So, the Titanic 3D trailer should not have made me as emotional as it did. But, gah, I can't help it. When it first came out, I saw it in theaters something like seven times. Do you know long that movie is? It's more than three hours. Three hours times seven: that's over twenty-one hours. Every day in the world, 490,000 babies are born. The amount of time I spent in the theater watching Titanic is roughly equivalent to the amount of time it took 490,000 people to enter the world. Ri-freakin'-diculous.

My goodness, I can't wait until this week is over. I'll be going home over the Thanksgiving holiday. We've got Wednesday off from school, so I will leave Tuesday afternoon right after class. I'm swinging 'round Tim's place on my way back through town on Sunday. We're doing Thanksgiving with our respective families this year. In December he'll spend the weekend before Christmas up in Fort Wayne with my family, and then I'll join him and his family in Indianapolis for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

...It feels really grown up to say that. I've never spent real Christmas away from my family before. And I don't think I would consider doing that for anyone but Tim.

On episode 1x03 of Fringe and it's started to get weird. I mean. Comparatively speaking. :\

I didn't know that trailer was out! I'll be joining you on this emotional ride in a few moments.

So happy for your holiday plans. :) But you knew that.

Funny bestie fact #834 - I've seen Titanic in theaters the same amount of times as you. Funny, right? :D

That trailer gave my feelings feelings and my goosebumps even more goosebumps! Whoever that editor was has my praise and awe forever because ohmigod.

Nothing too big! My birthday falls on Thanksgiving, but you knew that. :D My sister will be home, and we're planning dinner and things like that. I'm looking forward to a nice, looooong weekend!

It has! It hasn't happened in awhile, but it has before. :D I kind of like it! Makes everything feel that much more festive. :)

Well, I am certainly very thankful for you, I don't care what day of the year it is.

Aww, bestie. You made my heart all warm and fluttery. <3

I feel the same about you!

Oh, holy hell. I'll be over here covered in goosebumps. I can hate on that movie all I want but at the end of the day, it's TITANIC, for God's sake. It's a legendary film. And AHHHHH LEO!

Oh god, I know. I walk around all high and mighty most of the time, panning the film as a gross overreach of moviemaking palaver. But at the end of the day I still cry every time that Celine Dion song comes on.

Dude. I didn't even know I could cry that hard, and then I rewatched it last month, and that moment with the two widdle babies in the steerage cabin getting lulled to sleep by the Mom so they're asleep WHEN THEY DIE? Oh my GOD. WEEPING.

It's on E!, like, compulsively. Every time I'm at the gym I end up catching it at different points in the story and I am secretly glad that working out makes me all red and flushed, because otherwise people would know that I am experiencing big tracts of emotion when the BAND GOES DOWN WITH THE SHIP.

I am totally going to see this when it comes back to theaters.

Oh man, I can't watch it at the gym. I would be actually bawling and yelling at the screen 'You DID let go of his hand, YOU HORRIBLE WOMAN' . But that's just me.

I'll probably drag Andrew to see it with me, although...maybe he's better off not seeing that side of me just yet. The one that yells and cries at images on the flicker box.

I watched it four and a half times in the theater, the half was when the film had an issue and I own the soundtrack. That movie was part of high school for me and one of the reasons Kate Winslet is one of my favorite actresses.

Good God, I am going to BAWL LIKE CRAZY watching this, just like I did the first time I saw it. I've been a Titanic nut since I was twelve and Cameron just kicked me in the gut with so many things (the passenger telling his daughter to "hold Mummy's hand and be a good girl"? That was the last thing one of the survivors ever heard from her father. AUGH).

...And then I *was* thinking of going to Halifax in April...

Oh, Titanic. I saw it a couple of times in theatres, and my parents got me the duel VHS (LOL;) tapes for my birthday that year. I would sit there and watch it over and over again, and cry and cry. As much as I loathe aspects of it (HISTORIAL INACCURACY, YOU LET HIM GO YOU BITCH, CELINE DION), it's one of those movies that I will always, always love, even it I can't admit it to myself half of the time.

Speaking of the Titanic, I think there's some big things going on here during the anniversary - what with our ties to the ship and all. I just remembered this ... so now I'm all sorts of excited!
