OK, I've gotten off my ass a bit and posted two contests for the house. Check them out!
I've also posted the new version of the RP guide and checked over the newbie guide and FAQ and adjusted them as needed.
If you're in my MS class, homework's due in a little less than 24 hours. I know I didn't give y'all much time to do it. Partly, it's because I'm a sadist. And partly, it's because I'm just bloody sick of this travel class already and want it over with.
I'm more or less ready for the next one. In other words, I may not know all the words, but I can probably hum most of the tune. Let's face it, classes are probably only 70% work and 30% BS. ;-) Photography class was the worst, and I don't ever want to do a class like that again. Teaching muggle subjects is simultaneously the easiest and hardest thing you can do--you know the "thing" in question with no problem. You don't have to check the Lex for every word JKR's ever written on it. You post a class about something you use every day, so how hard is that? Except...that's not exactly true. You're teaching muggle items to a group of people who've never seen them before. Try explaining how something works to, say, an alien from outer space. Good luck. It's not as bad as that because muggle and wizard things are at least similar in principle. But with photography, I not only had to find out how to develop photos in a darkroom and modify that as needed but also figure out how wizard photos are developed, something JKR's never spoken of.
This turned into a weird class rant...
Oh! We have some members on the house team, but we still need more. Please check it out and apply!
On the good news front, my fellow reptiles...
One of the other things I wanted to do, besides those orders, may yet come to pass. One of the people who was supposed to be helping on that e-mailed this morning.
When he's done with it, I'll see if maybe we don't need some intense and intriguing discussion on the matter of distribution.
Keep slithering, and never be afraid to use your fangs,
P.S. Watch out for mongooses.
Now, more than ever, we need Liz's suggestion for a "redesign the Slytherin LJ" contest.
Our layout graphic has gone. :-(
I don't know if I should be posting this here but did say on the userinfo say who are at HC though, I um think it's obvious.
I'm Gudinne- or more better known Pita.
Hallo. Hej. Hey. Hello. Bonjour. Ciao. Halo.
Steve is now Head Boy! Congratulate him! Like, now. ;-) He's cool, and he'll make a cool Head Boy, with or without eyeliner.
I've been promoted to admin. Um, I'd say more, but it's really late.
Suffice it to say, it'll be very hard to leave the house. It hasn't sunk in quite yet. I really enjoyed doing the contests and shit. Hell, I still want to. I'm going to have to slap my hand every so often to stop myself doing stuff. It's such a damned habit.
The offer's still good, by the way. None of that stuff's affected.
You have about 24 hours left to get your orders in!
As always, if you don't know what I'm talking about, see the entry a couple entries below this one. You need to be a member for it to work.
