Good morning, and welcome to The Sunday Salon, that virtual reading room where we gather and share tidbits about our week—reading, blogging, and life moments.
After the flurry of the Thanksgiving holiday, many of us are settling into the pre-Christmas rush. I avoided Black Friday, though. I’m not a fan of big crowds.
Yesterday I saw a movie that just came out here, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Love and Other Drugs stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, among others. The fascinating exploration of an unlikely romance that developed between two people who usually only enjoy flings was truly heartfelt. Anne’s character is a twenty-six year old woman suffering from early Parkinson’s Disease; Jake’s character is a pharmaceutical salesman at a time just before and after the release of the drug Viagra. Zoloft is on its upswing, competing against Prozac.
The time period is the late 1990s.
My youngest grandson Noah had a sleepover and helped me decorate for Christmas. Here is one of our creations.
I finished NaNoWriMo! Yay! And here’s the Winners’ Certificate.
