New Blogs

Not long ago I started playing with some of the new widgets that Blogger created for the Beta setting. I think everyone has gone Beta by now, but if you haven't.. try it out. It allows you a lot more freedom to tweak template elements.

Also, I've added a category called Southern Tier Blogs. The list has been slowly growing, with the latest addition being Boon Island Blogger. I met that blog's writer, Chris, at the Chautauqua Leadership Network retreat last week. CLN will be taking up a lot of my free time this year, but hopefully I'll be able to blog about some of the things we'll be up to.

Movies You Can't Look Away From

There's a couple movies I can't stand to watch, but can't stand to turn the channel once I see that they're on. One of these movies is 'Til There Was You. While I was home on break in college, I would catch this flick while flipping between HBO, The Weather Channel, TLC, and The Discovery Channel. I found the script trite and the acting something to be desired, which resulted in a total effect of "ehn." And yet, this movie gave me one of my favorite lines that I co-opted for anytime I was sad or drama queening about the wasted landscape of love:

Gwen: "This is the part where your heart actually hurts."

I hate this film. I really do. And thanks to my Jeane Tripplehorn-look-alike-friend, Lynn, I now know the name of this movie and can promptly find a cheap, used DVD of it online so I can seethe at this abomination in the privacy of my own home.
