>Episodic Living

>Yesterday I had a super indulgent movie moment on the subway…so I’m going to share it with all of you.

Coldplay’s “Fix You” came on my ipod on shuffle and instead of automatically skipping it, I decided I’d give the song that made the world fall in love with Seth Cohen and Summer Roberts a second listen. In retrospect I don’t even remember if that song was played on “The OC” in reference to their relationship or not, but I think it was. It was for me at least. So I let myself listen and watch the people in the train; two asian children sharing a haagen daaz mini-pint (I know, it can’t be a mini pint, it’s either a pint or not…it wasn’t a pint), a drunk French teenager trying to keep conscious his even-drunker-passing-out French teenage friend (no doubt a result of World Cup festivities), and the opposing B train traveling on the next track. For some reason, then, I started crying. Well, not for some reason…it was like I was slowly making love to the city, gently and carefully, and trying not to hurt its feelings. I don’t know what my point is really…maybe it’s something about the song sung by the father of someone named after a fruit, or just that I’m letting myself let go of the city a little bit in anticipation of my eminent move (is it eminent? I think so). More on that later.

Now I have to go babysit for six children.

I’m not even kidding you.

Oh the things we’ll do for cash when we don’t have any.

PS: Remember when Seth and Summer made out upside down and everyone made fun of that episode? 
PPS: I have it on dvd, wanna come over later and watch it?
