R.I.P.

1. From today's Dear Abby -

"Dear Abby: After 23 years of what I thought was a happy marriage, I came home and caught my husband, "Wes," in bed having sex with my brother. It was a shock, to say the least."

The husband claims amnesia, saying he was at a bar with the brother when they were given a pill "of unknown origin." The woman loves "Wes" and wants to make the marriage work, but she can't seem to get the picture of her brother....anyway, she can't get it out of her head. What can she do to forget?

Abby reccommends the Straight Spouse Network.

2. So who knows Loveless fic where Soubi cooks for Ritsuka? I've decided I really like the cooking angle because it combines two interesting character details, Soubi's cultural/aesthetic sense and Ritsuka eating really badly most of the time. (Okay, so this is pretty much an OMG SOMEONE FEED THE POOR NEGLECTED CHILD reaction. But canon!)

3. I resent John Stewart for turning my cult show into a major phenomenon, but admit that he and The Daily Show go great together. He and the Oscars, on the other hand... *shakes head* I don't think the Academy Awards have ever had more hype for less entertainment. Hollywood has been taking itself way too seriously lately.

4. And now the real purpose of this post:

R.I.P. Kirby Puckett, still my favorite baseball player (by extension, the Twins are still my favorite team). I was a bit shaken by the domestic abuse allegations following your retirement, but ten years of teen hero worship do not just go away; and of course it's tragic that you died so young (just 44! It's as bad as Douglas Adams or Octavia E. Butler).

"Cult show" as in the first version as hosted by Craig Kilborn?

REPOST for grammar, inaccuracies
Yup. I don't know how "cult" it actually was, but I frequently did not get the jokes / did not get why the jokes were funny. Despite this, the show had a sizeable following! So I figured it must be cult and that my liking it must make me cool, and tuned in every day.

Think indie music fan and you'll get where this is coming from. XD Jon Stewart is hillarious; I don't really resent him but man, when Craig first left! It was rough.

Re: REPOST for grammar, inaccuracies
XD I was just interested by the fact that you watched The Daily Show circa 1999, when Kilborn was still with the show, because according to my infinitesimally narrow worldview/calculations you must've been, what, one or two years into high school back then? Man. Time zooms.

Seven years ago, I was fourteen. So that would have been eighth grade -- no wonder I wasn't getting the jokes, haha.

You ever notice that media can collapse time? Like I could have sworn Interview with a Vampire only came out a few years ago, but it was in 1994! I was seven! Some movies are inextricably linked to a certain time, to you when you were a certain age, but sometimes they exist outside of time, you know? And then you forget how long ago it was.
