It's not the power of the curse, it's the power you give the curse

Right. So it's been a while and I intend to make up for lost blogging time over the course of the next few days. For now, I thought I'd do a quick movie review. Jer is currently in Bend with his family and I have to work Tues & Weds, after which I will rush to his side to enjoy some of my fav central OR activities. Until then, I am enjoying my watch-whatever-movie-I-want time. I make a point of doing that whenever he's away (don't let me forget to tell you about my experience with 'Amelie' when he went on his last trip). Tonight, it was Penelope. I thought it was a darling movie and my favorite parts are outlined below:

*The scene where Penelope is trying to guess which instrument Max plays and he's butchering 'You Are My Sunshine' ...adorable
*The scene where Penelope sees the outside world for the first time. And the way she sends postcards from everywhere she goes even though the places are nowhere exceptional ...I want to remember to stop and see the world for the first time sometimes, to enjoy every little big thing.
*Hooray for the set and costume designers ...I would love to live in Penelope's room, at least for a little while.

If you aren't familiar with the scenes I'm referring to, see the movie. I recommend it. Now it's real late and I'm real tired. More posts tomorrow. Promise.
