I loved Strictly Ballroom.  I enjoyed MR too, but hey not for everyone. Can I ask why you didn’t like it? The contemporary songs in a different time period?  The acting?  Watch the Tango scene on YouTube, it’s brilliant.  I like Baz but he’s very divisive in his direction and style.  Like Wes Anderson, you either like it or you hate it. 

 

When people tell me I’ll regret not having kids, I say that’s okay I know a really good place to cry. It’s my vacation home.

That take is kinda funny, as I was dragged to "My Best Friend's Wedding" for similar reasons, and I actually didn't mind the movie.

It was so long ago I honestly don't recall other than everything about it was weird and there was no plot or story.

It's not a musical thing either, just that particular one didn't grab me.

1) Hebrew.

 

* Slow on the draw... lol!!! I texted my father-in-law, asking if he could still read and understand Hebrew before answering the question. He just replied that he has forgotten much of what he once known. Though he can understand a commentary of Hebrew grammer like Qal, Niphal, Pail and ect....

Keep your stick on the ice...

I only have half of the translation down, the easy part. Meaning I can follow what the rabbi is saying without using the transliteration in the siddur, but I don’t know what any of it means without looking at the English. 

Edit: That was a really long way of saying “I can sound it out but I don’t know what it means.” 😆
