I'm moved in. To MY place. MY PLACE. It's mine! Wow. It's surreal and fun and I've had a good time this week girling it up with my own personal touches, like picture frames and candles and vintage mirrors. (Pics of my favorite apartment spots to come...)
I've also been busy in my final week of unemployment settling into the town I plan on being in for awhile. I sorted files. Put the electric in my name. Joined a gym. Got a library card. You know, the essentials.
I also partook in a favorite pastime of renting classic movies (with my library card) that I've never seen before. This week's feature: the 1977 film Annie Hall, "the one that made Woody Allen famous." Although I'm not a huge fan of Woody Allen's work, I like this one about the romance of a budding night club singer and a slightly neurotic comedian. It's especially fun to watch a young Diane Keaton. (Very few women can pull off a vest and tie combo.) Here's my favorite line in the film:
And I thought of that old joke. You know, this guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, "Doc, my brother is crazy. He things he's a chicken." And the doctor says, "Well, why don't you turn him in?" And the guy says, "I would, but I need the eggs." Well, I guess that's pretty much how I feel about relationships. They are totally irrational and crazy and absurd, but I guess we keep going through it because most of us need the eggs.
Do you have any favorite classic movie quotes on hand? And can you recommend any old flicks that I can watch at MY new place?
