Rom Coms

I don't know why, but lately I've seen a few share of Romantic Comedies.

It's not that I hate them, but I could be watching something different, you get me? But these films reach out to me. I feel somewhat affected by them, y'kno, I hate being a bit sensitive sometimes, but what can I do?

I used to avoid watching Rom Coms all the time. I recall a time when I was browsing the Milton Keynes Library with Maye and she'd always pick out a Rom Com. I'd usually object to this idea and we'd usually end up choosing an action movie of some sorts. One time, I remember having a conversation with Maye about this film called, "Sliding Doors". We went to the MK Library to rent it out, but it wasn't there, so Maye even insisted that we buy it from HMV. She did you know. Maye is a persistant person, well, she was when she was with me.

I watched Sliding Doors with her and I enjoyed it. At the time though, I just thought it was another movie to watch, but now that I am thinking about it, why didn't I appreciate that I was with Maye, watching this film she bought, just so we could watch it together?

I just finished watching, "Serendipity", starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. And it's about fate and it really got me thinking. One of the things Maye and I used to rely on, well sometimes, was the guidance of God to take us where we needed to go. I think God blessed us both. That's honest truth. Through Maye, I've learnt what love is.

I watched "While You Were Sleeping" last night and I just finished watching "Serendipity", now I want to continue this John Cusack phase and watch "High Fidelity" since I read the book. I heard the movie was good too, plus, it's got Jack Black! :)

If only I could have watched these films with her, it would have made so much more sense...
