Hogwarts, Hogwarts, hoggy, warty Hogwarts!

Teach us something, please.

Whether we are old and gray or young with scabby knees.

Our heads could do with filling with some interesting stuff;

For now they're bare and full of air, dead flies, and bits of fluff!

So teach us things worth knowing, bring back what we've forgot.

Just do your best, we'll do the rest and learn until our brains all rot!

All right, then. At the meeting the word "ideas" generated a full three minutes of unintelligable babbling from every single member of the club. Thus, this post. If you have an idea for what you want the club to do, post a comment. Thanks!
P.S. As of today, there are 4 DAYS until Deathly Hallows.

Rules rules rules

Well my dears, before we embark upon this flighty temptress, adventure in the Hogwarts Club, we would like to lay down the law and specify what is expected of you.
As Hogwarts students, you are required to be kind and courteous to the house members around you. There will be absolutely no kicking, scratching, biting, tearing of hair, spitting or other such atrocities. Silly incantations and wand waving are, however, applauded with gusto. (We beg you to judge wisely your use of the unforgivable curses. Killing will be punished severely; see one of the founders that's not Kristen).
Heads of houses/founders will be given all due respect. Food is welcomed and in fact embraced warmly, as you will be if you bring it.
For your knowledge, Katherine is also the founder of the Order of the Pheonix, Jane is overseeing Dumbledore's Army,  Maren advocates S.P.E.W, and Kristen heads the Inquisitorial Squad.
House elves will be treated with respect, though you will please refrain from sharing your food with them.
Fiery discussions of and loud quoting from book and movie are heavily advocated and in fact required within range of founders. If you have something bad to say about the Wizarding World, go talk to Kristen.
Oh yes. Please be sure to forget your muggle apparel on days of the club meetings or quidditch matches.

Welcome, Everyone!

We, the founders of the Hogwarts Club, are so excited you're here! Our first meeting is THIS FRIDAY, November 15, in Mrs. Van Orden's room during lunch. Come for the Sorting Ceremony, to sign up for special positions (Quidditch, anyone?) and to have an input on future activities. In the meantime, here's how the Sorting's going to work: we're including a link to an online sorting test. By using this, you can actually be sorted into a House by personality, rather than arbitrarily. You do not need to do this, but it's a really good and accurate test, and will only take you about fifteen minutes. Club members who don't have their test results at Friday's meeting will be sorted at random into one of the four houses. Here is the link: http://www.personalitylab.org/tests/ccq_hogwarts.htm
We hope to see you all on Friday.
Nitwit, blubber, oddment, tweak.
