i just got a haircut. it's quite liberating! no more pigtails or hair falling into my face while working.... lucky moi!

i watched big fish last night.

big fish

no need to point out i'm behind the times in movies. i always am. i can never quite make it to the theater [unless i am going with family or am vacationing some where]. i know that seeing movies on my little 15" TV isn't doing them justice, but oh well...

it's a really great movie [duh! tim burton]. the visuals are really striking ... i especially loved the scenes of the town of spector both in it's hey day and post-glory. those shoes hanging from a wire are now imprinted in my brain. i also couldn't help but relate the dad in the movie to my grandpa - teller of tall tales too [although not quite elaborate!]. and the ending was really touching [yes it requires a hanky. at least for me]

OK, i actually have to get some work done now - eek!

Yay for haircuts. They always give me so much confidence, I'm not sure why-anyway- you look great! I am also very behind as far as the cinema is concerned but you must see Charlie and the Chocolate factory in the Theater. I don't care what anyone says-the "boring parts" (ie the parts not in the factory) are truly visually stunning. It is only one of two movies I've seen in Portland-and was totally worth it. Thanks for the tips about the mix tape flickr art-so cool ;). Sorry to leave a gigantic comment-ih well. Your package is in the mail tommorrow-abby

Big Fish has great imagery. The colors seem to be hightened and I love the stories.

Nice do Lisa! I wore my hair that short for years and I totally miss not having to do anything to it.

Love Big Fish!
