sharing is funny.
actually, sharing is fantastic and brilliant!
you know, sometimes.
i mean, don't get me wrong, i love being a bit selfish every now and then, i love doing things on my own and being a lone observer sometimes, but sharing is brilliant. maybe better.
a smile. a laugh. a moment. a beer. an experience. a movie.
i have a few sacred movies. movies that i will adore forever.
i quote them, i swoon and pine over some of their characters.
i envy their (fictional) lives.
i laugh and learn from their mistakes.
annie hall is so freakin' brilliant to me.
it's romantic, without all the misleading 'everyone-living-happily-ever-after' crap.
it's charming, without being cheesy.
it's full of cute one-liners. i love a good one-liner.
my lovely sister popped around the other night and i suggested we watch a movie and order in a pizza.
because, let's face it, movies are ten times better with pizza.
they just are.
i said have you seen annie hall?
she said no.
i said you know woody allen?
she said of course.
i said well then, let's watch annie hall - it's one of his most well-known films, and one of my favourites.
we watched it. we ate delicious pizza.
my sister, she didn't like the movie so much.
my heart sank a little.
'damn it' i thought, 'i wish we could enjoy similar things.'
'i wish she loved it like i do.'
then i realised. i had gotten far too expectant, cynical and negative.
i do this a lot. but i'm trying, dammnit, i'm trying!
then i realised - i just spent a really great night with my sister.
why can't i let that be enough?
it's more than enough.
we had had a great night.
and the pizza was awesome (with extra tabasco sauce, of course)
it's easy to focus on the differences.
easy, but hardly helpful.
that's what this whole blog thing is about, right?
i put it out there. to share.
some of you will like it, some of you won't.
i guess i'll get used to it.
not everyone has to luff annie hall as much as i do.
