I got a chance to see it last night with my great friend Darcy. We have a tradition of reading books and then watching the films together. We have seen/read Atonement, The Time Traveler's Wife, My Sister's Keeper, The Lovely Bones, and many more I am not remembering right now. But it is a tradition I look forward to.
I enjoyed the movie, but it was no where near as memorable to me as the novel. I have a lot of reasons why, but since this is "primarily" a blog about clean eating and working out...I'll refrain! :)
I do want to share some highlights of the night:
1. Spending time with my best friend.
2. Silently playing words with friends for about 15 minutes. It's all about being scholarly.
|What has 6 letters and starts with TH?|
4. Me falling UP the stairs of the theatre on the way back from the bathroom.
5. These guys below.
I happen to think that intellectual health is closely tied to overall health and well-being. I think challenging your mind through reading, thoughtful discussion, or a scrabble game on your phone is key to longevity. Seriously....Words with Friends...good stuff! (Although I still discount the validity of certain words like HAJ, DI, ZA, MIS, ect..)
Your brain needs a workout too and there is a plethora of research that supports that. So lift a weight or lift a book...both are good for you!
What's the last great book that you read?
Love and paper cuts,
