My name is Sizzle and I have a confession. . .
I have never guest blogged before. My blog brother Kevin has totally initiated me into some cool club. Isn't that what big brothers are for though? (Thanks Kev! We miss you! Hope you are having fun in Vegas!)
This is a nice change of scenery, honestly, because if you aren't a regular reader of Sizzle Says then you are clueless to the fact that I have been monumentally obsessed with my own neurosis- more so than usual lately and THAT is saying something- and frankly, let's just pretend I didn't mention that and carry on, shall we? Let's just believe that I am a totally together chick with cool hair. Sweet.
Over the weekend I watched When Harry Met Sally for the 1,098th time and also caught part of Say Anything. I found myself getting all sappy over the scene where Harry runs to the New Year's Eve party to tell Sally that he loves her ("because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible") and that scene where Diane is restlessly tossing and turning on the bed when she hears Lloyd playing "In Your Eyes" on the boom box, his arms outstretched, his heart on his sleeve ("in your eyes, the light the heat, in your eyes I am complete...").
I started to wonder what film character I would most want to woo me. Am I a Lloyd Dobler kind of girl or a Harry Burns babe? Or maybe I'd like a throw back to the days of Rhett Butler or Rick Blaine? It's no secret that I'm a sucker for a fella in a hat who knows how to handle a dame.
I think my choice might change with my mood but today I'm casting my woo vote for Westley in The Princess Bride. I could definitely be wooed by a man who can best a giant, navigate us safely through the fire swamp, put fear into the evil Prince Humperdinck and who always dashingly comes to my rescue. "Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while."
Tell me, who would be your woo-er of choice ladies? And for the gents in the audience, what leading leading lady would get your attention?
