There is so much that could be said about the wonderful woman that was Elizabeth Taylor. She was extraordinarily talented and breathtakingly beautiful. A performer for over 65 years she made a significant impact on the world of acting and will be forever remembered for her performances in films such as Cleopatra and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof just to name a couple. When she left this world it lost a little bit of its sparkle. She will be eternally missed.
One of the redeeming features of the show has got to be without a doubt Evelyn; with her extreme sarcasm and sharp wit she is truly brilliant. She always looks smart and elegant in her twin sets and brooches but don't let that lull you into a false sense of security with one word or look she can rip you to shreds and smile sweetly at the same time. She’s a masterpiece that should not be altered in anyway.
I know it’s the kind of show I should avoid and hate. But I’ve got to admit that its one of my many guilty pleasures. I try to ignore the sexist male chauvinist attitudes and focus more on the humour, which admittedly isn’t that difficult. It’s one of those shows that has a habit of making me smile. I’ve also enjoyed watching little Jake grow from a cute little boy into a gangly teenagers and of course the clashes between the completely opposite brothers Charlie and Alan. I’ve gotta admit I also don’t happen to mind the continuous stream of hot (and often semi-naked) women who make an appearance. Bonus points are achieved for having Kristin Bauer in black lingerie in the pilot episode. I personally think that's the best way to start a show.
Now Lois Lane is my kind of girl, she got brains, looks and can kick some serious ass. Being raised as an army brat she developed a tough outer shell but that doesn't mean she doesn't have a gooey centre, although she would fiercely deny it she cares. During the course of seasons I'm watching at the moment, Lois has began to really shine, its clear that she's in her element at the Daily Planet.
However I certainly wouldn't complain if her role in volved a bit more of this...
Now I started watching Smallville a long time ago, somehow along the way my interest swayed and it dropped off my radar after the season 6 finale. Luckily for me I my friend happened to have the 3 latest seasons on dvd and she insisted I watch them of course I didn't really take much persuading. So far I'm only part way through season 8 but it didn't take long for me to remember what it was I loved about the show in the first place. I've always been a bit of a comic geek, in fact I still am so superman has of course always been an interest of mine, despite the whole man rescuing damsel in distress theme that seems to be a common occurrence. I already own Lois and Clark on dvd so I certainly reveled in the opportunity to see the prequel, so to speak. Lets face it, everyone loves a superhero and I'm no exception. It may be dramatic and somewhat convenient but its also creative and enthralling. It just works.
That's what I would love my life to be. By that I don't mean all glamorous and flashy, I'm certainly not one of these people who craves stardom. I mean I want to enjoy a life filled with those moments that make you happy to be alive. The simple things that cause a smile to grace your lips. Whether that means riding a horse through an orchard with the sun shining down on you or sharing a tender kiss with the person you love. Of course I'm not going to deny that few of these moments may include pretty, shiny things but mainly they're more modest. While my life so far hasn't been exactly brimming with these special moments, I fully intend for them to feature prominently in my future. My plan, well its not really a plan so much as an intention. I want to focus on the positives, I refuse to allow the mundane aspects of life to stop me experiencing the desirable ones. You may be wondering what made me embark on this random soul searching speech, or you might not care in the slightest but I'll explain all the same. This week I told my boss and colleges I was leaving so that I could fulfil one of my long term dreams, visiting Canada. Although I utterly adore my job I came to realise that I can't let it hold me back. I'm embracing my destiny, so to speak, admittedly its one of my own creation but I think it still qualifies. I think you should all to do the same.
