The Vine: November 30, 2012
A Vine question from my brother…who is single. And lives in Seattle. And needs a girlfriend. But anyway, he had a movie question, and as my normally encyclopediac movie brain has failed me, I'd like to turn this over to the Nation. Especially gals who live in Seattle. [wink]
"I am trying to remember the name of a movie from childhood. It was on HBO when we originally moved to Texas in 1976, I think. It was a colonial period piece, I want to say it was set partially in the Middle East or India and involved some woman who was following some dude around the world, as I recall he was a soldier with some sort of cavalry helmet at one point. I want to say she was either wealthy or a noble of some sort, but the love was unrequited. The last scene involved her stumbling through some dusty market dressed in a tattered black dress, she might have lost her mind, and she comes across the dude who doesn't recognize her. Does this sound even vaguely familiar?"
Nation, I promise, my bro is a prize.
"Tomatchmaker, tomatchmaker…" No clue on the movie, but if any of you Pacific-Northwest single ladies want to sign up for Operation JenBro, we'll see you in the comments. (Wear red. Gives your face a nice glow.)
I have been looking for something for years but only at certain times of the year and just realized that The Nation would be the best resource ever. I want Christmas-themed sheets for a queen-sized bed — that are not flannel. Flannel is lovely and soft and warm and I cannot get to sleep on it because the heat it drives me crazy. I suppose since Christmas sheets are a winter thing in the U.S., people assume you want warm sheets and so every Christmas/holiday sheet I've seen has been flannel.
Does anyone have a link to a holiday/Christmas/winter sheet set in plain old cotton? Looking for something with red/green/white colors, pattern not a huge issue. Although sleeping on a manger scene would be odd.
Is Australia Amazon a Thing?
Best I could find in 10 minutes of Googling: the green/red polka-dot percale sheets at Garnet Hill. I kinda like 'em because the holidayness is subtle; they're available in all sizes. Readers, let us know what else you find.
