Coming this Fall  
I've been in a Fall mood, lately. Last night, I cooked pork chops with mashed potatoes and white gravy. In August. I bought a roast for crock pot cooking this week, and we're supposed to get up into the 90's. I've been thinking a lot about what I want to get various people for Christmas, and when we saw The Time Traveler's Wife yesterday, I was all "Look! Snow! I wonder if we will have snow this year?"

Clearly, I've decided I'm done with summer, and mentally I'm already moving on to Fall/Winter.

The Time Traveler's Wife was really good, btw. I have no idea how it measures up to the book, as I haven't read it. But it was a really good movie. Very Somewhere in Time-esque, if you've ever seen that old love story with Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour.

Well, the Fall movie trailers sure are getting interesting!

Some favorites I've seen lately:

The Lovely Bones - Mark Walberg, Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon. Again, I haven't read the book, but the trailer looks like a really good film.

Where the Wild Things Are - beloved by many of us in our childhood, brought to amazing life on the big screen.

The Blind Side - Just watching the trailer made me cry. Also, I see "Academy Award" in Sandra Bullock's future.

Law Abiding Citizen - Gerard Butler, Jamie Foxx. Psychological thriller, looks good.

Sherlock Holmes - Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law - What's not to like??

For Fall TV, FX has a new show staring Timothy Olyphant (Yay!) called Lawman, which puts him playing a role we know he does well - a badass lawman.

It feels a bit autumnal here, too. Yesterday I found myself making a root vegetable and mushroom bake.

Yeah, I'm done with the heat myself. Even if it means I have to start back to school, bring on the fall. I'm so ready for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.:)

The movies all look really good and I cried too. *sniff*


PS - Did you see the sand panting video that xlana posted - that's AMAZING, and you'll cry.
