I find him so creepy in relation to his female characters.^

Is it Notorious in which Ingrid Bergman played a psychiatrist, and got nothing but insults throughout the film? Granted, it was a different age, but Hitchcock's sexism is so rampant there, it practically bleeds off the screen. I also hated the way Jimmy Stewart's character in Vertigo kept insisting that her appearance couldn't possibly matter to Kim Novak. To me that argument positively reeks of "woman as object." And yet now I've read that it was his wife who often managed his films, which is even worse in regards to the sexism and self-hate.

I think the cinematography is wonderful, though.

I am not overly offended by the sexism of the 50s bc I don't see it much different today. As women we have pushed and forced our way into independence and empowerment, but to pretend we're viewed any differently by men is naive.

When did I become such a crotchety old woman?

My 12 year old cousin is staying with us for the week. She's only been here for like two hours total and I'm already annoyed. Lol! She's interfering with all of my routines.

Also the entire couch was free and she sat like two inches away from me. Omg. I know I'm awesome but let me breathe!

And it will steal your innocence
But it will not steal your substance
But you are not alone in this"

Yes, there are laws. That doesn't mean people(men) feel different. They are just required legally to act different.

That mans problems went so far beyond sexist. He was obsessed. He attempted to control everything about his leading lady/muse. Everything from what makeup and clothing they wore, to how many children they could have with their husbands. To say he was sexist, or had issues, simply does not cover it BUT I think his tortured hangups were part of genius. A really messed up part, but part no less.

I got the house to myself for the first time in 3 weeks . .. and I somehow managed to re-injure my foot in my sleep. It really hurts so I've done nothing but sit around all day. I haven't even gotten dressed yet.

I swear, there are like four people at work today. It is SO quiet in here.

Not conducive to work.

After days of 60+ degree weather, we are supposed to get 8-14 inches of snow tonight/tomorrow. Spring time in the rockies... le sigh.

I don't know if that is a happy or sad sigh. I love the craziness of the weather here, but I also want it to be spring for reals, but I also want to sleep in tomorrow (no way I'm driving in a foot of snow).
