Once I was (not) Julius Caesar.

Today is Mia Monday over at Terra del Sole, so here you are, an embarrassing moment of my life:

I was 11, I attended junior high, and was a very shy and introverted girl, so I can not understand how they decided that I had to play a role in a recital.

May be it was just for that, to help me overcoming my fears, or it was the fact that I had a boy cut, the teachers decided that I had to be Julius Caesar.

Luckily I had only to say five words "Quoque tu Brute, filii mihi", and fall down on the floor, murdered.

So I had to wear this white bed sheet, like a toga, and a laurel wreath, but when my moment came, I could not remember a single word, and, on top of this, someone in the public said "Look, Julius Caesar wears a watch!"

(Hey! Nobody's told me that I wasn't supposed to wear a watch).

Oh my! What's worse than that?

( I know, I know, there are many things worse than that, but not for me in THAT moment ).

At last, some pious soul (my teacher) suggested me, and finally I said my part.

Definitely acting is not my thing.

And fortunately embarrassing moments pass.

In effect I've had worse moments than that, but by any means I will tell you, promise! ;)

My new finds are over, now what, again.

As I told you here, I was looking for some nice Tv show to watch.
I found some things that I liked,
here you are, in chronological order:

I started to see it because it featured Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls)
and it hooked me.
It's the story of a family, with it's problems, relationships among siblings, parents and sons, with its complexities.
My vote 7.5.

A 16-year-old orphan girl, asking for emancipation, find her natural parents and....
.......I cried, and cried, and cried again.
Very well done, very moving, nice characters, loved it.
My vote 8.5.

Set in Botswana, the story of a lady whose father dies, leaving her enough money to open a detective agency.
Unlike the usual "nowadays" crime series, it has a slow rhythm, beautiful images of Africa (the cinematography is great), hens in the yard, and an improvised investigation, however full of heart and intuition.
The characters are very pleasant and I loved their interpretation.
Oh, and remember to watch the movie first.
My vote 8.5.
I recommend them all, if you like sentiments.

Did you like it?

The Lost finale I mean.
I did, I loved it.
I didn't appreciate the last season very much, but with the finale, it is like we came back to the old Lost.
And I liked the metaphor, as life is, Lost has been an amazing adventure, full of mysteries, that probably don't have any logic explanation, but it's definitively worth living.
And Love, in it's widest meaning, is the only important thing.
Or was it the Purgatory, I'm not sure, hmmm?!? :D
