I know I’m about a million years too late, but I have a list of my favorite love songs for y’all. I meant to do this on Valentine’s Day, but I’m dumb and totally forgot.

Also, for being single I still managed to have a pretty kick ass Valentine’s Day. I am currently elbow deep in chocolate (thanks mom and Crystal!) and have a beautiful full bottle of vodka (thanks Dad!). I can’t wait to see what I get when I actually have a boyfriend!

I kid. I kid.

Oh and before I get to that list, can we just all agree to stop referring to Feb. 14 as Single Awareness Day? I mean, really. How ridiculous. If we’re being perfectly honest, wouldn’t every day be ‘single awareness day’? It’s not like I don’t know I’m single on March 7. Valentine’s Day does not bring the singleness out in us. Being single does.

Sigh. Moving on. I adore love songs. They’re just too sweet. So, grab a glass of wine, perhaps some chocolate (if you need some, I have about 10 pounds of it) and enjoy.

I had heard this song before, but I fell in love with it when Katy performed it at the Grammys. I’m a sucker for wedding footage.

Ugh, this song. I just love it. Plus I saw them sing this live back when I was an emo kid for a hot second. So that was cool.

Michael Buble. That is all.

I would not be against someone singing this song to me. Just saying.

You didn’t think I was going to NOT put an NSYNC song on here, did you? Silly. Also, how sexy is JC Chasez? Yummy.

Celine. Yes please.

I mean, duh. You guys should hear me try and sing this song. Ridiculous.

These aren’t in any particular order, but if I had to choose this song is probably my second favorite love song of all time. It never fails to make me happy.

So, what’s my number one you ask? Well seeing as how this list is full of mainstream acts (it’s a wonder Bieber didn’t make it in) you’ve probably guessed that my favorite love song is from….

Frank Sinatra? Yup, you guys I LOVE this song. Like, if someone held a gun to my head and made me pick the song that I want to dance to at my wedding, it would be this one.

Not that someone would have to put a gun to my head to make me decide. It’s obviously already done.

Gosh, I hope Mr. Mansee doesn’t mind.

What’s your favorite love song?


What I’ve learned from “You’ve Got Mail”

10 Sep


Okay, so I realize this seems so super random, but I have an unnatural obsession with this movie (along with Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and other things only 12-year-old children should love–except I’m not ashamed because, frankly, their music makes me SO happy).

But I digress.

Anyway, I probably watch You’ve Got Mail at least once a week–maybe once every two weeks if I’m super busy, which isn’t very often because even when I say I’m super busy I normally make the time to watch a movie that I’ve seen 50 times a year over the last six years.

I’ve learned…

1. That only a movie this cute could make me stop crushing on every American tennis player (John Isner or Sam Querrey, please marry me?) and the JoBros and start envisioning my life with a middle-aged bookstore owner. (Hey, at least it’s a super bookstore!) (And he’s rich, just saying.) (And I really like parantheses.)

2. If you set up a time to finally meet the man you’ve fallen in love with via e-mail and he doesn’t show, do not assume he was the rooftop killer and is now sitting in jail. He’s not. HOWEVER, if you set up a time to meet the creeper you met via Craigslist, go ahead and assume he is the rooftop killer because he probably is. Actually, assume this before you even go onto Craigslist. (The latter I did not learn from the movie, but rather from the fact that I’m no stupid.)

3. I will not be hiring a nanny for my future children. I’m too scared she will run away with my future husband….or me.

4. That if AOL did not exist, we might not have been graced with this movie. I know, I don’t even want to think about it.

5. That it is not in good form to eat the caviar that surrounds dishes. (Actually, is this true? Can someone who frequently eats fancy food confirm this for me please?)

6. Everybody should have a friend like Dave Chappelle.

7. Apparently the reason men love “The Godfather” so much can be explained in a paragraph long Instant Message.

8. This movie is so old, it actually featured Instant Messaging, not Facebook chatting. Odd how that makes me feel slightly old.

9. Watching always makes me desperately wish I lived in New York. Okay, so does Sex and the City and the fact that I’ve lived anywhere but NYC, but still I get little “If only!” pangs everytime.

10. Tom Hanks yelling “I was eloquent” while on a treadmill can crack me up no matter how shitty I feel.

11. Sometimes when I log into my hotmail, I wish a gentleman would tell me “You’ve Got Mail.” It just seems fun.

12. Every wondered what the friendliest flower is? The daisy. Thanks to Meg Ryan/Kathleen Kelly for pointing this one out.

13. That I want this: “I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn’t have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, “Hey, how about… oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie… for as long as we both shall live?” AND then this: “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.”


Other fun quotes (copied and pasted from IMDb)

Joe Fox: Because we’re going to sell them cheap books and legal addictive stimulants. In the meantime, we’ll just put up a big sign: “Coming soon: a FoxBooks superstore and the end of civilization as you know it.”

Joe Fox: Tweaking? A project that needs “tweaking”?
Kathleen Kelly: Yes.
Joe Fox: T-w-e-a-k-i-n-g.
Kathleen Kelly: -i-n-g. That’s what he said.
Joe Fox: I think he’s married. Married, three kids.

Joe Fox: Kevin, this is possibly the most adorable creature I’ve ever been in contact with, and if she turns out to be as good looking as a mailbox… I would be crazy enough to turn my life upside down and marry her.

Kathleen Kelly: I love daisies.
Joe Fox: You told me.
Kathleen Kelly: They’re so friendly. Don’t you think daisies are the friendliest flower?

Kathleen Kelly: 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’s *personal* to a lot of people. And what’s so wrong with being personal, anyway?

Okay, I’ll stop now.
