Now & Then

Thursday, August 25, 2011


After Seeing Jen's post I feel rather envious of her film buff status and quite shameful of the fact that I am not similarly educated (or indeed that passionate) about films old & new.

The thing is that I don't really watch films like other people do, most of the time I dig into my collection of personal and sometimes embarrassing movie classics and play whatever strikes my fancy while I busy myself with something else. When I was young I used to sit at the coffee table in our lounge and draw all day while Robin Hood or the Three Amigos played in the background. Today nothing has changed - just replace drawing with blogging or working and perhaps replace Robin Hood with the five hour bbc version of Pride & Prejudice.

One of the movies I used to watch on repeat as a kid was Now and Then - which I absolutely loved since I was same age as the characters when it was released, and it spoke to me about everything you go through as a twelve year old girl. The fact that it is set in the summer of 1970 is also a visual perk. Plus Devon Sawa was such a dreamboat, guys.

The only thing that always bugged be about Now and Then though ... Roberta /Christina Ricci turns into Rosie O'Donnell? Please.

Summer Positives

Monday, August 22, 2011

summer positives

Hila and I are fellow Southern Hemisphereans (I hail from South Africa) and I know for a fact that she suffers in the intense heat of our similarly torturous summer seasons as much as I do. That's not to say I hate summer. In fact, there are many things about the season that I love - but I tend to forget the perks when I'm complaining about it being close to 40°C.

So since summer is only about 2 months away (!) I thought it would be a good idea to compile a list of Summer Positives that we can refer back to when we're lying in our beds at night tossing and turning because it's too hot to fall asleep.
