Good Movie Alert!

I just watched The Secret Life of Bees and can I just recommend it to everyone? Good, because I am.  Now, I haven't read the book, and I'm sure that there are some of you "book readers" that are going to sass me with a "the book was SO much better," in a nasally voice, but I say get the hence and see the movie.  I'm moving to the South anyways.  Chan is coming with me, so we'll have Ivor forward our letters.

I LOVE the book! I didn't know there was a movie. Is it fairly new? In theatres or for rent/purchase? (Good story, eh?)

Hey, Nate, where is it playing? I liked the book also, and I want to see the movie. Are you going to Olive Garden with us for salad and soup tomorrow night? 5:30. Meet at the Center and come with us. Is it playing in IF?

Beekeeping is a hobby I've always been interested in, especially after watching Rushmore.

1:01 AM?!? I'm going to find that source about double rest for hours slept before midnight. :)

I shouldn't post this now, because it's late, but...anyway

"Go to bed early. The hours of sleep you get before midnight are worth double while the hours of sleep you get after 12:00a.m. are only half."

There's debate considering the greater effect of one's body having a consistent time clock, but I believe this before-midnight stuff too. :) This is the last night I'm a hypocrite.

Hahahahaha. You're so funny. I can't believe you dare lecture about getting to bed early--even adding sources--when you're up typing away at the same time I am. Ohhhhhh, we are sinners and need to repent.

I don't think that blog.home-remedies.com is a legitimate source to be quoting.

Sky said...

I don't think any of us can think clearly at this hour and find it funny that we think we can. Katie started with quotations from the Word of Wisdom, which is a pretty hefty source. Go to sleep. Whatsa matter with you?

Katie said...

My intention wasn't to lecture, but to keep the promise of a previous conversation--that I'd find the source. Hahaha... And yeah, I'm sure I could find a better source...I still believe it though.

Nathan, you should read the book. If you liked the movie, I'm sure you'll like the novel.

Olive Garden and Secret Life of Bees sounds wonderful. I wish I could be there.

Love the book. Sue Monk Kidd is gifted with portraying emotion through strong images. I haven't seen the movie yet, but it's on my list.
