THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY:
http://waltermittymovie.tumblr.com/
In this comedic adaptation of James Thurber's short story, Ben Stiller stars as Walter, a milquetoast proofreader for a magazine publishing firm. Walter is constitutionally incapable of standing up for himself, so he retreats into his fantasy world, where he is heroic, poised, self-assured, and the master of his fate. Stiller directed from a script by Steven Conrad, with Kristen Wiig, Patton Oswalt, and Shirley MacLaine rounding out the starring cast.

Join me for dinner, movie, or dessert or all three!! :)

    I enjoyed hosting this event--thanks to the ladies who braved the extreme cold weather and joined me! Mongolian Grill and the movie was really good--best of all was the wonderful conversation and company of the ladies!! We will have to do this again when the weather is better so more can join in. If anyone ever has a movie suggestion for SS Works..let me know. Maybe we can try Claddaugh's next time. It's right next door to the theater and of course, Cheesecake Factory after the movie for dessert!!

    Elizabeth I too will have to cancel tonight because of the weather---can't be out in those temps. I really like the idea and hope you continue to have them. It's a nice night out.

    I really do want to get to one of these movie nights. But with the negative temps predicted, I think I'm staying in for the night.

    January 6, 2014

    • Elizabeth

      Hope to see you at one of the future events--I will likely plan another movie night next Monday as well. The weather is supposed to be in the 40's next week!!

  • Denise G

    Hey...I don't know if I am going to make it afterall. My car is acting strange and I have no desire to walk to catch a bus to Charleroi in that cold to have to deal with it the next day....especially, since my kneesurgery was only two weeks ago. I am changing my rsvp to no but if I can make it I will call you. Tank you!

    • Elizabeth

      I totally understand! If I only lived closer, I would pick you up.

      Helena, thanks for letting us know and for updating your rsvp--that really makes it so easy for us to keep track of everyone. We will miss not having your there but I'll continue to plan these for us :)
