The Notebook

I finally saw The Notebook tonight. I've posted this YouTube link before a year or two ago on this blog, but after actually seeing the movie, this quick video is even more powerful.



Great movie on a lonely Monday night. I especially enjoyed the scenes where the couple contemplated their future, and that theme seemed to take up quite a bit of time in the movie. There are so many questions when two people fall in love, wondering if it will all work out. How do you truly know if someone loves you? Watching The Notebook makes me want to write a waiting to happen love story, because that is where I'm at right now. I've loved, I've liked for primarily physical reasons, I've stayed when the love was gone, and I've lost. Right now I'm searching and waiting. I could meet her anywhere.

It would be fun to write a story about where I'm at, and I'm sure where many other men and women find themselves as well. Wanting love, lusting for love, knowing it will happen sooner or later, but the longer we wait, the more impatient we become. It is sad to think about two people across the hall from each other, both looking for love, but neither wanting to take the first step. It is funny to think back to the times I've taken the first step and failed miserably. There is a pretty cute barista a friend of mine has the hots for, and I really hope one day he'll go up to her while she's working and ask her out to coffee... then smack his head and say "Stupid!" ala Chris Farley. I think that could get him a date.

In updated news, crazy dream girl is definitely crazy. She showed up to the super bowl party with her new boyfriend, which was a bit awkward, seeing how the last time we talked she was kissing me... then cut off communication. I tried to ignore her, but ended up being civil and joking it up with the two of them. After halftime, crazy dream girl came and sat down on the arm of the couch next to me and said she was sorry. Then she said her and her new boyfriend weren't dating, and that she would really like to get away with me sometime soon... so the guy she was calling "baby" all afternoon and kissing... she didn't consider herself dating... ??? I told her it would be fun to get outdoors, but that she is fucking psycho and although I'm sure the sex would be great, no thanks crazy bitch!

This post started out really sappy and ghey. Then I kept reading and the real MHG came out. Glad I stuck around to read the last paragraph.

Oh and as for that other crap - it will just happen when you least expect it.

So stop looking for it.

It will happen. And you're totally young.

I actually had to watch the Notebook twice to appreciate it - but now I like it.

Crazy dream girl just needs to be called crazy girl.
