Freaky Friday

1. Inception--I have only a vague notion of what this is about, but I haven't seen people this excited about a movie in a long time. I think it's going on my to-do list this weekend. I mean, who can resist Leo, right?

2. Book Clubs: I joined one a while back and it's been an amazing. The ladies of Baby's Got Paperback really put 100% into the experience, and as a result the discussions are smart, thorough, and highly entertaining. And the food is pretty great, too!

3. Friday Night Lights--I have no interest in football whatsoever, but I do love a good one-hour drama. I rented the first season of this show from Netflix on the recommendation of a friend. Do you guys watch?

4. Thank God for camp counselors, those rare people who manage to be cheerful when confronted with incessant whining, killer bugs, and temps in the high 90s. I bow before them.

5. I just got an invite to a screening of Who Does She Think She Is?, a documentary about five female artists who struggle to balance their creative lives with their roles as mothers and wives (We all know how unbalanced it can make us, right?). Check it out if it's playing in your city. Here is a review from the NY Times for the curious.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

  3. Inception is like a high concept heist movie, and it's really good. I'm probably going for a second viewing this weekend. And yes, hot men in suits. :)

    Never seen Friday Night Lights, but I keep hearing such good things about it.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  5. I'm seeing INCEPTION this weekend too! It really has been a while since a movie was talked about like this. What was the last one? JUNO? I remember it getting some talk, but not this widespread....SLUM DOG MILLIONAIRE? Hm...I'd have to think on it.

    *love* the name of your book club!

  6. Saw Inception on Saturday! Very good. It is one of those movies you have to watch a couple of times.

    My husband LOVES Friday Night Lights. He's such a girl about it.
