We seem to have watched a lot of movies recently, particularly the 'Best Picture' nominees for 2012.
Argo. Jim and I both really loved this movie. Great story and great acting. Definitely deserving of Best Picture.
Life of Pi. I started the book years ago but for some reason never finished it. Jim did read it and I think commented that it was really similar. Overall the movie was better than I was expecting.
Beasts of a Southern Wild. I think I liked it more than Jim. I loved the eccentric fantasy style storytelling of little Hushpuppy.
Zero Dark Thirty. Sometimes I still have a hard time comprehending jobs in the CIA and the fact that this is really what is going on in the world around me. I thought it was quite similar to Homeland (maybe because we just finished watching Season 1 & 2 on Netflix a few months ago).
Lincoln. Snooze alert. Honestly it took us 2 nights and we were falling asleep both times. Maybe more intriguing for those history buffs out there.
I'm STILL trying to finish Anna Karenina. Totally missed my March deadline (I knew that would never happen), but I have made some progress and may actually finish it in the next few weeks. Other intriguing works of literature I've been working on include: Diaper-Free before 3, The Diaper Free Baby, and Baby Signs. This is my life people.
Currently Listening to:
She & Him (prepping for their new album release), Trout Fishing in America (because Jim and I are nerds and love singing along), and a few Chris Kresser podcasts.
