A Meg Ryan Movie Marathon

As I said on Monday, I'm really craving a Meg Ryan movie marathon.

It's probably because I'm in between that time of year when all I want to do is watch Halloween movies and that time of year when all I want to do is watch Holiday Movies.

Here's what I'm thinking:
"There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance...you're the worst kind. You're high maintenance but you think you're low maintenance."

"You're going to have to try and find a way of not expressing every feeling you have, every moment you have them."

"All I'm saying is that somewhere on there is the man you are supposed to marry. And if you don't get him first, somebody else will, and you'll have to spend the rest of your life knowing that somebody else is married to your husband."

"I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I got to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to begin as soon as possible."

"You don't want to be in love. You wan't to be in love in a movie."

"Destiny is something we've invented because we can stand the fact that everything that happens is accidental."

"Well, I'm gonna get out of bed every morning, breath in and out all day long. Then, after awhile I won't have to remind myself to get out of bed every morning and breath in and out, and then after awhile I won't have to think about how I had it great and perfect for a while."

"Well, it was a million tiny things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together."

"And, I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home, only to no home I'd ever known. It was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like...magic"

"When you're attracted to someone, it just means your subconscious is attracted to their subconscious, subconsciously. So what we think of as fate is just two neuroses knowing that they are a perfect match."

"Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life - well, valuable, but small - and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I dont really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void"

"The whole purpose of places like Starbucks if for people with no decision making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people who don't know what the hell they're doing or who on earth they are can, for only $2.95, get not just a coffee but an absolutely defining sense of self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino."

"I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You've got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you."

"People are always telling you that change is a good thing. But all they're really saying is that something you didn't want to happen has happened."

"Once I read a story about a butterfly in the subway, and today, I saw one! It got on at 42nd and off at 59th, where I assume it was going to Bloomingdales to buy a hat that will turn out to be a mistake, as almost all hats are."

"Dont you just love New York in the Fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address."

"The odd thing about this form of communication is that you're more likely to talk about nothing than something. But I just want to say that all this nothing has meant more to me than so many somethings."

p.s. in my research for this post, I discovered there will be a Toy Story 4. Color me excited.

p.p.s. I wish Kathleen Kelly and Joe Fox were real people, in love, in real life.
