… sick day no. 5… hopefully the last…

July 5, 2006

feel funny… sluggish… my left eye is having hard time focusing… no more fever at least…
yikes…
watched “hondo” with john wayne in it… maybe it was the 3rd time…? love western movies… it’s a very nostalgic art form… there’s a good guy, bad guy, indians or native americans, old values, guilt, cowards, headstrong woman and horses… and justice… of course there are many dated, politically incorrect views represented but i’m not interested in dissecting these movies in those 21st century terms… for example in this movie, john wayne plays this half white, half apache named hondo, falling for geraldine page who lives in a house in the middle of apache territory…
eh…
why do i always feel more attached to what’s happened 50 years ago… why am more into old movies… black and white movies… nostalgic…
well…
then i watched “singles” by cameron crowe… another favorite from my high school… more enjoyable because now i get all the dialogues… and i’ve been in more relationships… still cute and certain scenes touch me in a very bittersweet way… also that car door thing… waiting to see if the girl unlocks the door for you… sweet… funny because chazz palminteri used that in “bronx tale” too but i knew it wasn’t original… also cameron crowe used “what took you so long?” just the right way… felt my heart choking for a second when scott campbell said it…
after that it was “philadelphia story” with katharine hepburn, cary grant and jimmy stewart… hard to believe but it was the very first time i’ve watched it… jimmy stewart rocks… he’s just perfect in this movie… he’s just so damn good at playing subtle things with his gestures… and the voice…! i always go back and forth about katharine hepburn but this one she was great… especially when she has those teary eyes while talking about her being like a goddess… surprisingly cary grant’s role isn’t all that appealing to me…
uh…
now i have “an american in paris” on… gotta love oscar levant… that 15-minute-long ballet sequence is absolutely brilliant… gene kelly might have been a total control freak and tyrant but still left a great body of works…
hmm…
cannot say i’m feeling great…
i feel like ranting but i’m still cyber-shy…

feel old… not aged but old…

  1. Insomnia:A few cups Saint-John’s-wort tea during the day (you may even find it as pills in a drugstore),two cups of strong orange blossom tea before going to sleep.Stomach/Tummy:Eat less shaved ice.

  2. what about flu…?broken heart…?

  3. Flu:Elder blossom/lime-tree blossom/dogrose/thyme tea, brown sugar or honey.Cook it up with water, whiskey and lemon juice.Go back under your blanket and wait until it’s gone…Broken Heart:Uuh, that’s much harder!I feel really sorry for you!That seams to be the main reason of your sikness then, under power of resistance.I wish I could help!Call all your good friends, let them visit you, let them bring you medecine, let them warm up your heart, you’re not alone.I mean it really depends on the story behind it, hmm…

  4. thanks… it’s been working…good friends are great for everything, aren’t they…must be nice to know so much about herbs/flowers and things…

  5. Thanks for the flattering.Actually I don’t know much about herbs, really.But I just go for the natural stuff if possible, it works out better most of the time…But I heard there are people out there just eating shaved ice cream and watching films when sick (-;Everyone it’s one cure.Usually, as long as it is not my chronical ear infection, I got through my music library. Most of the time I find the right background for my fever dreams.Very creative moments!
