Five Titanic-ally Embarrassing things about myself

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic which prompted me to admit a few embarrassing things about myself that in the past I would never have admitted in a hundred years.  Before I do though, I would like to say a prayer for the 1500 souls who lost their lives on the Titanic.

1.     I love the movie “Titanic.”  When channel surfing if I happen to pass by a station that is showing the movie, I stop and I watch for the umpteenth thousandth time. Of course I cry every time, but everybody needs to have a good cry now and then don't you think? And yes I plunked down a overpriced amount of hard earned cash to see it in 3-D.  

2.     When I watched the movie I fell in love with Leonardo De Caprio.  I’m over it now.  All I had to do was watch J Edgar and I was cured.

3.     I am jealous of Kate Winslet.  No, it’s not because of Jack.  The reason is simple.  She is just so gosh darned China Doll gorgeous, and I knew that before she played Rose.

4.     I actually like the song in the movie by Celine Dion.

5.     I am scared to death of the water and drowning and the irony of this is that my husband loves the water.  He is practically a fish and he dreamed of being an oceanographer when he was in High School.  As for me, I don’t like getting in water where slimy things like sharks may live.  Guess I’ve watched way too many movies.  Yes, I can swim--well maybe I can swim. I haven’t checked it out of late.  Is it like riding a bicycle where you never forget???

P.S.  To my Greek friends and family today is Greek Easter so from me to you-- Christos Anesti!  :-)

I understand your fear of water, I have a good friend who dislikes the water so muc she sits with her back to the lake when visiting us for coffee, she loves the beauty of it but thats it.
Now go watch the Titanic again, its on this weekend, lol, all over the place!!!

I saw titanic and it was so depressing i can't bring myself to watch it again! Those two old people just holding each other while the ship sinks get to me!
I like to swim and the water IN A POOL! I agree, with weird slimy things all around my body I am not happy!!
Thanks for sharing this Crystal!!!

I've seen it several times, and love it. One of my favorites too.

Enjoyed your confessions...Good for the soul, haha.

I love the water, I'm not the best swimmer in the world, but still enjoy a good swin, and love being on a boat, especially a sail boat.

Happy Greek Easter!
I almost drown in a lake in the weeds when I was a kid so I have a fear of weedy water.
Have a great week! :)

Happy Greek Easter, and I don't think one ever forgets how to swim!

I must confess to not liking Titanic! The film was much tooooo sad, just not for me. And drowning and freezing must be very awful ways to die. But I do have other films I like to cry over! Have a nice Easter! Valerie

Ha! The movie came out in theaters when I was pregnant, alone, terrified and working retail hours. I saw the movie TEN times - it was the one place I could cry without anyone bothering me.

Happy (belated) Greek Easter. Ha, I love the things you admitted! Actually like the theme song; so funny! I like the water, but will never go on a cruise!
