So I took this Sorting Test for Hogwarts. And you know what it told me? It said that I belong in Hufflepuff! Hufflepuff. ME!?!?!? They're out of their minds. Every test I've ever taken has said that I belong in Gryffindor! I've very Molly-ish and figure if I'm SO much like Molly Weasley and Molly Weasley is Gryffindor then certainly I am to. This whole test has made me doubt my Lion-ness. Hufflepuff. It's not that I'm elitist and think that Gryffindors are best. Some of my favorite characters are from the other houses (Luna - Ravenclaw, Snape - Slytherin, Cedric - Hufflepuff). I've never seen the division of the houses anymore than putting people with other people who have similar attitudes, moods, desires, ambitions and learning styles. And I keep remembering when Harry questioned Dumbledore about why he was in Gryffindor rather than Slytherin and Dumbledore said, "It is our choices, Harry." It's the same advice that he gave Albus Severus. The Sorting Hat takes into consideration our desires.
I'll have to ponder this some more.
Yeah, it's been (mumbly mumble) weeks since I last posted and the first thing I rant about is a Hogwarts Sorting Test. :-)
In other news, summer has hit us with a vengeance. We've had horrid thunderstorms most days and when it isn't raining it feels like it's about to. It's HOT and MUGGY and we've been hibernating like we normally do in the summer. We've been anxiously studying the Presidential elections and volunteering with the Obama campaign. My birthday came and went. It was pleasant and I received a copy of The Other Boleyn Girl on DVD and The Boy and I made Happy Birthday Pancakes (since my oven is currently on the fritz so it had to be pancakes or no cakes). His tenth birthday is just two weeks away and he's going to get to spend it with his friend playing Wii and we will probably go see Wall-e at the movies. I'm quite thankful for Disney being consistent in releasing their summer movie the weekend of my son's birthday. No big summer vacation trips for us this year. With the gas prices, we are pretty much staying home. Tra-la.
