Last night my husband and I went to see the new James Bond movie "Quantum of Solace." In one scene, Bond is sheparded into a scuzzy hotel in Bolivia under the cover of a "teacher on sabbatical"
Say it isn't so! But it is... A teacher can only afford a scuzzy hotel on the off chance that she can even get to Bolivia. He then takes the woman (who is supposedly "escorting" him) to the 5 star hotel (nearby?) and calmly tells the clerk "We're teachers on sabbatical - and we've won the lottery" Ha ha, big laugh. Am I the only grumpy teacher in the movie theater thinking about paltry teacher salaries? I guess this is some insight into the fact that I have trouble having a good time. Sometimes being socially aware ruins a fun night at the movies.
I have finished knitting THE scarf and will post a picture of it very soon. I am doing the drudge work of weaving in ends and blocking. I need to start some more charity knitting. There are soldiers without scarves and socks and pets without blankets in their cages and babies without soft blankets, and cold children without hats.
I need to go see another escapist movie and actually escape this time!
