Ewwww

Women of a certain age should not wear pink, frilly underwear. Or at least, for the sake of my eyes I should never have to look it. Oh my eyes! Oh my head! Actually, scrap that, I think I could cope with seeing pretty much any other teacher in pink underwear, with the possible exception of Professor Snape, but Professor Umbridge... no.

I'm trying to like and respect her, I really am, because she's a teacher, but it is difficult when she... is like she is. I mean, all teachers have favourites, it's kind of inevitable because they are human beings as well as authority figures, and some of them discriminate based on this, but not even Professor Snape none of the others are so blatant about it, so unfair. And then there's all this Inquisition malarky, which is not only a bad way of putting it, but is also kind of mean. I think the teachers are really good. And all of this is aside from her own classes, which are boring. I mean, sometimes it's difficult to make a subject interesting, like History, but DADA? I don't know. Maybe I'm being unduly harsh.

But really, what I mean to say is: I don't want to see her in her underwear! I don't know if she saw who did it - I suppose not because said person is still alive - but I did and I think it was rotten trick to pull. I'm also quite surprised. I never really had Bletchley down as a prankster. One of the third years was physically sick and I don't blame them!

I'm really quite glad I didn't see that.

You should be! I wish I hadn't! I am scarred. I want to scourgify my brain.

Oy. That is horrific.

Not as horrific as your hair. No, wait, scrap that. Almost as horrific. You still looked rather pretty with neon pink hair after all. I'm fortunate to have escaped. I knew there was an advantage to being a self-serving sort not remotely concerned with running about chasing bad guys and improving the state of the world.

Even thinking about it makes me wish I could pretend people only exist clothed.

When you recover, I am sure you will feel very differently about that.
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 11:54 am (UTC)
If I recover.

I knew there was a reason I dropped DADA.

I think a few people would have done if they'd known what would happen. But it was good last year! I liked Professor Moody, even if he wasn't real.
newt_fawcett

He not only wasn't real, he also wasn't who you thought he was. How could you like someone who was only pretending to be someone you liked in the first place? That's like saying you like the actor who plays your favourite character in a play, even if you don't like him, only because he has that role in the first place.

I just mean he was a good teacher. I liked DADA classes with him, he knew stuff and the classes were interesting. I know he wasn't actually who he was supposed to be, but at least nobody regretted taking NEWT-level DADA last year.
We were all lured in by Professor Lupin I think. He was brilliant.

Really, really should have thought of that before giving Bletchley that trick wand. Well, on the plus side it's a very effective contraceptive method for all the horny young lads and lasses out there. I think I've just been put off for life, mate.

You and me both.

I don't want to be put off for life! I want to have sex! Lots of - ok, too much information Barney, cross that out.

Thank you for sharing that, Barney. Should I set up a roster?
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 11:53 am (UTC)
That won't be necessary, thanks. Oh I hope nobody can see how red I am now.

You know, they usually say that being a bit more SUBTLE reaps a few more benefits.
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 12:04 pm (UTC)
Benefits? I'm not trying to suggest anybody should oblige me, I'm just saying, you know, I don't think a celibate life is for me. Oh what have I got myself into?
newt_fawcett
Sep. 18th, 2007 12:09 pm (UTC)
Open mouth, insert foot, Barney. Ah, bless you. You suuuuuure you don't want me to set up that roster?
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 12:17 pm (UTC)
One girl would be quite enou No, no I'm fine. Embarassed, but fine.
newt_fawcett
Sep. 18th, 2007 12:22 pm (UTC)
Not to worry, Poppet. I'm sure that you wouldn't need a roster to help you out anyway.
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 12:30 pm (UTC)
I'm sure I can keep track of the hundreds of girls who are falling over themselves to not sleep with me.

Awww. I'm sure you're being too hard on yourself.
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 01:20 pm (UTC)
Well, I only know of one girl who's interested, a friend of my cousin, and she's 12 - no, 13 now I think - so maybe not.
newt_stebbins
Sep. 18th, 2007 10:16 am (UTC)
I agree 100% with everything you've said, mate. And I'll have to add, as a non-Slytherin who, for some strange, unexplainable reason, fell on her good books, that being a favourite of such a biased "teacher" is not that pleasant either.

I think I'm scarred for life. I'd kill for a Memory Charm right now.
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 11:32 am (UTC)
A memory charm! Yes! I'm guessing we won't be able to get Obliviators out here. Anyone else any good at Memory Charms? Maybe I could just get a bludger to the head instead.

I could kill Bletchley.

You're turning a very... um... interesting colour...
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:17 pm (UTC)
No I'm not. It's a very normal colour for a beetroot.
newt_capper
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:20 pm (UTC)
Perhaps for a tomato or fire engine.

So how come you're so red then?
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:22 pm (UTC)
Because Fawcett is suggesting setting up a roster.
newt_capper
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:28 pm (UTC)
...but why would that make you blush then?

She's the Head Girl, so isn't setting up rosters sort of her job?
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:36 pm (UTC)
Umm... not this kind of roster. She - er - wants to set up a roster of girls for me to - er - be intimate with.
newt_capper
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:41 pm (UTC)
Oh...
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:46 pm (UTC)
Yeah, exactly.
newt_capper
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:50 pm (UTC)
Well I can see why you'd be blushing then...
newt_barney
Sep. 18th, 2007 04:08 pm (UTC)
Yeah. Okay now I feel awkward. Oh dear. Feeling awkward with Saorla, this is not a good sign. Please no-one mention this roster thing ever again.
