    Was at the dermatologist today and there was a lady outside giving Christmas stuff to a staff person. I think it might have been one of the sales people. Not that fascinating but her accent. Anyone remember Coffee Talk from SNL? She sounded like that. 100% hilarious.

    I think she might have said "No big woop." It was amazing.

    We made it clear to our dog that if she decides to go insane in the blanket mines then she gets booted out of bed. Much better sleeping.

    Blossom doesn’t seem to get it. We went to bed exhausted and she immediately crawled onto my husbands chest and started growling at me
    Did Blossom catch you fucking? My dog gets grumpy when the wife and me kick him out of bed for some fun.

    No we literally just got into bed

    She does get really mad if we express any physical affection for each other to the point where she gets exiled when it’s time

    Bonita Applebum sounds like a matronly northern English stripper.

    Blossom is notoriously homophobic

    yes she barks and cries if we hug and/or kiss

    we imagine she's screaming LEAVE ROOM FOR JESUS at us

    spoilered for sad:
    she may have witnessed some kind of abuse and that's what she thinks we're doing

    I usually go to bed after my wife and the dogs and every night when I get in hugo curls up against my chest, rests his head under my chin and lets out a long sigh. Its basically the best part of my day.

    I'm enjoying DJ Format - We Know Something You Don'T Know in how confidently early 90s it is. Very Bonita Applebaum

    My guess is that it's a SumJudge song

    it has the line "Unabomb will set the whole world on fire!" so you know it's pure uncut chat

    I wouldn't be shocked if that was at the tail end of mine. It's my favourite DJ format track

    Homogeneous distribution of your varieties of amuse-gueule

    On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
    Five golden rings
    Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
    Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
    Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
    One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
    In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
    One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
    One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
    In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

    its weird when u misjudge peoples age tho we are at the age where age doesnt matter but its weird when ppl seem way more mature than you are younger than you and you're like whoa

    also something about being short makes me feel like tall ppl seem older sometimes

    hmmm should i try to get a different apartment

    what should i do with my apartment

    there are so many deals
    but moving sucks

    even tho im not super settled here and it wouldnt be that bad honestly

    how much can i realistically ask my landlord for a discount, hmm... i guess i looked up what they rented similar units for the other month and i could at least ask for that
    but also i could move somewhere with a washer dryer

    I've done the recreational thing, I might not have time to play it but I bought a video game thus a quickening occurs and I absorb all the potential fun I'd have with it in other timelines.

    I remember the visceral excitement of purchasing a new video game as a younger person. Just like tearing the box open and pouring through the manual on the drive home, bargaining with my brothers so I could use the computer immediately when we got home

    My brother was so excited by Starcraft broodwar he got up at 3 am and quietly unwrapped it (xmas present) and played it until sunrise

    The physicality of video game accoutrements in the pre-broadband times were definitely worth something on their own. The Starcraft manual was a fucking book!!!

    A kid in my sixth grade class would just sketch out protoss all day from the manual. It was so cool. He was one of the few people allowed to play games that had satan in them like Diablo or books like Harry Potter.
    Only perk of atheist family was that we had Diablo II on the BLUEBERRY iMac the day it came out.

    I will allow myself to be transparent about the methodology of how I tier what ought to be incomparable matters of taste

    apart from THE BIBLE, poetry is of course top tier, being the pinnacle of the attempt (that is, if you could crack open heads in the noosphere, I suspect what would fall out would look more like poetry than prose)

    Nonfiction is second-best, being subdivided into pure information > opinion/conjecture/analysis > creative nonfiction

    Finally I think genre fiction (specifically, sci-fi rom-coms) is actually better than literary fiction, which is so bourgeois and monotonous at this point as to be beyond parody, where we can now parody the reviews ("...a stunning, searing debut... the musicality of Joyce with the painter's eye of James...")
