This week has sucked. But I have Pushing Daisies
waiting for me on the DVR, and according to what verygoodbread
has said, it should cheer me right up.
Wiki compiled a list of shows and how they're affected by the strike, it's here
if anyone cares. I was totally relieved when most of the shows said that they have 12 episodes completed, thinking that there are 12 episodes complete in addition to the 7 or 8 that have already aired. WRONG. The "12 episodes" includes the 7 or 8 already aired, so there's only 5 episodes or so left. So if the strike lasts into the new year (which by the way things are going now, it might), I'm going to be totally screwed.
And then there's school. More specifically, my Film&Culture class. On Tuesday, we were about to watch Flatliners
(which I was so excited about, because Kiefer is in it), and talking amongst ourselves when the teacher started yelling at us about how he's sick and tired of us talking while he's trying to talk, and then just stormed out of the class, and left for 20 minutes or so. He eventually came back, and instead of letting us watch Flatliners
, we had to sit there for an hour and read the chapter in our textbook on sound. No one did; we all ended up going to sleep, and he really didn't seem to care.
Then yesterday, he came in and put on a video he got from the school library on pork (SERIOUSLY. It was high school news program about how pork is good for you and how to prepare it), and afterwards (it was about 7 minutes long), he told us to analyze it. No joke. Only a few people actually did contribute to the discussion, and then we asked him why we had to watch the movie. He told us that we should've liked the movie because it was in English, didn't have subtitles and had teenagers, which we could relate to. Then we had this huge, long pointless discussion about how we don't respect him and his way of punishing us is really stupid and he should just get over it. He said a pretty mean comment to one girl, and she ended up leaving right in the middle of the discussion and didn't come back for the rest of class. The class ended with us still arguing with him, and we really thought that all we'd do is watch stupid movies, argue, and sleep. Seriously, WASTE OF TIME.
Today, I found out from one of the girls in my class (who's really tight with the teacher) that he's going to let us watch Flatliners
tomorrow, and he's gotten over the whole thing. I'm still a bit unsure, because of the way he's acted the past few days, but I really want to get back to watching GOOD movies. (Plus, KIEFER! I haven't seen him in FOREVER.)
Last new episode of The Office
tonight, boo. I'm a HUGE supporter of the writer's strike, but I'm really going to miss it (and eventually every other show I watch) if the strike continues. So, MAKE A DEAL WITH THE WRITERS AND GET ON WITH YOUR LIVES. (I'm still looking at you, NBC. You know The Office
is on your network, right?). But I put John Krasinski on my desktop, so CHEERS. But still, boo to NBC.
