ordinary moments

There is a lot I want to write right now and a lot I don't want to write right now. Oh boy. I just reminded myself of that line from Best in Show when the busty character Sherri Ann Cabot says, "We have so much in common, we both love soup and snow peas, we love the outdoors, and talking and not talking. We could not talk or talk forever and still find things to not talk about." Quotes, man.

What happens when the masks come off and people reveal their true identity? It was a wolf this whole time! A wolf in sheep's clothing. But this wolf is also sometimes truly a sheep. I'm a wolf sometime, right? We can all be wolves sometimes and we can all sometimes wear wolf t-shirts. I can't even begin to know how to approach this subject, so maybe I won't right now. That last sentence reminded me of yet another movie quote, but this time the quote comes from a little film I (and everyone else) like to call The Royal Tenenbaums. Raleigh asks my soul sister Margot, "Have you met someone else?" And dearheart Margot replies, "I couldn't even begin to think about knowing how to answer that question." Quotes, woman.

hi it's me, the frequent commenter. commentator? that is different. what if i was the commentator of your life? commentating every move you make. i should probably not actually write these things but instead just think them?

LIKE most of the population i too love both of those movies. i've even used that margot quote in my real life. not my fake life.

i just really like when you post.

Ariana, I am not sure you realize how much I wish you would be the commentator of my life. So... I guess I am proposing to you right now on the World Wide Net. Will you be my life commentator?
