no sunshine

By Tara Zandra | March 16, 2007

So we watched “Little Miss Sunshine” Tuesday night. Eh, I wasn’t feeling it. I didn’t hate it and don’t feel like it was an utter waste of my time, but it didn’t entertain me and that’s all I look for in a movie. Next up, “The DaVinci Code.” Chris read the book and loved it. I never read it because it’s not my style, but the movie interests me so I’m really looking forward to it. Usually I would rather read the book but I think DaVinci Code was too popular so I passed. Hence why I’ve never read or watched a single Harry Potter book/movie. I found out that the play Wicked is based on a book so I want to read that now. The musical I don’t really care about, but the story seems so interesting, I think the book will be enjoyable. The author has a few other revisionist fairy tales that I’d like to read as well.

Yesterday was a full day. It wouldn’t have seemed as much so if I had gotten ready in a timely manner or if I hadn’t let Tabitha sleep in (sure enough, she couldn’t go to sleep last night. I should have woke her in the morning). The morning was just so dreary I had no motivation which is why we had such a late start. Then it was grocery store, home for lunch, book club, home to make and eat dinner, and out to Girl Scouts. That was 10:30am-7:00pm and I felt like I never wasn’t doing something. By the time I got home and put both kids to bed I was exhausted and ready for bed myself but Chris and I hadn’t spent any time together so we stayed up and watched two episodes of 30 Rock before going to bed. Even then we stayed awake and talked awhile before falling asleep. Nice way to end the day :)

This morning isn’t nearly as foggy and we have somewhere to be so I think we’ll be ready for the day on time.

    Wicked is the sort of book you either love or hate. I absolutely loved it and have read it more than once (and seen the musical), but I’ve talked to a few people who didn’t feel the same way. You should definitely be prepared for a few, ahem, *adult* scenes — that really seems to throw readers who are expecting something along the lines of “The Wizard of Oz.”

    As for the DaVinci Code, I thought the first 45 minutes or so were both rushed and boring — you wouldn’t think those two things could go together, but they did — but it got better after that. Hang in there and you’ll probably enjoy it.

    I haven’t seen Little Miss Sunshine yet. Most of those Oscar nominees were movies we hadn’t seen.
    I enjoyed The DaVinci Code, haven’t read the book yet though.
