I'm a Christian husband currently finishing a Software Eng degree and wondering what God's plan for my life is. I sleep soundly in the knowledge that time will assuredly answer that question with little effort on my part.

My friend Tammy

Well it's been a happy little Easter week off, although the timing of our midsession break is a little bizarre (like it's only 17% of the way through the session and all).

We watched the film Pleasantville last night on Libby's recommendation, which was reliable as usual. We both decided that it would be a fantastic film to write HSC essays on because it's just dripping with filmic techniques and low-hanging essay fruit - like the part where all the store-owners in Pleasantville put signs in the windows saying "No Coloreds" or the Mayor of Pleassantville gives a Hitler-esque speech calling for them to "separate out that which is pleasant from that which is unpleasant" right in front of a giant Swastika handshake symbol.

If only I could go back and resit my English exam! Either that or go on to become curriculum developer for the NSW English syllabus and put it in... Nah, we'll have a national certificate by the time that happens (I'm about three graduate degrees away from being able to do that)

We also rented Serenity, the Firefly movie, which we hope that my family will watch after we've left, and the full second season of the television series Thank God You're Here, which has some fantastic comedic actors on it.

Anyway, showertime now. Until next time, adios.
