Oh, Junkies! Love is in the air, or so I am told. Zrose25 and I decided that we would give you a two part Valentine’s Day gift. Part one, a list of our favorite romances from our personal collection selected within a five minute time limit. There were a lot we argued over (like my “freakish” love of Nic Cage) and a lot that we love but don’t own so don’t expect the same old romance movie list. Stay tuned for Part two, tomorrow.
