Stormy Sunday

A stormy winter Sunday is not so bad. Naturally I would rather be outside biking or hiking, but there are things to do on a day like this.

There are some television channels that, on Sunday afternoons, show some great old movies. Hitchcock's "Rear Window", "Vertigo", "Notorious" and "The Wrong Man" are some of my favorites by him. There are also some more recent movies that I also find really good. Reservoir Dogs, Fargo, Dusk till Dawn, Babel, The Motorcycle Diaries to name a few.
Today however, I have three lined up,

"Snatch" with Brad Pitt, Del Toro, Dennis Farina et all

"Fearless" with Jeff Bridges

And the classic, "in the heat of the night" with Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger.

If nothing else they will help me get through the day at work.


  1. No riding today here either...we got hit by lots of snow and I don't have that commuter bike yet.

    Btw, my earlier post was not meant to offend...just made me chuckle a little bit :)

  2. Those are some of my favorites also. I forgot about Fearless. I really liked that one.

  3. Something about riding through snowy streets seems so wonderful to me. I hope I get a chance to try it someday. And by try it, I mean to stay in and watch movies all day, of course. The perfect rest day provided by nature.
