Only when I'm at work - after the students leave, and I have to prep the next day, it's helpful to know what I need to copy, read, grade, etc...

The next person blushed today, at some point.
Not that I recall.
The next person was blessed with the honor of spending it with their father. (how I envy you)

(Can anyone tell me what a ''C-1 Fatal Tree Error!'' is? Anyone? ANYONE?! )

Actually, thank you for reminding me of that. I was having trouble remembering that today until I read your post.

So we must map. But we're not allowed to. Argh! What a bunch of (the rest of this paragraph was cut by QH's own censorship)

The next person is experiencing warm weather at the moment.
Warm? Even 70mph with windows down on the way home (safely in the speed limit!) wasn't enough to cool me down.
The next person loves to travel at speed (safely in the speed limit!).
As I get older, I find that I'm content with traveling the speed limit...unless I'm on the freeway and a great, inspirational, heart-pounding song comes on and the highway is open and I get the temptation to step on the gas...

The next person wants kids, but does not have them.
I want them, but not until I and my partner is ready for them.

Yes I do. The only malt flavored beverage I have liked was a Mocha Malt Frappacino served by Starbucks last summer only! I was so disappointed they discontinued it.

Absolutely! Even in California, the deserts have become humid (thanks to people moving to Palm Springs and all the golf courses out there that need watering). I have to go to Arizona to find a dry heat - the only heat I can tolerate!

And to think, before I stayed at grandma's, where there's nothing to do, a few weeks ago, all I ever watched was McLeod's Daughters!
The next person prefers Summer to Winter.
As in Vivaldi's Four Seasons? Summer.
As in the "regular" seasons, I definitely prefer winter to summer, mainly because I cannot stand heat and humidity, which defines the summer here in New York. However, if I would have to choose between dry heat and below-zero coldness, I would take the heat. (As long as there is absolutely no humidity!)

No. Sadly, Independence Day is celebrated only in America, so unless they live with a group of Americans, British people aren't likely to batter an eyelid.
The next person prefers Independence Day (the film) to Independence Day (the festival).
I really didn't like that movie, so I'll opt for the celebration here. Even if it is filled with bugs this evening.
The next person doesn't mind bugs or spiders (unlike me! )
Sorry, I'm definitely taking your side here! Bugs and spiders creep me out...

Well, good ol' Mick of course, then there was also... Keith Richards and Brian Jones, and correct me if I'm wrong, Ron Language! said Hermione taylor and .... someone stewart...

Was there a Wood as well? although I'm probably mixing it with someone else.
Anyway... The next person can fold a paper crane, or knows how to fold something else with oragami.
Edit: O.K. what's the nickname for Richard? *That* Taylor

The next person cares not for the rides that take you up very high only to drop you to the Earth.
Actually, those are fantastic! I love the free-fall sensation!
The next person has gone bungee-jumping.
No I have not and I am not likely too, parenthood also tends to instill a new level of cautiousness with one's personal safety.

The next person to post is wearing something red.
Not today, Lilac sweater and white shorts.
The next person has a color they prefer not to wear.
In a typically male answer I'll say pink - and I'm right (no pink clothes in my closet/drawers!). However, I don't mind salmon pink, which I consider to be orange (like smoked salmon, mmmmmmmmmfoooood)
The next person does have a pink article of clothing
Alas, being a natural red head keeps that color out of my wardrobe, so, no.
The next person owns shoes that are not white, brown or black.
Yes, of course, shoes of many colors - blue, red, turquoise, even pink.

When in doubt ROY G BIV. yep

(16 1/2 to go!!!! )
DON'T DISTRACT ME I'M COUNTING
sorry billywig, couldn't resist it - please view as a joke from my twisted point of view
The next person knows why I mentioned 'point of view' specifically...
Darling Yoda, I never question you any more. I'm guessing you wanted to clarify that you weren't shouting at Billy? If I'm completely wrong...oh well.
The next person's family thinks he/she is completely crazy for deciding to hole up to read HBP in one day.
Yes You're not alone!
The next person will not attempt to read HBP in one sitting
Not attempt it? Theres no fun it not trying to attempt it, although i do have to take a break to go to the gym! Gutted.....
The next person will be distraught without any h/g or r/hr in hbp
I can understand no H/G, but if there's no R/H there will be issues...my problem now is remembering what is cannon from fanfics!
The next person doesn't have this problem.
The next to respond did not preorder HBP...like me.
considering that I finished reading it about half an hour ago (), nope!
the next person has also finished HBP...
I haven't started it. It's still in the bookshop, where it'll probably stay.
The next person has noticed, like I, that the boards are empty as the members are busy reading the latest installment from JKR's imagination.
I have noticed that...apart from a few English people who bought it at midnight and read it by 4am....i fell asleep after about 2hours of reading after midnight
The next person is amazed by this plot....
I was. I'll say again in this thread that this is my favorite HP book. So much emotion, so much information.
The next person is sad to realize that there is only one more HP book (guaranteed) left.
I am. It means I only get one more day of absolute peace in the future!
The next person will not mention Harry Potter in any sense.
No! Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter...
The next person believes that to be rather juvinile!
The next person thinks you shouldn't worry about being juvinile.
There's nothing more droll than a person who has forgotton how to be juvinile.
The next person likes white chocolate.

Yes...Master Yoda, we've stopped. Come back to PAY.

