If you have never seen Gone With the Wind, you need to break down and do it. In fact, I am going to make sure it is included in one of our movie marathons sometime soon cause I haven't seen it in years and would love an excuse to see it again. Speaking of, lets pin down our marathon plans tomorrow (Sunday) eh Sue? Maybe would could do a theme of "Epic movies". That would be cool and this is definitely classified as an epic. I got the idea of doing this movie after thinking of Vivian Leigh playing Scarlett and how she nailed it. I also thought maybe that would give you guys a little clue. I must say, when one reads the book, they get a finer understanding of Scarlett and she is a much more sympathetic character. Another FINE idea for a movie marathon- movies based on books, yet I think to make it legit, we would need to read the book too. Interesting and perhaps we would need to allow a little more time for that one in between movies. I love that idea though. Anyway-- Gone With the Wind. Probably the most favorite movie of my childhood. I am pretty sure it was introduced to me by my good friend Emily (I would like to pat ourselves on the back a little Em, I don't think there are a lot of 10 year olds these days that even know what that movie is, and I can tell them right now it's much better then Hannah Montana). I can't write this without mentioning Ami too- she was there right there with us even if she didn't weigh in this week- what Aim? Too busy with newborn twins or something? (I swear, the excuses people come up with.) We watched it A LOT and collected memorabilia too. She (Emily) also had a few things in her room from the movie. What stands out to me was a mammy doll (complete with a red satin petticoat). I love Mammy! I love how she constantly mutters under her breath. I was very close to doing a mammy line this week "It ain't fittin' it just ain't fittin. It ain't fittin." But felt like it would be too easy. Of course I could have done probably the most quoted line in the history of movies, but I couldn't decide if doing it would be ironic or mundane, so in the end I just didn't.
So- hang on to your hats peeps----- Amy won!!! Yeah Aim! I was so excited when you emailed me and got it right. Pops rang in second followed by Cat, Sue, Emily (she couldn't resist- she's the mammy doll friend), and caboosing it is Dan.
Congrats Aim! Welcome to the board.
