What else is new.....well, I'm re-discovering my love of all things vintage and old fashioned. Not that it ever goes away, but sometimes other things take precedent. But since starting up here on Blogger, I've found an awesomely large community of folks who have the same love, and it's refreshing to know there's so many people out there that value and want to hang onto those vintage things worth preserving. Not that I get overly rose-colored-glasses over the past; I'm fully aware of the bad parts too. Civil and equal rights are something that was severely lacking in the "good ol' days," and I don't want to return to a time of bigoted ignorance. I don't think anyone who claims to love vintage does. But there's so much to celebrate of them "good ol' days" as well, and I commend anyone who is able to support the cause!
This week I've been able to expand my old movie collection, thanks to TCM and our trusty VCR. Yes, we still have to use a VCR to record stuff on the TV....sue me. :) I got to capture two Ginger Rogers movies I'd never seen before: Rafter Romance and 20 Million Sweethearts, both from 1934. They were absolutely delightful, of course! But I'm biased on the Ginger front. :) And, tonight I'm recording The Harvey Girls with Judy Garland, Here Comes the Groom with Bing Crosby, and Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn. Five new movies in one week for free....can't beat that!
Work is going well, and I even have a new piece of office furniture. No, it's not a plush leather recliner, much to my chagrin. It's merely a table with a hutch/shelf for the massive 3-ring binders that are now my life in my new position, but it fills the room up a little more and makes it feel a little more cozy. Well, as cozy as generic office furniture can be anyway! I'd much prefer something like this...
....but I'll take what I can get, as long as it keeps me employed!
That's it for now kiddo's....thanks for reading me, and all of your lovely comments!