The next person waited in line for a few hours waiting for HBP
tsk, Drie! wrong 'un - (I've never posted in PAY much anyway)
the next person can make a 'better' guess (i.e. an excellent guess as opposed to a great guess)...
A Master at The Force, but hasn't read HP yet? He's missing from http://www.elenarda.com/forum/index.php?act=ST&f=6&t=714 and doesn't wish to be subject to many spoilers.
The next person will not follow the link above as they, too, don't wish to read spoilers.
Exaxctly, although a friend of mine read it and has spoiled a few things for me.
The next person has great friends that would do the same thing.
My friends know not to give things away. Like Yoda and some films in the past....
The next person is happy.
At the moment, yes!
The next person enjoys baking.
That depends on if its food thats baking or me baking in the sun, because I do like to bake brownies and chocolate-chip cookies.
The next person likes a good grill-out.
Only if it's my husband or my father doing the grilling!
The next person enjoys baked potatoes.
Yes I do.
The next person has not finished reading HBP.
(I finally just finished about an hour ago although I correctly guessed some occurences & confirmed them by skimming ahead before taking the crew to "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" this afternoon where we viewed a GOF trailer! )
I will hang my head in shame, as I have yet to begin reading it. I got it in my head that I needed to revisit the first 5 books, and as of right now am over half way through the first one. Lots of detail revisited, but it will take me a while until I can share with the rest of you!
The next person thought ahead and has already read the first five books so that they could jump right into the sixth book!
Well, I was *plannning* on reading them, but my brother "borrowed" my books, (meaning that he stole them off my bookshelf while I was in America last year) and only returned them to me (in less than perfect condition, I might add - *how* did he get the chamber of secrets *wet*!?) in enough time for me to read ootp again.
The next person hates it when someone else treats their books with less reverence then oneself would use.
I do. Just because it is a book, so many people feel that it is okay to bang them up or break an unbroken spine. I find that really rude.
The next person doesn't share my views.
Wrong, I do share your views.
Next person was inspired to write a fanfic after reading HBP
Nope, not really.
The next person has succeeded in reading HBP in one sitting

The next person still skips/jumps rope.
No, as I never could in the first place.
The next person has a Harry Potter bookmark.
It's a bookmark of Hedwig.
The next to respond is feeling thirsty right now.
The next person refused a date and/or appointment or something to read HBP
nope, happily read straight through from midnight
Bonus marks to QH though, who notes I haven't yet posted a review/anything in the HBP thread yet (although for the wrong reason ) - I'm trying to sum up thoughts - always a challenge with me (which QH will also testify to!)
The next person has read HBP...twice...!...
No, have only just begun the re-read.
The next person has candy nearby.
Actually, no, for once!
The next person has an opal.
I have a peice of glass shaped like a dog with lots of chips of opal in it, that my friend got me when she went to Uluru, does that count?
The next person has been to an opal mine.
um...can coal be crushed into opals or is it just diamonds...? (nope!)
the next person can make an educated guess about which country I was in when I visited the coal mine mentioned above...
Australia, Germany, India, China, U.S.A?
The next person will be Yoda, correcting my answer
Nope, just me!
The next person really IS Yoda and will let Jerry know whether he is correct or not.
Alas, no. 'Tis Jerry again.
The next person will find it interesting that 'Severus Snape' is an anagram of 'Suave Serpens' (Charming Snake).
Yes I do.

Well, if you count moving out of home in january/feb sometime to go to uni, yes.
The next person enjoys some sort of craft.
If sandwich making counts, then yes. (Arthur Dent anyone?)
The next person likes a good sandwich that is toasty warm and gooey.
My ideal sandwich would be well filled but not spilling out all over the place, cool, healthy and a bit on the moist side, like mayo or juicy cucumbers. And no chicken. Too dry.
The next person knows what their ideal breakfast would be.
Not much for breakfast...but if I have to eat it, it would be maple and brown sugar oatmeal with a banana and a mug full of ice cold milk. That, or Fruit Loops or Lucky Charms.
The next to respond likes breakfast food for dinner.
... well, it's ten to six pm and I just had a bowl of nutri-grain (a cereal) but it's more of an after-school snack, tea's in the oven, still.
The next person prefers the dark meaat of a chicken instead of the drier, white meat.
I'm a white meat person meself.
and now I will finally tell Jerry which country I was in: Wales The nearest area of coalpits to me (it just about beats the north of England's coal fields in closeness)
The next person knows more about the geography of coalpits in the UK...(or has a more interesting geographical fact about the UK...)
Up north, around Scotland, there's a place called Kintyre. The Mull of Kintyre looks quite rude when looking at it in the 'right' way. Amazingly, the BBC used this as a standard for the straightest that rude shape is allowed to be before it is considered too rude for TV, even after the watershed. So, the BBC called it the "Mull of Kintyre Rule".
The next person will say if this geographical fact is interesting.
Yes, and now I've got that song by Paul McCartney in my head!
The next person owns a piece of jewlry with diamond(s) in it.
Nope. The only jewellery I have is an old ring I don't wear anymore. It's silver, and it's engraved with a lie. But that's a different story.
The next person thinks diamonds are not really a girl's best friend.
No, but they sure are nice to have.
The next person has changed his/her hair color at least once.
No. And I'm not likely to. It changes colour by itself.

The next person will shaer with us their favorite book as a child.
ummm... Ramona Quimby, Age 8. A year later, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Magic. A year later, Lord of the Rings. A year later, Roots.
I admit to being strange. All of this was before I turned 12.
The next person hates surprises.
I don't like too many surprises, but I do like some pleasant ones...
The next person loves giving gifts whatever the price tag.
I don't have too much money of my own, so when I give gifts I have to be careful I won't go bankrupt
The next person has yet to read HBP
No, I have.
The next person is not a little buzzed right now.
The next person knows what his/her birthstone is
Nope, not a clue.
