a film

Not as sentimental as it sounds. Starring the wonderful Annette Bening. Mother and Child is a drama centred around three women: A 50-year-old woman, the daughter she gave up for adoption 35 years ago, and an African American woman looking to adopt a child of her own.

a quote

While enthusiasts and detractors will continue to empty entire dictionaries attempting to describe or deride it, “authenticity” still remains the word most likely to stir a debate.
opening line to Danielewski's, House of Leaves


Well, Miss 3 and I are flying out in about 5 hours (the Mr comes in a week), arriving in England at a nice time of 3pm.

Hope to be around in just a couple of days. If not, it'll be Monday. Don't forget the give-away, and please comment again if you blogged about it.

See you soon friends!
