Cold Comfort

Oooh, Chicago is truly a windy city this week and people are NOT happy. I saw a litany of complaints on twitter (too cold! too rainy! too fallish!) and all I could think was, bring it on! I love cold weather, rainy days, wind whipping against the windows--I love it all (OK, maybe not power outages and moldy leaves, but almost all.)

Maybe I love everything that accompanies inclement weather. Sweaters. Wellies. Movie days. Especially movie days. Sometimes I like nothing better than to curl up on my sofa with a mug of tea, remote in hand, ready to catch some classic on an obscure cable channel--because it's one thing to have a film on DVD and quite another to catch a favorite by luck when scrolling through the guide.

If one of the following pop up on a random rainy Sunday, I stop everything, curl up with a blankie and watch:

1. Four Weddings and a Funeral

2. Pretty in Pink

3. Bridget Jones's Diary

4. Hannah and Her Sisters

5. Charade

How about you guys? What are your comfort movies?


  1. Tough. I'm not so much about finding the movies, but finding the marathons. Law and Order is preferable. I can spend an entire day in bed watching murders and such.

  2. I don't know that many of the movies I love are on TV yet. But one movie I can watch over and over again is Pride and Prejudice. I just love that movie. I don't even know how many times I've watched it at this point.

  3. Miz J--I think I'm the only person on the planet who has never seen an episode of Law & Order. What's wrong with me?

    Kathy! Which version do you like? The BBC or the one with (swoon) Angus McFayden?

  4. Pride and Prejudice (BBC--most definitely), The Breakfast Club, Reckless, and Underworld (just the first one) are my comfort movies.
