Reading Someone Else’s Thought?

Being a two timer [two timing! … what else to use here?] New Yorker, for couple of months — I fell in love with New York’s life style. Many of the city’s neighborhoods and landmarks are shown in those romance movies I usually watch. After attending two of the concerts in Madison Square Garden, you know, what it felt — truly different. And … New York’s restaurants? Top of the world!

Movies starting from An Affair to Remember (1957) to How to Loose a Guy in Ten Days (2006) had settings in NYC. Even last night, when I was watching No Reservation by Catherine Zeta-Jones – it was kinda like NYC is everywhere. There is no denying fact that I don’t dig her movies and .. she does have a personality.

Back to business … after watching Felicity (1998) episodes in WB channel in those way back days in Georgia; I haven’t thought of NYC pretty much until I started watching Gossip Girl; a TV show which talks about sophisticated lifestyles of some teenage boys ‘n girls residing in Upper East Side of New York City. The best part – first episode was made available as a free download on iTunes.

Just saw the first episode — Pilot. It was very intriguing, I believe. And .. few minutes before the end credit – I like the way Dan looked towards Serena in the cab on their way back home — it was kinda touchy. Sometimes you can even talk millions without saying a word. I really wanted to see — what was going inside Serena’s head?

Just a wild thought, when can we start reading someone else’s … thought?

Sleep: Does it Matter?

I have insomnia not because I have trouble with my life but I want to see more and more, where do I get time to sleep, you tell me?

Once a blogger Nithya Krishnakumar wrote:
[She has a different agenda than mine – for not sleeping]

If you could peer far enough into the night sky, you’d see a star in any direction you looked. When would you sleep?

And somewhere she wrote a little more:

Adrift in the vast dark expanse of the night sky, alone with the stars, numerous and far from reach as are the desires of my heart. Blissful cool breeze caresses my face as I shut my eyes, lost. A distant owl hoots, its time has come. Does sleep matter?

Hmm. I see you crawling to get between the sheets.

Well, but I’d recommend a good night sleep .. It is godsend, it is!
And then, something crossed my mind … do you remember this one?

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —

If you haven’t figured that line out – yet; it continues …

I took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference.

What did I choose when it comes to sleeping?

Oh, you probably won’t remember me
It’s probably ancient history
I’m one of the chosen few
Who went ahead and fell for you …

Watching movies is one of my favourite [I mean it] pass time. Each movie I see (mostly, dramas, romantic comedies … like When Harry met Sally) … that moves me so much, I could never move, just after the end of the movie … specially, when credits are on the run.
Same thing happens when I watch movies in theatre … I tend to seat back watch people leaving seats till the end. Well, I get little annoyed should someone tries to flip the TV channel or run around on the screen. Maybe, I can’t recover(?) or get back to normal state of mind instantly, like others do. You might laugh, what I could figure out …
I really love those soundtracks played while the credits are on. You know what, they are so perfect for that moment. I still can remember watching one of my favourite movie, Bed of Roses for the first time, got stuck with one of it’s soundtrack. You are clever! Yes, it was Insensitive by Jann Arden. So soothing. Usually I don’t tend to miss Mary Stuart Masterson‘s movies. I like her a lot.

The best part is yet to come. When I bought that soundtrack’s CD last to last year, hoping to get that Insensitive track. Surprise, surprise! The song was missing from that cd. I had to buy Jann’s original Living Under June!

This is Just to Say

Do you love poem?
Few years back as I was traveling through NYC Metro, a small billboard attracted me. It was made by Barnes & Noble for promoting poem books. The poem beneath was on the billboard. Yes, you have guessed it right, it was from William Carlos Williams! It is one of that memorable poem which I imagine began as a note typed to his wife, which turned into a poem. Was it a fair trade? — this poem for the plums she was saving?? What do you think?

Many people have endorsed this poem as one of those greatest romantic poems on earth. Seems so simple but enticing!

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
