Fun Things To Do
Cheer for Team U.S.A
As the Olympics wrap up this weekend, the already-decorated Americans will compete for a little more bling around their necks: Skiiers Lindsey Vonn and Bode Miller will take on the women’s and men’s slaloms, respectively, and speedskater Apolo Ohno will tackle the short track event. For coverage and highlights check out Sports Illustrated's Olympics Website.
Look on the Bright Side
Head to JustMadeMyDay.com where Internet surfers post little things that made them smile (a surprise brunch invite, an impromptu declaration of love, kids sleeping past 6 a.m.).
Watch an Offbeat Movie
Watch The Private Lives of Pippa Lee on DVD ($28). This satirical story follows Pippa Lee (played by Forrest Gump’s Robin Wright Penn) as she re-examines her life with a loony, pill-popping mom (A History of Violence’s Maria Bello). Keanu Reeves stars as Pippa’s alluring neighbor. (Out March 2.)
If You Want Family Fun
Set Your DVR to Parenthood on March 2 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC. Craig T. Nelson (Coach), Michael Krause (Six Feet Under), and Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls) star in this drama about the highs and lows of parenting and sibling rivalry. Along the way, they’re discovering that no matter how hard you try, you’re destined to turn into your parents.
Listen to Upbeat Music
Download California-based emo-rock band Rogue Wave’s new album, Permalight ($16). The group’s songs have been featured on television (The O.C., Friday Night Lights, Chuck) and in the movies (most recently in Love Happens starring Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston). Start with the breezy sounds of “I’ll Never Leave You,” then move to the bopping beats of “Permalight.” (Out March 2.)
