I'm so out of practice I can't even think of a title for this post


When you dream about Keanu Reeves offering to teach you how to drive a stick and kissing you with a mouthful of tapioca in front of a nighttime parade of little girls dressed in tulle carrying fishing poles strung with mardi-gras beads and singing a song about Kwaanza, it must be a sign that you're neglecting your blog.

Or something.

So.....there's an article in UK's april Hello magazine that has some nice quoteables including this bit of swoonery:

"I'm not a loner and I'm not introverted. What do I find romantic? Hmm. The thing that comes to me right now is it's so lovely to spend time in the morning with someone in bed when you just kind of like play with your feet, you're hanging out and you look at each other and spend time talking and laughing in bed... Yeah. That's a great time."

Also the beginning part with the crumbs is adorable.

There's a scene in the original Il Mare that has the male lead doing some beautiful artful food prep alone in the house. When I saw it I thought about how wonderful it will be to watch Keanu do the scene.

I thought of it when I read in the article where he talks about his lack of expertise in the kitchen:

"What's great about the house is I have a great kitchen. Friends say they love to cook there. They cook. I clean. We eat. We drink a little Bordeaux. It's great."

I'd always imagined Reeves to secretly be this great cook, being the perfectionist he is and all. Now I envision him staring baffled at a hunk of unsliced proscuitto, a baguette and a few condiments and ultimately eating raviloi straight from the can over the sink when no one else is around.

Sweety, that's not a sign that you've neglected blogging, that's a wet dream, LOL
*dissolves into a giggling fit*

I want some of your meds ;-)

I would continue to imagine Reeves as a great cook--I don't believe everything I read in Hello... *wink* ...especially since the cooking quote and the toes quote appeared somewhere else earlier this year, so they're not original to Hello.

I did like the crumbs vignette, I'm hoping that really happened.

Glad to see you back, I know tax time is a busy time for you. *smoochies*

PS you've SEEN the original?? hmmm...I didn't know it was out here! Should I try to see it? or stay unspoiled??

I rented the original from Netflix so it's definitely available. It's a lovely film, but yes to watch it might spoil you for sure. I'm not sure what will be changed for this version but I imagine some things (besides locale) will. The original seemed too uncomplicated for a straight remake. If anyone is looking for something to whet their whistle, I'd recommend checking out the director's film Valentin, which I adored.

Ha ha ha! She may be rusty on post titles, but she definitely hasn't forgotten how to do the rest.

Glad to see you're up for reading and blogging krix sweetie. :D

I like the beard.

Posted by: Cake on April 20, 2005 03:09 PM

how about "tapioca kisses" or "driving the stick" -- okay, you see where you've got me headed here? heh, i said "headed"... time for a cold shower. ;)

Posted by: lori on April 21, 2005 06:40 AM

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeew! Tapioca!

How about some nice, warm dutch apple pie with french vanilla ice cream?

Now there's an idea...*drifts off to investigate the possibilities*

That dream made me laugh out loud, but the tapioca made me gag.

Posted by: justJENN on April 21, 2005 10:23 AM

Great kitchen! Huge kitchen! It´s my dream for a long time. I have an idea for rebuiding a great barn to cottage with large kitchen in the center and some small sleeping rooms around. Now I have kitchen so small that if we are two in there i can´t cook (just „drive a stick“) :-D

Posted by: vika on April 21, 2005 01:33 PM

krix! I so miss you! Great to see you blogging and LMAO at your dream! I'm never going to eat tapioca pudding the same, LOL! I watched the original Il Mare Tuesday night, loved it! I hope to see all the actions from letters they wrote to each other in the new one and I'm totally picturing Keanu cuddling with Cola (hope they change the dog name for the new one!). Hope things are going well for you and it's great to have you back! ssssmmooocccccchhh

Posted by: Jena on April 21, 2005 07:37 PM

I'm so craving apple pie with french vanilla ice cream on it right now!

Posted by: Jena on April 21, 2005 07:39 PM

Yeah, I'm digging the pie a la mode too...tapioca? not so much. Although I'd probably eat anything if Reeves were involved...

Posted by: Nudel on April 22, 2005 05:32 AM

Hey, I NEED some of those meds!!! What a wild dream. I'll admit it, Keanu could kiss me with whatever he wants in his mouth.

Happy to see you up to blogging again. Missed that hilarious imagination of yours. You make me lol. Wishing you continued improvement back to health.
