Time to soothe.

Appropriate for a Sunday, y'all deserve something nice, something easy, something gentle and soothing.

And, if you're like me, Mousy Meg Ryan from Joe Versus the Volcano is soothing:

Meg Ryan as DeDe in 'Joe Vs. the Volcano' (1990)

I crushed on DeDe from first sight. And it's a performance from Meg Ryan that she hadn't really done before, part of her three-character turn in that film, one of many ways that film is damn clever. And sweet, on top of the craziness of the story and the visuals. (John Patrick Shanley, back when he was writing the script and before he'd been signed as the film's director, thought Directing this is going to kill someone. I'm glad it didn't! I'm sure he is, too.)

Anyway. DeDe is another exhibit in my "tending to go for brunettes" thing. Certainly Ryan is attractive a lot of the time, but her look here really made me notice. And maybe it's that whole "It's the quiet ones you have to watch out for" thing, too. *smiles*

There. Good day. I hope you're soothed in whatever way is soothing to you.
