I learn a lot from Tee vee...

The finale of Sex and the City makes me cry every time I watch it. It was on TBS last night. I remember the first time I heard Carrie say this to that stupid Aleksandr after she gave up her life and moved to Paris to be with him, and he completely ignored her all the time.

He says..."I thought I was clear about who I was"

She says..."Maybe its time to be clear about who I am. I am someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't live without each other love. And I don't think that love is here"

Yes. That is what it's all about. (you can watch the 3 min clip here on you tube...made me cry AGAIN!)

I started being honest with myself and the universe about my wants and needs. And...I found it. Or, it found me. Or, we found each other. To find someone who is on the same path as you, is an amazing thing. I think you just have to start the work, and the rest will fall into place. To anyone who is lying to themselves about what they want, or selling themselves short. Think about that. Doesn't everyone want that kind of love? Don't doubt it. Why should you give up on what you really want, when it's out there for everyone? You just have to believe that it is.

God damn, I'm inspirational. I'll remember that when I'm drinking beeritas by the fire this weekend, and hiding the for rent sign at my apartment complex w/Tayray.

Oh, and you should try this!

1 12 oz can of frozen limade
1.5 C tequila (gold)
12 oz mexican beer (or more depending on your taste, theres always room for more beer)

Mix ingredients in a pitcher, and pour over ice with a lime wedge.

You won't know what hitcha!

OK. Don't hate me. I've never watched Sex and the City. But you're absolutely right about not lying to yourself about what you want!

Beerita spells major hangover to me.

Yeah, that scene of SATC kills me, too. And you're right about lying to yourself about your wants and needs -- it's not worth selling yourself short.

Also, a friend of mine made beeritas for us on Cinco de Mayo. They're delish AND deadly!
