Quite curious.

Hello again,

Some updates on the Hogwarts side of things, it's been going great. The students are much better ever since they have gotten into the rhythm of school. I've returned the first assignments and have collected the second one for marking. I am thinking of planning a few out of school trips as well although that would prove to be quite a handful considering the Slytherin students. Detention doesn't seem to be working for them.

Enough about boring school stuff. I have just downloaded a game called Governor of Poker. You choose whether you want to play as a lady or a gentleman and the goal of the game is to win at poker. I suppose you take over towns by winning a lot of money and you get to travel to other towns. I haven't started playing it yet. I am still reading up on the rules of the game but it seems like muggles love playing poker.

There are buildings called Casinos where muggles gamble. They play many different kinds of gambling games and poker is one of them. To avoid leaking the existence of the magical society, I felt that it was better for me to play a virtual game instead of going into a Casino, running the risk of getting too excited and using the summoning charm.

Anyway, I was talking to a fellow professor about muggles and the Twilight craze and she had some really interesting words to say. The character might be appealing to muggles because of the very fact that the character is so human, filled with flaws, unlike many other hero type characters. I do agree with this point and I am so glad I did have a chat with her about this. I'm not saying that I like the book now, I am just saying that I do see why some muggles might like it.

I would probably be getting a mobile phone the next time I visit the muggle world (which would be quite soon). Makes it easier to contact Hermione when I'm there too. I'm pretty excited though. It seems that I'm starting to get the hang of this technology stuff and my thirst for knowledge is ever growing. Absolutely thrilled to head into the muggle world. Can't wait!

As always, leave me a comment and let me know what you think, or just say hi!

Lord Severus
