What I mean when I say I’m an anglophile

I saw this post on Tumblr this morning and it made me think.  I think what the post author said is true for a good number of self-proclaimed anglophiles on Tumblr… they love Sherlock or Merlin or Doctor Who and think that’s the sum-total of British life and therefore, they...

Here’s how I see it

 Tonight, the husband and I went on a date night to go see “The Descendants” at the theater. We still may rent “Tree of Life” from redbox, but for the most part, I think we’ve now seen the movies we need to have seen in order to make our Oscar...

2011 Wrap-up: The Year That Blew

I’m not going to do the standard meme this year.  For one thing, I’m kind of sick of it and for another thing, it tends to ask things I don’t find important and leaves out other things that I do.  So I’m doing my own sort of wrap-up this year....

And then the drive-in lost our business

Longtime readers of this here blog are well aware of our love affair with the local drive-in.  It has been how we’ve seen movies for years now.  We even went before we “had” to, back when we just had Harry and could have easier procured a babysitter or taken him...

Babble and Blather

Gosh, is it Tuesday already?? What the heck?  Why am I losing large chunks of time all the time? And DON’T say it’s cuz I’m old.  Cuz then I’ll be forced to smack you over the head with my handbag, you young whippersnapper. *** So the sixth Harry Potter movie...
