Dinner and a Movie

It rained yesterday, cold, gray dreary rain. All I wanted all day was to come home to my nice (hopefully) dry house and not have to go out again.

So when Mario emailed me mid-afternoon and said we were going out for dinner and then to the movies, I grumbled a bit. I went, but I grumbled -mainly because he said he'd already gotten the tickets and I like knowing what I'm going to beforehand.

Except.

He got tickets to the 7:25 showing of The September Issue.

Because it was such a gray, dreary day that he thought I needed perking up.

I have many thoughts on the movie, but first and foremost is that I enjoyed it more - far more - than I enjoyed the real September issue this year.

Second, I would like to see the world through Grace Coddington's eyes. And I wouldn't mind having her red hair, either.

Points for Mario!!! What a great guy!!! I don't think I could drag Tom to see the September issue...he complains about Project Runway!

Definitely points for Mario. I didn't love the issue either.

I agree, points for Mario.

Red hair? Better living through chemistry....

Mario is such a sweetheart - You'll just have to make him a jacket! "The September Issue" hasn't come to our area yet. The market for this movie isn't real high in our t-shirt and cut-offs location. I keep hoping because it's got to be better than the real September issue this year.

Aww - give Mario a kiss for all of us! He deserves it.

Wow, your Mario is one thoughtful guy.

The film just came out in France. I was wondering whether it was worth going to see it at the cinema, or whether just to wait for the DVD to come out and rent it. Hmm.
