Midnight in Paris

I can't believe I haven't talked about this movie yet.
I've never really jumped onto the Woody Allen bandwagon--not on purpose--I just feel like his movies probably require some thought and most of the time when I'm watching a movie I'm not thought-ing. Thinking.

But when I heard about "Midnight in Paris" I really had no choice but to go see it in the theater. I completely agree with Owen Wilson's character Gil that Paris in the 20's must have been magic. I tend to be quite maudlin so I really related to the themes of the movie. ("Themes"? Really, Kelly? You miss writing papers for school that much?)

Anyway...I'm on the lookout for one of these tiny wristlet clutches. But it has to have a small chain or rope like this one. If you find one...don't be greedy and pass along the info please.

I don't know where this post will end up

August 2011
Remember how I'm saving up for a dress form with my loose change?
Last count on April 4th, I had $3.64, 2 Canadian pennies, 2 $2 bills, and a 1979 silver dollar.
All the oddball change is the same, but as of right now, I'm up to $12.67! Amazing.
At this rate, I'll have my dress form by the time I'm 80.

Also, I bought a dress on sale at Urban Outfitters. It's adorable and makes me feel like Madeline. I would show you an actual picture, but it's sort of...see through. So I need to find a slip dress to go underneath it first. But for now, how cute are these elephants! I'm glad they get to go out with me whenever I wear this dress.
I've decided on the spot to name them Fjord and Hildegarde.
Good Scandinavian names for a good Dane like Peter Jensen.

God bless all my distant Scandinavian cousins.
