Owl Side

Glee! (Of Potterverse Shirts)

...for my delightful Ravenclaw shirt, courtesy of the inestimably talented chronographia, has arrived. It states, oh-so-nonchalantly, on the front, "Why yes, I am smarter than you." And the back has beautiful scrollworking and words of "The Quill is mightier than the Sword." We are pleased, so very, very pleased, oh yes......preeeeeeecious.

[Ten billion geek points, check]

Now, if only I could convince her to do me a Slytherin one with "Got ambition?"....[subtle-like-brick hint] I must find better bribes, I think....[ponder ponder]

But in the meantime, hurrah!

Owl Side

Potterverse Geekery (primarily for chronographia)

....so if you don't care for such things, you can very merrily stop reading here.

Meanwhile, onto the content. A while back, there was a hunt for proper taglines for the various houses. A dearth of pithy sayings was found for poor patient, determined Hufflepuff, since we could come up with nothing that didn't sound like another house making fun of them. However, on my way home the other night, the following hit me:

"We'll be waiting."

It has a very Borg-esque collective voice going on, and does capture the patience aspect of the Hufflepuffs. The fact that it has a sinister tone implied is really just bonus.

However, I realize I could simply be blinded by my pseudo-creativity. Therefore, for all who were trying to come up with taglines for the houses, what do you think of that one for Hufflepuff?
