Great Love

My mind was done, just done the other night and the best medicine for my mushy brain was a good laugh. And so, I decided that I wanted to watch Nemo, but that didn't work out for technical difficulties, and then I thought, well, I'll watch Sahara, the side-kick in that movie is hilarious, but then my eye caught "Win a Date with Tad Hamilton." No, I thought. I couldn't possibly. But then I remembered, yeah, Topher Grace is a hilarious actor, just his mannerisms crack me up because they are most akin to an old friend by the name of Jared Houston who has the same awkward, hilarious style (miss that guy). So second only to flying Jared himself to my living room for a personal stand-up show, I popped it in.

I laughed. I cried! It was so good. Not as in "Blood Diamond" good or "Anne of Green Gables" good, but as in Topher Grace, in-need-of-something-highschool-ish good. And here was the best-est line of the movie:

Bartender: "Was it love, big love, or great love?"

TG: "what's the difference?"

Bartender: Love you get over in two months. Big love, two years, but Great love...well, great love changes your life."

???!?!?!?!?!?

Come on. that's amazingly profound, or at least it was to my fried mind, late on a friday night as I craddled my glass of Pinot Grigio and subconsciously had the stress of papers hanging over my head.

Here's some recent love that I witnessed: Which one is it Louie? (is this not the sexiest f0t0 you ever saw? Tanner....you're amazing).

So in my life, it is o for three my friend. Let it be known that I don't think that anything short of the latter is worth it, this I know, and this I shall henceforth abide by. The only love in my life that is even remotely related to this discussion is the Great Love of the Good Lord, and that, appropriately, hits it out of the ball park entirely.
