saturday stuff

Saturday Aug 4, 2007

You know what I hate more than working on a Saturday?

Being in the office by 7 for a couple of hours, coming home for a few hours, and then having to come back into the office in the afternoon for a few hours. That blows. Destroys the whole day. Plus destroyed any potential napping time.

Although I did get given a free case of some girly fizzy blood orange vodka type drink from my brother in law. So the plan for my Saturday night is watch Empire Records, drink as much sugary alcohol as I can stand (or until I can’t stand), browse youporn and then pass out.

And because I have the attention span of gnat tonight below are two posts that I’ve found recently that make me sad that I could either never write something as beautiful as Audrey did or that I could meet the type of boy who would do the first post like Sarah Brown.

“One night in college, I woke up alone in my dorm room, sweaty and shaking from a horrible dream. It was so terrifying that several minutes later, I still couldn’t turn off the light and go back to sleep, so I called my boyfriend, who went to a different college in a different town.

I woke him cold from a dead sleep, and told him I’d had a bad dream. The minute I said it out loud, I realized what a baby I sounded like, but without missing a beat, he cleared his throat and said, “Okay, lie back down. You can leave the light on if you want. Pretend like all the guys in Pavement are hanging out in your dorm room. Don’t let Malkmus too close to the bed. Now pretend like Yo La Tengo is there too. Ira’s just sitting there on your desk, feet on the chair, talking to Kim Deal. Frank Black is there too, but he’s on the other side of the room, reading the book titles off your shelf. Bob Pollard is drinking all of your beers. Thurston Moore is playing 20 Questions with MCA. Beck is chatting up Laura Ballance. Everyone’s just hanging out, chilling. And right by the door, standing guard, is Kim Gordon. And sweetheart, nothing is coming through that door, because nobody wants to fuck with Kim Gordon.”

Audrey from Audrey and the Bad Apples wrote the below after her mother had passed away recently and even though I saved it a few weeks ago it still hurts my heart when I read it.

“How the strength of a mother’s love could reach out from one side of the world to the other and rock you to sleep. It’s the place deep inside herself where we she took us the instant we were created and said, “Here. This room is our room. No matter where I go, you can always find me here.”

Mark:

Your Sarah Brown link is broken. How was Ash?

Oh, and YouPorn? Gross.

Link should be okay now.

Ash was absolutely fantastic. At one point they played Jack Names the Planets and Kung Fu, and I look over at Chesty and kinda went, yeah, this is pretty much tops.

Prude.

Huh? Nah. In fact, I was just contemplating a post on the hilarity value of bad Flickr porn. Youporn, by contrast, seems either a) tacky b) not tacky enough. Maybe this is the opinion of a 56k user who doesn’t watch video, but prove me wrong, y’know?

Youporn is indeed tacky, and you have to dodge the fetish stuff that pops up and it’s useless if you’re on a 56k connection.

And when I think of porn tasteful isn’t really the first word I’d use to describe it, you know?

Different strokes and all that (pun not intended)

A friend of mine sent me the weirdest youporn link of two guys dressed like pterodactyl’s getting it on with a chick. It was very strange.

Ewww. Weird porn just squicks me out.

Man, I put in a comment yesterday but it didn’t come up. Blogger comments interface sucks.

Anyway, it was just some crap about pterodactyl porn being an internet meme now.

Personally, though, I think all porn is weird. I mean, even standard porn looks nothing like actual sex that people really have.
