Abby Normal

Bizzare day.

Morning: Wake up late and am so groggy that I walk smack into the door frame. Then I clonk down the block to work in 4 inch heels.

At work: One of the girls shows off her engagement ring, to which another one responds "Don't let that bind you, boo. Give it back". Afterwards I giggled for about 10 minutes. Don't be surprised if I say it to one of you these days. "Don't let that bind you, boo". Classic.

Lunch: I walk home, still sleepy and take off my clothes and crawl into bed for a quick nap. Wake up twenty minutes later, cranky and hot.

Afternoon: Blaugh. I got some post it notes. Rockin.

After work: I find a birthday package from my yankee girlfriends and it gives me the energy to dance around in my underwear to Stevie Wonder (still hot as balls, Alabama). Then I'm totally caught by my neighbors standing outside. Blinds down next time, I think.

I saw the trailer for Jennifer's Body. Oh, Diablo Cody. More overly clever "teenage" wordplay? Meh. And Megan Fox? Honey, she's a quilt.
HOWEVER. There are still several movies I cannot wait wait WAIT to see. Such as:
Harry Potter (duh)
Taking Woodstock
Away We Go
Where the Wild Things Are
UP again and again
500 Days of Summer
Funny People
Julie and Julia
Paper Hearts
The Invention of Lying
Okay, lets talk about the new musical movie, Nine for a second. I was a bit hesitant, however my mother judged the show at a competition this summer and said it was quit excellent. And the film has a stellar cast. Daniel Day Lewis. Penelope Cruz. Judi Dench. Sophia Loren. I could do without Kate Hudson, but Sophia Loren? Man, I would smooch her like a mule eating an apple! Which is probably the only way to do it, I mean, she's pretty old. But still. Oh, and Marion Cotillard? I am praying that I will be her when I grow up.

I saw a production of Nine last night at the theatre where I'm directing OTT. It's an interesting show, I think (and I wouldn't say this about many musicals) it's better suited for the medium of film than for the stage. The music is amazing, the film will be good. Don't forget it's Rob Marshall.

PS Congrats on the post-it notes.

I like your list - mine's very similar. I got a chance to see a bit of 500 Days of Summer and now I can't wait to see the rest.
