Things That Make Me Smile Part 4: Entertainment Weekly

Its the highlight of my week...I go out to my mailbox, open it up, and there it is: the new Entertainment Weekly! I love reading about all of the goings on in the entertainment business, making lists of books that I want to read, movies I want to see, and plays that if I ever happen to get out to NY I want to watch. I find the Nielsen ratings fascinating, look at the best-sellers list for books, and love reading the featured articles about movies that are coming out. The writers are witty but keep the magazine's integrity by staying (mostly) away from interpersonal Hollywood gossip and sticking to the artistic issues. Even so, its not so stuffy that they can't take jabs at famous personalities (ex. "Failure to Launch rules box office. And this despite football guru Terry Bradshaw getting naked. (not exactly Sharon Stone in that department. Or Sly Stone for that matter.)) Entertainment Weekly, you make me smile. :)

My Family Circle makes me happy. Actually the Lucky magazine subscription that I bought for my roommate makes me happy. The gift that keeps on giving.
