I really like the movie Forrest Gump. I really don't know why but there is something in it that makes it really interesting. That is probably because of a great storyline they used to capture the audience. Imagine being able to work across the different presidents we had our way and that is just really interesting.

That is probably another reason why I love Bubba Gump, aside fro the good food.

Another “oldie but goodie”

Gabriel García Márquez’s book Love in the Time of Cholera
(English translation published 1988) was adapted into a movie in 2007, starring one of my favorite actors, Javier Bardem. García Márquez is a favorite author of my Bro (my better half) and mine.
His writing style falls into my favorite genre: magical realism.

The first time I watched this movie, I paired it with a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc, one of my favorite white wines just before
I gave up boozin. Oh, the memories! I will recommend the moderately priced yet high in flavor and pedigree variety by Lapostolle Casa, a winery founded in 1994 by the great-granddaughter of the creator of Grand Marnier, Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle. I recently watched it again, so I have a couple questions, a couple quotes, and a comment to share:

¿How long does one wait for true love? ¿Seventy years like Florentino Ariza?
The only thing he could do to stay alive was not to allow himself the anguish of that memory. He erased it from his mind, although from time to time in the years that were left to him he would feel it revive, with no warning and for no reason, like the sudden pang of an old scar.

This soup tastes like windows

One more thing, I read in this month’s Cosmo (p.154) that guys like to eggzagerate their “number.” Some even triple it. They think it makes it more likely women will want them. I disagree. Any other ladies care to back me up? BTW, that Jack Bauer thing really pissed me off.
