words o wisdom.

Matthew McConaughey interviews are amazing.  He is so wack.  I think Camilla was just asking for it, 'cause she knew full well he did yoga on picnic tables, and uncalled for shirtless pushups in front of her poor foreign mother on the beach, who now knows: white people. are. crazy.
Anyway enjoy this excerpt from "their" recent birthing experience interview:
Matthew: "contractions started kicking in and we found a great rhythm. We had a 14 hour session, her and i did. I sat there with her, right between her legs. We got tribal on it. We danced to it. I was DJing this native Brazilian music."
Camilla: "For 14 hours!"
Matthew: "We were jamming! she was sweating, no painkiller, let's go....We'd been up for 40-something hours, and we went from dead tired to a really steadfast, lets handle this ...let's stay in the rhythm. Don't let this contraction be more than you!"
Don't let the contraction be more than you?!?  How about not shoving a surgical glove down his throat be more than you?  My favorite part was when the interviewer asked "what's with all this 'we' talk?"(ooooh snap). Matthew then went on to discuss, in a later interview, the placenta he planned to bury: 
"its going to be in the orchards and it's going to bear some wonderful fruit. While in Australia...the aboriginal tribes had a 'placenta tree' on the river. All the placentas went under that one tree, and it was this huge behemoth of just health and strength."
My husband knows that if he were ever to act even...a little bit this way while i was in labor, i would eat him alive (....or at least bury him alive....under that creepy afterbirth tree). 
Oh Matt.  Congrats, really.  You just keep "makin' a livin' with your life and a life with your livin' cuz when the J's for just and the K's for keep, that's livin'!" (another one of Matty McC's delicious quotes). Oh and Matt, when you get a chance, send me a slice of that placenta pie.  I could sure use a "behemoth" of something good.

What a freakin' weirdo-if Dan wanted to keep my placentas, I would have smacked him upside the head.
