Can’t believe this film is 13 years old. Really?? 13???!!! I find that so hard to believe. I love that people still respond with “there’s a glitch in the matrix” when someone says “deja vu” (at least within my social circle…) It cracks me up. Ahhhh. Freaking fantastic.
Past-time? Pastime? Really? Pastime? Looks wrong. So strange.
ANYWAY. Mahjong. Hahaha. We played a good 10 hours of mahjong today. I love it. Can’t wait until our next mahjong session…
Quiet drinks with the boys tonight… quiet because the noisy one was tired, so there really wasn’t very much talk going on at all. Hahaha. Glad he came out to see us though, especially since he’s leaving again soon… Ahhh Hong Kong, the land of travellers and people who stay long enough to become good friends, but then leave pretty soon afterwards…
The new gmail interface was forced upon me a few days ago and my beautiful dark grey background is no more… Thus, I went through the new themes and picked the “Tree”. And over the past few days, the weather on my gmail background (with the tree at the bottom of the page) has matched the weather in Hong Kong.
To the extent that as my friends were talking about a lightning storm where they were (I couldn’t see it from my flat), the interface changed, right before my eyes, into one with a lightning storm happening.
Technology. Amazeballs. I feel so… old…
Love. There is no other word, but love. The love has been there since Buffy and then Firefly, it was a little shaken by Serenity and Dr Horrible’s Singalong Blog, but when the news came that The Avengers was going to be written and directed by Joss Whedon…….. There are no words.
I’m probably exaggerating, but The Avengers is a proper team film and is amazing, great fun throughout.
I think I need to see it again.
Got home today after recording feeling like I needed to watch a girl power movie so I rewatched Legally Blonde. It made me laugh so much, still.
It’s a good reminder, that you can break free of whatever pigeon hole someone has shoved you in, or whatever other people think you should be.
Yayyyy coming out in three days!! Three days!!!!!
It’s been a long, long time since I last watched this film. And now, all these years later, it’s still funny and it still makes me cry. Ahhh. I wonder where the girl has gone… Haven’t seen her in anything since Blood, which wasn’t all that great to be honest…
In other news, I also rewatched Octopussy this evening because it was on TV whilst we were having dinner… Happy birthday, Tin. We love you very much.
Later today for a quick stay at the Banyan Tree… and then back for my bro’s birthday on Sunday. I’ll be computerless for the first time in… a long, long time. But I guess as I will have my phone, it doesn’t count much anymore. Technology scmechnology.
Dinner tonight with some old friends. It was funny how we were all rushing off after dessert – Ki to his new puppy, Mo to her baby, Kanas to his hubby and me to my never-ending freelance work. it used to be that we would sit and chat until the small hours of the night… Times have certainly changed.
Having said that, hilarity hasn’t and the four of us laughed (and ate) non-stop over the 3+ hours we spent together. Good friends, good times, so blessed.
