So it appears that the Ministry of Magic does not have a stable connection to the "internet" and I have not been able to update on this journal in some time. I am working on a computer and connection for home, but the landlord doesn't think our building would support it as it's magically dampened and blocked against apparition and a lot of charm work. It's similar to Hogwarts. Perhaps someone there could talk to my landlord and figure out how they have their computers connected. We did get our connection back late yesterday and as my evening plans were cancelled, I stayed at work and, I believe the muggles use the word "surfed". There are some really interesting thiings to be found. I found some recipes worth trying, learned that even the most innocent googling can retrieve sites that were of a questionable nature, and discovered a musical group called "The Beatles". Why have these men not infiltrated into the Wizarding World? I need to get that credit card so I can order a CD player and these thin plastic circles that have the music on them.

I have been reading my "friend's list" and I see that Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger are dating. Well, Hermione, I can't say I'm impressed with your choice, but I do think your efforts towards muggle/wizard relationships are admirable. I imagine my brother is disappointed, as Ron has long fancied you; surely you know that.

In regards to my family, I must admit that I am a bit hesitant about how to proceed further. I feel that every attempt that I make to make amends with my family is met with hatred and malice. I'm not sure how they can expect me to continue to try when they keep sending me terrible comments and doing things like flinging mashed potatos at me.

The Quidditch scores are in, must go check.

music: The Beatles - Hello, Goodbye

I've been extremely busy with all this nonsense about attacks in shops on Diagon Alley. Rita Skeeter is having a field day with the disruption between Mrs. Malfoy and my brothers. She firmly believes it was an orchestrated Death Eater attack and refuses to believe that it was a disgruntled customer (who happens to be married to a Death Eater) taking out her aggressions on the proprietors. Magical Law Enforcement considered obliviating her and I had to deal with all of the paperwork for this decision. I must admit that I found the entire incident rather amusing. And Mrs. Malfoy as a canary with pig snouts? I hope someone took a picture of that. Fred and George, I admire your potion making skills. Even Professor Snape should agree that you have talent, even if it is a talent for causing trouble. By the way, do you have anything that will do the opposite? I had lunch with Penelope, as planned, and the damn witch played footsy (at least I hope that was her foot) through the entire meal. Get it through your blonde head, woman. I'm not interested!

Lucius Malfoy has been quite kind in informing the general public, via this internet thing, about the whereabouts of Death Eater meetings. It's a shame that I hadn't read the posts in time to dispatch the aurors to his estate. And there has to be a way to discover where He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is posting from.

One question-how can that flea bitten dust mop of Filch's type? She (I think it's female) posts more than I do and she doesn't have fingers.

Also, Ginny, I appreciate your message, even if you weren't sincere. Tell mother I said hello.

Oh, I have an owl from...a friend.... must go.

music: the minister dictating to his quick quotes quill

Although I liked the "mint chocolate chip" color scheme, my dear friend enchantedonyx has asked me to change it. I feel that this scheme is quite Slytherin-like, with all the green, but I suppose that I am past the time when school colors and loyalties signify much.

The ministry owled this morning to notify us that Mr. Lucius Malfoy has created one of these "journals", so I added him to my friend's list to keep an eye on him. I told the Minister that even Malfoy wouldn't be foolish enough to post Death Eater activity on this public space, but he says that we can't be too careful. Malfoy will probably just brag about his hair and money.

I ran into Penelope Clearwater last night. I can't seem to ever get away from her fast enough to prevent her from inviting herself over or tricking me into a lunch date. I wish she'd get over it. She's part of a life that I don't want anymore.

I should get to work now, but I just discovered this thing on the internet called Amazon. It doesn't look like they have wizarding books, but they have anything else I could want. Too bad I don't have a Muggle credit card. I should look into acquiring one. I'll send an owl to Bill to see if Gringotts makes them. To Ron's friend Hermione hermione_diary, please view the following website www.Amazon.com . I think you'll find it quite interesting.

Starting journal

music: memos flying around

I have been forced by my employer, Mr. Rufus Scrimgeour, to create this livejournal. My colors look nice, but I had choose something called Mint Chocolate Chip to put them into effect. I'm quite positive that I could have come up with something better with some quick charm work. I did get a N.E.W.T. in Charms, after all. I need to figure out how to use magic on this ghastly, synthetic machine I have to use to post here. It has so far repelled all attempts I've made to make it work differently or respond the way I wanted. I'll check my old spellbooks when I get home this evening. My fingers hurt, besides. How do Muggles do all this thing they call typing? I much prefer a quill.
