And A New Quidditch Season Begins

I can't believe that summer is over and we are back into the routine of things. Siobhan and I were quite surprised to receive notice that Miss Wartbobble would be taking a sabbatical this term. She wasn't very forthcoming about where she was going or what she would be doing, but she did say we'd hear from her.

That meant Siobhan and I had a lot of work to do before the Quidditch season began. I have discovered a wonderful Muggle beverage called an energy drink, and have consumed my fair share!

All the captains and assistant captains have been busy ordering and distributing team jerseys, handling try outs for positions, and generally working to get our players in shape for the first match. I have been spending some time getting reacquainted with old friends and making new ones. Here are some of the things I have discovered:

1. There are quite a few people who enjoy some of the same crafts as me. For instance, Stuart Cauldwell likes to knit, Quietus likes to make costumes, Emma Gorodok enjoys scrapbooking and Bridget the Bloodthirsty likes anything Disney.

2. Fleur Sweeting's birthday is in the same month as me...July.

3. Maisy Muddlestix is from Australia.

4. Celeena Cree is a new Quidditch player. (Welcome Celeena!)

5. Antonio delay Weasley has been around for many, many Quidditch seasons...even more than me!

6. Rowan Dragonsinger thinks she may have a larger stash of yarn that I do, but I doubt it.

7. Agatha Vablatsky both knits and crochets. I feel like such a dummy next to her.

8. Lily May Clearwater and I like the same colors, blues, greens and purples. Wonder if she likes peacocks?

Oh well...back to practice!
