On Reuniting.

You know, it takes time. You can’t just have coffee and expect… There’s just so much to work through. Trust has to be built again on both sides. You have to learn if we’re even the same people we were, if you can fit in each other’s lives. It’s a long important process…
Can we just skip it? Can you just be kissing me now?

Repeat Viewing: Sweet Home Alabama

After Glory Road, my trip down Josh Lucas lane continued with a movie I have seen, oh, maybe three trillion four hundred fifty seven times (no I’m not kidding). So enjoyable. The small town vs. big town? The seven years without going home? So my life, dudes. Sadly without the whole “awesome dude who loves me in each place” bit of the story. Sadly.
Again, as with one of my other recent embarrassing admissions, rather than quoting from important “classics”, movies like this are the ones I quote all the time. You know, things like “You’ve done it, you should recognize the gesture.” or “Oh I missed you allright. But at this range, my aim is bound to improve.”

Guilty Pleasure

So I caught the middle third of this movie on cable the other day and realized I hadn’t watched it in ages, so pulled out the DVD (yes, I own a DVD of it. so sue me.). Man, there are some really laughable things in this movie, but it is still totally fun to watch. And contains one of my favorite all-time movie quotes, although it will be memorable to no one but me I am sure and I can’t even explain why I love this line so much: “Why, you’re all charm and grace, boy.” I say this to people under my breath ALL THE TIME (and sometimes not so under my breath). I love the gruff old men conversations in this movie. Oh yeah, it’s The Presidio (only $10 on amazon! how can you pass this up?). See, I told you! Laughable. But totally a rewatch-at-any-moment (for a good time call) candidate.
