So many exciting things lately! Where do I even begin?

First let me extend the warmest of welcomes to all of our new staff members! It's an honour to have you all on board, and I can't wait to get to know everyone. In fact, would any of you be interested in coming to my office for tea before the Easter holidays? It would be lovely to have you.

To all of you students, and not just the ones in my house, I have a question! As you know, back in the beginning of the year when I became Head of Hufflepuff, I mentioned taking the house on a field trip as celebration! Well, one thing or another has delayed it but I'm finally putting the plans into serious... well, planning. And I have decided to make it a school-wide field trip!

But of course, I am the Home Economics Professor, so I will be incorporating teaching into it, so you all get to experience how wonderful my class is! And then you may sign up for it... But I digress.

I need a few ideas! What are some muggle places you would be interested in visiting, that you think would be relevant to Home Economics? I would love to have your suggestions. I was definitely considering a Muggle tea house, so you can see how they make tea! As well as perhaps a few electronic stores, to allow you to spend muggle money for budgeting lessons- you will of course be able to keep anything you buy.

But please, do give me ideas, I need them. I would also very much appreciate volunteers for chaperoning, just to keep an extra eye on the students, if anyone is interested.

And finally, Homework! Recent events have inspired me to give everyone something a little different, and while it's not particularly relevant to Home Economics, I would still like you to all write an essay on who you admire most. I think it ties in nicely with parents day as well as us acquiring new staff! I would like for it to be around ten inches, and it is due after the holidays, so you have plenty of time!

Oh look at me rambling on, I do apologize. Nevertheless, that is all! Happy early Easter, everyone!

A very belated apology if anybody was bothered by my mother and father when they visited. I'm aware that they can be somewhat... unconventional.

[By Rarity's standards, they can be a source of shame, although they're dearly loved nonetheless. Both parents are far less dignified than she; if someone were being rude, they might call them hillbillies. At least the both of them are familiar with magic.]

Nonetheless, I'll not complain overmuch, since it's important to appreciate one's family! [Especially once they're gone.] It's difficult to be negative when the weather is becoming so lovely, not to mention the new potential for spring fashion.

Well, now, boys and girls, it would seem you have yourselves a new Professor here.

I am Doctor Facilier, and I will be teaching you what you might call... Muggle magic. Now, don't you scoff at that. Voodoo, Tarot card reading... They're just as much magic as any wand-waving you all do, and even more so than peering into a crystal ball or tea leaves.

Voodoo is my specialty, now, but I also practice Hoodoo and read Tarot cards, and I'm not too shabby with Shamanism, if I do say so myself. And we'll be covering all that and more in class.

'Course, my class isn't for everyone. It takes a great deal of skill to master these arts, not to mention an open mind.

Now, who's up for the challenge?

[No one's probably noticed, but Galen has been extremely scarce ever since parent's day. He's been skipping out on class and avoiding everyone, and for very good reason. On parent's day, Vader showed up and kicked his ass majorly for the unforgivable curse situation. He's been nursing his wounds so no one would be suspicious but even still he's pretty badly beaten up. But he's finally come out of hiding.]

Did no one get the memo that parents day was supposed to be just that- a day. We don't need everyone's parents suddenly getting jobs here, you should all just go home.

Good morning, all. I do believe I've just experienced karmic retribution.
Consider this a thinly veiled tribute and public service announcement: my darling mother is, in fact, somewhere in the vicinity of this castle.

I woke up to several My Little Unicorn dolls and three wizened statues of Albus Dumbledore hobnobbing on my bedside table - as well as two bottles of Old Ogden's Firewhisky which I have surrendered to the appropriate authorities.

Mother, come out, come out, wherever you are. I haven't quite thanked you properly for the gifts and veritable flood of letters I experience every weekend. May we shower each other with familial gestures of kindness all day and may I revel in your maternal charms this fine mothering Sunday.

Everyone, meet my mother, whom I love unconditionally.

Someone, anyone, please kill me now.

I haven't gotten very far on the song from Valentine's Day, but somehow I ended up with this:

I'm the girl in the corner of the room
The one you never notice
Getting lost among the stars in the sky
Like a picture out of focus

I'm the sun in your eyes
Yet you don't see me
I wear no disguise
But you don't see me
I'm a total surprise
And you don't see me

I'm so agonized
'Cause you don't see me
You don't see me

I've been looking into patronuses lately while studying for OWLs.

...Or is that patroni? Maybe patronae?

Well, whatever, in any case I've found that they generally take the form of something most significant to you. That's usually an animal of some type, because you know, animals and magical symbolism are fairly close to each other.

What sort of animal do you think yours would take the shape of? I've been thinking it over and I'm a little convinced that mine would be a magpie. If I wanted to try and make one, that is.

I think I should try it.

It's Leap Day, that special time that only comes around once every four years! It occurs to me that not many people are familiar with the kinds of things that make Leap Day so unique, but lucky for you all I'm here to set you straight on these little-known but 100% scientifically accurate facts!

1. If you're conceived on Leap Day, you're born with a prehensile tail. Parents usually decide to cut it off at birth, but if you manage to live to see 25 Leap Days, it grows back with a vengeance.

2. On Leap Day, everyone is exempt from one of the laws of physics, but which one varies from person to person. You just have to find out yours through trial and error!

3. In Venezuela, the color orange completely vanishes and nobody living there remembers it having ever existed. It comes back at midnight on March 1st.

4. If you wish for something on Leap Day, it will be granted! But the wish has to relate to office supplies in some way.

5. If you die on Leap Day, you come back to life at the next Leap Day! Unfortunately, the resurrection is usually pretty short-lived, since few people are keen on digging up four-year-old graves.

There! Isn't learning fun?

This may be asking much, but would anyone be interested in forming an Art Club with me? Miss Cierra said it was a good way to share my artwork with others. I don't see why. My art is silly, but I guess it couldn't hurt to try.

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!

Whoever decided it would be a good idea to tie strings around every book in the library, I didn't find it very amusing. It made it incredibly difficult to manoeuvre with all those strings in the way!

And besides, that must have taken ages to accomplish. Wouldn't that time have been better spent reading the books than tying strings around them?

Amber, is this string your way of getting my attention?

Oi, listen up you lot! I'm your new librarian, and the name's Donna Noble. Well, I guess I should say your new temporary librarian. The old one is taking a vacation and nobody's sure when she'll be back, and I needed a job so I'm filling in.

I want to start by saying that I'm not as much of a hardass as your last one (sorry dear, I know you're probably gonna be reading this when you ever come back. No offense.), but that does not mean I won't hesitate to punish you if you damage a book.

So that means I don't want any stains, rips, dog ears or nothing. If I see anything like that, I'll have your head. If only because I know that when the old bat (again, sorry love,) comes back, she'll have my head if I slacked off.

What I'm trying to say is, you respect me and my new domain and we'll get along splendid, yea? I can and will ban anyone from the library who mouths of, got it? And just because I'm only a librarian don't mean I can't take away points either, keep that in mind. And I can give'em too, so I expect all of you to be sucking up already. I really like sugar quills, by the way.

It seems like lately I've been needing to explain some of the things where I'm from more and more. So I decided I should explain three of the most prominent things in Shetland's Wizarding community.

But I think I should say first that its community isn't actually that big...not a lot of wizards live in Shetland, so a lot of their marketing has crossed over with that of Muggles.
Obnoxious drawings and stuff be here. )

Ummm...that's all I have to say.
