What's your favourite mythological creature? I guess... CENTAUR!  
Ok, so I know I haven't updated in a while, but in lieu of a real update I just had to share the most ridiculous bus ride I have ever experienced. Lee and I just caught the bus back from Aimee's and, since it was about 11pm on a saturday night, there were a whole bunch of people heading into town. At one of the stops, a mob of youngish drunk boys got on the bus, being understandbly rowdy. They started off singing the theme song to Home and Away at the top of their lungs, and then went into some kind of call-and-answer drinking chant thing where they listed facts about their friends. They were singing about a girl who was on the bus that they knew, and one of the facts was "Your vast knowledge of Harry Potter trivia" which was funny in itself (esp. since Lee and I are geeks about Harry Potter generally). Then one of the boys wanted her to prove her Harry Potter knowledge, and challenged her to name the four founders of Hogwarts, which she did. After this, one of the guys began conducting a Harry Potter Trivia quiz for the whole bus.

"What is the name of Fred and George's joke shop in Diagon Alley?"

"Name the seven Horcruxes!"

"What's the name of Hagrid's half-brother?"

"Name both of Draco Malfoy's parents!"

Then they decided to do a trivia quiz about one of their friends, the first question of  which was asked to the boy himself: "What's your favourite mythological creature? I guess... CENTAUR!"

Seriously, it was the most ridiculously geeky public drunken behaviour I have ever encountered. So funny XD

Felt a bit sorry for the bus driver, though, lol.

OH MAN. That would be so great! I seriously giggled through that whole thing. That would probably be the funnest bus ride ever! Hehe.

P.S. Hellooo new friend! I love your layout! (:

Haha, right? It was hilarious. I always appreciate moments when I'm not the one making the Harry Potter references, lol.

Hello! Thanks :) Personally, I am enjoying your Han Solo icon there ^_^

I thought it might be a little unfair if I did, seeing as the rest of them were playing with the handicap of being less than sober, lol.

That is beyond brilliant! Harry Potter geekery will never not be ace. :D

Do we really inflict Home and Away on you guys? I'm so sorry!

I concur entirely XD

We get Neighbours too. And because it's New Zealand, we get Shortland Street every night at 7.30, which is another thing I could do without, lol.

Is it bad that I know the answers to all those questions? Probably yes.

They were relatively obscure questions from a bunch of drunk first year boys, lol. I was impressed.
