Petunia sent me a birthday owl and while it was sitting on my shoulder waiting for its treat it bit me. Blasted bird took a bite out of me and took some skin so it did not get a treat. I figure my skin was treat enough for it.
Dean came over and brought his brother Sam for a visit. He brought me a present, a collection of potion books from the 1800. Now that is the best gift a girl can get.
He looks a bit tired and needs a shave too.

Harry wonders if going into the Pensive will help him survive against Voldemort. Professor Dumbledore answers neither yes nor no but says "It has a very great deal to do with the prophecy."
It is where we follow Bob Ogden's memory and see what a horrible life a family that lives only in the past and on pride can have. Years of in-breeding causing insanity to run in the Gaunt family vein. Lack of sense, delusions of grandeur squandered family gold leaves the last of Salzar Slytherin's family in poverty. Not exactly what I think he had wanted.
We meet Merope Voldemort's mother and Tom Riddle Senior. We know she used the Imperius Curse on him and quite possibly a love potion to gain access to his "love". In less than a year, Merope being delusional about love stops using both on Tom and he finally wakes up, realizes the error he made and leaves Merope pregnant.
By doing this, this pushes the already mentally fragile Merope over the edge and she slowly starts dying.
We do find out that Professor Dumbledore has found the ring-with the Perverell coat of arms engraved on the stone-, was wearing it when him and Harry went to talk with Professor Slughorn (who is an excellent POTIONS teacher). It is also left for translation, that is how the Professor injured his hand.
It now shows us that the GREAT LORD VOLDEMORT is nothing but a fake and not the Pureblood that he says he is. Carring on the great family pride and deluisions of grandeur.

Hogsmead was a fun-fun-fun time. I am so glad there is the rule of no picture taking cause some of us were rather naughty this weekend.
I went with Petunia, Violent, and Thomasina into town. They are all first years and it was rather fun. We hit all of the regular stops and picked up what we needed. Violent does need to special order somethings from France of us to use in Potions Class. Monday we did have a disaster and our project just spewed all over and kept growing and fizzing. While it was rather funny, the Professor was NOT amused. We have detention on Saturday. MY FIRST.
Violent and I agree that his ingredients were mislabeled otherwise it would not have happened. But you can not argue with the Professor because HE is never wrong.
Anyway, back to town and what happened.
We all went over to Hog's Head for a few cups of our favorite beverage and me being muggle raised, I thought I would teach the girls a bar game that we play back home. It is called QUARTERS.
You use an American quarter, a shot glass filled with your tasty shot flavor and skill. NO MAGIC.
What you do is you try to bounce the quarter into the shot glass and make a person drink the shot. You keep doing this until you miss and then it is the next person's turn. It was fun and we all became rather intoxicated in a short amount of time.
This is when Violent noticed the pool table in the corner and asked if anyone wanted to play. So, we all moved over to the pool table. I have to admit I am hopeless at this game and quickly lost the right to play for the rest of the afternoon. Violent, it seems is a pool shark and won quite a bit of money that afternoon. Petunia was good as well.
Petunia and I can not carry a tune we found out when we were doing karokee. That is the fun thing about karokee is you can be absolutely horrible and people will still like it. Although, I think a song we sang instigated a fight that trashed part of the bar. We shall take Lita Ford off of the play list and put Barry Manilow back on.
I need to gauge Petunia and her drinking much better cause she had to visit the infirmary and I had the special pleasure of wearing regurgitated firewhisey and spiked pumpkin juice.
I do believe I saw Rufus there kissing Tia and that no good Vampire was there as well doing to tonsil hockey with Petunia too..i thought he was with Andromedia.
Dean came to town and it is nice to see him.
