So after our happy
What I love best about The Capitol is its mix of new, independent/foreign, and old films. Over the years I've gone to the Capitol to see "Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," the Swedish version of "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" and on Friday Lindy and I went to see "The Godfather." That's right, Michael Corleone was kicking it in Cleveland this past weekend and it looks like he's still in town through Thursday.
I love "The Godfather" and have seen it many times but man there is just something about seeing a movie on the Big Screen. It's also one of the things I love about Playhouse Square and their Cinema on the Square program during the summer. Also cheap and tasty but in a totally different way.
(During the credits I turned to Lindy and said "I think actress Talia Shire [who played Corleone sister Connie] is Jason Schwartzman's mom." Upon coming home, I used my mad librarian skillz (ie: Google) and sure enough I was right. But I also found out that Talia is director Francis Ford Coppola's sister, which means she's Nicholas Cage's aunt (his father is Francis and Talia's brother), which makes Nick and Jason cousins. Talk about a family reunion I want to crash.)
Despite the fabulous dogs and tots and multitude of dipping sauces, I lost another 1.8 lbs this week. I'm sure Saturday's yoga class and that headstand helped. That brings my total to 69.8 pounds! I'm losing at about an average of 5 lbs a month, give or take, which means I could have that 100 lb tattoo by the end of the summer.
Talk about an offer I can't refuse.
Love from the ashes,
