Well, not so much a dream, more like a rampant daydream.
Picture the scene. The light is fading, beautiful feathers of snow are floating down outside the window and I am cocooned within my handsome duvet. What should a girl do?
Watch naught but the finest films that the world has offered us, of course.
Which films would you chose? Which film warms your cockles?
For me it was The Bodyguard. Oh to be a pre crack Whitney. Yet I was malcontent. Suddenly Whitney was not enough. My voice disappointed me in the cold empty room. (Who doesn't sing along?) My swooning over a much younger Mr Costner was certainly not enough.
Hmm, what else could I watch? Why yes, of course, the wondrous - Little Shop of Horrors! It has been years since I last listened to the fabulous words and been frightened by the fearsome Audrey II.
The more I listened the more I fell in love. It is but a story about the struggles one must endure to find true love. The WIC is portrayed beautifully by Audrey II. The quasi evilness which sucks blood from the life force that is wedding happiness but is ultimately? slain. The dentist is the past we are all leaving behind. Yes, we may have suffered by its hand but we are stronger because of our struggles. For me Skid Row is the perfect metaphor for my ill health and the discovery that I need to take my problems seriously. Although I fear I over labouring this metaphor.
I shall finish with my epiphany. It made me realise I yearn for an all singing and all dancing wedding and life. My girls shall be not maids but backing singers (without any requirement to sing unless they wish.) I shall relish the disparity of scale (from tiny flowers to huge canapés) which our wedding shall bring and delight in slight campness which both Bean and I possess.
I simply cannot wait to dance and sing my way through one of the top 50 weekends of my life and Bean will support me and I, him. The film shall be a beautiful allegory for the wedding, I think.
Hope you are all your beautiful Brits (and almost Brits) are "enjoying" the snow!
