MLH was in the cafeteria when I was getting some water. He barely even said hello and only that after I said hi to him. Sure, it's okay to camp out in my office and make me listen to his woes of the weekend, but it's not okay to be civil in the caf? GRRRrrrrr. I hope his kids get their socialization skills from their mother. Of course, for all I know, he stumbled across my lj yesterday and recognized himself.
To be honest, I'm surprised Ron made prefect too. I didn't expect Harry would though for the same reason, they attract trouble and they're notorious rule breakers. Hermione has a strong desire to follow and enforce rules, so I expect Dumbledore can overlook her troublesome tendencies. I expected someone like Dean Thomas to be made a prefect. I suppose Ron was selected for dramatic tension, or maybe the same reason that Lupin suggested he was selected, to keep Harry out of trouble, but that's pretty unlikely to work.
I enjoyed seeing the picture of the Order before. I feel justified in my portrayal of Frank knowing that Neville does in fact take after his mother when it comes to features. It also contributes to my feeling that we are, all of us, walking inexorably and unknowing to our own doom. *sigh* And my poor Molly. Tormented hour after hour with images of her children lying dead. I notice Ginny wasn't in there. Maybe she's only worried about the boys dying? Or it could be it just didn't go on long enough. It's hard being the matriarch. I hope I bear up under life's stresses half as well as my darling Miss Molly.
I was watching "Monk and the Playboy" last night and it featured the ever-delicious Gary Cole in a role that was a cross between Uncle Bill from Family Affair and Lucas Buck from American Gothic (with the supernatural element replaced by technology), and I decided he's my very ideal. I shall pattern Frank after him. If I can remember long enough. Of course by the time Molly recovers, I'll have almost certainly forgotten. But we'll always have last night!
