Look, y'all, it's an Indian Emma:

I really wish I knew Hindi (other than "I am a big duck"), so I could understand what they were saying. I'm really looking forward to seeing Miss Woodhouse get the Bollywood treatment. Too bad there's no U.S. release date (yet?).

"When life gives you wheelchair, make lemonade."

I don't have cable right now (I was only able to keep up with Glee by using the elliptical machine at my gym), so I'm not really up on what's going on in the world of television. But apparently, Oprah's giving away a TV show, and I sincerely hope it goes to this guy:

If you have the time, check out Zach's other YouTube videos - his "acting reel" is comedy gold - and vote for his show here.

In other news, I acquired a kitten yesterday. She's spent the majority of the day hiding under my bed, chewing on my comics, and chasing a laser pointer. She's pretty awesome, and should probably have a real name (other than "Kitten") within the next few days.

Also, I'm leaving for Montreal in nine days. Suggested attractions to visit are welcome and encouraged, s'il vous plait.

What are you doing? What, what, what are you doing?!

Hello, everyone. Yes, it's a blog post. Shocking, I know. Sorry to have abandoned all my wonderful book blogging friends, but this school year was crazy. Plus, I've been really lazy about keeping up with my reading and reviewing. Right now, I'm sloooooowly making my way through Android Karenina. The steampunk elements (robots! gears! electromagnetic skating ponds!) are awesome. The actual classic-book-part is a little boring. Am I a terrible English major/teacher, or what?

To tide you over until my next (real) post, here's a funny video one of the other (good) English teachers showed me today. We justified looking at YouTube during post planning because a) for some reason, it wasn't blocked, and b) it's semi-Shakespeare, so it counts as "educational." Or something. Enjoy!
