Ok, ok, ok, so it’s 10 days into September and I’ve been totally 12MOL MIA. I know, I know…so, what’s the deal?
Well, what happened was that I started a new challenge for September and about 3 days into it I realized it was kind of a flop. I knew going into it that it was going to be a total hit or miss and, well—it was a miss. Hey, you win some you lose some, right? Moving on…
So, what now? I considered taking a month off but I decided to ask around to see if anyone had any cool ideas for me. The winner? Mr. Dan Kaplan for suggesting a “movie challenge”.
This probably sounds way too easy, right? Not if you’re Danne Dzenawagis. When I meet new people, there’s 2 things that I can say that immediately make them dislike me:
Thing #1: “I hate movies”
Thing #2: “I hate dogs”
Ok, so hate is a strong word and it isn’t entirely true in this case. I don’t hate movies, I just hardly ever watch them because I have the attention span of a goldfish, and I don’t actually hate dogs, I generally just dislike about 99% of them. And I mean, who needs a dog when you have a cat that’s the size of one?
But anyways, my challenge this month is to finally suck it up and watch a bunch of the movies that I definitely should have seen at some point in my life. This list was complied over the weekend at our friend Kelly’s house with the help of a bunch of movie buffs, including the Sullivan Sisters, who really thought long and hard about what was and wasn’t important for me to see based on the list of the 12 movies that I actually have seen.
So, here they are, the 10 movies that I will be watching over the next 21 days. Don’t make fun of me, I’ve never seen any of these. And please don’t suggest more, watching this many movies in a month is kind of torturous, this is already way more than I can handle.
1. Citizen Kane
2. Usual Suspects
3. Pulp Fiction
4. Fight Club
6. Say Anything
8. Animal House
9. Legends of the Fall
10. Top Gun
Thank god there’s only 21 days in this challenge, and thank god it’s knitting season again so I have something to do while I have to sit through all these. Movie party anyone?
