Day 723

Enough of this lunar bullshit.  We've done enough star gazing for one week.  Let's go to the movies ...

I went for my annual trip to the chick flicks last night with a few friends to see Crazy Stupid Love with Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Marissa Tomei, Kevin Bacon, Emma Stone.  It was one of those Girls Night In to raise money for breast cancer.  Only it wasn't exactly a Girls Night In because we went to one of those big fancy Dendy theatres in the city and got to eat choc tops and we got a bag of free stuff like make-up and vouchers and other little bits and bobs in a sponsors bag.  It was a good night and a great movie.

It was hysterical! It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me smile, it made me wince, I felt embarrassed, I felt relieved, I felt sad, I felt happy, I was proud, I was annoyed.  It pretty much ticked all the boxes of a great chick flick.

My new crush is Ryan Gosling.  When he took off his shirt I was like "That's it!!!"  All my other 'freebies' went straight out the window and have now been replaced by the lovely Ryan.

The story line follows Steve Carell's character as he faces divorce from his childhood sweetheart. We watch him go through a bit of a make over and resulting confidence boost including a few flings, but of course his heart is still with his wife.  It's one of those movies where we follow a few different characters - the husband, the wife, her lover, the kids, the babysitter, the teacher, the lawyer, the "image consultant" - having no clue as to the links until towards the end when it all comes together in one hilarious twist.

If you get a chance to see it I highly recommend it!

Happy Thursday y'all!!

Now let's take some time to stop and stare at Ryan .....
