LSO's really get the stinkiest end of the shit stick at this time of the year because we have no idea if we have a job, what hours it will entail if we do get one or what Grade level we will working with. It is the pits! The teachers all know where they are going weeks ahead of us, it really makes us feel undervalued and vulnerable, and it happens every year, the dreaded final weeks of the school year spent in worry and uncertainty. It really puts the F.U. in FUN!
I suppose a little anticipation didn't kill anyone, it just pisses a lot of people off. It's hardly the end of the world, but it would be a seriously big blow to not get a contract for next year and there are just no guarantees. Stupid worry, I need to distract myself!

You either love Pee-wee Herman or you hate him, and this movie is exactly the same, you'll love it or hate it. I really like Pee-wee's non-conventional style of humour, and I thought that this was an absolute crack up of a movie. Directed by Tim Burton, this is a comical retelling of the 1948 Italian classic The Bicycle Thief, outlining Pee-Wee's nationwide adventure in search of his lost bicycle.
Pee-wee's red bicycle is the envy of the town, and his prize possession. When it is stolen from outside of Dottie's house, he embarks on an adventure of a lifetime across the country, meeting all kinds of colourful characters, as he searches for his beloved bicycle.
Pee-wee's Big Adventure gained a cult following, grossed over $40 million worldwide and spawned a sequel called Big Top Pee-wee, which was not as good in my opinion. The financial success of this film and the equally successful Beetlejuice in 1988 was what prompted Warner Bros. to hire Tim Burton as the director for Batman, and the rest is history.
FINAL SAY: You don't wanna get mixed up with a guy like me. I'm a loner, Dottie, a rebel.
