HP/Ravenclaw

What rocks my socks? My socks!

In the last Sweet Charity auction to benefit RAINN, I won the awesome knitting skills of the super-talented frightened. Her package has made its way across the Atlantic to me, and I just had to share...

I present the brilliant Ravenclaw socks! Eat your heart out, Gryffindors, Hufflepuffs, Slytherins, and fellow Ravenclaws! They're mine, all mine! Muahahahaha!


Ravenclaw socks


Of course, Virginia couldn't understand why I would be taking photos of inanimate socks, when there was a very animate Boston terrier who would happily be my model. So she took it upon herself to get into the action.

In other news, my dramatic reading of Vonda N. McIntyre's "A Modest Proposal" is available on today's StarShipSofa podcast here and via iTunes. My narration starts about 3.5 minutes into the podcast. I've also updated my website with a list of and links to my podcasting activities.


"You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;
Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;
Or perhaps in Slytherin
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends."
- J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
