Is it sad that a thirty-something year old woman has a school girl crush on a movie star? The last time I was crushing on someone like this was when I was in my twenties, watching Dawson’s Creek. My girl friend and I would watch Dawson’s Creek religiously. We’d meet up at her condo, pop some popcorn, and laugh, cry, and get mad at the whole Joey and Dawson thing. I always wanted Joey and Dawson to end up together. To this day, we joke about how funny it was that women in their twenties would love a show about a bunch of high school kids. Then again, I love the original 90210, Degrassi Junior High, and Glee!
While at a girls’ night with some friends on the weekend, one of our friends said, “Have you guys seen those Ryan Gosling ‘Hey girl’ posts? They’re hilarious!”
None of us had seen them before, so we whipped out the iPhone and BlackBerry to Google the pics.
Some of my favourites:
A night of the girls getting together (our once a month break from work, house, kids, and other responsibilities), turned into a night of full on Zumba workout on Kinect and lots of laughter. You know that this is our only time to fully relax and decompress.
I joked about how I could really use a pedi since my feet are horrible even though I had them prepped to be beach ready last month! Dry skin, nail polish needing to be redone. Okay, I also confessed that my husband told me that I’ve got talons when my foot touched him in bed the other night. Totally not sexy! I agree, manis and pedis are a good thing. I also agree that I shouldn’t use the “I’m soooooooo busy” excuse and just get it done. This said, if you live in the countryside and people see a beautifully manicured hand or pretty polished toe nails, they think you don’t do any house work or work in the garden.
Anyway, the girls and I came up with an idea. Since we all said we were all in dire need of a mani and pedi, we decided to have a little friendly contest between us. We’d all make our own Ryan Gosling “Hey girl” pic and the person with the best one would get a free mani/pedi! There are three of us taking part in this friendly contest, so the two who don’t win will split the cost of the winner’s manicure and pedicure.
To be fair, we will not disclose the names of the contestants. Please leave a comment here and tell us which one you think is the best!
