@Nicole Cliffe I'd love to see texts from Betsy-Tacy !
Did your mother finish your cat costume yet? The town talent pageant is in two days!
I'll meet you at the Chocolate House for a stroll to Little Syria. Don't let Katie know where we're going
Yes! This is one of my all time desert island movies!
I first saw it on late-night tv in junior or senior year and have coerced/forced friends/exes into watching it, as it's the scariest movie I've seen - Rosemary's loss of control over her body and life is terrifying. I read the book this summer, and this essay doesn't lie. The movie's dialogue is word-for-word, nearly verbatim to the novel. The movie also has the best character names (Terry Gionoffrio, Laura-Louise McBurney, Minnie Castevet, Lily Gardenia, Dr. Shand, etc) and I just love the Vidal Sassoon hairstyle that Rosemary gets. Adding this to my Xmas list now.
I'm reading The Dangerous Animals Club, by Stephen Tobolowsky. He's like the uncle you always wanted who is a great storyteller. The book is good so far, but is nearly a word-for-word transcript of his earliest podcasts.
Also eagerly waiting for The Twelve to load onto my kindle tomorrow. I raced through The Passage and plan to wake up early tomorrow am to begin reading its sequel.
I had no idea about her mother's passing earlier this year. That section of the profile was heartbreaking.
@olliegrace High five to another Hairpinner moving to Madison this year! I'm moving from DC ($550 for a room in a group house in a DC suburb) to Madison later this year. Looking for a room near the Capitol area and one bedrooms seem to average around $600-800ish there.
@amelia! is she a child of divorce from NYC? that would be too much of a coincidence!
@boysplz I'm rooting for Eureka, with her quizzical look and mussed-up hair. so sweet!
@redheadedandcrazy http://animal.discovery.com/tv/puppy-bowl/starting-lineup/starting-lineup-09.html be prepared for LOTS & LOTS of cuteness
I'm all about the Puppy Bowl and its kitty half time show.
My worst (that I can remember) was last month in an emergency room. After being rushed to the hospital for tuna poisoning, a nurse was touching my stomach to check that area. Rather than saying, "everything looks good/neutral/awful/etc," he said "that's a nice soft stomach." Thanks dude, don't think it's a compliment; that sounds more like a back-handed insult.
