Starting off on the wrong scalp.

Dear Izzabee,.

It's nice enough at the school but I wish you were here. It's kinda lonely. I have been sorted into my house. I'm a Schmuffle Tuff or Hufflepuff or something like that. To be sorted you have to stand in front of the whole school and wear a funny hat. Honest. Not too traumatic, huh? Oh and it talks, INSIDE YOUR HEAD. Yup funny looking, psycic hat. in front of the whole school. If you win the house cup I think it's going to be pink unitard with orange flashdance tee shirt.

I'm getting into a routine and not nearly getting lost as much now that I can hear the staircases. They move. It takes ages to convince them to move back, too. I enjoy listening to Hogwarts, it's so old and tehre is so much going on. Oh another weird thing - I think the house elves are forming a union. I'm in the kitchens a lot, I don't like the dining hall it's loud. And I am wondering if the tenticle tart is going to attack me. Seriously. I know a boy in our dorm lost his toad yesterday but the wouldn't serve it for supper, would they? Still I don't want to examine the "toad in the hole" too closely either.

I got a care package from my mum. She sent me a portable dvd player and some dvd's. All british tv shows. I'm not sure how that's supposed to make me less homesick but they are good shows. Oh and a few movies. Luckily the canopy bed has some thick curtains I can put my headphones in and enjoy. I wonder if the Beachcombers is out on dvd yet?

Miss You,
Brims

PS Have I mentioned the size of my HAIR?!?

Lost

Apparently Hogwarts is in England. Funny thing about England it's not in Canada. It's cold and wet. And people talk funny. Also there seems to be more fried foods. And foods I can't identify and foods that just dound nasty. Do I want to know what's in Blood pudding? I didn't think so.

But I'm here ready to start a new term at school. The first experience I have is shopping in Diagonally or some such. It's super crowded. And kinda expensive. Luckily mom married money. Well, the second time around. And the fifth come to think of it... mind you, it's the newest (and 7th if your keeping track) that's the reason I'm here. Not at home, where I should be. But here. Where things are cold and wet (it bares repeating as I have naturally curly hair).

Here's hoping #8 lives somewhere tropical.

Brims.
