I saw La Pianiste last weekend. I had not seen such a shocking movie in a long time. While it’s just too bad to see yet another movie in which a masochist is portrayed as someone with a mental disorder, I really enjoyed it. I want to do a scene by scene analysis of this movie with screen shots. However, before I do that, I have asked Yoshi to watch it as I know he will see a totally different movie in it. Follow-up discussion should be interesting.
So many things happen to me I should get a frickin’ Twitter going.
I have enjoyed a nice weekend. Obviously Halloween was fun. I went to a grade school dance party dressed as someone really repulsive (nerd with pimples, black glasses, a unibrow and poorly orchestrated wardrobe) My friend Jenny noted the lack of attractiveness of my costume. It’s okay the D.I.L.F. factor was very low. Upon discussing boyfriend issues (or lack thereof) Jenny (who is extra vanilla and in her forties) asked me to flip her one of mine. In a sense it is unfair that she should have none and I have many. Normally I am quite happy to share but in this situation it’s NOT a good idea! I wonder if she saw my coureur des bois raking the lawn on Monday afternoon. He is in her age range but he wants 12 kids on a farm (the only lifestyle hard enough to keep him busy) so that would not be a match made in heaven. If she did see him, I will hear about it ;P
Chuck came over to spend a few days with me and rake me a huge 4 feet by 6 feet pile of leaves and yard debris!?! I was happy to catch up with him. He is holding steady on this tantra meditation and focusing thing that he has been doing for years. I think it makes him super-human now LOL I can appreciate his chaste lifestyle as I have been limiting sex a lot in the past 2-3 months. At first it was a pain issue, then in the middle it was a strategic decision as I was getting to know Mr. M. Now, I have no specific reason so things are picking up slowly. In addition to catching up, Chuck and I watched Man Vs. Wild and I picked out episodes of places he had been or worked at. The Alps episode (season 1, episode 3) brought back a lot of memories. He was a ski instructor for many years and worked in Italy leading groups over the border into France for lunch and then back. He told me about all the misadventures, that came his way. Turns out this wild skiing is more dangerous than one would imagine even when your not parachuting onto virgin slopes.
Oh and despite Halloween, I have stuck to my low candy rule. There is a LOT of candy in the house and I desire none of it!!! How cool is that? Perhaps, it is simply because I am courting a fitness obsessed Dom right now. Oh no, wait, he is courting me because… oh well maybe I will tell you some other time… it’s serendipity! I am way over the halfway mark on my weight-loss plan 🙂
The best part of my weekend was spending time with my baby daddy. We had dinner together on Friday as the wunderdaughter handed out candy. I made him Pad Tai because he likes it and there are few occasions for me to make it. On Saturday, we went riding around Ile-Bizard in his noisy vintage summer car. It’s noisy in a good way except when I see it I hear Jeremy Clarkson puttin git down in my head LOL This was my vague wish from 3 weeks back. Simple, eh?! As usual we talked about geeky things and gossiped about our daughter (she hates that but she was at her dance class!) I was a little apprehensive since he told me on Thursday that he got me in his OKCupid Quiver Match email (oops!). There is a lot of personal info in my profile though it’s not scandalous. There must be a link to this blog somewhere too. I doubt he would tell me he found a door ajar on my secret life given that he had always been curious about it. That would only encourage me to close it! I can’t control who reads this anyway and have become more comfortable with my perverted self.
Last night Yoshi came over and we watched James May, I mean Top Gear. Seems like James got my note about combing his hair, even if just for the first episode! Congrats on your beautiful Lorrie and performance the first Top Gear race Captain Slow!
