"once upon a time, when the world was new, there were three sexes instead of two. they were men and women attached back to back—man + man, man + woman, and woman + woman. but the gods disapproved, so thor wanted to kill them all w/ his hammer...zeus said NO—he would simply split them in half w/ his thunderbolts! so he did, and then there were 2 sexes—man & woman...so now we all wander the earth looking for our other HALF."
—adapted from hedwig and the angry inch
i'm an idealist and a romantic. i like the idea of someone made just for you. i like hedwig and the angry inch, which is about a gay transvestite rockstar. my friend katie and i had dinner-and-a-movie dates in college; one of my fondest memories is when we ate cheap sushi at harris teeter (a grocery store), dug her car out of the snowstorm outside, watched hedwig and probably knitted.
