that friggin' Susan Boyle moment!

it happens to me everytime. that advert for Susan Boyle's new album, when they showed THAT moment. her audition. dumpy old maid walkin on the stage. u can almost hear Simon thinking, "booo-ring..a bloody waste of my fine British ass, uh, time". and then dumpy lady opens her mouth, and a voice that could accompany angels somehow rings out. the look of amazement on Simon's face, and then a slow smile of appreciation. the look of utter enjoyment on Susan's face... gotcha! bet yer dont expect dat, d'ye, myte..

that always chokes me up!

and its worse when i'm pms-ing. bloody tears actually come in my eyes, and i have to find a quick excuse in case someone notices. some of the more worthy bloggers out dere wud prolly wax poetical about talent shining thru, blah3. i dont have the depth for that. so back to my favorite subject..me,me!

i'm a closet crybaby. anything can set me off, but only when i'm alone. i hate crying in front of people. and its not becos i'm dignified or whatever. its because im absolutely UGLY when i cry. dont know how Bollywood babes manage to look all soft and vulnerable.

a fren of mine is like that. she makes me forget that i'm a girl when she cries. i stand there helpless, getting really over-protective, and i want to beat the hell out of whoever made her cry. everytime she broke up with her boyfriend (which was at least twice a month), i'd take the 30-minute bus ride to her house and bring her chocolates and song suggestions. ugh, i feel so gay! anyway, i've grown accustomed to her break-ups, and besides, i've found out she's way braver than i am, so the over-protectiveness has abated a bit.

still, i wish i could look like that when i cry, would be an useful tool to gain a lil' unfair advantage...

and there's Boyle again, and here comes the weepies again...

Love that moment too, reminds me of something to do with "Against all odds!" And it wasn't just Simon, everyone in the audience were holding back their giggles and sneers, hoping to let go as soon as she opens her mouth. Susan just had to sing a line to prove them all wrong, bloody judges-of-books-by-their-covers! :P
The standing ovation at the end was the last tug at one's tear ducts, releasing the flow! *sniff!
