Yikes, how can it possibly be that each week I can come up with so much scattered jibberish? Visit Mrs. 4444 to check out other Friday Fragments.
- I recently purchased a ticket to go see the five Oscar nominated best movies all in one day. A small group of us are going. The first movie starts at 10:00AM and the last one starts at 9:45PM. I have already seen three of the movies. I am definitely looking forward to seeing The Reader, which I haven't seen yet.
- My husband and I went to see Gran Torino with Clint Eastwood. Honestly, I think that is the best movie I have seen of my recent movie going frenzy. It was nothing like I thought it would be and I really would like to see it again. So many good lessons in that one.
- I know there is a recession, but I do believe most people in my neck of the woods are in denial with me. MG and I went out to dinner prior to seeing Gran Torino. We ate at Maggiano's - an Italian chain restaurant (We usually avoid chains, but it was at the mall and then we could walk to the movie. We also had a gift card.). We got there about 5:45 on a Saturday and there was a two hour and 15 minute wait. HELLO? I thought people were cutting back? Apparently not, or maybe they are no longer dining at $100+ restaurants and have cut back to the $50 restaurants.
