Getting it wrong, one bagel at a time.

“How would your life be different if you learned to let go of things that have already let go of you? From relationships long gone, to old grudges, to regrets, to all the ‘could’ve’ and ‘should’ve,’ to the dead friendships you still hang on to… Free yourself from the burden of a past you cannot change.”

I want my workout look to be “Claire Underwood going on a evil jog around Georgetown” or “Claire Underwood scheming on the rowing machine inside her townhouse.”

“1970. Company. ‘The Ladies Who Lunch.’ ‘A matinee, a Pinter play, perhaps a piece of Mahler’s.’ I thought Mahler’s was a pastry shop on Broadway. ‘Mahler’s Pastries,’ 47th Street and Broadway. The ladies had lunch, they went to see a matinee, they saw a Pinter play, and then afterwards they went around the corner and had a cup of tea and a piece of Mahler. Made perfect sense to me. And when I brought it up to Stephen Sondheim, he said, ‘Elaine, I have to go to the bathroom.’”

A, remember when we saw House of Blue Leaves?? You probably don’t because I forgot it existed until the playbill reminded me. I think you left at intermission…
And we also saw Master Class and Mrs. Warren’s Profession with Cherry and Adam Driver. I cannot stop laughing.

I stayed for the entire thing because I’ve only left one show at intermission in my theatre going history- Sweet Charity with Christina Applegate- and because TC was there.

God I wish I had your self-restraint.

This.is.so.fun.

I was thinking about this the other day for no reason! I remember leaving you at intermission because I was SO ENRAGED. I also remember going to a Saturday matinee of Mrs. Warren… We only got the Tony tickets that SG didn’t want, so beggars can’t be choosers…

“We all have our little solipsistic delusions, ghastly intuitions of utter similarity: that we are the only one in the house who ever fills the ice-cube tray, who unloads the clean dishwasher, who occasionally pees in the shower, whose eyelid twitches on first dates; that only we take casualness terribly seriously; that only we hear the whiny pathos in a dog’s yawn, the timeless sigh in the opening of the hermetically-sealed jar, the splattered laugh in the frying egg, the minor-D lament in the vacuum’s scream; that only we feel the panic at sunset the rookie kindergartner feels at his mother’s retreat. That only we love the only-we. Solipsism binds us together, J.D. knows. That we feel lonely in a crowd; stop not to dwell on what’s brought the crowd into being. That we are, always, faces in a crowd.”

Westward the Course of Empire Takes its Way, David Foster Wallace (via ourcatastrophe)
