Random CatchUps

I made a conquest. On the second day a new girl called Joanna came in, her mum told me that Joanna said I was her favourite teacher - ever. She's been here two weeks, and she still loves me.

Kal and I are not the only ones with untoward plans for Joab's car. However, Joab actually LENT his car to Keith. Keith turned up at church and dangled the keys in front of me and said, "I've got Joab's car. Do you want me to teach you how to do burnouts?"

Kal's maternal instincts have finally kicked in. She was playing Sims, and she had a Sims baby with black hair and blue eyes. We are now looking for a black haired blue eyed man so that Kal can have said baby.

Kal, Reb and I started to watch the movie Stardust. About 5 minutes in, Kal said, "I know how this is going to end." And she left. Which was silly, because she missed the cross-dressing pirate. But three-quarters of the way through the movie, Reb suddenly says, "Oh! I get it! His mum was THE princess!" (I already knew the plot - I had read the book. The movie was better, which is a rare occurance).

My new team leader has decided to feed me up. I like this idea.

That's about it. My reading is more or less back to normal, which is very, very sad.

I liked stardust, one of the better romance genre movies I don't mind seeing again.

When the hero left back to his village, I was like - dude, what are you doing?

Which makes you wonder, why do the fairytales we know have murder, nudity and deceit, but they do not have cross-dressing pirates?

It is a good question, but Little Red Riding Hood was originally r#ped then eaten.

And the Cinderella-eske girl of Catskin had to run away from her father because he wanted to marry her.

Actually, that isn't true. There are cross-dressing pirates in fairytales. I mean, Achilles was hidden as a girl so that he wouldn't go to Troy.

He though wasn't confused. He managed to have a son whilst there. The war only lasted ten years, and yet, in the way of fairy tales / myths, the sons soon joins his father at Troy.

The funniest thing in the world is telling Elaine Lee about fairy tales. Reb and I both advised her on what to do if she was ever kidnapped by fairies.

Fairies, incidentally, frequentally cross-dress. But then, fairies are not pirates.
