boombox, Sarah McLachlan and overtures

Meghan: This is how I know Felicity still likes you. You ready? 
Ben: Yeah. Wha… what is it? 
Meghan: Sarah McLachlan. 
Ben: What? 
Meghan: When Felicity showed up last year, head over heels for you, Sarah McLachlan was all she listened to. If “Fumbling Towards Ecstasy” wasn’t in the CD player, it was only so “Solace” could get a little airplay. I started calling it ‘Ben music’… not to her face but behind her back. But then it went away, and I thought Sarah was gone for good. I almost started celebrating. And then you showed up again. You offered Felicity this cross-country trip of a lifetime, which means I got to memorize every lyric from “Surfacing”… all 10 songs! This year started off McLachlan-heavy, until the big break-up, and then all of Felicity’s hair went away, and so did Sarah. Until you guys broke into the pool. Now maybe it was a coincidence, but guess who started to make a comeback? It was gradual, but constant, and now if you want me to, I can sing any song from “Mirrorball” which really annoys the hell out of me! So if you’re ever curious about whether Felicity has the hots for you, just check her boom box. 
Ben: That’s the dumbest theory I’ve ever heard. 
Sean: Well, I buy it. 
Meghan: Let me put it this way, Greg knows how to work it. If she spends too much time with him, Sarah’s going back on the shelf. 

Ben: I've made a lot of mistakes. But the biggest mistake I ever made was letting you go. What I should have done is realize that being with you made me the luckiest guy on the planet. What I should have done is treat you with respect. I should have done a lot of things I didn't do and I didn't do them because I was afraid. I was scared.
Ben: You and I should be TOGETHER. And the reason I'm saying this now… the reason I'm not waiting… is because I don't want to risk losing you again. I mean, the only difference now… is this time you're the one who's afraid.
Felicity: I'm afraid?
Ben: Yeah, because you don't trust me anymore. Felicity, I will do whatever it takes because the only thing I'm afraid of now is that you're not willing to take the chance too.
Felicity: Ben, you can't do this.
Ben: I can't do what?
Felicity: Just show up and make these little speeches. I mean, that's not how it works, ok? You did the EXACT same thing last year.
Ben: No, that's not what I did last year. It's not the same thing at all.
Felicity: This is exactly the same thing. I was leaving to go with Noel and you just show up and you make these overtures. I mean, this is how you operate.
Ben: It's not how I operate. It's how I feel about you.
Felicity: No, it's this thing you do. It's this pattern, you know? It's not about me, it's about the chase!
Ben: That's not true. It's not.
Felicity: It is true. That's all this is.

Then Greg hits Ben. Felicity goes to Ben but leaves with Greg.

fe-lic-i-ty noun

a. the quality or state of being happy; especially : great happiness
b. an instance of happiness
c. something that causes happiness

It's funny that re-watching one of my favorite TV shows will actually get the push to write here again. I love this TV show. Back in college when this show was being shown in channel 9 (yes, RPN 9) I record every single episode in VHS. I remember buying blank tapes in Video City to record them every Thursday and religiously watching and recording it.

And for the longest time I have the biggest, hugest crush on Ben Covington aka Scott Speedman. What he and Felicity had is so amazing. And not to mention he's really nice to look at and he's very sweet. OMG.

So after watching the marathon of True Blood (and that credits a whole different post), I've decided to watch Felicity again and fall in love with Ben Covington again and again. Thanks to Amazon and Amazon Prime membership, I get to watch the free streaming of Felicity as much and as often as I want to. I'm currently being consumed by this TV series again. I watch it every free time that I have. Which is probably not that good.

And I can't get over the opening credits of the show. I just realized how much I loved them before and how much I still love it now. The photos are phenomenal. I feel that it captures the very essence of the show.

So I painstakingly posted all the pictures on the opening credits here and if I can only figure out how to put the opening song as well. I'm a happy camper. I'm currently on Season 2 where Ben follows Felicity and Greg on a cabin to let her know how he feels about her. To say that I'm swooning is an understatement. I can't wait for Felicity and Ben to be together but I guess the best part is getting in that stage.

Ben: I wanted to do that for a long time. 
Felicity just gets up and starts to head for the door. Ben stands up. 
Ben: Uh, where are you going? 
Felicity: Uh, I don’t know. It’s a flight reflex.

Um, that was Felicity and Ben's first kiss. And I wanna smack Felicity for leaving. LOL. Oh and I have a feeling that this will not be my last Felicity and Ben post.

happy new year!

To say that this year started as a busy one would be an understatement. I'm writing my first entry for the year, 25 days after the new year! I hope everyone had a safe and fabulous time welcoming the new year.

So what's been keeping me busy lately? I went back to school. Yep. School! Most of my free time had been devoted to reading and keeping up with the lessons for school. I just want to have options regarding my career. I've been working as an IT professional for almost 6 years now and sadly I feel like this isn't something that I'm seeing myself doing for another 5-10 years. So I'm going back to school to see other options available for me.

On another note, winter is biting our asses right now. After a whole December of no snow, it came with so much angst. We've had snowstorm two weeks in a row. Roads are an absolutely nightmare and the drive home takes almost 3 hours. I can't wait for winter to be over.

Oh, and yeah there are major changes happening in the next few weeks. I don't want to say anything because not everything is set in stone yet, but we're getting there! I'll share when everything worked out.
