I miss movies.

Does anyone else out there feel completely deprived of films? You know, the good ones, like The Cider House Rules, An Affair to Remember, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Princess Bride, Breakfast at Tiffany's?

College life really takes time out from good couch-potatoing. You know, those nights when the only thing on the agenda is a date with Cary Grant, Hugh Grant, Brad Pitt, Colin Farrell, Ralph Fiennes(from Shakespeare in Love) and a big tub of over-buttered popcorn.

One at a time of course...SHHHHH! Because you are in the movie. You are the gal of his dreams, the strong-willed heroine. Of course, you have your own agenda, but once yours and his intertwine everything will turn out well in the end because you are together.

Am I romatically disillusioned or what? I need a good movie. Any suggestions?

If you like old movies, try Arsenic and Old Lace, The Young Philadelphians, A Place in the Sun...clearly, to many of my formative years were spent with the classic movie channels. ;)

Personally I'd have to suggest Casablanca. There is a copy in the library, if I don't get to it first.

As a new fan of your blog through the blog recommendation of others, I shall give my two cents about movies. For the romantically disillusioned and literature obsessed, check out Dream for an Insomniac. Somewhat difficult to find; I bought a copy at Wal*Mart for like $5. But if you do find it, you will not be disappointed.

Ben Hur. Definitely.

I feel your pain, again, if you like classics, take the time to invest in Gone With The Wind. I know its long, but it is so beyond worth it. :)

Amanda, this is off-topic, but I really think that you need to consider some creative writing assignments. I love your flowery (is that what I mean to call it?) way of illustrating things with your vocabulary. It's pleasant to read your recount of even the simplest events.

Just wanted you to know that someone, a friend, is enjoying your blog :)
