After surviving 3 weeks in the hunched-over-the-table-in-the-essay-writing-position, I’m back in the Bay Area and it just feels so wonderful. Now there is time for Pinterest and soaking in some gems of culture.
1. Finally saw My Week with Marilyn. My girl crush on Michelle Williams has escalated significantly after seeing this beautiful film. However, I’ve got to say that Emma Watson’s strangely long hair threw me off. And wherever did this Eddie Redmayne come from?!
2. I’ve been watching New Girl, which is a little bit over the top but also just so cute. Zooey Deschanel’s album “A Very She & Him Christmas” has been staring at me every time I’ve ducked into a Starbucks. After I found out that proceeds from the album benefit 826 National, I had to go ahead and give it a listen. The Christmas Waltz is lovely, I must say.
3. Even after reading all three books and seeing the Swedish films, I’m still looking forward to seeing the American version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. For Rooney Mara, the lucky girl playing Lisbeth Salander, this kind of unconventionally sexy Prabal Gurung dress was just right for the New York premiere.
4. Movies I am also excited to view in days to come include: The Iron Lady, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and Sherlock Holmes. I’m guess I’m going to have to take it easy on the popcorn…
