All I wanted to do was be a princess for a day

I'm still a little bit sore today.
My (burnt) back doesn't hurt that much. The photo (see below) just looks bad.
While playing slow-pitch all weekend I also managed to tear up my leg. I love scratches and scars and all that fun stuff. I'm beginning to understand that I thrive on pain. It's intense. For example, I took a line drive in my forearm on Sunday and now it's rather bruised. Fabulous. I'd do it all again next weekend if i could. (Oh, and just as an FYI - I got the out at first. Play the ball first, feel pain later.)

But, I digress. The title of this post is taken from the film Better than Sex. It's an Australian film that, summed up nicely, is 3 days in the life of a 1 night stand. I really enjoyed it. The internal monologue that goes along with it was especially cool because it's everything you want to say to your partner when you're having sex with them but you're terrified that they'll see you as too controlling or difficult. In reality, however, wouldn't you rather have your partner happy and satisfied?
The main male character was played by David Wenham who also played Faramir in Lord of the Rings. Don't you think he looks better with shorter hair? I have to admit that I swooned - bit time. Mostly for the character he played, but looking at him on screen for 90 minutes wasn't difficult either. The female character, Carole (played by Imelda Corcoran) was great as well. She was just so cute - and natural! I loved it.

I love this photo from the movie:
