Right, so. I'm now officially adding "my parents drunk" to the list of things that I would Never Like To See Again, Ever. Especially when they ended up getting completely shitefaced on, of all things, prissy brand-name chocolate liqueur. Who even does that, besides randy Sixth Year girls who fancy themselves foxy and cultured? No one, that's who, and I truly believe that Noah and Pat are scarred for life.

A pity, really.

Although not as pitiful as spending your New Years with your slurring mum and dad and freshly scarred siblings.

That's right, pity away. Although, honestly, it was loads more entertaining that being puked on and grabbed inappropriately by Ministry gophers, which is what I did last year. My favorite robes were ruined and my tits are still sore from it.

Fuck, my hands are cold. I'm bloody done with this thing unless it can magically become more entertaining than my History of Scandinavian Runes. Thus far, the Runes are in the lead.

Reading about your parents isn't much better.

Poor, poor little baby.

It was a point I was making, a point that you missed. All the whinging isn't that impressive. It's not really our faults you're surrounded by superiority.

Oh, irony.

I'm not surprised you spent your hols single, but I am surprised some blokes were able to find your chest, let alone squeeze it! Fascinating.
Marlene McKinnon: her mocking smile says it allanticlaw on August 4th, 2007 05:44 am (UTC)
Right, I'm not even sure what that insult was supposed to mean. Is it that I'm too short, too tall or flat chested?

Your chest, McKinnon, is concaved.

Oh THAT's why I missed you at the Ministry shindig! Scamander made me go. I wasn't grabbed by anyone, though, which is just as well. Did you know they use the same mistletoe every single year? Merlin knows what nasties have infested that stuff. I might include it in next week's radio show.

Sybill and I are flat hunting. Hunting for flats! Wot, that sounds funny, they're not animals after all. We're going to have a party once we find one. You should come and bring your Runes book with you. That way, if we're boring (or if the rum runs out! YES, Sybill insists that we have rum), you can sit in a cosy corner and read it instead.
Marlene McKinnon: i think it's called my destinyanticlaw on August 4th, 2007 06:30 am (UTC)
That would be why. Although I doubt the Ministry wants loiterers like my hanging about with nothing to contribute besides Keeper gloves and terrible liqueur.

Sounds excellent to me, thanks, I'll be there whenever you find one. I'm hardly the type of girl to turn down an invitation of rum and books. Just keep an eye out for suspicious stains and animal droppings and I'm sure you two'll be just fine.
X LVGD: days of thunderdirigere on August 4th, 2007 06:39 am (UTC)
Oh, no, animal droppings never hurt anyone. In fact, they'd be brilliant for the herb garden. Always wanted one of those, but my mother preferred fruit trees, never mind that crab apples are supposed to be bad luck for avoiding baldness. So much jelly! Every day for breakfast, scones with crab apple jelly, or porridge with crab apple jelly, or toast with crab apple jelly. I promise you Sybill and I will never stock it. Strictly marmalade from now on.
Marlene McKinnon: the only soldier now is meanticlaw on August 4th, 2007 07:02 pm (UTC)
Well, ah, marmalade's good too.
Fabian Prewett: slightly smiley.fabium on August 4th, 2007 03:23 pm (UTC)
Before the flat-has-been-found party, we should have a flat-hunting party. Tomorrow, yes? Sybill has brilliant taste in rum... in that she always knows to bring rum.
X LVGD: and by summer falldirigere on August 4th, 2007 07:15 pm (UTC)
Tomorrow sounds good, I suppose because it's a flat-hunting-that-still-sounds-funny party it'll have to be your place rather than mine. I do need some advice about the herb garden. Do you know much about herbs?
Fabian Prewett: need a haircut. bad.fabium on August 4th, 2007 11:41 pm (UTC)
My place is fine. I finally got that stain off the couch! (Turned out to be olive oil. Who knew I had olive oil!)

Why do you need a herb garden?

Oh, thank the stars for you, Fabian! I was about to faint. All these listings get so confusing, and it's so hard for my Eye to focus with my mum being such a busybody all the time.
Fabian Prewett: slightly off?fabium on August 4th, 2007 11:44 pm (UTC)
How's your mum taking the 'living in sin' bit of your moving out?

And this lot is rather terrifying up close.

I'm all for the party. I never did finish my talk with your friend Edgar about captromancy when I came to see you at work the other day, and I just bought a new scyring mirror.
X LVGD: days of thunderdirigere on August 4th, 2007 08:34 pm (UTC)
Well, Edgar is very busy, but I'm sure he'll come to the party and you can finish your conversation then! Have you Seen anything with your new mirror yet?
Sybill Trelawney: 'tis a rare giftespying on August 4th, 2007 08:44 pm (UTC)
The Eye can not be turned on like a sink faucet, Xeno. Mum already made some joke about how it looked like an angry cat was going to attack my head in the future. I know she's just jealous because the gift skipped over her, though, so I won't hold it against her.

I see your place of employment is trying to outdo mine on its New Year's decorations.

Also, I think it's only 'scarring for life' if they tried to conceive a new sibling for you while the others watched. And then the planets have to align a little more, so they have to be on the coffee table with the family photo album supporting your mum. Preferably opened to your first day of school? Scarring for life is a pretty big deal.
Marlene McKinnon: her mocking smile says it allanticlaw on August 4th, 2007 07:02 pm (UTC)
Should I be worried that you seem to know all the steps for scarring a child for life?
Fabian Prewett: straight ahead to the new frontier!fabium on August 4th, 2007 11:51 pm (UTC)
I have a lot of nephews. You learn pretty quickly what will or won't have them staring at you and twitching for days.

And how are you, Marlene? Scarring, drinking, groping, partying, bitching, and other participles aside?
