Despite spending much of last weekend trying to shake that cough & sore throat, my efforts screwed up my sleeping pattern so badly that there wasn’t much time to watch much of anything. When I say “not much of anything”, that also means that I spent the majority of a certain football game huddled in a blanket.
However, once I got up and at ‘em, I happily returned to the cinema – not once, but twice! In some ways, it felt like going home. In other ways, it made me smile with amusement, especially since I was did so once with a fever, and then later in the midst of a blizzard.
Back at home, there was another Best Picture scratched off the ever-dwindling watchlist this week. Part of me expects that to kick into overdrive next week, especially with TCM showing five of what I still haven’t seen on Feb. 15th!
