You're so vain, you probably think this blog is about you

Tonight, I saw the movie "What Happens in Vegas". It was excellent! I often go to movies by myself; and this was a good one to see alone, as I laughed very loud, and even cried a little. Ashton Kutcher is phenomenal in his role as Jack. Cameron Diaz complements him with romantic-comedy perfection.

Unfortunately for me, life is not like a romantic-comedy. Yet, it could be. I mean. . . romantic-comedies are great because they are filled with fights, and mix-ups, and confusion. They are great because in the end, love wins. In the end, two people figure out that they are better together than they could ever be apart. And it may not be as easy as the scripts lead us to believe - but it is well worth the work.

This weekend, wow, this weekend. Exactly one year ago tonight was the first night I spent in my new apartment. And I find, tonight, that I am still just as sad. The problem. . . I am still heartbroken - but the reasons have changed. I know that one person who may or may not read this post - well, this person's thoughts bring to mind a famous Carly Simon song. . . and just to clarify , it isn't just about you - or him - or even me.

It's about the fact that I am one year forward from where I was and I am still no closer to bedding Ashton K. Well, there is always next year.

Goodnight, Gracie.
