Happy birthday to my most wonderful sister!! Today we are going to pamper ourselves as we so richly deserve.

Mar. 9th, 2014

My cat's gone missing. We're up at this cabin and she doesn't know her way and she could be anywhere and everyone's gone Muggle stick jumping and I can't find her anywhere.

What if she tried to go home?

She's white and fluffy and she has blue eyes and I'll never find her in this snow.

If you wanted to dine at the Glass Slipper for Valentine's Day but haven't made your reservations yet, sorry. You're too late.

[ private to Andrei ]

I wonder if you might help me with something.

I dreamt of Alexander again. We were dancing at a party and it was so nice, but then I had to go and -- pick something up from I'm not sure where? And instead I just kept walking and walking for what seemed like hours and it was dark and I was worried I wouldn't get there, but I don't think I even knew where there was. And then I woke up.

Sometimes I want to owl him but that wouldn't be appropriate. I certainly couldn't tell him he was in my dream.

My kitten keeps getting bigger. I wish there was a way I could make her stay tiny and cute forever.

Which sounds less unpleasant, hiking or canoeing? If you were being tricked into had to choose to do one or the other, which I'm not saying I'm agreeing to do.

My kitten is perfect and she needs a name!!

I don't think it's very nice to kiss a girl and then never say anything to her ever.

Jul. 17th, 2013

I touched a finger today. A finger that was not attached to a body. A HUMAN finger.

This is the most disgusting thing that has ever happened to me in the history of ever. Susan, I'm going to need like a gallon of bath stuff to get this feeling off of me.

I deserve to have only good and lovely things happen to me for the rest of the day. Or week. Or month.

[ Taliesyn ]

Your brother is trying to play a joke on me and it isn't funny at all and he should cut it out.

[ Private to Daphne ]

I know I've left a few things behind but I can come collect them once I am permanently settled elsewhere. Or you can always send them to Mum & Dad if you must get them out of your way. I would hate to further infringe upon your space.

I've been staying with Ophelia but her couch is horrible and lumpy and she won't let me share with her I don't want to overstay my welcome so I'm going to Sabina's next. In case you need to reach me.

[ Private to self ]

Reasons to go home:
Bonko will take care of me
Won't run into Daphne around town
Can quit job... and I don't know...

Reasons to stay:
Ophelia & Sabina nearby
Daphne nearby if she is nice to me again
Sort of like job sometimes
Will have no one to talk to but Mum and Dad and Bonko and nothing to talk about at all ever and will die of boredom and desolation

[ Private to Ophelia ]

May I come stay with you please? Daphne's cross with me for absolutely no good reason and I just need to stay somewhere else for a bit. Just for a little while, until she changes her mind.

In case any of you were thinking of inviting me to partner with you for the dance-off, you needn't bother, because I don't enjoy physical exertion, even for a good cause. I'm not opposed to all forms of dancing of course, but the idea of doing it for hours and hours without rest is entirely unappealing.

I do however plan to attend and watch, assuming it doesn't start smelling overwhelmingly like an athletic event. So who should I be cheering for?

[ Ophelia ]

So... have you read these books everyone keeps talking about?

Jun. 16th, 2013

Well! Another Sunday and still no correction in the Sunday Prophet. They have yet to run a retraction of the hideous lies they printed about my dear friend Ophelia Selwyn, despite the fact that I have written to them not once but twice to set the record straight (just in case the first owl got lost.) Clearly they would rather spread vicious rumours than actually inform the public, so I'm taking it upon myself to make sure everyone knows the real story -- and Gavin MacDougal's true character.

Let it be known that Gavin MacDougal-- nephew of Xavier Orpington and former fiancé of Ophelia Selwyn-- broke off their engagement for no reason besides the fact that he was trying to butter up his horrible rat-faced uncle so he could get his hands on his money. Apparently Mr Orpington didn't approve of the match-- despite the fact that Ophelia is lovely and entirely worthy of approval-- and Gavin Mr MacDougal would rather line his pockets than honour his commitment to his future wife.

Now that there is apparently no will, I hope that somehow means that Mr Orpington's galleons slip right through his fingers and he ends his days penniless and alone, because it would serve him right.

There you have it. Just the facts-- you'll notice I have refrained from editorialising or speculating. If I had a subscription to the Prophet, I would cancel it. If that's what passes for journalism these days, we're in a sorry state indeed.

[ Zacharias ]

Why are you selling your Quidditch things?

Jun. 2nd, 2013

[ Daphne ]

In case I forget to tell you, we're having tea with Taliesyn Robards. He's weird and I didn't want to go alone. I didn't want him to think it was a date. But maybe you'll like him?

Also in case I forget to tell you, you are the BEST SISTER EVER. ♥ ♥ ♥ I'm sorry I got sick on your bath mat.

Last year on my birthday we had such a big lovely party and announced the engagement and he gave me the ring and I drank so much champagne and let him kiss my neck and I was so, so so happy. I just want to be that happy again and I don't know how.

I don't know why I thought Idris Robards might owl me. He didn't and now I hate him.

The only good thing about my birthday this year was seeing Bonko. And his chocolate cake. And Daphne helped me when I got sick and she still hasn't asked me to leave so I suppose that's good.


[ Public ]

I've taken inspiration from Mr Radford and applied some charms to my journal to elevate the level of discourse. From now on, whenever Heidi MacDonald mentions her unmentionables, my journal will display "fluffy white kitten" instead.

Heidi, I'm relieved to know your fluffy white kitten has been returned to you. I'm sure it was rather frightened, being out there in the world, unwanted and uncared for.

May. 4th, 2013

Well I certainly feel better knowing they've made an arrest! I was starting to question the competence of our Law Enforcement after they detained all of us innocent citizens for hours. I'm just glad to have it all over with.

May. 3rd, 2013

[ Private to Ophelia ]

You know, not to be entirely unfeeling, but I can't help but feel like this can only work out in your benefit. At least, I hope so.

Have you been in touch with Gavin since it happened? If so, please give him my condolences I guess.

And let me know if we can celebrate the renewal of your engagement at any point...
