just a few things

I didn't shed one tear for the life and death of that woman in Florida, the pope, or Johnnie Cochran. Every time some natural disaster (like lots of rain in Southern California) displaces families who have lost really nice homes built on cliffs and whatnot, I don't feel bad for them. Yet I keep tearing up when I watch the reality t.v. shows Extreme Makeover (not the home edition, I mean the one with plastic surgery and people with bad teeth) and Nanny 911.* What's wrong with me?

* I think one of my independent film making friends had to take some work for money doing post production on this show. That makes it good, right?

Kathy, what IS wrong with you? Probably nothing. I tear up at almost anything, especially Extreme Makeover (the Home Edition!) and lots of commercials. I guess I'm just a crier.

I must defend my position on Brad Pitt in a man dress. I only started thinking Mr. Pitt was hot after Fight Club (cuz he was all buff and mean, I found that hot). OK, maybe I thought he was hot in Thelma & Louise, but right away he became a heart throb and I stopped caring. Then Fight Club and then Snatch! He's also, like, 40 or something and he's gotten way hotter than when he was 30. Plus, I have a weakness for period pieces set in ancient times. And he's playing Achilles!!! Unlike Elias, I didn't expect a faithful adaptation, I expected to see Brad Pitt, The Hulk and Orlando Bloom running around in sandals and skimpy outfits!

One day, Elias, you and me - we should make as faithful an adaptation as possible of both The Iliad and The Odyssey. One day...

Finally : Kathy, I love and miss you! You are the bestest ever!

Sorry, I say that reflexively whenever anyone brings up Schiavo.

I have a question about Extreme Makeover. I suppose it's rhetorical in nature.

When you are born with the most extreme version of your 'family nose' for example, and you have it removed on TV, how does it really feel when you go back to your family (who are mostly wearing a version of that same nose) and show off your disembodied new nose?

I would be embarrassed, I guess if I was the only one in my family with a nose by Disney.

I never cry

well except when I PMSing and for no reason

If someone I loved died or is sick - that would make me cry. People I don't know usually don't make me cry even when its really sad.
I think extreme makeover is really sad. If I cried -

i might tear up if i ever watched extreme makeover, but i don't because it's EVIL! (and because it makes me want to puke). xui, i didn't expect a faithful adaptation of homer, i just didn't think they would change so much for no apparent reason, unless the goal was to make a historically ridiculous, narratively tedious pile of...hunkiness. i mean, how is it any better than gay porn?
