Vickie, you are a wonder – Too, too many of my favourite things and I of course have to include you in that! (a terrible flirt with you, Moi?! No, merely honest, darling, merely honest, you are entirely too irresistible ;)) I love that scene. So cute.
I thought you’d like that. Such a frolic, that movie — and let’s hear it for Cary, skating with such grace and skill at 48! It gives us something to aspire to 😉
I can’t skate like that *now*! I think my version of that scene ends with me scooting elegantly along the ice… nose first. He never seemed to lose his agility and elan. I’m aspiring, I’m aspiring…
I won’t tell you what I would be scooting elegantly along on, but it wouldn’t be my nose.
I just saw this movie again last week. I was obsessed with it as a kid.
I think it was the last screwball comedy ever made, no, wait, I think that would be “What’s Up Doc”… I love them both. Happy Valentine’s day! I hope the Chef is making you something delicious.
No, no he is not. It is the second busiest restaurant day of the year! He has been at work since 9, no end in sight…Plus, neither of us likes the holiday! I’m drinking some Scotch and cuddling with the dogs. I hope you have a lovely V-Day, though.
That’s right! What’s the first busiest day? Scotch and a cuddle with the dogs sounds great – we are contemplating ordering a pizza. How romantic is that?
Pizza is the food of the gods! Sounds good to me. I have no complaints about hanging with the doggies. They are sweethearts.
The answer to your question is: Mother’s Day!
Thank you! I would have guessed New Year’s!
New Year’s is next. It makes one really sick of holidays. People are absurdly selfish and rude on these supposedly important dates.
Performance anxiety? I’m not saying it’s an excuse but people get so damn twitchy when expectations are involved. And, who expects more from you, your mother or your sweetheart — ach, it makes my head reel. I like our solution best, a night in. And, I hope a restful day for the Chef tomorrow.
Staying in is a great choice! Performance anxiety or not, there is no excuse for the type of behaviour he witnesses every single holiday. Unfortunately, he won’t be able to relax until next week. Because V-Day is on a Thursday, it will extend through the weekend.
I will wish for a snow storm for Columbus – not too bad – just enough to keep people in over the weekend 😉
Cincinnati, but I like how you think! 🙂
See what I miss when I am at work!!! I love this movie…that car ride with Marilyn was so much fun!!
“Mr. Oxley say’s I should watch my punctuation so I try to get here every morning by nine.”
Turns out Mr. Oxley was a prophet…
I love, love, love this movie!
Ms L Thank you
Don’t they just look harmonious and gripped by unbridled happiness!?! Not something that could be said of either of them often.
The Perfumed Dandy
Very rarely! But, what they were extraordinarily good at was translating joy and style on screen…
