I need a hug. A real one. One from a person who actually, genuinely cares. Who will hold you like they actually enjoy having you near them. Next to them. Not a friend hug. Not an acquaintance hug. Not a as-far-apart-as-possible, over-a-wall, at-arms-length hug. But a real one. A full-fledged, back-patting, hair-stroking, murmuring-soothing-reassurances-in-my-ear hug. I need one.
In another reality, Bob awoke with a start, the dream already fading from his memory. There was something about firing a gun, or was it some kind of tablet computer...? And who was the man? It had seemed so real. Bob rose from the bed, grabbed his baritone sax, and flew out the bedroom window and away into the bright blue Tuesday morning sky.
Hercule noticed the iPad and wondered if there was an app that could help him with his exterminator duties. He snatched the device with a "yoink" and ran away, leaving the front door and scampering around the corner of the house, his canisters and spray nozzles clinking and clanking as he ran.
One cautious step at a time, Hercule inched across the porch as he listened for the the tiny legs of insects and rodents scamper behind the door. As he reached for the door knob he couldn't help but think about that scene from Home Alone with Joe Pesci, wondering if he might meet the same fate.
Hey I'll start a story and people can add a line or two at a time.
It wasn't glamorous being an exterminator, but Hercule Jones was the kind of man who took his work seriously. He always took the time to prepare his tools with meticulous precision. He had sprayers, poisons, and traps of all shapes and sizes, arranged on various belts and harnesses around his waist, torso, and shoulders. Locked and loaded. He approached the front door of the house.
Jee you're having a bad day? well, it could be worse... you could be putting in 70 hours a week at work, not had an entire weekend off in the past month even though other employees have mandatory furlough and go to Paris but you do not have the means to go, and despite working your keister off to get paid you are getting kicked out of your home by your cheating unremorseful ex-husband.. and also the cat has diarrhea. When not working, at least you are not constantly cleaning up sh*t, literally and figuratively speaking. But, nobody cares, and this is a message for no one because I have no-one to complain to because I am a 28 year old cat lady who works and cleans up sh*t and is about to move back in with the 'rents. That is all.
twitter would be fantastic. wouldn't the user profiles defeat the randomness? actually, if it dumped into twitter, one wouldn't be leaving messages for no one....but that's neither here nor there...because...well...i like twits ;)
Generating complexity for complexity's sake is similar to shouting complete nonsense at the top of your voice. Both are embarrassments that are best avoided, but when you are young it is the best way to attract attention.
Just as there is a 'Name' input, I think there should be a 'Replying To' box in case you are responding to a comment that is several boxes down on the page. And if you leave it empty then it doesn't show up in your comment. And I'd be Donatello if I could be any Ninja Turtle.
I still feel like the Patriots haven't really played anyone, except maybe Dallas and Washington, and a streaky San Diego team. Its hard for me to believe the NFL is so weak this year, its gotten so bad that the horrible managment style in Detriot of picking wide recievers seems to be working. Regardless of that, I am really looking forward to the showdown on Sunday, more so than any regular season game I can remember.
Its fucked up that the Patriots are just that good. Its more fucked up that their opponents aren't prepared enough on game day for this to not happen. This is professional football with salary caps so the range of talent should be close to equal.
Not a very competitive WS, but an overall entertaining playoff run for the Sox. I will refrain from becoming a permanent fixture on the bandwagon, but I will begin to take more notice of the sport and the Sox. Congratulations Red Sox Nation! Job well done!
The game sold over 80,000 tickets, but there were reports that a good portion of the crowd were Americans. Apparently around 250,000 Americans live in the UK. After seeing Wimbley's field ripped to shreds destroying the soccer-made field, I believe the British will not be buying into the sport.
In real life a giant could defeat a dolphin (on land) ... in football, i imagine the game will be mediocre and i wonder how many empty seats there will be in the stadium. do they really like usa football over there? i doubt it.
Kid A is the fourth album by the English rock band Radiohead, released on 2 October 2000 in the United Kingdom and on 3 October 2000 in the United States and Canada. A commercial success worldwide, Kid A went platinum in its first week of release in the United Kingdom. Despite the lack of an official single or video as publicity, Kid A became the only Radiohead release to debut at #1 in the United States. This success was credited variously to a unique marketing campaign, the early Internet leak of the album, or anticipation after the band's previous album, OK Computer (1997).
Kid A was recorded in Paris
One cannot step in the same river twice, as it is never the same river. In the same way, the person stepping into the river is not the same person either. Change is the nature of all things. In fact, the only thing that does not change is the constant state of flux in the sea of chaos, ipso facto.
I feel that a subject line would really lower the quality of the site. If you want to turn fatfold into some trashy 'Subject line' site, be my guest, but if you have any sort of class you'll fight the powers that be and resist the urge to become another 'wed designer' sheep.
