A few little things that have made me smile over the past few days:

1. Today I saw a man that my parents know. I've met him before, and he has always seemed strangely familiar to me, but I couldn't quite figure it out. Then today, as soon as I saw him, it hit me: he looks like Frank Sinatra. Older Sinatra (see below). A lot like him. And he even has a northern accent (what we call a Yankee accent around here :), like Frankie. When I explained this to my dad, he laughed but admitted that it's true.

P.S. I love Frank Sinatra. I don't think I've talked about him too much lately. Maybe I'll do a post about him soon.

2. When we ran into the grocery store today, they were playing a She & Him song over the speakers. Totally unexpected, but a pleasant surprise.

3. Audrey Hepburn. Most specifically in How to Steal a Million, which I finally saw the other day and loved! I'll probably do a post about it after I watch it again (soon).

Audrey is so gorgeous. Even with the odd 60s hair. For a long time, I've had a sort of prejudice against the 1960s. It was a kind of strange decade, right? I've never been into the hippie/"peace"/drug-related/rebellious aspects of the culture that I've always associated with the 60s. But I think I'm slowly overcoming my dislike for that decade by realizing that those years weren't all about those things. Some really good music and movies came out of the 60s, anyway, and sometimes I have a weird craving for a movie that is obviously from that quirky era.

Until next time,


  1. Oh how I adore Frank Sinatra. Meeting someone who reminded me of him would rock my world, congrats on the happy circumstance. ALSO, I am SO HAPPY you saw How to Steal a Million, can't wait to read your thoughts!

  2. I have YET to see How to Steal a Million though it's been on my To Do List for years. I guess I know nothing will ever compare to Charade and don't want to hurt HTSAM's feelings. Putting that on my Summer Bucket List though. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. Frank Sinatra is a big favorite of mine. I love listening to his songs.

    Glad to saw How to Steal a Million. I've only seen it once myself, but I really enjoyed it. I love Audrey Hepburn.

  4. I love Frank Sinatra's music! I just finished My Father's Daughter, the memoir of Tina Sinatra, Frank Sinatra's youngest daughter. An interesting glimpse into the life of F.S. :)
