Ever have one of thoses days/nights when you're surfing the TV for that right movie. You know the one that you've seen over and over but can't seem to get enough of! The one you can watch and know all the words to each and every scene. Some that you've gone out and bought but when you come across it on the television--you still sit and watch it and tack on another digit to the number of times you've seen it. This is better known as the 100+ club. Sunday was just one of those days when I came across,"Pretty Woman", which got me thinking about how many times I've seen it along with several others. Here's my list--and not in any particular order. Feel free to add to it or share your list.
1. Pretty Woman
2. The American President
3. The Graduate
4. Bend It Like Beckam
5. Princess Diaries
6. Corina, Corina
7. Regarding Henry
8. Top Gun
9. Shawshank Redemption
10. Miss Congeniality
11. Two Weeks Notice
12. The Cutting Edge
13. Dances With Wolves
14. Sleepless in Seattle
15. Ever After
16. Legally Blonde
17. Return to Me
18. The Way We Were
20. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
Wow, that's a long list and alot of movie watching.

In the afternoon the sun lights up the living room of my apartment and shadows from the trees dance upon the wall on one of my favorite paintings by the artist Howard Behrens . This print is titled Mediterranean Colors. "His paintings have a specific goal, a singular intent, no matter what the subject matter: to bring the pleasure of being alive to the foreground of our awareness". Whenever I'm feeling down all I have to do is stare at this print and I'm taken away into another realm.

in a land far away,
a beautiful, independent,
happened upon a frog as she sat,
contemplating ecological issues
on the shores of an unpolluted pond
in a verdant meadow near her castle.
The frog hopped into the princess' lap
and said: Elegant Lady,
I was once a handsome prince,
until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.
One kiss from you, however,
and I will turn back
dapper, a young prince that I am
and then, my sweet, we can marry
and setup housekeeping in your castle
with my mother,
where you can prepare my meals,
clean my clothes, bear my children,
feel grateful and happy doing so.
as the princess dined sumptuously
on a repast of lightly sauteed frog legs
seasoned in a white wine
and onion cream sauce,
she chuckled and thought to herself:
I don't fucking think so.

If it could be explained... there'd be no need to see it.
Saw the latest show 'Varekai' by Cirque du Soleil this afternoon. Varekai means "wherever" and is another amazing performance that I could see again and again. If you've never seen a show then you need to treat yourself to enterainment beyond your wildest imagination. This was my 5th show to see and already looking forward to the next one. This was another moment that took my breath away and another memento to add to my box.

I was blogging on Ottmar's blog about the cd I'm listening too right now and realized it's been awhile since I've listened to this wonderful CD. The first track is titled, "When it Rains" and its appropriate given the rainy day we had today. At the office, I found myself looking out the window at the dreary day longing to crawl back into bed and dream of a warm sunny day but I'll have to wait until tomorrow when the sun will bring the break of another day.
