Pressure Cooker

October 31st, 2010

A few weeks ago, I decided to watch ‘Pressure Cooker’ while I made dinner. I put the laptop on the island and I sat down thinking – I will just sit here and watch this for a minute and then I will get back up and start dinner.  Ninety minutes later, I am wiping the tears from my eyes rejoicing that their are women like Mrs Stephenson in the world. We need more Mrs. Stephensons!  Somebody go get one of those smart atheist scientists to make some clones of her!

Needless to say, dinner was a little late that night.

    Cold weather’s here, time to start making my library book and Netflix lists to get through winter. Always love your reviews. This looks like my type of teacher!

    this reminds me of so many kids in my children’s school. It’s a magnet school so my suburban sheltered two mingle each day with primarily minority urban poor. There are very, very good people trying to make their way out of one lifestyle to another with a heck of a lot working against them. Support anything that helps a person improve themselves. Really, the challenges they face can be unfathomable to so many of us.

    Somewhat unrelated, but falls under the category of book:) I read City of Veils over the weekend. Great read! A murder mystery set in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The social and religious rules that impact the investigation and indeed the crime itself were so interesting. It was a cover-to-cover read for me.

    The Books & Letters section is my most favorite part of your blog. I am always looking for new books and/or movies to watch, but always seem to go back to things that I have read/watched before. Your blog gives me some good ideas on how to get out of that rut. This looks like a great movie- can’t wait to watch it.
