *evil laugh*

LJ didn't have a moving buddy in the Great Migration, as I understand. He could be anywhere in Cyberia, but as naked Purple giant-sloths are easy to spot at a distance, I'd say he got left behind....

And where is Denise? I'm starting to get suspicious that somebody locked her in a broom cupboard or something.

Liz, you're too thoughtful. Will you really get to see it early?

Man, it's been a while. So, anything interesting been happening since I've been gone?

(Throws her spoon at Cliff & picks up Aria who sticks her tongue out to emphasize a point.)

So Gina, am I to assume you are not in possession of the purple sweater, or socks, or whatever it was that was painstakingly knit from LJ's molting fur?

Amy - nice to see you. Good luck in the time-travel bit. Perhaps you could borrow the time turner from Dumbledore.

_____________________________________

Gina R Snape - Jan 8, 2004 12:30 am (#1849 of 2955)

I never received any purple knitwear, Ticker. And frankly, I was not a fan of LJ, so I would not have accepted the gift. I am mildly concerned that we are discussing him it all. I fear it might hasten his return.

In any event, Severus has cast a protective charm on my ward for me. I wonder if our newest residents realise their wands are actually giant pencils.

Boop, I'm going to ask you to be very, very brave. Take a deep breath. Ok, ready? If you truly want to know who Lime Jello (LJ) the evil purple sloth is, you will need to read all 1800+ posts on this thread. Start at the beginning and read the history of St. Mungo's, it's residents, and activities. That will clear up many questions. It will also occupy all your free time for the next 6 years.

Ok - you can scream now if you need to.

OH MY, That’s alot to read! Maybe I could get a resident to read to me, because I'm seeing double. Might this be a side effect? I think I will go check the wards out and meet the other residents.

_____________________________________

Gina R Snape - Jan 8, 2004 2:51 am (#1854 of 2955)

I agree. Having a look at the previous 1850 posts will probably go a long way to help your condition AND inform you about LJ. I went back a few days ago and was relieved to see the original Snape Beverages label is still up. I was concerned about our advertising.

As they say when you get the flu shot "This will only hurt a bit."

Oh, and make sure you go to the loo first.

By the way, speaking of people we haven't heard from in a while on St. Mungo's, what about WJ and Slytherin Girl?

Oh, and Boop, most of the St. Mungo's posts were actually very funny, so, go ahead! Read them all!

*rummages in bagpipe* Look what I found, guys! It's an authentic Aboriginal didgeridoo (Here's a really great website about them: http://aboriginalart.com.au/didgeridoo/music.html )! I have two fantastic instruments now! I'm going to compose a medley of HP music for my bagpipe and didgeridoo. I'll be sure to have it in time for June 4th!

Istari, Slytherin Girl now goes by Sly Girl and she doesn't seem to be making much of an appearance lately.

WJ on the other hand seems to have gone totally AWOL. I know she was working on cleaning up old threads on the main forum. So, maybe she's too busy to come party?

Abby, I cannot believe your taste in musical instruments. I'll just leave it at that... (and put a strong silencing charm on my room).

Blast, I'd be wary of 'finding' anything round here. Have you tried the chocolate yet?

Uh - good luck to anyone reading the full text of St Mungo's - or as much of it that's here, what with the dementor or poultergeist or whatever it was that caused mass evacuation of the Lexiconing world. They should probably re-open the Don't-Bother-Me-I'm-Reading (DBMIR) Ward if you do. (Previously by reservation only when book 5 came out)

Severus has kindly offered some Skepticism Salve to alleviate you of that pesky “trust in found items” issue...

My oldest just got herself a new laptop, if she ever reads Harry Potter she will be on this forum all the time. She's going to be a teacher and wants to go up to the artic to teach for a few years. Being very cold and dark mostly we wouldn't get her out of St. Mungo's, not that that's a bad idea, but she is so off the wall it even scares me. She would make Luna look quite normal. Maybe that's why I love her so much, she is a person who someday will make a difference in the world. She would also probably be the person to put an end to all the pureblood garbage and free the elves. Long live anarchy!! Gina, let’s break out the Snog, haven’t heard from Boop today, and they're serving chicken in the dining room.

It was a blast, wasn't it, Marie? Gnarly Vampire Biker club...Snape in Drag Ballroom Dancing Competitions...Calamari nights. Whose toilet overflowed? Was it Caitlin's? I believe during that time, dear Poppy Pomfrey was the sanest one there. Thank goodness she could care for both us and the Hogwarts students at the same time. Many times I was afraid she would crack and join our side of the side of St. Mungo's as a patient rather than as our nurse, but alas, earwax...she has retained her mental health fairly well considering the hard times we gave her and the other staff members;) I also haven't seen Kip here for a while, unless he visits incognito...or in anything else, like a leisure suit or something. Hope you can post again real soon, Kip!

Change them into the Weasley Twins? A couple of Venomous Tentaculas? (a poisonous plant from the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone video game...and I absolutely hated it! Took me three days to get rid of it!...). A couple of Trolls? How about two winged Pegasi? Or, my personal favorites – fire-breathing dragons?

Oh, and 'Newt... we did try to have a Quidditch team here. We had a lovely Quidditch Stadium down near the lake. Pyro and Pyro John from the X-men movies burned it down last May during my birthday celebration. The fire was great for roasting hotdogs and we made some really yummy S'mores from the fire. We stiffed Lucious Malfoy for the bill to rebuild another...I mean... Lucious Malfoy generously donated a considerable sum to rebuild a new Quidditch field. Never had a Quidditch team though...the idea never really ...got off the ground:)

Well, everyone here knows I am an unregistered animagus. (I am a cat, and I wear a heart-shaped locket with my beloved's picture in it. He gave it to me for Valentine's Day last year).

Hmmmm, with all the fowl afoot lately, maybe I should turn back into a cat. Might be fun for a change.

By the way, if Marie and Liz don't want to be transfigured, they should avoid that lovely plate of chocolate chip cookies over there. I hope no one gives them a cookie before they notice the warning...

What is it with animaguses - nearly every one is a cat. You know cats have it pretty good. A woman I work with said that cats have a great life and if she could come back as one when she died, she said that she would have him cremated and put in the litter box. Here comes one of those birds now, thufferin’ thuccotash and it's a big one too, yummy.

Oh, great! So I get to spend Animagus week as a Chicken! I could have turned into a Red-Tailed Hawk, or an Eagle, or even a Swan, but oh, no, look at me...I'm a chicken. Well (sighs heavily) it could be worse. I could have turned into a Do-Do bird, or a Booby, or a North American Turkey Vulture... anyway, I need the eggs....

Say, Pinky...do your canary creams transform people into yellow canaries only, or can they turn into neon orange and green ones, too? I wouldn't mind being a canary if I could be one in a violent shade of neon orange.

Yeah, sorry about that, Liz, I was feeling a bit...rebellious. What can I say...maybe I have a bit of a Slytherin streak in me trying to get out:)

Hey 'Newt...did you happen to think Gilderoy Lockhart's comment to Snape during the dueling Match in the HP/COS movie was a bit Sylvester-ish? It's the spot where Lockhart had just been blasted by Snape, and gets up and says"...it was ppprrretty obvious" that he knew exactly what Snape was going to do.

By the way, Gina, please tell Severus that was the best part of the whole movie, and I truly admire his strength of character not to have blasted Lockhart to pieces! A lesser man would have done such a thing.

Istari I thought he was more like Daffy, but now that you mention it he was a bit like Sylvester. Imagine all that experience doing Shakespeare and he reaches to a cartoon for inspiration. Instead of Finite Incantatum, Snape should of said “Ththththat's all folks.” B.T.W. this is a story I read to my daughters when they were little [see picture] and when I read about Mrs. Figg this is how I pictured her.

Istari, I'm not sure about the canary coloring. I got a Jello cookbook for Christmas and I've been looking through the recipes. Maybe if we add orange Jello mix to the cream inside, you might turn into an orange canary. Or a flying orange. Either way, you wouldn't be a chicken. You want to try it?

Yes Gina, Severus could easily have turned Lockhart into a pulverized pile of doxie droppings without breaking a sweat. Lockhart should consider himself very lucky indeed. (But I would have paid good money to see it!) I do have concerns turining into an Animagus, though...I have a feeling I would turn into a cow, or something really stupid...

LOL Abby...Look how you can now multi-task! Swim live a beaver...lay eggs like a duck...keep warm with a lovely fur coat...Frankly, a yeti might have been ...well, too much. I would have liked to have seen a real picture of you as a Yeti, though. Most scientific magazines would pay big bucks for a yeti picture of you. Guess you'll be missing out on a good money making opportunity there!

Gee Maré, I think you look kind of cute! I better warn you, though, sea turtles are considered a delicacy in some cultures. Please don't get caught! Calamari nights give us enough anxiety. If the staff here ever serves us turtle soup we might worry it was made out of you.

Gee, Pinky, that's a tough choice. On one hand I certainly don't want to be a flying orange, and being an orange canary would be kinda neat for a while, and I have plenty of eggs now, thank you, especially since we have new sources for our egg supply (Abby's platypus eggs and Mare's turtle eggs to be precise!)... I'd kinda like to be a Phoenix for a while... do you have any jello that can do that?

Shakespearian actors motivated by Looney Tunes characters...how intriguing, 'Newt! The last bit of culture I found involving Looney Tunes folk was Elmer Fudd doing an Elvis impersonation by singing "Viva, Wos Vegas"

You know, when Severus and I were on one of our first dates, he told me the whole story about that scene with Lockhart. Doxy droppings would have been kind compared to what he wanted to do. But oh, the scandal--if you knew what McGonagall wanted to do to him while he was at Hogwarts. She had even less patience for Gilderoy than Severus did!

Anyway, I don't think it would be so bad to be a cow. They are very sweet creatures with beautiful eyes--and four stomachs!

Congratulations to all of you who have discovered your true animagi forms! It's a beautiful thing to be celebrated!!!! Now, how's about a nice omelet?

Running away isn't that easy with these feet/fins/whatever I got now.

And hey Carina, why does your animagus form has a zipper? Hmmm, suspicious!

