Is there a way to get back to an old life?
Is there a cure for regretting what I didn’t say?
Would you care if I told you now?
Do you miss me, miss me at all?
Der letzte Text – oder zumindest der Anfang davon. Der letzte, den sie geschrieben hatte, bevor es keine Melodien mehr gab.
Sie erinnerte sich noch, wie sie im Flugzeug nach London saß und die Zeilen hinschrieb. Mit leerem Herzen und einem…

Brad and Angie are cute.
Ellen thought it was really fun to embarrass Jennifer Lawrence.
The In Memoriam 2014 tribute makes everyone cry. Bette Midler makes it worse.
How do you cut someone out of your heart? Not completely – only the tiny, dumb, obstinate part that will always want more. Sometimes you can’t get over it or move on. Sometimes you are stuck with a feeling regardless of how unwanted or even ridiculous it might be.
“I was over this.” Andrea angrily sips her coffee and glares at me. I shrug. There is nothing to say. Andrea always had a thing for Mattis – they simply “clicked”. Everyone could see that, right from the beginning. The problem: Mattis was Andrea’s colleague, a fact that made the “clicking” a bit embarrassing for her.
From the second the two met, Andrea had had a crush on him. She called me that first day, saying: “Okay, I might have a huge problem.” I wholeheartedly agreed – falling for a colleague really is not a very easy situation. First it seemed like Mattis was interested, too. And then, one day, he had a girlfriend. So Andrea tried to avoid him. Not a very easy task if you are working together closely.
Then Mattis left the company. So, that should have been it. Well, it was – until that party of a friend where she met him again. Where he asked her why she never kept in touch. She pointed out that he could’ve also contacted her if he wanted to. To that he just smiled. That night Andrea went home, her head spinning. I mean he obviously liked her, right?
A few days later she broke her vow and texted him again. Asked him if he wanted to go see that movie they talked about at the cinema. He did. They went. And he asked her to meet for a drink again next week. Except now he’s “not sure if he got time for that”. That’s why we are sitting here in a café and why she’s so mad.
“I mean come on – why didn’t he just leave me alone? I was fine. I was fucking over it!” I sigh and ask: “He still has a girlfriend, hasn’t he?” She shrugs. And that just sums it up. Mattis might be interested in Andrea, but I think that he isn’t even consciously aware of it. Or maybe he is – which would make him a huge asshole.
“So you know there is only one way to end this.” She glares some more but I continue nevertheless. “You have to tell him. That’s the only way you’ll know for sure.” Her shoulders slouch. “Well right now he isn’t even returning my texts so I guess that’s that.” But we both know it’s not. Even if she and Mattis never talk again he will always be in her heart. And the tiny little question nagging “What if” will probably remain for a long time.
Life just sucks like that sometimes.
Just looked up…yup…kitty seems fine :)
Alltag kann zur stupiden Sinnlosigkeit verkommen, wenn man keinen Nutzen mehr in seinem Dasein sieht. Manchmal hilft es, eine Aufgabe zu haben – selbst wenn man sich diese erst ausdenken muss. Genau das tut Woody Grant in dem Film, gegen den ich mich bei meiner Oscar-Challenge am meisten gewehrt habe. Ich glaube, ich weiß jetzt auch warum. Hier kommt also: „Nebraska“. (more…)
next time you go to accuse a teenage girl of overreacting remember that when a bunch of elderly white men couldn’t agree on something, they shut down the government
Nur noch drei Filme, dann habe ich es geschafft einmal alle wichtigen Oscar-Filme vor der Verleihung der Academy Awards am 02. März 2014 zu schauen. Wie lange ich allerdings brauche, um die ganzen Filme dann emotional zu verarbeiten, weiß ich leider noch nicht. Egal, hier kommt die Review zu: „Her“. (more…)
