commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: He Wants What She Can't Stand
@7 - Eh, I think it can be part of the human condition, especially if you're of the opinion that you will find that One And Only Twu Wuv and all the emotional baggage that goes with it.
That said, I did date a girl who saw my every interaction with other women to be a sign that I didn't love her. When she heard that a female friend of mine was coming out to Seattle to visit me (and a whole bunch of other friends out here), she flipped: "Well if you like her so much, why don't you MARRY her?!?!" Never mind that I wasn't attracted to her and she was more of a big sister in my life. Mind you, she had a lot of issues and that ultimately made me get out once I realized how abusive the relationship was.

commented on Meet the New Cinderella, Same as the Old Cinderella
"Cinderella, in the cellar,
Didn't have to much as far as I can tell.
Her godmother was two-thirds fairy.
Suddenly her life was a lot less scary,
But what if you haven't got a fairy to fix it?
Sometimes you have to make a little bit of mischief."
--"Naughty" from the musical Matilda by Tim Minchin
Tim sums it all up so nicely, doesn't he?

@1 There's also the fact that we're quick to jump on flaws in movies/literature we can't stand even as we can overlook glaring plot holes in movies we love.
That hypothetical movie I hated? How DARE they use a 1956 Cadillac in a scene OBVIOUSLY set in 1953! Stupid, lazy film-makers. But Indiana Jones apparently holding his breath while he clings to a Nazi U-Boat for days/weeks at a time? Oh come on, it's just a movie!

commented on Is Anyone Else Excited NOT to Watch the Super Bowl Tomorrow?
My local indy coffee shop will actually be closed tomorrow so I don't even have that option for non-Super Bowl activities. I'll probably read, maybe go see a movie...
I'm happy for the fans and the folks who are super into the sport but... meh.
