War Horse — This week I went to see War Horse at the Boston Opera House. I bought the tickets back in the summer when they first went on sale, so I was able to get seats in the second row! The story is incredible, and even though the show ran almost 3 hours, I was completely immersed in every second of it. And because I was so close, I could really see all the detailed and perfectly timed movements of the puppeteers. I completely fell in love with Joey (the horse) and had tears streaming down my face several times that night. It was so awesome.
Witness: HBO Documentaries — “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.” This four-part series about war photographers is going to be amazing. Make sure you watch the trailer and set your DVR for November 5.
Feedly App — With 350+ blogs in my Google Reader, my eyes start crossing with all that text after about the 20th line. Feedly (which you can also use online) changes all that. “A news reader for creative minds,” it organizes your blogs into much more digestible bits and is beautifully visual. I find it also really easy to manage.
Tigers in Red Weather — My book club will be discussing it this week! Set mostly on Martha’s Vineyard, the story is told from five different points of view. A murder is at the heart of the story, which had me flipping the pages one after the other! If you are looking for an engaging pageturner, grab this one.
Berlin Festival of Lights — Das festival ends today, but some year I would love to go see it. I’ve been loving the images coming from the flickr group here.
My pale blue leather desk chair arrived! — I cannot tell you how much I love it! This has become my favorite spot in the house. The Mr. seems to be stopping by quite a bit, if only to listen to some music, like yesterday’s Overcast mix.
Moonrise Kingdom — I FINALLY saw it! And I just wanted to dive into it and swim around there on the island of New Penzance. The styling! Wow. Oh, and I’m pretty sure I had this outfit during my obsessive LL Bean phase.
I WORE SHORTS AND FLIP FLOPS YESTERDAY!! — It was in the mid 70s here in Boston. Yipppeeee!!!
