Bored, bored, bored [Feb. 24th, 2004|11:35 am]

There's nothing to do.

Rather ironic, don't you think, considering I own a joke shop?

But really, what is there to do that I haven't already done a million times before? I've wracked my brain for the last hour, trying to come up with a new prank, but it's all . . . blank.

Maybe I'll take a walk.

What the-- ?!?!? [Feb. 3rd, 2004|01:25 am]

According to last month's issue of Gringott's Trade Weekly, the product sold to the most children between ages eleven and thirteen was Flighty Fancies.

Flighty Fancies?!?!?  They're midgets! What do they need with lovey-dovey candies? They don't have that many hormones yet, do they?

When I was their age, I was still planning the newest and best ways to sneak dungbombs into Snape's potions stores; I didn't have time for such things as girls until much later. What are these kids doing with so many of those candies--not that I'm complaining that our products are selling so well. I'd just prefer the funnier items to sell better, that's all.

Word of the day: Irked [Jan. 22nd, 2004|09:27 pm]

Yes, I am severely irked at this whole situation. Six weeks! Six weeks, and not one bloody fire-call from the Prophet!

Oh well . . . Not much that can be done about it.

On another note, I saw that woman in the Alley again. It looked like she was having lunch, or maybe waiting for a business partner to have lunch with--there were papers spread out at the table around her.

The weird part is, she seemed to have noticed me as well . . .

Eh. Maybe I'm just delusional--Angelina tells me that all the time.

Curious. [Jan. 15th, 2004|08:07 pm]

I was standing in the queue at Gringott's this morning, bringing in last night's profits, when I noticed a somewhat familiar-looking woman a few people ahead of me in the queue to my right.

I think I've seen her in the Alley before, or I might have seen her at school, I'm not sure. She was tall, for a girl, almost as tall as Ron, but shorter than Charlie, and she had dark hair. Her head was turned, so I couldn't see her eyes, but something tells me they were a light color--it's that bit of famliarity creeping up again.

Anyway, I just thought I'd mark the occasion, just in case I see her again and wonder where I've seen her before (like I did this morning). Now, I can honestly say that I did see her before.

Shop's doing well, of course. Was there any doubt? I just wish that reporter would show up.

There was a nice young woman, had a funny name, started with a T . . . It's not important. Anyway, she kept asking a lot of questions, and even tried out a few of our free samples, but didn't buy anything.

I don't know why that particular customer sticks in my mind, but not even I will try and fathom how my head works sometimes.

Still no luck with Mum; she seems to be avoiding the issue now. Whenever George or I mentions the Order of the Phoenix, she abruptly changes the subject.

I'll let it pass. For now.

What's going on with the Prophet? [Jan. 2nd, 2004|03:22 pm]

This is really starting to bother me. Three weeks ago, someone from the Daily Prophet fire-called George and I, asking if they could do a story on the shop. We, of course, agreed right away, and the Prophet's representative said they'd contact us about an interview within the next few weeks.

It's been a few weeks, and still no fire-calls from the Prophet. I mean, I understand that there's a war going on and all, but the bloody paper hasn't even reported that accurately, much less dependably.

Is it so much to ask that people keep their appointments?
