french fries
Or is it chips? Hmm. A vague misconception due to the saturation of American culture or are they really called french fries? One of the many un-needed and unwanted questions to be answered in life.

I feel cultured. Well, partly cultured, I suppose. You can't exactly just sit through one French language film and come out totally and wholly cultured now, can you? But at least I can say that I've been to a French Film Festival thing once now. And I might just be going for another or two more films the next Friday too if I can wager them into my "tight" schedule.

Arrived at Mid Valley and met up with Lane, "the cousin", and Kuan Eng, a friend of hers who owns a really cool car. And I do mean really seriously cool car. Proceeded to procure the tickets and then had a leisurely long lunch at "Chili's". The Quesidilla (or something like that) Explosion salad is really good. Talking over bottomless fruit juices and coffee about almost everything under the sun once a week is good for the soul. (Hence the aforementioned 'french fries' thing above.) I should make it a point to do that more often now to relax from my god-awful college week. If only my purse can hold up to those occasions, I've got it made.

Anyway, after that it was time for the movie. We watched 'Nickel and Dime' or 'A la petite semaine'. I have to be frank and say that it really wasn't what I expected after reading the summary for the movie beforehand because I went into it expecting some French godfather slash mobster like movie. But it turned out to be a quite warm and gentle type of movie. Not the guns and blood movie I was expecting though I'm generally a very non-violent movie advocate. Plot-wise, it wasn't that engaging and uncomplicated but I liked it for some reason. There were a few funny moments that were really non-jokingly or slapstick funny but geniunely witty. And the main characters were really good too, especially Jacques and Francis. Overall, a 7 out of 10.

Back to the grime tomorrow. Yuck, I feel so lifeless now. Tutorial questions to be completed and assignments to get started on. Hopefully, I can make it through the week unscathed to enjoy more French films at the end of the week and maybe a little shopping time for birthday presents too even though I'm fairly broke now.
