I have no idea why I feel so compelled to watch Hope Floats.  I don’t even like Sandra Bullock.  And this movie is pretty depressing. I’ve seen it half a dozen times and yet I picked it over Law & Order.  Granted I’m working, so it’s just background noise, but what is it that makes me choose this?  Harry Connick Jr?  Maybe, seriously, every time his character is on screen I’m like, “where’s mine? I want one just like that.”  Sigh.  Sometimes I am such a girl. Oh man, he just came on screen in a ‘Texas Rebel Radio’ t-shirt. Want want want.

I don’t know why, but I find this article strangely pleasing: Political (neck)ties.

Yesterday I worked out, ate healthy, and worked a long shift.  Today I have not yet gotten dressed and am having potato chips and Little Debbie cakes for lunch.  In my defense I am working today.  Or trying too.  Anyway I’m getting stuff done.  Some stuff.

  1. ooooh I find myself enthralled by Hope Floats too!! It’s totally the Harry Connick factor. He’s just so HUGE. I loved that movie so much when it came out, then watched it again a couple of months ago, and realised that you never really recover from the abject humiliation at the start, and the happy ending is actually a bit of a mess. But DAMN, huge, drawling, tight-jeans wearing, *kind* Harry Connick gets me every time. SIGH.

    (also your flickr pictures look totally beautiful)

  2. Yes, this: jeans.
