Chick On Aisle 12




...because if you don't, you'll wake up one day when you're 59 years-old and God forbid wonder, "What if I had...?".

Maybe it's me, but this random poster found on an American street corner personifies everything about us Gen-X'ers, in one fell swoop, don't you agree?

Yesterday, a guy would've settled down with the first girl he pinned at the Senior Prom. Today, it's gotta be kismet or else you're staying single and living at home until you're 37...whilst working in the cereal aisle at WholeFoods.

  • It's certainly no longer An Affair to Remember ...

  • It's certainly no longer An Affair to Remember ...

    Don't kill me, but I've actually never watched that...

    I know I know. Where do I hand in my chick-flick credentials?

    P.S.: Love your new avatar pic! Cleavage is always good (see Nigella look-a-like).

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • Even worse, there are two versions of Affair to Remember, one from the 30s and the Cary Grant one from the 50s, both done by Leo McCarey, the 30's one being called Love Affair. McCarey liked the 30's one better, but how can you deny Cary Grant?

  • As long as Warren Beatty's not in it.

  • Yes, JSU is right. I forget that one...fortunately! Last screen appearance of Katherine Hepburn, though...

  • Is that the movie where he met Annette Benning, and she had a line that went a little like this:

    "Put that in your soda, and jerk it."

    I remember thinking to myself, great -- my generation's "You know how to whistle, don't you? You put your lips together and blow."

    God I hate Beatty.

  • P.S.: Never seen any version -- so which should I start with??

  • Do you prefer (somewhat) understated, or Technicolor weeping?

    Both Irene Dunne and Deborah Kerr are faves, ditto Charles Boyer and Cary Grant. The liveliness of the pair shifts a bit towards the man in the later one.

    I imprinted on the remake (and if you're going for sentiment, why not full bore?), but if you're going to watch them both, you might go chronologically. Skip #3.

  • But the typo..."isle" for "aisle." A piece of land entirely surrounded by water.. doesn't that add to his mystique?


    Ah. Maybe it's just a mistake.

  • Corny Meg Ryan films -- Sleepless in Seattle & When Harry Met Sally ...

    If i were a cheesecake, I'd want Nigella to knead me! LOL ... she is a very wholesome looking woman with a sincere beauty to her ... healthy is beautiful! I'm flattered. Thanks.

  • Do you prefer (somewhat) understated, or Technicolor weeping?

    I dislike weepies, ever since I lived through a torrential session in a London cinemahouse, after watching The Joy Luck Club.

    But then...chick flicks shouldn't be understated. EVER.

    Both Irene Dunne and Deborah Kerr are faves, ditto Charles Boyer and Cary Grant. The liveliness of the pair shifts a bit towards the man in the later one.

    Oh wait, wait...I HATE Charles Boyer (he's seriously distracting as an actor -- vide Gaslight) so I think we have an answer.

    I imprinted on the remake (and if you're going for sentiment, why not full bore?), but if you're going to watch them both, you might go chronologically. Skip #3.

    Good! I will try to look that up, and let you guys know. :)

    Cheers,

  • Corny Meg Ryan films -- Sleepless in Seattle & When Harry Met Sally ...

    Confession Time:

    Loved both. A lot.

    Heard in real life, Meg's full of herself, and of course, she's even more caricaturish as an actress than even the monoimpressionistic Diane Keaton -- but she does a wonderful whitebread Americana personage, and both films revolve around that.

    If i were a cheesecake, I'd want Nigella to knead me! LOL ...

    LOL!!

    she is a very wholesome looking woman with a sincere beauty to her ... healthy is beautiful!

    Wow, what is it about Nigella that she is universally liked.

    Especially by women! And no, it's not because she's not threatening.

    With those looks, that background, and her more recent good fortunes, she's prime material for cattiness, but I've yet to hear one word said against her.

    I'm flattered. Thanks.

    Knead it, Manola! ;)

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • But the typo..."isle" for "aisle."

    Would you look at that? I've read that photo several times, and I never noticed that typo...

    A piece of land entirely surrounded by water.. doesn't that add to his mystique?

    Heh. Certainly does, now that you mention it.

    Ah. Maybe it's just a mistake.

    Don't start getting all logical, Ruth Anne. Let's continue to imbue the lad with a romantical aura.

    Cheers,
