Jerry Maguire (written by Cameron Crowe)

"Jerry: Hello. Hello. I'm looking for my wife...

Dorothy looks up, robbed of words. Stunned, she does not move and looks quite apprehensive.

Jerry: Wait. Okay, okay. Okay. If this is where it has to happen, then this is where it has to happen. I'm not letting you get rid of me. How about that? This used to be my specialty. You know, I was good in the living room. They'd send me in there, I'd do it alone. And now I just... I don't know. But tonight, our little project, our company, had a very big night. A very, very big night. But it wasn't complete, wasn't nearly close to being in the same vicinity as complete, because I couldn't share it with you. I couldn't hear your voice, or laugh about it with you. I missed my wife. We live in a cynical world, a cynical, cynical world, and we work in a business of tough competitors. I love you. You complete me. And if I just had...
Dorothy: (interrupting) Shut up. Just shut up.....You had me at hello. You had me at hello. "

Couldn't help posting it...

Yes, the movie is a bit of a classic, oldish one; yes, the love story is more than undesirable for anyone who dreams about Hollywood-branded kind of a romance; indeed she is not the self-suficient, indestructible sort of a woman...But to me, tonight, when I happend to re-watch the film, the entire realism of their "thing" stroke me as ravashing.

I do understand commitment, and loyalty and some parts of love..I definetly appreciate her forgiving and kind nature, as I realize women usually lack that sooo badly!And obviously I am intrigued by he's getting a hold of himself and coming to his senses.. But how realistic is this at the end of the day? And how do you really judge a "happy ending"?

oh,dear..The things we think and do not say...


It's beginning to look a lot like winter..

It started snowing in my town today..After quite a wait, I woke up in a discrete white scenery. The first thought that crossed my mind made me search the following lines up and post them :)

A-nceput de ieri sa cada
Cite-un fulg, acum a stat,
Norii s-au mai razbunat
Spre apus, dar stau gramada
Peste sat.

Nu e soare, dar e bine,
Si pe rau e numai fum,
Vintu-i linistit acum,
Dar navalnic vuiet vine
De pe drum.

Sint copii. Cu multe sanii
De pe coasta vin tipind,
Si se-nping si sar razind;
Prin zapada fac matanii

Gura fac ca roata morii:
Si de-a valma se pornesc,
Cum prin gard se galcevesc
Vrabii gurese, cind norii
Ploi vestesc.

Cei mai mari acum, din sfada,
Stau pe-ncaiereste pusi:
Cei mai mici, de foame-adusi,
Se scancesc si plang gramada
Pe la usi.

Colo-n colt acum rasare
Un copil, al nu stiu cui:
Largi de-un cot sunt pasii lui,
Iar el mic, caci pe carare
Parca nu-i.

Haina-i maturind pamantul
Si-o taraste-abea-abea;
Cinci ca el incap in ea;
Sa mai bata, soro, vintul
Dac-o vrea!

El e sol, precum se vede,
Ma-sa l-a trimis in sat,
Vezi, de-aceea-i incruntat,
Si s-avanta, si se crede
Ca-i barbat!

Cade-n branci si se ridica
Dand pe ceafa putintel
Toata lana unui miel-
O caciula mai voinica
Decat el...

Si tot vine, tot inoata,
Dar deodata cu ochi vii,
Sta pe loc - sa mi te tii!
Colo, zgomotoasa glota
De copii!

El degraba-n jur chiteste
Vrun ocol, caci e pierdut,
Dar copiii l-au vazut!
Toata ceata navaleste

"Uita-i, ma, caciula, frate,
Mare cat o zi de post
Aoleu, ce urs mi-a fost!
Au sub dansa sapte sate

Unii-l iau grabit la vale,
Altii-n gluma parte-i tin
Uite-i, fara pic de vin
S-au jurat sa-mbete-n cale
Pe crestin!

Vine-o baba-ncet pe strada
In cojocul rupt al ei
Si incins cu sfori de tei,
Sta pe loc acum sa vada
Si ea ce-i.

