I’m sure that if I say Amelie Poulain, you’ll all know who I’m talking about. I love her so much and can’t get enough of her! I can watch this movie time after time and enjoy it as if I’d never seen it before. I’ve met lots of Amelie lovers as well as haters, but according to what I’ve seen in many blogs, most of you girls appear to love her just as much as I do :).
So, assuming you all know what the movie is about, I'll just move on to telling you what my weekly task consists of. Do you remember the part where Amelie breaks into Mr. Collignon's apartment in order to take revenge on him for being mean to Lucien? No? Well, then the following video will help you remember.
She did several things to tease Mr. Collignon such as switching his slippers to a smaller size, changing the numbers recorded in his telephone, filling his cognac bottle with some disgusting liquid. No, I didn't break into any of my neighbors' house; I only stuck to the surprise factor in the things she did. My point was to tease people too but in a milder way. I wanted people to find things only to discover they were not what they'd thought they were. Too complicated to explain! But the pictures will speak for themselves.
I took four matchboxes and some confetti. I kept the matches and filled the boxes with the confetti.
I also grabbed two blue pens and two black pens, and switched their refills. So the ones which were supposed to have blue ink had black ink, and the other way around.
But of course this was not only about teasing people; I also wanted to cheer some other strangers up. That's why I prepared a few doilies with some positive messages.
And now you can see where I've dropped everything.
Have you made it this far? Well, before I leave I'll refer to a very old post of mine where I introduced myself the way they introduce the characters in Amelie. This is the post and this is what I said:
Miki likes ...
* baby talking to pets and telling them secrets;
* eating gummy bears, especially red ones;
* imagining she stars the videos of the songs she listens to;
* believing one day she'll see her mother again.
How would you introduce yourself if you were a character in this movie?
Hope you all have a great weekend! :D
