you're a Scottish Terrier!

No bones about it, you're an adventurous Scottish Terrier. Fearless, feisty, and always up for a challenge, you like having things your way. Some people might even label you stubborn or headstrong. But we know you're just ambitious and motivated. (Being misinterpreted is such a trial, isn't it?) Besides, your can-do attitude serves you well when facing challenges at work or in your personal life. No job is too big, and absolutely no obstacle is going to stand in your way. You're always ready, willing, and able to rise to the challenge. A loyal, caring friend, you choose your pals very carefully, then stick by them through thick and thin. Woof!

A line jumps out from a letter and goes down on to the table. The line crosses the room, goes up the wall and it enters into a picture on the wall. It descends from the roof to the road. It goes past a lot of people. It goes across the road. It gets on a bus and travels to the docks. There, the line goes up the rope. It goes into the ship and goes along the corridor. It enters into a room where a man is crying and drinking. It goes to the palm of his hand. Then, he catches a gun.

Going to the cinema? Million dollar baby

Starring Hillary Swank and director Clint Eastwood, Drama and Romance 2 hrs. 17 min.

In the wake of a painful estrangement from his daughter, boxing trainer Frankie Dunn has been unwilling to let himself get close to anyone for a very long time--then Maggie Fitzgerald walks into his gym. In a life of constant struggle, Maggie's gotten herself this far on raw talent, unshakable focus and a tremendous force of will. But more than anything, she wants someone to believe in her. The last thing Frankie needs is that kind of responsibility-- let alone that kind of risk--but won over by Maggie's sheer determination, he begrudgingly agrees to take her on. In turns exasperating and inspiring each other, the two come to discover that they share a common spirit that transcends the pain and loss of their pasts, and they find in each other a sense of family they lost long ago. Yet, they both face a battle that will demand more heart and courage than any they've ever known.

It´s a must-see
