A Confession

OK, I'm ready to admit it.

Until reading her blog, I had no idea who Ryan Gosling was.

When I did learn about who he was, I couldn't really see what all the hype was about.

Okay looking, but nothing that special.

Nothing like my McDreamy.

I had not yet seen The Notebook.

Read it, yes. About 9 years ago.

I am not one for love stories.

Romantic comedies, yes.

Mushy love stories, not so much.

I can. not. believe. I. haven't. seen. this. movie. until. now.

I finally rented it after seeing so many people list it as one of their favorite movies.

It was even free, since my video store does a free birthday rental.

It was due back 18 minutes ago and I don't even care if they charge me for 5 more days.

It was that amazing.

Seriously, I don't have much else to say.

I am breathless.

I laughed.

I cried.

My heart skipped some beats.

I cried some more.

I am still choking up thinking about the entire story.

And Jen, I totally get it now.

I, too, am totally in love with Ryan.

(and aware that once again, I'm writing like Wendi)


One of the greatest movies I have ever seen.

And want to watch again and again.

If you have not yet seen The Notebook, get thee to a video store immediately!
PS- it looks like we WILL be charged for 5 more days by the video store, as they had locked their doors and would not let DH in! Sadly for me, DH put it in the drop-slot anyways!

Cute post. I am scared of that movie b/c I am certain that I will cry my eyes out (one reason I can't get enough Talladega tears!).

I never saw the movie til a year ago and finally buckled cos I wanted to see what all the hype was about. Though I didn't cry at all I did truly love it.

Oh, I love LOVE The Notebook! I am so glad you watched it and loved it, too. Now you see why we are all crushing on him (just a little bit) :)

I can't believe you haven't seen it before now!! It is one of my all time faves. I can only watch it about once a year, though- I can only be a sobbing, romantic mess every so often.

Guess I am gonna have to rent this now. I have never seen it. My hus is out of town next week so I will have to watch it then... (he's not much for the super mushy stuff either). Although he might like this one. Ok. I'll figure something out. ; )
