Morning Mail – 1.18.11

Brooke: I just don't know how we got here. Our entire relationship, I have gone above and beyond for you, for us. I've cooked, I've picked your shit up off the floor, I've laid your clothes out for you like you're a four year old. I support you, I supported your work. If we ever had dinner or anything I did the plans, I take care of everything. And I just don't feel like you appreciate any of it. I don't feel you appreciate me. All I want is to know, is for you to show me that you care.
Gary: Why didn't you just say that to me"
Brooke: I tried. I've tried.
Gary: Never like that, you might have said some things that meant to imply that, but I'm not a mind reader...
Brooke: It wouldn't matter you are who you are. Just leave me alone ok? Right now, just shut my door.
Gary: Listen...
Brooke: Alright Gary just please, just leave the room. Gary just... I don't want to be near you right now, please just shut the door, please.

I still think that Brooke was the reason this didn’t work out. She spent 75% of this movie talking about how she wanted him to just realize that he needed to make some changes in their relationship. Her solution was to break up with him and then put him through a bunch of twisted little games. In the mind of a man, mainly because we see things as black and white, he thought they were broken up. The takeaway, don’t play games, don’t sabotage your relationship to show your partner something about themselves.

What is to be said of women who just cheer for the other team because they think that’s an indirect way of flirting with you? I don’t expect women to like sports, I don’t expect them to know anything about football or basketball outside of knowing the basics like; who’s playing and how teams score. What bothers me is when someone is trying to be cool and they say, “Oh who are you cheering for? The Lakers? Okay, I’ll cheer for the Thunder.” Then they get mad when you ignore them for the rest of the game.

People in NYC swear people in DC are weird and incompetent, people in DC think people in NYC are too radical and wishy washy. Who knows if we’ll ever come to a consensus? I’ve spent considerable amounts of time in both places and I don’t think either has an argument. The thing is we’re different, but that doesn’t make one better or worse. NYC maybe the fashion capital or the money capital of the world, but the governing body of the entire free world sits in Washington, DC. Depending on how you see things, you can say either or.

My last point, when people say that people in DC can’t drive, it’s completely nonsensical. 1) Most people in DC who are driving aren’t from DC, so you’re not talking about anyone who is from here. 1b) Because you have so many driving styles in one city, you’re destined to have a mess, 2) No city in which insurance companies have declared it a “no-fault” city can talk about anyone else and their driving habits.

Is there anything more annoying than hugging someone and coming away with a collar full of makeup?

What is to be said about those women who approach men in nightclubs? I guess that solves that.

There was a cheerleader in the Pitt-Cuse game last night… oooh wee.

Would anyone be interested in me posting a recipe or something I cooked recently every week? I was thinking that once a week I would do a day where I talk about something I cooked and give a recipe or some cooking tips.

Geoffrey was killing them on Fresh Prince. Dude was on the low stealing the show on the regular.

Another reason why Hank Moody is the man… so if you’re following he’s been arrested for statutory rape, he’s going to get off though. Real talk, this chick trapped him, f*cked him, punched him and then stole his book idea. Anyway, that girl was 16 and his ex-wife was her father. In the end, he took his ex-wife back from her fiancé, that girl’s father. So that dude has to sleep with this, Hank stole his woman and f*cked his daughter. And that burns…


Smash and bang!

Life is good. God is good.

This post is about as random as you can get...I enjoyed it...Hank Moody is a piece of work. I can see why you would like Californication. NY/DC, never made comparisons.

Why would anyone be opposed to you posting recipes of what you've cooked? This is YOUR blog after all. If that's what's on your mind, I'm all eyes.

Now let's see if I can post this with any less clicks this week.
