Please remember, when making announcements:

Number each Quaffle
Number each Chaser Chain
Include the current score.

Thx!

==============

Slytherin Keeper

Unfortunately, warm-up laps are proving a little difficult for Slytherin's Keeper Natalie, whose broom is decidedly not in the mood to play game.

Keeper Stacie will take over for the first 24 hours of the game so Natalie can get her broom checked and repaired.

All good! No guarantees for entertainment on our side either though haha. Worst case, throw in a gif or two instead of long-winded text ;-)

I forgot one of our reserves!

Lovely Tina would like to be a reserve player & announcer - nice Slytherin people will forgive the oversight? (it's a bit messy in the Burrow, sorry!)

Pfffttp!

You need no help!

Karishma (karishmanewar) @Tea long time no see. How is the cheese popcorn machine?

Do you remember?


message 13: by Cat (new)

Cat (cat_uk) | 6506 comments Mod
Cheese popcorn machine???

Tell us more!

Is this a delicious snack or a vicious attempt to poison opponents with seemingly delicious snacks? A Fred & George Lunchbox special??


message 14: by ❀Tea❀ (new)

❀Tea❀ (ttea) | 9471 comments Hey, Karishma! So it is you! I've been wondering. :)

Little busy right now. There is this game going on and opponents keep distracting me by posting in match thread. I have little heart attack every time I see new post thinking you are done and ready to go for score. :P

How are you?

Can I interest anyone in some cheese-based jokes? They're gouda!

Hahahaha! I love me a cheese-based joke....

E, you'll regret that encouragement!

What cheese do you use to coax Yogi out of a tree?

(view spoiler)


message 19: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) Cheese popcorn is Tea's favourite snack during matches and debates. So we can bribe her with them :-P:-P:-P:-P

I am going to have to save some for later in the match :)


message 30: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) @Tea I'm doing good. What about you?

How is Aragorn's clone doing?

Cat (cat_uk) | 6506 comments Mod
That you can keep! Sounds like an acquired taste to me!


message 38: by Sophie, The other one (new)

Sophie (drsophie) | 3338 comments Mod
That's all yours Jenny! Tried some salted caramel Wensleydale a while back, really wasn't a fan. Cheese shouldn't be sweet like that


message 39: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) Same Sophie. I like cheese popcorn. Somehow haven't developed the taste for sweet popcorn .


message 40: by Jammin Jenny (new)

Jammin Jenny (jamminjenny) | 4069 comments It's an acquired taste - like kettle corn

❀Tea❀ (ttea) | 9471 comments Slytherin Beater

Ora making her debut in green proudly hops on her broom, swings her bat and (with tongue poking to make it go strait) aims her bludger toward Danielle.

Reading Hot Ride same as Huffs chaser


Let the chase begin!


message 43: by ❀Tea❀ (new)

❀Tea❀ (ttea) | 9471 comments Just out of curiosity, since Tündér Lala is children book, word count is within rules?


message 44: by ❀Tea❀ (new)

❀Tea❀ (ttea) | 9471 comments Slytherin Keeper

Stacie wants to prove that she's great substitute for Natalie and picks her quaffle letter. That E looks so sweet and nice so she picks up her The Ex and gets ready to defend a goal

Reading The Ex - read by Sandy for E


message 45: by Cat (new)

Cat (cat_uk) | 6506 comments Mod
Huff Karishma, also debuting, is reading Hot Ride to defend Danielle from Stacie

Ora flies and aims her bludger true at Danielle.
Finished Hot Ride

Jammin Jenny (jamminjenny) | 4069 comments Slytherin Beater - Attack

Ora swoops on her broom and goes for Sandy reading Ilias


message 48: by Cat (new)

Cat (cat_uk) | 6506 comments Mod
Cat launches herself after Ora, reading about the frankly pudgy Ilias too

Ilias (Stratham Dragons, #2) by Sarah J. Stone

I'm waiting on Melinda to get back to us (she's feeding the family or some such reason for not being surgically attached to GR)

I think the answer is yes, it does have more than 25k words (it's 240p,took 2hrs to read, even as a speed reread, and Melinda was able to write a thoughtful review, which implies wordy content & which makes it comparable to A Little Princess, say) but.... I don't know that we can verify it...

Jammin Jenny (jamminjenny) | 4069 comments Slytherin Beater

Louise flies off taking aim at the final Huff chaser Katie reading Cocky Client
