    "One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see." John 9:1-41
We're officially one of those families. The type with an extremely loud child that has to sit at the back of the church and go for frequent laps just to burn off energy. Remy's cute bird noises have turned into ear piercing screams. Like SCREAMING for joy at the top of her lungs. It's cute when we're at home, but not so much during a long and serious Catholic service. Then when I try to cover her mouth with my hand she licks me. Honestly, Geoff and I can't complain. We actually have to stifle our laughs. We were truly blessed with such an amazing girl. I prayed for her for such a long time, and my prayers were answered. And then some. 
Also, it is the anniversary weekend of her and her cousin's baptism (@abighousefull). What a special time of year. Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday!

talkie thursdays.

clue (1985).

title_clue_blu-ray_large_clue_blu-ray_1xlarge_clue_blu-ray_02large_clue_blu-ray_07large_clue_blu-ray_05shot0071_originalshot0072_original ‘talkie thursdays’ is a series that i am continuing from our first blog.

why? well because it is fun to write about old films, of course!

given that this is the first talkie on hello scarlett, choosing one was absolutely no contest. i decided to go with my favorite talkie of all time.

clue is a cult film that was based on the classic murder mystery game by the parker brothers. it features miss scarlett (lesley ann warren), mrs. peacock (eileen brennan), mrs. white (madeline kahn), colonel mustard (martin mull), professor plum (christopher lloyd), and my favorite, mr. green (michael mckean). written by  john landis and jonathan lynn, they created a role for tim curry as wadsworth the butler. additional characters that were invented include mr. boddy, the maid, and the cook.

clue has everything that i enjoy in a movie. it has comedy and mystery, it has a gothic revival mansion with secret passages, enormous rooms, and gorgeous period furniture (art history major, anyone?), it takes place in the 1950s (thus retro clothing, cars, and attitudes), it takes place over a few hours so it has the feeling of being based on a play, and in keeping with the variation of the game, it features three different endings!

so ladies and gents, here is clue in 52 seconds. :-)
