15 random things about 500 Days of Summer

In an attempt to forget (even for a short while) about the waters that are creeping slowly but surely into the city, I decided to watch a movie. This one has been on my radar for a while but for some reason got pushed somewhere far away until today and I’m glad I watched it now. It was good, it was romantic, it was lovely, it was the perfect escape. And I loved it.

    I haven’t seen this movie, but have been thinking about the title for a while – on how there can be 500 days in a summer. It is really cool that the girl’s name in the movie is Summer. Hope you enjoy reading ‘The Architecture of Happiness’. I will look forward to hearing your thoughts on it. My grandfather was a teacher and there was a blackboard in his home. It was really cool 🙂 Hope the situation in Bangkok is getting better now.

      The title is good and well, when you’re in love summer goes on for quite a while, doesn’t it… 🙂
      Ah, I knew I forgot something! I went to the bookstore today, bought a few books but totally forgot about “The Architecture of Happiness”. A good excuse to go back there again soon.

      Did you draw on that blackboard?

      Unfortunately the situation is getting worse, the water was on the outskirts but now is moving into the city and in a few days may reach the area I live in. There’s nothing to do but wait, hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

        Ha, ha, ha! Those bookstore visits are always wonderful, aren’t they 🙂

        I don’t remember drawing on the blackboard, but I definitely remember writing on it.

        Hope the floods don’t get into your area, Delia. It must be a really tough time. Hope things improve soon.
