aliveness

Its been a  busy morning already at 8.45 am.

Woke up at 6 something, shook awake the dog who promptly began the diligently licking himself, his legs and his dick all over, and then proceeded for a shower, a walk, the paper, the morning coffee, and now emailed done its time to commence working. Have not felt this enthused in the entire week, so it must be a good thing.

Saw three crappy movies yesterday. Yup was bumming the fever off.

Due Date
From the maker of hangover, the movie that had one in splits came as a huge disappointment, the jokes were insipid, the situations far fetched and overall the movie was a bit of a let down.One where you wanted the movie to be over more than anything else.

Leap Year
One of those,"you really want me to believe that" kind of movies where the cliched i have it all under my control american lady is suddenly taken by surprise at the charm of a certain irish man, the nature with its timely showers and hail storms does its thing and before you know it , she finds that she needs to give up her perfect new york life to come and serve dishes with him at the irish bar............COOOOOOOOOOOME ON!!!! Like do you even know one real story like that????

Going the Distance

A movie with the very real and believable Drew Barrymore. something about her non nonsense very grounded attitude makes a movie far more easy to relate to. A 31 year old she is running behind her so called timeline- of getting kids, finishing school, becoming a reporter etc etc.. who falls in love with this guy in New york and then the drama of a long term relationship commences.... etc etc... Was more believable and the least painful amongst the entire lot of movies.

As I couch potatoed through the day, I thought of only how visiting America seemed to the lowest on my horizon for a long long time, there were so many more nicer places to head to that the world seemed waiting and willing. So as of today am making a new aspiration for myself .. cant reveal it because then it doesnt come true. so they say ;-)
