Ask the grumpies: What’s your Harry Potter house

Leah asks:

What Harry Potter house are you and why?

You would think we’d both be Ravenclaw, being academic nerds and all.  Certainly not Gryffindor because that requires bravery not evidenced by an anonymous blog.  But actually, only one of us is Ravenclaw (with a bit of Hufflepuff mixed in depending on which quiz is taken).  The discovery that the other half of this blog wasn’t a fellow Ravenclaw was a huge shock to one of us.  We discuss the horrific discovery here.

#NotAllSlytherins

Edited to add for our American audience:  Speaking of Slytherins.  Please call or fax your senators today about Kavanaugh.  They’re planning on voting this morning, then on SATURDAY, and then final vote on Monday.  The only thing that has a chance of stopping them is immediate public outcry.  Call (or fax) no matter who your senators are, red or blue.  This is necessary to show how mad people are.  Call even if you’ve called before.  If you need scripts:  https://5calls.org/ or https://twitter.com/celeste_pewter .  Here’s where to fax for free:  https://faxzero.com/fax_senate.php .  This is really important.  The American Bar Association just came out against him, so we have a chance, but only if we can delay these votes.  Please call, even if it’s scary.  Here’s our activism tab:  https://nicoleandmaggie.wordpress.com/activism/ for more resources.

    I was sorted into Ravenclaw on Pottermore but Hufflepuff in that quiz. I think I’m roughly borderline between the two, with a tiny splash of Gryffindor here and there.

      Amen. For my resistbot scripts, I just grab the text of each tweet on my feed (well, not all of them, there are a lot. But the best ones) that have me saying, “Amen!” adapt the language to my situation and send it to my senators. I can’t imagine it will help in the sense of changing their votes, but I’m hoping its having a marginal difference in changing the mood in the halls of Washington, and may (along with everyone else’s efforts) thereby matter.

    I still think it’s a bit sad that I’m 5x as much Slytherin as Hufflepuff. But I have evil in my heart at the state of this country and how much men hate women here so I’m not arguing anymore.

    Excerpted from Indivisible email just now:

    First, if you haven’t called your Senators yet, DO IT. This is not a done deal. Multiple Republicans – and Democrats are still on the fence. And in spite of voting to move the nomination forward, Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has called for the full floor vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination to be delayed to allow an FBI investigation into the accusations.

    It’s now being reported that Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) are joining Flake’s call for a postponement until an investigation is complete. These Senators will only have an impact if they say they’re voting no if their demands aren’t met.

    But let’s be clear: Mitch McConnell is the one person who controls the floor vote. And the only way, as always, that this vote gets delayed is if McConnell doesn’t have the votes. The full Senate could vote very soon. Your Senators need to hear from you.

    Call 1-844-778-3056 and you’ll be connected to one of your Senators. Call back, and you’ll be connected to your other Senator!
