notes to myself

I need to remember to buy myself a bottle of Bobbi Brown Beach.
I can no longer live without it.
Not the expensive bottle (she says hissing).
And not any time soon, but someday, and forever...

That last bit is from Casablanca - and look what I found:


Cut just a hair short - we miss Rick's expression, it is the most quoted movie scene in our home.

ex:
Me in the kitchen: do you see all these leftovers? I'm shocked.
K from the dining room: SHOCKED! SHOCKED TO FIND THERE'S GAMBLING GOING ON IN HERE.

All of us in the car: K - Did you hear about that new restaurant closing? I was shocked.
Either kid in the backseat: SHOCKED. SHOCKED TO FIND THERE'S GAMBLING GOING ON IN HERE.

Doesn't Renault have a fine hat?



a great hat, on Renault

Great braid - rakish tilt. Fabulous hat.

What's this?

Clive

Clive Owen!
My god! They've photoshopped the life out of his face.
And, after doing some research, I'm shocked to discover that he's being forced to wear pubic hair on his head.

Clive Owen

I'm enamored of this dress -

dress

K says I would look like a clown.
And with that, my hopes for it were completely dashed.

We're off to barbecue with K's mom, only it isn't a barbecue, it's just eating outdoors. Or not.

We saw the pirate movie last night and, while I suppose I will do a review for you later (maybe) I just have to say that Middle and I sat there for what seemed like EVER AND EVER DEAR GOD, and we just had NO FREAKING CLUE what was happening.
Youngest seemed to follow it all just fine though.

So.

I'm afraid I have to agree with k on the dress. A clown or a little girl.

Mark Kermode (respected UK cinema critic) ranted for 15 minutes without breathing on how awful this film was. He said that Keira Knightley and Oh. Bland were so wooden that when they embraced it was like a pair of nesting tables and you could smell the sawdust.
I'm thinking that 'Zodiac' sounds like a better bet for this wet Sunday afternoon.

That dress...just don't do it to yourself...one of your boys will take a photo of you in it and blackmail you later in life.

Well, if you insist on wearing it with the striped tights and the giant shoes...

The film critic in The Chicago Tribune wrote a review "What the Hell is Going On?" about the pirate movie. He said he sat there forever (seemed like it) and did not have a clue as to "what the hell was going on."
He's begging readers to email him with a synopsis so he doesn't have to go see it again.

Guess I'll take a pass, too, after reading these reviews.
Anyhow and oh well,
Ahoy! lassie and ye 'ave a fine time at yer picnic, ye hear?

I'm trying to figure out what pirate movie your're talking about... I must live under a rock, 'cause I truly don't know if Johnny is at it in the Carribean again - yet. and somehow, I just don't want to play the Google Game...

what's Bobbi Brown Beach?

and Clive Owen, yes.

me: is this him?
husband: yes.
me: you know who I'm talking about, right? the actor.
husband: yes, it's him.
me: you know, the one who starred in "Children of men" and "closer", Clive Owen.
husband: yes, it's him.
me: but he looks.... different.
husband: yes, it's him.

I'm sorry, his hair looks like that because I couldn't stop running my fingers through it.

While he laid in my bed.

And I fed him chocolate-covered strawberries.

Naked.

Him and me. Not the strawberries.
