It has been a while, gentle readers, hasn’t it?
This is partly because I’ve been run off my feet. It is also because I’ve been a bit lost for words. It is true that when we don’t keep up our good (or bad) habits, we fall out of them. So there’s that. But it’s also a question of integrity.
Lately I’ve been watching this show Girls. It’s something I’m selfish about…I don’t share it with Chris, not because of the presumably girly nature of the show itself (Chris was a die-hard Desperate Housewives fan for years. True story.). Anyway, it’s not even just a girly show. But it does bring up a lot of emotional junk for me. I started watching it, incidentally, because there is a character named Shoshana, and as many of you know, one of my besties is named Shoshana. Not an uncommon name, but I only know just the one. My Shoshana is also a little crazy, but more in a Liz-Lemon-as-schoolteacher sort of way, not in the way of Girls‘ Shoshana. And I miss her a lot, a lot of the time. There are many other reasons I heart this show, including that the main character (who happens to be played by the writer/director of the same show, the ridiculously talented Lena Dunham) is so fantastically flawed I can completely relate to her. In fact, the likenesses between us are frightening…our differences lie only in what we are and aren’t shameless about. I really need to take a step back from my friends on the small screen.
