I am Stumped!

I love quizzes and puzzles...I never stop until I can finish them and I usually hate hints of all kinds...BUT I AM STUCK! Granted, I have been busy with my classes and studies this week and really haven't been able to dedicate the time to this week's Hufflepuff Quiz, but I am determined to finish it! And I refuse to look to my fellow housemates for help, although I may have to cheat a little it if gets close to the deadline for when it is due. GRRRRRR (that's my Badger growl)

On a more positive note, I had a wonderful time in Hogsmeade last weekend. It was my birthday on Sunday, so a friend and I took advantage and purchased some wonderful treats (chocolate frogs are a favorite of mine) at Honeydukes Sweetshop and I bought some great socks and a wonderful scarf at Gladrags. Then we stopped for tea at Madam Puddifoot's. It was quite the day..very exhausting, but loads of fun.

Well...I must get back to this puzzle and the scads of parchments that need to be filled for all of my classes. I never thought being a second year would be so overwhelming!

Congratulations Gryffindors

Well done on finding the snitch and for your lead in the Quidditch match. Sadly, Hufflepuff House has fallen into last place...but not for long! As Badgers, we are fighters, and we shall rise to the top once more! So don't become too comfortable in the Number One position, as it will soon return to the Badgers!
