RTW: Anything For Love

This week’s question: What’s the craziest thing you’ve done for love, or what’s your favorite book/movie moment of someone doing crazy things for love? 

As it turns out, I’m not a very crazy romantic person. Ask my husband. I think the most romantic this I did last year was surprise him with FIFA 2012. (In my defense, it was a Big Deal, – he is British and all – and i’m pretty sure he’s more in love with the game than me.)

He’s way sweeter.

So let’s go with my favorite movie moment. It’s not so much a moment, but a culmination of events. I love the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I love how Joel goes from wanting his memories erased, to wanting to keep them forever. I love that, for love, he mentally fights a mental procedure. How great is that?

But mostly, I love the ending. Because Joel and Clementine have seen what happens when they date. It doesn’t go well. They try to erase one another.

And yet. They try again.
