why? well, mind over matter, my friends. i’m relatively happy. i’m just less happy at work. so, to combat that, i decided to just openly state “today will be a good day” every morning. it should work. right?
anyway, this song popped into my head a few days ago. and i haven’t quite been able to shake it.
whenever i hear this, i hear my mom singing along in my head. and before you go “awwww” – let it be known that my mom did not know the words. she’d sing along to the random words she knew and then hum the rest. it would sound like this “tu vuo fa’ l’americano, la lalalalalalalalall laaaaaaaa, baseball, lalalalalalalalalalalllllllaa, rock and roll, laaaalllalalalla”
and also, well, as much as i adore my mom, her singing voice was very squeaky. so this is one of those memories that makes me crack up whenever it pops up. because, really, it’s hilarious.
and if you need something with more matt damon –
from the talented mr. ripley.
this movie made me fall for jude law (i later started to hate him and now i begrudgingly find him fun again – dammit sherlock, dammit.)
also, um, matt damon.
and this movie is kind of amazing. gwyneth before she got all goopy. cate blanchet before we all knew she’d be in indiana jones 3 one day. phillip seymour hoffman being exactly the same as he is now. and jude law wearing adorable hats and shorts. (also, i just searched imdb and discovered that jack “i sound just like steve coogan” davenport was in it. sadly, he will always be steve to me.)
