I am a sucker for love stories, let’s just put that out there. I don’t mind that most love stories are based on completely unrealistic pairings of people (insanely polar opposite pairings, rich guy/poor girl, poor guy/rich girl, etc.) or the story lines are far from plausible. I just love the idea of two people meeting, them sharing great chemistry, and having a humorous adventure along the way. Seriously, I am the kind of girl for whom the big movie studies make movies like “Failure to Launch”, “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”, and “Pretty Woman.” Clearly, I am barely scratching the surface of all the romantic comedies out there, but I love the movies I just mentioned. I also really, really, really enjoy “The Family Stone.”
It makes me think of my own wonderfully dysfunctional family and all our eccentric behaviors. I still laugh each time I watch it and I am not bothered that it’s incredibly unrealistic.
Tonight, however, we ended our day watching my favorite episode of “Gilmore Girls.” While I absolutely love this show and have watched it beginning to end countless times already, the episode “You Jump, I Jump Jack” brings the biggest smile to my face. I love the sense of adventure that the character Logan Huntzberger brings into Rory’s life.
I wouldn’t call myself an adventurous person, so there are some risks that I really admire of people, like this scene of everyone jumping off the scaffolding. I enjoy it even more because everyone is dressed up in their finest attire for this big event.
And random trivia about me-I love the word “parasol”; I love how classy it sounds and I also love the French word for umbrella, “parapluie.”
