I Decided To Watch This And Not Cry...

...so perfectly determined to hold it together, I pushed play. Now, just watch this, and report back:



...aaaaaaaaaaaaand I'm a loser. Stupid lions.

(oh and incidentally, Sony Pictures is currently in negotations to buy the rights to the dudes' 1972 book "A Lion Called Christian." I saw this on The Today Show, so it's real. Isn't it so rad?)

Also if you want to see what I saw on the Today Show, go HERE and if you want to see the original piece and the entire "reunion" go HERE. (only 6 minutes long, but still amazing)

This weekend we didn't end up going to Park City, but we did go downtown to the theater that shows independent films ( we love that darn place! woot! ) and saw an english subtitled french film called Ne le dis a personne (Tell No One) . It was pheeeeeeeenomenal. I wish all movies in the US were like it, what happened to the film industry here? Seriously though. Anyway, our anniversary isn't til Wednesday, so we just hung out here with a sick baby and celebrated Mackenzie's bday! I'll do her Birthday Post later!

the end.

Oh, and I cried. Shocker. Stupid lion. Oh, and just so you know, I am going to have 976 of them living in my mansion above and sleeping in my bed. Ok, bye.
