The Last Quidditch Match

Well, the final quidditch match of the term was played today. And this time I actually remembered to show up to the match. Okay, so I was a tad late but I was eating a late lunch. I got pretty excited when I found a clue but had problems figuring it out. Then it was all over when the head 'Puffball found the snitch. At least I don't have to listen to the twin sister rave on about a Ravenclaw win. But on the downside, now we have to deal with the inflated egos of the 'Puffballs. And speaking of the 'Puffballs, I wonder what has happened to that Rufus guy. I haven't read any of his moronic ramblings for quite a spell. Not that I really care anyway. Hopefully someone got smart and locked his sorry rear in a trunk. Pfft, he is such a stupid git anyway.

Andromeda's Diary

Three weeks later...

Dear Diary,

Well it has been three weeks since Edward and his family moved away. I have been doing pretty good considering. So, I haven't even thought about dating. But I don't see anything wrong with that. The twin sister Avada thinks I have gone loopy. I have been spending quite a bit of time at the Hog's Head. Every time I go there, I get the feeling that I am being watched. There is this one guy who keeps staring at me although he hasn't made any moves to come over and chat with me. It does make me wonder if I am giving off the "leave me alone" vibes. I have heard through the grapevine that this guy works over at Quality Quidditch Supplies in Diagon Alley. It does make me wonder why he would be hanging out in such a shady place like the Hog's Head. I will have to admit that he is rather good looking. And not in a pretty boy way like Edward was. I mean in a "hot looking guy whom I would let have his way with me" way. Anyway, I am going back tonight so maybe I might "accidentally" bump into him. Until then...

Halloween 2008

Here is the glorious picture of the little boys and I dressed up for Halloween this year. Of course I am in my Slytherin school uniform. The only thing I didn't make was the robes. But they were not necessary. One day I plan on sewing them up. The 6 yr old is dressed up as Ironman and the not-quite 3yr old is dressed up as a pirate. Both boys had tons of fun trick or treating in downtown Hillsboro.
