In the interest of correcting some misinformation, leap day actually happens because it actually takes slightly longer than 365 days for the earth to fully orbit the sun. Without the addition of an extra day every four years, the calendar would eventually slip out of sync with the seasons. In fact, the current Gregorian calendar was designed to keep the date of Easter correct with respect to the vernal equinox.

Interestingly enough, although leap years usually occur in any year that is divisible by four, years that are evenly divisible by 100 but not by 400 are not leap years. Just to keep everything even.

Now, isn't that much more interesting?

Well, Gryffindor, looks like I'm your new Head of House. Guess I'm just in time for the next Quidditch match, huh. SWI didn't have divisions like this school does, so this is kind of new to me, but I'll catch up.

I only wish my string had as exciting of an end as it should have, considering the theories that have blossomed. And that is all that I have to say about that.

Also, I have some extra bits and bobs from my celebratory Valentine's Day accessories. If anybody would like me to whip up a little something for them, free of charge, I would be happy to. It's a wonderful distraction from homework.

Anyone know why all the teachers seem to think that weekends just mean give us more work? Geez, like we're not stuck doing enough the rest of the week. O.W.Ls are gonna kill me.

Anyway I figured I'd go out flying later today. Got some new tricks I think I've worked out and I know there's gotta be some of you all who're just dying to see me in action, so I thought I'd let y'know. 2pm this afternoon. By the lake. Be there or be totally lame.

Rainbow Dash signing off!
