I love rituals and traditions.
It’s already fall here in the northwest. The weather is cool, the trees are starting to change colors and unfortunately, the sun is rising later and setting earlier.
Yesterday I went and saw Easy A. I LOVED it. Easy A was especially awesome — clever, intelligent, referenced John Hughes movies, and had a musical number, what’s not to love? You gotta love a teen movie that can make jokes about Sylvia Plath and Kinsey AND offer spot-on commentary about our society AND still appeal to the typical teen movie crowd.
I really want to see this movie. Hopefully it’ll make it to E’burg. I want to see it pretty much because I love Kristen Bell. She’s another witty, slightly snarky, but very clever actress.
As for this movie… I think it’s too soon to make a movie about the facebook phenomenon. Facebook came out six years ago, but it’s only been super popular for maybe the last three years. Give it a decade or so.
During the movie another crazy storm passed through E’burg. I heard from my new classmate that it actually hailed! By the time that I got out of the movie the rain was gone, but I did get to see the pretty rainbow.
The rest of the day was spent slaving over my syllabus and class planning for the quarter. I’m still trying to figure out all the details.
