“There’s a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasn’t because I thought I’d be happy alone; it was because I thought if I loved someone and it fell apart, I might not make it. It’s easier to be alone because what if you learn that you need love and then you don’t have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage; it’s life, dying. The only difference is death ends.
This, it could go on forever.”
Unaccompanied Minor, Grey’s Anatomy
“There are dreamers and there are realists in this world. You’d think the realists would find the realists and dreamers would find the dreamers, but more often than not, the opposite is true.
You see, the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists… Well, without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.”
– Punkin Chunkin, Modern Family
I need to find my realist.
(Okay someone needs to stop succumbing to the distractions of the internet & start distracting herself from such distractions so that someone can actually stop being distracted from the distracting mountain of assignments SHE SHOULD NOT BE DISTRACTED FROM)
I have started losing my faith in Miss World.
I always had the impression that the lady with the outstanding poise, beauty, personality, strong opinions & intelligence, would be honoured with the tiara and that prestigious title.
Sure, there’s always the shallow side to the whole she-bang:
beauty still triumphs.
But I really thought India would win, not Russia. At the final stage where the 5 finalists were asked that make or break question, India answered hers pretty well. I thought her points were strong & reasonable, and she didn’t go over the top with the sucking up to the host country, albeit being a bit too long and had to be cut off.
Trinidad & Tobago quoted too much, and if South Africa had won it’d just be too much of a cliché.
Granted, Russia stood out with her astounding (there’s really no other way to describe it) beauty that I imagine anyone would literally kill for, just to have a day with that face, but with a face like that I’d expect something more to complete the package.
Her answer for the final question was short, too simple. Maybe there was a translation breakdown somewhere with the translator, but the fact that she couldn’t answer in English as well just irked me a little bit.
There’s a reason it’s called ‘Miss World’, innit?
AND HER EXPRESSION THROUGHOUT THE ENDING WAS SO PLASTIC!
If it was me who had won that crown that I’d worked my ass off so hard for the last year, I’d be laughing, crying, hugging the runner-ups even though its like a big F-you to them but at least I’m showing some kind of evidence that I’m human and not just sit there, FROZEN, with a perfect plastic smile on my face.
This is why I should not waste my time watching mindless, empty shows and just go back to Will & Grace when it comes to late night entertainments.
“I’ve been waiting and waiting for you, & I did this
stupid, embarrassing, humiliating, corny thing;
I was just gonna tell you,
that this over here is our kitchen,
and this is our living room,
and over there, that’s the room where our kids could play.
I had this whole thing about how I was gonna built us a house,
but I don’t build houses, because I’m a surgeon.”
“I’m still mad at you, and I don’t know if I trust you;
I want to trust you, and I don’t know if I do,
so I’m just going to try.”
“I’m going to try & trust you, cos I believe that
we can be extraordinary together, rather than ordinary apart.”
If only life was this wonderful, this lovely, with the movie script ending and all the works.
Oh damn, I’m addicted to Grey’s again. Contrary to what I expected, the new twists in the plots add a refresher to the whole thing. And Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) is so sexy, with & without the tears.
I want Season 4’s soundtrack album please.
