nic's sick pics

both sick and pic can be taken as double meanings. get it?
so i'm super sick. i haven't been this sick in a long time. i have been bed ridden for 48+ hours (minus teaching seminary... yeah, i'm hard core).
anyway, i thought i'd share some of my sick bed movie reccomendations, seeing as if there is one thing i am an authority on, it's movies. well, movies and saturday night live. those are my areas of expertise. i have invested ALOT of time in these two things. just be thankful that you are not with me in person or you would have to listen to me quoting said movies. here goes:

1. love story.
 if you want to really love your husband, and you want to really cry your eyes out, this is the way to do it. bonus: ryan o'neil and ali mcgraw are both super hot... and their witty banter is unparalleled.

2. billy the kid (documentary).
if you read extremely loud and incredibly close, and loved it... then you need to watch this. it will make you laugh and want to cry at the same time.

3. thoroughly modern millie.
if you're in the mood for a little song and dance a la julie andrews, this is fun for the whole family.

4. far and away.
one of my all time favorites. love is not a strong enough word. i luff it. i lurve it. (that's from annie hall by the way, another one of my favorites). anywho, if you're all weirded out by tomkat and scientology etc., this movie will take you back to being super charmed by and in love with tom cruise. he and nicole kidman called it their 'honeymoon movie' because they made it together right after they were married. awwwwe.

and last but certainly not least...

5. rushmore.
what can i say about this movie? it makes my heart feel full. it makes my mind feel smarter. it makes me want to create. for some reason i really see myself in max fisher. i can't decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing. just one quote.... "what are you, a lawyer?"
oh, i love it.

see you on the flip side.

nicole i'm sorry you are sick. i'm gonna call you tomorrow to see how you are doing. i love your movie list! love story is the best even though the book is better.
p.s. i'm getting fatter by doing the 30 day shred. for real. what is the point?

my current fave movie is The Others with Nicole Kidman, and the Interpreter with her too. Oh, and what is really sad is when you are a SNL expert and you have kids who are teens and are watching it too. Mike and I were in bed one Sat night watching SNL, when Brady came home with some friends. We made them come in our room and watch a hilarious Kristen Wiig sketch with us. I think they were creeped out- too funny
