Default Meet Bazinga!!

Well, well, well, so we meet again. Though maybe we are just meeting for the first time which is super cool too. Hello there, I'm Bazinga, but you can call me Ali and I will be your March meet the mod. I hope you are all doing great on this first of March and ready to ask some questions because I am so ready to answer. I love these because I always love the questions you all come up with.

So just a tiny bit about me before we get started, I'm 37, have three children, two dogs, a cat, two huge goldfish, and a turtle. Oh yes and a husband I shouldn't forget him. I have been at my job for 13 years and teach second graders. Each year at the end of the year we read Harry Potter and have a huge Harry Potter day. Did I mention my classroom theme is Harry Potter with flexible seating? I have been on SS almost eight years and have done almost everything! I've been in every house, have been on the Hogwarts staff, I am the editor n chief for the Daily Prophet in Diagon Alley, I am a Department Head in the Ministry. I also Mod the Quibbler and St. Mungos RPG area.


Alright, that is enough introduction bring on your questions!

Hi! Nice to meet domeone so invested in the Potterverse!
So I’m a teacher too, teqching EFL with kids from 1 to 11yo at the moment, with the ones over 6 we talk a lot about HP and they have the most amazing insights.
My question is, what’s the best HP question/comment you ever got from your students?

Heeeeeey, Ali!

I have a few questions!
  1. You said you've been in every house during your time on SS. Which house have you enjoyed playing the most and why?
  2. Aaaand you have quite a few pets! What are their names?
  3. If you could have any magical creature from the HP universe as a pet, which would you choose?

Oh, this is a good question Ali! I think I might have said this in other places, but people around me inspire me. Many are my students, they inspire me the most, but some of the characters have my personality in them.

Welcome to SS I'm so glad you are here! Oh, it is fun, every year introducing 8-year-olds to Harry Potter. I get so many different things from students. I think the one that sticks in my mind is when they were somehow convinced that Snape and Dumbledore were actually related. They spent days trying to convince me why they thought this.

Hey Nat!!

I have loved playing in all of them but two stand out as my favorites. I love Hufflepuff, that will always be my first home. I started SS there and it was so fun to play a Puff all seven terms. My second one is Slytherin, I think I had the most confidence playing Slytherins. I am a true Slytherpuff so that might be why the two are my favorites.

We are crazy when it comes to pets, did you know my one goldfish is actually 6 years old! I can't even with his lifespan. Anyway, I have two dogs Snowy and Pete, One cat named Rockie, the turtle is Mr. Turtle (so creative, right?), and the goldfish I honestly don't remember.. The oldest I know is Goldie, but I can't remember the youngest. My son won him two years ago.

A niffler hands down, I love them so much.

Hey I know you!

I love answering your first question! It is from Big Bang Theory, I was super into it when I first started on SS so I put it there and it's been there ever since.

Many people do change and I love seeing what the come up with. I never have felt super creative when it comes to coming up with a great name so I have just left Bazinga and now I've had it for so long I'm not sure I can part with it.

Hmmm, this is a hard one. I love them both. I so enjoyed Divination, it was my favorite out of the two subjects I thought. You can do so much with it. I still have lists of ideas some where on my computer.

Hey there!

It is Big Bang theory and my favorite would be Leanord. I was always a Roseanne fan and David was one of my favorites so as soon as I knew he was on there I had to watch and of course fell for his character again.

Hello, stranger. Nice to meet you!

What do you like best about teaching second grade (specifically that age group, and not a different age)?

What do you like best about each RPG area (Hogwarts, DA, Ministry, and of course St Mungos)?

Favorite book you read in the past year? (I'm always looking for book recs, y/k)

Well hello, hello!

I love, love, LOVE teaching second grade. I taught kindergarten five years before moving to second. I feel like this is the perfect age! They still love coming to school and the teacher is still cool, but they can be independent and do fun projects! Plus every year I read Harry Potter, I couldn't do that with every grade!


Oh that's a fun question too...
Hogwarts: I love the school and the lessons. I enjoy getting to be at Hogwarts through RP, plus the plots are always fun.
Ministry: Games, I've been in games so long, but I just love the quidditch and gobstone parts. Bringing those to life is one of my favorite jobs.
Diagon Alley: I think the shops are so fun and getting to have your characters just hangout.
St. Mungos: I love that you can get a little more personal with your characters, have their houses and their lives right on site!


My favorite book this past year is probably My Favorite Husband or When Good Friends go Bad. I really liked the Dragon Blood series.

Okay, first of all! You are!

1. I was at Disney in High School, so it was a long time ago! The ride that was my favorite is no longer there. It was the Tower of Terror.

2. Prisoner of Azkaban, both my favorite book and movie.

3. I honestly don't know. I've tried to figure this out before, especially if I've had a really bad year and I come up with nothing. Teaching is all I ever wanted to do.
