before the nightly princess update, a quizzy type of question:
what do the following have in common?
elizabeth berkeley (showgirls)
it is something you won't in your wildest dreams imagine, the common denominator that ties these people together.
so, go to it.
she sent me a text message today. this is how the dialogue ran verbatim:
princess: Hi mum i am in sf. All ok i missing and love u.
melbournegirl: Hi darling! I have been thinking about you and i love you too. What are you doing? Mumx
p: Cheked in hotel at fisherman wharf.
mg: Are you travelling to los angeles? Hotels are fun!
p: No. Wanted 2 c Alcatraz.
mg: Who wanted to? What is alcatraz? Princess are you writing this?
p: It was a jail. Baba helping me.
mg: Ok wow a jail? So what you doing tomorrow?
p: Call me.
so i called her. for those of you wondering, i do know what alcatraz is. i was just wanting to see if she knew. the way she was writing with the u for you and c for see was kind of weird. surely, i thought, she couldn't have become text savvy in a week?
so we chat. she sounds good. any time she starts to get a little funny, ie her voice drops, i keep mine bright and ask her a practical question. i find out that they saw sea lions on the rocks in the bay and have left karen's house because "she had too many drinks and was talking about stuff from the past" which bothered lisa and princess. no further details, but you can imagine how curious i am...
i think it's good they have left. seems like they just left a day early (karen's) and i'm pleased ali is taking princess to a sightseeing destination, even if it is one of the most notorious gaols in the world.
so that's that. at the end of the call she said "i love you and i'm looking forward to coming home"
this is a big improvement. no mention of wanting to come home early. just a slight voice tremble when she was talking about ali being so busy with carpet work and about the stress. i just hope lisa can hang in there. i know how he can be.
one other thing. last night we watched sin city.
i love, love, loved it.
but can anyone comment on the lack of sequencing. do you think it was meaningful? i won't go into detail so as not to spoil, but events were out of order chronologically and i'd like to hear if anyone thinks anything about this.
any suggestions for other movies to watch? we have evenings free here at the ranch, and catching up on films is a good way to pass time.
oh, and ps. continuing the "woman who can do anything" theme:
do you remember that little scar jaime sommers had on her top lip?
16 days to go.
