all we ever have is now

i listen to the flaming lips and think on the state of the universe.. it has been a week of meeting people i havent seen in a while. conclusion: no one changes.
Really. ever. the outside changes: people shrink down/wear clothes you dont expect them to. but in most cases, even that hasnt really changed. everyone looks the same. maybe it's because we're in our twenties..and really teenagers and 20somethings..who can tell the difference? but inside - people dont change. they think and say and do the same things. i find the predictability comforting. im quite opposed to change me.

other observations:
  • chiwetel ejiofor is the new tommy lee jones. (hard on the outside but soft on the inside pursuer of fugitives...) #salt
  • i still dont know exactly how to pronounce his name.. (imdb says it's: chew-it-tell edge-oh-for)
  • amethyst is like alice in wonderland.
  • romantic comedies as a genre are dying a slow death, probably because they're called rom-coms *rolls eyes*

my mother should have murdered me/no jury would convict her babe

im not a religious person. but i do believe in magic. magic in the universe. its probably why i dig gaiman and pratchett and murakami... anyhoo weird coincidence thing: when neil gaiman wrote american gods he was listening to 69 love songs. and i was listening to it (obsessively) just before i started on the book :)
reading bel canto by ann patchett now. loving it. its been so long since i discovered a new author that's easy to read and not a slog. bout 20 pages in. it goes swimmingly.

It was. It was a lie... but then it was a dream.

caught a few mins of benjamin button on tv and espionaged julia ormond and grew nostalgic about the movie sabrina. the new one. the good one. and i know why julia ormond is so irresistible..when really no one should be more so than audrey. its because audrey is audrey. but julia is sabrina. its pretty much the difference between the two movies. humphrey bogart is no linus larrabee. also sydney pollack is a genius. *sigh* its one of those ones where i know all the dialogue cause i used to watch it with the pater all the time. every time it was on. i feel deja vu writing this... i has blogged about this before yes?


Linus Larrabee: So, what do they say about me?
Sabrina: Oh, you know...
Linus Larrabee: No.
Sabrina: That you're the world's only living heart donor.
Linus Larrabee: Oh, that.
Sabrina: And how does this one go? He thinks that morals are paintings on walls and scruples are money in Russia.
Linus Larrabee: How droll.
Sabrina: And then there's my favorite...
Linus Larrabee: No, that's ok.

humphrey couldnt do those lines. also the first one had lame dialogue. one good thing about it. audrey singing louis prima's we have no bananas.

watched half of episode 2 series 1 of skins (cassie) before megavideo died on me. realised watching people not eat makes me really hungry. she was demonstrating her anorexia with his food... *shudder* pushing it around and everything.. creepy. i am so hungry right now. cant wait to devour lunch. except drama happening. new cook. painters working outside. there may be paint traces in chicken not having it. sigh. just when i was thinking no chips in sight. at least i have chicken. well leftovers sound good too :D
