House quiz part 2

Professor Snape was having a terrible morning, and it wasn't even breakfast yet. Someone broke into the Runes classroom the night before, hid a Boggart in the closet, and set loose 67 doxies. How did he know there were 73 doxies? Because each one took a bite out of his eyelid as he tried to capture it, and Madame Pomfrey had to danced each wound separately. And comment annoyingly about how Professor Moody would've had the room cleared out with 2 waves of a wand.

It took forever to get out of the infirmary, and by then Professor Snape was in a foul mood. Luckily, he knew how to improve it: by finding the culprits and making him, her or them pay. Snape had overheard some students giggling in the hallways the other day about Lily May's stash of doxy eggs, so he had a good idea of who to interrogate first. Unfortunately for him, but rather fortunately for Lily May, the common room password had recently been changed to Edinburgh Electrics, so Snape couldn't enter. Helga Hufflepuff looked up from her portrait and laughed at the cursing, frustrated Professor.

The old Professor Snape would have thrown a hissy fit at being taunted by a mere portrait, and blasted the thing all the way into the 4th floor girl's bathroom. The new Professor Snape went to -16 weeks of Anger Management classes, punched a lot of pillows, and took up knit. And started subscribing to the Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes catalogue.

Professor Snape's first class off the day was runes with the 3rd year Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaw. It took them 2 hours to clean up after the entire carton of Moody that went off and clung to their robes, schoolbooks, and any exposed flesh. The students all knew that Lily May was planning to do something in runes to get Professor Snape, so everyone blamed (him/her) for the prank and gave (him/her) the cold shoulder for 17 days, until Enna Kirts blew up the transfiguration classroom with a misplaced charm and became the new pariah-of-the-hour.

Missed the quidditch

because I had archery training. I'll be posting my fantastic bruise which now means I'm totally initiated. Plus the president insisted on spilling his pint and trying to get me with it. You'd think for an archer he would have good aim and got me, no such luck for him. He managed to get everything else though. So well done to him.

I'll put the picture up as soon as I'm done with my handmade item for Enna. It's almost done. I just have to finish about 10 rows and that's it! It should be finished tonight!
I'll be within the deadline as well, which is even better considering I wasn't sure if I would be able to get it finished on time for the early handmade item date.

Well done me!

I did it!

I managed to get out of one of my classes at school. How cool is that! Just goes to show that if you ask you can be let out, especially if you have done the class before and have gotten a good mark.

So that leaves all the more time for me to be able to study my other courses. Which is not the best, but hey I can certainly use that time.

I am now able to also use that time to start making my homemade item for Enna, which I have everything already for. I just needed the time to actually do it. So things are going well on that front!

Thank you to my professors for letting me out of that class!

Day out at Hogsmead

I was so worried that I wouldn't be able to go. For some odd reason, my father totally forgot to sign my permission slip. I was going to be totally gutted being the only one left behind, I hate being left behind.

I was fortunate enough to get my step-mother to get a hold of him, who knows where he is with his job! Anyways he was able to actually come to school and tell the Headmistress that I was able to go. Close call I tell you! Mind, my father kept looking at me strangely for some odd reason, but I only figured out why later.

So off I go, of course Ollie tagged along. He's well interested in traveling especially to magical places. So we wandered, well actually I wandered he was in coat pocket peeking out of the button hole, down the main street.

He wanted to go to the shrieking shack, I told him there was no point as it was abandoned and it wasn't scary at all ever since the older students figured it out. He was all geared up for some scary stuff. Stupid spider!

So we continued along our way when an older guy, well he's about 22, came up to me and asked me if I wanted to join him and his friends at The three broomsticks for some butterbeer. Now I'm totally wondering what is going on, some joke or something. But he was totally serious about me going, so what could I do? So I went. In we all pile and order pints of butterbeer, and have a few games of wizard chess, and something called dominoes. Apparently it's a muggle game, I'm going to have to ask one of the other students about it. A pretty fun game, little tiles with dots on them and you line them up with the same dots facing each other. I beat everyone at that game.

Eventually I had to nip to the toilet and discovered why my father was looking at me strangely, and why the older guys invited me out. Remember that shrinking potion I took during the summer? Well I made myself a growing potion to get me back to myself, but I think I over did it a bit. I have aged myself a little bit while growing too, which is good to know for future things. So I was taller and older looking which was why I had no trouble getting into the three broomsticks. Hmm will wonders never cease!

The boys decided that we should go to Honeydukes for some sweets. So many things in there! They had some samples which the boys were more than happy to help devour. After buying some things for later, the boys decided that we needed to go to the hogshead. I'm coming to the conclusion that we are doing a pub crawl, but there are only two, so we might be going back and forth between them.

Hogshead was a little more strange than the three broomsticks, but hey we had some more beer, and games there as well. I read their fortunes in the bowl of nuts and pretzel sticks that seemed to have come from no where. After the group of sheep arrived we decided it was getting a little crowded for us, so back we went back to the three broomsticks.

It was getting late, and the school was leaving, I had to make up the excuse that I was a trainee teacher and had to see my students back to Hogwarts. I'm glad they bought that excuse!

I really liked The three broomsticks best of all, as well as the company. Too bad I'm a little too young for any of the guys in real life. Then again, when did that stop me?
