Have I ever told you that You've Got Mail is one of my very favorite movies?
I have discovered as I've gotten older that I like movies for weird reasons. My #1 reason is usually because of a pretty set--Meg Ryan's apartment is about as close to perfection as I can imagine (though I often wonder where her junk is... I really am stuck on the whole de-junking thing). She also has a fabulous apartment in Kate & Leopold.
Maybe it's just a thing I have for Meg Ryan's homes in movies, but in The Women, she had a fabulous home, and her wardrobe was great. I think I already wrote about it. Yep, I did here. (That movie is weird, though--there are no men in it at all. None! Weird.) Anyway, when my hair's longer, I'm going to spend time curling it so it will look something like this:
ANYway, back to what I was saying. I've noticed that a lot of lines from You've Got Mail fit with my life lately. It's just the little things... bouquets of newly sharpened pencils... nothings turning into somethings... This probably all points to one thing: I've seen this movie too many times. I can think of a quote from it to fit almost anything in my life.
This is all to say, I'd like to have a penpal. I like writing letters. I'm not good at doing it in a timely fashion, but I genuinely like getting to know other people's stories, their backgrounds, and sharing myself with other people. Anyone need a penpal? Or an e-mail pal?
Also, I would like to have an apartment like Meg Ryan's in any given movie of hers.
I bought tulips this week, and they're spread all over our main floor living spaces. I love tulips. They smell so good, and they're so pretty.
This weekend, I'll probably edit photos (surprise, surprise) and watch movies on my computer simultaneously. It will be a good weekend--I just know it!
What are your plans? Do you like Meg Ryan, too? (If you don't, that's ok. Just don't tell me or we can't be friends.) (I'm kidding.) (Kind of.) (Ok, I don't like her plastic surgery as of late. And yet.)
