I was able to get out and see Becoming Jane. Sighhh, I have struggled what to write about it. The best description for this movie is a really wonderful piece of chocolate with a fake filling. My complaint about this movie is basically the same one I had about the Miss. Potter movie. Too much romance and not enough of these wonderful ladies lives. I mean is all they have done and who they are just boiled down to a romantic story. And this case a story that we have not a clue even happened (from what little I know about Miss. Austin, she danced with this man 3 times) If this move had been pure fiction, I would have loved it and cried my eyes out. But instead the whole time I keep thinking, they do not know that happened. I refuse to give my heart to a movie that so embellishes the truth.
But I will say it is beautiful, very English and like a perfect bon-bon (except of the lacking imperfections I mentioned above). So I do think everyone should see it and enjoy what there is to enjoy. But I am hoping Hollywood will begin to think more of women and their accomplishment and realize they do not have to only give us frosting, fake frosting at that. We want cake. Pretty, yummy but real cake !!!!!!!

Dear Lisa at Pink Paint and Rosesawarded me the Power of Schmooze award.
"The Power of Schmooze Award is for bloggers who effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship."
Thank you Debi and Lisa, you are both such kind and thoughtful ladies. I really appreciate that you even thought of me, let alone thought I was deserving. I know I am suppose to award others, but I am too overloaded with life right now to try to pick someone. It is always soo hard, I love all of you and hate to try to narrow it down. So I think you are all schmooze and are very nice xoxoxoxo
