An Owl

Yesterday the last owl I was waiting on came bearing something rather cool for my swap partners package. It will be perfect for a Ravenclaw. I had a Muggle make it special for her. I'll have to do some checking, but I think I'm ready to send the package by Owl Post.

There have been students in other houses trying to sabotage the other houses chances at Quidditch. Well, the Gryffindors are far too clever to fall for their silly tricks, and we would never stoop so low as to do that to the rest of the school. It says a lot that other students think they have to trick us to win though!

Hogwarts Sock Swap 3

Oh I just got my partner for Hogwarts Sock Swap 3. I'm so excited- she's from a house I've never had a partner from before!
I really hope doing two HP swaps with the same character name and blog won't be too confusing to everyone... I'll try to be specific about the whole thing.

Muggle Shopping

Went shopping in a Muggle knitting shop for more treats for my swap partners package. I think the time to send owls better come soon or I will need more than one owl to carry my package!

Pelted With Owls

Thank you to all of my class mates for all of the owls bearing birthday messages yesterday. I did have a great day! I spent some time in the Room of Requirement where a Muggle telephone appeared for me. I come from an all Muggle family and they just don't have the hang of owls. So after a few phone call from them I was able to spend some time with my Gryffindor pals. It seems I missed out on a bit of fun while I was gone. The Headmistress mentioned something about ferrets in the kitchens or some such thing. Rumor has it that Gryffindor is responsible for the situation... Gryffindors are very well behaved you know. Well, sometimes anyway!

Gryffindor House Quiz

The first quiz of the term for the Gryffindors of HSKS4! Hope I do well...

Hogwarts Hogwarts hoggy warty Hogwarts teach us something please. Whether we be old and bald or young with scabby knees. Our heads could do with filling with some interesting stuff. For now they're bare and full of air, dead flies and bits of fluff. So teach us things worth knowing. Bring back what we've forgot. Just do your best we'll do the rest and learn until our brains all rot.

My favorite Professor!

Loads of girls are all excited about out new DADA and Potions teachers. I am under the impression that they are rather good looking. Just to set the record straight, there already was an amazing man teaching at Hogwarts:

He's perfect! Smart and practical and lovable. Not to mention how important he is to the Gryffindors, even though he's not head of house. How different would the school be without him? I hate to think of it... I love Hagrid!

Cheers All!

Hello everyone. I had a wonderful weekend of watching championship Quidditch matches and a quick visit to Hogsmeade. I even managed to get my potions essay finished! Today I'm off to classes. Double Potions with the Slytherins this morning then Care of Magical Creatures after lunch.
