Spring Fever

It is the magical time of year where the weather finally hits over the 50’s mark and we are good to sit outside. I know that here at Quinnipiac, our quad has looked more like a beach than a University these past few days.

Spring Fever just makes it harder to do anything productive, but being the laser pointer that I am I’ve been pounding the pavement all week. When my mind has had the wonderful opportunity to wander this week I’ve been thinking about happy spring things, for example babies, puppies, and the occasional wedding.

Wedding movies are almost always my favorite.I don’t want my actual wedding to be filled with any of their plot lines, but they are incredibly entertaining to watch. There is something about the “will they? won’t they?” mentality which is enjoyable when it isn’t you. I think there is a little bit of uncertainty in each of us. Each girl out there has this imagine of the person, or knows the person, they think is going to be their husband. When you have this ideal and the seemingly perfect guy comes along, things get well… tricky. You may still be in love with the new guy, but girl in the audience is rooting for the true love of her life.

That’s exactly how I felt the entire time I was watching Patrick Dempsey in Made Of Honor. In the beginning he was the guy I didn’t want to win, I have this thing were the underdog usually isn’t my favorite, but he redeemed himself and made me change my mind. It is a little strange that his best girl friend asks him to be her Maid of Honor. I really would never consider doing that in a million years. That’s why I have girl friends and guy friends. But, nevertheless it’s a fun premise. I used to have a guy friend that could’ve been my Maid of Honor, but I still would’ve chosen against it.

This was way before “McDreamy” met Owen on Grey’s anatomy, but at least on Grey’s they don’t fight for the same girl! Colin is a good-looking prince of sorts, but how can you not love the look in Dempsey’s eyes? It is all in the eyes boys! If you can look at a girl like she’s your world, you win. He does all the tasks, and puts up a pretty valiant fight. I’ll leave it up to you to watch it to find out if he wins the fight.

I say that loosely, there is so much more to do but that is a start. It is a really cute movie, it has its ups and downs for me. It’s a good movie to curl up in bed to on a rainy night like this. I’m pretty sure Scotland is a pretty rainy country, so it really fits into the night.

I’m going to curl up with a movie myself to relax, or figure out who my bridesmaids will be.

Love, Lindsey
