man I'm just thrilled to be watching part 2 of the woody allen documentary. after last night's part one etc... excellent.
yeah I'm a big fan, I'll admit, in college I remember trying to rent all the woody allen movies I could. but I remember stopping after deconstructing harry, which I haven't seen, and actually I haven't seen any of them he's made since then, but I need to. I know you'll think I'm a big dork, but I didn't like all the cursing and then all the themes of cheating in relationships in all the latest films. blah. I"m sure I'd appreciate all the usual woodyisms in the films though, I'll watch 'em eventually. I'm really interested in the latest one in Paris.
got this week started off well this morning and will end this week tomorrow. We are watching the Wizard of Oz with one our classes today and tomorrow. It's sort of a sharing American culture, some worksheets involved. and we're coming off a Teamwork theme in class etc. I hadn't seen the film in a long time, and I was sort of strongly empathizing with the part of the tornado coming and the girl running into the house. Since then I've experienced a tornado coming through my neighborhood here a few years ago and It made remember the feeling of the rush to take cover, anyway, it's strange what can happen between seeing a movie for many years and what you see or notice or feel differently. love that.
was able to speak with a voice in class tonight. really into my class this semester, and it's funny how comfortable we all are at the end of class and then it's suddenly over and I never see 'em again. alas. we have one more rough draft due and then last paper in a few weeks. the last paper is due right before I leave for NYC, so I'll be madcap grading in 2 days, and maybe take a few on the plane with me, but I HAVE To time it so they are all ready to give right back one I return! ha oh I just remembered I'll have that whole Monday off after coming back so that will buy me some time to get ready for class that night.
ok cheers to all, I hope everyone is making plans to get together with somebody if not family. I'm thankful for so many things this year, and this year it's all the little things, the things people take for granted, just my job, family, health, friends...