S-otereste rau batrana
Pentru micul Barba-Cot.
-"Ati inebunit de tot-
Puiul mamii, da-mi tu mana
Sa te scot!"

Cica vrei sa stringi cu paie
Focul cand e-n clai cu fan,
Si-apoi zici ca esti roman!
Biata bab-a-ntrat in laie
La stapan.

Ca pe-o bufnit-o-nconjoara
Si-o petrec cu chiu, cu vai,
Si se tin de dansa scai.
Plina-i stramta ulicioara
De alai.

Nu e chip sa-i faci cu buna
Sa-si pazeasca drumul lor!
Rad si sar intr-un picior,
Se-nvartesc si tipa-ntruna
Mai cu zor.

Baba si-a uitat invatul;
Bate,-njura, da din mani;
-"Dracilor, santeti pagani?
Maica mea! Sa stai cu batul,
Ca la cani!"

Si cu batul se-nvirteste
Ca sa-si faca-n jur ocol:
Dar abia e locul gol,
Si multimea navaleste
Iarasi stol.

Ba se rascolesc si canii
De prin curti, si sar la ei.
Pe la garduri ies femei,
Se urnesc mirati barbatii
Din bordei.

-"Ce-i pe drum atata gura?"
-"Nu-i nimic. Copii srengari."
-"Ei, auzi! Vedea-i-as mari,
Parca trece-adunatura
De tatari"

George Cosbuc - 1896 Fire de tort


Top10 New Year resolutions

NY(to be read as New Year, not New York!) is the only mere celebration of time passing (us) by.. In my case that always forces me to get introspective and assess various aspects in my life..How much have I learnt this past year?How much have I seen? What was good? What did I miss? Where did I miss out? ..I can hardly answer Why?, for it just implies too much effort as I see it!

Inevitably, that introspection turns to thoughts of self-improvement and the annual ritual of making resolutions, as I previously blogged about, which offer the first of many important tools for remaking, reshaping ourselves, growing and blossoming...

The following list is the result of an extensive survey, which consisted of over 300,000 responses worldwide.

1. Lose Weight and Get in Better Physical Shape
Do we ever like the way our bodies actually look like?Are we ever fit enough, or pretty enough? Do magazines picture ever make us feel better rather than depress us?...Can we quit the chocolate addiction? :)

2. Stick to a Budget
I have the impression this one was influenced and directed to women mostly too..

3. Debt Reduction
No comment, I am only 21.

4. Enjoy More Quality Time with Family & Friends
Since Christmas is so close as a time range, it would happen for this to pop up.

5. Find My Soul Mate
This one needs no further eleboration :D

6. Quit Smoking

7. Find a Better Job
Maybe.We are currently dealing with a serious financial crisis!

8. Learn Something New
..Every day!That is what they taught me in school.

9. Volunteer and Help Others
Checked in my case.(this is too americanized honestly speaking!)

10. Get organized.
Definetly a possibility!

REFERENCE: These results were gathered from here.

So... what are your 2009 resolutions? Anything more creative and inovative?

Pam Pam..

Ain't it funny? it all evolves, and grows, and you get here again? I stand today (almost) at the edge of the new and fresh and sparkling-shiny 2009. For the time being, there is not one reason why not entering it with all the confidence and optimism in the world!

It is only that I hate, sincerely, I loath the "self-debriefing" that should be taking place sometime these days! How was 2008?What did you do well? What could be improved?Why...? How...? And the queue can go on and on and on... This self-inspection process, that is natural and that must (I never believe in this verb) take place, at least from time to time, seems so big, so huge, so enormeous a cliche right now that the mere thought about it spoils it all for me!

I deeply support a "no regrets" policy of living your life..As long as the learning process about yourself and for yourself still happens in more, let's call it, un-orthodox manners.

2009 resolutions for me?
...just one for now: THE BEGINNING OF THE BLOG! :)