Don't worry, sea turtles are on the endangered species list and are protected, so are platypi, but on the other hand canaries aren't and puddy tats don't read that much.

If I were an animagus what would I be? Sounds like a question you would be asked at a "get to know yourself better" retreat. Or a question on a psychological test. Hum, what would I be? 25 years ago I would have said a monkey, I am rather partial to penguins. I guess I will never find out unless I try, huh. Well here goes nothing!.......

Party party party two hours sleep, party party party. either that or a real bad case of pink eye. I hope that you weren't drinking anything from Aberforth's Enchanted Dairy, that might be your real looks now, not an Animagus form. BTW the Animagus week is being brought to you by Snape Beverages, Hogsmead.

OMG! The reaction to Jim's sloth made me laugh so much that I couldn't stop! And as most of you probably know, when you're already laughing, the tiniest things that wouldn't normally make you do anything more than smile make you even worse. So when I read Gina's comments about Carina's rabbit I went absolutely crazy!

AGH! My animagus transformation didn't come out exactly as I planned! I've got the back end of a lion, the front end of a zebra, the head of a dog, the ears of an elephant, the horns of a stag and the nose of Rudolph the red-nosed reigndeer!!

I hope I can transform back again.

Amy, you are a very cute puffskein. Careful, though. You might start getting batted around like a ball, you're so round and fuzzy.

I still think Jim's sloth is cute. It's the eyes...

Liz, could your animagus form possibly be a result of a multiple personalities disorder? One form for each personality?

Well, as for my form, I can hear everything so much clearer. * reaches up and feels ears * Oh, my ears are pointy. I guess I had better open my eyes now. Wow, everyone else looks so much bigger! Quick where is a mirror, I want to look and see what I am.

BTW, There is an Orlando Bloom film fest in my room tonight. I am starting off with Pirates of the Carribean, then showing two of the LOTR's movies. Happy Birthday Orlando! What are the chances that Bloom might end up as Bill or Charlie Weasley?

I've wanted to be a sloth for years. Or a bear in a state of semi-permanent hibernation. Blast, I don't think it was the Snoat that sent me like this or I'd be a goat, right? Perhaps its Snoat-depriviation, I've been trying to stop drinking the stuff lately...could have turned me into a bleary-eyed sleep-a-holic. Wait, I was already a sleep-a-holic...

Now my head hurts from all this thinking...perhaps I'll just go to sleep...

You know Jim, your picture does kinda grow on you after a while. At first it just...well, ...it just reminded me of a scalded poodle...

Abby, I have no doubt you would have been the best Yeti ever. What color would you be? White as the driven snow with silver and gold highlights? That would be lovely.

Multiple personalities, hmm that is a very interesting theory. It is not polite to make fun of such a serious disorder, but what heck everybody into the pool! If I had multiple personalities I would want one to be Scottish, one Irish, one English, one Spanish, one German, one Jamaican, and one from the Indian subcontinent. Hey maybe I am because I usually do those voices everyday. Sometimes the stuffed animals in the house do them too. Please help me I just realized that I might have a few screws loose. Maybe my kids have been right about me all the time, they don't introduce me to their friends, they just say Dad don't say or do anything stupid.

Jim, I know how you feel about wanting to hibernate (I'm narcoleptic) I love to sleep. So.... If I turn into a bat during the day and back into human form at night, does that mean I get to sleep 24 hours a day?

I'll play the viola for the hot potato game, when the music stops, whoever is holding Amy is out. No throwing her! Every one ready?

Istari, I think I'd have been a nice periwinkle blue Yeti.

But, guess what! I've found a much better instrument to use in my animagus state! A sitar! The didgeridoo was hard on my bill, and, like I said, I kept poking holes in my bagpipe (a simple Reparo! fixed it, however.)

*plays "Le Freak" on sitar (Freak out! Le freak, so chic. )*

Viola Intonada - Jan 14, 2004 12:58 pm (#1950 of 2955)

How about the tune "The Animal Fair"

I went to the animal fair, all the birds and beast were there. The big baboon, by the light of the moon, was picking his auburn hair. The monkey he got drunk and sat on the elephant's trunk The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees and that was end of the....

Okay, music stopped, who is holding Amy?

Hem, Hem, how about a squirrel? Think of all the places you could hang out and eavesdrop without anyone noticing. Dumbledore might even ask you to be in the OotP to help spy.

Oh a naked mole rat, they are great. They have a big colony of them at the Metro Toronto zoo. I could watch them for hours, but in my cat form they would be a sensible meal, no hair balls. Who's the highest on the food chain in their animagus form? What about a Karaoke night Harry Potter style. We could have the different characters sing songs. Voldemort could sing My Way.

Well, yay for '94....

Hmmm......... '95. Started fifth grade towards the end of that year. Applied to go to my city's Magnet school. Little did I know.... But I had fun making my poor grades that would come to haunt me in my high school years. Grand time I tell you.

But that will have to wait for the next few posts....

Started the Magnet School. Did the Honor Code thing, kinda new, but cool because I was afraid about learning how to work a lock (of all things...) Had a *ahem* flamboyant gym teacher.... :shudder: Oh, and a British lunch lady called Mrs. Marstellar. She was fun. I got a story about her in a couple of posts...

Best year EVER! Man, I had friends and I actually DID stuff on the weekends. Those were the times... And a girlfriend. My last so far. Man was she CLINGY. Very bad. So, I've decided to wait. And I've been waiting for 4 years.... But I'm cool. Leaves me open for college......

OK! My final year at the Magnet school. Still passing... right.... Anyway, dropped band this year, and only this year, to pursue other extracurriculars, such as Drama and Nat. Sci. and Art. The first was great, and I had a lot of fun. I was even in a few plays. (we did a really cool Junior Broadway show of School House Rock... I still remember the songs and they've come in handy too ) And, being the spiteful teenagers we were, decided to mess around with Mrs. Marstellar... Remember, the British lunch monitor? Anyway, on April Fool's day we all decided to take all of our books and drop them on the ground at the same time. Actually, kinda stupid now... But it was hilarious back then.

Oh, and even better! My evil English teacher, who made us memorize the states AND their capitals, along with EVERY SINGLE EUROPEAN NATION AND THEIR CAPITALS...... HOW that pertains to English class I have YET to figure out... Anyway, one of my friends at the end of the year got her a cake that said something along the lines of "Thanks for teaching us grammer!" and asked for grammar to be purposefully mis-pelled... Oh, man. Good stuff...

2000!!!!!!!!!!!

First year of high school! Kinda scary but really fun because I was in the MARCHING BAND!!!! And if you have even been a Marching Band Dork or at the very least a Band Dork, you know how much it ROCKS!!! So, I had friends who were upper classmen and they helped out. And I always had someone to talk to. However, this was the first time I had to do the whole "locker room" thing, which I found disconcerting at first. But got used to it. That and I finally was forced to know how to work a lock. Of course I never used my locker, and haven't since except in extreme cases where I had three or four books no less than an inch and a half each to carry around that day. Not fun.

EDIT: Oh, yeah.... THIS IS THE TWO THOUSANDTH POST!!!! HAHA!!! I GOT IT YOU DIDN'T!!! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

And remember, we will NOT be discharged from St. Mungo's. Clearly we have not shown any improvement in our current mental status or obsessions, and from what I understand from my friends in the Ministry, there is no current programs established yet to mainstream us into the so-called "normal" Wizarding world.

Geez, 2022. I'll be 38 (I used a calculator this time ). Oh my gosh! But, hey, 100 years since the discovery of King Tut's tomb. 2022 works for me. I'm so having a party that year.

So, is it going to be Polyjuice Potion Week? Because I rather enjoy theme weeks. Once during my sophomore year of high school for School Lunch Week (go figure), we had a movie theme. There were movie posters all over the walls and they played movie scores. And the food had themes too. I believe Monday was Back to the Future Monday and we had Marty McChicken (which, I believe, should have caused McDonald's to sue the cafeteria, but they didn't.) Gosh, I wish I had written down what all they had because it was rather nifty. I remember one day was a 2001: A Space Odyssey themed meal. And one day they played "The Raiders March" from Indy. And that Friday was Halloween so everyone dressed as a movie character (I was Jan Brady. Well, a brunette Jan Brady, but I had the glasses and the walk and the Hawaiian shirt. Ooh, I was the new Jan Brady! ) Wait, didn't I have a point at the beginning of this tirade? I can't remember now.

Be careful with the polyjuice potion - Lockheart was running down the hall in a panic, seems he's having a little problem with a receding hair line. Dobby just came by . He collects hair of people he's met and keeps it in a bag, quite a big bag too. We could pass the bag around and see who we get. Well here goes... tastes like cabbage yum. Well it worked. Has anyone got a mirror?

Great idea, Blast!

Hey, guys, I might be gone for a while! My brother's supposed to be coming over later and he might be taking my computer so he can make it run better and stuff. Thing is he always takes a lot longer with these things than he says he will. So I'll see you all in like... three months. Just kidding! I don't know how long it'll take. But however long it is, they'll be LOADS of posts to catch up on!

See you all soon!

Threaten to hex him Liz, this one is good but it is tricky, FRATERNUS CANUS DOMUS, it kind of means he'll be in the dog house with us if your away too long. Or we could get my wife to pay him a visit, and you don't want to get her angry her animagus form is a very teed off bear.

Being JKR is great. You can go anywhere and you get treated like Royalty. It is great shopping, just tell them to send the bill to my home, he he. I gave an interview and gave them some facts about the next books, ha ha. Then I told the interviewer that D.D. is really an animagus, ho ho.The only mistake that I made was going into the wrong loo. Let's order out and I'll take care of the bill I also got a credit card today, he he. I think I'm becoming a Slytherin.

Pinky, you got into St. Mungo's because in your subconscious you have always wanted to be here. You know deep in your heart that you belong here....

And as for the rest of your questions.. did you took any of those "Welcome to St. Mungo's" cocktails near the entrance????
Because that would explain a lot.

Rule nr #2. Also don't drink anything when you do know who made it. Constant vigilance! Trust no-one!

