That's so homely! We have them in the Roost as well. :sits down and noms on one:
My name is Gail - sorry I shouldn't be talking while I eat :swallows:
There, that's better. I am a first year Ravenclaw - very ickle. Actually I'm almost an egg still having joined HOL only two months ago. But it feels like so much longer. There is just so much to do and so many thing happening that you can be a part of. I really am enjoying myself and very much regret not joining a few years back when I first discovered HOL, but didn't have the time I do now. Though maybe I would have been sad then that there were so many things I wanted to be a part of that I couldn't be because I didn't have the time. Maybe.
Also I feel very at home here in the sett. I have always felt that if not Ravenclaw (where I have admittedly always felt I belonged) I would be a hufflepuff. I feel that the hufflepuff values are the ones that best suit me after Ravenclaw's. And that maybe your house's are perhaps the most noble of all the houses. Not the most flashy by any means, but very noble.
Hope to see you all around HOL!

What a lovely surprise that I came home to right now.
After celebrating Valentine's Day with 24 8 - 9 year olds I just wanted to sit down and relax.
Which I did, and come to the Sett.
And what do I find?.... wonderful Valentine messages from some lovely, sneaky people.
Thank you all ... it made my day.

It seems the universe has a sense of humour... I recently received these as a gift:

Fels was having her usual strenuous day in the sun at the beach and an owl came flapping tiredly towards her. Hooting softly she dropped a rolled up piece of parchment onto the soft warm white sand next to Fels.
Opening it, Fels thought 'oh oh' -- what kind of disaster has struck now? But she unrolled it and breathed a sigh of relief.
She offered the bird (who had crept into the shade under the parasol) a glass of water to drink and some crackers to eat, while she thought of a reply.
Scribbling it on the napkin (which had pictures on it) -- This is what she said:
I am oh so proud of our hardworking Badgers, whether they are buckling down to do their assignments or coming to the Sett to work on some highly tricky but fun adventures. It's a pleasure to be able to hand out some well deserving awards.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes....
I did have a quiet day...but surrounded by wonderful friends and family....
and really, that's what matters, right?

Hello! I'm Amanda. *ROARS*
I joined HOL quite a few years back and was super active for a year plus, then reality kicked in and I had to go attend to it, so I left this place for a while and got stuck on Second Year. But now that I have more time on my hands, I'm back here to earn some points and have fun! Most people I knew back then don't seem to be around, and the Gryffindor common room is so freaking quiet, so I came to other common rooms to take a peek. And I'm glad to find you all here!

Oh, I never introduced myself here
I am Kim, a second year Gryffindor student.
I joined HOL in August 2014 and now I need to make a Hello post for a class I am doing

Welcome to the Fireside in our Common room come and chat around the fire. This is the place to introduce yourself tell us what House and year you are in, and a little bit about yourself
I will leave snacks for you to eat while you chat, because chatting makes you hungry
Leaves blueberry muffins still warm from the oven and butterbeer on the table.

I love boggle, so I'm really happy! I've only played with my family before, but I like to think that I'm fairly good at it
I'm really excited about this!

After spending Valentine's Day visiting my mother in the hospital and waiting for roadside assistance to change a flat tire, it was such a treat to see the Sett all decked out and read the messages. Thank you Operation Heart-Shaped Confetti members - you made my day! <333

The common room was a buzz with activity and yet it was as quiet as a church. Every chair, couch, ottoman and space on the floor had a Badger busy at work either trying to pick out their new classes for the term or getting a jump start on their assignment for the classes they already got approved in. Once in a while Felicia could hear a gently popping noise and knew that Wilbur just arrived to bring someone something to eat or drink.
But just like the students, Felicia had work of her own to do. It was time for the Hufflepuff Awards, and there were quite a few to get to. On the table in front of her were all the notes the sneaky House Spirit Award people had given her with their nominations and all of Tarma’s spread sheets of points earned by the Badgers. Though the paper work wasn’t the only things on the table, to her right was her mug of hot tea that thanks a nice warming charm never went cold and to her left a newly delivered box of Godiva chocolates.
Fels reached into the box of chocolates and pulled out a creamy caramel cube and popped it into her mouth as she looked over what she hoped would be the final copy that will be put up on the board to make the “official” announcement.

A loud giggle escaped from her lips as she read the last name of the Scholarly Badger list. It was wonderful to see Belle Black’s name back on the list and getting right back into the swing of earning points after a little bit of a hiatus.
Felicia smiled to herself as she finished reading the parchment, glad to see so many Badgers doing whatever they can to make Hufflepuff live up to their motto of unafraid to toil.
