only thing to do is jump over the moon

i just spent thanksgiving inside a movie theater watching RENT with the girls...and i just have to say that i adore this movie! i loved it even better than goblet of fire and being a harry potter fan, that says a lot.

the play that is still currently on broadway and the movie has it's own merits. i loved the play for being raw and for the part where the audience gets to "moooo" with maureen, but the film gives us a lot more depth as it incorporates scenes which we knew happened in the play but was somehow implied.

things i liked in the movie:

  • the tango maureen scene- they made this a bit different for the movie adding some serious tango scenes where roger, joanne and maureen were in formal get up (idina menzel is so hot!)
  • the "would you light my candle" scene- it was somehow more fluid seeing it on the screen than on stage.
  • the "i'll cover you" scene- i swear kinilig ako dito even if it was a homosexual love affair they were having.
  • the la vie boheme scene- of course who wouldn't like this.

"there's only us

there's only this

forget regrets

or life is yours to miss

no other road, no other way

no day but today..."



so halloween is over and done with. what comes next is thanksgiving. but before that let me just tell you about the halloween party that we had. i told you the last time that i would be working that night, but the gods of halloween (if there ever is one) had been good to me because instead of going to the hospital to work, i was put on call. so four hours of the time i spent at the party, i was quite anxious that my cellphone would ring and that would be the end of all the fun.

with the witches and the fairies

the party was quite a success actually. most of the people who came were in costume especially the kids. i got to give out candies to the kids who were trick or treating. at one point i even wanted to go out in the neighborhood to go trick or treating with the kids but it was too cold outside so i chickened out.

these are some of the kids who came all dressed up for the party.

with pocahontas, cleopatra and some other characters

so until the next holiday... i am hoping we would be able to get together again on thanksgiving. good luck na lang sa turkey namin!!! :p
