Love Is In The Air ~ Those Three Little Words

Only two more days, including today, of romantic clips. Tomorrow is HERE'S TO YOU day and Friday is Valentine's Day. Wow.

Now I will have to dig deep and come up with new material for this blog. No worries, though. The A to Z Challenge will be here before we know it and then the fun doesn't stop for an entire month!!!

Are you participating in the April A to Z Challenge? Have you chosen your theme? Written your posts? In other words, are you ready to rumble???

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. Thank you to everyone who has commented with your favorite romantic scenes. I have enjoyed watching them on YouTube. I no longer have time to post them in this series, but I *might* include them on the HERE'S TO YOU post;)

Speaking of comments, some of your comments crack me up! Once 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.


I suspect that many of you didn't watch the TV Show that I am about to feature here. It was another show that only lasted one season and then the network yanked it. I am beginning to equate the quality of a show with the shortness of its run. Obviously, there are exceptions to that rule. The truth is that it is really tough for a show that doesn't follow a CSI format to make it . In other words, the staple is now crime drama. This is beginning to feel like a rant for my TV Blog (TV Junction Function) so I am going to just stop. Now.

Moonlight, starring Alex O'Loughlin, is the show I am featuring. If the actor's name sounds familiar to you, he now plays Steve McGarrett on Hawaii Five-O (see notes about crime drama above). However, I am just glad that he is on the small screen at all. Moonlight had so much potential. One of the reasons I like this scene so much is because Mick says those words that every woman longs to hear: "You were right all along."

Roll the footage...

The next clip is from the Movie He's Just Not That Into You. IMDB sums up the plot like this: "The Baltimore-set movie of interconnecting story arcs deals with the challenges of reading or misreading human behavior." The characters in this clip, Alex and Gigi, have been circling each other since the film began. He notices her dating mis-steps and coaches her on Dos and Don'ts, as well as explaining if a guy does (insert example) he's just not that into you.  Of course, she fell for him and he rebuffed her. So she moved on. She has just come back from a date with another guy and...

Roll the footage...

There it is again... the words that every girl wants to hear: "You were right."

Sweet, sweet music.


  1. Never heard of Moonlight, but I'm not a big TV person. I am an A to Z person, though.

  2. Yep, I'm in the Challenge. I've started writing my posts already but still have a way to go.

    I never saw the TV show Moonlight but I did see He's Really Not That Into You. It was pretty good.

  4. I think CBS really regrets ending Moonlight right before the who vampire craze took off.

  5. I've heard those three little words ("get lost creep") enough for one lifetime...or did you mean OTHER words?

    I actually liked Moonlight, although like all TV since 2000 or so, I watched it off of a DVD set in marathon form. I find it funny that now "binge-watching" is a craze and I have been doing it since they started releasing the X-Files on DVD.

    I also like "Not That Into You" because I agree with Justin Long-only in Hollywood does the guy keep pursuing the woman who is rebuffing him and finally win her over. In real life, that's stalking, usually followed up by a restraining order (for the record, not spoken from experience).

    If they're not into you, they're not. Move on.

  6. I've never done the AtoZ. I admire those that do. It takes some time and planning doesn't it?

  7. So that's all I had to say to Sweetie? "You were right?"

    And here I thought it was "Sure, buy that."

    HA HA, it's funny because it's stereotypical.

    I really enjoy these posts. And you mentioned Alex O' Laughlin, who was one of the 65 Hunks Of The Week I had Sweetie pick out long ago, because I'm the kind of husband who totally isn't threatened when week after week his wife can easily think up some superhot hunky actor who she is totally in love with.

    Did I say "isn't?" Because I meant REALLY REALLY IS threatened.

    Here is that old post:

  8. Steven ~ I am not surprised you missed Moonlight. It was here and then gone. Whereas A to Z feels like it begins, ends, and then immediately begins again. What's up with that?

    Elsie ~ Good for you getting those posts done Now.

    Susan ~ I hope so. If the networks could throw their regret into cauldrons for the shows that they've cancelled too soon, it would be overflowing. Of course that pot is rivaled by the ones not cancelled soon enough... hmm.

    LC ~ I actually felt like I learned a lot from HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU. Mostly that he (as in the male population) is just not into me. But still. Progress.

    Sandra ~ He who plans finds the challenge much more bearable. He who partially plans comes out feeling wrung out but still intact. I can only assume that he who doesn't plan loses his mind.

    Briane P ~ I read your linked post and commented there. Your comments are so funny. As for "sure, buy that..." those are a wife's next three favorite words. You must be doing something right!
