I possibly have a placement!!!!

I had my usual meeting with One Eyed Willie and it looks like I may be teaching 7-11 English in a small rural town (mucho thanks to a classmate offering me her basement if I get it). I've never taught anything below Grade 10, but I don't care! I have to check in at the office later to double check that everything is on the "up and up"....

But I have a placement! *does a Steve Urkel dance*

hey dreamfilled. what's up?
The Passion of The Christ (http://www.ThePassionOfTheChrist.com) is in theaters soon - this week on Wednesday.. what do you think about this movie? I'm going to see it for sure - the trailers (http://www.thepassion.tv) were enough to convince me. I read somewhere that it's the widest opening ever for a subtitled movie; I have a feeling subtitles won't detract from the full effect of this movie though. After looking at the trailers which have no subtitles or english at all, it was reinforced for me that lack of spoken english in this film won't hurt one bit. To sum up my impression of The Passion: it's a work of art.
Good Website (http://www.passion-movie.com)
Another fascinating aspect to this movie is all the controversy that has been generated about it.
Some people, not really representative of Jewish people, but rather self appointed Jewish spokespeople, such as Abraham Foxman from the Anti-Defamation League, seem to have been attempting to denounce this film for months as being anti-Semitic. The news reported that they even stole the script last year! But here's what some Jews say (Jews who don't make it their job to tear apart other people): Protesting Gibson's Passion Lacks Moral Legitimacy (http://www.towardtradition.org/article_Mel_Gibson.htm) by Rabbi Daniel Lapin.

Nice to see some people speaking rationally.

So what do you think of all this?

*looks around* Why do I suddenly feel that I have been violated by a commercial?

Nothing like cutting it close. Any placement is better than no placement.

Here's hoping that the office gets its ass in gear today!
