Happy Halloween!


I have no idea what’s going on here and you know how I feel about use of the passive voice but I NEED to have her dressing gown.

I’m home at Stately Chateau Gateau for a few days before I head down to Villa Plumcake until Thanksgiving so it’ll probably be a few more days until I’ll be able to post regularly again, but while I’m sitting here waiting for those big guys in speed suits to change my oil (sadly NOT a euphemism) I thought I’d ask  a spooky big question.

Hey there, all you beautiful people!

Last week I exposed you all to this deathless image:

… and sick… er… six of you slapped me right back with great captions. All right, it was actually five of you and a source query. BSAG, I honestly don’t recall where I found the pic. I ran across it randomly on the net a couple months ago, and, well, the rest is history.

Anyway. Five pretty hilarious captions, but in the end there can be but one winner. This week said winner is newcomer smark for this foray into potential child endangerment:

Hermione’s birthday strip-o-gram caused quite the stir at the Hogwarts breakfast table.

Congratulations, smark! And thanks to everyone who played!
