Sal: Gotta love a gal who knows her own mind...

Binnie you betta off.

Chris, dude, but you're unique! She's out there. I just know it...

Duncan: I hope you got your money back.

Robin: Then my work here is done...

Brooke, you bad girl, you.

Big Dreams: A smart man.

Ruth Yunker: Well, you've got your main three act beats figured out...


Never knew I could feel like this
Like I've never seen the sky before
I want to vanish inside your kiss
Every day I love you more and more

Listen to my heart, can you hear it sing
Telling me to give you everything
Seasons may change, winter to spring
But I love you, until the end of time

Come what may
Come what may
I will love you
Until my dying day


(that means 'none')


Thanks Billy and the beautiful writers here! I love coming here to inhale the creative minds and souls who hang out in this special place! HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL!

For me, the deal breaker would be someone who does not just LOVE movies and music!

We might have different tastes in some of the movies or some music, but he would have to have passion for movies and music.

May your holidays be shiny and bright!


Well, I always thought that smoking would be a deal-breaker, but I married a smoker anyway (although he's since quit of his own free will). BUT, movies, that's another story. No, I kid, I kid, but I will say... my friend knew it wasn't going to work out with a girl who checked her watch during the Jet song at West Side Story, and I have to say, disdain for WSS would trouble me - but my husband hasn't ever seen it so I reserve the right to make excuses later!


MaryAn: *sigh*

DebbieB: Good holiday thought!

Betsy: I can totally relate; you might find this post re: WSS amusing:


I'm a straight male and I enjoyed it. As did one of my other straight male friends.

Didn't like Baz's Romeo and Juliet much, but I enjoyed Tromeo and Juliet.

Would I break up with someone because of their taste in movies?

Hmm, anyone who believed Michael Moore or Al Gore documentaries are The Truth.

I don't want to come home one day to find the house had been sold for 3 magic beans.

Sorry I'm late for the party, we had a BIG wind storm out here in Washington and have just got our phone service back -- a week after the storm!

I'm a VERY opioniated person, and I could see how I could put myself in a pecarious position with I girl I'm interested in a good/movie bad movie debate. BUT I am maturing (I think) and have learned to bite my tongue and try to see it from someone elses perspective.

That said she'd better like "How to Loose a Guy in 10 Days," "13 Going on 30," "Sleepless in Seattle," "While You Were Sleeping" and the "The 40 Year Old Virgin" or she's going arround the block once and getting dropped off at the curb.

James Harvey in his great book on romantic comedy discusses how in some 30s movies it's aesthetic differences that either unite or divide a couple. I"m paraphrasing, I'm not at home now and don't have the book to consult, so I can't remember what specific film he was referring to -- but I think it was in his chapter on Leo McCarey (referring to The Awful Truth).

For me the dealbreaker is a love for Preston Sturges movies. I was clicking along with a guy I dated last year until he mentioned that he couldn't get into the Palm Beach Story. I said bye.

Most guys aren't into the odd little movies from the 30s that I adore, but usually we can find common ground in a love for Fellini. But If I ever met a guy who said that his favorite New Year's Eve movie is "One-Way Passage" (the version directed by Tay Garnett, with William Powell and Kay Francis), I would plotz with happiness.

hi billy

chitty chitty bang bang

kind of what i'm all about down deep, flying cars, kooky dads, beautiful moms in big dresses, crazy grandpas, evil people trying to enslave children
if she doesn't get it, she's not for me, sorry
congrats on the book!


Darkbuddha: It's true that the Truth is always somewhat elusive...

EC, you are definitely a hardcore rom-commist.

Zinnia: Your PASSAGE lover sounds like a rare bird, so I wish you good luck with that. And anyone who doesn't like Preston Sturges couldn't be much fun in bed.

Thank you Ed: CHITTY as a book always rang my bells...
