Letters to JZ – Part 13: My Week So Far…..

Hey gorgeous,

I have a few options for you to consider for Friday.

We can watch Blue Jasmine (I’ll watch it again with you, if you’re interested) or Game of Thrones, The Millers or World’s End are also good choices if you want to see those.

For food we can go to Fresh or get some healthy takeout from Whole Foods or I can cook for you.

I’m aware that TIFF starts tomorrow, so I expect that things will be quite busy and I know you hate crowds. I’m not too keen on the crowds either – I think I may have given you the impression that I like to be out and about all the time, but that’s actually not true. I’ve always been a homebody, I’m just trying new things since arriving in TO. Which means that I’m quite happy to curl up with you on the couch and watch an episode or two of Game of Thrones.

I also thought that perhaps we can get together for a workout at some point. It could be fun to do a yoga class together or something like that.

Let me know what you think 🙂

Speak soon,

RR.

xoxo

Hey sweetheart,

So, I’m in a writing mood today. Apparently a lack of sleep does that to me. Let me explain.

I was awake at 3am this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep. My mind was racing, jumping from topic to topic and it gave me very little opportunity to settle back down, so I got up at 7am and started writing. I normally do about 500 words per day (or try to), but I’m up to 2,000 today with a few short breaks to eat, go to the gym, get a haircut, etc. In any case, the lack of sleep has left me in a melancholy mood for most of the day and I have been listening to emo music like the below as a result:

Suspect that my sub-conscious is trying to tell me something, but I’m not sure what. I’m positive all will be revealed at some point.

Sunday I had a good long chat with Jack who is one of the gang, is studying to be a surgeon and also does some life coaching on the side. He very kindly agreed to do a session with me and while I’m telling him the story of how I came to be here he kept on saying, dude you can’t make this stuff up. I didn’t think it was that exciting but maybe it is a little out of the ordinary. Anyway, he gave me a few pointers which included taking a look at my social circle. According to Jack we are a reflection of the 5 people closest to us. Three of my five best friends are family, all are positive role models and that actually made me feel good because I do have some really awesome people in my life, including you J

I’ll tell you a bit more about it later if you are interested.

I also did my usual Sunday roast thingy at Hemingway’s, although this time there were no 60 year olds around to, uh, hit on me. Instead, I had the bartender interrogating me (hehe) for some of the evening. WTF. Anyway, according to her I have a bit of an edge. I don’t know if that is a good or bad thing, but I’ll take it and like it, lol.

Anyway, I was thinking about you, so thought I’d send you a wee email with some thoughts and musings. Hopefully this doesn’t come across as a rambling mess ;p

Hugs and kisses,

RR.

Hi handsome,

Sorry I didn’t reply promptly, I got your email. And every time I try to reply, there’s always some emergency at work. I hope you are doing well though 🙂

Sooo about Friday, I really want to watch the worlds end. It’s playing at Amc and the only showtime I can make it to is 4:10. If you dont mind, we can meet at the theatre at around 3:30?

I prefer not to watch blue jasmine since you watched it and you said it sucks. I am interested in watching game of thrones but you already watched the beginning. So maybe I’ll watch it on my own and catch up to you 🙂

For food, I always prefer the fresh restaurant but we will see if it’s too crowded because we might have to wait in a long lineup. We will figure out what to eat on Friday. It’s always nice going anywhere with you!

I don’t mind the crowd sometimes, just traveling is harder. But seeing you is worth it heheh

I hope we can do a workout together, but you wake up in wee hours. Which means you will have to adjust your workout schedule a little if you are still interested in working out with me lol I know you might be thinking this girl is soo annoying!!

Sooo in conclusion, movie, food then xxx (you know what I mean hehe). What do you think?

Xoxo,

J

It’s me again 🙂 like always I enjoy reading your emails very much.

You haven’t been having restful sleeps lately. I wonder why too, I hope it will get better as things unravel and you will finally know what’s keeping you restless. However, it seems like you had some sort of epiphany from talking to your friend, Jack. Conversations does help especially others can bring up points you might not have thought about. I am very interested in listening to you and I am very grateful to have met someone so cool 🙂

The bartender is totally hitting on you. Did you get her digits? If I was there, I’ll totally give her the death stare and make sure no female goes near you hahaha oops I just revealed the control freak in me 😛

By the way, I like the song you sent me.  It doesn’t sound so emo, you are good 🙂

I can’t wait to see your pretty face and dreamy eyes soon! Goodnight and I hope you are sleeping like a baby 🙂

