Good is going to win…

My thoughts have been with London since Wednesday, after the horrible attack there. My brother works around the corner from where that attack happened. He was in Paris that day for business but his colleagues were all sent home early after the attack. What insantity makes a person do this? I can never fathom that someone becomes so deluded he starts murdering people at random. And I also wonder how people pitted against each other in hatred fuels this… the current right-wing, fear-mongering political climate is not helpful in that regard either, I feel…

It’s been a busy week for me. I started my new job a week and a half ago and while I am really enjoying it and am off to a good start, I am also exhausted. New duties, figuring out how things work, getting a hang of how stuff is organized, adjusting, learning new things, trying to remember new names and new faces and preferably matching them as well – it’s exhausting. A dear ex-coworker of mine has become my new co-worker once again and I am loving that too (even though I don’t see her that much, we each have our own thing to do). But I’m exhausted…

So, now the weekend has started and I find some heartwarming things to help me unwind. There is this shot from Brain on Fire

There’s something so endearing seeing a caring Richard Armitage in shorts like that. Nice legs too!

I also like Richard’s tweet responses to the London attack, tweeting pictures without words and the quote he posted…

Then this evening on the BBC there’s Comic Relief. To be honest, most of the show was lame, but it also had Red Nose Day Actually, which showed us where some of the characters of my beloved movie Love Actually are at now, 14 years later…

Colin Fiirth was in it too! Still married to his Portugese wife and still adorably baffled by the language he just can’t seem to be able to get a handle on… he remains so cute!

And then there was the highlight of a little speech Hugh Grant gives as PM to the press. It may have been a little corny but it was also touching and very topical too…

Hugh Grant Red Nose Day Actually

“I’m optimistic, wherever you see tragedy, you see bravery too, where you see ordinary people in need, you see extraordinary ordinary people come to their aid. Today is Red Nose Day and people are giving their hard earned cash to people who they’ll never meet but whose pain and fear they feel and want to fight. So it’s not just romantic love that is all around, most people still every day have enough love in their heart to help human beings in trouble. Good is going to win. I’m actually sure of it.”

So, I’m heading off to bed now, really hoping PM Hugh is right and that Good really is going to win in this world… I just wish for it sooner rather than later.

  1. aaand … the GOP health care bill was pulled from consideration because it did not have the votes to pass! (I’m not sure that was really a triumph of good, given how it happened, but at least it was not a triumph of bad.)

    Glad to hear that the new job is suiting you and keeping you busy.

    • I love that they do it! But the show they put on yesterday was the worst one I have seen… until Red Nose Day Actually came on and I also liked Graham Norton’s section for the most part… Some of those informative films they aired were heartbreaking and the real reason to donate money, so the bad show is forgiven.

  3. Oh der neue Job! Am Anfang ist das alles ein bisschen viel, ich weiss. Die vielen neuen Gesichter, Aufgaben – too much. Und zu Hause alles auf die Reihe bekommen wenn man nur noch die halbe zeit hat 🙂 eine riesen Herausforderung! Du schaffst das! Hauptsache sie sind alle nett zu Dir!
