Five Rom Coms to Watch This Weekend

DSC_0122
Yes, some of these are different to the ones in the list…consider them a bonus! ๐Ÿ™‚ (and not the fact that when my sister moved out she took some of my favourites with her)
Pitch Perfect
Australia is proud to be represented by Fat Amy.
The Other Woman

Spit-your-drink-out-funny. Maybe not technically a rom com, it’s more about the women’s friendships and their hilarious revenge on Kate’s cheating husband. But the scene with the laxatives in his drink is one of my all-time favourites.

When In Rome

So it’s no high-brow work of art, but I just loved seeing the usually smooth Josh Duhamel be a klutz.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Maybe not technically a rom com, but it’s both romantic and funny, as well as ridiculously stylish. How long did Henry Cavill have to practice that voice to make it so smooth?
Two Weeks’ Notice
My favourite Hugh Grant movie. Cute. Funny. Awkward as ever.

What will you be watching this week?

Wanted: your ridiculous/funny/embarrassing stories

couple_silhouette

Gathering inspiration for book #2: do you have any anecdotes about ridiculous newlywed fights? ๐Ÿ™‚

As a single gal myself, I plan to put my imagination to good use, but it would be awesome to be able to draw inspiration from some real-life couples.

I’m totally willing to offer my own anecdote in exchange, but fair warning, most of mine revolve around:
1. Gross-out farm stories
2. Funny stuff from my journo days
3. My weird brothers. (Love you boys!)

So share your stories, your friends’ stories, that-weird-lady-from-down-the-street’s stories!
