I started this blog as I entered my 40th year, and now firmly in my 40s, I continue to learn so much about life. I'm learning that life rarely goes according to plan and that there's something new to learn every single day, be it a subtle nudge or a smack in the face.... This is my blog about muddling through my 40s-working hard, writing a book, being an ammateur photographer, trying to exercise and eat well, endeavouring to be the world's best aunt, as well as having fun and laughing out loud every single day.

P Dear Rocky - Pulp Fiction

Dear Rocky,

From the outset I'm telling you that Pulp Fiction is my ALL TIME classic movie choice and I'm telling you, it gets a 10/10.  I HEART Tarantino!

No review required.

Okay, okay, a little review.

My FAVOURITE relationship in this film is the one between Bruce Willis' character, Butch, and his French girlfriend, Fabienne.

The following exchange is my favourite, because I have a pot belly!

Fabienne: I was looking at myself in the mirror.
Butch: Uh-huh?
Fabienne: I wish I had a pot.
Butch: You were lookin' in the mirror and you wish you had some pot?
Fabienne: A pot. A pot belly. Pot bellies are sexy.
Butch: Well you should be happy, 'cause you do.
Fabienne: Shut up, Fatso! I don't have a pot! I have a bit of a tummy, like Madonna when she did "Lucky Star," it's not the same thing.
Butch: I didn't realize there was a difference between a tummy and a pot belly.
Fabienne: The difference is huge.
Butch: You want me to have a pot?
Fabienne: No. Pot bellies make a man look either oafish, or like a gorilla. But on a woman, a pot belly is very sexy. The rest of you is normal. Normal face, normal legs, normal hips, normal ass, but with a big, perfectly round pot belly. If I had one, I'd wear a tee-shirt two sizes too small to accentuate it.
Butch: You think guys would find that attractive?
Fabienne: I don't give a damn what men find attractive. It's unfortunate what we find pleasing to the touch and pleasing to the eye is seldom the same.

Can't wait to read your review Rocky!

  1. I kinda remembered your FB post about Django Unchained, so I kinda remembered that you kinda like Quentin Tarantino! :-)

  2. I have a pot belly too. I've always believed it's what happens to women when there is a very small space between their hip bones and their rib cage. How did I miss this exchange in a movie I've seen more than once!?


I love to receive feedback, so please leave me a comment.
