  • It’s not that the folks in Hollywood aren’t trying to make romance movies these days; it just seems they’ve forgotten how to make good ones.

    “Labor Day” has all the right pieces to make a good romance, but loses something in the middle.

    The movie falls somewhere between a romantic chick flick and a coming-of-age film. The story might have been more impactful if it had just been one or the other.

  • I’m thinking about starting a support group for clothes: Socks Without Partners.

    You see, our household is not unlike many others where socks somehow magically lose their partners. I heard a theory once that every now and then, one sock explodes in the dryer to make lint.

    I’m not buying it.

    I think the missing sock was a heel and it just got cold feet, running off and leaving his or her partner alone to take care of their family of little footies.
