“When Dad was tucking me in that night and we were
talking about the book, I asked if he could think of a solution to that
problem. “Which problem?” “The problem of how relatively
insignificant we are.” He said, “Well, what would happen if a plane
dropped you in the middle of the Sahara Desert and you picked up a single grain
of sand with tweezers and moved it one millimeter?” I said, “I’d probably
die of dehydration.” He said, “I just mean right then, when you moved that
single grain of sand. What would that mean?” I said, “I dunno,
what?” He said, “think about it.” I thought about it. “I guess
I would have moved a grain of sand.” “Which would mean?” “Which
would mean I moved a grain of sand?” “Which would mean you changed the
Sahara.” “So?” “So? So the Sahara is a vast desert. And it has
existed for million of years. And you changed it!” “That’s
true!” I said, sitting up. “I changed the Sahara!” “Which
means?” he said. “What? Tell me.” “Well, I’m not talking
about moving that one grain of sand one millimeter.” “Yeah?” “If you
hadn’t done it, human history would have been one way…” “Uh-huh?” “but you
did do it, so…?” I stood on the bed, pointed my fingers at the fake stars,
and screamed: “I changed the course of human history!” “That’s
right.” “I changed the universe!”

So, on Saturday I saw the lovely film, 500 Days of Summer, which by the way, is absolutely beautiful. I mean, Zooey Deschanel is definitely one of the most gorgeous girls of Hollywood. Ahh, her eyes are exquisite. And, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is absolutely positively adorable. In other words, I thought it was a very sweet film.
I just finished watching the Emmy Awards, and truthfully, there was no specific outfit that stood out (in a good way), so that pretty much ruined my plans of giving you info on the spectacular fashion at the Emmy Awards.
Here is Sofia Vassilieva from Medium and My Sister's Keeper, and there's something about this 'Asian inspired outfit', which I really like. I don't know whether its because this girl is absolutely beautiful, or if it is the cute yellow earrings...I don't know. But, I do like it.
Oh, and she is a brilliant actress, may I just add.
Okay, let me begin by saying that the fashion in Gossip Girl is very preppy, yet brilliant at the same time. I love Jenny's sense of style (Taylor Momsen) especially, as this was the time before her pretentious attitude kicked in. I mean, she looked so innocent, yet sophisticated at the same time. However, I love Blair's sense of fashion too, as she truly is a fashionist (even though she is a fictional character).
Yet, I was not a fan of Leighton Meester's dress at the Emmy's ... sorry.
Oh, and last night I saw Grey Gardens and instantly fell in love with her and Jessica Lange. Ahh, and the costuming in that film is spectacular. I mean, everything about the film is absolutely amazing!
They're two amazing performers.
They embrace the characters of 'Little' and 'Big' Edith Bouvier Beale so well.
As does, Jeanne Tripplehorn who plays Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (who I love so much) exceptionally well.
So, there you go. I'm sorry I couldn't go into more detail, but I'll try to next time.
Until then, Good evening! And in case I don't see you; good afternoon, good night and good morning!
500 Days of Summer:
Summer: We've been like Sid and Nancy for months now.
Tom: Summer, Sid stabbed Nancy, seven times with a kitchen knife, I mean we have some disagreements but I hardly think I'm Sid Vicious.
Summer: No, I'm Sid.
Tom: Oh, so I'm Nancy?
Everything about this film is just brilliant.
But, the costuming is just amazing, regarding the film is set during WWII.
The ending made me cry.
Anyways, kudos to Jacqueline Durran, the costume designer.
Anyways, I thought I'd take the time to show my brilliant readers a collection of my favourite novels, as I'm in a 'novely' mood.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
Probably the best novel I've read in my whole life.
Cute. Adorable. Sad. Amazing.
Great for kids, teens and adults alike.
A Northern Light.
The Little House on the Prairie Series.
Probably one of the best series of all time.
I will never get sick of this amazing series.
To Kill A Mockingbird.
Splendid. Brilliant. There is seriously no word to describe this extravagant novel.
This has been one of my favourite novels since I was eight years old.
I will always cherish it.
Beat the Turtle Drum.
The Great Gilly Hopkins.
Looking for Alibrandi.
The Harry Potter Series.
A Series of Unfortunate Events Series.
The Other Boleyn Girl.
Picnic at Hanging Rock.
The Gossip Girl Series.
Spirit of the Deep.
My Sister's Keeper.
The Lovely Bones.
And the list could literally go on forever.
So, does anybody have any suggestions on what I should read next?
You guys are geniuses.
R.I.P PATRICK SWAYZE.
YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MY HERO.
WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU.
AND MISS YOU.
1952 - 2009.
As in the designer...
Well yes, I would probably classify myself as a nerd because as I've most probably stated before, I am extremely inquisitive. However, fashion means so much to me.
So...I've included some outfits in which I adore from Chloé's Fall 2009 collection.
Enjoy, and tell me what you think.
I just adore the simplistic style in which Hannah MacGibbon incorporated in the line.
All I can say is - this is pure bliss.
Oh, and I know I'm not alone on this one.
- Intellectual nerd who would rather perform pieces of sophistication and donnishness than of popularity and doltishness. Living in a fairy tale dreamland with leprechauns and unicorns acting as psychotic investigators, with red floral dresses and long cheater-like hair.
