I've been all over the map this week - emotionally, physically, and whatever else is applicable. As a result, my movie watching has been a bit spastic, and I've actually spent most of the week playing a game that helps distract me in the horrible times.
Every single time I put on the movie Dirty Dancing, my entire face lights up. I know every single line. I have the soundtrack. I am sad that Patrick Swayze died. I only have about 25 movies that have the ability to raise my spirits so high! I made the boyfriend watch it with me as he had never seen it before - he seemed to think it wasn't the worst thing the world ever made :). Sometimes I just put on the movie ending because it is such a pick-me-up!
This started off slow, but by the halfway mark I was in HYSTERICAL laughter. BEST romantic comedy I have seen in years. Crazy, joyous, rambunctious romp through New York City and a case of mistaken identity. Doubles for the boyfriend as an action film. Brilliant.
I was a Bejeweled 2 DIEHARD for a long time. I'm actually very good at it. But Bejeweled Blitz is my newest obsession. One of my friends has an incredibly high score, and I've been trying ALL week to beat him. Alas, I have failed every single time. Still such a challenge to do in one minute, while keeping my brain active and calming my thoughts! Anyone who hasn't played this or a similar mindless game - totally get on it!!
Also, I was lucky enough to do a guest post over at A Glass Half Shattered. Check it out!
Double also (haha), my post is up at the new Fight Like A Girl Club website (as I'm a Power Team Writer there for FMS/CFS!).