Xoxo,

J

Hi honey 🙂

I hope you are doing well today and gotten a better sleep last night. I just checked the showtimes for the worlds end. The showtime is either 4:25 or 7:45. If you like, I can meet you at your place at around 3 pm, hang out, have food and then go for 7:45 show. Or we can watch the movie first and then hang out 🙂 its up to you. OR if you have other plans, we can do that too because I just enjoy your company very much 🙂 🙂

Hey sweetheart,

I think our emails crossed each other. Both options are good, but let’s do the 4:30pm show. I think this is at the AMC on the corner of Yonge and Dundas? You can meet me here or we can meet at the theatre, whichever strikes your fancy. If you come here first we can take a slow walk down to the theatre as it’s not too far away. If you come here early then I MIGHT let you see me naked before we go the movie, but only if you behave yourself ;p

Lol – I’m being a glutton. I really enjoy your company as well and the time we spend together passes by so quickly that even an extra minute more spent with you is a treasure.

On that note, no need to apologise for replying to me late at night. I know you are really busy, much more than me, however the sentiment is appreciated.

Re: Game of Thrones. It is really, really good, so I’m keen to see Season One again. Just throwing it out there for potential future activities and I also don’t want you to feel guilty about me seeing it again.

And, I would never classify you as annoying, especially given you travel 2+ hours every Friday just to spend time with me. I really do appreciate it 🙂 So, for the workout, I’m happy to adjust my workout schedule to accommodate you.

I think tomorrow is going to be a little cool, but if it is warm enough I will wear a t-shirt. I think you mentioned that you like seeing me in one.

I’m going to the gym now, so will respond to your other email a little later.

RR.

Hey sweetie,

Thanks for the compliment, I appreciate it J.

I slept just about okay last night, however apologies in advance if I look a little tired when we get together tomorrow. I should be okay, though.

No, I didn’t get her number. I just wasn’t interested. And, I’m kinda wondering if your control freak comment has a little bit of truth to it ;p

The song is from a Tom Cruise movie which came out in April of this year and was very, very good. If you get a chance to see it, I highly recommend it.

And for kicks and giggles, here is my review of Blue Jasmine which I just submitted to Cinema Clock:

“Let me preface this review by saying I’m not a huge fan of Woody Allen’s movies, and after seeing this movie I’m even less of one. I’ll admit that I infrequently visit the world of film, preferring to be entertained by movies, so likely don’t have a refined enough palette to fully appreciate this piece of art. For example, my uncle was a connoisseur of fine cheeses, the more pungent and aged the better. Being young and curious I asked to try a small piece of cheese, not realizing that my underdeveloped taste buds were more attuned to sugary delights than refined cheeses. That taste of old, sweaty gym socks remains with me to this day. So, forgive me if I highlight aspects of this film which are signature Allen hallmarks as unpalatable. The protagonist is completely unlikeable and therefore I didn’t connect nor care what happened to her. This, to me, made the story completely pointless. At times, I found the movie almost unwatchable because the main character’s behavior was so distasteful. Self-Inflicted Wounds would have been a better title than Blue Jasmine. The supporting characters weren’t much better. All deeply flawed, with these flaws being on full display as the main descriptor of each character. Real people aren’t like this. It wasn’t even a close enough facsimile of a real person for me to suspend my disbelief long enough to enjoy the story being told. I also found it curious that all of the male and female characters were essentially created from the same mold. The female characters being these one person wrecking crews affecting the lives of all the people around them, and the male characters being victims, weak, powerless and spineless in the face of these whirling dervishes. All this despite the socio-economic status of the individual. Perhaps Allen did this on purpose. Perhaps this is a reflection of the world in which Allen lives. In any case, watching a film which is inspired by a classic and is infused with Allen’s peculiar view of the world is just not that entertaining to me. That being said, Cate Blanchett’s performance is outstanding and for that alone the film is worth viewing. I’d be surprised if Cate was not included in the list of nominees for an Oscar next year.”

I’m looking forward to seeing you tomorrow, beautiful 🙂

RR.

Hi honey,

I can meet you at around 3:15 at your place, then we will take a walk down to the theatre. I don’t think theres enough time to strip you but we can always do it after hehe

We can always watch game of thrones at your place if there’s no good movies to watch in the theatres. I am almost done all the breaking bad episodes so I do want to start a new show 🙂

I know we will have a nice day tomorrow. Today is pretty cold. It will be nicer tomorrow but it might be a bit chilly for t shirt, you do hot hot in t shirts  though,  even hotter when you are naked hehe

I hope you had fun at the gym. I can’t wait to see my pookie bear soon 🙂

P.s. I don’t mind the travel at all because I get to see your sexy face and body hehehe

Xoxo,

J
