in my other life...

i used to take smoke breaks with a co-worker. Somedays when i didn't want a full cigarette, i would steal a puff of his red malboros. I made him watch "Lost in Translation" because it is my favorite movie. He told me a scene from the karaoke night was us. The taking of a cigarette ... with a person you were never going to be with but experienced shared moments like these.

i love these moments.

vanessa, i miss you too!!!

missy, you know me ;)

rachel, i suggest it.

Beach Bunny, how could it get any better? i agree... my favorite scene from that movie is where they stay up talking in the hotel room, laying on the bed. Where he touches her foot...

M, such a great line. So i must ask you... what do you think he tells her at the end? & "Closer"-- such intense dialogue. Clive Owen is so yum! and next to Jude Law? incredible cast. Intense.

“I have to be leaving…but I wont let that come between us, okay?”

i think this has been the consenses and i like it... because it kind of leaves the audience wondering what he meant.

Did that mean he was coming back to her? Or was he just leaving her with hope. That in having this hope, she wouldn’t be completely miserable and lonely.

M, that's exactly what I think. I love the idea of hope just to get you through the day.

I think he said your favorite line from the movie again, "Let's never come here again because it will never be as much fun" and, "you'll be okay. I know you will. And... i love you."
