I spent the weekend at Marilyn's again, helping her do research at the National Archives. It's really cool there - there are records of everything! There's a huge genealogy section, and a philately section, too! Marilyn is working on a paper about Canadian Mennonites and their role as conscientious objectors in the second World War. She found a load of letters written from Mennonites asking about their rights and the responses from the government departments. The government was surprisingly sensitive to their belief systems.
On Saturday I saw Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire for the first time (there will be more). I was fair apoplectic beforehand, and Melanie was my calm and understanding date. (It had to be with a Confed. Centre girl, you know?) I really enjoyed this movie. There were no house elves, no SPEW, and Cedric Diggory was prefectly cast (i.e. too pretty for words). It was sad and scary and funny and I'd like to take this opportunity to announce that I will be marrying Daniel Radcliffe and I don't care how society shuns us, we're in love and we don't care what people think.
Finally: Beware President's Choice brand Fat-Free Chocolate Gelato. It's dark and thick like fudge and pretty darn good, but if you eat more than 1/2 a cup, it sits at the bottom of your stomach like a brick. Could it be the three different types of "gum" listed in the ingredients? Perhaps.