Mare, all I drank was an authentic polyjuice potion with a hair that levitated itself into the cup. I definitely know that I belong here, I'm just having an identity crisis. I'm not even sure there's a ward for me. I keep trying to use my elfin powers, only to be stopped by feeling like I should use the Force. My name seems to have changed.... I think it's Doda now. Or Yobby. I'm so confused....

While I appreciate the creative use of wands in this corridor, to be fair, and quite frankly, to make this a safe environment for others (including Peeves), I must insist that you turn off the green swishy thing. Otherwise I shall be forced to take it from you as well.

(Gags down Jello with an unidentified hair, followed by a S'nog chaser) I feel...odd. Something strange is coursing through my veins, along my limbs. I feel my body changing...shifting... A strange sense of power has overtaken me. I have an incredible desire to control... to dominate... to moderate... to Kipendo! Ahhhh-ha-ha-ha-haaa! Oh, no! (Runs to a nearby Mirror of Gnikniht Lufhsiw) Oh, man! I've turned into Kip!

Excellent avatar Pinky or is it Doda/ Yobby?

For Polyjuice week, I'm currently assuming the guise of Aunt Pet in the hope that I will find out more of what she knows about the Wizarding World! However I think I will be bored with all this house work soon ... and I'm tempted to buy one of the dresses in the window, oh dear, I never knew that being Aunt Petunia would be so hard! Now where did I put my rubber gloves again ... *faints from smell of bleach*

Abby, I'm worried about you. Remember Poly Juice Potions only work for human transformations. I'm not sure Umbridge was really human. You may be stuck like that!

Alright! Now it's my turn at the poly juice potion. * grabs a nearby hair and puts it in the potion, drinks then looks in the mirror*

Oh no! I grabbed one of the staff's hair! Now I have become a Doctor.

Well, after resisting and hiding out with Sirius in Grimmauld Place for months, I've finally been caught. I am Marauder5, I'm new, and I've skipped reading most of the 2,000+ posts here because of my obsessive reading disorder. Yes that's my ward, I spend most of my time there, moving between the PoA and OotP rooms. I spend a month here and there in the Lupin Can Be Cured ward. By the way, I've only read the first 70 or so posts (my obsession...) but is the lime jello still being served? I promise to cooperate.

And do I hear that it's polyjuice potion week? Ha ha, just you wait, I've got a whole stash... No, nurse, that wasn't me...it was...it was...Viola! Yes! She's pretending to be a nurse, but...what do you mean I've got to wear a jacket? I'm not loony! A padded room, hm? Well, doesn't sound too bad... *waves good-bye to her fellow inmates, er, friends, at St. Mungoes*

_____________________________________

Maré - Jan 20, 2004 11:33 pm (#2075 of 2955)

A jacket! Cool we all got jackets! In nice colours, look at my... hey! Where is my jacket..?

And oh Marauder5, it is wise to keep the doors locked there is something big, hairy and scary loose right now. St. Mungo's isn't the joyful place it used to be, oh no!

_____________________________________

Emily - Jan 20, 2004 11:51 pm (#2076 of 2955)

Big, hairy, and scary? You don't mean that-*gasp!*- Hagrid! Get out! The nice nurse told me I would get to be alone! *sheepishly* Oh, no, I see, you mean Liz. Is that all? A quintaped? I'll just get her with a patronus...oh, where's your wand when you need it? NO! Get off Liz! wand..wand...wher's my wand?...Oh well, I can still transform.

*transforms into a Chimaera, while silently cursing the nurses for labeling me insane and confiscating my wand*

You see, there has only been one successful slaying of a Chimaera. And I don't plan to let Ms. MacBoon cause #2. Oh, nurse, no, I wasn't attacking her, we were just playing. Honest! Not the Jacket.......!

Blast - Jan 21, 2004 2:49 am (#2083 of 2955)

Gina, did you ever think that Hermione's hair was accidently dropped there by Draco, after he had some polyjuice potion? I hear that he secretly enjoys polyjuicing into muggle-borns just to see how it feels.

Oh if Lucius knew, he might just end up here himself.

_____________________________________

Gina R Snape - Jan 21, 2004 4:05 am (#2084 of 2955)

Amy, I'd say the hair, sideburns and attire kind of give it away.

Blast, I do not believe for a second that Draco left those hairs there. I found a few stray hairs in my husband's storeroom. If Draco had been in there, I would have found his hairs too! But I did not...

I would have polyjuiced into Severus, but he expressed extreme discomfort at the idea. Plus, we wanted to find the person pinching his supplies. Draco couldn't have known we were going to do that.

I did read a fanfic once, though, where he polyjuiced himself into Hermione. It was quite an interesting reaction he had! Because he thought he was turning into Ron to spy on Harry. And boy was he wrong!

Hey guys. Sorry to ask such a stupid question, but being a new patient here at St. Mungo’s, how do you decide if it polyjuice, or animagus week or whatever?

*hangs head in despair at having to ask such a silly question*

Well.... It's actually quite a process.

First, we all vote on whether or not we want to have a week. Then once that vote is voided and nulled by the doctors, we proceed to pick out a week. After half of us are carted back to our wards for "dis-Orderly behavior" (that means yelling at the Orderlies, by the way), a shiny thing dressed in black glides into the room where we've managed to squeeze into. A few hours and an alien abduction later, we find ourselves with no clue as to what happened and vote again on whether or not we want to have a week. After we run from doctors that are trying to get us to eat.... :shudder: Jello of all things, we set our companions free from their imprisonment. Once the Doctors have had their Jello, we all sit down and play Duck, Duck, Goose! to the soothing tunes of the Weird Sisters. When the winner has won, though we aren't entirely sure how that happens and it usually involves a game of Red Rover, that person decides on the week.

And that is how I’ts done at St. Mungo's.

Oh! New polyjuice potion..... hhmmm.........

Oh, THOSE weren't there before.... And I'm feeling strangely narcissistic.... *looks into a mirror*

Wow! I'm Narcissa! Draco, come here this INSTANT!

*storms off down the hall looking for her no good son*

*waves two-ended red swishy thing around*

Actually Julia, this week and last week are the first ever "weeks" at St. Mungo's. We often have parties, movie nights, etc, but last week, it was randomly declared to be animagus week. It was so much fun, that this week, it was randomly decided to have a polyjuice week. We can only wait to see if things go back to "normal" next week, or if there is more in store for us.... Oh, and be sure to get your flying bedpan from the supply closet. All pencils found lying around may actually be disguised wands. And do not eat the jello. No matter what.

...especially the hairy jello... unless served by Dr. Viola...unless you haven't had a nap & need one... and absolutely NO CALAMARI.

OK Blast - you get the disturbing avatar award this week.

Although seeing 2 Draco's running around is also disturbing. I don't know Liz, while I'm grateful your appetite has changed, I'm not sure which is better...

Marie - was it Hansen's? I drank as much of that as I could afford - yum! Ahhh - the rockin', synthesizer-driven 80's...

(Walks around the corner & runs into Istari) Oh man! This is so embarrassing - to show up as the same person. (Pulls out an old concert scrapbook, grabs a hair & slugs down more polyjuice...)

Hey, Amy! Arr!

Blast, I know that mummy. . .

Julia, like most things around here, such announcements are rather random and are located sporadically about.

O and Julia, this is the one spot in the world where there are truly no silly questions! Okay, so that would basically be because there are no answers to said questions (probably due to a lack of structure) but who cares.

Ms. Granger.... why aren't you in class? .... *scary beady-eyed look*

Hee hee, just kidding Julia .... it's me, Fawkes. Like my new hat?

Must say I haven't found out any of Snape’s secrets, but am enjoying the power trip. Next time I see Darth Draco I'll confiscate that double-ended lightsabre & have some fun of my own.

I did manage to leave St Mungo’s today ... found a secret passage in that broom cupboard when I spent the night in my Petunia guise after fainting from the smell of bleach (that woman must have built up an immunity!) Anyways, I followed the secret passage & found myself in Hogsmeade ... must be magic as it only took me 10 minutes to 'walk' from London to Hogsmeade ... pretty cool actually, unless it was that bowl of green jelly that I found on the floor in reception & ate, quite tasty really.

From there I went up to Hogwarts & did a bit of snooping around Snape’s office, thankfully the main man was out .... I did get a few compliments on my new hat however, Madame Pomfrey even asked to borrow it! Anyways, whilst snooping around Snape’s office, I found a piece of parchment on the desk with a few scribbles on it saying 'SS and GRS forever' & a few little hearts... hmmm wonder what that could mean .... any ideas Gina?

Let it be known here at St. Mungo's that I have been suspicious for some time about how things are run here.

Greetings! Greetings! Well, I had a couple of polyjuice cocktails before I got here. Alas, I'm Draco Malfoy, second nemesis to my precious Harry. I swear there must have been some Gollum hair in that drink. I can't wipe the smug off my face. Keep an eye on me because I'm always up to no good under the influence. I am the apple of my mother's eye and vinegar in all except my fellow Slytherins.

Pinky, you get best potion of the day. Way, way, too, too cool!

Edit: Didn't I just see the other Draco? Oh no! Now there will be double the misery. I'm going to get on my very expensive broom and fly away until this wears off. Although I am vain enough to delight in seeing myself coming and going. OOOO! Two of me and only one Potter. I like those odds. I'm like a schizo here. I love Harry but this potion makes me want to invent new torments for him. Maybe, I will just go and spend some of father’s money.

Hello, hello Flame, so glad to see you could make it....

I ate some jelly off the floor earlier ... I don't advise it... that goes for most edible (& inedible) things round here! However it did assist me in finding a rather nifty secret passage to Hogsmeade through a broom cupboard ...

Yeah, I think there must've been something else in the polyjuice. I turned into Sirius Black and my personality hasn't changed one bit. Even if that smarmy pallid rammy fleabag husband of mine disagrees.

Hello to all you newbies! If you can't find a place to stay please feel free to stay in my U bend.

Na na na na na na na na Blast End!

Yes indeedy, I am loosing my marbles... last seen them in the tea shop on the top floor.... if any one finds them.. please keep them

EDIT : Oh dear Flame... now I know who ate the rest of the Gollum Jelly! *giggling inanely here* ..'His Weazey has gone Solo' .... oh thats a classic

Blast, we will NOT have a "pick on Snape" week. Sometimes, every week feels like "pick on Snape" week.

