Um...yes please. Pull yourself together, Allison!
So I walked over to Tower City with Cortney on Thursday to watch "Nesting" which was about an early 30-something couple who were trying to back to how they used to be by revisiting their past lives. It was pretty entertaining, laugh out loud at some parts and did I mention the lead actor was adorable. So damn cute.

I think I speak for all the girls when I say - we laughed our f'ing asses off to that woman. She owned that theater, strutting up and down the stage like she was running a marathon in her floor length magenta glitter robe "kicking" out all the Chinese, old and handicapped people, mocking her celebrity friends, accusing the woman in the front of sleeping with her husband and getting on the floor to mimic sexual positions. I hope to have her energy at 78.

I mean, let's get real, I have seven weeks to build up to 13.1 miles and the farthest I've ran so far was only 5 miles.
Can I do it? Abso-freaking-lutely.
Even with cooler temps and a little drizzle of rain, we completed our run in 1 hour and 2 minutes and we both felt pretty good post run and agreed to meet again next weekend. Strangely enough, it's a hell of a lot easier to run with someone and makes the time go back so much quicker too. This all coming from someone who prefers to run by herself mostly because if I break into song midway, no one can hear me, you know....
I recouped after the long run and invited another fashion-loving friend to attend another CIFF movie - Diana Vreeland - and OMG how I loved everything about it. Truth be told, I didn't know a whole hell of a lot about Diana or her contributions to Harper's Bazaar but was instantly intrigued by the movie to learn more about this lovely woman and added her autobiography, D.V., to my reading list.

Here's to only 10 more days with glasses and a quick trip to NYC this week - oh, it's been too long New York!
And a big thank you to all readers who voted me through to the next round of the Cleveland Magazine blogger brackets - it's the final four and here's the link to vote again if you want to vote again.... Just sayin'!
Disclosure: CIFF offered me two complimentary tickets to see a movie of my choice. Get out and go see a movie - you won't be disappointed! P.S. You may want to check out my friend Keith's film, King Me, this coming Thursday too, if you don't have plans.
