About love - Tokyo

Another movie review for you :P ( Warning : Contains spoilers )

This is a half hour film in Japanese about an aspiring cartoonist and a young painter girl ... their first 'encounter' is in the middle of a very-Tokyo-like 4 road crossing, Yao - the hero bumps into her in his cycle and is caught by the tears he sees in her eyes. Later that day, he sees a wall painted with a beautiful unending road on a sunny day.

She (name dunno) had just had a break up which lasted 4 seconds after a 3 yr relationship ... The next day, he sees the same road (wall) again, this time she's in the room, making it cloudy and gloomy. he leaves her a cartoon of her with tears streaming ... that leaves her intrigued.

Over the course of the next few days, he leaves cartoons of her in gradually lighter moods, and the wall becomes sunnier :)

He always tries to dodge her, and succeeds , most of the time, rest of the movie, and the other 2 parts ( I'm guessing) is about what happens next ...

Its a beautif…

Things that feel good :P

Yesterday, my grandma decided to wash all the bed linen and change them ... I don't mind the linen being changed, but the sheet I use to cover myself is always the same one. Last night it was still wet and obviously I couldn't use it. I had a replacement for the night, it was ok.
In the morning, I went and hugged my own sheet, and boy that felt so good ! A little warm from the sun, just the right temperature, and smelling cleaner now :P
So, now I'm gonna make a list of all the things that feel really good :)
Continuing in the same genre, Pinky, my pillow is next, its been with me for ever so long and its so comfortable. Just the right amount of squishy, to give the perfect hug. And she holds a lot of tears and secret happiness. Brave weapon of many a pillow fight. Always there for me. Go pinky !
Next up is probably something you're familiar with, A hug :) . Doesn't it already bring a smile to your face ? It does to mine :P . Well hugs are the simplest things you could …

Sinking in the sand ...

I went to the beach yesterday , with my dad .

We go there together sometimes .... for corn, peanuts, the sea, the big sky but most importatly to spend some time with each other.

Last night I stood by the shore, the place where water meets land ... cool breeze surrounding everything around and an occasional wave wetting my legs. Every time water came to where my leg was, my foot sank a bit and a moved away to more level sand. But each time the wave came came back, it pulled me down again. I was wondering if I would sink completely if I stood at the same spot at the rate the waves were determined to pull me down.

I decided to stay on the same spot, worst comes, my dad will save me :)

Then the strangest thing happened, I did go down a bit, my foot surrounded by sand, but it was hardly a few millimetres. After that, I just stood firm, and the waves could no more push me around like they did when I kept jumping about searching for "level sand".

Most of you have probably been to the…


[Warning : If you haven't seen the movie, and you're planning to, DO NOT READ THIS. Many spoilers ! ]
I loved the movie :) So you know the stand I'm taking , now I'll validate my point.
The movie is basically about a girl named Juno (16) who becomes pregnant. The good thing about the movie is that they've taken it from a very realistic view point ... no overdramatic parent - child arguments on the issue, the pregnancy itself isn't glossed over or made to appear grossy.
Her past - how she became pregnant is dwelt upon for less than a few minutes in a very matter of fact way. And yeah, she does regret it, but thats not what the movie is about. they move on ..
She finds people to adopt her baby ... A couple who looks really happy ... Figures their marriage isn't that solid really ... Then asks a few life questions before making her final choice ...

Thats the story told very mechanically.

The story relates in a very witty way how a very serious problem could be deal…
