Quidditch recap

Quidditch last week was a disappointment. A lot of fun, but a disappointment. We lost to the Slytherins, 50-180. I scored two goals, and was seconds away from a third when one of the Slytherins found the Snitch.

I still have the goal-scoring balls, and the spare. I'm not sure what to do with them, but they've been fun to play with. They're stuffed with scraps from the big Transfiguration project I've been working on, which I need to write about sometime.

It was a nice evening for a game. As luck would have it, I had a last-minute work assignment (I secretly investigate Muggle businesses to make sure they're doing everything right), so I had a quick dinner and then settled down outside to knit. It was a beautiful night, and the sunlight held out through the entire match - although I might have started to worry if it hadn't ended when it did. The VeryBadDogs were by my side, acting as mascots.Our captain was great, and really kept everyone together in the game. We were short a Beater so my friend from the fall Quidditch league, Gryphon the Great, came over to help us out. It was great to get to play with him, and he was an amazing Beater!

I don't know if I'll get to play in the next match or not, but I hope we win this time!

Hufflepuff's second Quidditch match is coming up this weekend, and I'm playing Chaser for the very first time! I'm so nervous. I've been trying to rest and get ready for the match, and tomorrow I'll check all my equipment to make sure it's in order. I really hope I manage to score some goals for the team.

Something Funny

Apparently this is the week for jokes in our common room - even our Head Girl is encouraging us to come up with something funny. I've been sick all week, so I'm not nearly as good at funny as I might normally be. But here's the best I have:
How big is my Wingspan? As big as an Owl, apparently, but not as big as a goose. I'm glad I have a broom, and don't have to depend on my arms to fly!

Or how about this? Which witch is best to have around when you're hungry? A SAND-wich!
