The winter of 2010 was bearable because Mistah and I spent six weeks away from Connecticut on our Vitamin D tour. The only two bad things about last winter were missing all those swim meets with Nancy, and missing the Film Festival with Jennie.
And now it's the Winter of 2011, and it's just like the good ol' days of 2009 again. Because even though this crazy winter weather has cancelled so much school that the swim meet schedule has been completely screwed up, Nancy and I have been able to go to a few meets together, including two in the last week.
And tomorrow? Tomorrow is the beginning of the 2011 Winter Film Festival at New London's stunning Garde Arts Center. This year's Festival features these movies:
The Kids Are Alright
The Social Network
I Am Love
How To Train Your Dragon
Isn't this exciting? Although I've seen The Kids Are Alright and The Social Network, and although I'm disappointed that 127 Hours, Black Swan and Blue Valentine aren't included, and although I can't make it to the double feature on the last day to see last two movies, I'm just pleased as punch at the thought of being there in that gorgeous theater, night after night with my girl Jennie, totally immersed in the fabulous, make-believe, spectacular world of the movies.
Why yes! There will be wine.
