Currently reading: The Road

WOW, this book is amazing. I haven't been able to put it down since I started and find myself thinking about it all day. Has anyone else read it? I'll pass it on as soon as I'm done, which will hopefully be tonight!

ps- don't tell me anything about the movie. i don't know who's in and i'm trying to not find out!

A Single Man

I'm dying to see this. I've heard Colin Firth is amazing, not to mention it's directed by Tom Ford. Yes Please.

When Jenn was here visiting we got on the subject of alternative Xmas trees. I'm not talking plastic, fake smelling, white, tinsel trees. I don't know that I could ever go down that road.

Guernica has always been one of my most favorite Picasso pieces. I loved dissecting and analyzing it in my art history classes. I was always so moved by the tragedy of war it depicts, not to mention the symbolizism of Spain's struggle during that time.

Has anyone ever seen it in person? I would die to.
