So, I was feeling all down and blue and I for some reason I started craving for a good movie. You know that feeling when you get a craving for a specific snack and all you want is just that snack, nothing else not even your other favorite food items but just that one thing. It was like that.
Suddenly my mind was like ‘Little watch French Kiss or Uptown Girl’, so I’m like okie dokie. But to my horror I couldn’t find them in my collection. I was shocked, surprised and a little darker shade of the blue I was earlier. So I’m searching, and searching, when I ended up finding this very sweet movie Ramona and Beezus.
I have already seen it a couple of times and that’s why it made me happy when I found it. And then bam, just like that I now wanted to watch it.
Not sure if people have liked this one but it is such a sweet movie. It’s about a 9 years old super hyper active little blue eyed girl Ramona and her family; her sister Beezus, aunt Beatrice, her cat Picky Picky, her baby sister and her parents. Ramona has a big imagination, creative mind, larger than life view of tiny stuff and she likes to invent words. Like Terrifical. It’s a good word, don’t you think.
But, unfortunately her too much energy always lands her in trouble making her an infamous troublemaker. This is a story of a 9 years old who is adored by everyone even Beezus her high school sister, who Ramona thinks of as the perfect girl. Ramona makes me want to go back to being a 9 years old and even a troublemaker, for worst she did was throw some good number of paint cans on their handsome neighbor’s car that ended up looking like an Easter Egg with four wheels.
Don’t you love movies that have power to make you cry and smile, even though you’ve watched it so many times that you can literally deliver the next dialogue before the lead character in it?
I was happy crying and now I wonder if there was a reason I couldn’t find both French Kiss and Uptown Girl. Which I’m sure I have.
If you need something sweet innocent and stress free then my friends I recommend Ramona and Beezus.
Sometimes I close my eyes and sometimes I stare at whatever is there right in front of me and zone out, either ways I just go to a place where I’m a fun person doing things I don’t do.
In my zoned out world I’m often a happy soul jumping, dancing, falling in love, flirting, kissing a stranger, getting drunk, hitchhiking, backpacking, traveling and doing every thing that you would do in a rom-com. Most of my zoned out moments are like being in a music video.
Reminds me of that dialogue from Sleepless in Seattle “You don’t want to be in love, you want to be in love in a movie”.
Often on bad days Im zoning out a lot, its kind of my defense mechanism. It’s one place, everything is better if not real.
P.S Gin Wigmore…how great is she?
Some days my heart hurts not for things inside my head but for what we have become. Us. Humans. People. We.
Everything about us is so repulsive, damaged and irreparable. I mean even God must be wondering what happened to the tiny pretty people that were created to bring life to a lonely planet. We have become Haters, Extremists, Cheats, Murderers, Terrorists and Egoistic monsters who would do anything to destroy love that is not straight, religion that is not ours, people with different skin color and accent, neighbors we were raised to dislike and humans we have never met but we truly believe are responsible for all the bad that happened to our people in some ancient history, we weren’t even part of.
Maybe I’m wrong, maybe we were meant to hate each other in the name of religion, cast, color, gender and disability. Maybe I’m defected if i think otherwise. Maybe the fault is in me. But if I’m wrong, if I’m defected then I guess I don’t want anyone to fix me. I rather be broken, defective and wrong than be part of a human system that feeds on hatred and anger and vendetta.
I saw this movie today and I think it got me thinking about it. Truth be told, I dont think earth has that many years left for us to grow up and become tolerant to each other. Cause the amount of hate we have around us, it would take a good couple of hundred years for the us to be anything more.
I just saw “The Hours” and it was heavy, intense and beautiful but in a sad way. Did i like it? I sure did. Because, i don’t know if it sounds weird but, i could relate to it in many ways. It is a sad thing to say i guess because no one should ever relate with a movie like that, but i do.
Truth is i wasn’t planning to watch the movie, i had Jodie Foster’s The Brave One ready for my movie night but i ended up watching this. I wanted to read the book first.
