If you had to be trapped inside a movie for 5 days, which movie would you pick?
Wow, this is a hard one. I have a handful of movies I adore. I can't really narrow it down to one.
If I wanted to laugh for 5 days straight, I'd probably pick Coming to America. I went through 3 VHS tapes of that movie, and have since purchased 2 DVD copies. I could watch it every day.
I think I would pretty happy living in Singing in the Rain for 5 days. I love everything about that movie. It's another that I own several copies of, both on tape and DVD. It was one of the first musicals I ever introduced to Stud, and we used to watch it every weekend when he was young.
And, who WOULDN'T want to spend 5 days living inside The Wizard of Oz? I mean, really!
Oo, I just thought of another one. Dirty Dancing!! I would have loved to spend that vacation with the Housemans at Kellerman's. Yet another movie I own more than one copy of, not to mention the soundtrack. Oh, yes, I really do. AND, it's on cassette!! I used to play it in my car all the time. I actually bought Volume 2, which really were songs that I don't even think were IN the movie. Magnum and I saw Dirty Dancing at the theater about 5 times. It was at a second-run theater that only cost $1 at the time, but still. He clearly didn't mind watching Jennifer Grey dancing around in her cut-offs and tied-up blouse. :P
Eesh, I better stop there, or I'll be typing until tomorrow.
We're supposed to get our first snow today! YAHOO!!!! And, they keep saying it's "going to stick" and that we could get an inch! I'm so excited. When I let the dogs out this morning at 5 am, I think we were at our high temperature for the day. It was right around 48. It's supposed to start raining, then snowing in about an hour and a half (around 10 am) and by this afternoon, it's supposed to drop to the 20s. Stud had to start at 6am this morning, and ran out in just his uniform. I'm tempted to drop off his hoodie at work, but I know he'd be embarrassed. Guess he'll just have to be cold. Good thing he only works about 5 minutes from home.
(Jen, I know you want to punch me in the face right now for being so excited. I'm sorry, I can't help it! Maybe you guys won't get as much, since you're so far north of me. :D )
I'm hoping to see my Monkey today. She was actually invited to a birthday party at my friend's house. Her little girl is turning 4 today. You may remember way back when she was pregnant I had a baby shower for her at my house with some friends from The Hell-Hole. You may also remember that her daughter being born on Veterans' Day was so PERFECT because both of her parents are vets. Anyway, I hope we get to go sing "Happy Birthday" and have a cupcake with her.
In the meantime...
