An intro... (aka, my long procrastination)

Hey everyone! I'm procrastinating on packing my stuff up so I can leave later today so I figured I'd post my intro.

I'm Penelope (Pen) and I'm the oldest of the writers at the ripe age of 20 *smirk*. I'm not sure if this counts as a stuffed animal, but my baby blanket is pink and was given to me several months before I was born by my great-grandmother. My parents didn't know that I was female so asked her how she knew, she said she just did. She really was something, let me tell you that. Anyway, the blanket's name is Pinky (I was an original child, I know) and I still have her although she's now a scrap that fits inside my hand when I make a fist. As far as a real stuffed animal, the first one I remember was this bear that I never actually named. He was given to me not long after I was born and at the time was larger than I. I still have him, but he never received quite the amount of love that Pinky did and, therefore, is still in relatively good shape. I got involved with this because chasingtides and I had too much time on our hands at dinner one night. We got to discussing the founders and where they came from and the rest, as they say, is history*wink*

I'm in charge of Gryffindor (thanks to all those who sorted me into that House at hogwarts_elite -- if you don't belong and should, go get sorted, and that's an order!). At the moment, I'm not completely sure where I'm going with him. I am planning on his being some level of Norman noble who has taken residence in England following the invasion. Unfortunately, that's about as far as I am at the moment.

Random stuff:
1) I'm disabled and have a great interest in disability both in literature and fandom. In other words, part of my summer will be me working on some essay about disability in Harry Potter. Yay for research!
2) I leave on Tuesday for a trip to Europe for slightly over 2 months. I'm traveling and visiting friends and anyone who wants to host a crazy wheeling American. It should be great fun. Anyone who wants to follow my trip can do so at wheeledtraveler, but if you mention prydera anywhere on that journal, you will suffer a slow and painful death as my parents will have the trip journal address, but I'd prefer that they not have my personal journal address as well.

p.s. I'm looking forward to hearing about how many neighbor's cats receive tea from our betas.
