I saw the new Great Gatsby movie trailer last night. First of all, I can’t believe that I am old enough for Leonardo Decaprio to be playing a “mature” adult. What the hell? And second, Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books EVER. That movie was perfect. Robert Redford, Mia Farrow, Sam Waterston? PERFECT! I’m dubious of a remake. Would they remake Gone with the Wind? I think not. Sigh! Well I have to wait until December to find out. I’m gonna reread (again) this summer.
Only a week or so til school is out. After Memorial Day, what’s the point people? I can already feel my toes in the sand and the island sun on my face. I can’t wait to take my Hipstamatic for a snapping good time on the coast! On the last day of school, I have a tradition: embarrassing my daughter. I drive up to school BLARING Will Smith’s Summertime with a big grin on my face, windows down. BOOMING! Then I make her listen to the High School Musical School’s Out, Scream and Shout song (as I sing very, very loudly). She yells at me from the back seat. Ah, the memories.
2) Standup Paddleboarding on the coast
4) Grits and Groceries. A very awesome restaurant. Look it up.
5) Take my daughter to the Columbia Zoo to draw the animals.
6) Lake with Griets.
7) Plane ticket to Cali.Wow! I really had to think on that one! What’s on yours?
