Seems to me like a lil' lean cuisine wouldn't hurt that much.
She ain't fat, she's just in need of an image make-over (or so she keeps telling herself). So that diet is doggedly pursued. It may never matter to him (whoever he is) but she's doing it for herself.
And so the pendelum continually swings
Its on the wrong side she feels but he says it does not matter.
No kidding...but then they would say that...right?
The thought of an inevitable union terrifies her. She won't admit it, but she's terribly independent. She doesn't know what to think about kids, but she's thinking of working with them... She's excited by all the possibilities and yet a bit scared too.
Ha! The Irony. More than a year later she's still terified. She's older and the dreaded union seems as inevitable as ever. Is it companion unsuitability? Or something deeper? who knows? Does she care? How many people have done it just because it needed to be done. Just a phase...right?
The bills? The car? The house?
She won't think about it. She thinks but she doesn't dwell.
Its forbidden territory. Her heart says it will be OK.
IT IS OK. Its become a cycle, but she will be ok.
She's lost her religion. She needs it back. It defined her for a very long time. 'Xcept its no longer religion. She's questioning any and everything. Did we mention her independence? Oh yeah. But she thinks about Him. What does He think of her?
Sinner? Lost? Confused?
She flirts with going back. Of starting over.
But words fail her and she's weak.
One of the 7 deadly sins, you know. Her biggest obstacle. Her head is ringing all the alarms.
No job. No money. Mounting bills.
She flirts with suicide. What if she could just disappear? That's why she goes to the Internet. But it is not that simple. An Alternate reality.
Sadly the same...she went back. Its never easy and there are still so many questions. She's still thinking thoughts like Heath Ledger.

Matthew McConaughey's friends including the G have deserted him at his most vulnerable...fully clothed!
Oh the Horror!
Irreverent, funny and with it's tongue firmly in cheek, the very British and very cosmopolitan Jake Watch was unveiled yesterday.
Jake as Marilyn, Elvis (with President Nixon), Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles and James Dean respectively adorn the new banner designed by honorary Briton and actual American, Becky a.k.a. Prophecy Girl.
Three new additions have been made to the rooster of writers, including my new favorite Frankie, who as Jake's manager apparently oversaw Jake's roles in amongst others, the Good Girl, Proof and Brokeback Mountain largely based on who the G got to stick his "winkle" into. Sounds like my kinda guy. Madame Swiss also sounds promising. She apparently likens the G to a stray cat and has a certain fondness for his love life. Good stuff.
And to celebrate retrograde... An extract from one of Britpopbaby's 'exclusive' Interviews from Oct 2006. Vintage JW.
Can we talk a little about your career? Brokeback Mountain has become a phenomenon. How much of that success was down to you, do you think?
Yeah, I mean, I think indirectly I had absolutely nothing to do with that.
(Jake stares off into distance)
But do you think the experience of that movie has changed you somewhat? Brokeback got us good, don't it?
I guess. What about working with Ang Lee? That must have been an honour.
I didn't understand what he was talking about.
What about hobbies?
I made a new friend today.
(britpopbaby swigs more gin)
Real or imaginary?

Pop poetry as seen through the eyes of Weird Al

Birds go flying at the speed of sound to show you how it began...
And we will all float on a cage...
Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me
Somebody told me you had a boy friend who looked like a girlfriend that I had in February last year?

Let it not be said that Kiki dosen't do her research.
Best Actress 2008 (or whenever), I don't care what anyone else says the girl's gonna rock as the 1st lady of punk!
And how about Johnny as Chris Stein...the love of Debbie's life? hehe.
Who knows whether he'll be Kirsten's very own Sid Vicious? But for now she could indulge and let him play house.
