Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Relax See A Movie

One surefire way for me to de-stress or to get out of a funk is to watch a movie, especially one that’s simple, fun-filled and not emotionally draining. Viola! Times like these, I need a Disney!

That’s why a few weeks ago I found myself browsing through a DVD sale and, as if compelled by inner forces beyond my control, I just grabbed a copy of Disney’s Enchanted, Freaky Friday (I’ve not yet watched this Jamie Lee Curtis/Lindsay Lohan flick) and The Princess Diaries (I watched the sequel in the theaters without bothering to check out the first movie). I remember going home with a silly smile plastered on my face.

Maybe the thought of curling up in bed and slipping these movies one after the other into my laptop was already enough. Or maybe I’ve gotten better at snapping out of a funk and moving on. Perhaps Life just happened. Whatever. The three movies are still on my bedside table, their plastic covers still unwrapped.
