I don't know. Depends on what kind of birthday song or sport I can conjure up. I'm certainly not doing question 3.

Things I've learned from HP that I use in my daily life:

1. Disarming bad guys works. Always.
2. Werewolves like rare steak. Do not overcook it like the English.
3. Cutting heads off house elves is wrong.
4. Shiny swords can open everything; even pickle jars.

I'd enter just to win a free trip to London!! *LOL*

Let's see: 1) Some wizardry version of "Happy Birthday". Perhaps in Latin?
2) I'm sure that they play the "normal" British sports as well, like soccer...er, excuse me, football, and rugby. They are British as well as wizards.
3) I've learned to speak "English". I use it a work daily with my British guests. (They love it). I can also pick up where they are from because of their accent. That always gets them...LOL!!

Dude, I thought of you when I saw this icon!

I don't know. Ron seemed very confused by Dean's football passion. Wasn't there something about he couldn't understand anyone liking a game with no brooms or only one ball or something like that?

*about to show exactly how much of a canon bitch she is*

Ron was perplexed that the players on the poster didn't move, not that it was of football

*hangs head in shame*

*giggles*
What's Taters, Precious?
