Day 1 - Favorite movie

'The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character'.

Hi and Good morning

So, I need to do Day 1 and Day 2 for my 30 day challenge, as well as Day4. So here is my favorite movie.

Dirty Dancing. Yep, that's it. I first watched this movie when I was in my tweens and lets just say, my folks fast forwarded some bits, its was only when I got older that I actually realised they didn't need to do that. There was nothing That Bad lol. Anyways, one reason why this is my fav movie is because it was the first ever gift I ever won. See,.....a new video store was opening up in my neighborhood and for promotions they were giving out raffles for a free VHS ( yes darlings, that's how far back this story goes). So I won, and I was told I could pick any movie I wanted, I looked around the videos and came to a gorgeous picture of Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey and I was sold. Took it home and was hooked. I wore out that VHS!!!!!!!

I swear, I wanted to dance like that. Shoot, I still want to dance like that. And anytime, I see a man in a leather jacket and oldsmobile, I look twice. I wanted to marry Patrick. And when I got older, I wanted any man to teach me to dance like that over water, or catch me as I ran towards him. Ahhhhhhh old movies like this spoilt me and set me up for disappointment I tell ya........

This movie also gave me two soundtracks to the story of my life (I am sure everyone has one right, and I am not the only weird person?) anyways, the sound track to my life are songs that are in constant rotation depending on my mood and what I am going through, also if I want to remember something or a special person in my life I play a special song. Anyways, Dirty Dancing has given me two such songs

(I've had) the time of my life - Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes
Hungry eyes - Eric Carmen

There are many things I learnt from this movie, actually Abortion was the first thing. I don't think, I ever knew what it was till I watched this and asked my mom. Also standing up for someone and growing into women -hood, first love/crush and of-course disobeying the folks. Yep yep, I learnt a lot from Baby and Johnny!!!!!!!

Note; as soon as I figure out how to post a video, then I will put some up. So whats your favorite movie?

Blessings, Love and Leather Jackets
