Call Me Crappy Love Supporter or Anything You Like, But Hell I Love It! :D
“After that, it got pretty late and we both had to go, but it was great seeing Annie again and I realized what a terrific person she was and how much fun it was just knowing her…and I thought of that old joke, you know, this guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, ‘Doc, uh, my brother’s crazy, he thinks he’s a chicken,’ and uh, the doctor says, ‘Well why don’t you turn him in?’ And the guy says, ‘I would, but I need the eggs.’ Well, I guess that’s pretty much now how I feel about relationships. You know, they’re totally irrational and crazy and absurd and - but uh, I guess we keep going through it…because…most of us need the eggs.” -Woody Allen in Annie Hall
The famous line from my favorite woman of all time in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Yes, it would be definitely Audrey Hepburn. Okay. Who doesn’t love her? :p
We all know she was so effortlessly demure and supremely glamorous in that movie. Everbody knows it. Again, who doesn’t? Tee-hee.
But do you know?
As a fan of Audrey (even if it’s not in a hardcore way yet), I was surprised I had never seen one movie of her called Two For The Road. Has anyone seen it? I have her biography book and I couldn’t find any of her filmography history with Two For The Road in it.
Yes I already know about Sabrina, Roman Holiday or again, Breakfast at Tiffany’s for iconic romance of all time. But Two For The Road? Nayyyy…. Never.
I haven’t watch this movie yet so I browsed and got it from You Tube and whatsoever.. And I was quite surprised… Audrey Hepburn has a little bit different looks and style in this movie. She’s not so glamorous as we can see it in any other movies she was in, but ummm.. she’s just naturally pretty, a girl next door type.
Check these out.
Give me Audrey, her outfits in that beach, and I’m pretty much impressed.
Love, love, love, love, loveeeeeeee the sunglasses.
Audrey Hepburn on flat shoes? In a party? Baby, I’m sold!
Again… Sunglasses. Pretty and bold! Hiks!
See what I mean? She’s on long sleeve-turtle neck shirt and denim. It’s so not Holly Golightly!
My thoughts about moving into my new place makes me simply nervous.. It made me think about where I might draw inspiration if I want to decorate. (it will reduce my nerves a bit, yea?)
This is the entrance. Yep, i like it to be a little bit cluttered, makes me feel comfortable. There it is, on the right side.. where I’ll put all of my books! :D (taken from Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment in Sex and The City)
And a single touch of Holly Golightly’s apartment in Breakfast at Tiffany’s :
This is my favorite part! The bedroom!
There,there! my private door to my closet.. It’s a small one… big mirror of course! :p (taken from An Education movie)
As she so quickly said ‘Yes’ to every questions he asked her, lovingly called him, he was a verbal and as witty as she. He was funny and self-deprecating, the kind of guy you were excited to introduce your friends, the one you could imagine watching DVD with every Sunday morning. Even your meanest girlfriend loved him.
But… there’s always a but.
No matter how many times she and him got separate, they always managed to wind up in each other’s arms. Until one day, there’s nothing left to said. She doesn’t know the thought of him leaving her terrifies her so much. Which is why, in the end, she thinks when he takes off, she doesn’t need any explanations. They’re in silence, she just knows that in her head.. it makes sense.
If.. (and there’s always an ‘If’, yea?)
If they had met a couple of years earlier, maybe they could have make it work.
When it comes to me and love, my friends tend to have strong opinions. Because I often espouses a traditional view of men, marriage or commitment. Those who agree with me cheer me on and make me confident.. while I know, those who disagree with me throw me the marvelous face. Some say, it’s because my pride. Some say, I’m too naive. Whatever it is, I would love to stick to things called : idealism and preseverance. (yeah.. they’re valid for love too)
Those things caused me these labels on my head : hardly struggled to find a man, seem impossible to meet, utterly unrealistic and don’t forget things they said to me.. (I call them The -Y gang) : choosy, picky, moody, unlucky.
But hey, why bother?
I don’t say love if I don’t feel love.
I don’t fly if there’s no butterfly in my stomach.
Why do we have to be insist?
Why do we have to be in hurry?
Why do we have to sacrifice the comfortness.. of being in love?
