We saw the movie Barney's Version, based on the award-winning novel of the same name by Mordecai Richler. It was warm and funny and random but at the heart of it was a very sweet love story. The cast consisted of numerous well-known actors and it was overall enjoyable. If for no other reason, I got to spend kid-free time with one of my girlfriends, enjoy a nice dinner, and an adult movie. A movie that had no animation or spontaneous singing. A movie where they said the s-word (gasp!) and the f-word (GASP!) and I was unafraid of any little ears around hearing. It was lovely, I must say.
The State is playing On the Waterfront in a few weeks, a movie I've never seen. What a neat place to go to see such a film. I may try and steal away again to go see it, even if by myself. And you know I'll be sitting there with the biggest coffee they offer.
Come to think of it, time away from home, even if just across town by myself, is kind of like a big cuppa coffee. It's comforting, sometimes refreshing, necessary, and no matter what the price, it's worth it. Always. I have never regretted any cuppa coffee I've ever bought and I've never regretted any time away from home I've ever spent.
By the way, how are we hanging in there with one hour less sleep?
