Silly pun aside, the movie "FEAST" was pretty interesting.  Again, this Easter was a time for crazy movies.  I was at my boyfriend TkOut's house, and I had a choice of "Seven Days in Utopia" (a golfing movie - ick), or whatever TkOut could find.  I chose the latter - and wound up watching a movie from 2005 that I haven't seen in years.  Watching it again, I was surprised to see some familiar faces.  Navi Rawat ("The O.C.", "House of Sand and Fog"), Henry Rollins, Krista Allen ("The Final Destination", "Liar Liar", and "Anger Management") and Josh Zuckerman ("Sex Drive" and "Surviving Christmas") are just a few.  I can almost guarantee that you'll recognize other faces as well.

Sorry for the long absence, I just recently switched jobs.  I'm now teaching almost full time at a new school.  For those of you who noticed the name change, sorry about that.  Being a teacher, I'd rather not share my personal life and all my interests with my students.  They're good kids, but I'm an only child and I adore my privacy.       :)

In any event, I'm back.  You can expect more regular reviews and such.  And yes - if you're an aspiring author, feel free to make your mark on the page.
