Looking Forward to Looking Back

Here’s a quick rundown of our honeymoon, which we divided between The Royal in Playa del Carmen and home, in list format, to make it appear more interesting than perhaps it was. We went back to work today, and we’ve both realized that we were neither made to work, nor to live in poverty. Pickle.

Movies We Watched: Stardust, Music and Lyrics, Waitress, The Nanny Diaries, Enchanted, National Treasure 2, Juno, Charlie Wilson’s War. There are amusing individual things I could tell you about all of those movies, like how we watched Stardust over drinks on the plane to Mexico, or how we broke out into an impromptu dance party in our living room to George Michael’s ‘Freedom’ after The Nanny Diaries, or how a bunch of guys were the ones to suggest seeing Enchanted, or how my high expectations for Juno left me a wee disappointed, or how crowded the theater was for Charlie Wilson’s War, because we saw it in DC, surrounded by policy wonks who ate up every Sorkin word, but this is a list, not a paragraph!
