The Time Traveler's Wife

Good snowy day all.  No school today.  The same day I decided I would stay in my jammies and do a "Movies on Demand", cuddle with my favorite zippy strippy quilt, grab my favorite drink and watch .. drum roll please ...  "The Time Traveler's Wife".  I read the book a few months ago and LOVED it. 

However, Addie didn't have school today.  Vandy was late going to work.  So okay, I could delay the movie for a bit.  I could wait for Addie to wake up to watch it with me.  Well, then she finally gets up, she TEXTS through the entire movie and then if she wasn't texting, she would talk and talk and talk and talk and talk and talk, get the picture?   Oh, and did I mention pauses?  Mom could you pause this, and then a 20 minute pause during the last 15 minutes of the show.  GRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

It isn't already bad enough that I have gone through my mindless movie watching days to repeating places in the movie because of a way the shot was done, to knowing producers, directors ........ watching credits, who does that anyway??????  Well I know who!!!!    Parents of a daughter that graduate from William and Mary with a degree in Film Studies.  I miss those mindless film days. 

Anyway ......

I LOVED The Time Traveler's Wife, even with the multiple interruptions.  Rent it today.  And leave the $3.99 on the coffee table for your husband that will remind you that you have an unlimited Blockbuster monthly rental agreement.  But we are in the middle of another snowstorm, and I couldn't wait.  And I couldn't risk driving in the storm, oh I forgot, my car is in the shop getting repaired from ADDIE'S wreck in it on Saturday from the last snowstorm. 

Enjoy the snow all.
