Spring Fever! Tony’s Blog

Well, Spring has sprung & here in Nashville it’s been a beautiful weekend. After 16 years in California we were really spoiled by the amazing year-round weather. So spoiled that
we sometimes forgot how lucky we were. Kris & I were talking the other day that we’re actually kind of glad to have “real” winters now (I know, northern & midwestern friends, they
aren’t nearly as “real” as yours, but hey, we’re babies) because it makes us appreciate the beautiful seasonal change. Trees blooming, grass growing for my son to cut (which he
just LOVES, believe me) and an all-around good feeling. Hope the nicer weather brings a lift to your wintery mood as well.

I’ve gotta include a quick “atta girl” to Candy. She’s been working at Anthropologie for about a year and a half. Started as part-time holiday help, then got promoted to Personal Shopper,
where she has thrived. She found out a couple days ago she’s now going to be a part of a team responsible for various areas of the personal shopper program for the whole region. It’s
really cool that she’s done so well & leapfrogged some other folks who have been doing it longer. If you’re ever in town, go see her!

Candy & I went to see The Lincoln Lawyer last night. It was pretty good. It’s tough when they make movies out of the books of one of my favorite authors. I’ve read the books so
many times that I really notice the chunks of story that get dropped or changed. Overall they did a good job, but it still can’t top the book. Of course, that’s almost always the case.
They’ve succeeded a few times (in my opinion). I thought Jaws was actually BETTER than the book. For the most part the Harry Potter films have been good, even though a TON
gets left out since they’re so long. Silence Of The Lambs was another example of a success. What do you think? Have you seen any of your favorite books adapted into successful
movies?

I guess that’s it. Kris always likes to include little surveys or whatnot. Here’s a fun game I like to play. Take your iPod (or mp3 player) & go to the menu. Click “songs” & list the first
10 songs that come up on your player. No skipping because it’s embarrassing, no cheating. Kind of fun to see the mix. Here’s one for me:

1. The Beatles – From Me To You
2. Lyle Lovett – Church
3. Elvis Costello & The Attractions – Worthless Thing
4. Taylor Swift – Better Than Revenge
5. The Hold Steady – Sequestered In Memphis
6. The Beach Boys – That’s Not Me
7. The Hives – Here We Go Again
8. The Dead Weather – Will There Be Enough Water?
9. Nirvana – Come As You Are
10. Death Cab For Cutie – Brothers On A Hotel Bed
