Okay, I FINALLY got to see the season finale/premier of Grey’s Anatomy. Long story on how I HATED the 1st season ending and the fact that I was being obsessive about seeing it every week!! Every time I feel like I’m getting obsessive about anything, I try to stop to make sure that I’m in control and not simply moved….so I’ve come to the realization that I LOOOOOOVE that show!! Okay yes, it’s the actors, but the WRITING!! OH-MY-GAW!!! It’s SO exactly on!!!!!!! They’ve got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jeeze!! So unexplainable, now I have to buy the 2nd season and watch it one weekend!!! OYE!!!!!! I so cried on a day I wasn’t supposed to!
BTW – Rafa won……

You may have to suffer through the previous blog to get the entire “feel” of why I like this line!!!
Fox: “The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no decision making ability what-so-ever to make 6 decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark……caff, decaff……….low fat, non fat…etc. So people who don’t know what the “heck” they’re doing or who on earth they are…..can…for only 2-95……get, not just a cup of coffee….but…. an absolutely defining sense of self. Tall…..decaff…..cappuccino!!”
SOOOOOOO True!! What do I get at Starbucks? A tall, Passion TAZO Tea…HOT!! Usually no sweetener…
WAIT!! Okay another line….that I find myself saying:
Typewriter Man: “….you are a lone reed…”
That’s all I’m putting about that scene…VERY funny!!
Ok, and I’m tired, so…. “good night dear void….” And good night Fox!! Whoever you are!! F-O-X!!
WAIT….good grief….one last one…..
KK: “Ya know the world is not driven by discounts, believe me, I have been in business forever, I mean I started helping my mother after school here when I was 6 years old and I used to watch her. And it wasn’t that she was just selling books, it was that she was helping people become whoever it was they were gonna turn out to be…because when you read a book as a child, it becomes part of your identity, in a way that no other reading in your whole life does and I’ve…. I’ve gotten carried away…”
Ya know today was one of those days where I just wanted an evening to veg…or vedge! (How do you spell that anyway!!?? You know what I meant…) I was supposed to go see some friends of mine, but I just had so much on my plate for today, I just had to cancel! SO, I got most of what I needed to do, done, so I’m sitting here relaxing on my bed, sipping Chamomile tea & watching TNT! And what happens to be on? You’ve Got Mail! Now, I’m not one for romance movies, but this one, I have to admit…I love!! And I am SOOOO Meg Ryan….well….Kathleen Kelly’s character! (But at least I know it!!) I have a “typewriter” friend…one that’s been in my life for years…life imitating art…hmmmmm…. Moving on…I’m at the “you are nothing but a suit” speech!! In my opinion it really is a smart romance movie! Like, as the movie mentions and alludes to life imitating art AND my favorite classic book, Pride & Prejudice, it’s smartly done! (Abigail….HUSH!!!)
RANDOM LINE: “…a hotdog is singing…you need quiet when a hotdog is singing!?” This is a GREAT scene….“YOU forgive ME???” Life imitating ART!!! I’ve SOOO had this conversation!! And one of the best estrogen lines of the movie: “There is the dream of someone else….” And yeah, chic at the closing, I loved Anne Shirley too….Anne with an “e.” Which is probably why I like red-heads….also because of my sister! J
More great lines:
“People are always telling you that change is a good thing, but all they’re really saying is that something you didn’t want to happen at all…has happened!…the truth is, I’m heart broken. I feel as if a part of me had died…and no one could ever make it right.”
…and yes a baby Gap IS depressing!
I swear I’ve seen this movie a zillions times!! And I should mention that the soundtrack is GREAT!!!
What do Martini’s taste like?…never mind, I don’t wanna know….watching the movie as I type…obviously!
Other GREAT Lines:
Papa Fox: “I just have to meet someone new that’s all…that’s the easy part.”
Little Fox: “Oh yeah, right! A snap to find the one single person in the world who fills your heart with joy.”
(fade in to MUSIC: Signed, Sealed, Delivered!!) One of the BEST, MOST AWESOME songs in the universe!! Stevie, you ROCK!!!!
Papa Fox: “….have YOU??”
(…here I am, Signed, sealed, delivered, I’m yours!!)
hmmm….he has a big nose in the door-lookey-outtie-thingy!! J HA!!!
and daisies ARE the friendliest flower!!
Another LINE moment!! I say this one all of the time!!!
Fox: “It wasn’t personal!”
KK: “What…what is that supposed to mean? I am so sick of that!! All that means is that it wasn’t personal to you! But it was personal to me. It was personal for a lot of people! I mean what is so wrong with being personal anyway?….my head is starting to get fuzzy…”
Another GREAT scene!!! Not experienced that one…at least not that I’ve realized…and NO internet dating! ARG!!! I do remember when they were powerful words to me though….“you’ve got mail.”
Another GREAT line:
KK: “I’ve been thinking about this…and I think we should meet!”
Fox: “We should meet, & we will meet….but I’m in the middle of a project that needs…tweaking.”
(this one just makes me giggle!! “Tweaking!!” HA!!! I now love that word!!!)
152….HA! Great scene! The WHOLE scene is AWESOME!! HA!!! “…is she a pilot???”
And the BEST scene?? From the “He’s primed you!”
Fox: “Ya know, sometimes I wonder.”
Fox: “Well…if I hadn’t been Fox books and you hadn’t been the “Shop Around the Corner,” & you and I had just met…”
KK: “I know,”
Fox: “Yeah, yeah, I would have asked for you number. And I wouldn’t have been able to wait 24 hours before calling you up and saying, yeah how ‘bout…..oh, how ‘bout some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner…or a movie….for as long as we both shall live.”
Fox: “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.”
KK: “…well who fights about that?”
Fox: “well, some people….not us….”
KK: “we would never…”
Fox: “if only…”
KK: “….hmm…I gotta go!”
Fox: “…well let me ask you something…how can you forgive this guy for standing you up, and not forgive me for this tiny little thing….of putting you out of business….oh how I wish you would.”
KK: “I really have to go!”
Fox: “Yeah, well, you don’t wanna be late.”
Why does she wear so much grey at the end of the movie??
And the BEST line!! (while playing Somewhere Over the Rainbow!)
KK: “I wanted it to be you, I wanted it to be you so badly!”
I struggled over the grammar of that sentence forever and a day!! I am SUCH a boring person!! :P
It was an AWESOME cast too!!! Great acting! In my opinion!! Real, but real good! J
A RANDOM not-about-the-movie remark: My left thumb is…trembling. It doesn’t really hurt, but it’s a muscle thing I think…it started this morning when I woke up and is still trembling! Am I typing too much?? Hmmmmm…..
Oh and one more line…from the beginning…on why Fox Books is gonna “get ‘em in the end…”
Fox: “…because we’re gonna sell them cheap books and legal addictive stimulants….”

