I started arguing with the Patil bint (Parvati, as opposed to Padma) last night,
and found that I almost like it. She's witty, and once her bloody idiotic Gryffindor reflxes stop screaming 'Slytherin' at her and making her yell at me, she's not half-bad at banter. It's actually rather fun, talking to her. Merlin help me. I did not just write that. and she just won't give up. Quite the good tongue on her- very sharp and amusing. Quite the wit as well. If she wasn't a gryffindor . In any case, she's had some very intelligent things to say about a problem I've been working on.
