December is going quicker then Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries marriage, so as time speeds by, and my perpetual list of stuff I want to do, grows, I’m starting to wonder how I am going to fit it all in.

Except in this case, I’m actually super excited to seeit, and unlike a lot of other times, I have not read the book yet, so I can’t be as judgy. This doesn’t come out nationwide until January 2012, but since it has so much buzz, and anything worth mentioning New York gets their hands on first; it is in a limited run at the Angelika Film Center
5)The Gifted; The holiday edition of the Brooklyn Flea. I peruse this every year, and this holiday will be no different, except that unfortunately I usually leave with less gifts for others, and more trinkets for myself. ‘Tis the season….
