"We forgot about the flowers."


BENNINGTON -- Wasn't it Robby Benson who sat at the dinner table and told Lynn Holly Johnson, to the effect, Not trying is wondering the rest of your life if you gave up too soon -- who needs that?

Always loved that line. Getters get, or go down fighting for what they want.

Anything less is squat.

Go for it, they say, but on the face of it it's so goodamn ludicrous. Why give someone who has zero desire for you in their heart (or head) the satisfaction?

Maybe I should just hang out with the hookers for a few days. Hookers don't judge.

Or maybe I'm just exhausted.
