  1. My Handle, is Amber. Why? Because that's my name.

    #1 I would love to own a kneazle. Talk about awesome!

    #2 Pass on accounts of narcissism.

    #3 I had to look this one up the first time I read the book. As far as I can tell it's a peppermint candy with black stripes... traditionally they were chewy though. Maybe next week's prize pack will include something pepperminty and/or humbugy.

  2. O.K., here we go:

    1. I want a dragon. You'd be warm in the winter, noone would mess with you, they're good luck, and you would have free air fare to anywhere in the world!

    2. Dumbledore discovered 12 uses for dragon's blood. Even cooler, he hung out with Nicolas Flamel.

    3. Peppermint Humbugs are mainly made in Australia but are available in New Zealand, Ireland, Canada, and the United Kingdom. They are usually eaten in the winter, taste like peppermint, are often cylindrical in shape, and are striped with black and white or brown and tan colors. They have a hard candy shell with a soft toffee center. The modern humbug comes in many flavors, but they suffered unpopularity shortly after 1858 when a man accidently made them with arsenic and poisoned 200 people; 20 of them died. Is this why Harry avoided them?

  3. I wanted to leave you with a link to a perfect example of air travel by dragon...

  4. Very cool Ingrid - I love that pic. You and Hagrid would be so happy together! Hagrid and Ingrid, are you sure you're not siblings? I read your Peppermint Humbug answer to Willo and she told me I needed to get her some. sigh.

    BTW, I forgot to say why I would own a kneazle! Bad Amber. Other than being intelligent and faithful, they could point out untrustworthy people... and maybe pugs who have acted bad.
