After a crazy day of storms yesterday, today is really beautiful! Crazy windy and a little too cool to open the windows, but nice all the same.

Mrs CB is currently performing in the final show of her play. Glad she will be beginning her spring break without that particular committment. While she is acting away, I am making my first meal in the Le Creuset- my chicken breast for burritos. Chicken, chili-ready tomatoes, onions, roasted red peppers-slow baking away. Smells delicious!! I'll add corn for the last half-hour and then shred up the chicken. Serve with tortillas, avacado and sharp Cabot cheddar. And possibly some tequila.

Also gonna TRON it tonight. Looking around for the original TRON got me thinking about some of the movies I watched growing up that I REALLY want to see again. So I worked my Google-Fu and have copies of the following coming to me. IMDB.com won't link properly, but you can look them up there if you wish:

1. "The Runner Stumbles"- As some of you know, I have a unique fascination with nuns. I think this is why. A Young Kathleen Quinlan plays a hot, HOT nun, people!! Nuns + Affairs + Murder = Big impression on a young CB's mind. I used to skip school when I knew it was gonna be on (days before VCRs). Why couldn't my Catholic school have had hot nuns like Sister Rita? Best thing is it introduced me to KQ and I have followed her career over the decades.

2. "Something for Joey"- As a college football lover, I remember watching this on TV and just sobbing with both happiness and sadness. And JoePa on TV? What could be wrong? I remember when Joey's hair grew in curly after his chemo. And Beastmaster was so adorable as big brother John. Loved this movie!

3. "Something Evil"- An early Spielberg film, I distinctly remember 2 things about this movie: Young Johnny Whitaker and Evil Redness in a mason jar. This flick used to freak me out more than "The Others" and that movie was FREAKY!!Seriously! I can't even look at a jar of homemade strawberry jam without thinking of this movie.

and finally...the ultimate film from my childhood. I remember not wanting to go watch 4th of July fireworks because this movie was on. And it was the Bicentennial!!

4. "Crowhaven Farm"- Witches, boards, large rocks, Hope Lange!!! My supernatural loving baby dyke self was in heaven with this movie. Or was that hell...mwahahahahaha. I must have watched this thing 20 times growing up. I still remember a few key scenes, but I am most anxious to watch the entire thing in it's 70ish badness. I blames this for my love of Salem witchcraft lore. And The Wednesday Witch book by Ruth Chew for which my search continues.

So peeps, what are some movies that you enjoyed watching as a kid that you would love to see again?
