Cheesecake theater

"Look me in the heart and unbreak broken" - Tegan...or Sara?

On Monday Jodi and I discovered that cheesecake is the perfect movie theater snack.

*spoiler alert!!!* We saw The Break-Up, with Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn. Yes, it was funny, but 'real-life' funny, not The Wedding Crashers-pee-in-your-pants funny. And it wasn't quite what I expected...I thought it would be an amusing romantic know the kind, where boy and girl fall for each other, go through a rough-albeit-laughable patch and come out happy in the end. Because that's how movies should be, since real life doesn't work that way. But it was like real sort of picked up right where most romantic comedies leave off, and show the disintegration of a relationship and how life just continues, with no happy ending or tying up of loose ends. And it ends with the painful inevitable conversation that anyone who has ever run into an ex has had, the one where you smile with your mouth and tell each other how great you look and try really hard to make your voice show how happy you are then promise to keep in touch while you know deep down that you won't. Ouch.
