I’ve been feeling uninspired and unconnected lately. I don’t have good reasons as to why, I just do. It makes me think that I ought to change things up a little blog-wise, so I thought I’d take a page out of Reddit’s book. Only not really, because Reddit is easily the meanest corner of the internet. But! They do feature AMAs (Ask Me Anything!) and those are the most fun. I thought I’d try an AMA on for size, only I’m not famous so nobody probably cares. Therefore, I’m going to interview myself, at least for today. I’d LOVE for y’all to submit questions for me in the comments or in email or wherever. You are welcome to ask ANYTHING. Bookish stuff, personal stuff, hypothetical stuff (I especially love hypothetical questions). I also reserve the right NOT to answer a question… Because I’m making up the rules and it’s important to me that there are loopholes so I can cheat the system. Sooooo…. Let’s do this, shall we?
QUESTION OF THE DAY: What is your Patronus? (Submitted by ME.)
I have given this question waaaaaaaaaay too much thought, which is precisely why I asked it of myself. If you’ve never read Harry Potter, don’t tell me because I’ll probably cry. But on the off chance some of you exist, a Patronus charm is an animal manifestation of your joy that can fight off soul sucking dementors and occasionally carry messages. A very useful charm, the Patronus. A spirit animal, if you will. OBVIOUSLY, penguins are extremely important to me, but I was concerned that your standard Adelie or Magellanic or even Emperor penguin wouldn’t be fierce enough to fight off a dementor. I knooooooooow Hermione’s patronus is an otter, so obviously extreme cuteness is among a dementor’s weaknesses, but a cutesy penguin still didn’t feel quite right. That’s when I read an article about these big-ass prehistoric penguins. This mamma jamma was 5 feet tall and FIERCE. Meet my Patronus, Penguinsaurus Regina (she’s a lady.) Cower in fear, all ye dementors! You have no power here!
Any of you Bookworms have anything else you’d like to ask me? If you don’t contribute questions I’m going to continue to interview myself, and I’m not sure that’s a good idea. Fire away, y’all. I’m listening.
