This is Madness!

So, after a long period of silence, I got a call this morning, and I'm subbing for the 5th graders this afternoon. Just from lunch on, so it shouldn't be too bad. I have no idea what I'll be teaching, but I may find that my life has suddenly become my own personal episode of "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?"

I don't know why they haven't called me in so long to be a substitute. Apparently, the threatening phone calls and plethora of emails reading "Please don't ask me to sub again!" were taken as signs of my unwillingness to teach. People are so touchy!

Watched the BBC version of "Voyage of the Dawn Treader" last night. It was coupled with a shortened "Prince Caspian" at the beginning, which I watched a week or so ago, and finally got around to watching "Dawn Treader." It wasn't awful, though I trust that the Disney Company will do a much more watchable version when they get to it. I'm gonna have to go back and look it up, because I don't remember the baptismal imagery in turning Eustace back into a boy that the Beeb's version had.

I didn't even know the BBC did a version of those books. I thought the LW&W movie was pretty decent. My quibbles were more with the cutesiness of the original source material than with the translation to film.
