well, it’s safe to say that this so-called Spring and I are officially in a fight. I guess it’s a good thing that I spent too much time cooking for this impending unleavened bready Jewish holiday to weatherize my closets because there is snow. LOTS OF SNOW. think: snow storm. think: winter boots. think: expected 6 inches. i think a snowstorm should automatically give me a get out of jail free card. i mean, do you even know what passover commemorates? oh yes, the epic saga of Moses leading the Jews to freedom from slavery through the desert. If this had happened in Toronto, that old Charlton Heston joint would have been a VERY different movie…
speaking of movies, I partook in a much needed girls’ night out on Saturday night (We also partook in unlimited free refills and were able to stretch one large popcorn across five people. hey, if you are going to charge me $8 for a diet coke, i’m going to refill my popcorn 4 times. it’s that simple) to see I Love You, Man. and, well, i loved it, man. As a lifelong member of the Freaks and Geeks fan club, i shouldn’t have to tell you how much i love anything Judd Apatow. and, seriously, any movie that quotes my beloved Andre the Giant’s classic princess bride action… “anybody want a peanut?” ACES. my only beef?
i’m wondering if there was some sort of water softener problem going on here? because the hair? the hair! she was distracting.
also distracting? the Wolverine preview, because seriously, looks amazing.
and, confession: HUGH JACKMAN? I FINALLY SEE THE APPEAL. i have always thought he was a little too, erm, manly for me. In my mind he was wolverine, even when he wasn’t actually playing wolverine, yanno? but, i don’t know, maybe it was the Oscars (when i wanted to lock him right up in my pocket, he was my bar of chocolate…). the one thing i DO know, however, is that it’s not because of the recession. oh yes, did you read about that study…the one that say that hard times make women want hairy men? i swear to god, i am not making this shit up.
one last thing i wanted to tell you, because since i first posted, way back in February, about Miss Roxee being sick, and through all my facebook statuses and tweets, you all have been so supportive. Sadly, Roxee lost her battle with lymphoma this week. She was such a huge part of our lives, our children’s lives. She was the first dog we’ve ever loved, and she taught us all how to eat an apple like a lady.
we will miss you, roxee girl.
