Monday. Men. It's been so hot here that you may see cops patrolling the Millennium Park area while wearing shorts. And what a heavenly sight that can be. I saw a peace office perched on a ledge beside an ATM machine, organizing the cash in his wallet,* and his legs were the perfect shape and covered with just the right amount of wheat-colored leg hair. I'm glad I was wearing sunglasses so he couldn't tell I was ogling him and hoping for an evil doer to strike so I could watch my Dream Cop spring into action. Sigh. A definite day brightener.
* I guess if you're a Daley cop with a side arm, you're comfortable doing that out in the open and in plain sight. I don't recommend it for anyone else, though.
This week's movie topic is all about weddings ...
My favorite wedding movies are:
The Philadelphia Story. Katharine Hepburn is forced to choose whether to walk down the aisle with a young James Stewart or a young (but let's face it, he was great at any age) Cary Grant. Oh yeah, and the sanctimonious geek she was engaged to.
My Best Friend's Wedding. I love Julia Roberts in this because she's not afraid to behave very, very badly -- unusual for an actress who has won acclaim as America's Sweetheart.
Honorable mentions -- Movies that had memorable wedding scenes but weren't about weddings:
The Godfather and The Sound of Music.
