Random Quote from: Ally McBeal

Alright, I know I’m about 15 years behind on the whole Ally McBeal thing, but I must say… she’s amazing. And I’m addicted.

Ally is a complete freak! She’s funny and awkward and neurotic and psychoanalyzes every minute Freudian slip. She gets caught up in the moment and she changes her mind on a dime.

“She” is me.

Anyway, there’s this one character, John Cage–nickname Biscuit–who is a senior partner at Ally’s firm and has some interesting tactics. He’s a character, to put it nicely 🙂 But he’s also a genius. Anyway, I really liked one of his quotes. I’m a sucker for romance and it was just… hopeful, I guess.

“The world is no longer a romantic place.

But some of its people still are, however.

And therein lies the promise…

Don’t let the world win.”

Random Thought to Ponder: Are Guys Romantic?

Part of me is hesitant to even say this aloud (or written. same same). To be honest, I’m more curious than accusatory. And, boys, I don’t mean to offend, but…

Consider for a moment the lyrics in the following songs:

  • The Luckiest- Ben Folds
  • Can’t Take My Eyes off You- Lady Antebellum
  • Amazed- Lonestar
  • Wedding Dress- Matt Nathanson

There are more, but those 4 in particular have been running through my head all day.

All (predominantly) male artists, right? And all heart-wrenching-ly romantic songs. I guess I’m just wondering if guys really think that way. Or do they just have really good lyricists well-versed in the female psyche?
