|This view out Jess' window MURDERS me. This is what she sees when she wakes up EVERY FUCKING DAY.|
And Nov 2012. I didn't do ANYTHING this year again. This was the worst one. I don't think I asked a single kid what he or she was thankful for this entire month. I'm being serious.
|Isn't this a cool shot? She's on the bed inside, and Scott is out on the patio with me, that's his reflection on the glass in front of Daisy.|
You know what sums up friendship for me? Like, awesome friends friendship? That scene at the end of one of those Lord of the Rings movies. Now, I'm not a Lord of the Rings fan. I almost stopped reading PW when she admitted that she thought one of those movies was the best movie ever, that she thought it should have beaten Forrest Gump. PUH-LEASE.
But anyway. Elijah Wood is like carrying this necklace or ring or whatever to throw it into the lava (does that sound at all correct? I did see all three movies, but I can't promise I was awake for the majority. But I think I have the jist here. No? And is it gist?) Anyway, the necklace is making him sick or something. Maybe even killing him? And Sean Astin from Rudy (and The Goonies!!!) for some reason isn't allowed to just take the necklace and do it himself, since he's healthy and Elijah Wood is in really bad shape by now. I would go so far as to say maybe Rudy would die or something if he took the necklace. The ring. Isn't that it? Won't the ring make him go crazy or something?
ANYWAY. So Rudy finally says something along the lines of Hey! You know what? I can't take this ring (necklace?) from you and do this for you. I can't lift your burden and I'm so sorry. But you know what I CAN do Elijah Wood? I can carry YOU. And then (I think) he like carries Elijah Wood up the mountain to throw it in the lava. (I might rent this movie. Any idea which of the three it is?)
And that's friendship. And you know who you are, and I'm not going to name names and get all emotional and having FEELINGS. You know who you are and that I can't do this without you and I love you and appreciate everything you do.
And you know what? True, I didn't read the books and I apparently don't remember the movie that well. But I remember leaving that theater thinking Hey, screw Elijah Wood, whatever, Rudy is the real hero of that story.
