kate5kiwis: sanguine moments at our place


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

sanguine moments at our place

(snuggling on couch)
moi: so, how was school today? (yeah, one of those clever open ended questions)
R14: i'm just *so* tired.

phone rings, S9 beats all the other extroverts to answer it)
S9: R14, it's for you. it's Blahblah from the library.

R14: hello? oooh!! really??? (
getting rather excited in a nonchalant sorta way) wow!! thanks!!!
(leaps up and exclaims)mum!! i've won the library competition!!! (tiredness has miraculously vanished) puh-leeeeeze can we go in and see what i've won???

moi: (
dreaming of trips to paris or at least a sun drenched beach in the pacific) sure, let's go... (drags sorry butt to car, negotiates rush hour traffic, waits in car for twenty minutes in a No Parking Zone cos could not find a park, sends a million texts while waiting for Library Competition Winner to emerge)
R14: (grinning and brandishing a bright blue bag) oooh!!! ive been wanting a $2 shop springy-thingy for a-g-e-s!!!!! Blahblah is my favourite Library Lady!!!
(zips home on cloud nine and opens The Book and makes another stunning recipe, *magic muesli* or some such offering and speedily retires (still really tired, lol) to frilly pink bedroom where homework is ignored and Big Stash of library books are read until some ungodly hour.

no idea about that naff title, i just woke up from a wee nana nap cos *singing* hubby and i are off to cheapie tuesday movies tonight to see...
*drum roll*
the bourne ultimatum.

yep, bourne again.
(that wasn't mine, but i like it so much i'm stealing it)

Love Sanguine moments....they happen often here. Last week I said I was having an early night and went to bed, and then got a call to see if I wanted to go out for coffee and I was dressed and out in about 5 mins!!
Note to 'Emily' don't read the books prior to seeing the films. The books are brilliant (the last one is a brilliant sum up and end to the series) however the first movie kind of resembled the book, but the 2nd one was not even set in the same country as the original story, and didn't even have the same baddies - VERY DISAPPOINTING. However - I will add that the films are good in themselves - just disappointing if you loved the books and wanted to see them live.
