I went to Tree's to see a movie tonight and she gave me three choices. I'd never heard of Closer but when I saw that Clive Owen, Jude Law and Natalie Portman were in it, there was no contest. (To be fair, Julia Roberts also played well in it but her name just doesn't sell movies to me.) It also helped that Tree said her roomate didn't like it, that's the one who thinks I'm weird for not liking Napolean Dynamite. For me, Closer was absolutely amazing and I'm probably going to go out and buy it, probably tomorrow.

It has a scene that Clive Owen absolutely nailed as a husband destroyed by his wife's infidelity. I felt it so completely it was like he'd channeled into my soul. Not because of infidelity on Tam's part (I've suspicions about way back when, but all I can know is that I'll never really know) but because of the way I've lost her to Huntingtons. Completely different situations, but man did I know what that guy was feeling. Anger, hurt, confusion, loss, desperation; that might just begin to describe it. Go see the movie, I think you'll get it.

I was at a club in TO again on Friday night and at one point while I was sitting on a couch this girl just came over and sat in my lap. She stayed there for a minute or two, with an arm around me and my arm around her, then got up and left. No words were said, no names exchanged. It felt so wonderfully good, and so horribly lonely all at the same time. I don't know what to do about that, but thank you girl, whoever you were. Gotta get me one of those again. Maybe soon, I don't know.
