What it is about the love between Tita and Pedro, (the Latino Ron Livingston) in Like Water For Chocolate, that makes me feel like I can pull off bangs?  I think the character TIta and I shared the same look during my junior year of high school. My time was spent trying use "assuage" convincingly in a sentence.  She passed the time tending the ranch, upholding the tradition of the youngest girl not marrying, fighting off Mexican rebels and enduring life under the same roof as her true love who humbled himself to marry her sister just so he could be closer to Tita while the spirit her spiteful dead mother hung around and sporadically set people on fire.

Thats how she signed my yearbook.
