A favourite quote for today.

Quote

Not sure why this is in my head today, but it is. It’s one of my favourite George Eliot quotes, from Middlemarch. It appears also in the Liberal Judaism siddur (prayerbook) as an option for before we say Kaddish (prayers for the dead).

“…the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half-owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.”

What do you do when half your heart is missing?

You find it, or you die trying.

First big laugh I’ve had in ages.

KAT
Is this your invoice?

B
Yeah.

I turn to leave.

B
(looking at my back, my shirt is sheer) Hey, is that a tattoo?

KAT
Huh? No, I don’t have any tattoos.

B
Really? You seem like one of those tattoos girls.

KAT
“One of those tattoos girls?” ..Ok..?

B
You don’t want one?

KAT
Well maybe sometime, but not yet.

B
No big rose on your breast?

KAT
Ha.

Later today passing back by..

KAT
Why am I one of those “tattoo” girls?

B
I dunno. You just look like one of those tattoo girls. You seem like you’d have a tattoo on your butt or something.

KAT
On my butt? I look like a “girl who has a tattoo on her butt”? what, like a nice girl with a dodgy butt tattoo?

B
(laughs) Yeah. No really. You ever been to Mexico?

KAT
Mexico? (laughs) No. I wanted to, though.

B
Well that’s what I mean..

KAT
What, that I’m the kind of girl who’s nice but goes to Tijuana and does something stupid?

B
(laughs) Well yeah.

KAT
(laughing) Thanks, buddy.

Crazy texans.

KAT
Hello?

MOTHER
Hi… there’s a movie on we’ve started to watch, was wondering if you’d seen it.

KAT
What is it?

MOTHER
It’s called The Shining..

KAT
Oh no no no. You don’t want to watch that -wait. You haven’t seen The Shining?

MOTHER
No. Your father’s watching it.

KAT
Dad won’t like it.

MOTHER
Why not?

KAT
It’s scary.

MOTHER
Scary how?

KAT
Haunted-hotel-ghosts-driving-you-to-kill-people kind of scary. It’s Stephen King. And Kubrick. And Jack Nicholson. It’s scary.

MOTHER
Oh. Peter? You don’t want to watch this one.

FATHER
Why not?

MOTHER
It’s got Jack Nicholson.
