Remember when...? was a color, not a movement had to get off the sofa to change the channels
...when you dialed a phone you actually had to "dial" the phone
...MTV played music videos, not reality shows
...there was no MTV
...movies had plots, not special effects
...James Bond was the only guy on earth with a phone in his car had to go actual miles to get coffee order to get money you had to actually go into the bank
...sitcoms were funny'd actually heard of the people on the covers of magazines

Yeah, I'm getting old.

Photo of the day: The Snack Shack

It's been raining a lot lately. So when I feed the feral cats in our backyard I don't put food in the open dish. I put it in our little cat house. Here it is, open for business. It keeps the food dry, which the kitties appreciate, plus it's just dang cute. (Thanks to my beloved ex-husband for making it.)

From the kitten nursery.

Sorry I've been so silent lately. Life has gotten in the way. Everything is fine, but a bit stressful all-round for many people in my world so I've been a bit preoccupied. The kittens, however, are a definite high point.

What is your captured movie? The one film that can always snare you in when you see it on TV. You're flipping the channels or searching the guide and suddenly BAM there is it. That one film you can always watch -- no matter how late you tun into the film. You'll watch. Oh you know you will.

You've seen in probably a dozen or more times and yet it still calls to you. For some people their Captured Movie is a a fairly recent production usually preceded by the phrase "cult following," I can't tell you the number of people I know for whom The Big Lebowsky has reached iconic standing.

For me? I prefer the classics. I am physically incapable of turning off Casablanca. I don't care where it is in the movie or where I am in life. If it's. I'm hooked. Same for Singing in the Rain, Charade, and The Philadelphia Story.

I can quote the dialogue word for word (much to the annoyance of my friends) and pratcically get giddy when I see these old favorites on TV. So what films have the same effect on you? Please tell me I'm not along in my movie loyalty.
