Part 1:
Doesn’t this photo remind of Cesar from ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes‘?

Part 2:
Love affairs can be broken down in chapters but there’s not a definitive end to the love affairs where there’s still affection involved. I’m a fool for the definitive end.   I loathe ambiguity. Writing the book everyday eliminates ambiguity.

Part 3:
The book is telling me that I’m still uncertain.  I hate that.

Cheesy Song of the Day, April 29: ‘The Look of Love’ ABC


the look of love cheesy song of the day tallulah bankhead

Part 1.
The first time I heard ‘The Look of Love‘,  I thought who is the sexy, confident man? And then I danced my ass off.

Part 2.
The life lessons — it takes a lot to love you.  No one should ever get their life and love lessons from a pop song because pop songs are the work of the devil and libertines.  But if you must, there’s no better bible than ABC’s fully detailed breakdown of recognizing and responding to the look of love.  The one thing, the one thing….

Part 3.
Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry wrote the song.  I love it even more.

Cheesy Song of the Day, April 28: ‘I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times’ The Beach Boys

Part 1:
This choice, inspired by the Mad Men episode, ‘Far Away Places‘, fits the mood.  I can’t sleep (did you know that Law & Order airs at 3am, Sunday – Thursday?).  My mind can’t wind down enough to let me relax.  And when I do fall asleep, I dream of Eddie Murphy, bat mitzvahs and George Clooney.  I can’t even begin to deal with that.

Part 2:
Once a week, I’m poked for blood. The search for a vein that is not thin & scrawny is unpleasant.  I have my own personal vein whisperer who is patient with the search.  She doesn’t poke needlessly.  She has me put my arm under warm water for 3 minutes or more. Then, the search continues. The vein whisperer suggests exercises to make my veins pop.  I promise to comply.  Right after I write this blog post.

Part 3:
Prick. The vein is found.  I never ever look as my blood fills the vial.  It happens so fast. Then the IV goes in and the treatment begins. I wasn’t made for this. And yet I was.

How does Angelina Jolie fall out of a helicopter and survive?


How is this based in reality? I know it’s an action movie and she’s a bad ass but this is pure insanity! Suspension of reality, BOLLOCKS!

and Eat Pray Love is food porn.  Watching movies. The pizza looks incredible.

Love & Basketball! Monica is so in love with Quincy that she aches! I felt the ache from the screen. And when I saw the movie, I was not in love with anyone so there was no emotional confusion. Ever been that in love? I hope the answer is yes and I hope the answer is no.

Favorite part?  1:47…

I smell you in my dreams/But now when we’re face to face/You won’t look me in the eye/no time no friendship no love

You don’t know how hearts burn/for a love that cannot live/but never dies

Walking around with this knowledge is an unpleasant sensation.  It’s not a constant hurt, but when it’s touched by a song, a memory or an old email, the burn pulsates. And then you fall into the despair.  For a moment.
