Yeah! They look like fat little Santa Clauses - they're awesome; especialy when you charm them!

Andy,

I have no idea why you would think I know anything about the ways of muggles. However, for your sake, I shall try to think of something.

...

Muggles haaave... oh! Telelaphones! I know about those. They are these things muggles use to talk to each other when they're far away. Like talking by floo but... completely different.

Sorry I'm no help at all. Good luck with the learning.

Also, why always RAB?

Telaephonics. No. Telepaphones. No. Oh fantastic.

Because, O Great Questioner of All Things Regulus, I just always have. I'm fond of it now.

Lily Evanscall_a_lily on August 23rd, 2007 01:14 am (UTC)
Andy-

My best advice is to generally avoid electronic things, or at least practice a REALLY GOOD poker face. For example: there is a lovely thing called a toaster, and you stick bread in it and it generally comes out nice and toasted, or burnt (sometimes these things do not work v. well). Do not yell into a telephone (a device muggles use to talk to each other when they are in different houses, only you can't see each other, only hear).

I mean "the ways of the muggles" is pretty all-encompassing. Specific questions may of course be directed to me. I'll be in Devonshire with the Potters and your beloved havoc-causing cousin.

Good luck!

Lily
Andromeda Blackchained_maid on August 23rd, 2007 01:16 am (UTC)
Lily,

Don't let Sirius drink eggnog. He gets notoriously drunk on the stuff. He seems to love it for some reason. Always has. He causes worse havoc after drinking it than usual.

Anything I need to know specific to Christmas day? I'm spending it with him and his family....

Andy
Lily Evanscall_a_lily on August 23rd, 2007 02:53 pm (UTC)
Andy--

Too late, he's already drunkenly egged half the houses in Britain. I suspect I shall have to sober him up every once in a while, but other than that I'm quite afraid it's hopeless.

If Ted has younger siblings, they may believe in Father Christmas still, so don't spoil that for them. You'll open presents and enjoy each other's company, although you may gather 'round the television to watch Channel 4's The Snowman. You may also sit around the radio (rather like the wireless?) and listen to Christmas carols. Hum along a bit if everyone else seems to and pretend you're tone deaf even though we both know you have a lovely voice.

Other than that I don't think there are any strange muggle customs. Just don't drink too much eggnog and accidentally set anything on fire.

Hope I was helpful!

~Lily

Andy,

Uhhh, to be honest, I'm probably as bad as you in the "all things muggle". Though, I do remember, they don't wear robes... Uhhh... You probably knew that. OH, everything takes longer with them as well. So you may want to exercise your patience span a little beforehand...

Ummm, I'm now trying to remember muggle studies (dull class). They use cars all the time. Their cars are slow and small and break down a lot.

Ummm... They cook without wands... Errrrrr.... Christ.... I can't remember
anything.

THEIR PHOTOS DON'T MOVE!

But they have telavisions which have moving, talking pictures of people/drawings in them.

GOOD LUCK!

Merlins beard. I would hit you....but well done for keeping it from the Prewetts this long. Perhaps you should send an owl to Molly just in case.

Andy

PS No more eggnog...you know how you get.

Right.

Well what do you think he's likely to try and teach me?
