mhalachai: (Ladybug)

so I was reading an article today that tried to match the best (and worst) book to movie adaptations using statistics. I don’t hold with “mathematics”, but I wanted to throw my hat in the ring with five of my favourites.

In no particular order, wherein I have both read the book and seen the movies:

  1. Matilda
  2. Princess Bride
  3. The Secret Garden
  4. Silence of the Lambs
  5. bonus: Sherlock Holmes (Grenada/Jeremy Brett) (I know it’s TV but in this case it counts)

I would argue that the Twilight movies are objectively better entertainment than the books, but then I didn’t actually like either, so they’re off the list.

Anyway. What are your favourite book-to-movie adaptations?

mhalachai: (Entance To General Office)

I’m working on my resume and cover letter for Dream Job and all I have so far is the decision to not re-work a past cover letter, but start from scratch.

So I have a blank piece of paper.

Anyway here’s my resume of Things They Didn’t Ask For:

  1. Very seldom cries in the office
  2. Able to calmy teach people things they should be able to figure out by googling it
  3. Is nice
  4. Maintains good relationships with the IT guys (a vastly under-practiced skill at my workplace)
  5. Makes coffee when the pot is empty and puts dirty mugs in dishwasher
  6. Has been on campus for twenty-one years so knows a lot of people and stuff
  7. Hasn’t made a single mortal enemy on campus in seventeen years
  8. Perfect driving abstract
  9. My mom thinks I’m smart

And The One Thing They Did

  1. Tells really good stories
We'll see where this goes :/
