good thing...

...that I love Jimmy Stewart. Because this sounds like such a lame movie to "be". I mean, it's pretty staid as far as movies go. A bit of stirred-up politics is all. At least Stewart is just adorable in it. Plus, I do love the word "fillibuster." (Thanks for helping me out there, Dan.)

This morning was Elvis Day at the WLP, thanks to Gina having watched a documentary on the singer & then wanting an excuse to serve fried peanut butter & banana sandwiches! Hahaha. All I can say is, I'm sad I couldn't stick around for lunch!

At least right now I'm eating a fresh-baked bagel with pumpkin cream cheese on it, thanks to Brueggers, yum. And speaking of good food, yesterday JB made me some amazing crepes for dinner when I stopped to visit him at work! I love the Paris Creperie at Coolidge Corner.

I was at CC because Cait & I went to see this great panel called "No, But I Saw the Movie..." on children's books being turned into films, and the issues inherent in all that. It was so interesting, and we got to see Lois Lowry, Natalie Babbitt, and Phyllis Naylor (beloved children's book authors) -- as well as a clip from the upcoming Charlotte's Web. I cried watching it, because it was the scene where Charlotte says goodbye to Wilbur. So sad. (But, very well done in film! I look forward to seeing the whole thing.)

Okay, definitely time for me to get back to work. Enjoy the beautiful weather today! xoxo

that book move thing seemed awesome. I am so sad I didn't hear about that! Next time, will you let me know about cool things like that?
