Happy Tuesday everyone!!!! Since Thursday is Thanksgiving, I am sure you know what I'll be reading about this week!! Here are the books I picked out:
And, as always, it's FMRNS Night!!! In case you aren't sure, FMRNS = Fabulous Movies Real's Never Seen Night. My friend 'A' and I have been getting together every Tuesday for the past 3 years. Before that, our movie watching was more sporadic. 'A' became my first friend when I moved to Nashville. The whole fabulous movie thing started one night while 'A' was asking me if I had seen this movie, or that movie... And I hadn't. 'A' decided that he was going to take it upon himself to educate me, and I am so glad he did!!! Some of the movies on the list that I hadn't seen before FMRNS was developed include:
The Color Purple (1985) with Danny Glover, Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey.
Gone With the Wind (1939) with Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh
The Graduate (1967) with Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft.
Charlotte's Web (1973)
Indiana Jones (all of them - 1981, 1984, 1989) with Harrison Ford.
Several Audry Hepburn movies
and pretty much all the Hitchcock movies.
We watch movies from every genre and decade. We have now watched over 150 movies.
The movies aren't the only thing, though. We always have a fabulous dinner, some great snacks, and our reality talent competition of the moment (American Idol, America's Next Top Model, So You Think You Can Dance) And we laugh...a lot. In fact, we have been known to laugh so hard that our tummies hurt and we have tears rolling down our cheeks. We call that "A's Pilates." We always have so much fun!!!
Last week we were going to watch La Strada (1954), the only Fellini movie on the list, but we just weren't in the mood for that type of movie. So, instead we watched The Terminator. We also had a special edition of FMRNS Night this past Friday, where we watched Jackie Brown.
So, this week, we are definitely going to watch La Strada - we have it out from Interlibrary Loan, and it needs to go back!
