my coworkers are zombies

so i found a roll of bright orange stickers that say 50% Less CARBS Per Slice outside my neighborhood grocery store. low-carb bread is one of the more hilarious food ideas ever (right up there with low-fat fat), and i was particularly charmed by the bad grammar and the lovely shade of orange. so obv...

umm, so back to the tea party....i was trying to visualize said event and i found that tea-time in the 5th dimension is actually quite easy to visualize, as long as you put your own frame of reference *inside* the teacup, and think of the tea as being around the cup instead of contained within. The ...

hm. i think that i'm usually the one using the pathetic break-up lines. i usually give people more than good reason to break up with me, without having to make up any kind of flimsy reasons. i really do suck at breaking up with people. but, then, is there a good way? really? i mean, what're the REAL...

Does anyone know where the non-flaky men have gotten to? sorry, hon, that's all i'm gettin, too. somehow my v-days always end up being these really intense drama-fests. with ultimatums and confessions of love from unsuspecting sources and nude dance-performances and scenes reminiscent of a 1920s op...

i'm with john on all-o-dat. most especially the part about not buying guitars and guitar-related thingys on the web. it really isn't easier, and unless you've got some kind of need to receive and return a lot of music equipment from UPS it's likely to end in tragedy. ok, maybe tragedy's a bit strong...

agreed on all points. but, just out of curiosity, why the venting now? did they release the new ultra-secret kurt cobain diary or the very first practice session recordings ever or some other new publicity nightmare like that, which i cleverly managed to avoid hearing about by being a gimpy hermit?

For me, sometimes I'd rather have it left unsaid. The mystery about it usually adds to my enjoyment of a song. I would rather make up a story about a song, that way it has more meaning to me. hmmmmm, yes. for instance, i'm relatively sure that my interpretation of the giant fork and spoon line in s...

I can't get past the casting of Frodo. Hobbits are supposed to be sort of chunky, or at least a little stout, not all treacle-drenched, doe-eyed, sap-oozing little ankle-biteing shitheels. If he made that fucking, "oh my heart is swelling, oh Sam, you scamp!" face one more time I was going to look ...
