    Okay so I just caught up on this all. And now I want to watch movies, only not by myself, but probably with you. The last movie I saw had Mandy Moore in it, and it was lame, I had to FF a screaming part because it was so annoying. I’m not really great at being brave when I pick out stuff. I think I’ll take the entire month of August off and come watch movies with you guys, okay? Me and Deana can sit on the couch with the chips and you can take up all the floor. 🙂
    Also, I never knew you admired Matt Allison, did I?

    Let’s do it, chica. I’m at least at interested in watching movies with you as I am in watching The Greatest TV Show Ever with you. Last night D & I finished watching the series for the umpteenth time. And I’ll gladly watch it from the floor.

    Of course I admire MA. I credit him with much of my unofficial education. He’s on a similar plane as Hopper.

  3. So glad for the Almodovar mentions. I’ve been trying to come up with a list also, but the idea of writing it down freaks me out. It’s too much commitment that I’m not ready for.
