I’ve just returned from a temp placement agency, where they viewed my resume, interviewed me, and tested my Office software skills. I’m happy to report that I got a typing speed of 90 wpm (and here I thought I was only a 60!), got high ratings for Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, and aced spelling and grammar. I present to you… Paulo, the Uber-Temp! Yay!
My referrals just turned up this search request: “Comparing Tale of Two Cities to Star Trek.” Well, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan began and ended with the beginning and ending quotes of Dickens’ novel, which Spock presented as a birthday present to the aging Admiral Kirk. I suppose you can draw some rough parallelisms between the death of Spock in Engineering and the self-sacrifice of Sydney Carton to save Charles Darnay.
I found a little more on that here.
