CELTA stuff

Whoohoo! Finally completed the dang application tweaks. Went from 3 pages to five.. minor edits... HAH!

and I really have to acquire a copy of 'Grammar for English Language Teachers' by Martin Parrot for myself. Very handy book, has the little excersises and teacher planning hints and tips for the lessons and such.

Still reading 'the Firm', read about 150 pages so far today. 330 pages in three days isn't so bad, I'd say. Good book, I really must watch the movie. May read more of his books after this one actually. I've pegged 'the Client' as my next read for the next weekend already.

Grisham can be very gripping when he wants to be. I read 'The Testament' a few years back and I was so let down by it - I felt almost violated. I reckon The Firm is a better book than it was a film.

Your icon. woOt!

Usually books are better than movies. That's how it was with Michael Crichton's 'Timeline' and multiple other books-made-into-movies.

I agree. Ugh! The only saving grace of Timeline (the film) was Paul Walker. Oh, yeah, and Gerard Butler too!

Hehe.. yeah.. I've seen the movie before I read the book, and hooboy, the book was almost NOTHING like the movie! They've changed so much for the movie it almost seemed like a rip off... >.

Which makes me wonder how in the heck they are going to fit all of Goblet of Fire into a 2-hour film without losing some of the more important plot twists.

They'll probably rush through things, or change something utterly in the wrong way just to get to the point... (shortcuts)

from what I've read on 'the Firm' movie so far, they've changed the damn ending in the movie completely...
