I I cannot begin to explain my infatuation with this movie… from the simplicity of reading a book out of doors while walking, to the misunderstandings of attraction, to the fashionable and less fashionable sides of love, the humor… the heartbreak and longing… it has possessed me body and soul…
…or in this case, vintage GIF of the week…

…by the time I’m done the new Anna Karenina movie, starring Keira Knightley, will be out, thus saving me from the torment of getting though all the pages on my Kindle…okay, it’s not torment. I actually love reading it. It was the first tomb of a book I downloaded back in January. No, I’m not that slow of a reader, but with any disastrously long novel, I kind of lose it mid-way, and find myself veering off to other literary terrains. I feel a wit-bit guilty, since this is so thought of as one of the ultimates in classic literature. So my goal is to finish this book in the next week if possible. My Kindle says I’m at 64% into the story since it doesn’t display page numbers. Can I finish it? Do I have a chance?
So here’s the beautiful preview of Anna Karenina. It looks breath-taking, though the Vronsky actor choice has me confused. Keira looks like perfection however.
…well, it’s my birthday too, babe!!
Memorable last lines from 16 Candles, my favorite birthday movie of all time:
Happy Birthday, Samantha. Make a wish.
Well, it already came true.
