It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

You Are a Bette!

You are a Bette -- "I must be strong"

Bettes are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

How to Get Along with Me

    Bettes are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

    How to Get Along with Me

    * * Stand up for yourself... and me.
    * * Be confident, strong, and direct.
    * * Don't gossip about me or betray my trust.
    * * Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.
    * * Give me space to be alone.
    * * Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don't flatter me.
    * * I often speak in an assertive way. Don't automatically assume it's a personal attack.
    * * When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that's just the way I am.

    What I Like About Being a Bette

    What's Hard About Being a Bette

    * * overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don't intend to
    * * being restless and impatient with others' incompetence
    * * sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it
    * * never forgetting injuries or injustices
    * * putting too much pressure on myself

O/~ Bette Davis eyesssss..... ;)

Yup, me too!

Have you ever seen this show?

No? It's a show?

It's a most awesome period piece set in the early 60s in NYC. Outstanding writing and the most nuanced acting you've ever seen. It's just about to end its second season.
Bittorrent that sucker--beware, it's one of those show where you actually have to pay attention, there is a lot said without any words in this one (facial expressions, reactions, camera shots, etc--no dialogue in those instances).
When I saw that you were Betty, I was like, whhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaat? This season she's a raging bitch, much more sympathetic last season. But January Jones who plays her is a stunning blond and excellent actor.

Oh, and the dialogue---half the time you'll be pissing your pants--and it's so under emphasized, a lot of the time it's missed until a second viewing. I watch each epi at least twice--they're that good and multi-layered.

I will definitely check it out. Thanks for the heads up!

But... I AM a raging bitch. :)
