It's Thursday! I've begun work on my Halloween Costume... where will I find the time...

Anyway - today Kara sent out an email inviting folks over for a "Knitting-and-a-movie" night next week...and asked for knitting movie suggestions. So...I scanned IMDB and came across "UGLY".

"Writer/Director Moon Unit Zappa's "Ugly" may be short, but it's time well spent in this beautiful dark comedy. Gwen is a young woman with an unnatural passion for knitting. From her own clothes to cozies for her several prescription pill bottles, Gwen is following in the footsteps of her mother and grandmother's knack for the yarn arts.

After being discovered knitting in a park, Gwen and her new friend Kirk return to her apartment to work on Kirk's photography class project. Kirk, though, has ulterior motives, which Gwen finds out about when she overhears Kirk on the phone to a classmate. With the help of her daughter, Lola (*wink wink*), Gwen manages to make Kirk a little more than just a stranger off the street looking to take a few photographs for kicks. But heads up, there's a twist at the end."

If you go to the above link and scroll all the way to the bottom, you can order a copy for yourself in exchaneg for a donation to the American Film Institute.
Cool. Very Cool.

So - it shall arrive 4-6 weeks after my check clears...I'll let you know how it is!
