I LOVE Harvey! I was watching a show about Jimmy Stewart a few weeks ago, and he said that people would stop him on the street and ask him--seriously--if Harvey was with him.

My favorite Jimmy Stewart movie is "The Cheyenne Social Club," with Henry Fonda. But, I'll take Jimmy Stewart anyway I can get him...I have both movies and several others, may be time for a marathon.

Last night we watched Law Abiding Citizen. We knew nothing about it going in except that it was supposed to be good. I was impressed. I really loved this flick.

Yes, good film. Like I mentioned a few days ago, some scenes were very predictable, especially the part where several vehicles start blowing up.

Yeah you could see that coming a million miles away. There was another dumb part in the cemetery. They were pointing their guns at the car that blew up instead of the gunner.

My girlfriend and I used to go to RHPS every Friday at midnight our last couple of years of HS. I think the dialog and lyrics are permanently ingrained in my memory....like Conjunction Junction and We The People from Schoolhouse Rock.

I still attend the yearly showing...but then I'm a GeekGirl. I can also be found at Science-Fiction Conventions and Ren Faires.

I haven't been to a convention since the eighties...but Renn Faires are another matter. We usually get to Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania every year. My fiance's former roommate is a performer at VA, MD and one of the North Carolina faires. I've been going to Maryland since I was in elementary school. They open on a weekday for school field trips once or twice every season.

As luck would have it, the VA Faire opened between my home and my business. Lots of the Rennies who didn't have anything to do during the week would hang out at my store and blow the little bit of money they made on dice and role playing games. I was really sorry to see them close the Faire. The new one isn't nearly as ambitious, but it's still fun.

okay confession time..

1 - I have not been to RHPS in 16 years.. but I saw my 30th viewing on my 30th birthday. That was the last time I'd seen it before last night. I still remembered the songs.. but my audience participation in severly lacking.

2- I have School House Rock on DVD.
