My Best Friend's wedding


Summary: (From Wikipedia)

Julianne Potter a 27-year-old New York restaurant critic, receives a call from her longtime friend Michael O'Neal. In college, the two made an agreement that if neither of them were married by the time they turned 28, they would marry each other. Three weeks before her 28th birthday, Michael tells her that in four days, he will marry Kimmy Wallace, a 20-year-old University of Chicago student from a wealthy family.

Julianne is upset that Michael will marry someone so wrong for him, and someone he has known for such a short period of time. She realizes that she is in love with Michael, and heads to Chicago, intent on sabotaging his wedding. Soon after arriving she meets Kimmy, who asks her to be the maid of honor. This sets off a comical scenario in which Julianne must pretend to be the dutiful maid of honor while secretly scheming ways to prevent the wedding from happening. She engages in petty sabotage—for example, taking Kimmy and Michael to a karaoke bar after discovering that Kimmy is a terrible singer—and later asks her gay friend George Downes to pretend they are engaged, hoping to make Michael jealous.

Short Review:

Oh my god! I just love old films! This romcom film is hilarious I couldn't stop giggling from start to end. And all those things that happened to Julianne, I was kind of like "you deserve it" but then I kind of feel bad for her in the end, but I was really satisfied, wait, no, not really. I mean, why do George have to be gay?

I truly adore George, I was hoping that he'll turn around say, "Hey Jules, guess what? I also like girls" Gah! >< But I'm not the director. (Sigh) Anyway, I don't really know what to write without spoiling the story so I recommend that you go watch this film, if you like best friends romance stories.

Totally (not) going as planned

Life sure love putting us in unpredictable situation. Before November start, I was determined to write the Pillars of Life. But because of other stories bothering me, I tucked my tail between my legs after that big declaration and decided to write another story after fixing my biggest problem. (See this post) Now that my first issue is solved, a sudden inspiration hit me. I'm going to write Pillars of Life after all! Never mind if I'm 8 days late! I'm totally going to do my original plan. *nod to myself* I'll try and win this thing and brag about it if I ever manage. Hahaha! :D Oh, but, if I didn't, please don't throw rotten eggs rotten at me, okay? Some ice cream for consolation would be much appreciated. Hehe...

Not much progress

Oh man, my lucky charms are failing me! Last year I was at least able to keep up with the daily word counts for the fantasy story that I’ve chosen, but his month’s NaNoWriMo novel is proving to be more difficult than I expected. I feel trapped and disconnected to my characters, I keep staring at the PC screen with the words stuck in my chest! I’m moving at turtle speed!

**sigh** I’ll still be writing this sci-fi story, but I think I’ll be changing the story to write. I already have a story in mind, but it’s more of a Sci-fi romance, but before that I feel like I should prioritize revising the Filipino novel that my editor, if possible, want to be done before January. I have a feeling that it’s due to this that I can’t seem to concentrate on writing other stories. Who knows, after revising this Filipino novel I might able to dash into the finish line of my first Nanowrimo choice for this year.

I’ll still aim to win, Nanowrimo though.

Yosh! Now that I’ve declared that, time to put it into action. And as the characters in K-drama use to say: FIGHTING!!
