September 2008: Inbrief

Dialog of the Month (From Dr. Horrible):

Penny: Well, I’ve gotten turned down from plenty of jobs, even fired a few times.

Billy: I can’t imagine anybody firing you.

Penny: Neither could I. Now I can visualize it really well.

 

Highlights:

1.       School started, writing time began, and I’m actually writing! Yay!

2.       I’m finally feeling healthy enough to socialize with and email friends. Excellent.

 

Fiction Books Finished:

*** ½ Size Fourteen is Not Fat Either, by Meg Cabot- The second Heather Wells chick-lit mystery is even more fun to read than the first, although grislier.

 

Non-Fiction Books Finished:

None- I’m still trying to read way too many non-fiction books at once.

 

Movies:

None- too much good TV available right now

 

TV Enjoyed:

**** Supernatural, current season – mighty interesting season arc so far.

**** The Big Bang Theory, current season- hilarious season premiere. I love Sheldon.

 

*** ½ Skins (BBC America)- is sort of like an R-rated British version of Degrassi that co-stars the young actor from About a Boy.  He's all nicely grown up now though.  It's a blend of far-fetched plot lines, realistic—yet super dysfunctional-- plot lines, and natural teen dialog (compared to the glossy American teen shows).  I'm totally sucked in by it.

*** ½ Mad Men, current season

*** Fringe, new show

*** True Blood (HBO), new show

*** X-Files, season 1 on DVD- dubbed in French with English subtitles

 

Sub Jobs:

1 day- second grade class

1 day- kindergarten class

1 day- as the art teacher in a different school than I usually sub at. It was fun to teach 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders again.
