I don't know what it is about my Brit Lit class that just utterly kills me, but it does. I remember having a horrible time writing my first paper, and I have been this time, too. It's due Wednesday at 5pm. My original goal was to have it done to turn in today during discussion, but that didn't happen. Then, my goal was to turn it in tomorrow during lecture. But I don't think that's going to happen, either. Tonight I have a complete draft and a solid(ish) thesis, but now I'd prefer to be able to edit it tomorrow.

My part-time job where my parents live was working in a retail store. And I'll be returning there the day after Thanksgiving....for one day only! But I called them to find out what my hours are...since I haven't worked since January, they didn't want me early in the morning (ie, no waking up at 4am for me, SWEET). BUT, they put me down for working 11am to 8:30pm! Grrr.....I get a 1-hour break, but whatever. My employers expect that I will use this hour to go and shop in the store. Instead, I will run across the street and read manga in large, plushie chairs. Working the day after Thanksgiving isn't all that bad. It's the only day of the year our store ever schedules enough people, and they usually give us free Subway sandwiches and cookies. WHICH IS COOL WITH ME!
Still, I'm bringing Antoine home with me for the holiday, and he will need something to do. Poor Antoine, :( Let us pity him, and the possibility that he might have to spend all 9.5 hours with my family.

First of all, seeing this was fun, because I went with my friends Gretchen, Jaci, Jaci's boyfriend Tim, and Sandy. Also, it was fun BECAUSE WE SAW IT IN 3D. The entire movie was in 3D! It was so awesome.

I enjoyed the movie more than I thought I would. I feel like the animation looked better in the movie than it did in the preview. People's skin had very fine hairs on it, like on the outside of Beowulf's nose. Extremely detailed. Animation of the horses was very weak, and the fabrics on people's bodies was weird. But overall, the animation was quite beautiful.

The feel of the Anglo-Saxons was totally awesome - burping, drinking, sexing, and above all - bragging like no tomorrow.

As for the story itself? Well, a lot was changed. And because I am an English major, I have Things to Say About That.

I will be so glad when this paper is done. Never mind that I have three more to work on....
