You’re listening to WWRVN, Radio Ravenclaw Good Morning, Ravenclaw, you’re tuned to The Fresh Pot of Coffee! It’s Thursday, so get the recycling ready to go out tonight and meanwhile enjoy the Horoscope. Your Horoscope this week is brought to you by Haumea, the dwarf planet which is visually right near Arcturus at the moment. Arcturus is visible in the morning in this season, just follow the arc of the Big Dipper backward to the Really Bright Star. That’s Arcturus. Wave toward it and you’ll be greeting one of the Solar System’s favorite Trans Neptunian Objects. We used Haumeamancy to generate our predictions this week, so hold on for a stellar-fast ride! Octopodes 10+: “Dwarf planet, one-third the mass of Pluto”. this seems to indicate that you’re headed for a growth spurt. Alert your parents to fire up the crock pot and get yourself out there hiking, running, chopping wood, and carrying water. A growth spurt after about age 13 is all about putting down layers of muscle, so...

You’re listening to WWRVN, Radio Ravenclaw. Good Morning, Ravenclaw - you’ve tuned in to The Fresh Pot of Coffee! It looks like a beautifully sunny (or perhaps rainy) day out there, we suggest that it’s an excellent time to hang up some fresh laundry to dry (or get that softening effect of rainwater). What? the weather’s not until tomorrow! It is, in fact, Thursday, so time for your Horoscope! Octopodes (10+): That was really surprising, that thing you did! some of you are ahead on points and some of you lost them, depending on the thing, but you should know that your Surprise Factor just about doubled. This is an excellent way to approach the weekend, as your people have no idea what to expect from you and will be eager to give you permission to do things lest you do Other Things on your own. Ask - they will say yes! Also, i before e. Neon Tetras (20+): That thing that was making you anxious? There’s a right time to worry. In fact, the right time to worry is today from 17:45 t...

You’re listening to WWRVN, Radio Ravenclaw. You’ve tuned in to The Fresh Pot of Coffee! It’s Laundry Day, folks. That’s right, just flick and swish your wand in the general direction of your wardrobe with a soft Tergeo and then it’s time to get the binoculars. Watching the Muggles wrestle with huge baskets of wet clothing baffles me every time. They hang them out, then it rains, then they take them in and hang them upinside their houses… We’d like to note that the after-full moon was not enough to wash out Arcturus last night - that kingly little star just kept shining past the moonglow! Today’s debate, folks - if you convert wooly fluff to yarn, does that technically add to your stash in a stashdown? Discuss! Some members of the station staff believe that heating season is over. This member of the station staff does not. Amusement is thin on the ground. In a recent interview, Cornelius Fudge, former Minister of Magic, revealed that he waits until our broadcast before making...

CAT, wheeee! Thank you for your attention. This has been your daily Break Month Levity with Martin Freeman, I’m Cyprienne. photo credit: Jay Brooks for Time Out London magazine Voting has begun for the Mad Scientist Award for the Winter 2015 term.

This is WWRVN, Radio Ravenclaw. We have a jam-packed show for you today. We begin with field correspondent elekanahmen reporting on activities for the last month of term: I’m sure you have all been waiting on the edge of your seats for the results of the Epic Cat Battle! Sorry to have kept you waiting, but I wanted to make sure everyone had time to edit their tags in if they forgot, and then of course it takes a little while for the search database to update… Or really, well, I’ve been grading and Official Cup Duties are a bit more important than silliness, even such important silliness as this! I looked over all the entries for all three feline contestants and I found it interesting that 2/3 of them had at least one SoS vote, and one of them had three different SoS supporters! 2/3 also had NQFY support from two different prospective students! All three of them, in fact, had at least one vote from SoS knitsNhikes! But of course what you all have been waiting for is the final resu...

This is WWRVN, Radio Ravenclaw. Faithful listener llim called in again to the station to remind people that there will be a lunar eclipse this weekend visible to much of North and South America, Asia and Australia. Unfortunately, it may be too cloudy over her location to see it (and she’s not sure she’ll wake up at 5am) but perhaps the conditions will be more favorable for you other listeners. http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2015-april-4 Good Morning and welcome to The Fresh Pot of Coffee on Ravenclaw Radio. It’s Friday - and that means Fondoo Review! Polyglot Scrabble (R) is scheduled tonight in the Common Room. Remember our rules, if it is recognized by yourself and at least one other player at the table as being a valid word in any language, it’s good. Kanji tiles are being knit as we speak. Merry Beasts were last seen “sneaking” loudly off to the dungeons to abscond with a wheel of cheezes. Ahem It is rumoured that RHoH SadieLou - known to the Muggles as Sadie O’...
