Ratatouille :D

October 15, 2009

❤ I'm such a sucker for Pixar films. The animations of Pixar are so fluid, so witty, so clean. The Incredibles was ,well, incredible, Up was way up there on my fave list, and Ratatouille was simply delicious..so delicious that I just had to watch it again.
The idea of a five-star restaurant being run by a little rat made me snicker. He was the cleanest rat I've ever seen, plus he can cook! Remy has a gift, and he used it to make people happy with a "little" help from an ex-garbage boy. The movie never gets old…I was cracking up at the sweet old lady in the beginning who pulled out an semi-automatic. XD Linguini reminded me of myself; clumsy and unable to cook. My favorite has to be Colette though, she was a skilled chef who pinned Linguini to the chopping board with 3 kitchen knives and later made an AWESOMELY witty and fast speech about cooking.
"No! You waste energy and time! You think cooking is a cute job, eh? Like Mommy in the kitchen? Well, Mommy never had to face the dinner rush while the orders come flooding in, and every dish is different and none are simple, and all different cooking time, but must arrive at the customer's table at exactly the same time, hot and perfect! Every second counts and you CANNOT be MOMMY! "
Yes, I just had to google that out. Mhmm.
Anton Ego was also an interesting character…heck, the majority of the characters in this film was an interesting character. Each with different personalities, different point of views, and different situations. He seemed harsh and unforgiving in the beginning (I'd like your heart roasted on a spit…heheheh), but at the end of the movie he appeared kinder, more laid-back. His flashback scene made me went "Aww" since mom's cooking is always the best! Yup yup. The ending was kind of unexpected, but happy.
Oh, for my own amusement, I watched the whole thing in French with English captions…haha, the result was pathetic. I could not understand a word they say except the ratatouille (pronouced hata tu e in French) bit, "good," "I want," and some food names. I have a long way to go. Hopefully I'll be able to understand the whole movie in French 3, hopefully.
Woah, I suddenly realized how hungry I am…food movies make you like that. I DID devoured a whole tub of popcorn and a medium coke at the theater. I wonder what ratatouille tastes like, I heard it's a vegetable stew with a special gravy. Hmm…must do research and bug mom to experiment! @_@


Been thinking lately…

I dunno why, but I’ve been interesting in sci-fi and futuristic stuff lately. Maybe I’m not as down to Earth as I’d like to be, even in high school an all. I watched movies about utopias, read Fahrenheit 451 again, and watched a few Stargate episodes. Sometimes I wonder if I look forward to the future so much, why do I keep dwelling on the past?
I regretted doing this and that, and I wondered if this and that changed, what would happen to me. Then I wonder if I’m doing the right thing, taking these classes or not. It’s not that I hate choices, I hate making the wrong choices and regret about them later. I wish I don’t have to regret about my own decisions. Regrets only waste my time, but I just can’t stop regretting.I want to be able to just…go with the flow and enjoy life as much as possible. When did things get so complicated?
School is a good distraction though..so much work to do. I got a book to read for English that I haven’t even open the cover. XD
Sketching lots of stuff lately, but haven’t has the motivation to finish them. I got a bunch of animal sketches somewhere in my messy room, but I’m really lazy about finishing them. Drawing streaks come and go I guess.
I also saw this amazing sand artist on youtube that got me wonder if I will ever pull off 1/10th of what she can do. I mean, I used to scribble pictures and make those sand castles every time we have a chance to go to the beach and even went to a sand workshop when I was little but to actually tell a story, teach a lesson, and inspire people with my art? Highly unlikely. I’m more of a pencil and paper person, but I really like sand art. I like how sand is so beautiful but so easily washed away. No sand is exactly the same, so each sand art is unique. It reminds us that our life is short, but beautiful.

Officially joined CSF

I finally got the chance to turn in my application and my $10 fee…now I’m officially in 😀
The club meeting was so crowded! I was barely able to walk through the crowd and find the club leaders. Hmm, now I gotta do 4 activities per semester…hopefully the time won’t clash with French club’s activities.
French club is fun. =] I saw some of my friends there, and we watched skits about french. There were also this one French opera that was free for kids, but I didn’t go…ah well.
English is hard as usual..in one month, I did 3 essays and 3-4 short writing assignments! D: The essays were like 3-4 days apart, hardly enough time do make it as nice as possible. She graded really tough too, but I want my A and I’ma get it! >:OHmm, chapter test for Chem on Wednesday…I think I’m okay for that.
Urgh, so busy nowadays. I think I’ll push myself to finish that butterfly picture before I forget…and maybe color it with markers…lol. I need to read The Joy Luck Club too. I think it’s due…2 weeks from now? I’m not as sure of things nowadays. Self-doubting is really frustrating. Sometimes I’d hesitate and lose my chance to make a move or make the wrong move anyways. Going with your guts is harder than I thought.
According to “someone,” I could be a genius if I actually work harder and don’t procrastinate.
I find this hard to believe because I don’t think I can quit being lazy…>_>
