Did you have a great day? We hope you all did and that you didn't have to travel in all the icy-snowy mess that most of the country got. Both Polly and I were in our respective homes on Christmas Eve all tucked in and not in the weather. Polly called and said she was hooking a rug watching "White Christmas" on AMC's Christmas Marathon. SO WERE WE! Except I was hand quilting. Then we both popped in our favorite Christmas movie EVER - Love Actually.It has become a Christmas tradition here. Love it. There are some scenes not for the kiddies, though. This was a very low key holiday and once we made a few holiday visits, Bill and I spent the last 30 hours or so eating, quilting, puppy training, and watching dvd's that we got for Christmas. What fun! The first one was this.
What can I say? Meryl Streep, Julia Child, Nora Ephron...... Fantastic. The next one scheduled for this afternoon is this.
No, this isn't about a quilter and her golden retriever that live in Phoenix (although that would be a great movie too) - it's about the life of French singer Edith Piaf. Bill and I saw this in the theatre when it first came out - but a glitch in the projectionist booth messed up the last 15 minutes of it. We are looking forward to seeing it glitch-free today. Do you sense a theme to these movies? Isn't Bill a good sport about watching Chick Flicks with me? Well, not to be pigeon-holed into the chick flick stereotype - we watched this movie last night.Yes, we watched and we LOVED it. If you can handle the Tarantino gore and violence - this is one spectacular movie. Really, I can't warn you enough about the gore, but Brad Pitt speaking "Eye-talian" is hysterical. If you are a student of war movies - all the movie references are quite entertaining. Happy Hibernating, everyone.
