movie watching

over my vacation, i watched 4 movies:

  • juno (i know, way overdue)
  • penelope (fab chick flick to share with girls of all ages)
  • miss pettigrew lives for a day (favorite of the week-a must have dvd when it releases)
  • death at a funeral (i laughed a lot but i don’t recommended for those who don’t like british humor, can’t laugh at dysfunctional families or are easily offended)
