Harry Potter Rocks

We had a viewing of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets last night. It was most excellent. I really like that movie. Even better is the fact that I rented it, so I now have the DVD til Wed and can watch all the extras that we didn't watch at the viewing. I ended up making Chocolate Chip Mint cookies for the event and I will say that they were the worst work I ever did. Everyone still liked them but I wasn't very satisfied with them. They came out really flat, were very unsightly to look at, and weren't as soft as I like my cookies. Oh well, I'll just have to figure out how to avoid the flatness. I think if maybe I put more flour in and didn't let the cookies airiate as much, they would turn out better. I also should put more chocolate chips in and use real butter instead of margarine. Oh well, maybe next time.

I had a most excellent conversation with Mary last night, errr, this morning. The content was a little unusal, but it was a real coversation and it seems it's been awhile since we've sat down and had one of those. Granted we were both sitting in front of computer screens typing, but you know what I mean. She's apparently made one of her goals this quarter to spend more time with her friends, so I'm hoping I'll be able to snag a bit of that time she's devoting, so that it won't be purely IM conversations. Not to put a hint or anything in my blog because I would never do that.

I have spent the majority of my waking hours today reading "The Republic" by Plato. I find it absolutely entralling, which is really convenient because it's the required reading for my philosophy class. I also was able to borrow Mary's Kant book, so that I can hopefully read more into the ideas that Professor Lynch briefly introduced to us from Kant. Maybe I have a possibility for a philosophy minor here. Nah, I doubt it. Too much writing.

Did I mention that it's official? I looked at my transcript today (ok ok, unofficial transcript, but that means it official honest) and my major is listed as Agricultural Business. They also managed to transfer the 8 units that I had acqured from Souther Oregon University. It raised my GPA like .15. Yay! I'm going to be seeing much more of this GPA raising if I have anything to say about too. Well I have a Business Law test followed by a "pop-quiz" in philosophy. Pop-quiz is in quotes there because he says with a degree of hinting and assuredness that he might feel inclined to give us one. Meaning expect one. I'm really glad I got this professor. See ya.
