NNWM/12: Mind Blown Upon Arrival

Today has been a very good day. After a leisurely morning, Tara and I took a walk through the park and stopped into WinCo to pick up a few things we needed for dinner. Then we headed to Regal Cinemas where we caught a movie, “Arrival.” I used to see a lot more movies thanContinue reading “NNWM/12: Mind Blown Upon Arrival”

34 Miles to Nostalgia

Saturday, we helped Audrey cross an item off her bucket list by taking her to see a movie at the drive-in. First off, I’m surprised that any of these places still exist.

The Oscar Should Go To…

The Oscar nominations came out today, and for the first time in my life I feel perfectly qualified to pick a winner. Because, through a combination of unemployment, boredom, and cheap movies at the local cineplex every Tuesday, I have actually seen all ten films nominated for Best Picture. I’d never accomplished that feat before,Continue reading “The Oscar Should Go To…”
