Hey people!

It's that time of year again. No, not Christmas, it's time to board the Hogwarts Express. Our letters have arrived, the Head Girl and Head Boy have been picked, and the countryside is beautiful. Forget those DADA assignments you put off for so long. Forget that date you set to go out for tea with your mum. And most of all forget that summer fling.

It's time to get back to what's really important. Shopping. No, I'm not talking about buying new textbooks and Potions ingredients, I'm talking about spending your parents' fortunes on the latest fall fashions. Go ahead and splurge on that three-hundred-Galleon fuchsia dragon scale clutch you've been drooling over for weeks in Diagon Alley. Or you could Apparate over to my new favorite place to shop till I drop, that ultra chic l'Alle Diagonale de Hibou. It's only across The Channel. And don't be afraid to get yourself a little something extra. After six years of schoolwork you deserve something special. How about a brand new wand from that Italian customized wand shop? Or a top of the line limited edition Firebolt Gold? I already had mine shipped from the states where the broom is coming out early.

So grab your BFF, the key to your daddy's Gringotts account, and slip on your new turquoise unicorn hair peep toe pumps by Marishka Maltin (you know the ex- Quidditch player) and get to work. I expect to see you all in Diagon Alley, or maybe even Paris. I promise to have a list of fall must-haves soon! Until September 1st.

Sightings

HP has been spending his whole summer with the W clan since his uncle had a heart attack. Could their house get anymore crowded? G and HP cuddling in a local pub. Are they back together already? Can't they make up their minds? H and the future Mrs. W shopping for the perfect wedding invites in the Flourish and Blotts stationery section. They look like they're getting along quite well considering their history. Have you seen the future Mrs. W's engagement ring? It's massive! I can't believe that her fiancé could afford it! R jogging around a nearby neighborhood for the billionth time. Is he looking for that blonde he recently hooked up with? Is H jealous? My favorite pranksters, F and G, running around Hogsmeade in their brand spanking new Hi- Flyer classic Beater-cut dress robes. Is there to be some competition for Zonkos this year? I hope so, I wouldn't mind seeing F and G around. D looking very tired on the corner of Diagon and Knockturn Alley. Is that a joint in his hand? Has D picked up a dirty habit, a dirty Muggle habit?

Well, you'll just have to stay in touch. Send me mail. I might clear up some rumors and maybe start some new ones.

You Know You Love Me,
