Well, I finally have something fun to talk about! I was treated to a change of scenery today and it got my happy blogging juices flowing. Finally. I was quite tired of writing angry or neutral things. So today’s topic of discussion is: Taylor Lautner! Did any of you squeal? I totally want to know if you did. I know at least someone out there did. Maybe Bonnie Talbot...
In case anyone doesn’t know, this would be Taylor Lautner aka Jacob Black in the Twilight movie series.
Now on to the story that brought about this topic. Like I said, I was at my placement and at that time, I was with the grade ten class. They were to go to the computer lab so I just sat around, reading various papers and things that the grade elevens had written. Then, for whatever reason, my attention was pulled away from my task by an rather spirited argument about one Taylor Lautner. One of the girl’s in the class, I don’t know her name, but she is one of the more talkative girls, was discussing how she planned to date and or marry Taylor. The boy, I believe his name is Jake, was totally just trying to get her going by saying that her future husband looked like he was five and Asian. I stupidly burst out laughing and was then roped into the argument.
For the purposes of this conversation, I will call the girl: Fiona. I just watched Shrek 3 on TV. There is no actual resemblance between them. I just like the name.
Fiona: You think he’s hot don’t you Madame? (It's so weird being called Madame.)
Me: Uh, I’m twenty, I’m pretty sure that’s illegal. (I chose not to mention the more dominant reason why I didn’t share her views. It’s a Catholic school and they just really don’t need to know. I’m also closer to being 21.)
Fiona: He’s eighteen, that’s not that bad.
Me: I still think it should be illegal.
Fiona: I’m seventeen.
Teacher: That’s far more appropriate.
Me: I do agree that he doesn’t look Asian though.
The argument kind of stopped there. I do have to agree with Jake, Taylor Lautner does have a baby face. Although, he is a good looking guy. I mean, I tend to go female and usually older than me, but hey... he’s certainly not unfortunate.
I’m pretty sure that was a major contributing factor to the whole hotness thing. Not really my type. Should I pull out my umbrella for drool protection?
I love my placement. I’m having so much fun. God high school kids are funny. Probably because I don’t actually have to teach them anything. But watching them and listening to them is funny. Right now I think being there and working there is my favourite thing. Isn’t it strange that I’m having a ball no matter what I’m doing and my host teacher (who was formerly my English Lit teacher) is constantly worried that I’m not doing enough or that I’m bored?
Well, that’s all I have to say today. Do I want to know how many of you spent more than five minutes drooling over that picture?