Istari, Severus still says he loves me. But he won't even sit in the same room as me until the polyjuice wears off. *sigh* I miss him.

I'm not sure I can take much more of it. Sirius is starting to get kind of itchy, actually.

Fawkes F., We's wants to thank Fawkes for inviting us to St. Mungo's. We's loveses it over here. Yes, we's loves it. It's tricksey but never false. Smeagol likes to laugh. Yes, Smeagol likes to laugh. Not much laughter in Smeagol’s world. Mostly, dark and shadow. (*head down sad expression on face*) Smeagol is cold on this winter's day. We don't wear clotheses. Only loin cloth. Smeagol is cold.

Where is Istari? Perhaps Smeagol's Master can help Istari apparate. We's wants to see Istari. If not, we's can still feel Istari. Smeagol has great senseses. Smeagol has instincts go back to the primal form. Yes, Smeagol is primal instinct. Gollum! (*choke, gag, drool, gulp*) Gollum! (*choke, gag, drool gulp*)

Mistress Gina R. Snape, Smeagol would never pick on Snape. No, never. Could Snape help Smeagol find a new precious? Snape is powerful wizard who know the Dark Arts. Would he help Smeagol?

Edit: Fawkeses, Smeagol could not resist a classic. Someone had to say it might as well be Smeagol. Yes, it was us. We's had to say it. (*squatting and looking as if face to face with Fawkes.*)

Yes, indeedy I've lost my marbles...

I've gone Gollum. Please somebody stop me!!!

Right! Healers - stunners at the ready! ... *wam bam* ..... whoops missed, but I always thought that we could do with another door in that wall there ...

Quick, someone catch Gollum/Flame/Smeagol, I think she needs a bit of rest up on the fourth floor...

I'll clean up the reminants of the Gollum Jelly on the floor... looks tasty ... no no, must resist .... Scourgify ... hmmm, that’s the Gollum Jelly sorted... now where did Gollum get to?

Gina R Black, I mean Sirius, oh I mean Gina R Snape (whoops), just be comforted by the fact that Severus really does love ya , just wish wizards had zerox machines... then I could have made you a copy of that piece of parchment & kept one for myself as blackmail .... maugh haugh haugh!

I'm away to hide in my broom cuboard (note that it's mine now) ... still feeling sleepy due to Crookshanks .... Hermy might want him back soon though

Keep an eye out for the elusive Gollum.... perhaps we could use your scarey Pee Wee powers to help capture Gollum & take her to the spell damage ward ....

*opens cuboard door* Ahhhh, Smeagol, what are you doing in my cuboard... it's mine’s I tells you!

Lumos! Ahhhh that’s better ....

*knocks on back wall with wand, door opens to reveal a passageway, & starts sprinting down the passageway ...*

Last one into the Three Broomsticks pays for the drinks ...... May I add, Gollum, it's difficult to run with you attached to my leg. Don't worry - after a butterbeer or three, PeeWee won't look so scarey .... then again, should we mix butterbeer & polyjuice? hmmm, I feel a fun experiment coming up

What is going on for Valentines? I hear that Lockhart is going to put on some sort of show. Scary thought though he is not quite all there yet is he?

I'm in a hurry I have school tomorrow and I have to do my nails, hair and pick out a cute outfit. No rest for the Slayer. Is there a vampire named Snape here? If he is nasty, I'll just so-o have to stake him in the heart. Unless.....he is, like, cute. Well, then I just might wig out as I have been known to date a vampire or 2 or 3. Hmmmmm? Where is professor Snape? (*walks out of the ward headed for Hogwarts*) By the way, you can call me Buffy.

Hey Fawkeses, I mean Fawkes, Gina, and especially Pinky. Thanks for taking care of me while I was wiggin’ out. That was like so-o exhausting. Now, where is the castle thing called Hogwarts?

Man, I thought I'd never get away from my work! Hey, thanks for the avatar advice, Maré!

I think I made a mistake when I suggested Polyjuice week (I think it was me...) I really meant Polyjuice Month!!! These posts are really outrageous! ("Sirius Black with a shave and haircut" - *snort! guffaw!*) A truly fine representation of the comedic, creative, flamboyant, and inspired, literarily-talented-psychopaths we have here at St. Mungo's!

Poor Gina! (Rumages through my cabinet containing imported British Potions) I don't have anything to counteract the Black polyjuice effects...wait a minute...Here's something that might help...try some of my "Shirley Temple Happy Juice". Severus could never resist you as cute little Shirley Temple! (At least theoretically...)

You know, Fawkes/Snape...I think you and Flame/Smeagol/Gollum make a great duo! Well, like...like...SpongeBob and Patrick...Batman and Robin...Simon and Garfunkel...

By the way, Abby, just how did you come across my senior picture???

Ge Amy...sorry to hear about that tatoo. It might not come off, unless it's one of those wash-off kind. Of course it's not very piratey to have a wash - off tatoo! But here...*clinking sounds heard when rumages in cabinet again...*

I heard Hogwart's is infested with vampires, demons and the like. Girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

I'm relieved that it's over because I've been studying all month (mostly for Calculus--Augh!).

I can't believe I missed all the fun! I only skimmed the last posts because I didn't feel quite up to reading almost 400 posts so I only have a vague idea what's going on

Goth's seem to be on a comeback, the kids are starting to be dark again. I think that they are really just Snape fans, though. The rest of the family is watching the Lord of the Rings right now. I'll probably watch it Sunday so I can here it properly.

Gina R Snape - Jan 25, 2004 3:13 am (#2180 of 2955)

The Stranglers? Feh. 80's yes, goth no.

So, are we going for another theme week? I can't think of anything, myself. But I can tell you, Severus was getting really tetchy about the Sirius-wear. Can't say I blame him, either.

Funny, but he doesn't mind me in animagus form. I think he's a "cat person." He doesn't like dogs, though.

Abby, while I'm still a "staff" member, take this potion, it will help you be human again. Trust me..... hehehe.

I think we should really mess with the staff members’ minds and all turn into the same person. That will really raise the number of residents, don't you think?

How about an '80's week? I'll dust off all of my old cassette tapes. Depeche Mode, Talking Heads, Journey, The Clash, The Cars, Devo. I didn't start buying CD's until the 90's after I graduated college and could start to afford such luxuries.

_____________________________________

Marie E. - Jan 25, 2004 4:11 am (#2182 of 2955)

Or even albums, Viola. I didn't start buying cassette tapes until about ‘83 or ‘84, but still bought albums until 1985.

*rummages around some boxes*

Ah, here's an old Marillion album. And the Police. And...hey! How did Culture Club get in here? That was my brother's album, I swear!

Gina, I'm tired of being Buffy but this polyjuice has not quite worn off. I would very much enjoy one more week of Polyjuice Week. Great fun guys. Who said we should all turn into the same person? I like that idea. How do we coordinate it? Who should we be? Of course, we might freak out the rest of The Forum.

Gina, I love your new avatar. That is Snape isn't it? Don’t worry, Buffy would never stake but more than likely she would try to date him? Don't be jealous. I'm sure you are his number one.

Pinky, I love my darling Harry as Harry Skywalker. He is always the hero. Where was he when I was possessed by Gollum?

I'm up for an 80's week. Where did I put those CD's? I will need a lot of hair product. I will need to brush up on my 80's speak.

Istari, about your senior picture, I have my ways. . .

Um, *looks around suspiciously*, no thanks, Viola. I think it'll wear off eventually. And I think it'd be incredibly humorous to all be the same person. Who could it be? A HP character? An obscure historical figure? An Egyptologist? Who?

As for '80s week, intriguing, yet scary.

‘80's week might be fun, but I think that a lot of "residents" here were not even born until then, so it might not be fair.

Don't worry, Marye, the fun's just starting. The ‘80's are ok, but they weren't too fun for me. Maybe a ‘50's or ‘60's thing? We could contact Elvis's ghost for a concert here at St. Mungo's...

Oh, Amy, the Duran Duran boys were so cute! It's a shame Nick Rhodes feels the need to wear even MORE make-up now than he did then.

Maybe we should, er, have a fandrawing week? All our avatars could be fan drawings of favourite characters. I'll go first!

A-is-for-Amy - Jan 25, 2004 6:19 pm (#2190 of 2955)

Are we still doing ‘80's week? Don't forget the Bangles, Spandau Ballet, Asia, and Howard Jones.

I still can't change my picture, so pretend I have some fanart of Hermione until my computer genius figures something out.

I don't remember much of the ‘80s, I was born in ‘86. I wouldn't be able to participate much in an ‘80s week. Although, I could Polyjuice into Star from The Lost Boys.

How about Istari's ‘50s or ‘60s idea. I may not have been around then but I know a bit more about them than the ‘80s. Or the ‘70s! We can all wear flairs and disco suits and dance to Staying Alive by the BeeGees! Or if we do the ‘50s one we can all dress up as Sandy or Danny from Grease!

I like Gina's idea but would that be pirating if we didn't get the artist's permision? My favourite fan artist's put a notice on her site saying she's getting sick and tired of people using her work for stuff without her permission (she's thinking about closing down the site because of it!! ).

Don't know anything about the ‘80's!!??!! Have you never watched Sixteen Candles, Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Short Circuit, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventures, the Karate Kid and who could leave out Flash Dance? (A movie I never saw, but influenced my wardrobe significantly) The ‘80's were simple, like, talk like a valley girl, like you know. Like everything you say, like, starts and ends with the word like, like you know. Who could ever forget the ever popular phrase "Gag me with a spoon, Yaah!" Big hair (the heyday of the hair spray and gel companies) ripped, faded jeans (perfect since I was a college student in Chemistry lab, lots of acid holes in my jeans) and baggy clothes. (no underwear showing)

I actually still have a Police vinyl and Depeche Mode vinyl. Someday I may even show my children.

As for everyone changing into the same character, maybe we should all warm up by turning into Madame Poppy. Where has she been anyway?

