Well, my little blog readers, I am sensing that most of you don't love the Harry Potter posts (sniff sniff--those are tearful sniffs, although I could be wrong?). So I will post today about Potter, and possibly tomorrow, and that's it (Ha! Because I'm going out of town! Not because you readers made me do it!). Today's is funny because I actually surveyed my students all day about this one. I asked any student who knows me relatively well which Hogwarts teacher they thought I was most like (Therefore, your question of the day is: Which Hogwarts teacher are you most like?). The majority of them answered Professor Trelawney-- the weird, fortune-telling teaching of Divination (and they answered this without any prompting from myself). I though that was particularly hysterical because she's so odd. One of my students gave this reason: "Because she's all 'wooo wooo' [waving his arms], and you're all 'wooo wooo,'" Which I took to mean a little out there. Most of the students compared me to her because they thought I was funny, funky and eccentric. Not bad, I suppose. Could have been much worse. And really, who would have been that much better? Yeah, Professor McGonagall is the coolest, but I wouldn't really want my students to think I was anything like her--kind of crotchety and stern.
You will be happy to know that my Potter Mania is waning just a tad, so next week my posts will probably be normal. As normal as Trelawney, anyway.
