So I'm going a bit "out of character" here, but am hoping to find some sympathy.

I don't want to "come out".  Strange that a grown-ass woman has gotten attached to her fictitious persona, but there you have it.  There are times when I "Esmie" in real life.  Oh, well.  All good things.......

This weekend I hope to finish the swap bag and whip of a batch of cockroach clusters and peppermint toads.  Yummm!

T-Shirts and other HSKS4 Memorabilia

Our time at Hogwarts is fast coming to a end and a number of us have bandied about the idea of House Shirts.  Some of the more **cough** ribald members of our tower cry "Study hard, party harder", others favor a more sophisticated tone.  I'd like to get some empirical data to share with the Prefect, Head Girl and Head Mistress.  Please pop over and participate in the polls.

Edited to keep me out of muggle-style toilet scrubbing duty.
