I’m having some girlfriends over that I haven’t seen in a while or dinner and a movie on Saturday night. I’ll fire up the grill and get my sizzle on (fo’ shizzle!) – flank steak and veggies – and we’ll assuredly drink copious amounts of wine and gossip like a clutch of egg-laying hens. Giddyup!
Plans also include a movie so I picked up a few that I thought looked good but it wasn’t until a few minutes ago, when I emailed the gals the synopses of my selections that my Debbie Downer Alert went **ding-a-ling-ling**!
No comedies, no chick flicks, no lighthearted romances. Ohhhh no, no, no! Madame Morbidity here chose three gut wrenchers: Tsotsi, Once and 21 Grams.
Criminy! What the hell is wrong with me? Naughty hostess! Naughty, naughty… Too bad that Couples Retreat job isn’t out on DVD yet – looks good and chuckly and easy to digest from behind a red meat- and wine-induced coma curtain.
