for carl!

I'm not one to judge, but like loads of bloggers I've silently watched carlang deny his feelings for his besty stolic(not one to judge,so maybe he feels nothing...ahem)
This scene from the movie chasing amy, where holden mcneil was driving with his best friend alyssa jones and then stopped the car to declare his love for her. Its a moving speech he gave. And I think you should try it carlang. Assuming you've got feelings for her that is.

Holden mcneil(carl): I love you. And not in a friendly way, although I think we're great friends, and not in a misplaced affection, puppy dog way, although I'm sure that's what you'll call it. I love you. Very, very simple, very truly. You are the epitome of everything I have ever looked for in another human being. And I know that you think of me as just a friend, and crossing that line is the furtherest thing fron an option you would ever consider. But I had to say it. I just can't take it anymore.

I can't stand next to you without wanting to hold you, I can't. I can't look into your eyes without feeling that, that longing you only read about in thrashy romance novels. I can't talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are.
And I know this will probably queer our friendship- no pun intended- but I had to say it, because I've never felt this way before and I don't care.

I like who I am because of it. And if bringing this to light means we can't hang out anymore then that hurts me *insert*(fantasy queen is ready to be my new bestfriend though so it wouldn't really matter).
But God, I just, I couldn't allow another day to go by without just getting it out there, regardless of the outcome, which by the look on your face is to be the inevitable shootdown.
And you know I'll accept that. But I know, I know some part of you is hesistating for a moment, and if there is a moment of hesistation, then that means you feel something too.all I ask, please is that you just, you just not dimiss that- and try to dwell in it for just ten seconds.

Alyssa(stolic) there isn't another soul on this fucking planet who has ever made me feel half the person I am when I'm with you, and I would risk this friendship for the chance to take it to the next plateau. Because it is there between you and me. You can't dey that. Even if, you know, even if we never talk again after tonight,please know that I'm forever changed because of who you are and what you've meant to me.
******************
Now that's some powerful speech, I fell for it and was nodding yes before i snapped back to reality and realised I was on my couch and no one was talking to me.

But I can't help thinking, what's the next level he wants to move to with her? Is it sex? Is that what he's thinking? And is that what'll make their already great friendship perfect?

So carl, the ball is in your court. And be sure to vidcam this it when you do, I'm sure it'd be an oscar worthy performance. Lol

  14. Carl has to feel so so so.... to take his liver in his hands and make that speech.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I can already picture Stolich bursting into laughter at the speech...lmao...


    well it would take a while for her to get he wasn't playing his usual pranks...

    ReplyDelete
  16. @ Carl; assuming you read this.
    - please do not give this speech not even as a joke. With everything we have come to know about Stolich (albeit only through you) you will NEVER live this down.

    @FQ
    - nice plan. Men you are one smart woman.
    - so Carl gives Stolich this speech, she laughs him off the face of the planet, you put on your Wonder Woman suit and save him.
    - Carl looks longingly into your eyes, wonders why he never noted their depths and falls completely for his saviour.
    Stolich 0 - FQ 1
    end of match.

  28. The Blossom

    (1)

    Merry, merry sparrow!

    Under leaves so green,

    A happy blossom

    Sees you, swift as arrow,

    Seek your cradle narrow

    Near my bosom.

    (2)

    Pretty, pretty robin!

    Under leaves so green,

    A happy blossom

    Hears you sobbing, sobbing,

    Pretty, pretty, robin,

    Near my bosom.
