I referenced The Magician's Nephew in a Blackboard argument about Edmund over the weekend and tonight referenced The Last Battle, the Bible (John 20:29b), TNG ("Devil's Due") and The Passion of the Christ ["Theologically, the point is not that Jesus suffered more than any human being ever has on a physical level. It is that his suffering was profound and voluntary and the culmination of a life and a teaching that Gibson essentially omits." -Andrew Sullivan] all in the same post :)
"I did not say to myself 'Let us represent Jesus as He really is in our world by a Lion in Narnia'; I said 'Let us suppose that there were a land like Narnia and that the Son of God, as he became a Man in our world, became a Lion there, and then imagine what would happen'. "
-letter from C. S. Lewis to some Maryland fifth graders in 1954 (via a Blackboard poster)
I also wrote fanfic (porn) during some of the boring parts of class. My femslash05 fic is turning all dark and non-shippy. Meep.
Set in England but filmed in France, as director Roman Polanski was wanted on sex-related charges in the United States and could have been extradited from England.
-IMDb trivia for Tess
Reading NYTimes, how did i forget about "Product message (optional)." That was possibly the best commercial of the night, but no, Diet Pepsi guy getting checked out by Cindy Crawford and Carson Kressley is what i remember.
P.S. I really like this story.
