Maybe the Dextrose will make me feel better

So much for a four-day weekend. It's been cramped into just one day. Sunday is my only free day and it's not like that's going to be free cause I have to study for Physics the next day. This is just great. To think it's only August and I feel as if I've done so much more than all of my years in school put together. This is just pure torture.

I try to keep a positive attitude about things, but I just can't do this anymore. I got home yesterday and my little sister was lying down on her trundle bed with a dextrose stuck up her arm! She's only eight years old for crying out loud and she's already had a needle poked into her skin! I've never had that! She's underweight and has been sick for two weeks! She refused to be absent from school too! What a weirdo. I guess I feel sorry for her, but it's just weird because she's supposed to be young and healthy. Now, my mom seems like she's going to get sick too because she's the one staying up to take care of Paola.

After watching the THE film on child birth and after seeing my mom going through all this crap, my heart is even more decided on not wanting to get married and having kids! Of course there are upsides to it, but the downside is the one weighing inside my head. Am I really capable of loving someone that much that I am willing to sacrifice so much for that person? Right now, I don't think so.

So here I am, wondering how the crap I'm going to go home tomorrow after doing all the school stuff I have to do on my supposed FREE day. Sometimes, the ironies of life really get to me.

Late-Blooming Businessman

Linus Larrabee

Harrison Ford
so sexy/sweet you'll want to:
learn French so that you can tell him, "I want you" in the language of love
I first watched this film when I was a little kid. And like always, I didn't get a thing they were saying. Yet still, I knew that Linus was one hunk! Sure, Harrison Ford is a tad old mature, but older guys can actually be sexy too! And Linus is a living example.

Throughout the entire film, he's just so serious and has this cool, calm demeanor that makes me want to be the one who can fluster him. He even made a bow tie look really good. It helps a lot that when he would talk to Sabrina, he had this authoritative tone. It was like he was still the boss, which he actually is.

When he spoke to Sabrina's dad, who also happens to be Linus' driver, it was so cute:

Linus Larrabee: Go ahead, say it.
Fairchild: You don't deserve her.
Linus Larrabee: I don't, I know that; but I need her, and I don't need anything.

He doesn't need anything! But he needs her! I want to cry!

And the sweetest parts of all were when he'd loosen up and just let his hair down. When he danced with Sabrina in the solarium because David couldn't make it (thank God!), I almost died. With his hand at the small of her back, as he pulled her in so close that she could smell his neck, I wanted to yank Sabrina out and take her place.

And of course, there was the part where he flew her to Nantucket so that she could 'take pictures' of a house they were going to sell off, but in reality, he just wanted to spend time with her. I thought that was just the sweetest thing ever! They even had a picnic in the sand.

But the best part was after their date and he told her that he wanted to know how to say, "I'm just looking" in French. Then he asked her how it was to say "This is what I want." All this time, Sabrina just thought he was asking her all this because she knew some French. All his questions had the word want in them. Finally, the breaking point was when he paused, and looked at her with that really sexy gaze and asked her, "How do you say I'm looking at what I want." AAAACK!!!! Pamy and I are shrieking! We're watching it at this very moment.

My heart is really beating quickly! There was this really quick scene where they're just in the car going home and the tension is so freaking thick between them, you could cut through it with a knife! I would kill just to be in the backseat of that car. Heck! Even the trunk!

With the killer soundtrack, hearing so many different versions of Moonlight by Sting, I totally recommend this film. Especially with über sexy/sweet Linus, this is a win-win situation for anyone, perfect for all those still waiting for their prince -- or media magnate -- to come.

And to close this, I will leave you all with this utterly breathtaking line from Linus. Only he could pull it off.

Linus Larrabee: I've been following in footsteps all my life. Save me, Sabrina fair, you're the only one who can.

Oh Linus, Sabrina ain't the only superhero around here. I can save you too!

Devoted Best Friend

Kyun Woo

Tae-hyun Cha
so sexy/sweet you'll want to:
feign falling into the MRT so he can save you and take you to a cheap motel
Pamy introduced this to me because her friend, Jason (My Sassy Boy) was the unofficial publicist of this Korean film. At first I was doubtful, but in the end, it was all worth it.

Kyun Woo is the sweetest guy ever! The girl in the movie (she has no name) was mean to him half the time, but his devotion to her was just impeccable. He would go through so much torture, like walking in women's high heels just so she could take a break from them and walk in his sneakers.

From the moment they 'met' as he saved her from falling into the subway's rail, he was already so nice to her. He even took her to a motel (nothing happened!) because he didn't want to leave her drunk on the road. He's got no malice at all. I'm not sure, but I don't even recall a kissing scene in the movie. He was such a gentleman. That's why when they held hands, I already felt like fainting.

On her birthday, he even came to her school, which happens to be an all-girls college, and while she played Pachabel's Canon in D, he walked up to her and gave her a rose because that was what her other boyfriend (who died) did for her. He may not be that sexy, but he is probably the highest when it comes to the sweet factor. He probably beats everyone on this list, hands down.

When The Girl (she doesn't have a name) was banned from seeing him by her parents, she had to go on this date. During the date though, she couldn't take it anymore, so she asked Kyun Woo to go with her. The dutiful boy went even if he knew how awkward it would be. While the girl was in the bathroom, he gave her date a list of things he was expected to do when he was with her. I was crying half the time because it hurt that they had to be separated.

Kyun Woo: Follow ten rules:
  • First, don't ask her to be feminine.
  • Second, don't let her drink over three glasses, she'll beat someone.
  • At a cafe, drink coffee instead of coke or juice.
  • If she hits you, act like it hurts; if it hurts, act like it doesn't.
  • On your 100th day together, give her a rose during her class. She'll like it a lot.
  • Make sure you learn fencing and squash.
  • Also, be prepared to go to prison sometimes.
  • If she says she'll kill you, don't take it lightly, you'll feel better.
  • If her feet hurts, exchange shoes with her.
  • Finally, she likes to write. Encourage her.

If you watch the movie, which you should, you'd appreciate the dialogue even more. In the ending though, when they finally reunite through a common link, my heart was beating so wildly because you could see the shock on their faces as they were being introduced to each other. Kyun Woo's aunt looked as surprised as the both of them.

Auntie: Go out with him. I thought he'd make things easy for you. Oh yeah, Kyun Woo, you're going to Europe right? She's already been there. She can give you some tips
Kyun-Woo: I don't have to go now
Auntie: Why? You two know each other?
The Girl: You may not believe it, but i think I met a man from the future. Your future

I'm a little sassy, and I'm definitely a girl, can you come to school on my birthday and give me flowers too, Kyun Woo? (My Bakal Boy)
