But this made me want to watch the film version (which
i realize is not the same quality or charm of the theatrical version, but it's ready at hand and does show off the finer points of one of my guilty pleasures, who i also happen to think would be an excellent match for Tara. i mean really, this is a beautiful man.).
Anyway, back to my pitiful enamorment (newly created word, please use widely) of the mysterious, fantabulous Phantom. Well, really, most any dark, mystic, passionate, fictionate (another one we should Websterize) alpha-type male character will do. It's sad. Really it is.
as i endeavor to learn more about myself, i realize that encouraging my psyche to embrace more realistic thoughts is quite futile. My Myers-Briggs type (personality assessment based on the work of Jung) is INFP. The Kiersey Temperament analysis of this type is that i'm an Idealist (uh, well, sure), and by nature a hopeless romantic.
At times, it would be nice to be firmly rooted in the here and now. Luckily i also have NT tendencies, which makes me partially Rational.
