I was tired &, as I came home, I fell on the bed and started playing with the TV remote. Browsing through movie channels, I found myself watching #girlinterrupted from somewhere in middle and I thought, clearly I was hit my 90s nostalgia, how we don’t have such cult movies anymore. How every movie now is about a remake of a good book or a superhero series continuation or just something that we won’t remember after few weeks or months.
I started missing 90s, my life back then, the feeling of discovering romcoms and flicks staring Winona Ryder or Meg Ryan or Jodie Foster, the adventure of watching The Mask over and over again, sniffing when Richard Gere scales the ladder with a bouquet of flowers in his mouth for Julia Roberts.
Maybe, just maybe, it’s not the movies of then and movies of now but the lingering memories of a life that was when I was busy falling for the cinematic classics.
Excuse the nostalgia of a girl who wish she could go back and rediscover the joy of watching #youvegotmail for the very first time.
It’s been a rough few days and there is so much to say and yet no words. Often when I go down like an aircraft crash landing on heap of sand, I try to picture Meg Ryan’s character from courage under fire talking to me. Her words come loud and clear to me saying… No Surrender… So I don’t… I try to fight…
Here is to the girl inside me who is trying to be brave and stand tall, even when she know there is no effin Eject Button in her plane…
You gave me movies that not only make me believe in happy endings and old school true romance, but your work has helped me through some tough days. I want to thank you for your movies that i have binged upon and did marathon with when i was running low on smiles and hopes. Kay or Rita or Maggie or Kathleen or Sally or Annie…I’m in love with every single character of yours.
Okay, so do you remember that Meg Ryan movie “French Kiss” where her character Kate is all clumsy breaking things falling left and right…well I kind of feel like that only I’m not Meg and I’m not in Paris. If only i was…
This is totally not what I meant when I said I want to live a Meg movie.
What happened? Well nothing much. You know that moment when we sit with a cup of coffee next to our laptop and then drop the whole cup on the laptop…yeah that moment…you don’t know? O come on! its so common we all do it…we don’t? …hmm…awkward.
Okay, so I me myself kind of did that. Funny story here, I make me a good cup of coffee, sit with my laptop wondering what to download…one sip, two sip, three sip and then SPLASH it all goes left and right, up and down on my Lenovo. Man! What a pretty picture it was…coffee everywhere and my jaw dropped till my knees. I have no idea how I survived a massive heart attack. I think I was struck by lightening right there but I was too busy screaming OOOOOOHH NO NO NO NO…that I failed to notice the heart attack.
Anyhow, to be honest it aint that funny specially when it’s a weekend and most of the repair shops are closed and your brother, who does all the work for you, is away vacationing and you have no idea about laptops except that they are where you watch your episodes…oh my god…the episodes…I lived without my laptop and my episodes for almost 2 days.
It’s crazy because first I broke my car and then I drowned my laptop in coffee…It wasnt a Meg movie, it was a nightmare where i was the ghost of my own stupidity.
