1) I'm going to call it right here: the best moment of the current TV season will be Kristin Chenoweth singing "Hopelessly Devoted to You" on tonight's episode of Pushing Daisies. That is, unless Hiro and Ando profess their powerful, secret love for one another this season (and we all know that it's not a matter of "if," but "when").
2) I raised the "found laptop dilemma" with another group of students today. Their response was much more reasonable, with only a minority stating they would keep the computer, while the rest would try to find the owner. One student made a suggestion that guaranteed her an A in the class: she said I should have inserted pornographic pictures into the church PowerPoint presentations so that they would appear during services. She then went on to describe how elderly parisioners would run screaming from the church. And this student's name, interestingly enough, is Tyler Durden.
3) Fall break started for me today, which means I'll have more time this week to work up some more extensive entries into the Halloween Countdown. Expect more film entries over the next few days.
