Tradition! Tradition!....new ones, old ones.

I love to watch movies. I have so many favorites I could hardly choose just one - or ten. The other night I was enjoying watching some movies with my honey and found a reference to President's Day in Coraline - yep, they were having a sale on school uniforms in this movie and we just happened to be watching it on President's day - so now it is our President's Day Holiday movie. I don't know if anyone else has a tradition like we do - we have certain movies that we watch corresponding to certain holidays. Like Groundhog Day...on, well, you can figure that one out.
Some movies are just feel good movies like Mama Mia or Music and Lyrics or Hairspray (new version, not the Riki Lake version) and can be watched anytime.
But, with a new healthier lifestyle it seems like too much sitting around. Apparently other people think so too - that is why one woman took movie watching healthier level by combining it with a marathon. That's right, a marathon of movies and a marathon of walking on the treadmill. She did the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy while walking. I think it is a great idea to get exercise while doing an otherwise sedentary activity. here is the link (you may have to copy and paste it into your browser) http://www.themarysue.com/lotr
I find the idea inspiring. Anyway, I am rambling today. We are bracing for a winter storm so I got all the groceries we might need for the immediate future and mom is doing her shopping today to beat that storm. My mom's computer has been in the shop so she is going to get it back today and I bet that will make her happy (if somewhat less productive than she has been without it). I am in the same boat - too much computer time and not enough productive time, so I'm one to talk.
I must get myself to bed. Have a great day Sparkers!
