A little bit of conversation, a little more action

Don't ask me why I'm pasting lyrics as the titles, I just thought it was apt. :P

Okiedokie, Eugenie came and went. Unfortunately my lovely digital camera passed away at the same time, so I wasn't able to take any pictures. However, go to her website, and you'll see my darling who has been by me ever so often especially in the past coupla years. She's seriously one of the most amazing people in the world, and is such an inspiration to me.

Well, its going to be the start of yet another week. This weekend was a funny one 'caus of Deepavali on Thurs (Happy Deepavali to all btw!), and so the weekend started kinda early for me. Heh. It was a nice feeling, but weird 'cause on Friday it felt like it was Sunday. Now its Sunday and it just feels.. .weird. :S

It was also a teary weekend for me, as I stayed in and watched old reruns on HBO. I caught Castaway last night, and was sobbing at several stages... and Joy Luck Club (one of my all time favourites) this afternoon, and seriously no character in the movie stops crying either. Problem with emotional movies, and me watching them; I always put myself in the situation that the character is going through, or imagine if that had happened to me, on a first or second hand basis... so yes. I wailed in the cinema when I watched City of Angels too. Heh... and I get really depressed after watching Grey's Anatomy. It takes me a while before I recover even....

....Yep. My sister was right all along. I'm a crazy little basket case.

Heys, Andrea!

1st thing's 1st, the lyrics (for your title) should be 'A little less conversation, a little more action'. (I love that original song from Elvis! :) )

That aside, about 'Joy Luck Club'... a really good, yet emotional movie adapted from a really great book by Amy... er, I forgot her surname. Lol... I remembered when I was in Sec 3, my EL teacher recommended that book to my class, & we watched that movie for 1 of the EL lessons some months after. The women in the movie went through tough times & endured through... Commendable courage & I truly admire them.

Don't get too much into movies/TV shows... It ain't good for your health, like getting depressed & so. Remember, it's (mostly) acting, & acting ain't reality. :)

Hey...

Honestly, normal people worry me.

Hee hee...

Personally, I think it's good to be in tune with our emotions. They are what makes us human anyway.

I remember vividly the feeling when I got out of the cinema with my gf that time, after watching Young & Dangerous 3. I really felt like beating people up.

Hahahahahaha!!!!

Well, thank God for a beautiful basketcase like Andrea Fonseka.

ps Will you still be in Deal Or No Deal? Do forgive my ignorance. =D

A...

Did you get my letter? I was asking about your weekend...and a day later, you're telling us about it here. :O

I think I've mentioned Anatomy before. It can get too...cute sometimes, but (at its best) it's one of the great things on TV right now. Did you catch the arc where they had to remove explosives from a man's chest? Or the one where they stole the heart (for a man who still died)? KH played the heartbroken ;) girlfriend...and I thought her performance was exquisite. I'm not sure I've ever seen that much grief portrayed that beautifully. It made me forget that the person who was supposed to get that heart...probably died. :P KH just won an award...almost certainly for that arc, I think.

D...

You can't tell A not to "get into" TV. It's her job. ;)

S...

Lost is something else I've mentioned to A. I was just watching it...brilliant stuff.

Personally I don't think there is anything wrong for being too emotional while watching films. There wouldn't be any fun watching movies if we cannot feel for the characters right?

I like the ending at Castaway, very insightful, absolutely wicked.

If you enjoy Amy Tan's Joy Luck Club, try Mabel Cheung's An Autumn's Tale. Watch it recently in YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7hcev6LJ_I

Try City of Angel yesterday.

"I would rather have one instant with her, than an eternity without." How beautiful! Reminds me of Ghost and the song Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers.

Oh, my love
my darling
I've hungered for your touch
a long lonely time ...
