man #1 "of all Charles Dickens' novels which is your favorite?"
man#2 "probably Great Expectations, it was exceptionally well written"
A novel written by Charles Dickens
in weekly parts from December 1860 to August 1861. Great Expectations is the story about Pip, a selfish, whiny teenager that grows up into a "gentleman." This is a novel assigned to many high school students to read, and probably the most boring book in existence. My advice, don't waste your time, cliffs notes work.
1) Thanks, Charles Dickens, for wasting two months of my life with your crappy book, Great Expectations.
2) I would call Bernadette, but she is reading that god-awful book Great Expectations.
A powerful dancing diva choir that pulverizes other show choirs with their electric moves, outstanding vocals, fancy footwork and mind boggling costumes. Under new direction since 2010, 'GE' has grown new wings and become even more badass with shows like "It's not easy being green" and "Man vs. machine", both shows that step over the safe borderline between what-were-you-thinking and why-didn't-I-think-of-that.
GE requires all members to try out each year in a two day tryout process involving dance techniques and vocal auditions. It is sometimes revered as a cult within the school district, as mandatory 8 hours practices are held after school every day during competition season.
Yep, Great Expectations really knows how to represent Twinsburg, OH. I hear they get in the paper more than their football team...
