Professor Jamison
Thursday, January 26, 2006

The other day in one of my classes, the professor was talking about a book and how it, or something about it was supposedly being made into a movie. She mentioned that if it came out during the semester and any of the students went to see it, then she would give extra credit. (I was thinking, "cool, that sounds like fun".)

She then went on to say that last semester she gave extra credit to her students that went and saw Serenity . My hand shot into the air--how could I let that comment go by without saying some thing? All red-faced, embarrased, and excited I blurted out--when she was finished, of course--that Serenity was the coolest movie EVER ! Someone else in the class agreed with me, too!

The best part was that my professor let me speak my piece and then she agreed with me when she said that she was a "rabid Joss Whedon fan". There was a little Joss Whedon moment in my English class! And the best part was that it was about Firefly and Serenity ! Yay! I go to the best Universtiy EVER! (Okay, not ever, but that was SO COOL!) Go Utes! (I go to the Universtiy of Utah.)

That's awesome that your Prof gives extra credit for movie attendance. May I ask what course your prof teaches? And what movie she was thinking of sending you off to this semester? I sometimes wish I had access to a classroom setting where folks could talk about popular culture (like movies). My friends get tired of me waxing philosophical about movies, etc -- if I had a class to go to, my friends could have a rest.

Happy New Year, and good luck with your studies!
