I've been practicing my shorthand again today, it's been going alright. I got bored after two hours though so my mind wandered elsewhere, into the kitchen to eat a hot cross bun with a cup of tea. Going to take my dog (Ash) out later in the snow with the boy, which should be cute.
I couldn't think of a better day to watch Splat! Which is the 3rd to last Sex and The City episode ever, and my personal favourite episode ever. It's been snow snow snowing so much today. It looks gorgeous outside, so calm. A white blanket covering the trees and grass. It's getting pretty thick! I love it in Splat! where Carrie describes the silent snow as "White Noise."
"The city was silent. There were no more questions. Only white noise."
Another reason I love this episode is the drama and emotion which is put into the argument between Carrie and Miranda. It's really powerful.
"I think you're making a mistake."
"Carrie, you can't quit your column; it's who you are!"
"No it's not who I am! It's what I do! That's my column. You know, I think I should go home."
"What!? I'm not allowed to have an opinion?"
"Oh, you have an opinion, you've had it for quite some time."
"What are you going to do over there without your job? Eat croissant?!"
"Why can't you been happy for me?"
"I'm sorry but, I don't understand why you have to move away and give up your life."
"You moved to Brooklyn!"
"That's just Brooklyn!"
"I cannot stay in New York and be single, for you!"
"This is about you, as long as I'm here, in the same place, writing my column, then nothing has really changed."
"No this is about you."
"No. You moved on, Charlotte's moved on, even Samantha's moved on! I can stay here and write about my life, or I can go with him and live my life."
"You mean his life?"
"Carrie I love you, come on!"
"Then just say it, you don't like him."
"Fine, I don't like him."
"Then don't you, go to Paris with him."
"You're living in a fantasy!"
