... went to see The Great Gatsby!! I loved it. I was terrified that Baz Luhrmann would ruin my favorite classic book. But he absolutely did not. The Atlantic Monthly's review stated that "Luhrmann seems to want us to feel more or less what Fitzgerald wanted us to feel, only more loudly... To this end, Luhrmann turns every dial at his disposal up to 11." And boy is that true. The colors are bright, the music is brash, the cinematography is constantly moving. It's very Baz Luhrmann and very, very good. It has nothing at all in common with the original Robert Redford/Mia Farrow version, which I also loved, other than the story. Two very different takes on the book but both fantastic.
... had my first Sam Adams Summer Ale of the season. This is by far my favorite beer, and I love when spring/summer rolls around so that restaurants start carrying it!
And I'm also working on my own! The beauty of doing your own blog design is that you can change it whenever you want without having to spend any money. :)
Ignore the baseball stance... ;)
... started Night Circus. I'm only about 40 pages in, but it's already very intriguing. I wish I had had more time to read it this weekend!
... spent Mother's Day with my family. We had a great afternoon with some delicious food and a lot of fun.
