Following the road

Went to see Oz with Frisbee and Now-hubby on Friday night. I'll spare you all the incredibly nerdy discussion that happened on the way home, and just tell you that I liked it a lot. was fucking awesome.

Also speaking of things I like, I'm re-reading Still Life with Woodpecker by Tom Robbins. I read it for the first time in high school, and recently picked it back up.

When we're incomplete, we're always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we're still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on - series polygamy - until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.
