The First Day Back at Hogwarts

*sigh!* It feels so good to be home!!! Yes, I call this place home even though it's really just a boarding school. And sometimes it can just be a glorified boarding school at that! Some of my favorite classmates are no longer here, but no matter! I will still find a group of girls to hang with and possibly cause a little mischief with *giggle*

Homework Week 1
Well, I feel terrible to start school off with absent mindedness, but I don't think I'll get a good grade on my first assignment. We are to list the three characters that we picked for our kits, but I can only remember the first two. Isn't that terrible??

Dolores Umbridge - Dolores is absolutely hateful!!! But, she loved her pretty things. I've also always been facinated with her pink purse that only shows up in two scenes. In the picture below and also when she's being introduced to the students in the Great Hall. One day I WILL create a pattern for this purse and knit it!

Bellatrix LeStrange - Another hateful character, and relative of mine, but honestly the best at what she does - crazy! Yes, she does crazy very well, and I love her because she shows such loyalty to Voldemort till her dying breath.

Andromeda Black - I chose her for no reason whatsoever, except that she's part of the Black family tree, which are distant relatives of mine.

I did find out that my swap buddy is the great Celestina Pettigrew from Griffindor House. I'm looking forward to getting to know her more and putting together a great boarding school care package together for her.

To those of you who do not know me, I'm called Cat. My full name is Catriona LeStrange. I'm a 6th year student, though this is only the second time that I'm participating in the swap.

I am related to the infamous Bellatrix Lestrange by way of marriage. My uncle is Rodolphus Lestrange, the husband of Bellatrix. You don't hear speak of her, but my mother - Relio Lestrange - was sister to both Rodolphus and Rabastan Lestrange. She is a true Slytherin at heart, but she distanced herself from her brothers when they were caught and given life sentences in Azkaban.

So, mostly I am a pretty nice person and easy to get along with, but every once and a while a little snarkiness may surface. Just make sure you don't get your panties in bunch! Take it in stride - that's what I always say :)

So, please do tell why you chose these three individuals ... I can't "stalk" you if I don't have info!
