Thank You Lavender Ackerly

I am so excited! Have you seen my lovely purple hair? Thank you so much, Lavender, for thinking of me. I have been asking my parents for ever so long to allow me to dye my hair purple and they keep telling me no. But now, because Lavender was thoughtful enough to put purple dye in my shampoo, I have my lovely purple hair. Aren't you jealous?

Oh, Lavender, I hope you don't get in too much trouble. My parents are not happy and I overheard them talking about an appointment with Miss Wartbobble.

Being the shy, humble person I am, why post 1 picture on photo day when you can post 3! Being a Ravenclaw, seems only appropriate.

Me with one my favorite people in the whole wide word!

One of my many alter-egos.

My dad, siblings and me.

The Perfect Mate

So who is the man of my dreams? The man who will sweep me off my feet? Will he be a wizard? A professor? A Muggle?

Your result for The Harry Potter Husband Test...

Mrs. Weasley Twin

Laughter is important to you. You want a guy who's never boring, who can always put a smile on your face, and who can pull the best of pranks and never get caught. Or possibly two such guys. Because let's face it, they're pretty much a two-fer. You get one, you get both. Even if one of them's only a friend, he'll still be around so much you'll feel like you're married to him, too. Sure, they may not seem like the most mature guys in the world, in a traditional sense, but just ask them about their business plan. When they drive you nuts by relentlessly testing their latest inventions on you, you can console youself with that huge stack of cash and dragon-leather jacket. Besides, you know you're powerless against those stereo smiles.

Updating School Records

At the start of every school term, we get asked the same questions. Wouldn't you think that they had all this info already? And where does all this parchment get stored? I've never seen any old records in the lower levels of Hogwarts when I've been down there. None in the upper reaches as well.

Is there a brand that you are dying to try?: I've only tried Lantern Moon.

A New Term at Hogwarts

I'm so excited for the start of a new term at Hogwarts! There is so much activity around Ravenclaw Tower. There are first years dragging trunks up and down stairways looking totally baffled and lost. I do hope that the Slytherins can control themselves and not direct all these poor new students in the wrong directions. It was sad to see wide eyed first years terrified and stranded on the moving staircases last term. Let's hope they can all make it safely to their dorms without being permanently scarred!

Of course, I've been busy readying the Common Room. We have a new House Elf this term. Hopefully by the end of the week we'll know her name.

Oh..I see the new DADA Professor arriving! I'm off to welcome him as only I can do!
