This morning, I listened to The Dreamers (2003) soundtrack and sipped a cup of hot ginger-lemon tea. I reminisced watching the scene where Matthew, Isabelle, and Théo ran through the Musée du Louvre like in Band of Outsiders (1964). Pardon me, as I also add that to my list of goals to accomplish before I die. I cannot even fathom the fact that all three actors were 20-23 years of age when they filmed The Dreamers. How glorious! I suddenly felt inspired to re-arrange the frames and pictures in my apartment to create a sort of salon gallery. I have a mini salon in my living room made of gold frames on the right wall and wooden frames on the left. I was quite happy with the results!
Random thoughts from today: 1. Whomever was here first knows the truth and the secret to happiness. Here in the present, we are trying to figure out who was created first, who invented what first, who explored what first, "who" was "what" first. 2. The patience of a security guard. 3. A movie theatre where people go into individual booths and experience a film in first-person with added special effects like the feeling of wind, raindrops drizzling on face, etc. 4. Perhaps, the secret to happiness is to do amazing shit all the time and tell someone about it, get encouragement and positive vibes to help you keep going; sort of like how Andy Warhol telephoned his longtime friend Pat Hackett and related the events of his past twenty-four hours: where he'd gone, what he'd done, who he'd seen, and what he thought about it all.
four monks complimented my smile/ finding a $20 bill under the passenger seat of my car/ a gentleman had cut me in line at the gas station so the clerk ignored him and helped me instead/ when I asked to purchase a lighter, the clerk randomly gives me a light blue one and says, "I believe this one suits you the best."/ stumbling upon a booth strip within the "On Beauty and Being Wrong" chapter of a book I was sifting through/ finding The Lemon by Paul Bowles and The Haunted Pool by George Sand at Twice Sold Tales/
I concluded the evening by visiting Natalie in #404, where she had Eleanor and Bryan over for dinner. I also got to meet her new feline friend, BoyCat. Natalie wanted to make use of her sticky name tags, so we each wrote our names with an added fun fact about ourselves. I wrote on my name tag (as a joke): Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, with the added fun fact: I like avocados. BoyCat was so calm and good-natured, I basically chilled with him the entire time rather than be social with the other human beings in the room. I decided to leave and retire back at my apartment, where I had Travis and Zach come over for drinks and late-night conversation. We even had a mini-photoshoot (I especially like the one Zach took of me). We listened to The Graduate (1967) soundtrack and discussed our future plans for spring and summer. I can't wait!
