Pathetic

Just finished watching season 2 of Dance Academy. I know it's lame but I still cried a bucket load of tears during the (very sad) second last episode. Do you think less of me?

    1. Blame my e-ness. I even feel empathy towards thin, imaginary characters.

    2. oh dear. Things are worse than we all thought.

      Could you watch it with Andrew? Would that bring some objectivity?

  2. I was tearing up during last ep. We had missed the previous one. I was shocked and was reminding myself they aren't real people.

    1. 'We'? Who is 'we'? Your girls aren't old enough yet, are they?

      Surely not Rob?

      [Glad I'm not alone. I knew the last couple of eps would be sad so I waited till Andrew was out for the night. I didn't want him to think less of me.]

    2. Oldest (8) has been watching. I wasn't really keen on her watching it but pretty much gave in because I liked it. I had no idea what was coming and was very surprised.

  4. I went to a thing on Aristotle and screenwriting this week. Plato agrees that it's pathetic, and wanted to ban poetry/drama. Aristotle thought poetry/drama was a machine for producing catharsis and anamnesis, unforgetting of things/experiences that have disappeared into the background for you. The speaker talked about crying at the end of Field of Dreams, not because it was a convincing movie, but because of recognizing sons love their fathers, and are loved by their fathers, which he knew because of his relationship with his father.
