Philadelphia Story in Omaha

 Nothing ever possibly in the least ever happens here. Mother, how do you get smallpox?

 To prove my inner and sometimes outer “nerdom” I have checked something off my Bucket List:
To my all-time favorite film “The Philadelphia Story” in a theater. CHECK!
Better yet, to see it with people whom I love, CHECK! 
This was an early birthday celebration for me. 
Again, what NERD would have an early birthday celebration for themself? 
This nerd. 
I gathered my sister, brother in law, and hub’s together to make the two-hour drive to see this film. My brother in law is not a black and white film fan so it was even more special that he agreed to go. 
The theater was a small independent place that was decorated amazingly. Complete with a Lionel Barrymore & Orsen Wells autograph among others on the wall, posters, and great little murals. The theater only seated 100 and I was sad to see it didn’t fill up. Shame, Shame people! It went off without a hitch….well nearly. The projector got jammed and burned the film. For you other film lovers, you can imagine how it was physically painful for me to witness. Besides that the company was great, the pop filled with crack (lol) was amazing and the popcorn delicious.  
I plan to donate many dollars to this theater and visit more often! 
It was a blast. Here is your personal photo tour of one of the most fun nights I have had! Enjoy!

TCM Film Festival where to eat

Guys, we have roughly eight weeks to go until the Turner Classic Film Festival, can you believe it? (UPDATED Feb. 2020 in time for my 5th Festival!) To some, the festival has become second nature or something you just do, a right. For some of us, it's still this surreal, magical experience that we have to save every extra nickel we earn so we can attend. The moment I get home from the festival, I'm counting the days down until the next one. It's what I look forward to most all year long. This year will be my third trip to Hollywood for the TCM Film Festival, and it still feels like my first time. Eight weeks out and I still have butterflies in my stomach. I’m excited, and as I write this my heart beats faster and harder as I think about what films they have yet to announce,  Wuthering Heights  perhaps? Possibly,  Gone With the Wind ? Probably not, they ran that a few years back, before I could afford to attend, dang. Before my first trip in 2016 I researched so

Corona food post - Chihuahuas.

I found this graphic on Pinterest. I don't own the rights. This seems to be what the OG Chihuahuas looked like.  This past weekend my Aunt, Uncle, and mom made a Chihuahua kit for our family for lunch. My Aunt and uncle make the best Chihuahua’s.  I’ve had them for as long as I can remember. Growing up, we had them from time to time, but as an adult, I have made sure we have them for dinner at least once a month.  This meal is among one of my all-time favorites, and I gorge myself silly each time I make it. In 1951 this spectacular ‘sandwich’ was invented in a kitchen in Lubbock, Texas.   The Chihuahua Sandwich was created by the husband-wife team of Ed and Sarah Noret to add to their Drive-In Theater concession stand. The sandwich was such a hit that locals in this West Texas town would flock to the Sky-Vue Drive-In Theater to pick up a few of these ‘sandwiches’ and leave without seeing the movie.  They say the Chihuahuas worked at the Drive-In because they are uniq
