Blue Ridge, 2013

Morning mist over Blue Ridge.

Not a whole lot to say about the trip to Blue Ridge. It’s the third year in a row that I’ve been (thanks, Robin!) and I always laugh a lot, and sometimes there is crying, but the good kind, and well, there’s a lot of vodka. We go through a good bit of firewood, and […]

Nim’s Island

For some reason my kids barely make a peep during this whole movie. I mean, I know why I don’t make a peep: Two words- Gerard Butler. But what is it that they love about it? Anyway, this is how they looked when I came upstairs to see why it was so quiet.

R.I.P. John Hughes

Not much to say that hasn’t already been said all over the internet. But this guy really got what it was like to be a teenager, and he made all the horrible stuff that goes along with the teen years seem interesting, and funny, and like it was normal. He got us. If you haven’t […]

Possibly Not the Domestic Goddess

. . . that I think I am. I was cooking dinner last night (ahem, mac and cheese) and was boiling the macaroni, when the pot boiled over. (Or, “balled” over, as my Daddy with his Savannah accent would say. He also says “aygs” for eggs, “all” for oil, and “tin fall” for tin foil.) […]

Zombies in Decatur

Okay, I didn’t actually see any zombies. I was in Decatur, going to the library there to find a particular reference book for nerd purposes. Turned down Sycamore, (I think) and started seeing “Zombie Land” everywhere on director’s chairs. Big cameras I had seen on Ponce began to make more sense. Unfortunately, I was driving […]

A Few Things

Talking about it makes it better. I can’t believe I have a niece who is one year old. Todd has one week to purchase and install my new UGA flag. Sex withheld until installation complete. My favorite movie of all time is most definitely The Black Stallion. And it holds up well to time, too. […]

This Pretty Much Sums It Up

I’m the kind of girl who has a leftover dinner of mac and cheese, okra and blackeyed peas, green beans, one can artichoke hearts, and a glass of Chardonnay. Dessert? One bigass heaping spoon of crunchy peanut butter in a bowl, drizzled with honey and a splash of Kahlua, and a squirt of canned whipped […]

Wow. Warner. Makes Me a Little Wacky.

First of all, Mom seems to be doing pretty well. Visited her in the hospital (hospy, to family in the know) and she seems better than before. Still hoping they will keep her a while longer, as she is precious cargo, and I would be afraid that Dad and I would screw things up here […]

Please Do Not Break My Heart, Filmmaker

A while ago, I read an article in Oprah’s magazine, O, about an actress’ favorite novels. It is a recurring article in the magazine, and my favorite part of a magazine that I actually think is really great. They ask famous people about their ten favorite books, and the people list them, and also tell […]
