Good Morning from Rita and Me. 

I'm not as peppy as Rita Hayworth here* -- yesterday was so disheartening on so many levels -- but the coffee is helping. While I struggle to get my day going with a smile, tell us about yours -- any big movie plans this weekend?

  3. Isn't it frighteningly easy to imagine marketing tie-ins for different movies?

 

Anyway I giggled and it gave me a smile prompting a flashback to Renée's Extreme Sour Lemon Candy. Remember that? Such a classic.
