Get out the pop corn and cold drinks - settle in and watch a movie!
Jess and I watched a movie tonight that I thoroughly enjoyed. I remember seeing advertisements when it was coming out and knew I wanted to see this one. It starred Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr. "New in Town" - a film about a manufacturing plant in New Ulm MN and it portrayed us Minnesotans about as bad as was done in "Fargo"! It was about a large company sending one of their reps to a small town because they are going to restructure this manufacturing plant. Big city girl to small MN town and a bunch of small town, real people. A good entertaining movie.
Jess and I had a few good belly laughs! Especially when the star fell off the porch in a drunken stupor! - I couldn't stop laughing - Jess had to stop the movie to hear about the time I did the same thing. Think it had been a New Years party up at the Kivi's - opened the door, stepped out, fell off the steps and laid in the snow! I don't even remember getting out of the snow - terrible huh? Spose Steve had to help my sorry ass up! Plus he tells me I was sick all the way home - 9 miles. Yuk, that must have been terrible. If it wasn't New Year's, we must have been up there to play cards, etc. We haven't been in that party loop for a long time; maybe it's because I basically don't drink any more. Jess said she hadn't heard that story before. Your kids just don't need to know everything - right?
I could relate to several other things in the movie as well, but don't want to tell you all in case you haven't seen this movie. It was a hoot!
