slumdog millionaire


d-a-t-e. that spells date & clint & i got one tonight! i know, it's totally a christmas miracle :) dana & i are trading my crafty help for her babysitting skills - awesome deal. anyway, clint heard about this movie & surprised me, saying "trust me, i'll pick out the movie", which really did take a leap of faith, as this is the same guy that talked me into "king kong" & "there will be blood" - the two ABSOLUTE WORST movies of all time!!!!!!!!!
part of the reason i let him pick was because it meant i had to do no planning, which was a further blessing to me (because you know my brain is already full with crafty christmas!) & i'm so glad i did because it was a fabulous pick. really.
it's part india story, part love story, a little about human trafficing... & i'll leave it @ that. i'm just saying if you want a non-hollywood cheese-ola or shoot em up kinda flick that will really make you think & consider your own story & your own place in this world - this one's for you!
oh, & if you don't have a babysitter lined up anytime soon, we just saw 2 really great indies from blockbusters -
fugitive pieces (BEAUTIFUL story of redemption)
diving bell & the butterfly (again, redemption - must be a theme in our lives...hmmm)
i highly recommend these if you're into indy stuff. i must put a disclaimer here, though - these do have some "words" & a tiny bit of n*dity, but not in a hollywood sense @ all. email if you want more info.
do tell me if you see any of these - i want to hear your thoughts!
oh & i didn't get those banana breads baked! i'm sure you were on the edge of your seat wondering! (thank you to my fav bakery for having something similar for $4 each!) & i noticed that i wrote on friday that i was "busy", but the "good kind of busy" - hahaha. what was i thinking? i did have a busy-breakdown yesterday - oops!
happy christmas week, guys!

kelly, I loved seeing your Christmas crafts in your last post...you could work for pottery barn...because that is my fav thing about them is seeing how they decorate with cute stuff. I can't wait until Tuesday night. Maybe we can all fit in the odyssey?? I have been thinking about seats and I think we can do it!
