Love Actually

La belle Sandrine m’a dit, « chaque boîte a son couvercle, Norman ».

Box
Fish, and plankton. And sea greens, and protein from the sea.

Perhaps. But in a world full of boxes and covers, I increasingly feel that I’m the odd ball. Still, you never know. Maybe there’s another odd ball out there just waiting to bounce around with me.



Ignore the jaded remarks on commercialism and words of despair from those who’ve given up. If you’ve got someone to love, then show them you love them; and if you don't, then take comfort in knowing you’re not really alone. Me? I’m going to spend the night with some comfort food, Love Actually or The Princess Bride, and episodes of Ten’s Offspring.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

If looking for something a bit more mentally engaging, try Stranger Than Fiction. More old school, try The Apartment. More lupine, try Moonstruck. Enjoy StV-Day!

Never seen Moonstruck; of the remaining two, I'm a big fan of The Apartment. However, I'll stick with sugary sweet comfort over mentally engaging, for today.
