When Cree and I woke up to a foot of snow this morning, we started reminisce about how only seven months ago, we were living next to this. We are getting antsy for spring/summer. I'm starting to get so white that I look slightly transparent and a winter of spending my days bundled up in front of my computer isn't doing anything for my figure. :) I'm just ready for it to get warm enough to ride my bike again.
One of our new years goals was to make better use of our local library instead of renting or going to the movies. We've LOVED it. Sometimes we watch films we've never seen and others that we forgot we enjoyed. This weekend I watched Coco Before Chanel while Cree was at a meeting and then I loved it so much that we watched it again together. Some other recent library borrows have included Coraline, Mrs. Pettigrew Lives for a Day (so cute!), The U.S. vs. John Lennon (made me cry like a baby), Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (I love anything Jimmy Stewart), 10 Things I Hate About You (Cree couldn't believe I hadn't seen it), Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (Hated it...didn't take the time to finish), Wuthering Heights (Poor Cree suffered through this one...I loved it...give or take a greasy mullet or two), Brothers Bloom (We both agreed they tried to be artsy but sorta missed the boat...or maybe we just didn't get it), Valentino The Last Emperor (So so good), The Terminal (Tom Hanks!), Objectified (I foolishly put this on while I was working and realized that it's a movie you have to look at. I"ll have to borrow it again)...and I think that's it. Our library has a big selection no? We love thrifty fun.
