Tonight Daniel made tacos for dinner. For dessert, we made chocolate chip cookies. There is nothing better than a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie right out of the oven.
Then we watched The 40-Year-Old Virgin, which is one of my favorite comedies. Steve Carell is very convincing, with his numerous awkward moments with his co-workers, with sexual encounters, and with his girlfriend. Daniel doesn’t like the movie because it is so uncomfortable to watch, but that is precisely the reason I like it so much. Jay’s character (played by Romany Malco) is probably my favorite, with Paula (Jane Lynch of Glee) coming in a close second. Her interactions with Andy are strange but also feel oddly comforting to me. I also love the story she tells about her Guatemalan gardener, Javier.
If I ever need cheering up, this is the movie to which I turn. It never fails to bring a laugh, with the ridiculous dialogue and bizarre interactions between the characters. And of course, the infamous chest waxing scene, which is one of the all-time most hilarious scenes from a movie.
What movies do you watch if you need a laugh?
