I had to be at school by 8 as the ceremony started at 9. So I was up by like 6 something so I’d have enough time to get ready. Later that evening I was so tired; and my period had come, so needless to say I was hungry and wanted food, but wanted it now, and I really didn’t want to get up and do anything. So I turned to the only thing I could do:
So I looked around online and the only pizza place that delivered at a good price was Dominos. It was pretty easy and sweet. While I was filling out the form, this came to mind.
Now you see this stuff all over tumblr and pinterest about how people request certain things and the pizza places actually deliver.
Anyways, so I thought I would try it out and see what happens. So under special requests I told them
Tell me I’m pretty.
So then I sat back to wait. And I have to say the pizza trackers they have are awesome. They have a baseball one, romance novel, etc. The one I chose, [of course] was the heavy metal one.
It was awesome how it would be like
Yeah, your pizza is in the Oven-en-en!!
It was pretty sweet.
So the delivery guy who came was so sweet. He was so cute how awkward he was.
You could tell he was unsure about giving me the comment as he didn’t want to be awkward, but it was awkdorable.
I paid him and gave him a great tip so that he wouldn’t feel too awkward.
I then sat down and enjoyed my pizza. I decided that I’m totally going to do that again, and ask for them to do different things, but nothing too over the top or horrible.Haha now the real fun begins. 🙂
Mystic Pizza is a coming of age film that tells the story of three girls, and coworkers at Mystic Pizza, as they set off on different paths. Jojo is supposed to be married, but at her wedding gets cold feet. She wants to stay with her boyfriend, but is afraid to lose herself. Her boyfriend, Bill, is understanding but at the same time doesn’t want to be strung around. He doesn’t just want sex, he wants more, he wants marriage. Beautuful Daisy, is always reckless and the life of the party. She clashes with her mother as she isn’t as sensible as her sister Kat. She gets involved with a rich guy, which her mom tells her won’t last. After he uses her to get back at his family, she breaks off the relationship. Kat was accepted to Yale and is eager to go and study astronomy. Although she is getting a scholarship, she is worried about finances and takes on a second job as a baby-sitter. The wife is out of town and the father starts giving Kat the attention she has never recieved, having been in the shadow of her sister. Kat eagerly spends a night with him only to have his wife return and him treat their “time together” as a buisness transaction, trying to pay her off to not say anything. In the end, Jojo and Bill get married; the only thing changing about her is her name. Daisy’s ex, Charles (the rich boy), listened to what she said about him and comes back to not only apologize but prove to her he’s changed and tries to win her heart back. Kat rejects the dad’s check and forms a better relationship with her sister. Leona, the owner of Mystic Pizza, gives her extra money as she is one of “her girls”.
Most Romantic Moment:
So the girls are going out to have a girl’s night. Kat has the night off, Jo is on the outs with Bill, and Charles has to visit his grandma. The girls get drunk (heavily, except Kat) and steal Bill’s truck that full of fish and fish guts. They decide to drive out to the country club as they like to watch the people dance. When they get there they are having fun, that is until they spot Charlie talking and dancing to a blond girl. It is clear to all that they know each other very well.
Uh. Oh not good, at all. Daisy gets so upset that she goes ballistic!
She gets in Bill’s truck and dumps all the fish and fish guts in Charlies new red porsche. (Best payback for a cheater ever)
Imagine this full of fish guts! Yuck!
Now I know you are all probably thinking, what’s romantic about this? This guy is a total skeez for cheating on her. Now just wait, I’m getting there.
So Charlie comes out and sees her doing this and freaks. I mean who wouldn’t? I know I’d be royally pissed! Now Daisy is yelling and cussing him out for lying and cheating on her.
Then Charlie tells her he didn’t lie. He was going to his Grandma’s, but she went out of town. He called her house but she was out and her mom had no idea where she was or when she would be back. So he decided to take his little sister out.
That’s right. His sister.
So Daisy feels super stupid. And you know what Charles does next? I’ll tell you, and let me say it is pretty romantic.
