1. I just saw Silver Linings Playbook.

    I really loved it, but I do not have words to adequately explain how anxious I feel right now. My stomach feels like it is knotted up around a bundle of irritated butterflies. It feels like getting bad news and going on a first date and making a mistake and driving down a dark road. It felt real, at least to me, and I liked how everyone was a little crazy in it, mostly because I think everyone is a little crazy.

    I totally understand why it has been nominated for so many awards. There is so much that was perfect - the Food Network demitasse glass, the way Bradley Cooper grabs Jennifer Lawrence’s ankle, the mom’s homemades.

    But seriously, I cannot shake the weird stressed feeling. Usually, my overemotional responses dissipate pretty quickly, but this one is lingering aggressively.
