corset & bougainvillea

Moon river.

1. After never watching it while it was still on the air, I have managed to watch all of Sex and the City in the last few months thanks to its syndication on two local stations and borrowing the DVDs from cindymonkey. I identify far too much with Carrie, and I think I have had all these relationships. Seriously. My fascination began while sitting miserable on the couch with a box of tissues in December, watching Berger pull a cowardly disappearing act that was very... familiar and has only gotten deeper watching the parade of impotent, emotionally withholding, and unfaithful man-children. If only they could throw in some clingy women and lesbian bed death, they'd have my love life totally pegged.*

2. I'm exhausted, and I think I'm getting sick again.

3. I haven't the time to explain what's wrong with this to these people. So you can. I'm too busy trying to save rent control.

4. I think I'm going to Miami in a couple of weeks for a Right to the City conference on Just Cause's dime. I haven't been back there since before my mother moved out to the Bay Area in 2003. That should be interesting.

5. Did I mention that I'm exhausted?

*I'm aware of all the various issues with the show, but I have to say--it does get some things right. A little too right.
