two movies

I watched two excellent movies this week.

Larry Crowne. Written, directed, and starring Tom Hanks. It was fabulous. It was funny, and sweet, and just made your heart feel good. And Julia Roberts is stunning always. I loved it.

Midnight in Paris. Um, mostly I'm speechless because I loved it so much. Not a chick flick, as I originally guessed. It will make you want to go to Paris really bad, and it is good for art/history nerds like me. Woody Allen knows about good production design, he does.

Yep. I SO recommend both.

rainy days are good days

i don't know what it is about waking up to the sound of rain pounding on the roof.
but i think it's my favorite sound in the whole world.

my other favorite sounds today:
the royal tenenbaums soundtrack.
wigwam - bob dylan
love love love - avalanche city
crossfire - brandon flowers
jessie's girl - rick springfield

also, danny gave me a globe for christmas. he is awesome.

a lame feeling
is the one you get when you go to watch your favorite show on tv (or on hulu, in my case) and see that there was no new episode that week. darn you, re-runs!

that was the old me.

now that i edit a tv show for my job, i absolutely love the weeks we re-air old episodes. i barely have to work! i simply send an email that says "re-air episode 630." and i get to stay home and play monopoly.

now when i go to hulu and see that modern family has re-run episodes two weeks in a row, the new me doesn't get mad. the new me simply says, 'good job, editor. you work hard and we all love you.'

i love re-runs.

editor out.

i like it.

i love modern family

What makes a great salesman? No big secret. Simply follow the ABC's of salesmanship. Always Be Closing. Don’t Ever Forget, Great Home Ideas Just Keep Lurking Mostly Nearby. Often People Question Realtor’s Sincerity. Take Umbrage. Violators Will... uh. X, X, X, Xylophone... Your Zone. Boom! That’s how you sell a house.

sunday morning.

there's probably something wrong with you if you set your alarm for eleven o'clock AM
and still snooze it.
and by "you" i mean me.
i blame it on the cozy indian quilt and the sound the heater makes.

rachel wears flowers in her hair.
olivia is just a sweet lil thing, so she has a bow.
jackie is the french one, because she has a lot of boyfriends, like a french mademoiselle.
