Look what I got:
See it? Look closer:
Isn’t that the coolest? It’s just like the Lock and Key cover. My friend Travis made it. And I’m going to be giving one away through my website sometime in Spring 2008, so stay tuned!
In other news, I think I mentioned here that we got Showtime back in the fall because we decided we could not endure the long wait for Season Three of Weeds to come out on DVD. And with Showtime, we also got The Movie Channel, which I have now decided should be called The Dirty Dancing Channel. I swear to you, Dirty Dancing is on one of the Movie Channel channels EVERY SINGLE DAY if not EVERY SINGLE MOMENT. It’s insane. Not that I’m necessarily complaining, of course, as I love Dirty Dancing and will pretty much stop what I’m doing to watch it, at least for a few minutes. (Yet another reason why I never seem to get anything done these days. When in doubt, blame Patrick Swayze, is what I say.) But as I sit watching it, I always wonder who else is getting sucked in at that same exact moment. I mean, they must do market research, right, in deciding what movies to show the most. So there has to be a reason they pick Dirty Dancing and not something else. So maybe there is a contingent of new moms about my age, home during the day, somewhat wistful for cheesy 80’s nostalgia, and I’m not alone? God, I hope so. Because if not, then I’m even more pathetic than I think. Which is, well, pretty pathetic. Sigh.
Finally, it’s going to be eighty degrees here today. Yes, you read that right. 80. I mean, what is that all about? I had to stop in the middle of putting up my Christmas tree last night to put on the fan, it was so warm inside. Not exactly chestnuts roasting on an open fire kind of weather (unless you want a bad case of the sweats). My husband, who hates the cold, is overjoyed, but to me it just seems weird. Is it global warming? Or maybe just the combined heat of Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, building up over many showings of Dirty Dancing? Hmmm….
