Big day?

"The cock is crowing
The stream is flowing
The small birds twitter.
The lake doth glitter...
There's joy in the mountains;
There's life in the fountains;
Small clouds are sailing,
Blue sky prevailing."
- Wordsworth
It's a nice day out today. My bird is whistling the the theme from the Andy Griffith Show in the next room. My coffee tastes pretty good. The sky is looking clear and blue. I think I will hop in my car, make the trek into Milwaukee, grab a bite and maybe catch a movie.

I really want to see Two Days In Paris. It's only in limited release, so I have to go into Milwaukee to see it. But, since I'm a sucker for the chick flicks and I love Paris and Julie Delpy, I guess I can jump through a few hoops to see this one. It looks like it will be a lot like the Before Sunrise/Before Sunset movies that Richard Linklater did. Delpy co-starred in both of those. This is her directing debut and it looks like she shares some movie making sensibilities with Linklater. I was also kind of interested to find that her parents in the movie are really her parents. I'll let you know...

Now...if I can just get moving, maybe I can get this day going.

Don't keep us waiting too long for the review...


Good on you, for getting off your ass.

It turned out to be a remarkably good day. Movie was good, Milwaukee was good, weather was great. More later...methinks.

Pass those good vibes my way, will you?

SME said...

Hmm. Don't know about that one. That Goldberg fella doesn't have a lotta charisma, so to pair him with Delpy could be a mistake, IMO.

Shawn said...

Tmom - you can have all the good vibes you want! Hope they help.

SME - That was my feeling too...and as it turned out we were both sort of right. It wasn't that he was awful so much as he lacked much flavor.