Sometimes when a story reminds me of what life really is and what life really never would be, i feel bad cause a troubled character in a story is in the end just a character, a fictitious person, but I’m for real.
Now im reading some crime fiction but i kind of miss reading The Book Thief. Have downloaded the movie too, but i know the book is always better. Sarah’s Keys was beautiful book but the movie was okay kind.
Leaving you guys with a sweet song from a band im in love with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes…
Last night i saw one of my favorite movies again because i wanted to watch something magical, happy and innocent on Christmas Eve. So i chose “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium” as my movie. Even though i have seen it before, i still loved it till the end. It’s a fantasy comical drama and the little girl in me was very happy to see it. Also, i love Natalie Portman.
If you’ve not seen it i would definitely recommend this one for the kid inside you 🙂
Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones 😀
I love Christmas. Everything about it. The tree, the cold weather, the holiday, the carols, the lights. There is something about Christmas and New Year festivities that makes me happy, so happy. I mean i woke up little edgy and lost but then i played a Christmas song on my phone, danced and shook the cloud over me and said to myself “It’s your day, smile and forget the pain. I know something is troubling you and you don’t know what but not now. Not today. Tomorrow you crib, tomorrow you be as bitter as possible. But not today”
So i shook it off me, drove to city with my friend had a good lunch and then we were joined by more friends later. We all had coffee, wore our Christmas spirit and cap, played scrabble, smiled, clicked pictures and came back happy.
I know i might just go into tears after turning off the lights, i might just spend next one hour sobbing alone in darkness, but right now I’m happy because it was Christmas today. Magic doesn’t work unless you believe in it, something i got from the move i saw, and Christmas is magical and i can’t stop believing in it. I believe its a day of smiles and happiness even for people like me and it doesn’t disappoint. The day brings a smile to me, even if I’m home all day.
It’s weird because i can’t explain my reason for loving Christmas so much. I’m not religious and i don’t do any Jesus talk. I’m not even Christian. Maybe i just need excuses to break the walls of my darkness and Christmas is one such excuse or reason.
Anyhow, sending lots of good wishes to everyone…
Only sad thing, i missed my buddy Snowy a lot today. Yesterday we got these Christmas caps and my first thought was i will put one on Snowy and click a pic of him. Then, it hit me. Good thing it was a thought and i didn’t say it out loud. I don’t want people to know how much i miss him because i don’t think anyone would understand. I would hate to hear anyone say “He was just a dog”.
Anyhow, not going sad. Let’s just be happy today. Christmas time 🙂
Leaving you with a Soundtrack from the movie..
If i a have choice to be born as someone else, i would probably not take it because i have had a good life so far and the people i have in my life are my life. But, some days i do wonder what if i had choice to not be me.
Lying all day all night, pretending and faking has made me a bitter and mean person which kind of hurts people and me too. I realise how i have become the bad guy among people in my life, directly and indirectly. Either they don’t know this maybe or they are just not sure how to fix it. I wasn’t this bad-ass mean person; i was once a girl who was nicer. Before i became the misfit, before i found out why i always was different, before i found how i can never be a part of sunshine world, before i realized how i am two different person in one body – one is what im and one is for what people want to see. Before all this, i was quite a nice little girl with not a single bone of meanness inside her.
Since im kind of cranky right now, i think i shouldn’t write much so im going to leave two songs i discovered and cant stop listening to. The one by Lesley Roy is probably written for me. I think even if i delete everything and just upload this one song, you would get my state of mind cause the lyrics are just i want to say.
This second one is probably way better than the original one. I think this guy has sung better than Bob Dylan and Adele. I cant stop listening to this one even though i am all Hulk right now. Right now, i feel like Kathleen Kelly from that scene where she closes her shop, walks home and sits alone in a corner with a soup bowl wondering where to go from there, feeling all lost and beaten by universe.
