First Friday Night of 2014!

How did you spend your first Friday night of the New Year??

A MSNBC reporter reminded me at work that this was the first Friday night of the new year! And of course, since I am embracing the whole 'new year, new beginning' thing this new years season ... I got nervous. Does what I do tonight set the tone for all friday nights this year?! Should I go out with my friends even though having a night in alone sounds like the best thing ever??

I am only semi-embarrassed to admit that when I got home from work at 7pm I sat on my couch watching movies until 3 am. But, with "feels like 4" temperatures, a semi-serious hope of cleaning my room, and staying up too late too many nights in a row, can you blame a girl for staying in?

It turned out to be just what I needed.

Gave myself a glitter manicure IMG_4254

Taught myself a new knitting pattern (who knew knitting patterns existed? And that they are in codes like "R3,1btpl") IMG_4260

& watched the following movies:

"Une femme est une femme"  (A woman is a woman) Une femme est une femme

I heart huckabees (How have I not seen this before?! The universe must not have wanted me to see it until 2014, of course) 220px-I_Heart_Huckabees_poster

I couldn't have asked for a better first Friday night of the year. Sometimes you just need a relaxing night of good, thought provoking movies to make you reevaluate, and look at the world a little differently.

Other movies that have shaped my 2014 world view thus far:

Tim and Eric's billion dollar movie (I live with boys) MV5BMTU0NTQ5NDYwMV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNjUzNzUxNw@@._V1_

I give it a year i-give-it-a-year

Frances Ha frances_ha_xlg

Favorite movie of the year as of January 5 goes to...

FRANCES HA

(not surprising since my sister suggested it) If anyone is interested, Frances Ha will be my inspiration for 2014.

Runner up:

A Woman is a woman.

it's beautiful, and perfect, and everyone should watch it.
