We're watching It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

My dad loved that movie.

I, of course, hated it.  I don't like funny movies.  I would rather bawl my eyes out watching something sappy.  At 2 am.  In French.

 

ETA:  Booyah!

What about Hindi?  Lots of sappy Bollywood. I watched Devdas in college and by the end I was ugly sobbing.

I like pretty much everything but that. I prefer funny but I'm picky. I like adventure. We need to see the hobbit.

My favorite movie is Moulin Rouge and my second-favorite is Remember the Titans.

Your turn!

I've never actually watched anything Bollywood.

I've been re-watching movies that I'm familiar with in languages I'm trying to learn (Spanish and French).

I am not ready for tomorrow. I think I am losing my voice. Maybe God is telling me to keep my mouth shut for once!  I can’t volunteer for anything crazy if I can’t talk, right...

What about in Chinese? I just finished a series, but I'm debating watching it again without subtitles at all because I hated the ending. It was pretty sweet, though. Nothing makes me cry though.

Yeah, I prefer funny, adventure, or action.

I don't have a favorite. I decided a long time ago that Lion King was my favorite, and I just never updated my favorites list.

I don't know if I have a favorite movie.  It very much depends on my mood.

And actually, I don’t like movies a whole lot. I get too invested. I go sometimes to make it a family event.  I did watch a lot on vacation - Harry Potter, LOTR, Star Wars. Something a little different (not for kids) was Yes Man. I like some romantic comedy occasionally (you’ve got mail, when Harry met sally), but not a lot. 

More than you wanted to know.

I'm not much of a movie watcher. I can't actually decide whether they are overstimulating or boring or both in some odd way because they don't leave enough room for my own thoughts inside my head--in any case I can only really stand to watch when I am sick.

Yes, this is the thing. I have favorites that I also think are objectively great movies like LOTR, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Much Ado ABout Nothing, but they get me so emotional I don’t watch them as often as cheesy favorites like Oscar, Galaxy Quest, Austenland, Spaceballs, Salaam E Ishq, because those are movies I feel like watching more often.

Good morning, croaked the toad. I need to get hopping and write my wrists off. I am 5000 away from hitting 20K on two novels in a month, and I am going to get it today! I am using June as my marathon writing month to complete one series and get ready to hop back in another before I write the third book in the trilogy that is on submission right now. My agent now knows that I have another series almost complete in first draft form, and so I'm supposed to revise the first book of that in July for her to read and critique, so I can get it ready to go on submission sometime this fall if possible. And then I have a standalone book to write in November. Plus other projects to bring to a boil. The boys head out of town with grandparents, so I'm looking forward to a solid week of writing without requests to go to the lake, river, etc, although I'll probably go by myself to relax a time or two! Have a lake trip planned for this afternoon, so I need to bury myself in words and burrow until I get my 5000 on the page.

I don't know if it's technically Bollywood, but Bride & Prejudice is a great movie, IMO.  Sappy, sweet and a musical.

Me too.  I like to rewatch old favorites.   I really prefer reading to watching movies or tv.  Dh loves to choose random movies from Amazon, Netflix or Hulu.  He's found some decent/okay ones but some of them are truly awful.

So, I gave up the Intermittent Fasting for the weekend and in fact have been eating lots and lots of junk.  And I'm down 4 pounds.   I know it's going to catch up to me but this weight loss thing is so darn frustrating.  I need to figure out something to do about it.   I'm not as sedentary as I used to be (on my feet all day, walking around), but I need to do some stretching, some sustained cardio, and mainly, watch what I eat.  Usually that's easier for me in the summer but I've been gaining not losing weight.

Good Morning!!!!!

COFFEE!!!!!~D

Sunday!!!

Promotion Day. All the kids move up to their next grade in Sunday School. Both the high school class and jr. high classes (I have one kid stayed hg in jr. high and one promoting to high school) asked parents to bring food for breakfasts, so, I made sticky buns.🙄 I actually made them last night, but I had to get up early to take them out of the fridge to warm up and rise a little so I could bake them. Why can’t I just go get donuts like other moms?

It’s heating up again today. Our little comfortable reprieve is over.😩🔥🔥☀️☀️

Same here, but I tend to enjoy watching movies I like over and over again. That drives everyone crazy, but I don’t care. I’ll just hole up in my room with my iPad and enjoy myself. I like rom-coms a lot. Those are ones that I will tend to watch more than once -When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, While You Were Sleeping. I love Steel Magnolias, too, though not a rom-com. I enjoy me a good action flick, but those I don’t tend to watch over and over again.

We’re home. My sticky buns were a hit. I made a double batch and there were only 3 left on the jr. high platter and there aren’t many kids in that class. The platter I sent to the high school class was practically licked clean.

Good morning!  Uh, afternoon!

I didn't get a sticky bun.  :sad:

I don't like to rewatch movies, so the ones I do want to see again must be my favorites.  One movie I have wanted to rewatch for years is Another Stakeout.  I think I saw it 25 years ago, so I might hate it now.

Played in early and late services this morning.  Dd12 played in the early service but she got wheezy so I said she should sit out the next one.  Lunch is IP sweet potatoes, leftover spaghetti, and lettuce salad.  I have some things, mostly online stuff and planning to take care of today, but otherwise not much going on.

Coffee!

I'm not that upset. She has lots of power in Ohio that she used against me. Often by saying I would be somewhere knowing I wasn't going to tell the 85 year old I wasnt after she was so excited, but she would also get stores to not serve me etc. She has no power here. Because of that I don't think she'll come.

Slache, you need to start telling her about how awful it is there, and you are probably going to move in 6 months.

They are so juicy that dh refuses to eat them like a normal person and cuts them up with knife and eats with a spoon.

This week is my last week of classes for the year.   Looks like I'll have a week off, do 2 days of camp the following week, then on vacation, then a week of camp with 4-5 students.    Lots of time to get things done.
