Saturday's Simple Pleasure
As E and I ran into the library briefly yesterday to pick up a book, Sherry our head librarian told us about a new event in our small town library: a monthly "Chick Flick." And the very first one was to be that very night, with Music & Lyrics with Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore being the featured presentation. And the fee to attend: a snack to share.
E and I loved the film when it first came out; we'd seen it in the theatre for my birthday in March. So, armed with a bag of baby carrots as our snack contribution, we ventured out "on the town" on a Friday night to find the library's community room full of women who had brought serious snacks: strawberries to dip in melted chocolate, white-chocolate macadamia-nut cookies, M&Ms, popcorn, lemonade, trail mix, etc.
All the women agreed that we MUST do this twice a month, at the very least. Next on the dock: The Holiday with Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz.
So my Simple Pleasure of this week: watching a movie with my neighbors, laughing and eating chocolate together, and Hugh Grant's corny, bootie-shaking, 80s-era music video....
