Always on my Mind

I always forget what I want to download when I go online. Then since I don't remember what I want to do, I tell myself to go offline when I'm online. Yet, when I'm not online, I'm always thinking of what I want to do when I do go online. Confused yet?

I am. I've been watching Ally Mcbeal -- reruns actually, as I used to watch every Tuesday on RPN -- and I've realized just how adorable James Marsden can be. The fact that he can sing really well on the show, doesn't hurt one bit either. He's sung Witchcraft by Frank Sinatra and Always on My Mind by Elvis Presley. We've had the mp3 of the Witchcraft since forever, and it's really nice to listen to.

But after re-watching the episode of Jenny's birthday, I was dead set on downloading his version of Always on My Mind. Here's the fun part. I couldn't find it anywhere. Not on LimeWire. Not online. Not even in fan sites of the show (ally mcbeal) or in james marsden sites. Nowhere.

I was about to go offline, giving up and settling with Elvis's version of the song, when I told myself to do one last search. I've tried all combinations of James Marsden's name. Still, I persist. I type james marsden for the last time. Just as I'm about to disconnect, I see it. It finally appears in the search.

Always on my Mind

Maybe I didn’t treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn’t love you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn’t hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I’m so happy that you’re mine
If I make you feel second best
Girl, I’m sorry I was blind

This show really has a lot of cool songs that get played. I also liked the episode where Robert Downey Jr. and Sting sing Every breath you take for Ally's birthday. That was easier to find and download so I didn't have such a hunt looking for it.

Tomorrow is a Monday, so there'll be Ally McBeal again. It stinks that Jenny and Glenn are back together, because I thought Ally looked better with Glenn. Still, as long as James Marsden is in the show, I'll be watching.

Alex and Emma

Since I haven't started cleaning my room, I've obviously been stuck in front of the television. I know I should get my butt off those bean bags, but I can't say no to temptation. There's a the popcorn and the rug and the afternoon sun.

I watched Alex and Emma on Star Movies this afternoon (so what's new?) and though I wasn't able to watch it from the start, it was a really cute movie. Of course, it helped a lot that Luke Wilson is such a hottie!

I'm no film critic. I'm not picky at all. In fact, as long as I feel good after watching the movie, it's a good film already. Of course, it becomes a great film, when it has pleasant looking characters that make you fantasize afterwards. So based on my very low standards, Alex and Emma was a fabulous movie.

I have to say, whoever the costume people were, they certainly did an amazing job. No, it wasn't because the parts where it was supposed to be a la period piece looked authentic, but because in every scene, Luke Wilson looked really good. And he wasn't even in the most stylish things. He was in every day, average person, who happens to look hot garb and he looked wow!

Notice the easy grin and the comfortable stance. He looks really good.</td></tr></table> The hands in the pocket thing is just too much for me. I think I'm going to faint. The clothes fit so well, it'd be a shame when I tear them off him (whoohoo!!!)

It also helps if the person involved was pretty good at acting and his voice. I don't know, but his accent of sorts, or the intonation of his voice is so beatiful. I watched him in Royal Tenenbaums and he looked really whoa there too. I didn't like the part where he slit his wrists though, but he looked really good there.

Still, I think Alex and Emma is the movie wherein he looks the best.

In other news, it's official. I think I've finally gotten over both of the TWO major crushes of my life (yes despite the many number of cute guys I see, only TWO undeserving chaps belong to Team A -- I categorize my crushes according to intensity and Team A has the most intense ones). That means, I'm crushless. It feels good not to have to pine for anyone "real" right now. It just feels good to not keep wishing someone liked you back.

Hollywood actors are still nice to look at though. I'm not going to turn my back on them.
