Mystery Blogger Q’s 2013 theme"The Encyclopedia, Social Media, and Me!!"


Q is for Quidditch

I learned all kinds of things from this blogger on Q Day.

"1. This prosperous country is a tiny peninsula jutting out from the Arabian Peninsula in the Persian Gulf. It is ruled by a monarchy, currently Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani is in power. (Qatar)

2. The name of the tragic bell ringer in Victor Hugo's "Hunchback of Notre Dame." (Quasimodo)

3. The largest of the Canadian provinces? (Quebec)

4. The broomstick riding game of "Harry Potter." (Quidditch)

5. In American football, he's the guy throwing the ball. (quarterback)
Bonus: No more talking, no more fun- what kind of meeting has begun? (Quaker)"


Who was it? HINT: This blogger dreams a lot.

  7. I slept in this morning so I couldn't post first, but I'm still up there. And I can't think of who this is. I should know, but it's just not register. I should go back to bed.
