Tricky Trivia Tuesday (#5, #6)

literati_rain66 Tuesday, February 28, 2012 , ,

Whoops! Looks like I missed a Tuesday! Last Tuesday I was busy showing my mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law around and enjoying their visit, so I completely spazzed on putting up a question. To make up for it, this week will have two questions. You can answer both, and whomever guesses correctly for one or both will get the respective entries into the Big Box of Books giveaway. :)

Don't forget to check out the details and rules HERE.

Tricky Trivia Tuesday question 1: "We'll send you a Hogwarts toilet seat." - Who says this to Ginny, in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone?

Tricky Trivia Tuesday question 2: Who wrote the following poem?

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow--
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand--
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep--while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

Ooo... Edgar Allan Poe! for number 2. I'm not a fan of poetry, but I like him.

And for #1... I'm going to say it's gotta be one of the twins. George?
