today i'm supposed to write about my favorite movie.
but riddle me this:
does anyone actually have a favorite movie?
i mean, really?
i don't think so.
so after putting off this entry all day, i've decided to narrow my "favorite" down to three favorites.
when i was little i would beg my mom to let me rent this movie.
i remember none of my siblings would want to watch it so my mom and i would go watch it together in her room.
at about age 14 i became..slightly..
yes, obsessed with this movie.
it could be due to my incredible lack of friendship at that age, but i promise you i watched this movie every day for an entire school year.
please do not judge.
i'm certain i could quote the entire movie from beginning to end.
i could name every character and point out all of the bloopers they didn't take out.
i know every word to every song.
and, as embarrassing as it is to admit, i could probably do the dances as well.
if i didn't list newsies as one of my all time favorite movies i would deserve to go in the boo box.
which leads me to my next favorite movie.
i highly doubt a day goes by that i don't quote this movie.
the children were screaming!
..i've lost my marbles..
flunk the maggot.
oh! there you are, peter!
these are daily phrases for me.
i love garrett for not only putting up with it, but also for continuing the quote.
if i ever meet someone who hasn't seen this movie, i will judge them.
and then they will watch it with me even if it is against their will.
and they will get over the fact that i will say each line 2 seconds before it's said in the movie.
what a fantastic movie.
run home, jack.
so. drumroll, please.
the third movie, i admit, i actually hated the first time i saw it in the movie theater.
but i have grown to see the error of my ways and i will proudly state that
is one of my very, very favorite movies of all time.
i don't want to have a boring blog and just write blah blah blah crap
so i'll leave it at this:
she doesn't even go here!!
so there are my three favorite movies.
it's a strange brew of cinematic greats, but i think it makes me a well rounded person.
okay, maybe not.
i stand by them.
in other news,
i went to the doctor today.
i don't have strep but i do have the symptoms.
and i have a lump the size of an orange in my throat making simple things like
swallowing my own spit
very uncomfortable and difficult.
i slept for most of the day.
and now i am going to go take some tylenol pm and sleep some more.
i hate being sick.
when I dream on my own i'm alone, but I ain't lonely. for a dreamer, night's the only time of day...i aint getting any younger. and before my dying day i want space, not just air. let them laugh in my face. i don't care. save a place. i'll be there
