welcome to camazotz

A Wrinkle in Time was on TV last night. I didn't find out about it until the last 15 minutes of the movie. I was actually thinking about the book a few days ago. It was one of my favorites as a kid. I don't have a copy of it any more because I donated it to my mother's grade school library. I looked for it in BookBuyers but couldn't find it.

In other news, I was able to schedule a meeting with one of the Right Management consultants. This went better than the workshops I've had so far. Since I'm not trying to change careers and have a good idea of what I want to do, she suggested some other workshops I could take. She agreed with me that I should focus on bringing my skills up to date. She also suggested I try to find someone to give me practice technical interviews.

I had a chance to talk to Andrew from the NOC after the meeting. He hasn't been going to the workshops but has been using their office for email, fax, etc. He seems to like going to the office. I might be more inclined to go to the office regularly if it were not so far away from where I live.

My teacher says it's ok for me to work on Spinning Song now. I will continue to try to get Für Elise and Señorita Elisa up to tempo.

Would write more but I have to get to sleep ...

Is A Wrinkle in Time the book/film that was the inspiration for Somewhere in Time? I know there was a work that was, but...

It's based on Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time. There's also a theatre version. The 'theatre for younger audiences' troop at my community college put it on last year. I don't know if the movie was based on the play script or not.

It was terrible. Don't feel bad about missing it.

As far as the book that was the inspiration for Somewhere in Time, the book I imagine you're thinking of is Time and Again.

What didn't you like about it? The last fifteen minutes that I caught seemed different from what I remember of the book.

Well, that's certainly a start -- that big parts of it were different from the book. Then there was the overpowering, cheesy music. Then there were the cutesified witches (I'm surprised they didn't hire Whoopi Goldberg). The only time I could enjoy it is if I could completely detach from the fact that it was supposedly based on a book of the same name.
