Friday Five: Wotcher, Harry! ...or not

(Don't miss the big news in the post below! Mark your calendars!)

As you may have seen in this Wednesday's Festival, Pottermania has hit the RevGals---though not all of them. Yes, I am all over Harry like a Seeker on the Snitch, but I know there are others who will be ecstatic to see the July madness end.

So today's F5 is a Choose Your Own Adventure: do the magical version or the Muggle one, or both:



Option 1: Accio Friday Five!

1. Which Harry Potter book is your favorite and why?

2. Which character do you most resemble? Which character would you most like to get to know?

3. How careful are you about spoilers?
a) bring 'em on--even if I know the destination, the journey's still good
b) eh, I'd rather not know what happens, but I'm not going to commit Avada Kedavra if someone makes a slip
c) I will sequester myself in a geodesic dome to avoid finding anything out

4. Make one prediction/share one hope about book 7.

5. Rowling has said she's not planning any prequels or sequels, but are there characters or storylines (past or future) that you would like to see pursued?



Option 2: Please Mommy, Anything But Those Blankety-Blank Books!

And we do mean anything:

1. Former U.S. First Lady "Lady Bird" Johnson died this week. In honor of her love of the land and the environment, share your favorite flower or wildflower.

2. A man flew almost 200 miles in a lawn chair, held aloft by helium balloons. Share something zany you'd like to try someday.

3. Do you have an iPhone? If not, would you want one?

4. Speaking of which, Blendtec Blenders put an iPhone in one of their super-duper blenders as part of their "Will It Blend?" series. What would YOU like to see ground up, whizzed up or otherwise pulverized in a blender?

5. According to News of the Weird, a jury in Weld County, Colo., declined to hold Kathleen Ensz accountable for leaving a flier containing her dog's droppings on the doorstep of U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, apparently agreeing with Ensz that she was merely exercising free speech. What do you think? Is doggy doo-doo protected by the First Amendment?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Accidentally deleted a comment over at my place...please forgive me! Please feel free to come back and post again--I think I've got the technology demons in check.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Having never read (listening to dozens of breaths drawn in shock) a Harry Potter book...I'll have to try the alternative FF at my place .

    ReplyDelete
  14. I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

    Unfortunately, I won't get to read many of your posts, because I'm taking care of the baby, planning a funeral, packing for confirmation camp and trying to get a new computer to access our wireless connection (anyone with experience with Vista please email me!).

    I feel like Harry and Ron on those nights when the stack of homework just keeps growing and growing and growing... Where's Hermione when I need her?

  15. ooohhh Fun! i can't wait to play and to see/read who chose which to play and their answers!

    i have 2-4 pages left to write on my final summer class paper! better get to it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I played last night, but my Owk forgot to Post it!!

  17. Okay, I just spent 20 minutes typing this up and somehow lost everything. I don't have time to redo it. Rats!

    Real quick: I really, really hate being spoiled and I think that perhaps Haryy has been the John the Baptist, "preparing the way" for Neville's heroism.

    Happy Friday, y'all!

    ReplyDelete
  18. that would be "Owl" - maybe she would post it if I spelled her type correctly!!

    ReplyDelete

    All in good fun, y'all.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I played the muggle version. What fun! Come see me in KCK

    ReplyDelete
  21. I played, in between chapters of reading book one for the first time. I have read all the others several times, but this is my first go at book one. Yes...I know that I am strange.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I played since Lady Bird was a member of my parish, but I don't think this was one of the finer Friday Fives. I guess I've gotten too spoiled from so many great ones.
    Poop and blenders? Seriously?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I conjured up an entry. Here is the Port Key

  24. I'm all over this... thanks for being my procrastination destination of choice!

    I’ve done one of each, so that you can choose your read. Wizards, grab your brooms and head here. For the Muggle edition, click here

  25. Darn it reverendmother! Of course I played! Even though I have to write a sermon! Auuughhh! I played here!

    Accio sermon!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Playing for the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well,
    I'm also going to Solemnly Swear I am up to no good!

    What fun! And I have to say, this 5th movie really was really well done- a pretty good screenplay adaption from a huge book!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I played! Well the first option anyway. Might do the other one later.

    ReplyDelete
  29. ANd here is the non-Poter version.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Goodness, I'm late! Here it is anyway.

  31. (P.S. Hope you don't mind that I stole your art!) :)

  32. Rhiannon, I'm surprised to hear you say that. It's a really fun Friday Five, and RM bothered to make not one but two choices! What's not to like? Even though I don't often play I want to give props (oh yes, I do work with young adults, why do you ask?) to the FF creators. I would have run out of ideas in about 10 seconds.

  33. Lady Bird was a real American hero...Long live Lady Bird!

  34. How could I spend all day on VBS when I could have been blogging about Harry? I finally got to it here.

  44. I missed the express yesterday, but have been happily Pottering here
    Great fun...thanks rm. I wish I felt so positive about my sermon!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I played Option 1 yesterday but Blogger was being difficult. One good "Impedia" spell and it still didn't work. Rev Scott is right: Where is Hermione when you need her?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Did you all realize this was posted on Friday the 13th? oh my. But I am not superstitious. Thanks for the fun.

    ReplyDelete
