I am writing in my journal at the request of no-one, professor, student, or otherwise.|
I have put away my heaviest cloak, hopefully until next winter, and I am glad that the harsh winter weather is abating. This was especially convienient timing because I did not have to carry my heavy cloak as Pansy and I visited Hogsmeade together last weekend. I had an enjoyable experience of it, as per usual, though I have been informed of a rumour that we were acting inappropriately in the Three Broomsticks. This petty gossip is utterly false. She merely was fixing my tie, nothing more, and nothing less. We are, of course, a married couple, but we aren't Ravenclaws.
I purchased a Quick Quotes Quill at Schrivenshaft's. It is far more convienient than a standard quill, and reduces the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome, as well, althouth it is hardly the most reliable of tools. When writing my History of Magic essay, the quill inserted adjectives such as "chartreuse", "mucilaginous", and "tempestuous" in the place of the intended goblin epithets. I do not believe goblins would know such words - I do not believe they know many words with more than a single syllable - and I especially do not understand how "Ludwig the Lazy" translates into "Ludwig the Lascivious".
Since my last correspondence with home, my mother has joined a club. I would have regarded this as extraordinarily out-of-character for her, as she usually is the one to start the clubs, being a lady of status as she is. However, this was an Anti-Mrs-Denixxar Club, formed entirely for the purpose of avoiding and excluding that loathsome woman. I have no problem with her joining that sort of club. It may do her good, and I hear she likes it. Thankfully am attached, and therefore unable to be engaged to any more spoiled Durmstrang brats. I consider her membership in the Anti-Mrs-Denixxar Club as further insurance that the events of summers past are not repeated.
