What did I tell you?

A last second loss—literally!—in overtime. Heartbreaking. But man, what a game. My husband was there and he said there’s no way seeing on TV could even begin to capture the total sense of chaos, all two hours or so of it. At any rate, I was up WAY past my bedtime, but it was so worth it.

In other news, I will show my age and also what a total nerd I am by telling you that one of my favorite movies from when I was younger, Best Friends, is now out on DVD. I LOVE this movie. Goldie Hawn, Burt Reynolds (yes, this is what I mean by dating myself, some of you probably weren’t even born when this movie came out) sort of cheesy, altogether enjoyable. It was one of those movies that was on HBO all the time when we very first got cable (again, dating myself: life without cable? are you kidding? yes, it did happen, once).

Yesterday I told my husband how excited I was about this, and he rolled his eyes. I said, “I love that movie!” and he said, “That movie is terrible.” So I go to my standard defensive response whenever my taste in movies/music/whatever is questioned in this house (i.e. pretty often) and say, “You don’t even know which one I’m talking about.” At which point, he commences with a long, detailed description of the entire movie, citing specific scenes, lines, props: it was like an entry off IMDB, or something. Truly. All I could do was stand there and say, “Oh. Well, I still like it, anyway.”


I do think I’ll be hitting Best Buy today. I haven’t bought a DVD in ages and it’s gloomy and February. You gotta have a few thrills, right? Like a great basketball game. Or a great (depending on your opinion) movie. A great anything, in fact, would be great right about now….

have a good day everyone!
