Forever is a long time

cake

What gets me more choked up than a story about two people in love who aren’t able to be together?

Well, there’s that horrible anti-smoking commercial where the little boy can’t find his mother and begins to cry.  That kills me.  What kind of mother lets her baby do a commercial like that where he’s being emotionally tortured just to make a buck to sock away for college?  I don’t even smoke and I had to be subjected to that.

Uhem. Anyway…

Celeste & Jesse Forever

Celeste & Jesse Forever, a film starring Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg is that kind of movie – a couple marries young but eventually decides to separate and they both have trouble cutting the cord.

The movie also stars Elijah Wood and Chris Messina (another favorite of mine).

I watched it as my unconscious husband lay snoozing against my butt one night.  I realize this movie has been out for a while.  I tend to notice things after everyone else does.  If you haven’t seen it you should.  It’s a romantic dramady that’ll probably make you root for Celeste and Jesse staying together (if you’re a cheesy, sucker-for-love like me), otherwise you’ll want Samberg’s character to stay with the hot Belgian chick he starts dating.  I don’t want to ruin the ending so I’ll try not to say too much more.

You just can’t have your cake and eat it, too.  A lesson we’ve probably all learned at one point or another.

(Doesn’t that cake look good?  Here’s the recipe.)
