Moulin Rouge

There may not be a whole lot I want to watch, but AFN has great movies on the AFN Movie channel. If it hadn't been on, probably wouldn't have chosen to watch it, b/c not really one the kids would want. But they are not watching anyway. I had forgotten how much I like this movie. So my recommendations of good movies to watch are... Moulin Rouge!, Across the Universe, & Chicago. All great musicals.
I have found a couple of things that are fun, fun, fun. One: on Flickr there is a group called the Jumping Project. Let me tell you, they sure have it right. You can not be unhappy while jumping ( or at least, it's damn hard.) The 2nd: I learned about swaps a while ago, but the closest I got to doing anything is I found one place dedicated to postcard swapping, that I immediately directed my sister to as she loves postcards. I mean, I knew basically what it was, but didn't realize how big it was on-line. The postcard one is Post Crossing & the one I just joined is Swap-bot, because really. Who doesn't like getting stuff in the mail. The only real challenge will be keeping to schedule, but I can do it.
The other thing about not much tv wise, is revisiting shows we have bought series of or watching ones just purchased. Ivy found our couple of seasons of 3rd Rock From the Sun. I loved that show, but only ever bought 2 seasons. (Now on my list to get the rest.) I never thought about the fact that it is new to her, she never really watched any of it. The only description she could think of when asking about it was, "you know the show that has the guy with the squinchie eyes." She is loving it, & Robin - out of all the kids - seems to like Get Smart the most. He generally is my TV buddie. Likes the stuff I like. Get Smart, Monk, Psych. I got a bit link happy today. Trying to restrain myself.... With watching 3rd Rock again, just watched the episode where Tommy has a crush on his glee club teacher & she is singing Bali Hai (from South Pacific.) It is now stuck in my head. And the worst part is, I don't know the whole song, so just the same bit over & over & over & over, ad infinitum.
Went to the German dollar store the other day & found this adorable rain coat. Isn't she a doll. Had gone out with new friends, Ivy's scout leaders, to pick up some things for craft we were working on here & they showed me where some stores were & had lunch out - with adults, no kids. Ahhhhh. Anyway, I am working with the girls for their jewelry making badge & one part is for a jewelry box, so we went to get supplies. I now know where a German craft store is. Woo hoo. well, I am about rambled out, hope all is well with you all out there in the real world & ttfn.
