Well, I wanted things to happen.

Whoever's got Sirius up in arms, good job. I'm thoroughly amused. You're beautiful people, you know that? I just hope he never catches you, or else I fear the possible consequences.

Things are looking up, by the by. Mum found some of the music Timmy had apparently stolen this summer, which dad lovingly owled to me. I wondered where my Bowie had gone. I'm moving on and working on learning some new songs. I'd like to avoid turning into a broken record like we were graced with earlier, no offence to Peter of course.

Looks like my young friend Anthony had the closest thing you can get to a date around here, too. ;D Cheers to you, mate! And a happy birthday to the lovely lady!

Speaking of lovely ladies, I haven't been seeing An Li much lately. Where've you gotten to, love?

Bored. Boredboredboredboredbored.

Who knew there'd be a day I actually wanted something to go wrong tutoring just so something would actually happen around here? Fifth years are the ones with that careers advice bit to go through, aren't they? I don't envy you lot in the slightest. At least you have something to do and talk about, though.

I played my guitar a little earlier, but everything's so dead around here that I actually got bored with that. Can you believe it? The silence makes me lazy. I swear it does.

Right. Something needs to happen before we all die of boredom. Or is somebody around here actually having fun?

Found the journal again! That's a start. [Mar. 28th, 2004|10:10 pm]

Right. I feel slighty brainless. Swear I'm not usually this stupid and forgetful and whatnot.

As it is, I lost the journal for a good two weeks. I won't even pretend I "misplaced" the stupid thing. I down right lost it and had to hunt it up again. Apparently it somehow got locked up with everything I try to hide from my doormmates. Idiot that I am, I forgot to check in there until now.

So what have these two weeks been like?

Well, I've been slightly ill and I've had homework practically coming out of my ears. I got in trouble for falling asleep in Astronomy, so I've got extra work in there, which is just my luck. But honestly! How am I supposed to stay awake in class when it's first thing after breakfast and we're simulating the night sky for stargazing? I haven't been sleeping well! It's hard to when your sinuses drain every time you roll over! By the time I get to class, I'm exhausted, and food always makes me sleepy, and I could come up with a million more excuses if I really wanted to, but I think I'll leave those for a time when they might actually do some good.

Considering my housemates, I doubt my noise has been missed all too greatly in the common room. If you really need me, I'm either in my dorm or in the library, the only two places I can get some peace and quiet. As for now, I think I'll get started on some of this work.

Two feet of parchment on the significance of the Pleiades? Oi.

Tutoring session went through without a single hitch! The stripe is fading out and nothing new was added onto it! I didn't fail that Transfig paper like I was worried about doing! And the Sid is just all around happy at this point.

Of course, I can't sleep. How does that figure? Oh well. Guess I'll just study for Astronomy or something. I hate having that class first thing in the morning. I love Astronomy, but it involves more thought than I can manage at 9 a.m.

Anyway, enough rambling. I should do something useful. Right. Like maybe putting a silencing charm on my dormmates' curtains.

Wow. So the weekend went by way too fast for my liking. Mondays are good, though. All I have is one section of History of Magic, so if I can stay awake through that, I'm free. Well, there's the study period, too, but that's just enforced time to finish homework.

I also have a session with the Hufflepuff tomorrow during lunch. The stripe's starting to fade out, thank Merlin. With any luck we'll avoid another big mess. I miss the days when her accidents consisted of melting cauldrons. This is the last time I let my dad talk me into helping his friends' children pass a class.

What was Anthony saying about wanting to see me with the colored hair and all that?

Pomfrey fixed up the scorch flesh problem (and gave me my eyebrows back), but she says the hair's nothing life threatening and therefore I have to live with it. It'll fade out in about a week or so. Everything will be fine and I can go on with my normal life. Just make sure my young Hufflepuff friend is more careful with her potions mixing so we can avoid this sort of mess again.


This better as hell fade out in a week or so. I go back and forth between thinking it's kind of funny and realizing that I'm probably going to be the butt of almost every joke until something better comes along.

Why me?

I guess we're still good with the fact that the pink wasn't this bad, but isn't it just my luck?

Bah. I need a smoke. If you need me, you'll find me whether I like it or not.

So! I may not be a complete failure after all. An Li says she'll tutor me for Transfig, thank Merlin. Maybe I'll manage a bit better than just passing now.

And mum sent an owl this morning in response to my response to Mark and said something along the lines of "don't worry, dear, you're just being male." For one, what's that supposed to mean? For two, what did I say in my letter that led to that comment? And for three, why is mum the one replying to letters to Mark? o.O

Eh...oh well... Anyone up for some music? A bored Sid is not a happy Sid, and I think I'll go completely mad if I stare at my Arithmancy homework any longer.

I've come to the conclusion that, smart or not, I'm awfully good at being very stupid. >.<

Stupid Dense Idiot Brainless Dim Slow Moron

Give me some more words along those same lines.

Hnn... Think I'll go continue kicking myself and sulking over a bit more homework. Yes...my Transfiguration essay is calling. Dad'll have my arse if I get another P.

Singing in the Common Room...again... [Feb. 27th, 2004|01:34 pm]

[Music |My ears are ringing...]

Erm...right... So...I wrote something...and put it together...and actually...sorta...like it... Eh...yeah... So...guess I'll...share...? (Loooove how my confidence level drops a good ten notches when it's original. *sigh*)

Baby wore a world of emotions at war
Never had a thing to say
Wretched self-destruction was the name of her game
She was giving it all away
Guess she never knew there was somebody out there
Guess she never had her eye on me
But, baby, if I gave you something to cling to
Would you let me into your dreams

I guess I had my say
I guess I tried my hand at that
But you ran away
So, baby, I tip my hat
To you

Yes you

Glitter had her crazy and she never could hear me
Guess I never really spoke my mind
Something in her head was saying she could go farther
Guess I never shoulda took my time
Guess she never knew there was somebody waiting
Guess she never had a thought on me
But, baby, when I sing you a love song
Let the music play through your dreams

I guess I had my say
I guess I tried my hand at that
But you ran away
So, baby, I tip my hat
To you

Yes you

Liner on her eyes
Was always running
But she never let me
Wipe her tears
So here’s my story
How bout that
Oh can you hear me
I tip my hat
To you

Yes you

And now that I've dropped my ego through the common room floor...I think I'll go hide in my room.

Hey man, oh leave me alone you know
Hey man, oh Henry, get off the phone, I gotta
Hey man, I gotta straighten my face
This mellow thighed chick just put my spine out of place
Hey man, my schooldays insane
Hey man, my work's down the drain
Hey man, well she's a total blam-blam
She said she had to squeeze it but she... then she...

Like I said! Lyrics of the day! Although...those lyrics might give the wrong impression... The very wrong impression...

I just had a good day, is all. The Sid is not whining today. The Sid is not being emotional and stupid today. The Sid is laughing hysterically at almost everything today. Of course, that could have something to do with the Exploding Potion of Doom. I skipped lunch to help this little third year Hufflepuff girl with some Potions practice (when they pay with cookies and butterbeer, I can't refuse) and I told her about TEN TIMES that it was supposed to be mugwart, not toadswart. So what did she add? Toadswart.

Pretty sure you all would've loved that show - Sid sitting on a desk with a bottle of butterbeer about ready to tip back and suddenly he's covered in violet and fuschia slime.

Absolutely gorgeous, me.

After an event like that, though, pretty much everything seems real funny the rest of the day. Said Hufflepuff about died of embarassment, but I think she's alright now. I got most of the slime off and washed out. My hair's still a little pink in the wrong light, but I can handle that.
