Who: Su Li & Lucy Elkins When: Saturday, late-morning/early afternoon Where: Hogsmeade What: Ravenclaw solidarity in Christmas shopping Rating: TBD Open/Closed: Openish - I'm sure they could run into someone if anybody else wants in!
Although she had originally intended to get the bulk of her Christmas shopping done the previous weekend, Su had wound up spending much longer at Lisa's birthday gathering than she had intended. In other words, she'd had bit more to drink than she knew she should, in the name of "celebrating", and would probably have failed miserably at any proceeding shopping endeavors.
This week, though, would be different. No one was having any special occasions with free and basically unlimited drinks, and Su would stay on task. Besides, she even had company this time, as Lucy Elkins had agreed to join her. Though she hadn't ever been especially close to the younger girl, Lucy did seem to be smart and pleasant, if a bit quiet for Su's tastes. With little concern for what Lucy may be planning for their trip, Su had decided they'd make the rounds of any of the shops in Hogsmeade that sold promising gift items. She found that she always had to be careful of what to buy her parents and sister - as Muggles, many of the more magical gifts she might like to get them may just prove confusing, useless, or even dangerous. Still, shopping in the Muggle world never seemed quite the same anymore.
Bundled up against the cold and pulling on a pair of wool gloves, Su waited for her shopping partner with surprising patience. Although, the tapping of her foot might suggest otherwise.
