Common Room Get Together

Hello Gryffs - Please post a day/time preference in the survey on the right and we'll get something scheduled for this week. We do have quite a few time zones and I'd like to get all of us talking ... of course, you're welcome to post on the Rav thread if you're going into the Common Room so others may join you.

Beware, there is a student named Rufus ... something (not sure of his last name). I heard he was handing out Canary Creams to first years in the Great Hall. Please be careful - those Canary Creams have sent more than a few students to Madam Pomfrey last term.

Back to classes

Can you believe we're back for another term at Hogwarts? I'm enjoying putting my between term homework in Care for Magical Creatures. I've got some newt hatchlings which wandered off from my room into the Gryffindor Common Room. I'm still missing one and hope he can be located and soon - hopefully Mrs. Norris won't find him first. If you see him, please let me know. He's blue, with pink and gold sides.
