it would be comedy gold

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

I would love to see a conversation between Supernatural’s Sam Winchester and Avengers movie!verse Bruce Banner. Sam: “I see Lucifer; sometimes he talks to me.” Bruce: “I turn into an enormous green rage monster; ditto.” Sam: “Once I started an apocalypse.” Bruce: “Once I threw a tank into space.” Sam: “We’re not codependent; we’re family.” […]

DAY 11: “pre-weekending”

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

“Pre-Weekending” — when you do stuff that was on your weekend to-do list *before* the weekend, for the purposes of: 1. fooling your brain into thinking you are getting time off 2. freeing time on your *actual* weekend for MORE SLEEP I have been pre-weekending for two days now — one more day of work […]

“It’s not a radio.” Yes, that’s true. It’s not a radio. That is one solidly true sentence made up of four words. The four words that I wrote today. ::sigh::
