“I don’t think it’s terribly controversial to note that women, from a young age, are required to consider the reality of the opposite gender’s consciousness in a way that men aren’t. This isn’t to say that women don’t often misunderstand, mistreat, and stereotype men, both in literature and in life. But on a basic level, functioning in society requires that women register that men are fully conscious; it is not really possible for a woman to throw up her hands and write men off as eternally unknowable space aliens — and even if she says she has, she cannot really behave as though she has. Every element of her life — from reading books about boys and men to writing papers about the motivations of male characters to being attentive to her own safety to navigating most any institutional or professional or economic sphere — demands an ironclad familiarity with, and belief in, the idea that men really are fully human entities. And no matter how many men come to the same conclusions about women, the structure of society simply does not demand so strenuously that they do so. If you didn’t really deep down believe that women were, in general, exactly as conscious as you, you could probably still get by in life. You could probably still get a book deal. You could probably still get elected to office.”

They look like awkward teachers trying to dance cool at the prom. Especially Rudd in his sweater vest. Jesus.

I wanna bone Paul Rudd.

Seriously, though, I found out just today that this is a thing.  What new and amazing insecurities there are to discover every single day!  It’s a magical world.

Moral of the story: Your thighs are fine.  Work it, ladies. You’re all gorgeous.

I’ve been watching a lot of rom-coms.

I find most of them to be nauseatingly simplistic. I can’t even appreciate them for what they are - a lighthearted, fun, fantasy. I can’t even enjoy them as a guilt pleasure. A character always says something so sexist and so offensive, it turns me off to the entire movie.

And I find the women, who’s primary concern is finding love, intolerable.

But A Little Bit of Heaven had some refreshing feminist moments. First, let me say that it is not a very good movie. But I adore Kate Hudson, and I don’t care who knows it. I’ve been in awe of her since I saw her in Almost Famous. She’s so incredibly charming, and adorable - I think her eyes literally sparkle. She is also a member of itty bitty titty committee, and owns it, which I love.

Moving on. The movie sucks because it has a sickeningly trite story of a shockingly upbeat cancer patient, who teaches everyone who surrounds her what it means to live. We’ve seen it a dozen times.

But, there were a few moments which made me smile. One, is when Kate Hudson’s character is playing Barbies with her niece and comparing Barbie’s breasts and her own, making her understand that Barbies are “fake” while Kate’s are real. Another, is when Garcia Bernal’s character tells the niece how pretty she looks, and Kate prompts the niece to smile and proclaim “And I’m smart!” So adorable.

Kate’s character is unapologetic about her sexuality. She prides herself on her emotional independence and several sexual partners. She unabashedly tells a group of male execs she buys condoms (and that other women do to). However, her progressive take on sex and relationships turns out to be nothing more than a defense mechanism - her dad never loved her and she doesn’t want to get hurt by another man. She eventually does learn to love, and dies happy.

I’d love to see more movies where a woman dies a lone and is totally cool with it.

It may be worth watching just to see the adorable couple Gael and Kate make. Not that they had an overwhelming onscreen chemistry, but, they look smoking hot together.

I am sad and I don’t know how to fix it.

I hate when something crashes and burns before it even gets a chance to reach its full potential.

It’s hard to let go.

I like not working. Too much.

Today I slept until 11. I’m still in bed.

This does not bode well for my job search.

Now that I’m unemployed

I figure I should start blogging. Maybe.
