Thoughts on a rainy Friday

A beautiful sunset after today’s rain
  • When it rains, it pours.
  • Pretty much in a literal sense, these days.
  • Last summer was hot hot hot.
  • This summer has been wet wet wet.
  • I can’t believe it’s already August.
  • Oh wait, yes I can.
  • Peach season!
  • This thrills me more than I can say.
  • Same goes with the wild blueberries.
  • Can’t get them any better than that.
  • Watching the live-action Beauty and the Beast earlier this week was the soul-cleanser I needed.
  • Emma Watson was an excellent Belle; if not for her singing abilities (which were meh), but definitely for her portrayal.
  • And of course, Dan Stevens killed it as Beast/Prince Adam.
  • What a lovely guy.
  • I could almost forgive him for his quitting Downton Abbey.
  • Kidding!
  • No hard feelings about that.
  • Sure, it was sad to see him go (if you’ve watched the show you’ll know what I mean), but Dan’s gotta do what Dan’s gotta do.
  • Because if he hadn’t left Downton, he might not have taken the role.
  • And thus, we wouldn’t have been gifted with the wonderful sass master of a Prince we have today.

Jerk move, but his expression is hilarious.
  • If Beauty and the Beast was the soul-cleanser I needed, then Wonder Woman was the soul-strengthener.
  • Saw that today, fyi.
  • Now I feel 1000 times more powerful than I did when I woke up this morning.
  • A lot of the movie was summed up to “Diana, no!”
  • Only to be rebutted with “DIANA YES!”
  • Long live the female super hero.
  • Forever and ever.
  • Chris Pine.
  • Not the star of the movie, mind you, but still impressive.
  • Oops, there I go, doing double on the crushes.
  • Must be that kind of week.
  • Who’s next?
  • No, don’t answer that.
  • Ah, the sun is out again.
  • I feel like Diana and Steve Rogers (aka Captain America) would get along great.
  • Because, you know… They both have shields they rely on.
  • And other stuff they can relate to.
  • Actually, I think they would be quite good.
  • That is, if she can ever get past his name being “Steve”.
  • And oh gosh, if he can ever get past her brown eyes.
  • Similar to Peggy Carter’s, if you know what I mean.
  • It’s not about “deserve”. It’s about what you believe. And I believe in love.
  • Stay strong and enjoy the weekend, peeps.

30 Day movie challenge: Day 26

A movie that is a guilty pleasure

Actually, I have a few contenders:

  1. Sleepless in Seattle


Significantly and absolutely better than You’ve Got Mail.

 

2. 

I admit it! I got this movie when I was in the midst of my Beatles obsession in my teens.  It’s full of their early music and rather campy (although definitely not as campy as Help), but I still enjoy watching it from time to time.  And, I also have to admit, I found them pretty cute.

3. 

Ok, this is one my guiltiest of all guilty pleasures. I really only watch it for Kate Winslet and Jack Black (their budding romance is so much better than Jude and Cameron’s), the beautiful, overly-indulgent/unrealistic sets, and Eli Wallach–that dear, dear man. (The writing is meh.)
