On Thursday, Ø and I watched the new one:
And I must say, it was very disappointing, but perhaps because my expectations were so high. I love the style of roaring twenties -- I used to have a 20's themed party in college, where we had a door that you could get through only by knowing the right password, bathtubs filled with 'bootleg' beers, various cocktails, flapper dresses, gambling tables, and of course, fake cigarettes. Also, I love the director, so I expected this to be a fantastical experience. However, everything fell a little bit short of my expectation. For some reason, the trailer was much better than the actual movie. Everything was a bit too exaggerated, and still, lackluster.
Then on Saturday, Ø and I watched the old one:
And to be absolutely honest, it was a bit disappointing too...because peopled seemed old, and the party scene was ... well, not as crazy as one would expect from the text. Also, I couldn't get over how unattractive daisy was in the old one.
And then on Sunday, I re-read it. I must say, reading the book was probably the most enjoyable, given how depressing the story actually is.
We did other things too...like have some Mexican food....
|Visited my grandparents...|
|Took a walk after visiting my grandparents...|
|Saw some funny signs...|
|Found funny photoshop pictures... (which one is the original?)|
|Watched some work-out people...|
|I love this picture. It makes me so happy|
|So does this one|
It was a chill and sweet weekend...which always makes Monday so difficult to face.
