many happy returns

Since I hadn't been there for weeks, I thought that the first day of classes seemed like an appropriate time to go back to the office. When I had tired of making revisions, I sent my manuscript to co-authors for final comments. It is a nice built-in two-week break from looking at it.

Having finished before five o'clock, I decided to walk downtown to see Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I'm completely enchanted by the whole series, and really liked the movie a lot. The end was a little extra schmaltzy, but I won't hold it against the whole film. I'm really excited for the third installment, which will be directed by Alfonso Cuaron, He has made some really beautiful movies like Y Tu Mama Tambien and Great Expectations, so the new movie will probably be excellent even without having read the book.

The best part of the movie is how I was only the second person in the theatre until a family came and sat directly in front of me. Later, someone was snoring loudly through the ending. I wanted to go wake them up, but didn't.

After the movie, I grabbed some falafel (which I kept off my shirt) and went to Dante's. On the way home, I noticed that there are New Beetle Convertibles at the Volkswagen dealership in the U-District.

Tomorrow, I think I'm going to check out a class that starts at 9 am. I have it written on my wrist so that I'll remember in the morning. This reminds me of time and how I should mention that I've been reading Einstein's Dreams. It's pretty excellent.