“Daisy: I f***** up.
Charles Gordon Windsor, Jr.: Yeah… but you gave it a 100% effort!”
That’s right ladies and gentlemen, instead of being mad, yelling, screaming, or even lording over Daisy that she was wrong and did something stupid (a reaction that would have been understandable) he tries to make her feel better. His car has fish and fish guts everywhere, which you know will be an absolute PAIN to get clean and it will take forever to get rid of the smell, all he cares about in that moment is making Daisy feel better and make sure she knows that everything is ok. Now you might not agree with me, but I think that is a prime-A sighworthy moment.
I mean you know how guys get about their cars. Cars are like an extension of themselves, it’s their personal/sacred space. It is their provate domain, their man cave on wheels. And this wasn’t a trashy car, this was a new porsche convertible. And to not say anything, wow this guy is great. I mean its true he does have a few kinks to workout, he is a fixer-upper (who isn’t?), but he’s worth having.
Here’s the scene for you guys. It’s great!
“Daisy: [After Charles tries to make her feel better] You’re weird
Charles Gordon Windsor, Jr.: I’m weird? [Looks at car, then at Daisy] I’m weird? [takes Daisy’s hand]
So many of you might find the moment that I choose in this as strange, as there are other more standard romantic scenes, but this one is my favorite.
Ike Graham, (Richard Gere), has written on article on Maggie Carpenter, (Julia Roberts), a “maneater” who has jilted grooms at the altar 6-7 times for the sheer fun of it.
Unfortunately, he got his facts wrong and is out of a job. To redeem his name, he has gone to her hometown to find out the facts; hoping that Maggie will run on fiancé #4.
At first he dislikes Maggie as he is a divorced, bitter, disillusioned about love, and an “unromantic” guy. (Sounds like him and Robert Phillips would be pals). But over time, he starts to develop feelings for her.
Will Maggie continue to run? Or will she finally walk down the aisle?
My favorite romantic moment comes about halfway through the film. Maggie decides that since Ike is going to be following her around anyways asking all kinds of questions, she might as well get some money out of it. She charges him to interview her which Ike agrees to. Maggie is thrilled as it gives her the chance to buy the dress she really wants, but was out of her budget as it is $1000.
However when she gets there, the dress shop owner, Mrs. Whittenmeyer, doesn’t want to sell it.
“Maggie Carpenter: I’ve changed my mind Mrs. Whittenmeyer: This [dress] is a thousand dollars. Maggie Carpenter: And I have a thousand dollars. Mrs. Whittenmeyer: The other one is only three hundred, dear. Maggie Carpenter: Um…is that dress for sale? Mrs. Whittenmeyer: It’s just a lot of money to spend on one of your dresses, Maggie. After all, you only wear them for about ten minutes or so.“
Maggie s heartbroken, realizing that no one believes that she will ever go through with a wedding.
But here’s where the romantic part comes in. Ike becomes furious at Mrs. Whittenmeyer being so cruel:
Ike is not having Maggie be treated this way. He takes the situation into his own hands.
“Ike Graham: [Mrs. Whittenmeyer refuses to sell a wedding gown to Maggie] You sell wedding dresses, right? Mrs. Whittenmeyer: Yes, I’ve been selling wedding gowns for thirty-five years. Ike Graham: Wonderful! Because we are here to buy one! But not just any one [points to a gown in the window] She wants “that” one! Mrs. Whittenmeyer: It’s a thousand dollars! Ike Graham: Listen, Aunt Bea! Conversation has never worked for me, let’s try ‘visual.’ [jumps into the window and pulls the mannequin down, knocking its wig off] We’re buying the dress! And anything else she wants!”
As there are no pictures or videos of this scene, that I adore so much, I had to take screenshots of the scene and make my own gif. I’m a little rusty, so I apologize for its crudity.
The reason I love this part is not only the take charge attitude Ike has, but this is where I believe Ike starts to really care for Maggie. He realizes how harsh his words were, and how his article is affecting her. He also starts to see that there is more to her than a “maneater”.
