Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flower?

The absence of Dancing With the Stars has left a 2 hour void in my Monday night television lineup. You see, I (we) usually watch DWTS until 9 and then flip it over and watch the end of the Monday night football game. It's our little compromise. Well, last week was the final week of DWTS...So until January 4th I'm at a loss. January 4th is when I absolutely have to make the decision to give in or stand firm in my decision to not watch the Bachelor cheese it up on my TV screen for 16 weeks. I'll say it again...Jake?? Really ABC??

Because there was nothing on the major networks it forced me to flip through the guide and at last my eyes rested upon my entertainment for the next 2 hours....You've Got Mail was on! Some of you may not know that this is one of my favorite movies if not my favorite movie. I truly think I know every line, but I still get all nervous at the end when they are about to "meet" each other for the first time. And I always feel so embarrassed for her while she sits in the cafe with her book and her rose fidgeting...waiting to meet the man that will never come.

Oh, it is so good. So, so good. And last night I got to watch it and blurt out the movie lines without annoying everyone around me. I don't know what it is about movies being on TV...because I have them all on DVD yet I will sit and watch them from start to finish (with commercials!!???) when it's on TV. Do you do this??

Joe: You know, sometimes I wonder...
Kathleen: What?
Joe: Well... if I hadn't been Fox Books and you hadn't been The Shop Around the Corner, and you and I had just, well... met...
Kathleen: I know.
Joe: Yeah. I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn't have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, "Hey, how about... oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie... for as long as we both shall live?"
Kathleen: Joe...
Joe: And you and I would have never been at war. And the only thing we'd fight about would be which video to rent on a Saturday night.
Kathleen: Well, who fights about that?
Joe: Well, some people. Not us.
Kathleen: We would never.
Joe: If only.

Swoon! Love it. I also Love, Love, this little ditty whose birthday is today!! Happiest of birthday's to my sister. :)

I ALWAYS do that. If a movie's on TV, it's like I HAVE to watch it. And it's so annoying with all the commercials. WHY do we do this??

katie newton said...

I also torture myself with commercials when I could just reach into our movie drawer and put the dang disk in! But, that would require more effort than I am usually willing to give. :):)

At least you watched an all-time classic... "How do you spell your name? F-O-X" :)

I, too, am at a loss on what to do on Monday nights. We do the same thing- DWTS and the rest of the Monday night football game. I mean, I guess I could workout...

I flipping love that movie! I think it's cause I adore Meg Ryan! Such a great flick!

Kristen said...

Well aren't you sweet?

And on a different note, this is one of those movies that I watched with wide eyes and felt the absolute need to live in NYC. I will never watch it without that mindset, and for that, I'll forever love it.
