I blame this behavior on Mr. P being gone. He has very little tolerance for above behaviors, particularly, staying up until all hours of the night reading Harry Potter. Actually, Mr. P has a very strong aversion to Harry Potter, period. This stems from his deep seeded resentment and anger at Harry for having the same name as him. I have tried to point out the lack of logic in these feelings and even kindly offered to loan Mr. P my vast collection of Harry Potter books so he could realize the priceless value and truths held in them. As I philosophy major I would think Mr. P would value the deep insights into good and evil portrayed in the books. However, all of my efforts have been fruitless and Mr. P continues to harbor a bad attitude toward Harry Potter. This is one instance where he probably would prefer to be away at OCS then at home. Jess and I are both re-reading the books in preparation of the 6th movie which comes out in a few weeks and we fully intend to go see at the midnight release showing never mind that it’s a Wednesday night.
On a different note. Here are the beautiful new shoes bought at the Nordstom Rack during our Portland Shopping trip. Only I got them in pink but I couldn't find a picture of them in pink.
