Tonight I watched The Mighty Ducks, a movie I remember watching on video in college. It was an odd night--a girl I barely knew from the Christian fellowship on campus invited me to hang out with her. We got take-out? and went to the the video store, where she asked me had I seen MD and I said, no, and she said, "oh, you gotta see this!" I don't remember that we became best buds or that we even hung out after that night. But I was in a funk, and the Ducks got me out of it. It was actually my introduction to hockey, a sport I now love. I would put The Mighty Ducks in the category of movies that can cheer me up, no matter what:
The Mighty Ducks
Adventures in Babysitting (Which I can't believe I don't own.)
The Full Monty
So here are three beautiful things for today:
- A beer with the Mighty Ducks--quack quack quack
- Snow--I'm crazy, and I don't enjoy driving in it anymore than the next guy, but it is beautiful.
- My sister is back online!! (She's been down with a nasty flu for the past week.)
