Happy Hump Day!
Tracy posted the Belgium poster before I could, so you get this lovely instead.
It's been a pretty good week. My credentials finally came in at my new contract - yay! I have been working my tail off this week, and I think I'm just going to have to get more sleep. I can't keep up with the job demands without a bit more functioning attention. I haven't exercised since Sunday or Saturday, but I will tonight. Gotta keep my nose to the grind! That, and my other big task: locate my BD1 ticket stub and see if I can still get a coupon for the DVD. I'm going to encourage hubby boy to get it for me for Valentine's Day.
I got this from Twitter this morning: an article about travel tips for drinkers
, including international travelers (hint, hint). I don't think I have ever drunk while flying, mostly because of the cost of drinks, but I may try this the next time I fly without kids (fingers crossed for Chicago).Susie - Happy 2nd Lexiversary!
You are a wonderful person to have around, and I am blessed to know you. I'm glad you are recovering and able to get out and about a bit.Amy and Ginnie and Jaclyn and Susie and Tonise and Tracy
- Thank you for your kind wishes for me in the Canon Tour round! I was never really thinking I would win, just looking for lots of good honest feedback, and based on that so far, I think that at least I don't suck.Amy
- It sounds like you got the 1930s translation of Bel Ami, which I found a struggle, but still worth it. If you have a department store within driving distance there, they may have someone there who can fit bras professionally. This is totally worth the effort and cost in education alone. Take care of them, they'll take care of you ... well you know what I mean.Caryn
- I'm sorry about the FFn viruses getting you! I usually read on my mobile except to post reviews, maybe that's why my phone has been working slow lately. Definitely very anxious to see Bel Ami and if Rob/Kris will show for the Oscars. That new poster with the red background is definitely the swoony best so far for me! I noticed you and Songbird talking about how handsome Matthew Lewis suddenly became, because I remember - he kind of fit the pudgy little boy look at first but boy did he grow out of that. I can totally see him as a romantic lead. Christina
- TY for the Remember Me pix, Rob does look heavenly as the brooding student.Ginnie
- Praying for things to get better for you and your hubs. We're here for you, babe. I finally clicked your Edward t-shirt link when it wasn't overloaded with traffic ... whoa ... even non-demonstrative me would wear it for HHCon ... in a women's XL. Oh well.Jaclyn
- I love all your wedding talk! Your "hen night" (sometimes Americans call it a bachelorette party) dress looks awesome. My flowers were white roses, white carnations, and blue irises. I remember being not thrilled about the carnations, but they were a budget compromise. The table centerpieces were candles in glass holders atop circular mirror tiles, with the candles surrounded by the flowers. I was very happy with the irises. But to tell you the truth, I had to look at pix to remember what my flowers were - mostly from the day I remember being really nervous finally, barely saving myself from tripping over my dress, and being really happy. Flowers, dress ... nice, but background in my memories. Having the right shoes was probably a big part of the happiness, though. I picked low heeled work shoes that I already owned and had broken in, ones that were designed to be comfy. White sneakers sound good too! Just as exciting that you got tickets to the film fest for Bel Ami! I'm so jealous! Take lots of pictures!JennJenn
- Hi! I'm Brenda, working (outside-the-home) mother of 4 in Arizona. I've been Lexing for a year and at the HH for, oh, more than half a year I think. I look forward to seeing you around!Lynne
- Big house sympathies for you. It is very trying to own your home ... just better than the alternative, at least for a family. Glad I could help out with baking terms
I think that sounds like a very positive comment from your boss-maybe-publisher, when anyone who reads as much she must feels excited to read something, that's gotta be good!Marielle
- TY for the pix of Kris in Paris, she looks great, huh! IKEA is great for bookcases. 4 bookcases full of books is a lot of books! I have winnowed down my collection many times over the years due to big moves all over the country, and my fiction collection is quite modest now - maybe one bookcase. Ha ha, that is my worry about Rob lurking on the HH too, sometimes I think we would be a comforting place for him to read and sometimes I think he would be traumatized by the adulation (not to mention the pix). Miserable weather you're having - please stay warm!Songbird
- I'm not even going to start thinking about Edward's buns, cinnamon or otherwise
Yes it was a kind of bizarre fragment of a dream, but I was in front of the TV, trying not to fall asleep, so ... I think it was influenced by the Disney channel, which my kids watch a lot. In the dream, the boy was an actor playing Rob and Kris' son. Wierd, but cool to me. I didn't know that bilinguality was a protection against dementia, but I can get how it might work. More reasons to learn more languages! Re: exercising; I recommend doing cardio daily over doing anything once every few days. Make it a real habit over the first couple months. As your endurance builds, you can substitute it for cardio without giving up days - like, cardio cardio cardio vacustep cardio cardio. Tracy
- I agree that that Bel Ami poster was photoshopped to blue up Rob's eyes, and totally unnecessary. But at least they were better than the Saga people. I think we all envy Kristen Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, and Uma Thurman in those scenes. I officially give you permission to give yourself permission to hope for attention from Rob!
A big wave and hug to everyone else!
EDIT: BelAmiFilm.com says that Robssessed says that an unnamed Sony person says that the US release of Bel Ami might be July 2012. Sad ... but not what I'd call reliable either. Still a waiting game. Congratulations, Europe, you're getting him first!
