24

Okay, I turn 24 today (it's 1 am, so I can say "today"), and I'm working at a normal job that requires me to wake up at 6:30 am. What I mean is, I need to go to bed. But I just thought I'd let all my readers (Ben) know that I'm going to start blogging again. Especially now that I know how to use html and affiliate links and all that cool stuff, thanks to my new job. You can check out the latest fruits of my labor at Paris Hilton FAQs. Anyway, hopefully I'll blog about something more meaningful later, but for now... I'm excited to be turning 24 -- because I love the show 24. How lame is that.

(beep. beep. beep. beep. beep.)

Oh, also, I love the movie Closer, which I was reminded of tonight. So I offer a few quotes from the movie, for your enjoyment:

Alice: You still fancy me?
Dan: ... Of course.
Alice: You're lying. I've been you.

Anna: Why is the sex so important?
Larry: Because I'm a fucking caveman!

Dan: You think love is simple. You think the heart is like a diagram!
Larry: Have you ever seen a human heart? It looks like a fist, covered in blood! Go fuck yourself! You writer! You liar!

Dan: At six, we stand round the computer and read the next day's page, make final changes, put in a few euphemisms to amuse ourselves...
Alice: Such as?
Dan: "He was a convivial fellow" - meaning he was an alcoholic. "He valued his privacy" - gay. "He enjoyed his privacy" - raging queen.
Alice: What would my euphemism be?
Dan: She was... disarming.
Alice: That's not a euphemism.
Dan: Yes, it is.

Alice: It's a lie. It's a bunch of sad strangers photographed beautifully, and... all the glittering assholes who appreciate Art say it's beautiful 'cause that's what they wanna see. But the people in the photos are sad, and alone... But the pictures make the world seem beautiful, so... the exhibition is reassuring, which makes it a lie, and everyone loves a big fat lie.

Dan: You love her like a dog loves its owner.
Larry: And the owner loves the dog for so doing.
Dan: You'll hurt her. You'll never forgive her.
Larry: Of course I'll forgive her. I have forgiven her. Without forgiveness we're savages. You're drowning.
