Inside all of us...

Today my lovely boyfriend took me to the cinema to see Where the While Things Are (:
I've been waiting to see it for ages & it was absolutely brilliant, every second of it.
y'know when something is so perfect, as if it came right out of yourself, that it makes you just ache.

There were a lot of kids there, but I definitely wouldn't call it a kids' film. It's intense & incredibly emotional. But also amazingly clever how the writers and director have managed to turn a simple, but beautiful, children's picture book into this deep, emotional story about a lonely, angry child & the way he see the world, & ultimately how he comes to understand how his behaviour effects the people he loves, like his mother, through watching Carol.
It was weird too, but in a good way, & kind of in a scary way, like when Carol breaks off Douglas' arm.
I need to watch it again, to take everything in properly. I could have watched it again right after it finished (: But I guess I'll have to wait until it comes out on DVD!

Today I have had a lovely day;

I finished my english coursework
had a nice, long bath
moved the lamp in my room to a better place
had my first glass of Bailey's of the season
decorated the christmas tree
made a very pretty rose out of a piece of silver ribbon
walked the dog
and last night I had a nice, funny dream about making custard for my boyfriend (:

"Goodnight, my hetero heroine"

This weekend I absolutely fell in love with this film. & with Kat Dennings.

Norah: Nothing! You're just...you're ridiculous.
Nick: You don't even know me.
Norah: I know you, I know your make.
Nick: My make?
Norah: You're an emo punk bandboy and you're obsessed with Tris. They could make action figures out of you - drummer not included.
Nick: It's funny that Tris never mentioned you considering what good friends you are, but she did mention some frigid jealous jap who was completely jealous of her and who was a complete bitch.
Norah: Oh, jealous?!?
Nick: Yeah, and so now I think I know exactly who she was referring to.
Norah: Let's dance, douchebag!
Nick: OK, sweetheart, you think you have something...
[Norah chops Nick in the throat]
Norah: I AM NOT JEALOUS!!

Things I have missed in the past year:

1. Having time to read for pleasure.
2. Candyfloss.
3. A friend, & the weird stuff we used to talk about & coffee the special way she makes it.
4. The hoodie given to me by an old friend which I lost two summers ago.
5. A time when things weren't good, but they were simpler because I didn't care about anything & had nothing to lose - Only in breif moments of weakness.
6. The Ocean.
7. Being thinner, & having more control over my compulsive comfort eating.
8. Having more friends.
9. The red checker shoes from Zara that my mum throw away last year.
10. You, every single second that I'm not with you.
