I was going to write a good post about trying to be a More Participative Writer but this looks a good a place to start as any!!

Also I went to Paris and Rome and Florence for ten days in May and it was wonderful!! Do you know that for years I used to say that all I wanted was to go to cities with roads like that? cobblestone, rough around the sides, messily-coloured, etc.; anything that wasn't Singapore's plain and grey and flat concrete, and the memory of being in a place to be able to take this photo is still what's stuck to me the most, over a month from that. I have stories, though - like how the first train I took from the Orly airport at Paris into the city had a man with an accordion get on on the first stop and a woman who sang! and the places we lingered around in because we could because it was just the two of us and no adults (my first time!)! and how I sat in front of a painting in the Louvre and read a book on my phone for 40 minutes! and how I walked around so much I had to move down two notches on my belt to keep my jeans on right and croissant and pizza and gelato and gnocchi museums and the ruins in Rome and head-splitting heat and getting a cold and drinking tea in a 104-year-old café every morning in Rome because it was five minutes away from our hostel!!! I should write that down!!! Yes!

In other news, totally found myself unexpectedly in love with New Girl (I started on episode 15 as it aired and went forward and backward at the same time over the next couple of weeks - super fucking delightful, you guys! great cast and great chemistry and good writing!) and definitely cracked up way more than I thought I would watching Veep (is the general critical consensus really 'funny but soulless'? - ok?) and loved the shows I've always loved, because we got joy and the triumph of love and friendship on Parks and Cougar Town, and because we got make-outs on Castle. !

Also I don't know what you guys are doing about The Newsroom (wow I should catch up with all of you!!!) but this interview/article is MY FAVOURITE THING IN THE WORLD. IN THE WORLD. LISTEN HERE, INTERNET GIRL!!! :D :D

Talk to me! I'm going to go to your entries and talk to you!
falulatonks: ([misc.] tv)
  1. OK, Community is brilliant, but this week's episode reminded me that sometimes this show gets a little too caught up with that brilliance and fails to let me connect with it in any other way.

    community thoughts and unnecessary feelings )

  2. 30 Rock, on the other hand, proved that it can get sweeter storylines pretty well when it wants to. 30 rock love )

  3. This week's The Office was weird because I should dislike it - it's absurd, unbelievable, and therefore mostly unlike the subtle, softer, sweeter nature of the humour that I loved this show for - but it's also ridiculously funny. the office, quickly )

  4. Modern Family this week probably had one of its funniest episodes. Loved it! modern family, quickly )

  5. Oh, Cougar Town, you are delightful and funny and also kind of heartbreaking. Thank you. cougar town, quickly )

  6. Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert's Everybody's Talking 'Bout Sully is both hilarious and ridiculously catchy. I love them a lot.

  7. I feel like I had non-TV things to talk about, but they're mostly along the lines of "studying a lot. am bored and tired and annoyed."

  8. I totally watched Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing in YouTube clips for around an hour this afternoon - so talented, so classy (and god, the moves she pulls off in heels?!). I love black and white movies because their beauty and enjoyability is almost completely reliant on their stars' talents and charms. It's simple, unpretentious, and gorgeous.

    Also, I find Cheek to Cheek intensely romantic (and that's not a word I like to use) - the way the notes climb at and my heart beats so that i can hardly speak, oh my heart. I can't be the only one who gets a little heartclutchy at these things, right?
This entry is so chatty, but I just feel like blabbering on a little bit. Sorry?
