X is for eXpecto patronum

Only because we're watching the DVD of Deathly Hallows part 1 right now. And I love Ron Weasley. Well, that's not really relevant to patronuses. But I do. Ron rocks.

I'm annoyed because I bought the blueray/DVD combo. I don't have blue ray, only a DVD player. And the DVD version does NOT have the extra scenes or the interviews. Ugh.

According to http://www.allthetests.com/ my patronus is:

The Phoenix, the phoenix is a creature that symbolizes prophetic wisdom, death, and rebirth. This Majestic patronus soars onto the field blanketing your foes in fire and causing devastation to all that oppose it.
Apparently I should be honored to receive this magical creature as my patronus! According to the site, only 27 % from 85590 test takers had this profile!

I like the Phoenix. The patronus test I took on Facebook gave me a squirrel.  Not that I don't like squirrels, but it's just not as cool as a phoenix.


What's your patronus?

You'll see Ron's Jack Russell terrier patronus knock Neville Longbottom on his rear end.

This same exact thing happened to me with the blu-ray dvd combo.

I was bummed. I was also ready to go buy a blu-ray player just to watch the scene. Maybe I will get one in my next laptop.

Congrats on the sweet patronus!

:)

It says my patronus is a whale. Pretty awesome. 13 year old me is so pumped.

I think the concept of a patronus is brilliant. A protective entity that we create with our own minds. How cool. :)

I don't need to take the test: I know my Patronus is a zebra!

Great word for today. I love the Harry Potter books!

Thanks for sharing the link! I got Albus Dumbledore and his Phoenix. (??)

Also, I laughed at your second paragraph. I DID THE SAME THING! Not with this movie, but with Half Blood Prince. I was so excited, only to find out all the special features were on the Blu-Ray :( I ended up giving mine away as a Christmas gift and bought the other version.

I love Harry Potter. We just went to HP world last January. I was in HEAVEN. Bought a Gryffindor scarf, too, and glared at all the Slytherins.

Thanks everyone! And Barbara, I totally see myself going to buy the other version and giving this one to the library or something. #annoying