Ah the eighties, too busy with my family to pull in a lot of culture. I listened a lot but no real favourates to think of. Actually I listened to a lot of classical and ‘60's and ‘70's. My prenuptual hobby, BTW, was a lot of music, played trombone in school and a bit of guitar. CD'S are great though, the sound is great. I've been to a lot of concerts in my day, saw some of the greatest, the one I missed was Led Zepplin, I had tickets but the concert was cancelled due to the death of Robert Plant's son. The best fun we had was at a Kiss concert. I sold two tickets to this real nerd, my friend said that he'd probably ask us what to do at the concert. The nerd brought his girlfriend, and after the first song he wispered out of the side of his mouth was, what do we do next. I missed most of the concert laughing so hard that the tears were running down my face. Butterbeer all around, let's put one of Boy George's hairs into some polyjuice potion and put it in the staff's tea at tea time.

Blast, you need to bring your trombone to our band! I think the St. Mungo's band should give a concert. What do you think?

The ‘80's was just about the only decade that I attended rock concerts. My last rock concert was The Pink Floyd in the very early ‘90's. I'll have to wait until my children are older, I'll go with them just to annoy them. hehehehe

I saw a woman on the train today wearing black spangled leg warmers over black leggings, with white high-heeled shoes--in 18F degree weather! That was both extremely 80's in style and horrifying to consider how freezing her feet must have been!

Whoops, the after effects of two sips of butterbeer & all those polyjuice cocktails..... hee hee.

Oh & Gina, 'twas me that called you Gina R Black ... appologies but I had eaten a lot of Gollum Jelly that day, some of Severus' personality was beginning to seep through & he was jealous *hee hee*

Talking of the ‘80's, I keep typing butterbear instead of butterbeer, the Wuzzles are very ‘80's... them & Transformers, oh & My Little Ponies.... does anyone remember them.... I loved them. I went into a shop before christmas & the ponies are back *woohoo*.... Yes indeedy the ‘80's are definitely back to haunt us..... Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (or Hero Turtles as they where known over here) are back too!

Severus is still my avatar... the polyjuice is beginning to wear off however, finding it hard to 'sever' the ties .... plus I love my hat The temp has dropped here too, & I can't find my hat & scarf, so Crookshanks was coming in handy.... will probably change sometime today though... if I get the chance.... work keeps interfering ....

I am ready to go along with what ever we decide on this week. I just turned to the ‘80's music channel to bring up some memories. Will we be changing our avatars for ‘80's week.

I still like the idea of being all being one HP character. Where do I get pictures of Madame Poppy?

And if we all take the same avatar, how did you want to call it? "confuse all the other members as much as we can week?"

We could also take one picture and add something different to it per person, like for example we take the same picture of Harry, and Pinky could add a nice jedi-sword, some-one might want a hat, or a clownsnose....

Istari Jones - Jan 26, 2004 3:48 pm (#2204 of 2955)

All of looking like Madame Pomfrey sounds good to me! Say, has Poppy been here for a while? She'd get a kick out of coming back and finding her pictures all over the place!!! (Digging through closet to find some really cheesy ‘80's clothes, only to find maternity clothes...). (My kids were born in '79, '81, and '86!)

_____________________________________

Gina R Snape - Jan 26, 2004 6:10 pm (#2205 of 2955)

Hee, that's funny Istari.

Well, most people in the ‘80's I know wore leggings and big t-shirts. So, that was not unlike a lot of maternity wear anyway!

And, yeah, where has Poppy been? I hope the St. Mungo's staff didn't take her away. I mean, she belongs on the staff, right?

_____________________________________

A-is-for-Amy - Jan 26, 2004 6:46 pm (#2206 of 2955)

Maybe we should start checking all of the closets and cabinets around here... there's no telling what Peeves and Gollum did while they were loose!

She's not under my bed! (her picture is hard to find, too!)

Well, Istari. If you read my intro from waaaaaay back at the beginning, I was a staff member until they took my wand away and committed me. I guess I enjoyed hanging out with the patients too much!

Cutest dust bunny - hee, hee...

I could have sworn I was getting treatment here... If we can't see the staff members, what does that mean?!?!? And why is there a bowl of jello floating down the hallway?!?!?

Istari - you don't happen to have one of those T-shirts that say, "You are here" with an arrow pointing to an arm of the Milky Way, do you? (That bowl of jello definitely looks lost.)

Gina - that is a great picture by the way.

Amy - it looks like you've found Poppy, or is the polyjuice affecting my vision?

Regarding ‘80's week - what's so wierd about 5 finger hair, the grunge look, and Duran Duran? (and Pee-Wee Herman or Wierd Al for that matter?) OK, OK -never mind. I know I'm paranoid but you do know it's a huge marketing ploy for nostalgic Gen-X'ers to buy Smurfs for their kids. Scary to think about it all coming back again just because they are being brought up with the same cartoon roll-models. In the ‘80's I swore I would never wear flared-leg pants again, now I'm swearing never to wear tapered legs. I guess I'll just have to wear robes - what a classic look. Yep. Me & Archie... too cool, as usual...

The Wizarding World has always been sort of Sixties in appearence, so the clothes won't matter much. Maybe we'll get Snape a ruffed shirt, a la Prince, me I'm going with plain black robes, with a white fedora. The song of the eighties was Forever Young by Alphaville. But the seventies music will always be in my heart. Best song Werewolves of London, ahooh.

Though, I do still really like "Confuse all the other forum members" week. I'm mean enough to get a kick out of that. I also like Maré's idea of everyone having the same pic but with a personal touch.

Hey, I used to have care bear avatar once, have no idea where I left it though. Probably got lost when my computer crashed.

I already got an idea for a picture, since I was born in 1980, I am very eighties myself (in a way). I'll see if I can get my hands on a baby picture

If not I'll try to refind my carebear, then we can "shine" together Fawkes. (If you don’t mind, I could also find a My Little Pony, I used to have some when I was younger.... hmmm, you know, i might still have them somewhere in a dark place up in the attic, should check that out.)

(Bye the way, what is the english expression for when the carebears all go and sent rays of lights out their belly?)

Why stare? You stare with your eyes, not your belly.

Hee hee, in another, ahem 'spare moment' at work.... I Googled Care Bear Stare... seems that’s what exactly what it was....
Each bear and cousin has a special power, related to the symbol on its tummy. When they unite, they can use the Care Bear Stare to beam good energy at their enemies http://www.80scartoons.net/toons/carebears.html

....hmmm, at least I'm not completely mental....( says she who is currently a patient in St Mungo’s...)

Any staff positions open at present?.... I need a career change..... I could be the completely useless orderly who lets the patients run riot, whilst she surfs the web all day *not too different from my current role* ...

Call me weird, but a "Care Bear Stare" doesn't sound like a good thing. They beam good energy at their enemies? Sounds very very strange to me. Wouldn't they want to beam good energy at their friends and family? Or is it some kind of psychic conversion to turn their enemies good? Oh My God!!!! It's the Imperius curse!!!!!! Care Bears are Death Eaters in disguise. Run for your lives!!!!!!

Green Light Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, I'm scared of Carebears, my childhood has been ruined (kidding!) I'm grumpy bear... purple light .... watch out Ms Granger... maugh haugh haugh!

(hmm, I appear to have taken on a decidedly evil persona since arriving here at St Mungo’s.... I like it .... )

Talking of St Mungo’s, would anyone like to volunteer to be a reference (referee) on my application form for St Mungo’s staff? However I might not need it, with my new Care Bear powers... I can just 'stare' at the interview panel ..... traa laa laa.

Care Bears were Death Eaters in disguise!!??!! I burst out laughing just thinking of Lucius Malfoy dressing up in a Tender Heart Bear costume and going about on Death Eater business.

I definitely vote for both ‘80's and “everyone alike” week. I have been envisioning Snape wearing neon colors!! And dancing to Cyndi Lauper music. In college I got my boyfriend (now husband) and all of my roommates to start watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. My nephew got me started.

Oh! The Smurfs! How could I have ever forgotten the Smurfs! (maybe I performed a memory charm on myself!) Everything was so Smurfy.

Smurfs are Death Eaters - wasn't one of them called Voldemort? You can still get Smurfs in Kinder Eggs, although sometimes you need an engineering degree to put those things together.

Fawkes if you need a reference, no problem we can just get Dean to scribble you one. Lockheart will also sign one for you, he knows joined up writing now.

Just FYI, I saw Rainbow Brite dolls at Walmart last night. My daughter Lexie said, “Mommy this is from your old cartoon.” Thank you dear. Back in my mom's storage unit she has my collection of plastic Smurf figures. I had close to fifty of the little suckers, including two of the mushroom houses.

I don't remember a Smurf named Voldemort. There was Gargamel and Azriel but no Voldemort.

Liz, I totally remember Popples. Those were some of the weirdest things I've ever seen in my life. What were they exactly?

As usual when it's mentioned, I have the Smurf song stuck in my head. But when it gets stuck in my head it has words. "Everyone loves the Smurfs, la lala la laaa!" Sigh.

I have the Popples theme tune in my head now!

Those were some of the weirdest things I've ever seen in my life. What were they exactly?

They were popples! I just remember they used to have pouches on their backs which they could pull round underneath them and climb into, then hop around. They were cute, though.

I am at college right now. My media studies teacher isn't in and she left us instructions to research the film The Lost Boys. But we're not being suvervised, so blow that, I'm hanging around the forum for a while! I don't think anyone else is doing the work, either.

A-is-for-Amy - Jan 28, 2004 1:40 pm (#2242 of 2955)

I don't remember the popples, but they sound kind of creepy! I only know about the Snorks because they still show it on the Boomerang channel on satellite!

Anyone have any more Aquanet? I can't get my hair quite big enough, and I've run out! Extra super-hold please! The bigger the hair, the closer to God, you know!

I was born in 1986 so I remember very little about the ‘80s but I used to love the smurfs.

Lol Liz, I saw your avatar on the chat thread & said... oh cool, a Popple.... so I remember them... I also remember some plastic creatures of sorts with a hollow belly & a keys to open them to put stuf inside, they where called secret keepers (I think) ... I asked around at work, but no one remembers them, they think I made them up!

