Green Gables...

So, it was all cold and blizzardy this Saturday and I took the opportunity to resurrect my favorite sit-around-in-jammies-all-day movie...the Anne of Green Gables movies! hehe. Actually, I just watched "Anne of Avonlea". But anyways, it brought back such lovely memories of childhood and rainy days and sitting around wishing I would have Anne's life and wishing that Gilbert Blythe would show up. lol.

This is so hopelessly uncool it should probably go in the Confessionals.

Anyone else out there as uncool as me and want to reminisce?

Well, i have no idea what the Anne of Green Gable movies are about, and i don't have a clue what Anne of Avonlea is about.

So - i really can't say anything, much less say it's uncool. Feel better now?

- be uncool, yes be awkward

Sula I know what you're talking about. Every once in awhile our local PBS station will run the series. I love to see Anne grow up from on the farm until she excepts the teachig job and you see her grow up to be a fine young woman.

Sula,

My family too enjoys the books and movies very much. In fact, sooo much, that we vacationed at PEI a couple of years ago along with a tour of Nova Scotia.

The kids loved it, but my wife loved it more.

We watched them during the pledge drive last weekend too. My wife laughed and cried. They do that to her.

Sulababe,
Lets have an Anne party. I adore the movies and have been in love with Gilbert(that Gilbert) since I was about 9.
One of the main reasons I want to go to Canada is so I can see Prince Edward Island!
I wish I had a Gilbert to pull my hair.

p.s. Have u seen the new one? Part 3 when Anne and Gilbert are grown up?
It was just on tv here, I was very excited to see it but hmm well it just lost something along the way I think. I still loved seeing gorgeous Gilbert, so it was good!

Thanks zooropamanda for letting us know that there is a part 3 of Anne. I 'll be on the outlook for it.

*ah Gilbert*

The third part isn't so good. I wish they would have stuck with the book more...but the first movie is adorable. My little sister and I watch it ALL the time. I can't stand when Matthew dies...it's soooo incredibly sad.

"Oh Marilla! Look at the puffs!"

Gilbert Blythe went to your high school? lol

I liked the part where Anne accidentally gave Diana Barry raspberry cordial, and then drunken Diana retruned home and she was forbidden to associate with Anne...and Diana gave her a lock of her hair to remember her by....lolol

Also, the woman who played that bitchy school headmaster in Anne of Avonlea did a very good job...
