Up at 5 AM but back to bed at 6. No Laurel and Hardy. Don't know what happened.
Paper shows several good-looking films opening this week.
Somehow I felt closer to Mom and Dad today.
Spent the afternoon on homework.
Taking two 1999 books to show Mona tomorrow.
Saw Bogey at 2 and then bathed and washed my hair.
Big trash fire at the grocery store at 9:15!
Saw the new Mousketeers for the first time on Disney tonight and then finally watched GONE WITH THE WIND. Not that impressed really.
NOTES: Oddly enough, Laurel and Hardy are running all night long tonight on TCM in 2011.
Presumably I was referring to SPACE 1999 books that I was planning to show Mona. In yet another odd tie-in to the present day, I offered several SPACE 1999 paperbacks fro sale on my Bookstore blog last week!
The new Mouseketeers were a mixed bag with the cute one--the new Annette-- being little Lisa Whelchel who would go on to fame as Blair on THE FACTS OF LIFE. My favorite was POPS (I think that was his name), the young African-American kid.
This would have been my first time watching GONE WITH THE WIND. As a film buff, that was a big deal. That said, as I wrote, i really wasn't that impressed. I love the photography and the sets and the spectacle and the costumes...but I dislike all the characters and the story drags SO much to me.
