Coincidences related to Les Mis

Obsess over Harry Potter, regale us with Fluffy's latest escapades, ask for advice on what colour to dye your hair, and continue the raging debate of Pirates vs. Ninjas -- whatever strikes your fancy.

At least 3 of us want to read Les Mis for the oral Matura exam... :D

Aha, thank you. I saw her Twitter photo too, some make-up artistry there!

Yesterday we were rehearsing the battle sequences, and at one point I was talking to one of our Gavroches. One minute I'm talking to her and the next she's bounded up to the barricade and grabbed a spare gun, squeaking,
"Connor (Enjolras) has dropped his gun, so I'm taking it now!"
Bearing in mind this is a ten year old who hasn't read the book, that was very in character.
I'm the one to shout "Down with Polignac!"

That's precious!
A little more tangential, but I've been teaching one of my lessons this week on status. Two classes have brought up the question of does being taller or bigger make you higher status and being smaller makes you less powerful/influential/important. Two of my classes therefore got treated to a chat about the greatness of Napoleon as a result.

Again another post concerning professors named Orestes (there's more than one in the medical school).

So this particular doctor named Orestes got tasked to give our class the lecture on cardiac radiology. While trying to get our sleepy class to comment on chest x-rays, particularly those with enlarged hearts, he suddenly mentioned something about that being 'a heart full of love'.

That was enough to wake me up, and send me into a giggle fit in the front row.

Today I sat in our cafeteria and was reading about Les Mis in Spain on Facebook when a girl I don't know which was sitting at the table next to me, started singing "I did not live until today, how can I live when we are parted"...

Currently watching "The Alamo", 2004 version. The final battle reminds me so much of Les Mis, with the Mexican army modeled and dressed after the French one, even with sappers advancing. Not to mention taking a 'Last Stand'. I'm sure there was some fan-fic with Les Amis fighting there written already?

In my U.S. History class, we have these things called Senteo clickers that we practice tests on. One of the questions was like who did this (I can't remember what it was :oops: ) and one of the choices was Jean Valjean XD
Rory listen she's not dead. *Actually* she is dead. But its not the end of the world. Well it is the end of the world. Actually its the end of the universe.

I'm rewatching the West Wing, which is one of my favourite tv shows of all time, and I had it on in the background while studying when I heard President Bartlet saying "It doesn't make them Jean Valjean". He does rather like his intellectual references :D

EDIT: Several episodes later, there's a shot of a presidential motorcade in Times Square and the Les Mis billboard for the original Broadway production is there :)

In tonight's episode of "The Crazy Ones," the main character (played by Robin Williams) was asked to give the eulogy at the funeral of a man who was, shall we say, not very well-liked. He quoted the line "To love another person is to see the face of God," even giving due credit as to where the line came from, when talking about how the man, for all his faults, had at least one redeeming quality in that he was loved by his daughter. Quite nicely done, I thought. ^_^

Also, some time ago, I was driving home at night with my dad. I was traveling down the highway, and a car pulled in front of me. Its license number was "24601." That car sped on and I lost it shortly afterward, so I sang "Stars" the rest of the trip home. :lol:
