I just watched Notting Hill for the first time in my entire life (stop judging me…) and the only thing I could think of for at least HALF the movie is that I read a blogger who LOVES this movie and for the LIFE of me, I cannot remember who it was.
I remember there was a reference to the movie in a blog post that used THIS line: “This is one of those key moments in life when it’s possible you can be really genuinely cool and I’m going to fail just a hundred percent.” What a fantastic line.
I have to admit, I REALLY liked it. Enough that I’d probably even buy it. It was cute, it was hilarious, it was even a little sappy and romantic. But more to the point, I feel like it was kinda real life. People weren’t perfect and situations didn’t escalate to bizarre as movies normally do. It was just a really cute, feel good movie.
So whoever you are, my mystery blog friend, I just want to say THANK YOU for blogging about Notting Hill and getting me to FINALLY take the dive and watch it. It was amazing.
On a completely unrelated note, I hacked all my hair off. Behold, the before and after pics:
I liked the long hair thing, but I decided that it was just time to go short again. I haven’t regretted it in the least, either. It’s WAY easier to manage and maintain, I use less product, and it looks just as cute as really long hair. I’m sure I’ll grow the hair out again someday, but for now, short is in.
