From Olivia Newton John to Fungus

Effie’s wild Sunday of genre-flipping, movie watching madness consisted of 1980’s bizarre roller-disco trompe de Olvia Newton-John, Xanadu, followed by the 1951 version of Show Boat, then Bride and Prejudice - the bollywood-esque remake of Pride and Prejudice - and finally, BBC period piece/ mini-series, Cranford.

By the time she said good night she had perfected a spot-on middle class English accent circa 1840. I’m so grateful that she watched Cranford last as opposed to Xanadu!

Eff did manage to take a mid-movie marathon break and go on a mushroom hunt. I won’t post all 160 (ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY!) of the mushroom and assorted Fall scenes photos that she took, but here are a few:

Hey, maybe the Broadway version of Xanadu will go on tour...? I've heard it's much better than the movie. Of course, I don't suppose that would be too difficult to achieve. ! Ah, it seemed so much better when I was 11.

And let's remember that in the future, we should be visiting YOU during mushroom season, not vice versa. Those are fantastic!