Wasn't fond of the Smurfs, got into trouble in school once for doing a Gargamel impression, well it was in the middle of lessons however.... perhaps that’s why I don't like them too much.... Interesting fact (well not really), but sometimes in Ireland if someone has the surname Murphy (hmmm, not too common, that one ) They get the nickname Smurph .... don't ask

Abby.... Save Ferris! Woohoo, I'm liking this ‘80's week.

Blast, ta for the reference, & Lockhart was only too pleased to give me an autograph .... got stuck talking to him for ages thought! I will apply to St Mungo’s for a job now.... but I can't see me lasting, I enjoy doing nothing too much Now where was I, oh yes.... Care Bears Stare ..... Tada.... just got a job as an orderly .... no wait.... Staff nurse.... Hmmm, I like this white coat!

What about Cabbage Patch dolls - weren't they something? A friend of mine is nicknamed Patch in honor of the dolls, and has a face only a mother could love. Good sense of humour about it though.

If I remember right, Cabbage Patch dolls came out near the end of the ‘70's & survived into the ‘80's (but I could be remembering wrong). Now, Garbage Pail Kids on the other hand... I can't think of one without the other. They were very ‘80's.

“Ferris Beuler's Day Off” was one of my favorite movies! Right up there with Lady Hawk, Wierd Science, and The Last Star Fighter.

Sigh. They don't say anything about remembering the ‘80's like they do with the ‘70's (which I DO remember, just not as well).

Edit: I just looked up on the web that Cabbage Patch Dolls came out in 1982. It just seemed like they were out for years prior.

I was never into “Ferris Bueller's Day Off,” but I must have seen it five times. I don't know why but every time I go to a party and we start talking about watching a movie somebody pops it in. I can't believe it's still so popular with teenagers.

Liz, you can point out to your teacher that you are researching the Lost Boys by being here with us. We are informing you about the era in which the Lost Boys were filmed so that you can better understand the context in which it was first viewed. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Ticker, Ladyhawke and Real Genius were my favorite films of the era.

Cabbage Patch dolls: I'm amazed at how often I still see those things around. I was too old to want one when they first came out. They were the first "major Christmas toy rush" that I remember. People would pay over $150.00 for one so they could give it to their child on Christmas Day. In 1982 that was a lot of money!

Now, don't shoot the messenger, but...remember a while back we really got off a little crazy discussing a non-Harry Potter topic about He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named (*coughAlanRickmancough*) and were thoroughly Kippendoed and told to keep the discussion to HP items because after all this was the HP Lexicon?

Not to kill a great party, but before we get Kippendoed again we might want to consider keeping our theme weeks, well, more HP focused? (Ducks before I get Stupefied...Besides, I'd rather get Kippendoed for discussing AR rather than Popples or Smurfs...sorry, he has a nicer voice...)

I hereby declare this week - for what is left of it - as "Who Can Out-Potter the most Potty Member of us All!"

Without looking in your books or in the lexicon, how many life details can you recall about Harry? You are allowed to check into the Hairy - er - Harry ward just down the hall. Let's each list one detail at a time. I'll start:

(1) Harry has a lightening bolt shaped scar on his forehead.

Harry turned his teacher's hair blue in school.

Harry's hair kept growing back after Aunt Petunia cut it off.

Harry found himself on top of the school to keep Dudley and his gang from tormenting him.

Snape doesn't like Harry.

Harry doesn't like Snape Smile

Hey! How about we turn the discussion into what the wizarding world was like in the ‘80's. Did wizards wear neon colored robes and have brightly dyed hair. Did they use spells to have "big" hair? Were the Care Bears really Death Eaters in disguise? Did the Smurfs leak from the WW into muggle society?

Harry was born in the ‘80's right? Were his parents "yuppies" in the WW?

Harry details: Harry released a python on Dudley

Viola, your post suspiciously sounds like you intend to actually reason through possible theories. If you want to start a thread devoted to discussing the culture of the wizarding world in the ‘80's, by all means do! But within St. Mungo's please keep as close as possible to complete insanity. We'll all feel much better if we don't have to actually think while we're in here. *forcefeeds a canary cream to Viola*

Harry has no siblings. :-(

I don't have to think to draw connections about strange '80s memorabilia and HP. Stuff like that comes to me naturally. Besides, any wish of reliving the '80s seems like insanity to me.

*hands Amy some Aquanet*

Also, thanks to all who wish to save Ferris. It's greatly appreciated. By the way, Fawkes, I had a secret keeper! It was kind of a mini-secret keeper. I remember it was pale blue and had a big purple heart-shaped rhinestone and inside it had the head and arms and legs of a little doll that could be flipped out making the blue part the body. It was very strange. I haven't thought of that in years, thanks for the flashback.

Harry was stuck up a tree for a while because of Aunt Marge's dog.

Harry cared deeply for Sirius.

I have not been able to get into ‘80's week but I have found everyone's reminiscences entertaining. My favorites were Cindi Lauper (I'm a fun kind of girl.), AHA (one hit wonder), and the Tompson Twins. Even though, I was in my (*gasps*) 30's, I had really big hair. I had not used hair gel since the 60's. What about shoulder pads? Uh!!! I remember not being able to find a trench coat without pads. Now they hang, unworn in my closet because of those ridiculous pads.

Ooooooh! Remember how cute the guys were in their tight jeans & parachute pants? I'm betting Sirius had a pair or two. Oh yes! Big hair, big shoulders, little shoes, tight legs, button down everything - very stylish. You know, it was quite a relief when styles relaxed & everything didn't require ironing, hairspray, or thick make-up. (Although the dress length button-down shirt over leggings was pretty comfy...)

(Refocuses her reminiscences sluggishly, wondering what was in the jello that could interrupt her overactive HP obsession...)

Harry dreamt on his first night in Hogwarts, that he had been sorted into the wrong house & should be re-sorted into Slytherin. How did I miss that until I just re-read it last week? Must have been pushed out of my mind by imagining Alan Rickman doing the moonwalk.

Alan Rickman doing the moonwalk? *snort*

Before Harry saw the snake attack Mr Weasley, he was dreaming that Cho was having a go at him, saying that Cedric had given her lots of chocolate frog cards and Harry hadn't, and Hermione suggested Harry give her his Firebolt, to which he said that he couldn't because Umbridge had it and he'd only come to the DA room to put up Christmas baubles shaped like Dobby's head.

Harry bought a whole bunch of socks to give to Dobby for helping him in the triwizard tournament.

By the way, who made up that last batch of polyjuice potion? I think they must have put something in it to make all of us have ‘80's flashbacks. Either that or it was just all of the talk of putting hairs in our potions brought back memories of the "big hair" days.

Attention all inmates of St. Mungo's! This is an official request as a moderator on the Harry Potter Lexicon FanFiction Forum to stay on topic! What is on topic for St. Mungo's you may ask? If you don't know, I highly encourage you to read past sections of this thread (you don't have to read all 2000+ posts, but it would make for an entertaining evening!). If you want to discuss the '80's, particular actors, trends, or anything of that sort, there is a great chat thread on the main forum where you are welcome to do so. But please, here in St. Mungo's, keep it on topic! I instituted the "name things about Harry" in an attempt to pull it back on topic, however, even that contest is just a little too organized. Let us return to the uncertainty of knowing who among us is staff, why Clyffe is brooding, whatever happened to the purple sloth, and above all, don't eat the jello!

A Keeper, another Chaser, and a Seeker OR Chaser, (whatever Ticker doesn't want to be...Oh, thanks for the "fuel", Ticker ^_^) So, what shall we use for the Quaffle, Bludgers, and Snitch?

Okay. I will probably be censored for this, as it is not going to say anything about flying bedpans, lime jello, or whatever else goes on here.

I finally caught up today, after just one week of not checking in, I had 350 posts to read. Maybe it was longer then one week after all.

And how could you??? I MISSED ‘80's week! Everyone who knows or remembers me around here knows that the ‘80's is my thing! MINE!

Right, we have:

Tinker and me as Chasers, Gina and Lindsay as Beaters, Pyro as Seeker and Marie as commentator. Viola, which do you want to be, Keeper or Ref? We also need a third Chaser.

Oh no! Abby missed one of the doxies! Gina, look out, it's going right for you!!!

We can play the MoM, they're a bunch of wimps, we have the advantage because we will do anything to win. Our bedpans are superior to their brooms and we have the jello to throw at them. (Just kidding but if they hear this it might give us an advantage.) Go Maniacs.

Purple Sloth suit. It has to be a Purple Sloth in honour of Lime Jello.

Pyro where are you in the Great White North? We have to have a pratice session sometime, I think that Lucius's place would be O.K. because he's out at the moment. We could have multiple mascot's and really confuse the other teams. Gina would Snape Beverages sponsor us? What about team colours? Purple and lime green seem right. If the Quidditch team doesn't work out, we could always form our own kind of Motorcycle gang and terrorize everybody. We could make the Hogshead our clubhouse. People won't be talking as much about Voldielock's as much because the Purple Sloth's will get all the headlines in the Daily Prophet.

How about we have a warm up game with the staff? Or if we have enough players to create a second team, so that Istari doesn't have to sit out? We are in a mental ward right? Can't we have imaginary players?

Abby, can I borrow your bagpipes to use as a whistle?

(btw, Abby, I received my first issue of Archaeology Magazine yesterday!)

I don't mind sitting out - I was just being whiny. I'd rather watch, anyway. I'm afraid of heights, you see. I like going fast on a bedpan or broom, I just don't like going up!

Oh, 'Newt, we did have a motorcycle gang at one time. It was the Gnarly Vampire Motorcycle club. We had black leather jackets and everything! Kip was the head guy.

Hey Istari, want to form the Management Team with me? We could also be the coaching staff. In the first option, we get all the money, with the second we get to drill everybody into push ups and stuff. Heh,heh.
Both sound good to me!

And don't worry, Penny, since ‘80's week never got officially closed, you could pretend we are still having one. I still see (what’s his name? Matthew Broderick) hanging around. Just make sure you have enough jello to throw with and all will be fine.

And I vote for Squid as mascot!

