... from the weather all day. Am at library now, tho will be kicked out soon.
Saw The Devil Wears Prada this afternoon on the big screen, gorging on popcorn. The theater was filled with groups of women and one pair of guys. You knew what was going to happen at the end from the very beginning (she'll come to her senses, go become that ace cub reporter, make up with the idiotic boyfriend, etc.), but was enjoyable anyway, and the clothes were to die for. Anne Hathaway's eyes are incredible. It would have been a much more interesting movie without the boyfriend and the fake sanctimoniousness of the friends, however. Wanted to stiletto each and every one of them. Really wanted her to stay with the magazine at the end. So let's give it 2.5 to 3 stars, maybe 3.5 if you can completely ignore the boyfriend/friends shit.
I realize this is of little interest to you, but of even far less interest is my search for the old writing. Brought a few things to the library that I've been working over a bit. Maybe tomorrow I'll post.
In the meantime, to continue the fashion theme, if you haven't been checking out A Dress A Day, you should. She has posted another episode of "The Secret Life of Dresses."
About to leave now. Girding loins.
