…when Gosling was 10 his mother took him out of class and home-schooled him. He spent the year with her, watching movies, listening to Chet Baker and Billie Holiday, gave him, he says, ‘a sense of autonomy that I’ve never really lost’. (Source)
Now I finally have an excuse for jumping on the Ryan “Hey, Girl” Gosling meme bandwagon with this picture:
Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was wondering on Facebook if Gosling knows he’s Pinterest’s first Pin-up boy? Funny.
Now I’m just another random meme-joiner.
Postcards from the Past will return next week. That’s because I’m pretty sure that Mr. Gosling would say: “Hey, girl. I love the way that you blog about your grandpa’s postcards.”
• Props to Kiss My Aster for taking this meme to the garden. Yeah, she’s my inspiration. You go, girl.
• Oh, wait… there’ s even more on this story about Ryan being homeschooled.
Update: Battle of the Ryans
(Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
