The infrastructure will collapse

Yesterday's moment of shame: I was in Midtown Video, waiting to check out, and Juno was playing on their huge, discolored television set. I saw this movie in the theater, back in December when it came out. It was right after I had started listening to Kimya Dawson a lot, plus it looked cute and cool. And I'm not saying it was a bad movie, I'd watch it again. But Ellen Page makes me want to pop her head like a grape, and the dialogue was a little Dawson's Creek-y. (Speaking of which, some commercial for a new TV drama that stars Joshua Jackson came on at the movies the other night, and before I could help myself, I shouted "Pacey!" Ok, maybe I didn't shout).

OK, back to the story in which I am a total stereotype of a woman approaching 30... The birth scene begins, which is accompanied by Cat Power's cover of Sea of Love. And my face starts doing that crumple cry thing, because a baby is being born on television. And my uterus wants a baby inside it, Goddammit! And then I'm like SHUT THE FUCK UP UTERUS, YOU'VE GOT TO GO WITH ME TO GRAD SCHOOL AND THEN WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT.

Am I the only one who wants to have sex immediately upon hearing this song??

The kind of sex you have with someone you at least sort of love, in a room that is dark but slightly illuminated by a streetlight shining in the window. Lots of intense eye contact sex.

None of these thoughts are helping my dedication to my work this morning.

I want to have sex to this song. Me! Me! Pick me!

P.S. I know you hate Juno, and I don't, but I do the crumple face cry thing too. I did it a lot during the Ricki Lake documentary. My uterus wants a baby, but it also wants a nice ass, non-saggy tits, and late nights at the bar without worrying about the babysitter doing things I did when I was that age in my now-grownup home with my child nearby.

P.P.S. Did you ever listen to the Cat Power concert on NPR music? You can get it as a free podcast.

I have had sex to that song. Great, innit?

Did you notice...we seem to have the same name. Strange eh?

I nearly choked when I read your 'about me'...because I never thought I'd find another person JUST LIKE ME--same name...even a common interest: SEX.
