She is sitting in the library, studying. It's her most common pastime, by hours; spending time with her sister is more enjoyable but Jaromira prefers to socialize more broadly and Katarzyna would only get in the way. This is better on net; the two of them share a room, so it isn't as though her sister's time is entirely hogged by the other girls who call this boarding school "home." Or at least "prison." Katarzyna doesn't mind it, though; the school library is excellent, and basic manners and care for the books has endeared her to the librarian to a sufficient degree to lubricate the interlibrary loans process when there's something she wants to read that they don't have.
On the one hand, you have a point, on the other hand, every other way that movie gives the finger to greek mythology.
I haven't actually seen it. I think I've seen trailers. Are you telling me the Muses weren't black R&B singers?
That I have no opinion on. However, the movie portrayed Hades as Satan and Hera as Hercules's mother, married to Zeus in an apparently completely non-dysfunctional relationship, and Pegasus was made out of clouds for Hercules instead of springing from the neck of Medusa when she was slain and being companion to Bellerophon, and the adorable will-they-or-won't-they love interest the movie gives Hercules is--at least in nomenclature--the same as Hercules's first wife in the mythos, who he slays along with their children in a fit of insanity.
Wow. I guess they thought an original movie with original pagan deities wouldn't sell?
But the DVD should come with a nice D'Aulaire's to clear up any confusion.
Maybe it does, I've only seen it on VHS.
What's your favorite movie?
Hard choice...I think I'd have to say Beauty and the Beast, honestly.
I don't really have a favorite movie so I guess it wasn't a very fair question of me. If we're limiting ourselves to Disney I'd say Aladdin.
We're not de jure limiting ourselves to Disney but the fact of the matter is that I haven't watched a lot of movies since I aged out of the period where Disney is about all grownups will let you see.
We've been allowed to see PG-13 movies since we were like nine if Renee thought they had artistic merit.
I expect Jaromira has seen more than I have.
More of a movie buff?
Apparently going to see movies with people is a common adolescent social activity.
Which is weird, considering one isn't supposed to talk.
I don't claim to understand the logic.
Xander says the idea is then you have something to talk about in whatever time remains.
I suppose. I would have asked Jaromira if I really cared about the answer.
A waste of a text! I apologize.
No, no; by all means err on the side of providing me with information.
Good policy. At least if you only communicate it to a few people and not to green ink types.
Green ink types?
For some reason it's a term for crackpots who write to newspapers and stuff? I don't know why
Hm. I might look into that. Anyway, yes, people who fail to be interesting at all should not give me unsolicited information, but ideally they shouldn't talk to me more than absolutely necessary.
