“Dazed and Confused”, is how I feel some days, how I feel most mornings as I tumble into the shower and also the title of one of my favorite movies!
If you haven’t seen it, please go out and get it! It takes place over the course of one day in 1976, one very important day: THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL! It follows the lives of high school students, as juniors become seniors and jr. high students become the new freshmen.
The cast includes among other greats the wonderful and delicious to look at, Mr. Matthew McConaughey! The music is perfect. The clothes are fantastic! The cars are cool!
It is the perfect movie to watch on the last day of school, on the beginning of summer, on the eve of freedom and that is exactly what we did!
It was drizzling last night, so we couldn’t go outside for movie night, we just changed our plans and put the screen up in the house instead. Rigged the projector up on the couch, on top of a box my mom had sent me a package in. These are the days I know my grandpa is smiling at me, because it was some kind of crazy ingenious concoction he would have rigged and it worked!
We closed the curtains, turned off the lights, got our rice krispy treats ready and ice cold coke-colas and sat down to enjoy!
It was perfect! We had so much fun, we are going to do it again tonight and as soon as we have nice weather we are planning a little movie night in our parking lot with our neighbors, we are already going back and forth on what the first movie to watch should be, we are leaning toward something old and classic! Stay away rain, because I am ready for a movie night under the stars!
