When I’m home for the holidays, I definitely need time on my own. I call them “Jess-only field trips” and no one can come on these trips unless you are invited. Very exclusive.
I go on these field trips when I need time alone because my family and lack of privacy have driven me to the point of near insanity. It happens.
And because non-holiday gift shopping is a no-no until the 29th (staying strong!), I’m occupying my time with movies. And yes, I brought a list home with me of what I want to see.
So my post-holiday-movies-to-see wish list includes:
Nine - I love Rob Marshall’s directing style and musicals. Plus, Penelope’s song and dance number looks hot!
It’s Complicated – I’m not the target audience for this but my future husband John K is in it and looking smoking hot (as normal) so I must support him (and dream of marrying and having lots of babies with him)
An Education – A Golden Globe nominee so I need to see it to see if I pick it as one of my winners. And I hear great things about it.
Invictus – I like Clint Eastwood’s movies and I could use something motivational and uplifting. Plus, Matt Damon is hot too
The movie you won’t see on my list, Avatar. I’ve heard amazing things about it but I’m not really in the mood for it right now. I’m sure it’s great but I’m not sure if it’s my cup of tea. I’ll hold off until I can drag Scratching Post Jenn with me next week.
What about you? Do you see a lot of movies over the holidays? Or what do you plan on seeing while you’re at home?
Hot/cold: First, I’m really glad I’m not the only one freezing cold in my parents home. Everyone’s comments made me laugh about their parents, husbands or boyfriends keeping their place cold. I know, I should be better about my carbon footprint. But I hate being cold.
