Have a  blessed Thanksgiving, everyone! Cherish the memories with your family and enjoy the delicious feast.
I am thankful for everything, including my awesome writerly friends. With that said, see you all after the long weekend.


  1. Thankful for you, Livia!
    I've seen the original Old Boy. Disturbing and gory film.
    Seeing Frozen this evening.
    Have a great Thanksgiving!

  2. The original Oldboy is one of my favorites. Brilliant. Will be watching the remake just out of curiosity, but it can't possibly be better.

  3. Livia if it weren't for you, I'd never know what's in the theaters. Glad there are some kiddo movies out there. Holidays wouldn't be the same without a couple hokey kid-flicks! Happy holidays to you. :)

  4. Happy Thanksgiving! My sister and I plan to see Frozen tomorrow. I can't wait!

  5. Happy Thanksgiving. I'm seeing Catching Fire this weekend and Frozen sometime in December.

  6. Hi Livia! I don't think I"ve ever visited your blog before...just interacted on facebook. I can't wait to see 'Catching Fire.' I've heard such great things about it. I daresay I'll get to see it for free on the plane as I fly overseas next week!

    Thanks for the heads up for the movies. I know you're a real fan!


  7. I haven't been to the movies in ages. We generally rent the older ones. But I think we will go to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

  8. Will have to take the kids to see Frozen. :)
