Next, lunch was terrific at the Four Season's last Friday. My sister had a wonderful birthday and we were joined by one of our great friends (and my college roomate) Judy. When I made the reservation, the staff asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. I told them that indeed we were so they then asked if I'd like to have them arrange for a floral arrangement from Winston Flowers. Of course I did. Here is what they came up with:
I did not have my camera with me at the lunch, so I took this picture three days later. It looked amazing when the tulips were tighter, but then again, didn't we all look better when things were tighter too?
As for the Other Boleyn Girl; the book was so much better than the movie. If you haven't read it, please do. The movie was fine. Scarlett Johansson was a bit dry. Natalie Portman and Eric Bana were great. He made a great King Henry, his voice is so sexy........I digress. I felt like the whole second half of the movie was very rushed. I don't want to give away any plot here, never one to be a spoiler, but I think they lost a lot of the true love story of Henry and Anne.
If you can't get your fill of King Henry and his Court from the book or movie, check out the Showtime original series "The Tudors". I don't have Showtime, but now I want it. On Demand offered up Season One until today for free. There are 10 episodes, so you have to watch quickly! Season 2 starts on Sunday, March 30th and I don't know how I can wait until it comes out on DVD. The cast is amazing. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is King Henry and he plays it incredibly well. He is sane one minute and crazy the next! http://link.brightcove.com/services/link/bcpid1305149607/bclid1311281474/bctid1428627737
