Ahoy maties! My name’s Delaine, & I’m a habitual procrastinator. lol Better late than never, I guess. It’s delightful to see so many friendly & welcoming people in our lovely House! I’m a total noob in the HP fandom, so it’s a huge relief. I live near Salem, MA & my cousin was going to fly out to attend TWH with me. Sadly, she isn’t going to make it anymore. So I’ll be coming by myself, Halloween Ball included.
Anyway, I’m very theatrical & love to get dressed up. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays for that reason. I’m so down for dressing up like a pirate!! Avast ye scurvy dogs!! *brandishes an imaginary sword* Oh what fun! Are we officially dressing as pirates for the Welcome Banquet? Oh yeah, there’s also a Pirate Museum in Salem, next to the Beer Works no less! And a couple costume shops in town, incase you’re missing your hook/peg leg. I bought my t-shirt last minute, as usual. Heh. It should get here in time, though.
I’m 27, married, F, 2 cats, no kids. I began reading the series last summer. It was a luxury to be able to read them one after the other through OotP! This waiting-around-for-the-next-book thing sucks. lol I’ll admit to feeling slightly unnerved at the thought of our House being Slytherin. I mean, sure I have a dark side, maybe darker than the average person… But I just never identified with any of the Slytherin characters. Still, I’ll wear my House colors proudly, regardless. I know the area pretty well, if anyone has questions, feel free to ask me. I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction. Salem in October is charged with a magical energy that will surely add to the excitement & atmosphere of TWH. Good times are right around the corner! *Whooo-hooo*
Well, I’d best be gettin' me costume together! *tears some red fabric* Safe travels everyone & see you all at the Welcome Banquet!!
P.S. Is anyone here doing the D.A.D.A. Scavenger hunt at 8:00 am on Saturday 10/8/05? I’d like to give it a go, provided I’m not too trashed from the Toil & Trouble Tour. Ahahaha!!
