As she tries her luck with the traffic police
Out of boredom more than spite
She never finds no trouble, she tries too hard
She's obvious despite herself

Lyrics taken from "Rattlesnakes" by Lloyd Cole

Yes, I did play with the Wierd Sisters during the Yule Ball. I would have likely attended dateless if it had not been for that. Fortunately I have rock god-dom to fall back on. Even the wimpiest, weediest fellow can look fit behind an – er, cello. Anyhow, I’m thinking of charming a sign that says “Oh Godric yes that’s really him” in response to all the oh-so-subtle whispers in the hall behind me. Right under that I’ll be wearing a shirt that says, “Does not play well with others” on the back. Or alternatively, “No darling, don’t pet it!” Heh.

Yes, I am a multi-instrumentalist. I create music as well. There's not really a lot else you can do in Hull. In a city that boring and crime-ridden, you have to retreat within. Hull, how do I hate thee? Let me count the ways.

If you take Muggle Studies, you'd know what a telephone is. You might also know what a public phone is. Those are kept in red boxes, like the one you use to get into the Ministry of Magic from the street. In Hull, however, they have an independent telephone system. So every telephone box they have there is cream. Cream. Yes, only in Hull. But cream. Why the fuck cream? They could have just made them some normal colour like black or white but instead they had to make them cream. No wonder everyone thinks I'm a bloody homo.

Yes, I do have a younger sister. Her name is Betony and she’s in Ravenclaw, like me. She’s fond of tucking mint sprigs behind her ear. I also have another sister named Acacia but that won’t last much longer (The sister, not the name. She’s stuck with that for life). As soon as I’m of age I will legally disown her. She’s a third year Slytherin who wants to become a Muggle rapper. You know, those people who can’t sing so they shout into a microphone and pretend like it’s art? On the plus side though, she does cuss a lot and is fond of kicking Croyle in the shins and then running off shouting, “You can’t catch meeeeee!” so I may keep her around a bit longer.

Yes, I do have a journal. Somewhat goes against my nature but at least I’ll have somewhere to write down odd lyrics and doodle from now on. Don’t count on me revealing much of myself though. I might read about you. I find you mildly interesting. For now. It will pass when I get over this writer’s block.
