~2~ Last week I watched A Room with a View. I had forgotten how much I liked this movie, and while I don't generally espouse nudity in movies, the skinny dipping scene with George, Freddy, and the Mr. Beebe always has me rolling on the floor with laughter.

~3~ I originally saw this movie with someone I was seriously in love with but who is now a Franciscan priest.
~4~ As long as we're discussing the British ... I recently borrowed Season 1 of Downton Abbey and was hooked. Then I languished for two weeks waiting to borrow Season 2. Today in Costco I caved and bought it.
~5~ Guess what I'll be doing while Joe and the boys watch the Celtics play tonight?
~6~ Oh, and about the British accent ... when I graduated from high school my parents sent me to Italy all by myself. Three weeks later I returned home, bringing with me my aunts, uncles, and a cousin. The trip back involved an overnight stay in London and, since I was the only English-speaking person in the group, everyone depended on me to get us to the hotel. I asked directions from a proper English gentleman, but BLIMEY! if I understood a word of it. Not one word. My relatives thought this was terribly funny.
~7~ Since today was National Doughnut Day -- and yes, we got our free doughnuts -- here are some words of wisdom: An optimist sees the doughnut; the pessimist sees the hole.
Now go visit Jen at Conversion Diary for some more Quick Takes ... she is trying to decide what to wear for a television appearance.
