Inter Mission: Silver Screen Inspiration For Our Valentines Day Mission

This week: MISSION Amy K.R. has a guest-blogger: Rebecca Kavanagh.

How are your grand plans coming along? Have you ordered the flock of doves? Do you think you've got enough helium for all those balloons? Are you dotting the i's and crossing the t's on that love poem? Shhhhhhh" don't spoil the surprise. But do make it happen --  soon --  so we can share details with the universe on Friday.

Need a nudge? Take a break and listen to this week's music choices, which come from two '80s flicks that shaped the way a generation thinks about grand gestures.

Elevator Music is from Ferris Bueller's Day Off --  a comedy, yes, but a love story to its very core. It's hard to believe that Ferris would have gone to such great lengths were he not trying to impress the beautiful Sloane. Don't you imagine that if she had stayed in class, Ferris and Cameron would have ended up on the couch playing Atari?

Elevating Music will flash you back to Lloyd Dobler, rocking the sweatpants and boombox-serenading Diane Court in Say Anything." This is what your girlfriend wants. Just do it.

OK. Stop chair dancing and get busy to planning your own happily ever after. We'll see you back here on Friday for everyone's applause-worthy results.
