Hot for Teacher


Meet Cute

Gary Fuller


1.) What was your first impression of me?

that you may actually be Clark Kent. I’m still not 100% sure that you’re not.

I see you've checked your humor at the door...again.

2.) What is your idea of a truly romantic evening with me?

you’re adamant that we have a date night every weekend. no matter what we do, whether it’s going to a movie, having a picnic, or ice skating, you always wear a jacket and tie. I tease you about it but you say it’s your way of showing me how important making time for us is to you. and that you really like giving me your jacket when I get cold.

3.) Something that you’d like to change in me but don’t have the nerve to tell me

when you chew gum, you sound like a cow chewing it’s cud.



4.) Which 3 parts of my body are your favorites, and why?

choose? I can’t. I won’t. and you can’t make me!

Detention with Mr. Fuller is my favorite.
Detention with Mr. Fuller? yes, please!


5.) 3 qualities that attracted you when we first met, or once you got to know me

kind, affectionate, never give up on those you love


6.) What is our favorite movie to watch together, and our favorite song?

movie: Fast Times at Ridgemont High

song: Greatest Love of All by Whitney Houston


7.) Fruit or vegetable I resemble, and why

Potato, because Trey & Donnie say you have eyes in the back of your head

don't think I can't see you. now behave!
don’t think I can’t see you, I can. so behave!


8.) Our first date, where did it take place and what did we do?

 you had to chaperon Senior Prom and took me as your date. I told Donnie that you drank too much of the spiked punch, to explain away your dance moves. you didn’t actually drink the punch.

9.) If we hadn’t met, where would you be right now?

late for everything.

taking into account normal traffic patterns and current weather conditions, you only have 5 minutes left to eat or you'll be late.

10.) What was on your mind the last time we were intimate?

my obsession with you in wet clothes is going to get us into trouble one of these days

Trey! turn that off and get back inside! now!

11.) What was the first thing we said to one another?

I accidentally rear ended your car on your way to school one morning. when I saw you get out of the car, I became a bit tongue-tied

*cue Heavenly choirs singing*

you weren’t much better than me, flustered because the accident made you late for work. that’s what I gathered, anyway, from the few words I could make sense of out of your rambling. you also told me your name was Gary Morris. I must have given you whiplash, for you to have forgotten your own name! thankfully Trey was with you and took charge of things, even convincing the tow truck driver to drop us all off at the High School. the ride over was awkward, with me not being able to speak and you smiling at me like a goon.


it all worked out in the end because next thing I knew, we were having coffee together in the teacher’s lounge, chatting together like old friends. I don’t even drink coffee. or work at the High School.

Trey filmed the whole thing, of course.

12.) What do you like the best about me?

your ‘Wise Guy’ impersonation. it’s cute that you think it’s good.

Thrillers Are Supposed to Be Thrilling

Into the Storm: I liked it. That was a relief! because I had started seeing some ho-hum reviews all of a sudden. I was also getting a wee bit nervous because I thought it might scare me too much. I was anxious during the movie, for sure (my muscles were all tight when we walked out of the cinema!) but I wasn’t scared. much.

instead of sitting in uncomfortable positions for eternities during tornado drills, just show this scene instead. mission accomplished!


The biggest surprise for me? That the movie had tons of character and not just special effects (like some of the reviews were claiming). I liked that there were several different human stories going on at the same time. It helped break things up and not let the overall storyline get bogged down in too much drama, yet there was enough that we were able to get to know the characters and care about them. Gary and Donnie pulled at my heart strings not only because I’ve been there done that (as the teenager)

but also because I now have a teenager. Trey kind of annoyed me but as his story developed I liked the outcome, as well as Donnie’s. I wanted to be part of that family hug in the rain because I had grown to care about each of them and see things from their individual perspectives.

As for the tornadoes, I thought it was all done realistically. I’ve heard mumblings about the tornadoes conveniently giving people time to move from one scene to another, but that’s how it really is. When I had my tornado scare, the storm was there… and then it wasn’t. It got really quiet afterwards and it was like everything shifted back to normal. I could hear the drizzling rain and the beeping of the garbage truck, when just moments before it was all wind and hail and treetops kissing the ground.

the cats are still hiding. just saying.
That’s one of the aspects I really liked about the movie, that everyone wasn’t running around with a clear intent of what they were supposed to be doing. because there is that lull when you’re like what do I do now? So when a tornado is close and we want to scream at the characters to “run, take cover!” I think it’s entirely realistic that they don’t do that straight away. Even though it’s scary, bad weather is mesmerizing. Real life isn’t like the movies, you aren’t always able to think clearly and do the right thing.

