Hello Friday - Goodbye Thursday.

And posted on a Saturday. Go figure.

You're never too old for Happy Meal toys! If you get nothing else from McDonald's - just get the toys.


I love Friday's.

The other days of the workweek, from Monday to Thursday, are alright - I've never really suffered from the anxiety or trouble getting through the week that some people do, and now that I've said that I might've jinxed myself but, alas, alack and oh well. The week drags on, but it's never really great or terrible.

Saturday's are great - and I enjoy them, but not quite as much as Friday's. I'm probably my laziest on Saturday's, which is nice but isn't necessarily the best thing. And Sunday is nice but ruined by the idea of the work week starting the next day - and all the monotony that goes along with that.

Friday's, though, are pretty much perfect. You've had to work, probably, but when work let's out you're free. You carry all sorts of promise for a productive and fun weekend and the sun shines a little brighter while the stars twinkle with a little more effort too. 

My Friday was lovely - filled with food from a local Noodles store with the family and some much needed downtime with them afterword with a movie.

You may not be the type of person that enjoys anime or anything animated at all (Toy Story, etc.) but, even if you are one of those people, I really believe in my heart that you'll enjoy a Hayao Miyazaki film.

The family and I watched Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind yesterday - which prompted this sudden belief. It has a really calming soundtrack for the most part, and a great story line to boot. A very obvious moral lesson about the dangers of industrialization and pollution - but still, really well crafted.

I think Miyazaki's most recognized film is Spirited Away - which makes sense, because it really is one of his best. But you really can't go wrong with any of his films.

Anyway - just food for thought.

Any movie recommendations for me? Drop a comment, and I'll probably watch it.

  3. Annika - so sweet of you! We really need film in my house right now, the seasons for most of our favorite shows are over.
