it’s christmas eve and we are going to go celebrate being young and being alive.

Since arriving home on Wednesday, I've attempted to watch The Holiday twice already, passing out within 30 minutes of the first scene each time.  But here I am, on the Christmas Eve morning/early afternoon attempting to watch it again, from the last spot I last remember before drifting off last night.  Third time is a charm...or … Continue reading it’s christmas eve and we are going to go celebrate being young and being alive.
