a friend for eg

I really don't like the movie Must Love Dogs. Except for the parts with John Cusack and the parts with Diane Lane. But not the parts when they're together. It never makes sense to me. Except the scene when she runs out of the beauty parlor in the middle of a manicure/pedicure to talk to him and he's with another woman.

There is a point to all this. Early on in the movie, Diane Lane's character Sarah is told by her family that it's time that she stop being alone. One of her sisters says something like "Don't you have a friend for Sarah?" And Sarah's response is "A friend for Sarah. I sound like an episode of Little House on the Prairie."

I steal this line every once in a while. I wouldn't have to if people would just believe I have friends and a social life. Tonight I had a dinner with lots of friends. Or at least a few friends and a few acquaintences. But I think one could be a new friend, so. . . what was the point of all this? Mostly to say that sometimes I steal a line from a movie that no one else will ever recognize. It's not like it's Say Anything.

I hate that movie. And you know how I feel about JC. Also, Serendipity.

For my part, I don't want to buy anything, sell anything, or process anything.

I can't wait to hear about the dinner...and you failed to mention that the dinner was at your place and that you wowed everyone with your mad cooking skills.

Isn't the care and keeping of friends the darnest thing? I'm impressed you can throw a dinner party (yes, a dinner party--people + dinner=dinner party). You domestic goddess, you. Also, social mavan. Both.
