Snakes On A Plane

You MUST go see this movie. Do not wait for it to go to DVD; you have to watch it in a crowded movie theater with friends. It will make all the difference. I was actually entertained by this B-movie. I laughed, I cried, I screamed, I got grossed was tons o' fun.

Favorite quote: "I am tired of these muthaf&^%$* snakes on this muthaf&^%$* plane!"

Oh, go check out the website. Samuel L. Jackson will call you.

Do you know who Jeffrey Rush is? The famous actor from such movies as Quills and Pirates of the Caribbean #1? Well, apparently I have his niece in one of my classes. I didn't know this until today when she walked up to me and said, "I have a present for you." She handed me two promo pictures from the first Pirates movie. One had Jeffrey Rush on it; the other had Johnny Depp. She went on to tell me that Rush is her uncle (they have the same last name and I never made the connection), and last week she called him and told him that her English teacher is in love with Johnny Depp, who coincidentally is currently shooting the third Pirates movie with Rush. According to my student, Rush sent her these pictures to give to me. I told her that I don't believe her. She convinced me that it is true, but she doesn't really like to tell her peers because she doesn't want to be bothered. I can understand that.

Anyway, as we were talking, I began to look closer and noticed that both pictures were autographed; one by Rush and one by the number one man on my "celebrity list" (if you don't know what a celebrity list is, email me). I was smiling cheek to cheek, but the bell rang so we had to get to work. At the end of class, I had my students complete an activity where they wrote me a note with questions or comments about what we learned during class. This particular student wrote that her uncle told Depp that her English teacher is in love with him and he responded with, "I am flattered."
sn't that just the craziest thing you've ever heard? So not only do I have the niece of a famous actor, but his and JOHNNY DEPP'S autograph, and he's flattered that I am totally in love with him.

I just hope this student isn't totally tricking me. For now I'll believe her. ;-)
