Today We Celebrate Being Cheap And Homely!
Welcome to the weekend!
Today, according to the first janky internet site that came up, is both Frugal Fun Day and National Inner Beauty Day, both of which I would have totally celebrated if I didn’t have tickets to the opera tonight, at which I am legally obligated to be extra AF. Sorry!
It is also National Frappe Day. Not sure if they’re talking Boston Frappes or Frappuccinos, but either way, it’s a nice day to suck down some liquid ice cream. Personally I prefer the Rhode Island coffee cabinet (coffee milk blended with coffee ice cream).
This week, your presence is the made-for-TV sequel to Rosemary’s Baby, titled Look What Happened To Rosemary’s Baby. Could you die? I haven’t seen it yet but Patty Duke replaces Mia Farrow in it … and Ruth Gordon, my most favorite person in all the world, reprises her role as Minnie Castevet. A wonderful opportunity for the aspiring Ruth Gordon completist … and hey! Maybe it’s actually good, who knows?
For thematic reasons, I’m also gonna give you the TV movie Bates Motel, starring Bud Cort and Lori Petty! Who knew that was ever a team-up?
I just love that these things exist.
