when life goes bleh: Part II

   when life goes bleh, you read soppy romantic novels a.k.a a Nicholas Sparks' piece, and watch soppy romantic movies a.k.a a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks' piece.
   my pick today was The Notebook (for the zillionth time).
 i read it AND watched the movie (corniness much?) but anyway, they had the desired effect: reduced to me to a sniffly, puffy-eyed, in-love-with-love-but-oh-so-lonely-girl (well, actually i am that most of the time, minus the sniffling and puffiness of eyes).
   here are the bits that got to me the most:

i can relate to bits of this. oh hell, i can relate to all of it (mind you, on a normal day i wouldn't admit this). but here's something i can relate to even more:
"They didn't agree on much, in fact, they rarely agreed on anything, 
They fought all the time and they challenged each other everyday,
But she loved him anyway."
haha, how depressing.
could you possibly refuse an offer from a man like him?
 i've danced in the middle of a deserted street. even better: i've danced in the middle of a deserted street in the rain. but not with... ah.
which is why i need peace, calm and most of all - someone to share them with.
that doesn't sound so bad.
the picture-perfect happy couple.

i don't know why, but these parts were just so cute!
the bird one reminds me of the few special people who play along when i say stupid things like that.
7 years after the breakup, when they meet again:
Allie finally makes her choice.
they never desert each other,
...unto eternity.

now we turn to the book:
 don't we all someone who says:
"I have a crush on your mind, I fell for your personality, and your looks are just a big bonus."
 face it:
"It may seem like the hardest thing to do, but you have to forget the guy who forgot about you."

"You can't live your life for other people. 
You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love."
and this one's my all-time favourite:
"Dusk, I realized then, is just an illusion, because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means day and night are linked in a way that few things are; there cannot be one without another, yet they cannot exist at the same time. How does it feel to be always together, yet forever apart?"
thank you, Nicholas Sparks.
