So, I'm doing this poll thing at work. At least that what everyone has assumed it is. As a matter of fact it is more of just curiosity overwhelming me these days. I spent an entire night just questioning a coworker on what he liked and disliked. Maybe I'm just being paranoid but I get the feeling I haven't discovered some things about myself yet. I did however discover an interesting fact. I've been asking people their absolute favorite movie of all time. I got many varied answers...each one a discovery of those folks I work with. But it took nearly two days of asking others their favorite movie before someone actually turned around and asked me what my favorite was. What is my favorite movie? If I only had that one absolute choice of which movie I loved best in the ENTIRE world...well, I think I'd be stumped. There are movies in the past that have just struck a cord deep inside my chest and made me think twice.
Then there are the movies I've seen at least 40 times. But I can honestly say now, I am a total romantic. I want the knight on the white horse. I want the rescue. And still I stay here in my two-story castle and wonder when my knight will come. I wander day to day, never knowing (but somehow feeling) my days of romance are passed. Those romantic movies (aka Pretty Woman, Titanic, Pearl Harbor) will always set the standard in my mind of what it should be like. Of the emotions I should feel when with a man. Yet, almost something I have tasted but never fully dined on. Oh I could go all night on that one. What it comes down to is that I live in a dream world. And living like that will not get me the love I crave. It's not really the love or anything that mote. It is the feeling that comes from being with someone and just being comfortable. Just being able to hold hands or cuddle with no remote possibility of ever having to move. Wanting the night to go on forever.
I guess I better open my eyes wider.
Oh, and by the way. My favorite movie. "Where The Heart Is"
There is an excellent site that explains more about this movie. When I first saw the trailer and read the description I was very turned off. I thought that whoever came up with the idea for the movie must have been stoned out of their gourd. But I happened to catch the last hour of the movie one night and just fell head over heels in love with it. I guess it's because it's a growing movie. It shows the path that most people fight to get to in their lives.
Anyway, check out the site. Here's the link:
