New iPhone 6 in Hand

Punch dropped my iPhone last week and the screen shattered. Fortunately, I had owned it for a while and was eligible for an upgrade. Love it so far. About to listen to the Alec Baldwin podcast about Andy Warhol now. Prayers all around. Good night.

Rolling: Learning to Drive

We couldn't get a sitter tonight for planned dinner and a movie. Disappointing, but after H. got back from a jog, I dashed out alone--I hadn't been to the big screen in a while. H. was good enough to stay home with Punchy and unlodge the tiny, silvery baking pan from her Easy-Bake Oven so she could bake the Party Pretzel Dippers [they bought 2 mixes at Target today].

This movie was showing in one of the small screening rooms at the Clairidge Movie Theater in Montclair. I was late and I think I got the last seat--in the front left row. Only 5 seats in the row, and I was in the middle, with two women on my left and an older couple on my right. Did feel self-conscious eating my small popcorn because we were pretty much arm to arm.

But what a film! Laughs and laughs, and feelings of was just light and beautiful. Nice look at NYC and Queens; impeccable tailored styles on the main character. Plus: A look at arranged marriages. I adored the two star turns by Patricia Clarkson and Ben Kingsley.

I have to go to bed. H. is down the street with his buddies watching baseball now, and our little friend will be up sooner than we like.

Good night
