Another Dose

In the midst of proof reading my last post, I smiled. I felt warm inside. All that sentimental, 'to good to be true', 'she's compensating' jazz.In lieu of this feeling, I wanted to give you another little dose of Thanksgiving and life experiences. I don't usually post stuff like this but I wanted to share a movie trailer with you.

I was at my friends house for our weekly 'craftster night' and this trailer silenced the room. I think it's the piano. The piano has always done it for me. The piano, the metaphors, George Clooney. Oh! It's just irresistible. I probably won't see this movie, as the last movie I saw was 'Star Trek,"(which I practically had to be dragged to.) I'm not much of movie goer, but this trailer is beautiful. Enjoy it. Think about it... Are changes in order? New Year's resolutions are due soon!
EDIT: For documentation purposes, here is the unforgettable monologue from the 'Up in the Air' trailer lost to corporate greed (in case you're interested):
"How much does your life weigh? Imagine for a second that you're carrying a backpack. I want you to pack it with all the stuff that you have in your life... you start with the little things. The shelves, the drawers, the knickknacks, then you start adding larger stuff. Clothes, tabletop appliances, lamps, your TV... the backpack should be getting pretty heavy now. You go bigger. Your couch, your car, your home... I want you to stuff it all into that backpack. Now I want you to fill it with people. Start with casual acquaintances, friends of friends, folks around the office... and then you move into the people you trust with your most intimate secrets. Your brothers, your sisters, your children, your parents and finally your husband, your wife, your boyfriend, your girlfriend. You get them into that backpack, feel the weight of that bag. Make no mistake your relationships are the heaviest components in your life. All those negotiations and arguments and secrets, the compromises. The slower we move the faster we die. Make no mistake, moving is living. Some animals were meant to carry each other to live symbiotically over a lifetime. Star crossed lovers, monogamous swans. We are not swans. We are sharks. "


  1. how could anyone be dragged to such an amazing movie?? I willingly went all 3 times!


  2. It wasn't really the movie it's more the quality of two/three hours of my life....does that sound bitchy? It wasn't suppose to but I suppose it's tyical. :)
