Afternoon Pick Me Up

It would be dangerous for me to live in some of my favorite places full time. I'm thinking of New York (Manhattan) and London. I would be sneaking off to matinees whenever I could. One year we were in Manhattan and I saw 7 broadway shows in a week. I can't get enough of quality live theatre, musicals, or movies. As it is I think a movie in the afternoon is the perfect pick me up. I love movies of all genres - from action to thriller to drama to comedy to independent and foreign. Movies have always been a motivating factor in my life. It being Oscar season, there are a lot of great movies to choose from. Yesterday afternoon my daughter and I saw The Impossible - about the Tsunami in Asia in 2004? Difficult to watch - cried a lot. Very emotional. But a great movie. Naomi Watts is up for an Oscar - which I found just a little odd given the roll she played. I thought the teenage kid - Tom Holland was especially good. Amazing story.
