Susan said...

I won't compete in the contest since I live in Germany... The shipping bill would be inexcusable. :)

HOWEVER, I want to say what house I'd be in! Ravenclaw for sure! I even own a Ravenclaw patch that's sewed onto my backpack. I know -- I'm super cool, huh?

Why Ravenclaw? Because I value intelligence, creativity, learning, and wit. Plus, Ravenclaw has the best colors and coolest mascot (yay for raptors!).

Holly Dodson said...

Susan, I'm totally a Ravenclaw too!! And I plan on buying a Ravenclaw shirt, pin, patch, whatever else I find lol No wonder we work so well together! ;)

And you can enter the contest if you want, I don't mind shipping to Germany if you win. I actually have another friend that lives over there, so I'm used to the shipping.

woo! Perfect Chemistry's on the move again~ I wonder if it'll go around the world?

I took that little quiz a while back, and it seems my house was Griffendor. That's where I'd want to be anyway!

Have FUN! :o)

Sarah Enni said...

Count me in the Ravenclaw count! I was always anxious for school to start again (and sort of miss it... a lot) so I think that house would be perfect for me.

I RT-ed the contest!

Not trusting my own judgement, I took a quiz... And was dorkily excited to find out Gryffindor. Or, in my case, GryffinDork.
