Is It Just The Girlie Bits That Make Us The Cry-Baby Sex?

I've written about the Lifetime network before and it seems the thing they do best is crank out chick flicks that either make you cry or want to turn in your boyfriend for one like the male lead in the movie they happen to be showing.

Today was no exception. While loafing around Virginia Beach for the weekend, I got sucked in. First it was The Jane Austen Book Club, which I totally loved, even though I couldn't remember a damn thing from any of the Jane Austen books I've read (which only means I'll have to re-read them). And the second movie was Lucky 7, with Patrick Dempsey. And of course, he was the perfect male in every way. I mean, how can you go wrong with Patrick Dempsey?

Ed was gone (I don't even know where he went but I was willing him to stay away) during the entire Jane Austen Book Club movie. He came back to the truck halfway through the second flick.

I was alternately laughing, crying, smiling and sighing as I watched, scene after scene, the boy likes girl, boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back story. Every time Ed heard a sigh or an audible pre-cry whimper, he turned my way. I made the mistake of looking over at him, which I suppose gave him non-verbal permission to voice his thoughts.

"Hmmph, Lifetime Network." he snorted. "Their logo should be a vagina."

Yeah, um, I don't think that would make it past the network censors.
