"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void...
So good night, dear void."

i came across a new word today.
{that's one of my 2010 set of resolutions. be more savvy with my vocabulary. learn new words. 2010 resolutions are in the workings. to be posted at a later date.}

saccharine- adj.
1. Of, relating to, or characteristic of sugar or saccharin; sweet.
2. Having an enrapturing, sweet attitude, tone, or character.
3. In an overly sweet manner.

right after stumbling across "saccharine," i just knew i had to pop in You've Got Mail before i tucked myself into bed tonight. kathleen kelly is the epitome of saccharine. absolutely "enchanting." if you've never seen the movie, i do say it is a must. cuddle up on your comfiest couch with a blanket, pillow & cup of hot cocoa & your life will never be the same. you've got mail, for whatever reason only heaven knows, always makes me miss my mama. the scene where kathleen kelly is putting up the christmas tree in her Shop Around the Corner, then emailing to NYC 152...

"Unwrapping funky ornaments made of Popsicle sticks...
and missing my mother so much I almost couldn't breathe.
I always miss my mother at Christmas."

gets me every time. i sure do love my mama.
i think that's a better note than any to end on.
so...good night, dear void.
