Snow (Oh No!)

I'm sure everyone who talked to me yesterday heard me complain about the snow we got. I'm not big on cold weather, because I get cold very easily. I like milder weather, therefore Spring and Fall. I can take the inevitable snow...if it comes after Halloween. October 9th and snow already on the ground? No way. I am trying to accept it.

After Friday at the King's Head, Kirk and I decided to catch a movie. We picked out Couples Retreat, which ended up being a rather interesting choice, considering that it takes place on a tropical contrast to the weather we were having outside. It wasn't bad. I like Vince Vaughn quite a bit, and he was reasonably amusing. Of course, Where The Wild Things Are comes out next week! I am getting very excited about it.

With Canadian Thanksgiving coming out soon, does anyone have a favourite Thanksgiving movie or tv special? I saw Pieces of April a number of years ago and I recall it being very moving. It stars Katie Holmes from her pre-Tom Cruise life, and she did a really good job in it. I think at times now she can be very over-publicized, in part due to her marriage to Cruise. I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving. The day after my Dad always bakes bread in our bread maker and we have the leftovers, and there's nothing at all like fresh bread. With the day off on Monday, I may put in a movie over the afternoon. I have several at home that I have owned for a year or more...and still have not seen. I swore to remedy that over the summer, but it never happened.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


  1. Pieces of April: great movie - love the Magnetic Fields soundtrack too; however, they're now using the title song in a Hewlett Packard ad or something...

    The best Thanksgiving movie: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, hands down!

  2. I've never actually seen Planes, Trains and Automobiles, though I've heard a lot of people rave about it.
