the recovery movie marathon

September 25, 2013

Wisdom teeth extraction recovery has gone very well indeed.  In fact, we debated about whether I’m in such a good mood because of the drugs, or because I’m so relieved that this is finally over with.  I’m even eating food that isn’t jello!

I spent a good deal of time on the sofa watching movies.  Here’s the historical/costume drama film festival I inadvertently arranged:

  • Seabiscuit
  • Sense and Sensibility (Ang Lee/Emma Thompson version)
  • Tombstone
  • Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
  • Sherlock Holmes

And then I got back to work.  Mostly, what watching all these movies in a row made me want to do is sew some costumes and go to parties.

    Glad you are feeling better. Nice lineup of recovery flicks, too. Love Tombstone, best lines ever. My DH wants to enter (or better yet, exit) a meeting with the train station scene.

    I love the film Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. Miss Pettigrew is such a catalyst for the others, while having her own story arc. One of my favorite scenes is where she is talking with a man about WWI, saying how the young people don’t understand about war. I have read a few books set in that period, specifically the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear, that gave me insight into that exchange.

    I loved Sense and Sensibility and Seabiscuit. Wonderful! Even if they messed around a little with Jane Austen, the emotion was there!
