One Last Weekend.

On Tuesday, I'll hit that age where I'm supposed to start lying.  I'll be 30.  Honestly, I'm not too fussed about it.  Not to get all overdramatic on you, but my 20's haven't been the easiest.  I've been through a lot, dealt with more than I ever imagined, and I'm here relatively unscathed on the other side.  I've got a really good feeling about 30.

So this is my last weekend with a 2 as the first number in my age.  However, it's supposed to be mega cold and possibly snow(!) so my plan is to hide out.  Since it's also Halloween weekend, I'm going to have a non-horror movie marathon!  Here's what I've come up with so far.

Hocus Pocus, one of my favorites forever and for all time.
Sanderson sistas!!

The Nightmare Before Christmas, the perfect Halloween/Christmas crossover.
"Oh, somewhere deep inside of these bones, an emptiness began to grow..."

Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, because it's hilarious and those bunnies are presh.
Bunnies!  Bunnies! It must be BUNNIES!

Any movies you love for Halloween?

Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs

I read the awesomely amazing Chuck Klosterman book featured in the title of this entry circa 2003, and I called my brother when I was on page 4 to say, "You must read this book."  The below quote was just posted on Facebook, and it is yet another reminder of why both this book and Chuck Klosterman are THE BEST (and why I loved JMU).

"There are no 'fashion don'ts' inside the Mainstreet Bar & Grill in downtown Harrisonburg.  You want to inexplicably wear a headband?  Fine.  You want to wear a FUBU sweatshirt with a baseball hat that features the Confederate flag?  No problem.  This is the kind of place where you see a college girl attempting to buy a $2.25 glass of Natural Light on tap with her credit card-- and have her card denied."
