A few things that have been weighing down my mind all day. [Aug. 30th, 2003|09:38 pm]
Professor Minerva McGonagall
[Current Mood |coldcold]

For the life of me I can't understand why everyone suddenly feels it is necessary to be in a relationship with some one. It is possible to achieve happiness without it being dependant upon another.

But I must digress, because I am truly happy for Poppy. She has finally found true love at last, and that is hard to come by. She is floating on air, she is so happy. You can see it in her eyes.

I'm beginning to get very cold, and I have yet another headache. I already fear that this school year might be worse than some others. In fact, I know it will be, and the thought doesn't thrill me, to say the least.

I also have the nagging feeling that I am being kept in the dark by some people, and I don't appreciate that either. But there is nothing I can do about it, as I am not certain, so I will ignore it for now.

My room smells like smoke for no apparent reason, which is rather suspicious. I shall have to ask Dobby if he knows the reason.

Peeves. Again. It doesn't surprise me. But why on Earth am I his favorite when it comes to playing pranks? I have enough to deal with without him as well...

No, I believe I shall do without a Potion for now, but thank you for the offer, Poppy.

You are not the only one he loves to put a prank past. That's fine and you are most welcome, but please do inform me if it get's a bit much, all right Minerva?

You are his favorite because you let it bother you the most, likely.

Unfortunately, I think you are correct, and also unfortunately I doubt I can change that.

Poltergeists can't drink tea, Severus.

Honestly, Severus, do you think that Peeves will act any better towards me if I invite him to drink tea when he can't?

well it'd be a matter of timing. If you did that instead of fuming and ranting post-joke it might.

Oh, for Heaven's sake, Severus. If I asked Peeves to tea he'd laugh and torment me more.

It can't get much worse can it?

You can do one of two things:

Fight fire with fire- pull a prank on him, if there's one you *can* pull on him.

Fight fire with water- kill the mother-- I'll keep it clean. Kill him with kindness, don't invite him in for tea, exactly. Just gradually start to treat him better, and don't react to his pranks. Kind of laugh it off on the outside... And if that doesn't work after a little while, fight fire with a big scary Minerva lecture. Those are enough to turn anyone pale!

He's a poltergeist. He's already pale.

I doubt we shouyld be saying phrases such as 'kill the mother' publicly, Serena.
