My Yahoo.com horoscope for the day read: Take in a show of some kind -- music, art, performance or whatever floats your boat. Your great personal energy is perfect for absorbing culture, and it's past time to get started!
I love it! I wasn't going to mention it, but I have had a most opportune day of film and television. And having read my horoscope afterwards makes it even more ... full moonish.
First, I saw American Hustle. I am trying to do a better job of seeing Oscar nominated films this year, not just reading about them. Well let me tell you, I couldn't keep my eyes off of Christian Bale. Bad comb over, big tummy, and all was soooooo sexy. I'm not going to critique the movie ... you'll only see my gut reaction to it. I don't care for Bradley Cooper ... and I don't the same after seeing him perform. But the girls, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence, were so awesome. I loved the fashion ... a Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress and the Halston-esque 70's creations (were they real?). But that Bale ... yeah, I saw Batman before, and I don't remember any of his other movies, but as far as I'm concerned, this can be it. Cause he is it.
Then home to, oh! that's right ... I know someone who has HBO, so I was able to catch up on the first two episodes of the new season of Girls. AMAZING!
And then, of course, Downtown Abbey came on ... and what? The premiere of the new season of the BBC's Sherlock Holmes right after?! With a commercial for a new season of Doc Martin? Did I die and go to heaven?
No, but the Broncos beat the Patriots!
Ah, it was written in the stars. Written in the stars. I may not have accomplished a damn thing today, but I go to bed a happy lady. A happy lady.
