thoughts for a friday.
yipee! it’s the long holiday weekend. gosh, i love long weekends — that extra day is something i personally think we could all use every darn week. i know i could do with that many days of r & r all the time. i think it’s much easier to have a mini holiday when you’ve got that additional day off, right? i seem to have the more rustic side of life on my mind these days — trips to the woods, family cabins, campouts. and if the great outdoors isn’t exactly your thing — some camping spots have gotten pretty fancy-schmancy (they like to call it ‘glamping’) so it’s more like luxury camping than roughing it. what have you got planned for the long weekend? you staying indoors, or heading out?
• moonrise kingdom is one of the great camp movies. you might already know how i feel about wes anderson, but this is director wes at his most sublime. as always, excellent casting and a nostalgic feeling that is spot on. the perfect movie escape if you’re not actually headed anywhere this weekend.
• or, maybe dirty dancing is more your kind of summer movie. i’ve always wanted to visit the adirondacks, or more specifically one of those summer camps for grownups like the one where the movie takes place. do they have places like that on the west coast? i think not. i wanna go somewhere where ‘nobody puts baby in the corner’.
• do you know that site cabin porn? it shares some of the most reclusive and cool cabins i’ve ever seen. from beach shacks to places that look like hobbit homes, i love daydreaming away on cabin porn (thanks luis for reminding me!).
whatever you do this weekend, have a blast!
