Join Us In Not Changing the World and Then Be Prepared for a Major HP Spoiler at the End of This Post

Months ago, I posted a link to a cartoon that I said explained why I hadn't gone to Smith College (apart from the obvious reason). The cartoon came from an article in the Stanford Alumni Magazine (I'm not an alum of Stanford either, so now I guess you know what we're doing with your mail all day). I forwarded a link to the article to a friend on the faculty at UAA. She read the article and then a book by the subject of the article, Carol Dweck. She says it has transformed her life and she wants to get to together to discuss it. Clearly she'll never be one of us, the underachieving fraternity (Phi Phi Omega). If we thought our lives were capable of being transformed we wouldn't need to read books about it, we'd be doing something besides sitting in our bedroom blogging.
For that matter, I'm kind of bored with myself and why things turned out the way they did. If I was going to discuss a book, I'd really want it to be HP and the Deathly Hallows. Is Harry another in the literary line that includes Aslan and Frodo?
