Pretzels

“These pretzels are making me thirsty.” This is one of the first popular lines to emerge from the sitcom Seinfeld. The New York Post listed the “pretzels” line as one of “Seinfeld’s 25 greatest contributions to the English language.” Seinfeld is my favourite sitcom in television history.Temperatures will drop below 30 degrees Celsius next Wednesday. Hooray! It’s about time… This heat is making me thirsty and leaving me longing for ice cream.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Enough Said

Enough Said: I’m a romantic fool. I should hang my head in shame for having let this particular movie stay under my personal radar last year. And you should hang your head in shame for falling asleep watching this movie, Mr. Bowie! This melancholy movie will make you laugh and leave you in tears. Enough Said is a romantic comedy about middle-aged parents with broken relationships and kids about to leave home. It’s a romantic comedy that is romantic and funny and I mean really funny. The film stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus, James Gandolfini (in one of his final roles), Toni Collette, Catherine Keener, Ben Falcone, and Toby Huss. The film is written and directed by Nicole Holofcener. I loved Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Elaine Benes in Seinfeld, and James Gandolfini for everything he’s been in.

Enough Said happens to be the second-to-last film with James Gandolfini in the cast. He died in June 19, 2013 from a heart attack at age 51. James Gandolfini will appear next September in the film The Drop, adapted from a Dennis Lehane story. The film is directed by Michaël R. Roskam, a Belgian film director known for Bullhead (2011). Bullhead was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2012.

Now excuse me, there’s someone knocking on my door. Could that be Julia Louis-Dreyfus? Okay, I’m a romantic fool…

How to tell when you are finished reading the newspaper. Don’t be offended, Blondie. You’re done reading the newspaper. Let’s hope it just means that Mr. Bowie wants your attention and you can stay for coffee and dessert. But judging by the look on his face…

“It’s amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always just exactly fits the newspaper.” – Jerry Seinfeld
