"Marley and Me" or Cry fest '09

It was around 9:30 last night when I finished my homework and saw the oh so adorable commercial for the movie "marley and me". I thought about how I hadn't seen the movie and how i really wanted to, but hadn't gotten around to it. SO I made mistake number 1! I got comfy on my futon, got on itunes and rented this blessed movie....

The first hour and a half I was preparing myself for what was to come... I knew what was going to happen because I read the book when I was little. But hey, things like that don't usually bother me. Mistake number 2: Believing I was "stronger" than this. So I was watching the movie and I actually liked it a lot. I have to say I have a weakness for Owen Wilson and I really like Jennifer Aniston.

Here comes the sad part.... I"m sitting in my room, in the dark, while my roommate is sleeping ever so soundly and it is as if the flood gates were opened..... I SOBBED! No, I wept. I don't think I have cried that much in a very long time... Now, it may not have been only the movie that made me cry, as most of you know it had been 8 years since my Dad passed away on Tuesday, and the emotions were still a little raw.... That was mistake number 4.

As the movie ended, I continued to cry, no sob, no weep.... and made my way to the bathroom where I discovered mascera.... EVERYWHERE! Not just under my eyes, but down my cheeks, on my neck, smeared on my t-shirt.... mistake number 5.... wash your face BEFORE watching Marley and Me.

Overall, it was a great movie and I totally enjoyed it!

I know it's been awhile since I"ve updated my Blog but things really have been crazy around here. I've been doing school work, real work, and family work.

This post is dedicated to my Dad, the lover of all things....


Love to all

He would have cried too. He was such marshmallow man.

I'm convinced that crying, even just a little, at movies is OK...

Precisely the reason I can't see this movie. My favorite awesome dog, my baby Yukon, was a yellow lab. She was the most beautiful, horribly behaved brute on four legs, and I loved her. So much as I think the movie looks great, I must decline. Glad you enjoyed it, regardless of the tears, and I love you!
