...dreamers

You were a-wandering out on the hills of Iowa and you were not thinking of me...

My mother is watching the Miss America pageant, and I don't think I could be less interested. The girls aren't even that pretty, if you want to know my opinion. That said, DC and Alabama are the most promising. The others are just obnoxious.


We did just finish watching Playing By Heart, though, which is such a fantastic movie. Not particularly dignified or newsworthy (to quote Love Actually) but the acting is solid, the stories are touching, and the love seems real...even for a cynic such as myself. Rent it, and don't try to analyze it. The stories will come together on their own.


And now, I'm getting on my PJs and I suppose I'll watch to see who wins Miss America. Then it's bedtime. Or something that resembles bedtime.
