i take my films seriously


❝ …The Casino was indeed a charming place for a quiet rendezvous. The low background music was perfect for a romantic dinner for two. We dawdled over the menu and finally ordered our supper, and then Fred asked me to dance. I made the happy discovery that as wonderful a dancer as Fred was on the stage, he was equally superb as a partner on the dance floor.

Part of the joy in dancing is conversation. Trouble is, some men can’t talk and dance at the same time. They lose their rhythm. Fred was a delightful conversationalist and we chatted away. He really knew how to lead a girl around the floor and used each rhythm to introduce different footwork. Mind you, there was nothing showy about Fred’s ballroom dancing, it was understated and elegant. You could put yourself in his hands and trust to his feet.

We returned to our table and found our food waiting. It was cold, but we didn’t care. We were having such a good time. We got up to dance again and moved toward the bandstand to compliment Eddy Duchin on the music.

Eddy was pleased and looked at us with a twinkle in his eye as he said,

”Fred, you and Ginger really look good together.”

Fred laughed and put us into a three-second whirl while Eddy smiled approvingly. Too soon, Duchin’s band began its goodnight tune, signaling that the evening was over. I felt as though I could have danced all night. Within ten minutes we were on our way home in his handsome Rolls-Royce town car.

Like an aperitif, Fred’s well-trained chauffeur drove us through the park, so we could talk a wee bit more before we said adieu.

Finally, the car stopped in front of my building. The chauffeur got out and walked around the car, waiting on the sidewalk near the trunk for a signal as to when to open the car door. He must have waited about five minutes!

Inside the car, Fred had me in his arms, and the kiss that we shared in that five minutes would never have passed the Hays Office code!

chuckangeline  asked:

Do you have any favorite chessy 80's action films?

I guess I was taking my cinema very seriously in the 80s and I avoided a great many classic cheesy action film until later in life. I avoided almost all Patrick Swayze movies.

I recently saw the roadhouse for the first time with the rifftrax included and I almost fell off my chair when he said ‘pain don’t hurt ma'am’

I didn’t tweet about it because I couldn’t imagine anything less interesting than me freaking out about a 30-year-old Patrick Swayze movie but I was freaking out about it the whole time :-)

YouTuber And Singer, Narry one shot

Hi.. so, I was just lying in my bed while thinking of Narry as usual, then I came up with an idea, what if I tried to make a one shot? I don’t really know how this will end or if someone will even read it or like it. But if it is people liking it, I maybe can make some more..

So, I should probably tell you what the one shot is about. Of course, it is Narry and with side Lilo because who don’t love them?

So, Niall is a famous YouTuber, like Tyler Oakley etc. His boyfriend (Harry) is in One Direction, as well the other three lads (Zayn, Liam, Louis) and one day when Niall decided it is a good idea to do a vlog with them all in it because they are spending time together. 

So yeah.. I hope you like it.


Niall’s POV

I usually don’t vlog the other lads because I feel like I am ruining their free time they have but Lou texted me asking if they could be with us today and he knew it was my vlog day so he said if I wanted to, I could get them in a video.

It really is a good idea, also everyone gets to see what it really is for me to be with them considering my fans are always wondering that.

“Babe” I whisper, my camera in my right hand and my left on Harry’s shoulder as I lightly shake him. The boys and Harry got home for about two weeks ago and they are having a brake for about four more weeks which I am very happy about because Harry will be spending much time with me