I'm back..... yes indeedy! I escaped for a few days, after some of the staff realised that I was not sane enough to be on staff. I slipped off down the secret passage in the broom cupboard & off into Hogsmeade, where I had a fun weekend tip-toe'ing through the tulips seeing as it's spring, or perhaps I imagined those... well I did have some jelly on the way out!

I was apprehended salivating over a tin of HoneyDukes best chocolate in the window of said sweetshop in Hogsmeade. Oh it's nice to be back, I was bored of wandering around without any galleons, sickles or knuts! I do think the lasso was a bit much though... all they had to do was wave some lime green jelly in front of my eyes

I brought you all back a pressie... *opens tin of Honeydukes chocolates* Honest, I did pay for them

Sorry I missed try outs for the Quidditch team, but I'm all set to be the Number One St Mungo’s Maniacs fan.... Go the Maniacs.... *waves a purple & lime green flag frantically & stuffs mouth with chocolate*

But I'll offer my services as a reserve beater/chaser/seeker/keeper However, if I don't stop eating this chocolate..... my broom won't make it off the ground..... or should I say, flying bedpan....

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, oh this is fun

Oh it's good to be back *chomp chomp* oh eating & flying, not a good combo.... please someone... have some chocolate ... *burp* oh excuse me

Liz, you've been the most organized of our bunch. I put my vote in for you as captain.

Welcome back Fawkes! & thanks for the chocolate. It seems to have spread warmth through my limbs (much needed these days) and has helped ease the tension from whatever that bad memory was (‘80's week? - hands Penny the rest of her chocolate & pats her Rainbow Bright - there, there...)

Alas, earwax, Istari! Not on the Maniacs? Do you still work on bedpans? I attached a urinal/jello-shooter to mine and the aim seems to be a bit off. It hit the quaffle Amy threw my way, & has made catching it a bit more tricky.

Push-ups Maré? I assume you're talking about the frozen dessert.

We could have multiple mascots, they could cause lots of mayhem so we could bend the rules just a bit. The goals could be toilet seats.

Since I am the ref, I will call whatever fouls I feel like. I just want to warn everyone that I have a tendency to chase butterflies around the field instead of watching the game.....but you never know when I will start paying attention again!!!!!

*Hovers on her bedpan as it begins spinning quickly like a UFO*

Yes, a song would be nice. Something on the order of "Weasley is Our King", perhaps? We can't really have a school song. Hmmm... There's an old ‘50's song that went "They're coming to take me away, Ha Ha!" that would fit us pretty well. Or "Everyone Loves a Nut". Maybe we could make up a song that would fit to the tune of Gilligan's Island...*Shoots bubble bath water through the fire hose at 'Newt*

Swoops & grabs it ... that’s Quidditch!

Currently under negotiations to record in Diagon Lane Studios (off Diagon Alley). All proceeds will go to St Mungo’s Hospital!

Backing singers are also needed.... oh & the entire team will have to sing too...

Casting Call - for persons to appear in obligatory video.... During the singing, it will show the 'choir' in the recording studio, ala charity song style! However in the break between the verses, the video will feature several shots of Maniacs swooping & looping, diving & jiving through the air on their bed pans.. with Marie providing a bit of commentry ....

Fawkes goes off into dream world & imagines video
.... Shows Captain Liz Mann leading the team unto the pitch! Shot of Ticker & Amy passing the quaffle & spinning round on their bedpans, Marie’s commentry (MC) "she shoots she SCORES ... & the crowd goes wild!!!" Few shots of Gina & Linsay showing the bludger who’s boss.... MC "Take that you pesky bludgers..." Blast makes a spectacular save.. MC "....and ... He’s saved it, Blast has saved the goal!!!!!" Shots of Jackie leaping for joy in her Giant Squid costume... whilst the cheerleaders Emily, Pinky, Severus & Fawkes wave the poms poms, as Abby complete with tartan kilt, strikes up the band for a quick blast of ‘Cus they’re maniacs, Maniacs on the Quidditch pitch... ‘ As sung by Istari as she sprays the opposition with the water hose... picture fades out & back to next verse of song. Team are joined in studio this time by Severus, as he sings his heart out & winks for the camera...


so then….. any volunteers

Yippee!!! Great song.

Ooooh, our cheerleader looks so good! You know, it was Fawkes' idea, but Severus didn't put up a fight at all. Amazing, right?!

I had to sew that skirt by hand at home. Too bad we couldn't talk him into shaving his legs, though.

::shows another bludger who's boss:: If I knock a satsuma out of an opponent's nose with a bludger, does that disqualify them from the team?

Hmmm, that depends... 'cus essentially you've cured them... so they really should be discharged.... but if the bludger (or ahem Bat ) causes a concusion, so then they would still be a patient ... *dizzy from all the thinking*

Emm, you know, I don't know *checks quidditch rule book & realises there are no rules* Oh well ... just make sure you don't concuss them then

Great job on the skirt Gina, you got the colours just right .... Severus looks a treat!

Sing up... "everyone's a fruit & nut case...."

Good thing all I have to do is keep track of the quaffle - I'd never be able to spot the snitch!

*Makes a long pass to Liz behind a surprised opponent holding a tangerine in her hand. It looks like she's debating whether or not to put it back... dang - I thought I was crazy...*

As the ref, I say that any of our opponents that get the satsumas knocked out of their noses is officially disqualified. They can't be in their ward without them.

Istari, I want to thank you for keeping this a clean game! hehehe

Man, some of those posts were funny! You go away, come back the next day and there's about 45 new posts to read!! I can't be a captain who's behind on what's going on with the team! Thanks for electing me captain, by the way.

I love the song, Fawkes! And Severus as cheerleader.

Okay, team, I've booked us our first official game, against the the Hogwarts House Elves. They may be small but that makes flying on bed pans a lot easier, so watch out, okay? Maybe if we do well the Maniacs will get into the league!! So get down to that pitch and make me proud! (You might have to sneak out through the secret passage behind the pastrie stand in the tearoom, the staff don't know about this Quiddich thing and if they find out, we're dead). Where's Poppy, by the way? I hope she won't tell on us to the other staff.

*claps loudly* Okay, people, lets fly those bedpans straight, those HouseElves are a good team, but nine out of ten times we'll beat them, let's not let today be that one time they beat us! *clapping crazily* Ready! Everyone grab a partner and find a quaffle..uh, scratch that, reverse it... *jumping up and down, blowing insanely on my whistle as I try to give orders* Now you have to **TWEET** fly in formation like **TWEET** this *shimmies around, arms and legs flapping* **TWEET** Good, people, good!

Unfortunately, I'm failing miserably since I've never cheered before in my life and am quite uncoordinated.***

Go, go, Maniacs, go, go! Way to go Gina! Sniv--I mean Severus says he's proud! Keep it up Liz! *CRASH* Ref, ref! Fowl on the Elfs! They are putting the Quaffle through their own goal hoops! Oh...wait a minute...that's good for us...Keep it up Elfs, you're doing good! Now where is that commentator? I can't remember the score.(Pleading insane again.)

Hey! To win against House Elves, all we have to do is distract them by asking for food.... Just as Winky is about to score, ask her to get you an eclair or some butterbeer.... she'll zoom off to the kitchens, and the game will be in the bag!

Wanna see me do it again?

At any rate, I was gonna save this for a surprise, but, well, I just couldn't keep a secret any longer. Thanks to Mr. Lcius Malfoy's credit card, he has graciously purchased a matching set of gold plated Flush-E-Z 5000 bedpans for the St. Mungo's Maniacs (hands one to everyone on the team) Poo-gardium leviosa!

So, can I play now, Coach? Huh? Can I?

OK, How about ...

House elves - just ask them to loos, yeehaw! Hey - anybody want a Doughnut? Brought some good ones, just watch out for the ones with jello in them. Butterbeer all around! What a workout. The great thing about bedpans is that you can reflect the light into your apponent's eyes.

_____________________________________

Ticker - Feb 4, 2004 12:31 am (#2391 of 2955)

The quaffle is passed from Amy to Liz to Ticker & back to Liz. She's flying circles around Zippy the hospital elf, er,.. wait a minute... something appears to be wrong with her bedpan. Liz passes the quaffle to Ticker and now Ticker is flying in circles. Oh no folks! There appears to be some tampering of some sort going on! Cheerleader Snape is yelling for the ref, who is, yes indeed, still chasing butterflies down the field...

Ticker chooses to hang on to the quaffle while the House Elves begin to follow her. Now Amy is in and has sent Zippy for a butterbeer. That's one down. She sends Panky downfield for an eclair. The Maniac's offence is really throwing the House Elves into confusion - (something these team members are very good at, I might add...)

Oh no! Here comes a bludger. It hits Liz on the shoulder & bounces off. What could that mean? That bludger is flying a little strangely if you ask me. Here's Gina with a huge smile on her face. She pelts the bludger at Jinky who barely has time to react. The bludger breaks in two and 1/2 of it spins towards the House Elf seeker. He reaches up to block and what's that on his hand?!? Yes, it does appear to be a sock!

The House Elf team is in shock. Some of the players are actually tring to be hit by bludgers... Lindsay is back in the game with a great hit towards Boppy. Oooooh - Boppy takes it square in the face, and that bludger apparently is still a bludger.

It's up to Pyro now. The House Elf team's seeker is disqualified with clothes. Pyro looks confused. What is that? Jello in her hand? Oh for crying out loud, which elf gave her that?

A strange play by the Maniac's keeper, Blast, (who apparently is bored since Ticker is still holding the quaffle). He has something in his hand. Is that the snitch? He's flying straight for Pyro... and the hand off... yes! Pyro is in posession of the snitch. The game is over. 170 to 10. The St. Mungo's Maniacs win!!!!!

Er, well, I have a bit of a confession... see, I was just sitting in the corner over there watching the fantastic game, and I got to wondering what would happen if you forcefed a canary cream to the snitch. So, after the game, I used this handy wand I found lying around at the nurses station and charmed a mouth on the snitch, fed it a canary cream... and... well.... I didn't actually see what happened after that, but it was very yellow, and flew very fast....

