500 Days of Summer

I fell in love with "500 Days of Summer" quite some time ago. (I actually think I first saw this movie with buds/blog readers Jon, Brett, and Kristie - holla!) This love has been a topic of much debate amongst my fellow females because some do not like the "harsh reality" of the story. I'm also a big fan of other harshies like "He's Just Not that into You" (or she, as the case may be).

I had the pleasure of watching this film again this past weekend and was reminded of so many of the reasons why I love the story. No amount of paraphrasing can compete with the exact quotes, so I suggest you go on over to IMDB.com and look up some gems.

One of my favorites is this conversation:
Summer: I woke up one morning and I just knew.
Tom: Knew what?
Summer: What I was never sure of with you.

Almost all of us have been in a relationship at one time or another that, for no explicable reason, just did not feel "right." Some of us have been in relationships that, for no explicable reason, do feel "right."

Here's to hoping that one morning I wake up and I am sure of a relationship in a way I've never been sure of before.

Gotta say I loved the tag at the beginning:

"The following is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental.

Especially you Jenny Beckman.

Woo! Thanks for the shout out!

Holla! Still one of my faves, though Karl's not a fan.
