halfway through a conversation...
Me: ...It's like Garden State. It's not like I hated it. It's just that it felt flat. It was overrated in the way where everyone felt like, "Finally! A movie about me or a movie I could relate to because it explains all these feelings I have but haven't seen them portrayed before on film." but really, it was like this Urban Outfitters manufactured movie that lacked a kind of genuineness...
Coworker: Wait, you didn't like Garden State?!?

"As my belly grew, the comments got even stranger. I had secretly hoped for no reaction, for our choice to be as common as saying, “I went with the mustard instead of the ketchup.” No reaction would mean something good, right? That women in this country are, for example, no longer considered the property of men, even in name. That archaic systems are truly collapsing. That we can reclaim language that was formerly used to control us.

But it seemed, at least to me, that using a woman’s last name for a child threatened everyone. An older woman asked me if I was doing this to make a point. Why was all this doing perceived as mine, not my husband’s as well? At a party, a peer told me she was “diehard Obama” and then argued that her only real concern about using a woman’s last name is that you risk the ease of preserving lineage and historical records."

I’m sorry for coining the phrase “Manic Pixie Dream Girl”, by Nathan Rabin.

“I coined the phrase to call out cultural sexism and to make it harder for male writers to posit reductive, condescending male fantasies of ideal women as realistic characters. But I looked on queasily as the phrase was increasingly accused of being sexist itself…Let’s all try to write better, more nuanced and multi-dimensional female characters: women with rich inner lives and complicated emotions and total autonomy, who might strum ukuleles or dance in the rain even when there are no men around to marvel at their free-spiritedness. “

Paul Simon - “Graceland”

Perfect songs don’t exi-

She comes back to tell me she’s gone
As if I didn’t know that
As if I didn’t know my own bed
As if I’d never noticed
The way she brushed her hair from her forehead
And she said losing love
Is like a window in your heart
Everybody sees you’re blown apart
Everybody sees the wind blow
