My darlings, I first posted this the day after the Academy Awards in February, and I’m trotting it out again because; a) it’s possibly my favorite movie of all time, and b) I’m still working with my editor on the manuscript… and I feel certain he would have something to say about that semi-colon I just typed in 😉 .
It’s the day after… And, if you’re reading this any time before noon Pacific Standard Time I’m probably burrowed under my blankets and flat out sound asleep. About a month ago I finally figured out how to put film clips up on the blog (look, I’m middle-aged so cut me some slack, and yes I know the kid could do it in about 15 seconds, but he’s busy at school), the point is this is sooooo much more entertaining than anything I could come up with – so have some fun and watch.
I’m not a shopper, and considering who raised me that must have come as quite a shock. My mother, the erstwhile retail ninja, also was responsible for sitting me down when I was young and screening “The Palm Beach Story” – still one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. If only shopping was like this… effortless, indulgent, adventurous, and full of surprises.
