Friday and saturday.

2 happy days.
I was not unhappy even for a second on these two days. Isn't that an achievement?
Around 9 p.m friday, it sort of hit me that i've been happy throughout and i thought
2 more hours and i'll be in bed with my small victory. I should admit that at this point 
i sort of manipulated the rest of the day a wee bit. Smiles smiles.

We watched 'Lord of the rings: Fellowship of the Ring 'for the next 2 hours. Every time i watch that movie i get suspended from reality and roam around with the hobbits, the elves, the dwarfs into a different land, different time... JRR Tolkein created a whole new language while writing this book. He created Elvish. The letters, words, phonetics, grammar and everything that comes with creating a language. And he being a professor was supposed to have been a brilliant one at that too. I wish i could sit in one of his classes. What a religious experience that would be. Listening to Old english as it should be spoken. Not understanding a word of it yet being fully alive at that moment! Anyway with such thoughts there was no space for anything sad in my mind.

Saturday started as usual and i had forgotten all about my little achievement till mid-day, we were already at the mall waiting to watch 'The Golden compass'. Tanya was all excited. She wanted to ride 'Iorek Byrnison', the huge Polar Bear. She was fidgeting in the seat until he appeared, with Ian McKellan's voice booming, Iorek the bear bounced up and down and tanya was in squeals. I was shoo- shooing her.(pssst. only for others' sake secretly enjoying her thrills) Nothing about the movie itself. Rest assured. Wouldn't spoil your movie day. Well, the day ended with us buying Transformers from Direct T.V. watched that too for the second time. An instant classic. I love the movie. The concept, the visuals and to top it all phenomenal dialogue delivery. Recipe for success.   

Yes. Movies. Two days of perpetual indulgence. Superficial you say. I say nah! Anything creative that has the ability to keep you in that state cannot be superficial.

i totally understand. though indulging in watching movies always leaves a guilty hangover for me. but yeah, it depends on the kind of movies you watch. i felt awfully good after V for Vendetta, few good men and few others...

movies are my life line.....its sometimes better to watch interesting movies than to read entire books (time).....you are absolutly right, they cant be superficial :).
Sometimes it is how one perceives them that is important. If solely entertainment then gr8 but if you try to draw parallels to your life then you are on the edge of paranoia :)
Also lat thx for the forum - dd got in touch with me via email - have sent him a response.
