This journal was thrust upon me a couple of months ago, but I haven't touched it since, as it had disappeared temporarily - probably to the place where my socks seem to be hiding (or where someone's hiding them, though I cannot imagine why anyone would be interested in my dirty old socks especially since most of them have holes in them).
Ahem. Anyway, it was in my rucksack today, though I cannot remember ever putting it there. Very odd.

Congratulations to Ravenclaw! Now, how does that saying go...?
Oh yeah – go team go! I hope I got it right.

Two and a half
I'd love to have a hat like Lovegood's. I doubt I'd wear it in public, though. Maybe in private, though I can't see a context in which something like that could happen.

It seems one of the first-years had detention with Umbridge, and has returned to our common room in a terrible state. She's refused to talk to anyone, and even got aggressive when her friend asked what was wrong. What did that woman do to her?
(As if it wasn't bad enough that she's refused to liberate the book on Dark creatures I needed for my research on Hinkypunks, and had the gall to suggest I check Fantastic Beasts if I ever needed anything. Since she's not stupid – though she likes to treat us as if we are – I can only assume she thinks it's funny.)

What in Rowena's name was a slice of custard pie doing next to my pillow? Did the house elves leave it there? Am I sleep-walking now?

And where the hell are my socks??

Why are your socks underneath my pillow?
Nov. 25th, 2007 01:50 pm (UTC)
I have no idea. Maybe the person who left me that slice of pie put them there?
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:01 pm (UTC)
There's four of them but none of them are pairs. One even appears to be a toe sock. Do you want them back?
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:05 pm (UTC)
Wait, I don't have any toe socks. It seems I'm not the only person whose things have been missplaced.
I'll have a look at them, though. It might help locate whoever owns that one, or what has been happening.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:08 pm (UTC)
I just noticed two "Ls" embroidered into the toe sock, and it is smaller than all the others. It must be Lovegood's. Will you take it down to her or will I?

Don't make me go. Last time I spoke to her she asked me what on earth a Kelpie was doing in our band.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:16 pm (UTC)
I'll take it. People keep stealing her things, so she might give me a few names. Besides, it's no problem. She might talk about things even I think are strange, but at least she doesn't call me "teddy bear."
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:35 pm (UTC)
Perhaps there's a sock thief in Ravenclaw. Look for someone with an extra foot! He's the likely culprit!

Or perhaps we just need to tidy up the dorm.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:13 pm (UTC)
This is ridiculous. How can people's mismatched socks end up under other people's pillows!

Now, I know I am chaotic, but I've never been THAT disorganised!
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:17 pm (UTC)
He can borrow mine in the meantime. Or perhaps someone other than me can ask Lovegood to knit him some extra ones.

And why is it that I feel personally responsible for him?
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:22 pm (UTC)
Look, I'll buy him a few pairs, if it means he can hold onto them and their whereabouts.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:25 pm (UTC)
I think it becomes even more ridiculous if we consider the fact that one of the socks not only isn't mine, but it seems to belong to a fourth-year girl with whom I've only talked once or twice.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:26 pm (UTC)
I feel sane in comparison to all this.

That's not good.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:33 pm (UTC)
Looks like she can't hang on to her socks either.

Maybe you've just found your soulmate.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:50 pm (UTC)
I hardly know the girl!
Nov. 28th, 2007 01:49 pm (UTC)
If she's your soulmate then you've known her your whole life. Apparently.
Nov. 28th, 2007 02:57 pm (UTC)
Well, that rules her out, then. And anyone else.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:06 pm (UTC)
Uh. I don't know if I can answer any of your questions. What is a slice of pie doing next to your pillow?

Could you tell me the name of that first year? Maybe I can coax it out of her.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:13 pm (UTC)
I think her name is Letitia or something.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:19 pm (UTC)
Thanks alot, Rolf.

Um, I hope you sort out your custard pie dilemma. And Merton's sock dilemma.

Boy, am I glad to be in my dorm.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:36 pm (UTC)
Letty's my sister. You know, the barker? I'll try and sort this out.
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:28 pm (UTC)
Letitia? As in my sister Letty?
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:31 pm (UTC)
Now that you mention it, I do see some resemblance...
Nov. 25th, 2007 02:34 pm (UTC)
Oh, brilliant. That's just spiffing. Well, that explains a lot.
Nov. 26th, 2007 09:34 am (UTC)
2: Thank you!

3: I'll see if I can have find out anything about that first-year. Poor girl.

Private to Rolf Scamander

I've Prefect patrols, but I'll pass along a book entitled The Construction of the Pennifold Quaffle to one of your dormmates to lend to you.

It's not ACTUALLY a Quidditch book. It'll have the information you need, however as it is one of the books that Professor Lupin had recommended back in the day.
Nov. 26th, 2007 10:16 am (UTC)
It seems the girl is the Mallorys' kid sister, so they're worried. If you, or anyone else, manages to talk to her, I'm sure they'll want to know what happened.
I'd look for the girl and tell them myself, but they're a scary bunch. Luke wears black stuff with creepy things written on it and wears make-up, and Leanne likes to pinch my cheeks.

Private to Roger Davies:
Thank you. It's been really hard to search for information on any Dark creatures this year, thanks to Umbridge, so every thing I can find that might help me is appreciated. Professor Hagrid has been a great help, but since most of his knowledge comes from personal experience there are some historical and scientific details he's been unable to provide.

Custard pie, Rolf? I have no idea. Do even like custard pie?
Nov. 27th, 2007 06:54 pm (UTC)
Not really. That's what makes it so strange.
Nov. 27th, 2007 08:10 pm (UTC)
Were you dreaming about clowns?
Nov. 27th, 2007 08:32 pm (UTC)
Actually, I had a dream about leprechauns on rollerskates.
Nov. 27th, 2007 08:35 pm (UTC)
My cousin sometimes transfigures objects on his bedside table into objects from his dreams whilst he's asleep. But it doesn't sound like you're doing that.
Nov. 27th, 2007 09:03 pm (UTC)
No, all the stuff I had on my bedside table before going to bed are still there, which rules that out. Either someone has put it there, or I'm now sleepwalking.
Nov. 27th, 2007 05:46 pm (UTC)
They left a whole plate of donuts on my bedside table once. Confused me a bit until I remembered I'd gone for a kitchen raid the day before and specifically asked for donuts, which they didn't have. It would seem they were so keen to please they made a batch specially.
Nov. 27th, 2007 07:05 pm (UTC)
That makes sense. Though I never asked for custard pie, they could have misunderstood something.
It doesn't explain how my socks got under Merton's pillow, though. Maybe Ravenclaw Tower is being tended by a house elf taken to smoking Herbie's stash silly stuff?
Nov. 27th, 2007 08:18 pm (UTC)
It's possible. No reason why they shouldn't have some pleasures in life other than serving us, right?
