Are you participating in the April A to Z Challenge this year? If so, have you chosen your theme? As soon as talk began to circulate about the Linky List going up, my mind churned with ideas, and I am zeroing in on mine! Deciding on the theme is the most difficult part of this enterprise. Well, maybe writing the posts ranks up there, too. And then when April hits visiting all the sites and making the comments AND writing posts. ::scratches head:: Okay, the whole thing is a Freakin' Challenge, hence the name.
If you haven't heard of the A to Z or signed up, follow THIS LINK for the details and the Linky List. The gist of this challenge is posting something every day in April, but Sunday. Last year was my first experience with A to Z. I learned a lot. For instance, having HALF of your posts written when April 1st arrives is NOT going to cut it. In mid-April my life flipped to chaos. Write them ALL before it starts. I also learned when the posts are written ahead of time that it's a lot of Fun. Why? Because it is all about reading new blogs and meeting new friends. Awesome. Amazing. Wonderful. When your posts aren't written it's none of those things. So, learn from me... do it (you'll thank yourself later), but make the posts short, and write them before it starts!
If you're wondering why I am not on the Linky List yet, well... I MUST commit to my theme before I sign up. It's just my way.
Now, let's get down to the romance!
I am tagging all of these Love Is In The Air (even though the hop
is over) and the following is a list of all the posts with links, so
that you can watch any of your favorites that you missed.
Back at the beginning of this thing I asked YOU to share what you think
are the most romantic moments on the big and small screen. I posted four
of them over the weekend. I will still post them if you share in the
Speaking of comments, some of your comments crack me up! Over the
weekend I ran all movies and several of you indicated you'd never seen
those TV shows. Hahahaha. I realize I must be more clear about what I am
posting, since I am doing both.
This is from a TV show.
I am going to confess right here that I love a prime-time soap. I grew up in the days when Dallas, Dynasty, Knot's Landing, and Falcon Crest all were riding the high in the TV ratings. So, it now won't come as any shock that I caved and watched Gossip Girl on the CW. As far as I was concerned, the only people worth watching on that show were Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair (Leighton Meester). I had a devil of a time choosing JUST ONE scene for Love Is In The Air.
When you love someone you APOLOGIZE.
Another bit of business for the record... I hate that quote from Love Story by Erich Segal: "Love means never having to say you're sorry." That is just Crap.
Roll the footage, please:
"I'm sorry for losing my temper the night when you told me Louie proposed to you.
I'm sorry for not waiting longer at The Empire State Building.
I'm sorry for treating you like property.
I'm sorry I didn't tell you loved you when I knew I did.
And, most of all, I'm sorry that I gave up on us, and you never did."
And now for the movie fans, here is a clip from a Movie.
We are on the apology roll, so this seems fitting.
Roll the footage, please:
That was a very early Heath Ledger movie called 10 Things I Hate About You.
"It's not every day you'll find a girl who'll flash someone to get you out of detention."
Are you participating in the A to Z Challenge? Have you chosen your theme? What aspect of the challenge do you find most difficult? Do you watch any prime-time soaps? Think Erich Segal was right about apologies? Like the clip from Gossip Girl? 10 Things I Hate About You?
