Favorite love story

As I've mentioned before, I love the book Pride and Prejudice. I love the relationship between Darcy and Lizzie. Mainly, I can relate to making snap judgments about someone I just met. When I want to escape in a romantic story I dive into the book or if I need a quicker fix, I watch one of the movies. I can especially relate to Jane and how she is shy and doesn't make her feelings with Bingley.  I am very shy and find it hard to show interest in a man.

Boy-crazy since 1993

I first noticed boys when I was in the first grade. I would think about the boys in my class and rank them in order of who I wanted to marry (tied for first were Mike and Dave). The ranking was based on how nice he was and how cute he was. When I was in 4th grade I sent my first love letter to a boy in my class (though granted since I was nine it was more of a like letter). As I write this I realize how incredibly young I was when I first started noticing boys.

30 Rock Love Life

For my first post, I feel it only fair to warn you that my love life would be most similar to Liz Lemon's. That is to say, don't expect me to talk about my fabulous husband, astronaut Mike Dexter. Here is a list of five things that I have in common (love wise) with Liz Lemon. (Warning a familiarity with the show 30 Rock is needed to get these references)
-The word "lovers" bums me out unless it's between the words "meat" and "pizza"

-I prefer to celebrate Anna Howard Shaw Day over Valentine's Day

-If given the choice between relinquishing my favorite sandwich to TSA and telling my boyfriend I love him right before he got on a plane, I would first eat the sandwich while exclaiming "I can have it al!"

-I had a minor fling w/ Conan O'Brien back in the day (just kidding, would never, he's a ginger)

-Instead of offering to buy me a drink I'd rather a guy offer to buy me mozzarella sticks
