hey hey! oh i’m having one of those lazy days where you don’t do much but that’s totally ok (right?) i seriously needed to chill it out – i just finished watching the most amazing movie called the diving bell and the butterfly (watch the trailer) which i had been meaning to watch for quite awhile now – it’s based on the book by former french elle magazine editor-in-chief jean-dominique bauby who at age 43 become paralyzed after having a massive stroke and was actually able to ‘write’ his book by blinking when the correct letter was reached by a ‘translator’ slowly repeating the alphabet over & over again (sadly mr. bauby died ten days after the publication of the book in 1997) it might sound a little on the depressing side but it was really uplifting – total triumph of the human spirit – plus the style of the award-winning film (directed by julian schnabel) was incredibly stunning and extremely well done – i can’t recommend it enough – i never have much time to read but after seeing the film i simply must read the book!
as for last night i caught up on desperate housewives by watching the two-hour season finale that had me on the edge of my seat – all the secrets concerning dana delany‘s character ‘katherine’ came spilling out – i think she has been a great addition to wisteria lane – i hope she sticks around for the 5th season! the last few minutes of the show were totally unexpected – a flash forward sequence five years into the future – checking up on each of the ladies (‘susan’ played by teri hatcher has a new man and it’s not ‘mike’…) except one character was oddly absent from the entire show – ‘edie’ played by nicolette sheridan – she better be back next season too! as for marcia cross who plays the ultimate perfectionist ‘bree’ was spotted yesterday leaving ken paves‘ salon sporting a completely new style which i’m not feeling at all – i much prefer her longer red straight locks – hopefully this look won’t be sticking around too long!
earlier today i was supposed to see indiana jones but the screening on the paramount lot was canceled so i’ll probably try and see it sometime this weekend – i need to see it now or i’ll miss it because next weekend is all about sex and the city! popbytes over & out for tonight…xxoo
PS i knew there was something fishy about ms. cross’ new hairdo – she was spotted earlier today out shopping w/ her hubby tom mahoney in brentwood – with her regular long red hair – way better – thank heavens her new style turned out to be just a wig – there’s plenty of pictures below displaying marcia’s hair back to how we like it!
