Title: The Little Girl Lost Affair Part 2
Summary: Illya and Napoleon get a suprise
Okay, so a trip to Sacramento with 20 eighth graders was actually fun. The Governer's Mansion was interesting. It's set up for the time the last governer lived there; so around 1967. The capital was cool too. We had really good docents for both places and I'm sure that had a lot to do with the interest of the tours. The kids were great; very attentive and had some really good questions. And my partner was worried that she wasn't a great social studies teacher. We had lunch in Capital Park, talked about the CA Viet Nam memorial for a few minutes and let the kids run off some steam. The Railroad Museum wasn't as big a hit but, I think everyone was tired by that point. Mind you, we walked everywhere.
So today I'm resting. I ache everywhere, so hot soak in the tub and rest for me. At least til this afternoon when I have to go to the Learning Center and take the math and science parts of the ACT so I can teach the ACT classes which will be starting soon.
I've managed to watch all of the Man from UNCLE dvds and now I'm rewatching my favorites as well as the eps that the yahoo lists are going to be talking about. I don't tend to say much on the lists though. I think it may be that I'm seeing these eps for the first time as an adult with knowledge that I wouldn't have had in the 60's as a kid. So I'm noticing little things like nobody bleeds...a guy has a knife sticking out of his back and there's no blood. I don't guess it ever occured to me that there would be blood in Star Trek. If you're killed with a phaser, you disappear. But, MFU takes place on Earth in the 1960s. If you shoot someone, they're supposed to bleed. Okay, and I know this is because of where they shot the show, but lots of identical places around the world.
People have said that the third season is the worst. I'm not sure I agree. Some of the stories were really good. I liked "Concrete Overcoat." And the one where Illya is a pool boy was good too, right up till the end. The bomb was totally stupid. I thought it was stupid in the James Bond movie too. The gorilla show I won't even bother to mention. I've seen it once and haven't decided if I want to see it again to look for redeeming qualities. The science part of my brain just can't cope with a dancing gorilla.
Wow, this may be the most I've written on this journal to date. I'm so glad Clinton won in CA. I just don't think Obama has the experience, but I do agree that they would make awesome running mates. Okay, that's my political opinion. And that's about as political as I get. Well, except for maybe the war in Iraq (but that's for another post). For now I think I'll sign off and watch MFU dvds for awhile. Or maybe I'll watch CSI Miami on A&E. I'm kind of getting into Crossing Jordan too. It's an interesting take on a coroner's office. Not as heavy science but really about relationships between people.
Signing off for real.
The person in charge of lectors at church has scheduled her to read for the noon mass on Sunday...My flute lesson is at one. Change the lesson again.
We just got in from band rehearsal and the music for this concert is deadly dull.
Okay, done whining. :)
I'm writing a fic right now. I won't post anything til I actually get some more written. Right now I have about 2 pages hand written. My brain seems to work better if I hand write things and then type into the computer. That way I can rewrite and make corrections as I go along. Even in college, I just couldn't get the hang of just writing on the computer.
On the upside, I was asked to be the wardrobe goddess for ACLO this summer. If they haven't changed it that's five hundred a show. Although I do want to audition for Grease. I'd like to play the principal. Gonna be a fun summer.
I think I'll watch a couple of MFU episodes and then go to bed. I have to get up at the crack of dawn tomorrow. I'm not a morning person...
Still not working...boo hoo. But, I will be working for Huntington Learning Center in a couple of weeks. And the postings are coming up for next school year so my fingers and toes are crossed and my resume is ready. Credential, here I come. I'll have everything done by summer. Not that I think it makes a difference, but at least I know my credential didn't come from a credential mill. The school I went to was tough. If you don't belong in the classroom, you don't make it through the program. I think that's the reason the program is so highly rated. Not to mention the fact that you really have to want to teach to jump through all the hoops California has set up!
I'm staying up way to late at night reading MFU fic but there's so much out there I just want to read it all. Then there are the dvds to watch over and over. With the writers strike on there is much to watch on tv anyway. I have most of the NCIS eps on my computer since I have band practice on Tuesday nights and can't watch them any other way. I've discovered Colditz thanks to Wiccagirl and Guba. Now if I could just find some more episodes...OMG my family is right, I am a nerd...
I've joined a number of communities and friended a number of people in the few months I've had this journal. I'm really enjoying getting to know everyone. I hope to meet some of you some day. The people I've friended are all terrific writers...yay, my favorite thing in the world to do is read. And no I don't just read fan fic. I actually read books too. I'm reading James Patterson's "Double Cross" right now. I'm hooked on this author and his Alex Cross novels. Now there's a thought, maybe I'll review some of the books I've read. Well, we'll see.
I'm also typing two of the MFU novels for the Pulp Fiction Site. It's going to take a little while since I seem to be able to type only about a chapter and a half at a time before getting tired. Besides who wants to spell check more than that at one time.
Well, I guess that's all I have to say for now. I'm going to sit back and enjoy my quiet mood.
