Never mind, the good weather has afforded me time to wander around in the yard and go bike riding with Seth, so it won't take long to wind back a few winter sins - well at least that's what I am telling myself.
Isn't it funny how you always notice every little imperfection on your own body, but see so much merit in other people's curves and generous booties. I think that it would be great if we could see ourselves with more forgiving eyes rather, than the judgmental ones that we run over ourselves all the time. I'm sure that we would see more of the things that we liked and less of the things that we want to change. I do try to find things about my body to like, but the older that I get , the more difficult that that practice is becoming. My eyes just go straight to the horrid parts, all of which seem to be slowly dragging further south every time I dare to look. I find myself saying things like 'where the fuck did that come from?' or 'did that always look like that?' or my personal favourite 'lets just pretend that I never saw that.'
I can only assume that these thoughts are going to escalate as time marches forward, hopefully my eye sight will have completely given out by then, and I will only look in the mirror without my glasses on and therefore be blissfully unaware of my saggy bottom and razor strap breasts. Yes, that's the plan - blind, fat and unaware of how I look, sounds feasible. Good plan, it just might work!
Release Date: 2009
Running Time: 95 mins
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Tom, a man looking for love when he meets Summer (Zooey Deschanel), a girl who doesn't believe in true love. A slightly corny plot line, but overall I think that Marc Webb did a decent job in trying to explore the complications and baggage that people bring to relationships.
This movie is far more interested in exploring feelings and expectations of love than actually being about love, if that makes any sense. The couple are ridiculously good looking, not a blemish to be seen anywhere, and their super Indy dress sense and at times seemingly purposeless off-beat behaviour is a bit clique, but all that aside, this film has a voice and for a romance movie it is more than tolerable.
FINAL SAY: There's no such thing as love, it's fantasy.
