Catching Up...

SAW: Without giving too much away, let me just say that I thoroughly enjoyed the quirky sweetness of > Juno. The characters were too perfectly drawn to be real, but the fairytale-like self awareness of the film was endearing. With a stellar cast, the film is a true pleasure to watch both for performance and appearance... I loved the repeated theme of runners, the dark confines of the suburban homes, and the pristine innoculation of yuppiedom.

So worth a view, even if I weren't teaching pregnant teens and debating whether or not I'm too old to wear band t-shirts. ;)

HEARD: Can't get enough of Stars. Go buy some!

DID: I've got to say, being back in the classroom is both a blessing and a curse... but I love the individual spirit of some of my students. It makes up for the crap that I put up with on a day to day basis (can you move the sheet on the overhead? What page? I didn't know it was due! Can I have one more day? What are we doing? ARRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH)

ATE: You've got to eat the new Hershey's Nuggets Special Dark Truffles. Egad. Bliss in a tiny mouthful...
