This is what I've been wearing this week - Tuesday through to Friday. On wednesday, I went to watch Benjamin Button and I loved it. A few friends I have spoken to have been a bit sceptical about it and didn't want to go and see it. I was going to watch it with Scott but he was ill on Wednesday so I decided to just go it alone. And it was so worth it. I actually enjoyed going to the cinema by myself. To be, watching a film can be like reading a book - something to enjoy alone and become fully absorbed in. I can't enjoy it if I'm distracted. Then, at the end, you can discuss with other people what they thought, but the act of watching and reading is quite a solitary act.
Anyway, Benjamin Button was a beautiful film. I adored it. It was full of beautiful quotes like 'I was thinking how nothing lasts, and what a shame that is', 'we're meant to lose the people we love. How else would we know how important they are to us?' and 'Everyone feels different about themselves one way or another, but we all goin' the same way.' It was truly beautiful and I hope it does well at the Oscars.
