500 days of summer

Watched "500 days of summer" the other night with the wife. Another, chick flick, I guess...

But, it was interesting enough. How a man can fall in love with a truly independent thinking woman, someone who does not want to be tied down, and how certain ruts along the way can be devastating to something that is actually building up.

It does play on the question of "Is it meant to be?".  Very interesting ending, as the climax is quite a shocker.  If you put yourself in that situation, and try to feel for the person being affected, it is quite a thing. It is a deep, profound, biting feeling when something like that happens.

It is a quirky film, and I assume that is from the directors style. It follows the style of an old tv series, I thought, of "Pushing Daisies" a little bit. I did not care for the style that much, but some people may like it. The shoots of people in a dreamy state, or  people thinking about situations in a dreamy state, was not quite for me.

I give this show 3.5 out of 5. Till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
