I'm patiently waiting for this current obsession to go away. These things I fall into are weird... be it a band, a movie, an actor, whatever catches my attention at that time and doesn't let go. Thank God they only last a couple of weeks or so because it just gets old, but you can't let go.

Does that make sense to anyone else? And I hate when I can see it coming and I try to not obsess over that movie. But eff it. I'll turn it on anyway.

*facepalm* Slowly waning... far too slowly.

Helps when I watch other movies.

Ten Inch Hero - freakin cutest movie I've seen in a very long time. The nudity seemed a little random to me, but the movie was hilarious, and sweet, and adorable, and quite obviously predictable, but still so freakin' awesome. I've hit my chick flick for the month. :) Heh... and I love that Clea DuVall's character is named Jen. Thank you for voicing all of my internal thoughts, no matter how generically personal they may be. But it's true.

Ok, the following is just me brain dribbling. Kind of a window into what I was thinking during this part of the movie. So none of this pick-me-up comment bull unless you've seen the movie and think it's cute too. :)

I loved this line: "I didn't say I don't have a lot to offer, I said that people will never know because they don't SEE me. How many proms did you miss because no one asked you? How many times have your friends left you sitting alone at a club while they went and danced with guys? Or how many times has a customer completely ignored you to get a better look at me? So until that happens, until you're told time and time again that your place in life is in the background, don't tell me it's bullshit, because you don't know."

I went to prom (and did not have a real slow dance until my close friend's wedding three and a half years ago); I go dance at the club be it with guys or not; I keep someone's attention because when I was in that kind of job, they had to talk to me as I was the lead and had their answers. However, I know what it's like to be used to get closer to my better-looking friend. I know what it's like to be with a man who does not consider you a priority and you are simply a convenience for him. I know what it's like to not be the first choice of person to hang out with that night. I know what it's like to be the third, fourth, fifth, ninth wheel in a group because I'm chronically single.

I've got a lot of close friends that I adore and I know love me. That's not the issue. The issue is that none of that helps me pick up men. But that's ok because all of the men I've met recently (sailors in King's Bay, Georgia notwithstanding) are more than twice my age or already married.

Meh, it is what it is. The movie was adorable on all levels and of course, Jen got her man in the end (and a cute one too). For me, I'm just kicking back, watching the world around me and enjoying the show as an audience member. As long I've got a good glass of wine in hand, I'm perfectly content with that. :D
