Winter Waiting

I guess the wait-game is I'm waiting to hear what class percentile I'm in! I'll be pleased, however, to go class tomorrow and see who's happy and who's grim about their grades. Is it wrong to hope that the smug, boastful people have frowns on their faces? That the quiet and friendly have prevailed? That doesn't really seem in accord with my New Year's "work in progress" resolution, but one can't expect miracles, I suppose.

In other news, it's warm here again, which is good, as using the heater and the dryer at the same time flips my breaker and leaves me in the dark. I needed to wash some towels, so the front came in at just the right time.

Oh, and I saw Slumdog Millionaire and Revolutionary Road this weekend...both good, but neither were movies I would see again with any enthusiasm. Revolutionary Road especially was deeply depressing and soulless. Watching two hours of desperately unhappy people realizing how trapped they are in suburban mediocrity, and how they turn on each other, made me rethink and envision a Ms. Havisham-type future without shuddering.

Outfit: Dress: Spain; Cami: JCPenney; Tights: Target; Boots: Rocket Dog; Earrings: Express. Please, someone scold me into accessorizing!

That dress is gorgeous! I really want to see both of those movies, thanks for the reviews.

Here's to the quiet and friendly!!

Lovely outfit.

I like your movie reviews - I try to see all the Oscar movies prior to the awards. We're going to see "Gran Torino" this week, and hopefully "The Wrestler" soon.

I'm reading the book "Let the Right One In" right now.

Beautiful dress! And i don't think its wrong at all to hope that the quiet and friendly triumphed.

Sheila said...

Oh, and accesorize yourself, young lady!


Ally said...

Erica said...

Thanks all!

Sheila, how is "let the Right One In?" I bought one of the Charlene (sp?) Harris books you recommended but have not started it yet!
