Crushed Dreams and Country Justice

I'm still getting over a nasty cough, so today I drifted in and out of consciousness until 1pm. My mom was downstairs watching the weirdest crap on TV (I could only hear it) and finally I was like, "what IS this?" She told me it was a dumb movie on the Lifetime Movie Network. Well, she watched like three in a row. So around 1pm when I finally decided to get out of bed, I yelled down the stairs that she had to change the channel before she got into yet another crappy Lifetime movie. It wasn't disrespectful, promise. More like a 'you'll thank me later' thing.

Anyway, we ended up watching a cute little movie called Morning Glory with Rachel McAdams, Diane Keaton and Harrison Ford. I loved it.  But -- in it, there is a scene where Rachel McAdams loses her job and she's talking to her mom, who was kind of mean, and basically told her to give up her dream of being an Executive Producer of a popular morning talk show. I think the quote went something like this:

"When you were 8, [your dream] was adorable; when you were 18, it was inspiring, but now, at 28, it's officially embarrassing. Let's stop before it becomes heartbreaking."

Isn't that MEAN!? So I said to MY mom, "don't you ever crush my dreams like that!"

And she said, "YOUR dreams? You? Who wouldn't let me watch 'Country Justice'?"





p.s.
I was searching for a google image for this post, and found this hilarious blog, a movie review site Specially for the Lifetime Movie Network:

OK so after watching the LMN Blogpost, I am glad I let you tear me away from the TV. I do not need to be any madder at the American Justice system than I already am. And I do not care to watch a movie where the grandfolks raise the grandkid and then also have to raise the great-grandkid. I am having enuff issues with re-raising the daughter. P.S. would you clean your crizzap off the kitchen table....TODAY??? Luv you:)

I love that you called it crizzap. And no. I'd much rather you clean it. Thanks!

I wish my mom was as cool as yours. Thanks for the blog love! The next time she wants to watch a movie you can see if I've reviewed it and save yourself two hours.

I don't care what they say about LMN. The cougar threatening the life of her daughter and the man that leaves her breathless. As God is my witness, I will never quit watching. Or at least as God is my witness I will think about quiting watching tomorrow. Tomorrow is another day.
