I got my husband a gift card to get a massage at a salon for men run by hot chicks. Yep, I'm just THAT confident in myself. Or delusional. One or the other. Either way, I'm happy.
It's been weird not going to work for the past few days because of snow. I'd rather have my snow days spread out since we only get so many before they have to start extending the school year into the summer. Growing up in the Middle East, we had "rain days" when the inadequate drainage of the school building meant the place was flooded for a while. I feel bad for today's kids because I understand improvements have been made so that doesn't happen anymore.
*** Possible Spoiler for The Purple Rose of Cairo ***
Since my husband was working today, I watched The Purple Rose of Cairo which has been sitting on my TiVo forever. Perhaps if I'd known it was about the fact that wish fulfillment is but a dream and escapism is only as long as reality permits, I may not have chosen to watch it on a day that's supposed to inspire romance, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It struck me as a movie that would be just as good as a short since the message was pretty to the point and the subplots were more like cardboard cutouts set in the background to add a little more depth. I must admit, it reminded me of the fantasy I used to have about some intense, charismatic, witty, intelligent guy staring longingly at me across a crowded room and falling instantly in love with me before he even knew my name... However, he doesn't go on to do that thing all guys in movies in the thirties and forties did to their women- grab me by the shoulders and shake me saying something along the lines of "I love ya, I tell you, I didn't wanna... You hear me? I LOVE ya!" then mash his mouth against mine at the risk of knocking my teeth out, slipping a disk in my back, and crushing my skull in his grip. Yeah. I'm funny like that.
I'm still occasionally adding movies to my list, so feel free to make recommendations/suggestions/comments.
May the night bring you dreams of romance.
