Ballerina Story Time

**There's still time to enter my latest giveaway!!!**

This morning, I was happy to have a real live Ballerina come to story time today!! We had an amazing turnout, and several little girls who dressed up in their little tutu's - SO CUTE!! (One little girl's tutu inspired some tutu envy from Ms. Real!! It was trimmed with pink leopard print!!)

Anyway, the Ballerina told the story of Cinderella, showed off some special moves, and even brought the kids (who wanted to!) up to dance some steps with her. Even some of the little boys got into the dancing!! The Ballerina who came to our branch was great, and we are so thankful that we were able to have this program!!!

Tonight, as always, is FMRNS!! As you may remember, we watched Burlesque last week as an "In Consideration" movie, since neither A nor I had seen it. Well, we liked the music, we liked the costumes, and it was overall an entertaining movie, however...we decided that it was, in fact, NOT LIST-WORTHY!!!! Sad. Sorry Christina, sorry Cher. Although, Cher has nothing to worry about - we've watched a couple of her movies that WERE list-worthy (such as Silkwood from 1983, Mask from 1985, If These Walls Could Talk from 1996 and Tea With Mussolini from 1999).

We decided that since Burlesque was NOT LIST-WORTHY!!! that we would incorporate Bonus Night this week. So, in honor of Elizabeth Taylor, we watched a mystery from 1980 called The Mirror Crack'd, also starring Angela Lansbury and Tony Curtis. This one was DEFINITELY list-worthy!!

We also had Bonus Night - FMRNS Revisited, where we re-watched a film that we had already watched before. Sometimes we do this in the form of "Best of" (where we scan through the movie and watch all the best parts), other times the movie requires a full screening. This was one of those full screening times where we watched the fabulous comedy, To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar from 1995 starring Patrick Swayze, Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo. HILARIOUS!!!

This week, we are still in RIP Elizabeth Taylor mode. We'll be watching the epic film Cleopatra from 1963, also starring Richard Burton and Rex Harrington.
