In Movies:
My mom got Netflix last weekend so I've been watching a lot of movies lately. Mostly romcoms.

  • Penelope -- I don't know what took me so long to watch this movie! Very awesome. 9.5/10
  • Robin Hood: Men in Tights -- Laughed so hard my throat hurt. 10/10
  • It's a Boy Girl Thing -- Hilarious at times with a very cute ending. 8/10
  • Play the Game -- Seems like another movie about a player that gets softened by the one girl he has to chase to have. It's not. 10/10
  • When in Rome -- Love this movie and the twist at the end. I want to go to Rome! 8/10
  • The Ugly Truth -- Gerard Butler + awesome plot = epic movie. 9.5/10
In Writing:
I took this week off to let Burning Bridges simmer so I don't have any work to report this week. I'm planning on starting revisions sometime this weekend.

Oh, Men In Tights! (Tight tights.) I adore that movie.
