frankly, my dear...

We're watching Gone with the Wind today in Southern Women.  I know that generations of fellow southerners will burn me at the stakes for saying this, but I. hate. this. movie.  It gives us a bad name and has completely exaggerated and idealized a time period in which maybe 10% of plantations actually looked like Tara.  MAYBE.  Ok. Getting off of soapbox before I get hate mail.
That being said, I do love a good idyllic antebellum plantation, and "Tara" is no exception.  So I'll be totin' my sweet tea down to Brock Forum for a three day reprieve from note taking.  Sounds good.


  1. Are you certain that you are my daughter? Not loving "Gone With the Wind" is a no no.
    Aside from this, have a wonderful time. How I would love have three class to watch this movie that I have seen maybe 25 times.
    Love you,

  2. Shocked.
    This Atlanta girl wants nothing more than to take you down to the Margaret Mitchell house right this instant.
    Still love you my dear.

  3. Ahhh, I can't believe you don't like this movie! I'm making my northern friends watch this with me next week, because they've never seen it and it's one of my all-time favorites!
