I've taken to watching movies every night.
It feels like Christmas Vacation.
Only without the creche, the presents, the love or the vacation.
But I'm catching up. I've inherited several movies from co-workers cleaning out their offices and often at HEB I get suckered into picking up a $7.99 DVD if I love it and don't own it or if I always meant to see it but hadn't gotten around to it.
Last night I watched Finding Neverland. It came out several years ago when my family was avoiding all movies remotely reeking of adultery. The night before that was Mona Lisa Smile. Both delightful flicks. Finding Neverland was better though. Johnny Depp. How could you expect otherwise? A couple weeks ago Chris and Michelle and I re-watched Stand By Me. What a great film. I forgot how endearing that movie is...
Tonight it's either Closer (another we avoided, I think), Girl, Interrupted or Munich, all movies I own but have never seen.
Usually when I watch too many movies, I begin to wish that i was a beautiful actress of the silver screen. Or any screen for that matter. But quite frankly my face is too round, my lips too thin and my clothes would never be cool enough for the tabloids. I'd always be listed in the What Not To Wear section I'm afraid. Ah well... since I won't be becoming a famous movie star anytime in the near future, I guess I won't worry too much about it.
