my weeks are getting worse and worse. i cant believe next week is the end of term!
lots of things have happened...

i got my days mixed up and missed wm's bdae. haha... called him on his bdae night asking about bittorrent. but i really thought that day was the 22nd... oh well.

tong xin yuan - episode 41. dont ask, dont laugh either. (i dont even know if the series is out yet)

this weekend may well be out last match of the season! of cos, we will fight to make sure that its not! and its my grandaunts bdae thing... sheesh. priorities eh...

i'm starving, have presentation tml, lots of jap to do too.
and naruto didnt air last week! how much worse can life get...
at least i got a copy of howl's moving castle - the book, and d/led the show - which i cant burn cos my laptop's dvd/cd drive is dead.

ok. life CAN get worse.

i like wet plants. theres something about them that makes you think of words like "sparkling", "bright", "clean", "healthy"...
wet plants smell good too, the fragrance following a rain is nothing short of wholesome.

but of all wet plants, i like wet trees best. i think its beautiful the way the foliage seems to glow against an overcast sky. the moss and lichens on the trunk turns black after prolonged soaking, defining the plant in a way even an artist cannot. it looks like... the charred stumps of trees after a forest fire, but is lusciously undead.
the next time it rains, quit hiding under an umbrella, cursing your wet slippered feet. look around... at the wet plants...

sure hope it rains again soon.

what happens when you fall in love with someone who doesnt exist?
charming, pretty to death, dark and mysterious.
pity he has a stupid name. come on... what kind of name is "howl".

the movie was somewhat fragmented and had strange scenes and loopholes here and ther. however, i put it down to misayaki's interpretation of the book and his own creativity.
his fairytale land is absorbing and his characters are well done. mostly. calcifer, the witch of the waste and sophie in particular.
howl has his glam image spoilt by having a strange scene thrown in. you cant look at a character the same way after you've seen him throw a tantrum over hair colour, or if you've seen his butt as he droops in a posture akin to drunken stupor. which is a waste. i really kinda liked his cool, mysterious, charming image.

watch it for : great animations, kimura takuya's voice over, howl's gorgeous looks. good soundtrack. if you end up falling in love with howl, dont blame me. just join the queue.

"whats the point of living if you're not beautiful!"
