Mayday! Mayday! (BEAT) I wonder why it's "Mayday"?
The distress call. Why d'you say "Mayday"? It's only a Bank Holiday. Why not "Shrove Tuesday" or "Ascension Sunday"? Ascension Sunday! Ascension Sunday! The fifteenth Wednesday after Pentecost! The fifteenth Wednesday after Pentecost!
It's French, you doink. It's m'aidez. Help me. Muh-aid-ay.
In an old house in Paris, all covered with vines, lived twelve little girls in two straight lines.
Things I never noticed till now: Madeline is brushing her teeth side to side.

Madeline was a bad bitch
Madeline didn’t choose the thug life. The thug life chose Madeline.

Madeline was my hero when I was a kid
From page to film → Catching Fire (Suzanne Collins)
“What happens next is not an accident. It is too well executed to be spontaneous, because it happens in complete unison. Every person in the crowd presses the three middle fingers of their left hand against their lips and extends them to me. It’s our sign from District 12, the last good-bye I gave Rue in the arena.”
“We would be safe inside the Justice Building by now, if I hadn’t stopped, if I hadn’t left my flowers. Instead, from the deep shade of the verandah, we see the whole thing. A pair of Peacekeepers dragging the old man who whistled to the top of the steps. Forcing him to his knees before the crowd. And putting a bullet through his head.”
- Catching Fire, page 61-62.
Some people who read these books, who see these films, I’m afraid they won’t understand the truth in scenes like these.

Pocahontas and Princess Riley from the Make a Wish Village.
On an ordinary rainy day just like any other in Walt Disney World Resort in 2011, Princess Riley stumbled into the empty Animation Building at Disney’s Hollywood Studios where she bumped into none other than Pocahontas and her best friend Meeko. Riley was a make a wish child. Her family explained her ongoing battles with cancer and stated that doctor’s didn’t know how much time she had left. For 30 minutes, Riley skipped around the building hand in hand with Pocahontas laughing and telling stories - she even played tagged with Meeko! A little girl with not much time left yet all the joy and happiness in the world. When it was time to go, Pocahontas and Riley hugged each other for a very long time. Riley looked up at Pocahontas and told her it was the best day ever to which Pocahontas replied “you’ll always be in my heart little one”. Riley left and the two never saw each other again.
As of February 6th, 2013, Riley has been in remission from her cancer.
Tears of joy
I’m not crying, I just have a hummingbird in my eye.
Sometimes the dream is more real.
