Not to assume, that is. How many freakin' times do I have to have my assumptions proved wrong before I quit making them in the first place?!!
This time around--I assumed I wouldn't like a particular movie. The Village. I remember when it first came out, and I wanted nothing to do with it. Well, Chris "assigned" me this movie for my happiness project. He was even so kind as to send me the movie! On top of all that, Annie had been dying to watch it. So on Friday night when Rich hauled the boys off to go ice skating, I decided the time had come. Annie and I had a mini girls' night. We popped it in...and much to my surprise, I was immediately taken with it. Slightly confused at first, but very intrigued. And wow. I totally ended up loving this movie!
Far-fetched? Maybe so, but I loved it anyway. :)
The only downside: Every time I see M. Night Shyamalan's name, I am reminded of the whitewashing of The Last Airbender. This still greatly saddens me. :(
Anyway, thank you so much, Chris!!! I really did know deep down that you wouldn't steer me wrong! :D God, I love this happiness project. :D
