Evil Joy Speaks

Spawning the next generation of evil genius, one misadventure at a time

A Different Time….

The snow today has transported my mind to a different place and time.

Like December.  In Wisconsin.

Okay so it’s not a different place.  But it’s certainly isn’t the April I was expecting.

The pretty snowfall has me thinking.  Would I rather live in Middle Earth, Narnia, or Hogwarts?

Let’s attack this methodically.

Middle Earth sort of scares the crap out of me.  Aren’t there gremlins and monsters, volcanos and tidal waves, evil and insanity galore?  So no.  Just no.

Narnia is pretty cool.  Talking animals.  But that crazy Ice Queen lady?  She scares the bejeebers out of me.  Like nightmare inducing horror that scares me.  I would love to be transported through a wardrobe but the random subway car taking me away.  That’s sort of freaky as hell.  No thank you.

So then Hogwarts.  Hogwarts has it’s share of scary.  But if I were there I would have powers, right?  Since this is my imagination….Hell yes I have powers.  I am an awesome wizard.  There may be danger and corruption around every corner but seeing how I’m this awesome wizard, I’m set, right?

First, I will practice and hone my skills.  I will be the best.  I will take on that nasty evil snake thing and defeat the snot out of it.  I will save the day.  With my awesome powers.  And there, at Hogwarts, I’m one heck of a snowboarding too.  And a good marathoner.  (If I have powers, I may as well use them for good…my good.)

I am the …


I will be like Hermione only better.  I’ll be Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger all rolled into one.  Without the teenage angst and bratty behavior.

My question was : Middle Earth, Narnia, or Hogwarts and was submitted by the Amazing Stacy from Stacy Sews and Schools.

  1. I think I agree with you. Hogwarts would be the safer and cooler choice. I would totally be in the Harry Potter crowd.

  2. I would probably have to go with Hogwarts as well…..although, if I got to hang out with Legolas, I could be sold on Middle Earth.

    • Legolas is hot…as long as he could take a shower or bath first…that stringy hair thing grosses me out! But I can definitely see the upside of middle earth from your point of view!!!!

  3. You would kill in any of those environments because YOU ARE AWESOME!

  4. that scene where bilbo turns evil for a second sent me flying out of my seat in the theater! it still scares me a little bit. harry potter was my childhood and i still love to get into the world of hogwarts. this was a great post!

  5. BRILLIANT!! SO glad you got the prompt!! Female HP??? PERFECT!!!!!

  6. I’d choose Hogwarts, too. And I thought I was the only one who used the term “bejeebers”! 🙂

  7. Hey, awesome wizard! I wouldn’t want to live in any of those worlds, but if I had to, I would want you to protect me. You would, right?

  8. Yeah I think I’m with you. Hogwarts was the best choice. I too would be a fabulous wizard, and I have your back, so that makes you double safe. Well as long as neither one of us tries to be evil. Bibbity Bobbity Boo. Oops wrong story. Expelliarmus.

  9. I agree completely. A bad ass wizard is so much better than freezing your ass off outside of a clothes closet. And middle earth? I’d be in the fetal position! Wizardry and Snape. Yep, you made the right choice.
    BTW, Everything is awesome. Thanks for that. In a few months when that movie comes out on DVD, I’m sure that song is all I’ll be hearing forever 🙂

  10. This is a troubling question! Narnia is too cold and I don’t want to be in perpetual winter, and I am not quite sure what Middle Earth is, so I would choose Hogwarts. ESPECIALLY if I get to do magic and have powers and junk like that!
