I'm Sailing Away

This evening was a quiet and relaxing one at home. Since I didn't have any homework to do and all that was on tv was a bunch of reruns (aka TV's equivalent of leftovers) I decided to watch a movie: Mona Lisa Smile.

It's actually a really good movie (in my opinion). Then again, I love most anything Julia Roberts does (except Lyle Lovett, what the f' was that about?). The story is a slightly atypical view of the feminist 50's in America. Instead of the feminist teacher coming and liberating all of the unenlightened students, she gets enlighted by the girls: "To you a housewife is someone who sold her soul for a center hall colonial. She has no depth, no intellect, no interests. You're the one who said I could do anything I wanted. This is what I want."

Anywho, that's enough enlightenment for one evening. I think I'm going to go put my head down and go to bed. Nite nite peeps. :-)

I always wondered how rosy that character's view of housewives would be after ten years of diapers and vacuuming.
