wall-e? eeeeeeevvvvvaaaaa!

oh yeah! we went to see wall-e this weekend and i loved it!! it's a must see and a must buy when it comes out. it's amazing how little dialogue there is, yet there is no question about the ideas and points that the movie is conveying.

i won't spoil it--just go see it before it leaves the movie theater.

and i finally saw sex and the city--literally a month after it came out, which is crazy, seeing as how that is one of my favorite shows EVER. i was completely satisfied. it was perfectly concocted and developed. it met every expectation i had and then some. i must say that i despised carrie's choice of wedding dress....why didn't she go with the oscar de la renta one that she had on in the photo shoot? and the headpiece? hmmm, what exactly was that?

i did adore the movie though. and those wicked black dior heels she wore throughout the movie.

"the" poem gives me cold chills. i'd like to have the last few lines tattooed somewhere. i bought a book of love poems and this one in particular is the one that carrie was reading in bed. it was written by beethoven (go on with yo bad self, Ludwig!):

From "Letters to My Beloved" by Ludwig van Beethoven

Though still in bed, my thoughts go out to you, my Immortal Beloved, now and then joyfully, then sadly, waiting to learn whether or not fate will hear us -
I can live only wholly with you or not at all -
Yes, I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits -
Yes, unhappily it must be so -
You will be the more contained since you know my fidelity to you. No one else can ever possess my heart - never - never -
Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves.
And yet my life in V is now a wretched life -
Your love makes me at once the happiest and the unhappiest of men -
At my age I need a steady, quiet life - can that be so in our connection?
My angel, I have just been told that the mailcoach goes every day - therefore I must close at once so that you may receive the letter at once -
Be calm, only by a calm consideration of our existence can we achieve our purpose to live together -
Be calm - love me - today - yesterday - what tearful longings for you - you - you - my life - my all - farewell.
Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved.

ever thine
ever mine
ever ours
eeeeeek! cold chills!
