6 Things I Love Today (and Yesterday)- Long mornings, Suffragists, Like Crazy shower, and my Commitment to Sleep

by - Saturday, November 17, 2012

1. The Boy's rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" in which the lyrics are mostly about Anne Hathaway- neither of us know much of anything about Les Mis, but man those people are committed to emoting.

2. The Wedding in Wreck it Ralph- This is pretty much the only part of the movie I found genuinely funny (though the whole thing was perfectly pleasant and amiable). All in all, the movie felt like people came up with a really awesome idea, came up with a very sweet (if not mostly recycled) story, and then left someone far less capable to write the dialogue. But the wedding was hilarious both times. Genuinely super super funny.

3. The weird straight lift of the Mad Hatter into Wreck it Ralph- So weird. I don't get it, but it was completely distracting in a kind of interesting way as the movie went on.

4. This. A little late, but you have to love those suffragists.
5. The final scene of Like Crazy- The movie was a mixed bag, and you spend a lot of it wondering why the two people can't get over themselves, but the last scene is lovely in its willingness to say you don't get relationship do-overs and that you can't remake decisions once you know the outcome. It is sad and hopeful at once in a nice, silent, pretty honest way.
6. That I keep falling asleep in the early evening like an old woman- the Boy chalks it up to "light depression" but at the very least, I always feel rested in the morning. I think it may just be that I like being in bed better than anywhere else, and sleeping is a valid excuse to hang out there. As I type this, I realize it does sound like slight depression. Ha! Too funny. Anyway, it makes me feel that much more like an old woman.
