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.
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.
