Name: La Nina
I'm a Jersey girl without the big hair or the accent (well, most of the time anyway), but with all of the bad driving and the penchant for weekly manicures.
Oh, and I'm an interior design student. That's how all of the weird terminology comes into play.
An Exploration of My Inner Annie Hall
Annie Hall is a bad driver.
Mmmmm.... *looks at the "About Me" description* Check. New Jersey has never called me on it though.
Annie Hall says "la di da."
I have been known to say "la di da" (before I ever saw the movie) in addition to "goodness," "dang it," "fancy that," and "fiddle dee dee." Okay, I lied about that last one. Nobody says "fiddle dee dee."
Annie Hall is a performer.
I've acted since I was four years old, and I had a go at singing too, but only in school musicals and karaoke (Okay, one karaoke experience in a bar in the Port Authority doing a somewhat decent version of "Gloria" until my voice cracked like Peter Brady). Our singing voices sound similar as well, though I don't think that either of us is at a professional level by any means.
I'm not altogether sure what I meant to glean from this entry. I was really surprised when I first watched the film a couple of months ago and saw a lot of similarities. It was first released in 1977, when I was three years old, and had quite an impact on the culture at the time. Perhaps the movie had a secondhand influence on my development? That's certainly a little out in left field, even for such Freudian/existentialism enthusiasts as the characters in the film.
Regardless, I did have fun writing this. Reminds me of a Woody Allen quote from the movie. "That was the most fun I've ever had without laughing."
