Notting Hill…

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.

    yay short hair! I miss it sometimes!

    I love Notting Hill, although I was not the one to post on the movie. Any movie that has a real-life quality to it ends up being a favorite of mine, like (500) Days of Summer and High Fidelity (you’d like those if you haven’t seem them). It’s hard to go wrong with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant. And if you like Hugh Grant, watch About A Boy. Another favorite of mine that is sooooo sooooo good 🙂
