Ready for the Weekend

I cannot wait till this time tomorrow. I expect Friday to go by rather quickly, they tend to do that. I'm not sure why...you would think that with all the anticipation for the weekend and lethargy following a five day work week that a Friday would slowly ooze by until you were stark raving mad from waiting for the clock to finally announce that it is time to go home. However, my Fridays seem to rush by in a wave of adrenaline and euphoria. I guess it comes from knowing that the week has passed successfully and you've got two fun filled (or rest filled) weekend days coming to you like a blessed reward for having worked so hard all week long. In that way, there's something rather magical about Fridays.

Nevertheless, it is Thursday night so I'm not quite there yet...but almost is close enough for my little mind. Especially after staying an extra 4 hours at school this evening in order to participate in parent teacher conferences. I only had one parent scheduled again, but I managed to get a lot done. I graded all my tests and got the next week's lessons planned (I like to stay 2 weeks ahead). Following that, I continued reading The Lovely Bones and am really enjoying the book.  I only hope the film equals the experience.

Speaking of films, tomorrow Bond is planning to come over to show me a film called Screamers which I had heard of before but never saw.  I vaguely remember seeing the trailer at a young age and thinking about how the little screaming things under the sand reminded me of the creatures from Tremors...but I'm sure the resemblance is purely aesthetic.  I'm excited though, because friends rarely wish to show me films I've never seen.  Well, I take that back....friends rarely want to show me films I WANT to see.  I know that sounds a little arrogant and hypocritical...I'm constantly foisting my favorite films on my friends while rarely letting them show me things they like.  Its not that I don't trust my friends, but I've always enjoyed discovering things on my own.  I can't explain it better than that...but I do try to listen to my friends and watch what they like from time to time.  Usually I enjoy what they show me...but sometimes I don't.  Also, its more fun for me to show a friend what I've seen and they haven't...because for me its like seeing it again for the first time since I get to live vicariously through their reactions.  Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing Screamers (and taking advantage of Pizza Hut's $10 any pizza any type any topping deal online) and I hope I have a good opinion of it.  I'll tell you folks all about it once its been watched.  Like always...the trailer is below:
