a saturday

started off by sleeping in. no, technically, i started off staying up late, then sleeping in. pancakes for brunch, followed by a beard trim and a low-cholesterol recipe search.  after brunch, groceries, reading at grounded (talked to scott, sarah, todd, chris and zeus, stephan, dr don), and as much coffee as my bladder can handle. tonight, snam! both films by norman jewison, but one very serious–in the heat of the night–and one very funny–moonstruck. but even moonstruck has some serious lines, like

  • (Rose:) ‘Old man, you give those dogs another piece of my food and I’m gonna kick you ’til you’re dead!’
  • (Ronny Cammareri:) ‘Everything seems like nothing to me now, ’cause I want you in my bed. I don’t care if I burn in hell. I don’t care if you burn in hell. The past and the future is a joke to me now’
  • (Ronny Cammareri:) ‘Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn’t know this either, but love don’t make things nice – it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren’t here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and *die*. The storybooks are *bullshit*. Now I want you to come upstairs with me and *get* in my bed!’
  • (Cosmo Castorini:) ‘Everything is temporary. That don’t excuse nothin’.’
