Sleepy Hollow Questions Thursday and Friday

Unread postby DeppInTheHeartOfTexas » Wed Oct 19, 2005 5:53 pm

Just a heads up for tomorrow and Friday...If you haven't watched Sleepy Hollow (the movie) in a while and need a refresher, it will figure into our discussion questions the next two days. You can always tell the family it's homework for your book club! :grin:

Wow! What a ride!

Well, it's good to know that all of my multiple viewings of Sleepy Hollow will finally pay off! :bounce:

Although, if you think about it, this is probably the most enjoyable homework you'll ever get in your school career, am I right? I'd *LOVE* it if my English teacher assigned us to read a book and watch a movie that Johnny just so happend to appear in!

I am so remiss - I haven't even re-read the story, let alone watched the film again. A friend bought me a new Lennon bio for my birthday........

I'm in the same leaky boat, so to speak. I'm halfway through A Long Way Down, but Shantaram arrived on Monday and The Libertine arrived in the post today. There is no way I can fit all of this in with work and those lousy bills I seem to have to deal with. Plus my car is acting up and I have to bring it in to be serviced. Is there some way we can stretch time? Like in Harry Potter?

Now I don't feel so bad... I haven't read it either. With DITHOT being such a task master, I thought I was going to have that recurring dream where you haven't attended a single class all semester and then show up to take the final exam.

I have a similar dream--but it's arriving to aerobics class 10 minutes late without my tape. How can I teach class without music. Sing? I think not.

And don't feel bad about ALWD. I haven't finished it either. :yikes: BUT never fear, I WILL be ready on time. I have no choice.
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

I know I would love A Long Way Down if I could just get going....but I'm such a procrastinator. It's sitting here on my computer desk, mocking me...I'm starting to hear the music from Jaws.. :freaked: ...Sleepy Hollow...I think I can bluff my way through that, after all, I've seen the movie... :eyebrow: Cramming for the book club...now that's an all-time low.
