Andy and I went down the UICA last night to see the film of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I felt a little more urgent need to see it since I had just finished reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, and was sad knowing there will be no further Blomkvist/Salander tales. (Unless Stieg Larsson's estate approves some kind of terrible Scarlett-esque sequel.) I liked the movie very much, and am also glad the Swedes got to it before it was made into something starring Brad Pitt and Keira Knightley. (Oh, crap. That looks like it could be a possibility.)
I was also very happy last night because my wonderful new headband from branchbound arrived in the mail, and it is so cute. (Please forgive this close-up taken in the car en route to the movie.) I love the colors, and the headband is very comfy. Such a fun and easy way to brighten up an outfit! I know Sarah Louise is making more of these in various shapes and colors. She also makes lovely lace necklaces, earrings and combs--go check them out!
After the movie, Andy and I strolled next door to the Ladies Literary Club, which is a beautiful historic building that sometimes has concerts. In fact, we saw Andrew Bird play there a few years back and it was such a fantastic venue to see him in! The auditorium is very old school and intimate.
I took this hilarious photo of Andy in the parking lot. Love the mural and the old Caddy!