Lori, will you never learn? Don’t Look Back!
I’m not saying there weren’t any problems with the movie but only two things really bothered me. 1.) the church scene was lame. I understand the need for that confrontation, that the boss was getting too wrapped up in things and ended up pushing the young cameraman farther than he wanted to go, but the acting in that scene could use some work.

I do believe in tornadoes. I do! I do!
2.) the Titus came equipped with everything to withstand a tornado, yet it didn’t have an axe for cutting away fallen trees or debris? One of the first things you grab for bad weather clean up is an axe or chainsaw. Not a complaint really, just an observation.

So yes, I’d watch this again. and again. and possibly some more, because Gary was everything I wanted him to be and Donnie found a way into my heart rather quickly. Plus, it was fun to watch! I think the naysayers are forgetting about the fun part. Thrillers are supposed to be thrilling, not Shakespeare.

Oh! and hey people-who-choose-the-movie-trailers: just because I like action thrillers does not mean I automatically like horror films. The psycho dolls and Ouija boards scared the bejesus outta me!

scarier than Neville and Nora combined! 

“Into the Storm” vs “The Crucible” confession

I’m more excited about the upcoming action-thriller Into the Storm than I am the respectable stage play of The Crucible. While The Crucible’s John Proctor looks like he’s chock-full of sex appeal, I’m finding myself drawn to Into the Storm’s loafer-wearing vice principal Gary Morris more than I thought I would.

work it, Mr. Morris!

Gary is a father who is searching for his teenage child; he’s a teacher who willingly carries responsibility on his shoulders; he’s a man who finds himself drawn to a woman, not in a sexually fueled way but more like “we’re in this together.” These are all things that appeal to me and themes that regularly show up in my daydreams.

yes, I fantasize about fathers hugging their children in the rain all the time, don’t you?

Now there is the whole aspect of me being afraid of tornadoes in real life to consider, so seeing Into the Storm that first time may be nail-bitingly nerve wracking but I think it’s going to be more of a it’s-fun-sometimes-to-be-scared experience that will be enjoyable.

yes, the ladies go for the high-wasted trousers, Richard. we’ve researched every aspect of this story for accuracy

And then there is the important fact that I will actually be able to take part in seeing Into the Storm with relatively little disruption to my life; The Crucible with it’s financial, geographical, and time constraints will be leaving me out of the action. I’ve tried my hardest to find a way around these issues but alas, it is just not meant to be.

I greatly enjoyed reading The Crucible, I found the premise and the issues it raised interesting and relevant from both a historical and social angle. Not to mention from a fandom standpoint as well…

“oh, let’s not go there”

The accounts of the play that I have been reading sound very emotionally intense, and to witness that “live” may carry a heavy weight. Let’s just forget about the whole wait-in-a-ridiculously-long-line-in-a-back-alley-after-an-intense-4-hour-experience-to-steal-2-minutes-of-the-object-of-my-affection’s-attention; I doubt I’d be taking part in that even if I were to attend. I adore you Richard, I really do, but that doesn’t seem worth the hassle.

probably shouldn't have said that, gif

A Matinee performance may leave me in a better mood, since I regularly go to bed at 10pm, but even then I would feel off-kilter standing in line just to say Hello. I’d feel pressured into getting a pic and autograph, even though I don’t really need them, in order to receive the friendly handshake and 3 seconds of looking into those lovely blue peepers that I truly desire. I’d promptly look away, blush, and drown in my awkwardness immediately after, of course.

especially if I have to “catch” the handshake!

No, I think I better stick to the sweaty palms brought on by fake tornadoes and the fantasy of Gary Morris rescuing me, it will be safer.

just take the damn loafers off Gary, damsel in distress waiting here!

Confession: I prefer the Into the Storm experience over The Crucible one because in my fantasy Gary will rescue me…not everyone who is standing in front of me, and then everyone behind me as well. I want to be memorable. I’m selfish like that.
