Yesterday, I decided to quit smoking.
Today, I bought two more packs. I'm never trying that again.
Congrats to Victor and the missus!

So. I won't be in the rest of the week. Sorry about those lunch plans we had, Lovegood.
I'm on my honeymoon.
See you on the other side people. Current Mood: cheerful

( PrivateCollapse )As I do live by food, I met a fool,
Who laid him down and basked him in the sun,
And railed on Lady Fortune in good terms,
In good set terms, and yet a motley fool.
’Good morrow, fool,’ quoth I. ‘No, sir,’ quoth he,
’Call me not fool till heaven hath sent me fortune.’
And then he drew a dial from his poke,
And looking on it with lack-lustre eye
Says very wisely ‘It is ten o’clock.’
’Thus we may see’, quoth he, ‘how the world wags.
’Tis but an hour ago since it was nine,
And after one hour more ‘twill be eleven.
And so from hour to hour we ripe and ripe,
And then from hour to hour we rot and rot;
And thereby hangs a tale.’
- As You Like It (II.vii.14–28)

Every Hallowe'en I find myself missing the feast at Hogwarts. Anyone else? Instead of great food and pumpkin juice, I'm eating candy bars snatched from Frobisher and coffee. That's about all I think I miss really from there.
Although the world stopping and revolving around Quidditch every once in awhile was nice too.

Hello world. Nice to see you.
Auror Kingsley Shacklebolt at your service.
THAT'S RIGHT WANKERS, I DID IT. AFTER STUDYING MY ARSE OFF AND ONLY TAKING A BREAK TO SEE JOHANNA'S SHOW AND BE IN HER WEDDING I BECAME A BLOODY AUROR.
Things are looking up. Current Mood: ecstatic

Anyone else really ready to become an Auror already?
I've only got four fags left, so I think someone's been nicking them off of me. Anybody want to confess to that?
Fuck I need another pack.
Oh, and I almost forgot. Don't be jealous because I'm a bridesman for Johanna's wedding. It's a tough job, but I'm just brilliant enough for it. Current Mood: determined

"The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves, that we are underlings." Julius Caesar
Act I scene ii
On a happier note:
"We that are true lovers run into strange capers; but as all is mortal in nature, so is all nature in love mortal in folly." -As You Like It
Act II scene iv
I love when things go my way. Current Mood: calm

Still working on that investment. I haven't let it come to fruition yet, but I still have hope. You never know right? Any good ...investment takes time and planning. I think. I'm also thinking of getting another earring. The stud is fun, but I might bridge up to something else, maybe a hoop.
David Spinks is actually a pretty decent bloke. Okay, no real surprise there, but I never knew it until a few days ago. Frobisher calling him 'Dad' is kind of weird though.
It's the month for surprises though, I guess. Stanton's been joining me on fag breaks. It's nice to have company when you're socially unaccepted, I have to say. Who knows, maybe even Lovegood will wind up joining us out there before long. Current Mood: calm

It's a pretty nice day for London, I'd say. But it's good to know that some things never change. MacDonald is still the stubbornest girl that ever lived, but whatever.
Made a pretty expensive investment a couple of weeks ago. We'll see if it pans out.
In case anyone's forgotten, I'm still an amazing Trainee. Anyone need to know more?
And J? Midsummer's not as bad as I thought it was. Maybe I've judged the comedies too hard.

|28 February 1981--late at night
I almost forgot what it was like to stay up all night reading for fun. Finished most of my textbooks weeks ago and all of the other books that supposedly I just had to read. Done and bored now. Still kicking arse in Dueling. Still working my own arse off. Not much has changed.
Well, no blackouts anymore. That's something I consider good news.( Private: J/KCollapse ) Current Mood: nervous

|17 August 1981
I hate funerals. I guess this one will be soon. Probably small, but who knows. Henry was a good bloke as far as I knew.
At least the blackouts are gone? Blacking out at a funeral probably wouldn't be the best. Current Mood: nauseated

Happy New Year, indeed. After seeing the number of diamonds flashing around last night, I'm starting to wonder if there's not enough said about the jewelry business. Did everyone and their brother get engaged over the hols?
I mean, congratulations to all, but damn. J almost looked like she might tip over from the size of the rock on her finger. (Nice work, Bones!)( PrivateCollapse )
Anyone besides Takiyah see me pass out on the floor last night? Too much excitement I guess!

I think I've been reading so much that I'm going to need glasses. At least if I have to get them, I'll still look better than Bulstrode. I would definitely define sexy in glasses, that's for sure.
On that note, I should probably return some of these books that I've borrowed. I know Takiyah and I both keep tripping over stacks of them left and right. I'm surprised she hasn't threatened to move out because of them yet! But I've finished most of them already, so it really is useless to keep them here hoarding precious space when they could be somewhere else and I could have a completely new set of borrowed texts to pour over! Good logic, right? I thought so.
Less than a month until Christmas. Current Mood: determined

Still the best Trainee Dueler. That's not going to change anytime soon.
I think I completely exhausted Madam Bones' supply of books. Either that or she's tired of me asking questions after reading them. But I'm still looking for more books. Heh. Who knew even with a live in girlfriend I've still been able to keep up and do better than everyone. Oh wait, I knew I would.
Fuck you, Dementors. Life is good. Current Mood: good
|Thursday, January 31st, 2008|
Only three hours of sleep and I still feel rested. Nice. Maybe I'm just in a good mood, which means it could be Lovegood's lucky day in Dueling. Then again? Maybe not. I might just decide to claim victory once again, instead of going easy on you.
I finished another stack of books from Madam Bones. I've only had them for about two weeks, but I tore through about all of them in a few days. Not bad, huh? It was fun. I mean, I never knew all the techniques and theories behind Defense, the Dark Arts, and even a bit of muggle stuff. I think she had a few more things for me, but soon I think I'm going to exhaust even Madam Bones' supply of information.
J? How's the summer tan coming along? Current Mood: happy

Things are fucking amazing. Better for me than you, I promise.
You know, for a bloke that wanted to jump his best mate so badly while she was married, how in the hell have I held off for these threeish months that she's been in the dramatic throes of a divorce. Hm. What patience I have. Especially considering the fact that I'm very happy with someone else and look at that, so is she. HA.
Nice prediction, arseholes.
Lovegood almost beat me in dueling. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN AGAIN, PREFECT. But good show all the same.

Yeah, all's fucking right in the universe.
I'm still a brilliant trainee, and you're not. Current Mood: happy
