Still Up, Sick as a Dog...  
...for whatever unknown reason.

So I thought I'd share this conversation I had with my mother tonight as we were watching a documentary about how Elvis Presley helped change the face of the United States.

Man being interviewed on television: There was a raw sexuality to Elvis. Not just in his music but in his movements. It wasn't subtle.

Cut to footage of Elvis on the Ed Sullivan show. He has his guitar hanging in front of his body, he is wearing chinos, a shirt and a jacket. And he is moving his legs in that jittery movement he is famous for but that, to me, always looked like he was trying to make sure he didn't pee in his socks.

Me, to my mother: You people were seriously deprived.

Mom: What? Why?

Me: That was raw sexuality?

Mom: It was back then. Before that when people came on stage to sing, they stood absolutely still. Like statues.

Me: Like I said. Seriously deprived. I mean just last Friday, dozens and dozens of people apparently got to see Alex Cabot have sex on 'Conviction'. [grimace]

Mom: ... ... ...

Mom, sounding honestly confused: Did she break a sweat?

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL *snort* LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Thank God for my mother!

Anyway, I'm off to see if I can manage some sleep now that I've been up all night sick.

Twoodles.

Alex having sex was hot, but then, they destroyed her character.

Miserable show.

Hee, that story definitely brightened my day a bit.

And "*grimace*" is right on the Alex Desk!sex scene. It was painful. Two out of the three women on that show are rather frustrating characters, and Alex is definitely one of them. >_>

*cackles* Or as shatterpath said, like he was trying to readjust his testicles without touching them....

You may not believe this, but I haven't watched Conviction except for the first episode. I watched about 2 minutes of it last week before I went ugh and turned it off.

::goes into whine mode:: Eeeeerrrrriiiiiiiiiiinnnnn I haven't talked to you in FOREVER! Call? IM? Something?

hahaha sex on desk that bad huh? I heard alex/olivia fans screaming all over the world. I now know why. I think you should write another sex on desk scene or any fan fic for that matter. Of course write AFTER you get better. Get well soon. Rest, fluids, etc.
