I was all ready to receive my "The Unofficial we love Hugh Grant but aren't really smitten by him Fan club" or U.W.L.H.G.B.A.R.S.B.H. Charter Fan Club Card from Kathleen. That is, until I happened upon Matthew Goode in "Chasing Liberty". (Don't ask me why I was watching "Chasing Liberty", but it was just the light, romantic, slush I needed, and excuse me, even 48-year-olds need silly romance movies sometimes.) Sooo, scoot over Hugh, there's is a younger, cuter, taller Brit making girls swoon.
And speaking of wasting time watching television, I became completely addicted to "Sex in the City" while channel surfing through Comcast - HBO "On Demand". I realized I could watch the first 13 episodes, which I did, one after another, as quickly as my little fingers could push the remote control buttons, in two nights. I was completely hooked. Sent my husband to fetch the rest. Being an angel, he bought me the complete DVD set. It pulled me out of myself. I remembered that being 'female' could be difficult, fun, wicked, tricky, complicated. I probably had a little of each of those characters in me in another life. I didn't think I was depressed or unusually introverted, but have felt more connected to womankind and life somehow. Thanks, Girls!
Plan on wasting even more time watching the Benny Hill Marathon coming up on BBC America.
