over the thanksgiving holiday, without wheels to deal of mine own, i started to go just a weeeeee bit stir crazy. some text messages were exchanged, an evacuation planned.
since there was no more shopping on the planet to be done, it became quite clear that a feature film was the only agreeable time burner, i mean, activity in which lindsey and i wanted to participate.
four christmases? australia? no! wait! what were we THINKING! there we were, 2 girls with an affinity for all things ancient, moldy, and corseted. 2 girls who typically view feature films with 2 boys who frown upon all things ancient, moldy, and corseted. the answer, once again, rang clear and true. to the theaters! make haste, make haste!
besides a few surprise moments that could have made more of a woman out of me if i hadn't been forewarned (justify justify justify), it was, as period pieces usually are, terrific.
