and one of my favorite quotes about relationships...
Rob - Just shut up, please, I'm trying to explain, okay? That other girl, or other women, whatever, I was thinking that they are just fantasies, you know, and they always seem really great because there are never any problems, and if there are they are cute problems like we bought each other the same Christmas present or she wants to go see a movie I've already seen, you know? And then I come home and you and I have real problems and you don't want to see the movie I wanna see, period. There's no lingerie...
Laura - I have lingerie!
Rob - Yes you do. You have great lingerie but you also have cotton underwear that's been washed a thousand times and its hanging on the thing and ... and they have it too just I don't have to see it because it's not the fantasy ... do you understand? I'm tired of the fantasy because it doesn't really exist and there are never really any surprises and it never really...
Laura - Delivers?
Rob - Delivers. Right.
It captures that idea of a relationship that can never compare to real life. Enjoying life to fullest isn't about lamenting for an ideal relationship that doesn't exist, it's about being with the people in your life right here and right now. It's about two people walking down the same road and leaning on each other when there are bumps in the road.
I'm also a very good listener. Coming from the world of psychology, I understand how important it is to vent. I am surprisingly good at being patient with my kids. In fact, I'm usually pretty good at making kids smile.
Most of the movies that catch and hold my attention are in the fantasy and sci-fi genres. I definitely enjoy action thrill rides and most comedy movies.
I have a long list of TV shows that I try (and mostly fail) to keep up with and I've noticed a pattern of cop dramas in my list. I'm currently watching Breaking Bad, HIMYM, and Continuum. I'm waiting for new episodes of Newsroom, Game of Thrones, and Walking Dead to be available somewhere besides cable.
Musical tastes really vary, but I listen to rock, techno and ambient music the most.
Update: lately I've been listening to a lot of dubstep :)
