Hi! I’m Jen! I live in San Francisco with my two cats, Fred & Ethel, lots of books, and a growing collection of terrariums, Homies and half-completed craft projects. I love spy novels, Christmas in cold places, exposed brick, dive bars and my view across the bay:
And why Sunday Undies, you ask?
I love When Harry Met Sally. It’s one of my top 10 favorite movies, the others being:
- Crimes and Misdemeanors
- The Philadelphia Story
- Blade Runner
- Annie Hall
- Before Sunset
- The Bourne Identity
- All John Hughes’ films
- Rear Window
- Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House
In any case, my favorite scene from When Harry Met Sally is when they’re driving to New York from Chicago and are in a diner and Sally is explaining why she broke up with her boyfriend Sheldon.
HARRY: Obviously you haven’t had great sex yet. [Enters diner; Sally follows] Two, please.
SALLY: Yes I have.
HARRY: No you haven’t.
SALLY: It just so happens that I have had plenty of good sex.
HARRY: With whom?
HARRY: With whom did you have this great sex?
SALLY: I’m not going to tell you that.
HARRY: Fine, don’t tell me.
SALLY: Shel Gordon.
HARRY: Shel? Sheldon? No. No, you did not have great sex with Sheldon.
SALLY: I did too.
HARRY: No you didn’t. A Sheldon can do your income taxes. If you need a root canal, Sheldon’s your man. But humpin’ and pumpin’ is not Sheldon’s strong suit. It’s the name. Do it to me,Sheldon. You’re an animal, Sheldon. Ride me big Sheldon. Doesn’t work.
[Ordering scene w/ waitress]
HARRY: So how come you broke up with Sheldon?
SALLY: How do you know we broke up?
HARRY: Because if you didn’t break up you wouldn’t be here with me. You’d be off with Sheldon the wonder-schlong.
SALLY: First of all, I am not with you. And second of all, it is none of your business why we broke up.
HARRY: You’re right, you’re right; I don’t wanna know.
SALLY: Well, if you must know, it’s because he was very jealous and I had these days of the week underpants.
HARRY: [Makes buzzer sound]. I’m sorry. I need a judge’s ruling on this. Days of the week underpants?
SALLY: Yes. They had the days of the week on them and I thought they were sort of funny. And then one day Sheldon says to me, “You never wear Sunday.” He’s all suspicious, “Where was Sunday? Where had I left Sunday?” And I told him and he didn’t believe me.
SALLY: They don’t make Sunday.
HARRY: Why not?
SALLY: Because of God.
So, as a big days of the week anything fan, and because of God, I thought called my site SundayUndies way back in, oh, 2004!, and while sometimes I feel I’ve outgrown the title, I don’t mind enough to change it.