Okay, I forgot to show this picture....i was just impressed my camera phone worked right...i SOOOO need an upgrade!! ARG!!! Anywho, Lew was SO funny, when I was talking to him on the phone he kept saying....
"Okay, when you get into town I want to you look right in front of the Salt Palace!! Don't forget, you HAVE to look...it's something REALLY cool!!"
So, being intrigued, I simply HAD to look!! And what did I see? THIS!!

Okay Grand Saline was really fun!! Everyone was SO nice!! It’s a small town where everyone knows EVERYTHING about EVERYONE!! Which can be cool…or not so cool according to a really cool check out girl at Brookshires! J I completely understand though!! Everybody in “your” business? Eek!! She was so funny! Well, I stayed at an AWESOME Bed & Breakfast called Little Fannie’s! (…the story about it is AWESOME too!!) Anywho I went into town to get some vittles for in the morning….because I’m picky…(hee, hee)…and when I was checking out she (the really cool check out girl at Brookshires) said…so you’re the girl who’s picture’s been all in the paper! I was like….uh yeah, I guess that’s me! (Eek!!)
Anyway, the concert was SO much fun!! And people actually danced!! (Yeah!!!) I did however goof on Dancing in the Dark/Night & Day!! I’m not sure what happened, but I lost it…the words…I know I said something…in rhythm…and as I understand…it even rhymed!! ARG!!! I thought only my mother and producer, Bill (who came…thank you SO much you are SO awesome and having my first “Canton” experience with you was FAN-TABULOUS!!! I love you, Bill!! And I LOVE my gifts!! And I can’t WAIT to see the dresses Reggie has for me!!!!….insert music…..“I feel pretty, oh so pretty…..”) Okay, back to the concert….I thought no one would know, but….JOSH!!! Lew’s cool son with REALLY awesome hair…came up to me and said, “so, did you change the words to Dancing in the Dark/Night & Day?” I was like, oh my gosh, yeah, I had a brain laps. And Josh told me that he had listened to my CD quite a bit and so he knew I messed up, BUT he said that unless you knew, you wouldn’t have even guessed!! Mom and Lew told me the same thing!! YEAH!! Oh well, no one’s perfect!! And sometimes that’s hard for me to deal with!!!! At least…ME being perfect!! (hee, hee!!!)
More later, but Grand Saline…was awesome!! Thank you Grand Saline for making me feel so special….i’m SOOOO honored that you asked me!!!
