Maybe i should move to Sweden

Because according to Lookbook, every man there looks and dresses like this.

I live in Brighton, men here are supposed to dress well. What's going wrong?!

Wise words from an adorable man

Joey Comeau always has something cool to say to cheer me up. Here's a little bit of wisdom to which i strive to adhere.

Man, I was thinking about unrequited love. I figure it's best to just walk that shit off. Find someone else to be excited about. It's like if you love ice cream but your ice cream man friend won't give you any. Maybe he's got a good reason. It cuts into profits. Who knows? But he likes you as a friend and wants to hang out anyway. It just drives you crazy to hang out with that dude, even if he's being reasonable from his point of view. So don't hang out with him. What, you ONLY like ice cream? It's ice cream or nothing? Don't be an asshole. Learn to love donuts.

Something to think about, even if you do prefer ice cream to donuts.

"Shall we see if that booth still works?"

Before Sunrise is in my top 10 films of all time, i absolutely love it and it makes me go all gooey every time i watch it. There is one particular scene which makes me giggle like a gurgling toddler (anyone who knows me knows that this is my very contented laugh reserved for moments of supreme contentedness). This scene is here, for your enjoyment, and to make you gurgle too.
No context is really needed, and if you haven't seen the film then go out and watch it right now. Basically they met on a train and spend the evening walking around Vienna. This scene takes place about a third of the way through the film, when they are still getting to know each other.

If i can direct a scene as perfect as this one, i'll be a happy girl.
Hope that made your day a little brighter.
