Staff Sunday #9
Staff Sunday is a blog where you can get to know the staff OOG. Today I am joined by the Head of Slytherin, Emelie Olsen, for a lovely interview.

- From : Thomas Wilder






Welcome back to Staff Sunday! The blog where all the users of the site have a change of getting to know the staff when they are not in character!


Today I am joined by the one and only Head of House, whose hair is a fiercely red as her colour on the site. You probably know her as the Head of the Slytherin snakes or you may remember her in her old green. Either way, give a warm welcome to the queen danger noodle, Emelie Olsen!


Describe yourself using only 5 words!
Restless, crazy, perfectionist, obsessive, wanderlust.


Your life quote/motto!
My dad taught me two things as a kid which has stuck with me. The first one is "Ask for forgiveness, not permission", and to me, that means: Go for what you want, not what people want you to do, and then when that leads to you crossing someone or stepping on their toes; ask for forgiveness. The second is hard to translate, but it translates to something like "The crazy ones are doing well", to me this is like be you, be crazy, be into what you like, find your thing... And so on. Because being you, and being crazy about the things you love (or simply being crazy) is gonna make you so very much happier than trying to be normal.


What is one thing you could not live without and why?
My voice. Seriously, I almost never stop talking. And if I did not have a voice I would have to sign, not that signing is bad, but on phone, I would have to text people.... And that I hate. I prefer calling, because I suck at explaining and would rather tell you, and then tell you something else that you probably do not care about after I have told you the thing I called you for. Yeah, I ramble. My phonecalls will always become longer than intended. And I speak veeeeery fast, so I know everyone talk faster than they text, but I talke a whole lot faster, like many kilometers per hour faster.... So then it is quicker to call you to tell you, than to text, obviously. My friends and family do not like my obsession about calling instead of texting though. Rude.

Oh, and I can not live without otters and baby goats. If you do not understand why then (I do not want to know you) go to Youtube and look at videos of otters, and then of baby goats. If you still do not understand........................ You are a lost cause.


What is something you would never do?
In general: Nothing. I am the kinda person that wants to know and try everything. But of course I would not hurt animals, or do something cruel like that. And also I am limited by the fact that I can not be upside down, so I could never go to Australia... Kidding, I am not that stupid, but I can not go bungee jumping (except if there is anywhere you do not hang upside down), nor can I take rollercoasters that go upside down :(


What is your favourite thing about WoP and why?
Me. And mocking Wilder. Why? I am awesome, and Wilder is Wilder.



So that's all for this time! I hope you enjoyed the blog and Emelie's answers just as much as I did! And as a primary source, I can tell you for a fact, that I enjoy teasing her as much as she enjoys teasing me. It's a danger noodle vs pussycat thing. I will be back with another Staff Sunday blog next week so stay tuned!
