Ah. My brother the law student.
"The duck flies at midnight! The fat man walks alone! The cat's in the cradle and the dog made the milk go sour, but I really can't talk politics right now, Penny!"
Uh. Yeah. I think somebody put a cell phone in his hand after a few too many pints. Current Mood: amused

Okay, that meeting
went famously bad. Yeah, okay, my curriculum was fine, I can teach children the alphabet, reading, writing, basic arithmetic among other things.
But I still can't speak around Percy Weasley. I'm pretty sure I was speaking English, but all I remember saying was, "Blah blah blah..." I thought for a moment that I could pretend he was James, but as James was dark-haired, dark eyed, no glasses, that was a no-go as I don't pretend quite that well, and if I overestimated myself, who knows what I could have wound up saying?
Shoot me now. No, I need curry. Indian, and then you can shoot me. Current Mood: blah

Goodness. I almost think that I like working at Flourish and Blotts more than teaching. Give me until the end of August, I won't be saying that then. I've always loved this place...
it was the place I saw Percy for the first time, who, by the way, I still hold a torch for. Good lord does my patheticness know no end?
Ah well. We got in a new book today: Quality Quidditch Stories
. Fun stuff that they left out of Quidditch Through the Ages
. Like about how the Kenmare Kestrels won three league championships in a row on a diet of nothing but hard liquor two days prior to the match. I admit it, I was absolutely floored.
I'm not usually one for Quidditch unless it's watching, but, wow.
And, this journal entry turned into a book review pretty quick. ::is pathetic:: Current Mood: complacent

Today I am 31.
I... is that a grey hair?
Oh, no. Just the light.Phew.

Aah. The nursery school is closed until September. I wished the students a happy summer, cleaned up one last finger paint mess, sent them on their way home, and then kicked up my heels for awhile. One week and then I will spend my days in Flourish and Blotts.
Sigh. Drive me crazy. Current Mood: relaxed

It is May already. Which means in about four weeks I will be out of the teaching job until September. Thusly I will be forced to go back to seasonal work at Flourish and Blotts. Which I like, but not as much as teaching. It's nice at Flourish and Blotts during the summer. There's always a new book that screams coming out, or something of the like.
Or maybe that's just the Ravenclaw in me.

My mum and dad have been gone for five hours.
May it never be said that Roger and his nephew are not my heroes. <3
EDIT: She POLISHED my COMBAT BOOTS.
::fumes:: This is war. Current Mood: relaxed

Get my parents away from me or away from my flat. I really don't care which. ::anguishes and languishes away, falls off the chair:: Current Mood: Help Me.

I got home today, and this message was on my machine:
"Penelope, love, this is your mother. Are you dead?! Your father and I want to see you and Jeremy, we never get to anymore! It's like... we don't have children anymore. First you go to magic school at eleven, and then you move to London the second you leave there. And your brother does the same. Do you ever see him either? Or is it just me he avoids?"
[To interlude: No, I am not dead, Jeremy is my brother, I do see him, and it is definitely
"Anyway, I have to go. I'm just saying that your father and I are taking the train down on Friday afternoon and we'll be there by Friday evening. You don't mind if we stay at your flat, do you? Ta, Penelope. Good-bye."
::looks around messy flat:: ::makes faces:: ...GAH! Current Mood: panicky

So I told Mandy that I'd be at her bar opening on Saturday. It sounds like fun. Roger, would you be interested in
|Tuesday, April 1st, 2003|
Children are such little miracles. What I wouldn't give to have the mindset of a child again, where everything is new and exciting and there are so many things to learn.
Speaking of learning, there was yet again
a call from James to me explaining alimony is going to suck his balls this month. ::sigh:: I told him I didn't give a damn about alimony, if anything, I
should probably be paying him
Maybe I'll hex him and give him what-for, maybe he'll get it then.
I'll just put "James Paying Alimony That I Don't Want or Need" on my "List of Things That Will Most Likely Never Happen".
Ah, and some people wonder why I prefer the company of five-year-olds...