Well, I'm not sure that went totally legal. I don't think keepers are allowed to catch the snitch. *Looks in her 3478 pages thick manual* Hmmm, if you don't tell them, neither will I! *thrusts manual aside without looking*
THUD...

Erm well, I think we can go on vacation together, Aruba any-one?
We could have cocktails on the beach in preparation of our match against the Aruban bedpan quidditch team.Can any-one look up who that would be?

And Istari are you bribing your way into the team? If so.. it worked!

Now if everybody gathers themselves, the canary-snitch, the canary-assistent coach and the rather unconscious Fawkes (I knew I had to get the pocket version of that manual) we are off!

Where were we going again?

Groan..... *little birdies float round Fawkes head* Hey who threw that & right in the middle of my victory dance.... Ohhh I feel dizzy! ..... *Maré suddenly becomes very interested in the canary-snitch chirping in her hand & hums loudly... la la la!

Right then *steadies head with hands & swats away pesky birdies* where was I... Oh yeah *claps hands & jumps up & down in a very peppy way*.... Victory Pyramid guys!!! *Abby comes bounding over, bagpipes in hand .... "Pyramid? Where where?"

*Pinky & Emily assure Abby that it's not a real pyramid & get her to rope in the remaining band members to help with the pyramid... Pinky & Emily & some random band members then hoist Abby up unto their shoulders.... Fawkes then climbs up... followed by Istari, Liz, Gina, Amy, Pyro, Viola, Linsay, Ticker, Meg, Maré, Blast, Marie & Jackie in her squid costume, each taking their place* Ouch Liz, your foot is in my eye.... ouch Amy.... thats my hair Gina..... watch where you put those elbows... Maré, put the book down... stop poking people with those bagpipes Abby & Marie.... whats with the microphone... *Pyramid wobbles slightly* Woahhhh, this doesn't feel very stable guys......

*Severus strides over, & uses a nifty levitating charm to take his place atop the pyramid.... which gives another wobble & lurches forward a bit ... then back .... Pinky & Emily at the bottom are now going bright pink..... GASP.... Can't take anymore..... Fawkes not quite recovered from the 'book incident' takes another dizzy spell .... & thus the entire pyramid collapses... all except Severus, who's still performing his levitating charm.....*

Impedimentia.... Yells 'ol Sev, but it's too late.... we're falling too fast.... "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"

*Boing*..... YEEHAAA, we're saved.... we fell unto the reminants of Pyros jelly..... *Boing*...... so we're all ok.... *Boing*... ok ok, how do we stop this.... *Boing* emmmm HELP! *Boing* Istari (still with hose in hand), turns the water on & washes way the jelly...... *THUMP* Ahhh thats better ... *Pyro tucks into the jelly again as Meg, Blast & Linsay tries to drag her away, but end up eating some too. Marie is too busy laughing to resume post-match commentry.... Viola then blows the whistle to try to restore some order. Marie " Annnnd, *giggle* it's all *giggle* over folks.... *giggle* MANIACS WIN".....

M .... A .... N ..... I ...... A .... C ...... S


Ok Maré.... where are going? An all expenses trip to The Leaky Cauldron with scenic views of Muggle London? Bed & breakfast at the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade... or, three nights in the Forbidden Forest.....

So let's get practicing! Get in a circle! We're going to start off throwing the Quaffle to each other. Right, Blast, catch! Good, now pass it on to Pyro. Nice one, now to Linsday... Pyro, get that jello off your hands! The Quaffle's sticking to them!

I have to spend some time with my little ones, my wife is in the hospital and I might not be able to post very much. St. Mungo's is like a second home but when you are pulling a double shift as Mom and Dad time is a precious commodity. So I'll be here in spirit if I can't be in person.

Hi guys, I've been enjoying the match...some git in a Wimbourne Wasps jersey out front pulled me aside and sold me some tickets in Row X for a galleon -- was that a good buy? The only seat marked "X" that I could find was on top of the X-ray machine, so that's where I've been. Took me awhile to get down to the pitch after the win. Man, I wish I had better binoculars!

Hey pyro, your avatar totally rocks, dude! I've been watching that movie at least once a day ever since my 2-year-old discovered it. Righteous! "Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming..."

Muggle hospitals can be very scary, with their stitches and "doctors" and the please-men guarding the place.

Here I am thinking that I won't be able to post very much, but I have to do something between loads of laundry. A yellow submarine sounds good. Maybe we could check out an Octopus's garden while we're down there. Thanks for the well wishes, it really means a lot. As my wife says, she's the only person in the world who can put up with me. Just because I'm a little goofy, Abby how about some Yellow Submarine on the pipes.

Hmmm, I thought it was a jello submarine. *shrugs*

Wow, Denise. You scared me for a minute. The look of your post startled me! All red and attention-getting.

We posted around 2000 that the thread would be up at 3000, but thanks for the reminder.

Hey Denise... nice to see you are all enjoying Florida...

Jello Submarine... hee hee, 'tis funny how you guys say jello & I say jelly.... *giggles*

Might be a bit dangerous to have a submarine made of Jelly....

Actually, thread won't make it to 3000 since there have been deleted posts. I am mulling over some other options and will present them in a seperate thread later today to the residents about some suggestions. Keep an eye peeled out for that thread this evening (when a screaming 2-year-old is not tugging on my arm)

Ouch. Peeling my eyes sounds painful. Or is that a cosmetic procedure like a skin peel?

Thanks for the heads up.

btw, Fawkes, that jello/jelly discussion comes up every now and again! I think we are all just sticking with 'jello' because most of the forum members seem to be from the States. *shrugs*

It's funny how many words are like that. "jumper/sweater" is a big one. On the chat thread you said "ta" and in the States it seems people don't know that means "thank you" (nor cheers for that matter). "ta" means "bye" and "cheers" is for toasting a drink in the States. I say "cheers" all the time in shops and such, just out of habit, and people look at me funny.

It's confusing enough to land you in St. Mungo's!

Denise, you’re the best mom in the world, icecream for breakfast. Hope your family enjoys their vacation, after the year they went through they earned it. Bye the way can the sub be made of yellow jello? It would be a bit shaky but we would fit in well with the Jellyfish.

Hmm...Lime Jelly doesn't have the same ring to it that Lime Jello has. *Blinks and looks around* What? Did I say something wrong?

Well, here I am in my ward, watching "Cry-Baby" and sulking. WHO IS THAT -censored- CRANE FOR?!

*eats Valentine's Smarties** My mouth is very sore. I had an orthodontist appointment yesterday and they put brackets on my back molars...OUCH!! I can't talk or anything. It huuuurrrts...

Oh, and in case you're wondering, I'm going to camp on Friday and I'll be there until Sunday. Whoot!

Pyro you poor thing, just drink lots of liquids, it will keep you from dehydrating.

I'm brand new, so don't hurt me! I'm already stuck in the Gilderoy Lockheart ward. That man! He wants to sign everything I have! Actually he kind of scares me. Going on and on about some Basilisk! I mean really! I hope they move me into the Peeves room. I could do with some funnies. Does any one have spell repairer? My spells are all wrong and the break as soon as I cast them.

You're going to camp? I hope it's warmer there than it is here!!!!

Sabby, your spells aren't working because that isn't a wand.....

OOOOH! I won a muggle auction on ebay for a whole case of Fizzing Whizbees from the UK, and they arrived. Mmmmmmmmm....fizzy!

Blast, best wishes to your wife & good luck as Mr Mom.

Pyro, I just got back from the dentist 10 minutes ago & let me just say, I feel your pain. Hope camp is a good distraction for you.

Shakes Sabby's hand & hands off a rubber chicken. You might have better spell luck with this. We think it might be a wand. Just stay away from the jello you should be fine.

Oh man, where's my moving buddy - I need a hand to hold. The squid helped me last time, but I haven't seen him around lately. I'm getting flashbacks of Fallout Shelter insanity... there were some pretty good times though...

Hey! Speaking of ordering things, I had this shipped here to St. Mungo's. (Opens a 15 foot tall crate with a life-sized chocolate hippogriff statue in it.) My compulsion to eat chocolate became overwhelming as I re-read PoA and I knew you guys would understand.

Gina R Snape - Feb 5, 2004 7:58 pm (#2443 of 2955)

Sabby, when they admit you to St. Mungo's they take your wand away and give you pencil. But some of us have found ways to get around that.

Oooooh, Ticker! A giant chocolate hippogriff? Is it solid or hollow?

I want the head! I want the head!

Blast - Feb 5, 2004 7:59 pm (#2444 of 2955)

A giant chocolate Hippogriff , don't insult it or the chocolate turns very bitter. Save me a drumstick. Is that a chocolate Hippogriff or a chocolate covered one? What would you feed a chocolate hippogriff - suger mice? Blast is getting very sleepy there's something in the chocolate, Gina is Snape missing any sleeping potion? I think that someones trying to sabatoge the quidditch team.z z z z z z z z

Solid chocolate hippogriff, Gina.

Blast, you're right about not insulting it (hee, hee - bitter chocolate), but I've eaten an entire foot and I'm pinging off the walls. Do you think it could be the double duty you're pulling that's making you so sleepy? You aren't using a Time-turner are you? I've read all about those...

**pulls out wand** Don't ask me how I got this. You really, REALLY don't want to know.

Ooh! The Jello Submarine! I went onto the St Mungo's thread on one of the EZboard forums, and everyone was in it then! At the bottom of a paddling pool! Let's get it out again!

All right, everyone, all aboard! We're heading for Aruba! Who's driving, by the way?

Valantine's week sounds cool! I won't be doing anything for it in real life.

(I've really got to start checking this thread during the day, it's getting ridiculous! Too many posts to read! )

I don't know what Severus has in mind for us for Valentine's Day. Last year I got a heart-shaped locket with his picture in it as a present. Isn't he just SUCH a sweetie?

If the sub doesn't work, we could always take the Durnstrang ship.

My wife is home. No heartattack , but she does have Angina, so we have to clear the house of chocolate, no caffine either, so lets have a St. Mungo's pre-valentine Chocolate-a-thon. If you put some in the lime jello, it makes a tasty and dangerous pudding.
