When I think about you, I touch myself

In honor of Jared Leto pronouncing his gayitude (and before he retracts it), I'm offering up one of my favorite quotes from the show that made me pine for him as much as Angela did.
Sometimes it seems like we're all living in some kind of prison, and the crime is how much we all hate ourselves. It's good to get really dressed up once in a while and admit the truth -- that when you really look closely, people are so strange and so complicated that they're actually beautiful. Possibly even me.
The quote is from Angela and not Jordan, as you know. But she was the heart and soul of the show, plus Jordan never really made any sense, did he? Just stuff like this:
Jordan: Why are you like this?
Angela: Like what?
Jordan: Like how you are.
Angela: How am I?
Ahhhh Angela, you did earnest right. Not like that doe-eyed atrocity, Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Is it wrong that I have this picture in a frame on my nightstand? (When you 'google images' Jared Leto this photo is on the front page in my blog archives. How embarrassing! Not really. Purrr.)

I just checked that, Charlie. I hadn't noticed, but I totally snagged that picture from YOU! And dude, did you just purr?

Ooh Jared Leto. Hope he wasn't just kidding around.

OH ... MY .... BRAD!

Jared Leto is gay? Jared? Gay!

Hephaistion. My Hephaistion?

In the words of our beloved TOA in his recent Send me an Angel post.

'Hold. Me. Back.'

Michael Guy said... I touch you while you touch yourself touching him? Work with me; it's existential.

I love myself
I want you to love me
When I'm feelin' down
I want you above me
I search myself
I want you to find me
I forget myself
I want you to remind me

I don't want anybody else
When I think about you
I touch myself
I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

You're the one who makes me happy honey
You're the sun who makes me shine
When you're around I'm always laughing
I want to make you mine

I close my eyes
And see you before me
Think I would die
If you were to ignore me
A fool could see
Just how much I adore you
I get down on my knees
I'd do anything for you

I don't want anybody else
When I think about you
I touch myself
I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no ...

Yes, you heard right...I purred. :)
