Day 131 – #11 Watch Top 10 Films – Completed!!

31 05 2010

As you can see – I watched this a fair old while ago – I didn’t realise that I hadn’t updated my blog.  Things have been a bit busy and I’ve not been keeping on top of it.

So.  It’s a Wonderful Life.  I did like watching it.  I liked Clarence best.  I got a bit fed up with George Bailey.  What a self-absorbed bore he became!  Still, once Clarence got on his case he improved vastly.  I can’t understand the hype around it but I did enjoy it 🙂

Day 119 – #11 Top Ten Films…… nearly there!

3 05 2010

Just finished watching Schindler’s List.  It’s probably just as long as Godfather 2 but infinitely better.  I was expecting it to be far more harrowing – but because I knew about the horrors already it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting.

My heart was in my mouth when the train of women went to Auschwitz instead and they were all in the shower with their hair cut 😦    Awful.  I thought the ending was particularly moving.

All in all, an excellent film.  Probably the best one on the list so far.  It’s a Wonderful Life will have to be good to top this.

Day 118 – #87 Find a new perfume to be “mine”

2 05 2010

I love it, I love it, I love it!  Mark bought me a bottle of this back from Spain and it smells gorgeous!  This is a perfume I think I could wear forever and not be bored of it.  I’ve got it on right now and keep sniffing myself 🙂

It’s not such an intense smell as EDP No 5.  With that you kind of need to put it on the day before – but this is *much* nicer.

The only problem is it could cost me a lot of money.   Might have to have this permanently on my birthday lists – either that or badger anyone who goes abroad to get me some duty-free!
