Day 478: The Slipper and The Rose

It's an awesome movie.

You can see a poorly made trailer for it here.  Not that I really ought to be judging, as I have no clue how to do such things.

Back to the movie, though.  It's fabulous.  And loved by most of the women who I love most.  And maybe some very enlightened men.

A couple months ago, I suddenly needed to watch it.  Is it possible to crave a movie?  If so, that is what I experienced.  It's no longer in production, so it's very difficult to come by.  My sweet HH reached out to the interlibrary loan system to see if it was to be had.

And then we heard nothing, so I forgot about it.

Until about 1 1/2 weeks ago, when he received an email stating that it was in at our library!  Sweetness!  All the way from Sitka, Alaska.  Amazing!  So, I invited all of my girlfriends to come experience it with me.  None of them had ever seen it!  Tragic.  Tonight we watched it.  And it was my Joyful Moment.  I'm not sure if any of them appreciated it quite as much as they ought to have.  But I think everyone had a good time.

And one of my awesome friends gave me a pedicure while we watched.  Like, a professional pedicure.  My toes look so amazing.  How spoiled am I?!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments in meeting all of your movie cravings and getting pretty toes, too!

What a great activity! Maybe you'll have to a repeat so they can fully enjoy and appreciate it!

I remember being so excited to share that movie with my daughter, and it put her to sleep! That was a few years ago. We watched it again fairly recently and it was more enjoyable. Maybe it has to grow on you, but it's still one of my favorite movies :)

I found it on DVD several years ago and bought a copy for myself and one for Grandma because it was one of her favorites too (she loved the grandmother - "there's somebody in the room" she always used to say to me when we talked about it). I wonder what happened to her copy?
