Had rambly lounge conversation with katie and rebecca this morning, wound up talking about some of my experiences playing music with various people... somehow I think I stumbled into some big, underlying but indistinct theme in the way I size up people, whether targets of romantic intentions or not. Something about whether someone is accustomed to being really in what they're doing, (as a hobby, for work, whatever) willing to be consumed by it to some extent, taking it dead serious even at the same time as happily accepting that it (I'm thinking here of math and music in particular) is ultimately pointless.

As corny as it is, it reminded me of a few lines of Aaron Sorkin's:

DANA

The truth is I have a job that involves me and stimulates me and rewards me and takes up a lot of my time. I'm not willing to do my job just a little bit, I want to do all of it. It's part of me and I'm different without it. And that is who I am, and that is who you need to love. (BEAT) Except it won't work.

Yes it will.

DANA

It won't.

CASEY

Say it just like that.

DANA

It won't.

Dana, any man who hears that and doesn't say "For a woman like you, for a person, for you, I will take whatever time you can give me and be grateful all my life", any man who hears that and doesn't throw you down on the nearest flat surface, is just taking up space for the rest of us.
