That didn't help much.

She raised her hand high, waving it about to get the girl Professor's attention, "Professor..person! Is this company a REAL apple, and if so, has anyone tried to EAT it?" That's what this company gets, for naming themselves after food. At least it wasn't named pie..or CHOCOLATE. "Ohhhh! And what is a compyoutator?"

Muggle words, pshaw.

Once he said the next student could come speak she decided to tale that opportunity to move to the floor... right next to Lawson. Yep, she was going to stay as close to him as she could.

Sliding off the couch she inched her way over to him not even realizing that she was able to move her left arm. That is until she was sitting right next to him and had put BOTH her hands in her lap... and the saw wasn't in her hand.

Looking around she seen it was laying just a couple of feet from her. Hmm, funny she didn't even realize she had let go of it. Must have been focused on sitting next to her new favorite student. Leaning forward she grabbed the saw then placed it on Lawson's lap. "I believe this belongs to you." Yep, he could have it back, she wanted nothing to do with it anymore.


Muggle gadgets don;t work at Hogwarts.

Raising her hand Marie asked, "How is it that YOUR ipod works at Hogwarts when it is a known fact that muggle gadgets do NOT work within the school." Mmhmm, explain that one.

"Well, Mister Hayes, they are determined by their functions and are named so because the iPod mini was considerably smaller than previous ones, then they did get smaller, the nano came afterwards, half the size of a mini," she said patiently. "The internet is a system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet Protocol Suite to serve billions of users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope that are linked by a broad array of electronic and optical networking technologies and it carries information on various topics," she said.

She then turned to Destiny. "Miss Shepard, the company is not a real Apple, it is just the name they have chosen, for reasons I do not know of," she said. "I suggest you do not try to eat it seeing as they have branches all over the world," she added. But it would be interesting to watch her try to eat it... "The computer is a machine that contains data," she said simply.

"Then perhaps there was a charm placed on it," she said simply. After all, her father had gotten it for her and who knows what he did to it. "And Miss Malfoy-Lupin, if you know the answer to a question, don't ask," she said. Alex was annoying her... on purpose... and she knew it.
