Technically- a twofer….
To Watch: Ok- Here are my shows: Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, Will and Grace. Modern Family (I like sit coms) and This is Us. I am going to try A Million Little Things. Will discuss any of these any time you want
To Listen: Obsessed with “A Star is Born Soundtrack” especially “Shallow” and “Is that All Right”
To Do: Apple Picking. We prefer Apple Dave’s Orchard in Warwick NY. There was not as big a selection this year, and is was so muddy my sneakers are toast, but the apples are outstanding. Don’t ask me what variety- they’re red and yummy. And made a delicious pie.
To Watch: “The Wife” Amazing Glenn Close performance. Well done all around
To See: The Museum at FIT- exhibits. “Fashion Unraveled” and “Pink: The History of Punk, Powerful, Pretty Color” Both exhibits amazing (come on- they’re fashion) Pictures to follow shortly
To Read: “Little Fires Everywhere” Celeste Ng Good book. Good author. Interesting handling of subject matter. I think it would be a good book club book.
To See: I love short films, which can normally only be found at Film Festivals. I attended NYFF at Lincoln Center and saw Program 2, which was a screening of five short films, followed by a Q and A with Five of the directors. My fave was “Key. Washer, Coin” by Alan Segal. I think short films are the most innovative things in film. When done well, they are thought provoking and mesmerizing. I also saw “Words, Planets”, “Life after Love”, “I Hope I’m Loud When I’m Dead” and “The Air of the Earth in Your Lungs”
To Do: Escape the Room- Escapegames. John Doe. Our neighbor was apparently a serial killer. Good thing is, we escaped the room with literally no time left. I don’t care. We did it. I love these things. There’s a subscription box that sends you a puzzle box every month so you can do these things at home. I covet this gift. And I don’t ever covet gifts.
To Read: “The Story of Arthur Truluv” Elizabeth Berg This was just a sheet story.
Reality: College marketing has now extended to University students calling prospective students and leaving voicemails. My daughter has received a lot. She couldn’t figure out one of the colleges on one of the voicemails though. She thought it sound like “S&M” school and was wondering exactly what list she was on…When I listened to the message I realized that it was “F&M” as in Franklin and Marshall… So there you go…
