Okay, I will finish up telling you about what else I did as I was recovering from being sick. If you weren't aware I have been ill, you may want to read recent Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries.
You'll probably laugh when you read this, but I watched television. You're probably thinking to yourself... of course you did, Lynn! Well, it was one more thing I did.
In addition, I watched movies.
First, I watched some old movies. Classics. The oldies, that were and still are considered romantic for their era, are some of my favourites.
I enjoy movies with some old-time actors, like Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. These are people who not only had an onscreen love for each other, but also real-life love.
Yes, of course, watching movies of this sort can be sad, during parts of the movie. Yes, they make me feel sad at times, because I know that there is no love for me, in this world, anymore.
Still, I enjoy the passion that exudes onscreen. Passion that isn't necessarily exhibited by means of nudity and/or being so sexually implicit that it leaves nothing to the viewer's imagination.
Then, I also watched some newer movies. Maybe I should have said, less old movies. Some I had seen, previously and some I hadn't.
Hairspray, was one.
Never before had I watched that movie. I don't really know why; I just hadn't.
The version I watched was the one starring John Travolta. Here's a link to Wikipedia, where you can read about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hairspray_(2007_film)
As I began watching the movie, I wondered where John Travolta was. At first, I didn't see him. Not that he's one of my favourite actors, although I do think he's a good actor.
Still, I didn't see him at first, so I thought possibly he was going to have a late entry into the movie.
Not so! I laughed almost uncontrollably, when I realized the part he was playing. Be still my heart! No, I won't tell you about it, if you don't already know, because I wouldn't want to spoil it for you.
I will say this: if you don't laugh as hard as I did over some of the scenes, I'd be surprised.
Being a musical, one would naturally think the music would be good. Well, I thought it was wonderful!
Until next time...
