Another pointless game

I didn't sleep well last Saturday, and I knew from past experience that I might have trouble staying awake in church on Sunday morning. That's a problem, because as a member of the choir, I sit right up front, in plain view of the entire congregation. So during the sermon, I took my pencil out of my folder and circled all the proper names mentioned in the prayer requests section of the announcements. Then I wrote down a name or phrase from the Harry Potter books that started with the same letter as each of the circled names. Kind of a dumb way to pass the time, not to mention borderline sacrilegious, true, but it worked, and isn't that what's important?

I'm sort of embarassed that I couldn't come up with anything better than "Ice mice" for "I". On the way home, I remembered Igor Karkaroff, and a glance at the Harry Potter Lexicon reveals several other things starting with "I" that I should have thought of: Imperio, Impedimenta, Incendio, Invisibility Cloak, and so on. Oh well, next time I'll do better.

And speaking of Harry Potter:

You scored as Ron Weasley. Your alter ego is Ronald Weasley. You often feel like second best and as a result don't have an awful lot of self confidence, but a truer, more capable friend would be hard to find.
