I found this little box sign (and it is little – 2"x3") at a Barnes and Noble and couldn't resist buying it. I want a huge one for my front yard. It would be perfect because there are no decorations out front, and there won't be either.
It's not like I don't like the season. I do. I just don't like to decorate.
So, is the end of the world? Are you planning anything fun or interesting? Well, let me warn you. Do not watch the following movies. My husband and I did last night, and let me just say – what a waste of time!
"Hanna." My son asked for this movie last Christmas. My husband wanted to watch it, so we borrowed it. Starring Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana, and Cate Blanchett, it's one bizarre movie. Blurb: Raised by her father (Bana), an ex-CIA agent, in the wilds of Finland, Hanna's (Ronan) upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin. The turning point in her adolescence is a sharp one. Sent into the world by her father on a mission, Hanna journeys stealthily across Europe, eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative (Blanchett) with secrets of her own. As she nears her ultimate target, Hanna faces startling revelations about her existence. Now, based on this blurb, it sounds kind of interesting. It is not.
So, after we cheered the ending of this movie (the fact it was over, that is), I decided I wanted something more fun to watch. Well, I thought it would be fun.
"Love Happens." The cover on my copy stated it was a "Rare Hollywood Romance." That should have been my first hint to stay away. I bought this in the $5 bin at Wal*Mart. That should have been my second. Blurb: Jennifer Anniston and Aaron Eckhart star in the romantic drama "Love Happens." When self-help author Dr. Burke Ryan (Eckhart) arrives to
to teach a sold-out seminar, he unexpectedly meets florist Eloise Chandler ( ), the one person
who might be able to help him help himself. But will two people who may have
met the right person at exactly the wrong time be able to give love a chance?
If they can, they'll find that sometimes, when you least expect it, love
happens. This should have been titled "Death Happens." It
was one depressing movie. At the end, when the husband and I were in tears, I
started laughing. "We really know how to pick 'em," I said. He
cracked up with me (with tears in his eyes, no less). He said he wanted to
watch a western next. At least then he knew what to expect! Anniston
I sure hope this isn't the end of the world. I'd like to go out smiling. These movies didn't do that! Well, except for the cracking up at the end part. Ooh boy!
