not a bad distribution for a 2-day period, which, if we’re counting 11:30pm-11:30pm over 48 hours, also includes finessing the automatic bubble-blower & showering soap at everybody attending elisa‘s friday night birthday party, dianna‘s fantastic strawberry shortcake extravaganza, a little mission-impossible behavior around the auditorium doors, & zipping around town & campus in spoonboy514‘s snazzy new car! i cleaned the mulch out from under my fingernails just for him, but i still know it was there, & count it as evidence anyway, for considering these days siezed!

I Demand A Recount!
I’m pretty sure that “silly movie” counts as appreciating the finer possibilities of intertextuality and narrative construction. The way it deconstructs and re-imagines fairy tales while at the same time commenting on traditional expectations about marriage more than makes up for the fact that it’s entertaining.
It’s definitely a “student point” event.
Also, there was that discussion about Foucault and what a cheese-eating surrender monkey he was.
