I don't know if you've noticed, but I haven't been around much lately. Perfectly logical explanation, though: I'm in the hospital wing with a malfunctioning hand. It's sort of strange, I can't really move it or do anything with it - but at least it doesn't hurt, I guess! Someone made me the lovely gift of an old cup - sent it to me by owl post, and the handwriting really looked like my mum's - but it made my hand do this when I picked it up. Just goes to show you shouldn't trust arriving packages when it's not your birthday, I suppose. I don't know if it was meant to be a prank or what, but it's ridiculous and stupid.

Pomfrey says I'm lucky I didn't pick it up with both hands. I didn't even pick it up with my wand hand (because I held a piece of toast in that one) so I'm able to write and I'll probably be able to get out of the hospital wing soon, too, even if Pomfrey apparently doesn't know what to do about the hand. But hey, s'long as I can hold a wand, she's not really able to keep me here, now is she? Professor McGonagall personally came by the other day with the longest list of homework you'd ever seen. It was implicit that if I don't get it done in a hurry, I'll be kicked out of school. No, it wasn't, but it was implicit that I should get it done quickly "or else!". And you know how scary Professor McGonagall is when she lets her nostrils flare. So now I'm sitting here, working on that Charms essay about Aguamenti. I'm running out of ink, though, and ... well, I'd just like some company, I suppose. Pomfrey says that she "can't stop me from having friends over" - I think she's getting tired of me asking all the time - so I would say that visiting restrictions have been lifted.

I know I sound pathetic. It's just so dreadfully boring being stuck here with no one but a second year boy who bursts into a chorus of "Ew, cooties!" every time I so much as turn in his direction. So anyone, if you have some free time not likely what with the amounts of work they pile upon us please come by and chat for a minute? Oh, just don't let the hand alarm you, though. It's looking a little worse for wear, but as I said, at least it's utterly painless.
