eat, pray, kiss

Yesterday was a great day.

I woke up and did my laundry (not so fun but important, of course) and then I came home and immediately changed for my dance class. After a fun class, I headed back to the 42nd Street subway stop in Times Square and came upon this:

Unfortunately, this is not my photo as I didn't have my camera on me and my cell phone is from the Dark Ages. The statue reminds me of this one in San Diego:

Nope. Didn't take this one either. I do have photos of it though from a couple of years ago but they are on my old computer.

I also saw Eat, Pray, Love this weekend. I didn't particularly care for the book and, without spoiling it for those who haven't seen it, the movie was (of course) a Hollywood-ized version of the book. Made it look so easy to just pick up one's life and live for a year in three different countries while meeting wonderful people along the way. No culture shock. No other issues that aren't anything but emotional ties to one's past. The whole thing was so glamorized (not that I expected anything different) that I'm sure many a "housewife" tonight is wondering why she didn't do that before settling down.

Tomorrow is another week. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I want to see the movie (even though I have heard it's so-so). Glad you had a great weekend!

Well, this girl is no housewife...but let me just tell you...after the last few months I'm trying to figure out how I can go to Italy and Bali. I'll skip the meditation in India, thank you. Of course...that's probably the part that would serve me best :(

I tried to reply to your comment, but it did that no-reply blogger nonsense.

Anyway, you and about 5 of my other girlfriends said that about the housewives :) It made me laugh. Because I just bet there ARE a bunch of unhappy housewives eating bon bons and reading that book (and now watching the movie) thinking "I want/need to do that!!" And heaven help them..they probably do. But who has the money for that? I, however, am no housewife (have a house, but no hubby) and I want/need to do it. to come up with the cash!

P.S. Finding the love of my life on said "self introspective trip" would be lovely as well :-o

So want to see this film, but, even from the previews, it seems to look far too easy to just pick up and leave on a year-long excursion.
