Hi friends and others. Jay and I just got home from seeing Juno. It’s been a while since I have so thoroughly enjoyed a movie. I think part of me was in there – not literally, of course, I just really related to the Vanessa character, if I were more like my sister, it would be a perfect fit. But my personality is more like the the kid played by Michael Cera; at least when I was that age, that’s pretty much how I acted – paralyzed by people I liked. Anyway, I don’t want to ruin anything for you, so maybe you should just go see the movie.
I like movies that try to get to the root of what love is. I like seeing movies with that theme with my live-in boyfriend/husband, Jay. Jay and I have a really good and happy relationship. It’s actually sort of shocking to be a part of something that’s so right when all around are examples of relationships that are damaging and sad. I feel a little guilty or something, like I got the biggest piece of the pie; but I can’t help it if I recognized him as my partner. And as sheepish as I sometimes feel about telling other people about it, I believe that I got the best of all possible worlds for me in the love category. So yaye me. Love at first sight turns out to be my forte. Of course it’s a skill you only need once, so that’s maybe a waste or something. But I’m not complaining.
Ok, have a nice night. Oh – I’m on winter break now from school, so you can be expecting lots of poems to be entered in the near future. Sheila
