Follow the Fleet and other things!

I have moved! I am now located in the Kansas City area! I have not done much exploring yet, but finding Ginger's birth house in Independence, MO is definitely on my to-do list. I'm thinking Sunday might be a good day for a drive.

Tonight one of my other favorite people, Cher, was the guest programmer on TCM and it turns out she's a big fan of our girl! I was excited to learn that, and I think Ginger would have been tickled to know it too. Cher didn't mention that she had ever met Ginger but I have to wonder if their paths had crossed somewhere--it's possible! Cher showed Follow the Fleet as one of her selections and as I was alone for the evening, I watched it even though a) I've seen it and b) I own it and can watch it whenever I want. It's not my favorite Fred and Ginger film in terms of plot or cuteness, but in terms of dancing I give it an A++++. Let's Face the Music And Dance is brilliant, as is Let Yourself Go.

Moving Day Approaches...

Well, I move in one day. The walls in my room are bare and it's freaking me out. That hasn't happened in a long, long time. I've been freaking out a lot the past couple days, but last night after Kayla got here we watched Vivacious Lady, which I had not yet seen, and right now we are watching Lucky Partners, which neither of us have seen. Just watching Miss Ginger makes me feel a little less stressed and a lot more happy. I find that I rarely watch her without smiling. Vivacious Lady was especially fun. Lucky Partners is alright so far.

My next update will likely be from Overland Park, Kansas. Wish me luck!
