30DHN: A Favourite Movie
For Day 2 of 30 Days Hath November, we are supposed to write about a favourite movie. Everyone knows my two favourites. Hedwig and the Angry Inch, because it’s tattooed on my arm. And Gone With the Wind, because duh, I’m totally Scarlett O’Hara.

How many stars are in this freaking slimey piece of feel-good cheese? Geena Davis. Jeff Goldblum. Jim Carrey. Damon Wayans. And introducing Julie Brown! Can you beat this musical number from the amazing Julie Brown?
Geena Davis turns in a surprisingly poignant (and way hot!) performance as the scorned nail artist Val. She catches her doctor-fiancee attempting to cheat on her and has perhaps one of the greatest songs of all time as she exacts her revenge:
And whenever I’m in need of cheering up, watching Geena Davis blow up a football in the microwave is just the ticket to make me feel rejuvenated!
