It's Always Summer Here

So, apparently it’s going to snow. Or so I keep hearing. It’s like a production of Chicken Little around here.

I’ll reserve my thoughts on snow until it actually appears, but I can say for a fact that it’s pretty frick-fracking cold out there. And in my office. So, despite my love of the wintery times, I’m looking forward to a seasonal shift.

Unfortunately, speeding such things up is outside my skill set (yet. I’m not giving up on late onset magical powers), so I’m going with the next best thing – summer movies.

Here are my top five I-Wish-It-Was-Summer Comfort Movies (not surprisingly, most come from my childhood. Ah, nostalgia):

  • Now and Then

Spending a summer with your best friends, researching murder mysteries and trying to earn money for a bitchin’ tree house? Sign me up.

  • The Babysitter’s Club

Lost count of the number of times I played Babysitter’s Club with my sister and our friends. I do know that when this movie came out I was the happiest nine year old on the planet.

  • The Sandlot

I’d like to see some of these clowns play ball against Roberta. But Benny the Jet is totally still a legend.

  • Heavyweights

My sister and I still regularly cancel the other one's lunch due to lack of hustle.

  • Dirty Dancing

I mean….come on.

Now, go, spend tonight watching some fun tales of the warmer season. Turn the heat up high enough, you’ll almost feel like you’re there.


  1. these are all awesome movies. Unfortunately I've only watched Dirty Dancing.

    1. You should definitely check out the rest. Great way to spend an afternoon. =)
