Maybe I’m an asshole. The annoying conversations going on Sunday night, Bookworm, non-smoking section:
“You know what it is about lesbians that look butch? They subconsciously want to be men. They want women, they want to be men.”
“I teach art. Sometimes the kids want to do whatever and do all this crazy stuff but they have to understand there’s a formula. Sometimes you do stuff and discover something. But you can’t teach that. I think art can exist without creativity.”
Uhhh. Huh. Thanks, expat community, for these nuggets of wisdom.

Mother of God.
It’s a firewall thing. Come on, WP. Throw me a bone here! Don’t make me go to Blogger.

Wednesday morning tv watching:
Roman Holiday was good, as always. You know at the end when Audrey says, “I have faith in relations between countries as I have faith in relations between people” and Gregory Peck says something like “that’s cool, it’s not misplaced.” Is she telling him she has faith that he won’t trivialize their fling by making it into a story or is she saying that they will meet up again?
Casino is hilarious here because HBO bleeps out everything. Ergo, the lack of awesome beat-up scenes and coke scenes and James Woods is made up for with some creative rewrites:
Stuff you! Stuff you! Stuff you!
It is great to see Nicky ask the cowboy, “You called my friend a maggot!? A maggot!?” A big deal, apparently.
Then there was some movie with Vivica A. Fox, Carmen Electra and some cute girl that I know I’ve seen before. It was totally unwatchable. I wish Vivica was the new Pam Grier. Do it, QT.
