Ive had a right niggly niggle in my head/chest/heart for a couple of months now.
You know the feeling, it kind of feels like you are being choked and you are gasping for air.
You need to do something but you don't know what it is that will help clear out the cobwebs.
You stand there for weeks scratching your head and pulling the most ugliest of faces because you just want to sort it out. Its most bizarre really but its true.
I can't deny I feel totally and utterly like crappy crappersville from the planet crapston.
Now the blog camera pans to tonight and cue a DVD night again at our house.
Its 11.30 and the kids are wide awake.
Said kids have been scanning the DVD shelf all evening whilst planning cinema nights over the next few weeks.
We wrote down what we are going to watch and on the list we have weepies such as Beaches and Steel Magnolias to comedies like the Wedding Singer and Uncle Buck and then musicals from Sound of Music to Calamity Jane and Grease. The feel good movies are listed as The Holiday, Love Actually and While You Were Sleeping.
You could say we have a fairly vast library of classic movies but you can scrub Marks precious "The Great Escape" (Jeez, that movie maybe based on a true story but it goes on and on and on and on. Too much dirt filled trousers for my liking although, to be fair, Steve Mcqueen was a bit of a yum in his day and his sweaty look whilst slinging that ball in the slammer makes my knees knock a little).
The blog camera now pans back to the event of "the girls can't sleep". Well, it is the school holidays and it maybe very late at night but sod it - we are watching a DVD come hell or high water.
And we plump for The Holiday because its just brilliantly endearing, charming, heart warming and consists of a good measure of Jude Law and Jude Laws hairy chest - not forgetting Jude Law in glasses.
Jack Black follows at the rear in hot pursuit and he deffo has something about him too. If you watch him closely and follow his eyes, I have to exclaim that his overly cheeky persona wins my little heart.
The blog camera then pans onto Kirsty who is not only majorly enjoying the film but is also feeling a wave of happy feelings thinking that life can be that good and joyous. Hollywood sure knows how to put a great feel good movie together albeit a little over flourished with "yeah, yeah's" but as soon as the credits rolled I felt inclined to come in my room, finish off a few bits, sort out some mail with a slightly euphoric skip in my step. I'm not professing its cured my little woe however it does cast aside the mysterious aching feeling we all get now and again.
What movie gives you that feel good factor?
