Why Yes, It Is Early

If I'm posting at 6:30 in the a.m., it can only mean one thing--substituting! Yes, today I will be one of the P.E. teachers for the elementary school. Last week, I worked one day in the gym, and it was strange to hear kids call me "Coach." I'm not the most athletic person in the world, but I kind of like being known (temporarily) as Coach.

My sister's fiancee was here this last weekend, and I hung out with them a little bit. We went to see 300, despite the fact that I argued for Grindhouse very persuasively. I'm glad I saw 300 though; it is very impressive visually, even if the plot leaves a lot to be desired. I was a little disappointed in the simplicity of the Spartans/freedom vs. Persians/slavery dichotomy (I was under the impression the Spartans weren't exactly, you know, free), and I kept imagining how it was the kind of film (race and violence mixed) that Hitler would have loved back in the day. But, hey, just because Hitler would have liked it, doesn't mean I can't, right?

And may I just say, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is one excellent book...
