It's my last day off, I am back to work tomorrow and already I am having serious anxiety over this concept.
The more days off I have, the harder it is to go back!
Guess I need to cram in all the stuff I didn't do all week, into today.
That sounds a little too daunting for 8am.
Or perhaps, just maybe, I will sit and watch Gone With The Wind.
I am sure I will cause quite a stir when I say this, but I have never seen that movie. (Gasp)
I know, me, the one who considers herself a film buff.
In fact, there's a few classic I have not seen yet.
Wait for it, wait for it, prepare yourselves......
I can hear the moans and groans already!
Strange isn't it, I mean what do I do with my time if I haven't seen Casablanca or Gone With The Wind yet????

Okay, I haven't really seen that many now that I have a good look.
Although, I have seen Wizard of Oz about 40 times, actually, probably more than 40 times, if that counts for anything.
There is also a list for the Top 100 Romance films, and I have probably seen most of the them.
Classic or not, I am never going to watch a Lord of the Rings film, nor will I ever sit through Apocalypse Now. I have an attention span of a 2 year old for movies like that.
I know, I know.....gasp!!!
Oh, and the only reason I ever saw The Deer Hunter (in case you were wondering), I was at a Drive-In with my parents when I was about 9 (or maybe I was 3....since it came out in 1978....cough, yes, I remember now, I was definately 3).
Anyway, I should have been asleep, but I wasn't.....there, that's the only reason that's crossed off my list.
Now it's your turn, which ones can you cross off?
I guess, I should stop chatting and get moving, looks like I still have a whole lot of movie watching to do.
Gone with The Wind it is!!!
