…The Beginning of Everything

The girly, romantic side of me sighs every time I read the above F. Scott Fitzgerald quote. The cynical, damaged side of me wants to roll my eyes and grab a bowl of ice cream. Today, the girly side wins.

P.S. Both sides of me hated “The Notebook.” (Gasp! I may be the only female in the country that didn’t swoon over that movie. I was too busy making gagging noises).

P.P.S. While I’m in confession mode, I also really disliked “Fifty Shades of Gray.” I thought it was poorly written, the storyline was unrealistic and the characters annoyed me.

Happy Monday!

I hated the Notebook and 50 Shades too!

I DIDN’T LIKE FIFTY SHADES EITHER. Why don’t people get that this is an awful book with NO plot line, character development, or actual substance?? It’s just erotic fiction, so don’t sell it to me like some amazing story!

Fantastic quote! Now perhaps you know what I see in you and the other beautiful women in my life. You are held on a certain platform that so few are. I pride the standard you hold yourself to and expect nothing less from my Bestie, my Counterpart!

Big high-fives on ALL accounts. That quote is amazing. Even if it’s falling in love with yourSELF, it’s quite amazing.

And I’m with you on the Notebook. I FINALLY saw it a few months ago at my friends’ request. They sat in front of the tv, passing the tissue and choking back sobs; I had to bite my tongue to not LAUGH at so many places. And they all glared at me when I DARED to speak up in defense of the poor fiance she left behind because her old flame popped back into her life. I felt sooooo bad for HIM!

And once again, I have to agree with you on the Fifty Shades of Grey front. Um, can we say “thinly disguised porn?” Now, I’m ALL for a good “romance” novel (teehee), but c’mon… I realized this was bad from the FIRST paragraph. (I remember reading the same synonym 3 times in one sentence… no joke. I was out.) I have NO problem with those people that like the book (cuz, come on… those scenes ARE really HOTTT), but let’s call it what it is. P-O-R-N. Stop trying to pretend you’re reading it for the “romance,” people.
