Corpse Bride
Easily one of the best romantic movies ever, Tim Burton's Corpse Bride is a wonderful, delightful movie. Lots of bad puns and terrific stop motion animation, as well. The songs aren't quite as memorable as Nightmare Before Christmas, but the score is lovely--good harpsichord.

Highly recommended by the Wolf and kashi.

Fun With Plagiarism
Well, I got to deal with my first plagiarism case today. How anyone can be so foolish is beyond me. Especially when we require the students to submit their papers to, which scans for ... wait for it ... plagiarism! Sigh. The 0 grade will be logged, the incident report for our Honour Council will be filed next week, and the letter to the parents is going out as well. Let us hope this is the only one I need to deal with for a while, 'cause it ain't amusing.

I wouldn't normally recommend that people run out and get a copy of Esquire, but in this case, I'm willing to make an exception. The October 2005 issue has an article about married Catholic priests and their families, and our pastor, Fr. Allan, is one of those featured. Terrific picture, great little caption of the typically sophisticated way Father speaks. There's a wee intro to it
here, but I recommend you pick up a copy for yourself. You can ignore the rest of the mag.

Almost no grading to do this weekend! Woo hoo!

Time for some slacking!

The Monk
You scored 26% Cardinal, 61% Monk, 38% Lady, and 32% Knight!

You live a peaceful, quiet life. Very little danger comes you way and
you live a long time. You are wise and modest, but also stagnant. You
have little comfort, little food and have taken a vow of silence. But
who needs chatter when just sitting in the cloister of your abbey with
The Good Book makes you perfectly content.

Few and Far Between
Alas, my goal of posting more often has been thwarted by my much greater desire to see that my students do well in school. I'll pop in from time to time, but for now, Jelly-Pinched Theatre is not much of a priority.

For an update, I've made it through mid-quarter, and most of my students are doing pretty well. I've finally had to give a couple detentions, and will institute those later this week. I'm trying to come up with properly painful bit of work to give them for the 45 minutes I'll have them, but so far the best I can do is to make them struggle through writing sonnets on topics like silence, respect, and obedience. Not sure how well that'll work, though. We shall see--I'm still learning after all.

I'm currently teaching Gothic America, focusing on Irving, Poe, and Hawthorne, and it's massively fun. Nice having some knowledge about the horror genre that I can impart to my students. And it's certainly more interesting to them than the Transcendentalists--blech!

Yesterday was my birthday, and was happily spent reading rough drafts of essays. Well, not exactly happily, but it could have been worse, I suppose. At least kashi and our friend Joyce were around to keep me company. Otherwise, nothing doing. Just teaching and loving it. 'Tis really not much else to say.
