The first week

has gone by quickly. Violent (YES, I know what her name is this one suites her, trust me) is in two of my classes. Potions and herbology.

I am trying not to get cranky with her when she says (which is quite often) "We do things better at Beauxbatons or At my old school we did things better." I am sure things were different there and maybe there done better, but you can not make friends by saying that all of the time. seriously, just go with the flow...

She is getting some of her old books from her Father and I am excited about that. WE talk endlessly about potions. Prof. Slughorn has been rather tedious to deal with since neither of us are his 'pet favorites.' We made our class project perfectly and he gave us a passing. On the way out, I slimed his chair. :)

Minee is still turning green, today is her last day of that.

My roommates are great and we are getting along so far. I am glad we have the largest room between the two dogs and all of our fiber products, potions, herbs and books, there is little room to move about.

I really should take a picture of our room.

Off to find my cheerleading outfit they hid on me.

I can not stop laughing this week. Poor Minerva Kwikspell keeps turning GREEN and Madam Pomfrey can not stop it from happening nor understand why it is happening so sporadically.

I have also seen some Hufflepuff girls I think they are first terms turning into Canaries. Poor Dears, I thought we were not going to see another case of that again. This is not my doing...HONESTLY

Time for me to go find Violent and make something happen in Potions then we are off to Herbology.

turn around,

is fair play right?!

As most of you know I left Ravenclaw this term and became Slytherin. And as most of you know I have a sweet tooth. I went to my favorite place to get some candy, Ms Minerva Kwikspell and while I was giving the new student Violent Black a tour of Hogwarts me being me I shared my candy with her and a short while later Violent is on her way to visit Madame Pomfrey.

All I have to say is someone is going to be turning green off and on during the first day of school.

I spent the day with Violent Black. She is nice, a bit snotty she ate all of my candy too. Going to have to be carefull around her, since I now know she has a sweet tooth too.
I hope Minee has some for sale so I can restock.

We do have the same interests in books and we both HATE divination with a passion. "Death is at your door." oooo...what garbage...please tell me something useful.

Violent said she would help me learn French. I think that will be funny to hear me speak French with my Mid-Western accent.

Isis is doing her back scratch on the carpet and groaning and grunting. I wonder if she is part pig?

Today while I had my nose in a book an owl dropped me a package. It is from my new dorm mate, Lavender Diggory-Dolohov. She is Head Girl this term and I am a Prefect. Still not sure how that happened but the Professors know what they are doing right?

See all of my goodies?

!the house cats thought the package smelled good too.
Bo, is visiting Isis before term starts show off their goodies.

there are 3 THREE skeins of Cascade yarn, a journal, reading glasses, a blow horn and pom-poms for cheer leading during Quidditch, a Slytherin patch, an Owl of my very own (cause i do not have one),and my favorite, snap snot.

It is a slow quiet morning waking up in a new dorm room. Isis has taken up most of the bed. I am still in amazement that a dog who is only 24 inches tall and 36 inches long can do that. Plus she burrowed under the covers and managed to take most of them too.

Isis is not magical like Grimm but she gets along with him just fine. It is funny watching them together because she is all dog and pretty much a spaz running, sniffing, digging, and rolling in whatever suites her fancy.
She crawled into that box and sat in front of the heater vent. She is my gift of giggles.

I was asked to be Prefect in Slytherin House and so far there has been alot of use of Muggle computers and spreadsheets. As of this morning we only have 3 people that have not updated their blogs. There have been emails and PMs sent out so it is our hope it gets done today.

It really does not take that long to do it. sigh..
