Secret Crushes -- posted by Sarah Grace

Watched the remake of Sabrina yesterday and I had forgotten how utterly romantic that movie is, and how much I prefer it over the original.  I could never understand why Sabrina was so taken with David over Linus, as even when I was young I was more attracted to Linus.  It seems I've always gone for the quiet, mature types in movies over the playful cads:  Woodrow Call over Gus in Lonesome Dove, Col. Brandon over Willoughby in Sense and Sensibility, etc..  The goofy types always seemed better suited for being guy friends, not love interests.  However, my brothers say I'm too fun for any of the quiet types.  They say if I met someone like that in real life, I would find them boring, so who knows.

Speaking of crushes, I had a secret crush on one of my chefs at class.  He was short, round, and a widower with five kids.  Does that make me crazy?

Julia Ormond as Sabrina is simply breathtaking.  I sooooo wanted to be her growing up.  We girls are silly, always wanting to look like or be what we aren't.  I also wanted to look like Jasmine from Aladdin.  I loved her thick, black mane pulled back in those three hair bands.  When I was little, I tried to copy that look by pulling back my baby fine, light blonde hair in three bands... 'cept it looked like a rat tail.
