Rating:
3 out of 5 stars

Starring: Ewan McGregor, Renee Zellweger

Both are my favorate actors. Renee Zellweger is so good at performing in the romance comedy. May be she is not very beautiful, but I think she's charming and I like the way she acts—natural and good fun without overdoing.

The most presantly surprise is Ewan McGregor's performing. He's soooo charimatic and sexy even in a comedy. I have watched his another film The Pillow Book _that directed by _Peter Greenaway, in which Ewan acts as a bisexual translator. It was the first time I saw his performance, but I were already attracted and shocked by him.

Signs

In December every sign has its own mode
I was in love with a Sagittarius
See the emotions he put me through
From Capricorns to Aquarius
They all got their different minds
The affection of a Virgo
Which sign matches good with mine

I was in love with a Sagittarius he blew my mind
He also had a flip side too much like a Gemini
He was freaky like a Taurus the way he handled me yeah
Flirtatious like and Aries
Which sign is best for me?

I wish he was a Virgo, the same sign as me
And know how to show me love, cause I've been hurt by a Pisces

I want him sexy like a Scorpio
The way he holds me close yeah
Sensitive as a Cancer
Every sign from coast to coast

I cant explain why I love him
Bossy like Leo do
Got game like an Aquarius
Switch moves after he's been with you
Fine like a libra
He stays on my mind
He's so unpredictable
He reminds me of every sign

I like it talks about all the star signs, interesting, and cleverly worded.

there's only ever gonna be one winner in the Queen of Destiny's Child sweepstakes & and her names Beyoncι

Since Beyonce broke from Destiny's Child, due to kind of disapoitment, I haven't listened to her music till now. This was her first solo album, and her voice sounds fantastic! Although some DC fans might feel disapointed that there are too many mid-tempos and ballads, it's just my type of music, and I think the melody makes her vioce sounds even much sexier..

Favorate tracks: Be with you;Me,Myself and I; Signs; Speechless; Dangerously in Love

These are the movies that i have watched and want to review it on holidays.
How Did They Ever Make a Film of Lolita?当时的影片宣传语。

Chinese title 《一树梨花压海棠》。

想出这个中文翻译名的人有几分天才的恶趣味。和另一部经典译制片《魂断蓝桥》一样,很少有译名能如此具有中国特色同时又如此和剧情相贴切。只是,《魂断蓝桥》如同“蓝桥会”的故事一样凄美,而“一树梨花压海棠 ”,闻者不免总能感到千年前那位天才词人带点点坏心的调侃,同时有种香艳暧昧的意味.

"一树梨花压海棠”典自宋代苏东坡嘲笑好友词人张先(990–1078,字子野)的调侃之作。
据说张先在80岁时娶了一个18岁的小妾,东坡就调侃道:“十八新娘八十郎,苍苍白发对红妆。鸳鸯被里成双夜,一树梨花压海棠.”之后,“一树梨花压海棠”成为老夫少妻,也即“老牛吃嫩草”的委婉的说法.

If you believe in love at first sight, you never stop looking

Directed by Mike Nichols (The Graduate)
_Anna (Julia Roberts)_ : photographer who specializes in portraits of strangers;
Dan (Jude Law) : an obituary writer struggling to become a novelist; _Alice (Natalie Portman) _:an American stripper freshly arrived in London after a bad relationship;

lying is the most fun a girl can have while keeping her clothes on.

Larry (Clive Owen) _: a dermatologist who finds love under the most unlikely of circumstance.

Well, i haven't read the original novel, so i won't judge that whether it's a successful adaptation or not. To the film or story itself, its genre is of course romance, but i suppose that it isn't a film about love, rather one about attraction,lust and lies. This is really a very simple story happen bwteen two couples, however, the four caught in a web of passion and betrayal. After seeing this movie, i can't help to think that what is true love? There is only person in the film that i can't tell who is actually the one he loves. Dan, who r feeling immensely attracted to Alice at his first sight, but after he met Anna, he falls in love with her and tries hard to leave Alice. so does Anna. At that moment, I believe there is true love between Dan and Anna. The problem is, why such relationship could be so brittle. Dan is obvious the kind of "obsessed with truth" man. I won't feel surprised and sad that he can't get the love at the end. As to Anna, at first I couldn't understand why she came back to Larry, but now, I might know why.Because Larry is the one who dotes on her till the end.

Yet, will you choose the one you love or the one who loves you?
Is there lasting love in the modern world?
Is it really Once a cheater, always a cheater?
What's the truth?

After you watch this movie, you might ask yourself those questions or a few more.

Insomnia

现在是2005年3月21日凌晨12点半,距我来英国一晃已过半年零4日。2004年9月17日,我踏上我的英国之旅,来到一个陌生的国度,从此学习适应这里的环境和习惯一个人生活。虽然来得第一个星期已经经历了一个大抉择,到现在还不知道这样的决定对不对,但是后来的日子我总觉得我要感谢这段经历。年轻时的鲁莽和自以为是更易被谅解,我觉得它使我踏出独立的第一步。

话虽这么说,可人总是矛盾的,经过开学那一个月的扰攘总归回到平淡的学习生活。有时候,早上醒来时便有挥不去的孤零零的感觉,但也很好,让我的头脑清醒。

太快乐与接受太多宠爱会让人沉溺,孤单才让我偶而地独立.

不寄寓他人,他人亦不寓我心。
是为最牢固之恒定。

blog 热潮

写着这么多日文,是时候转下台。最近发现好多人都建立了blog,好像突然间掀起了一阵blog热潮,很多都还蛮有意思的,而且各有各的特色。想想究竟是从什么时候开始popular的呢?记得以前很多BBS都有网上日记空间,当时自己也有凑凑热闹,时不时的写点东西,后来也是不了了之。好像上年开始把,偶尔看到以前一位朋友的blog,感触良多,想不到日日见面外表温柔斯文的女孩,有着如此丰富另类的内心世界。我发觉通过文字真是可以很好的了解一个人,而blog正提供了一个广阔的空间。可惜warwick的blog不可以添加音乐,还是差了那么一点点。

spring~

warwick校园惊现樱花?!今日在tesco回来的路上,惊奇地发现了一棵开满粉红色小花的树。忍不住走上前去看个清楚,花朵小小的,像拇指大小,每朵都有5片花瓣,三三两两簇拥着枝头。树下散落了一地的粉红色花瓣,配上柔柔的阳光,好美。其实它们看上去有点像桃花,但是我却希望是樱花,加上现在正是樱花盛开的季节嘛~~やったー、春がいよいよ来て、気持ちー

Sakura???The one beside the bus station next to humanities building. who can tell me whether this is sakura or not? if not, what flower it is?
