I'm Sticking With Chateau

Computer-generated aliens attach jumper cables to the ears of the Energizer Bunny so that their ailing space ship can depart Earth and return to its own planet.
Small white text at the bottom of the screen identifies this situation as a "Dramatization".

Oh god, I'm sad.

Inertia

here's this line from an old TV show that no one (besides R because he knows every line ever said on television/in movies) would remember. I have no idea why I remember it. Something about seeing the same people over and over and just what, exactly, is the point of that? Is God running out of people to cast as the extras in your life? Why are the people you didn't like the first time through reappearing, getting recycled?

Thinking about this lately, or at least some variation of it. Wondering why old boyfriends and friends always seem to return when you least expect them, optimistic about that second chance that never really works out. This used to seem somehow exciting or validating, but now it just feels like the plot of some horror movie where brain eating zombies keep coming back from the dead.

Genius

I tend to use the phrase, "South Park did an episode about that," as a means of validating and showing approval for an idea.

Get Off The Internet

Will it always be like this? Wondering how people make friends with one another, just like that? It feels too much like being 14 years old and trying to figure out how sex works, knowing that it happens all the time, that it's perfectly normal, and despite spending so much time imagining it, you can't actually ever imagine it will happen, you can't imagine how it would happen.

Usually I don't pay much attention to personality tests, but the other day I took one and the results said that I was equal parts schizoid (someone who doesn't hang arond others and doesn't want to) and avoidant (someone who doesn't hang around others but does really want to) and I couldn't help thinking that the two of those together is contradictory, nonsensical and completely true.

It Was a Spin-Off of The Cosby Show, Afterall

Now that I'm older, I realize that A Different World is just about a bunch of white people at college.

Say...

Have you ever noticed how hard it is sometimes to tell the difference between a decision of recklessness and one of self-preservation?

I wonder with widening eyes and a quickened heartbeat: Who does stuff like this?

Me. Apparently.
