Shoot, lost it again...

My will to knit that is... I've not really put much effort into the whole knitting thing of late. Saving up to buy a truckload of yarn (and by truckload I mean as much as my credit card can take without buckling under the pressure...!) so maybe I'm delaying knitting until I get my goodies? Been busy with getting the kids ready for school and preparing myself for the start of my own studies - among other things. Meanwhile, in between dreaming about dropping babies (literally spilling them out of my hands) and being pregnant but not, I've been happily distracting myself with oldies but goodies. Movies that is, movies! Well, truth be told I've only watched two so far, but they were so good I'm watching them thrice! (Watched them before but nice to watch again and again...)

First up was Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Been meaning to get this for years now and finally did. Oh, that Maggie was one strong woman wasn't she? Not ashamed to beg her hottie hubby and do anything to win him back! I might have done the same based on Brick's then high degree of hotness! Loved the shot of his abs! Oh and the story too!

Next was Dear Frankie. Two words, Gerard Butler. Yummmmmmm!!! I can eat him with a small spoon. He played that role so well, I kinda wish I could write him a letter or two! Shivers! Have you seen it? Go watch it! I'm looking for romantic movies like this to occupy the time between work, getting the kids to school on time, taking care of them and their extracirriculars and maybe some of my own stuff. Any suggestion?

Ok, that's it - nothing more to say for now except that I hope all of you in the path of any weather systems stay safe and sound. Those suckers are coming off the coast like crazed shurikens!

Congratulations on all the yarn you've purchased. Please post pictures when it arrives. -- Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is one of my absolute favorites !!! The story line IS dynamic. I love how Maggie calls their neices and nephews "no neck monsters" !!!

Hey lady!

I wish I was getting some yarn. I love Scent of a Woman, but that is not a romantic movie is it. Let me think......

Oh, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof is one my top ten of all time--LOVE it. Liz Taylor never looked better.

I haven't been knitting either :-( Just reading.
