Lift a few mojitos 'cause she manages the mint

HEC: (to Erika) We're just a bunch of obsessive retentive geeks. Besides it's your birthday. You can spread all the lies and misinformation you like. On your birthday, you're like the CIA.

S to the A -- using they/them pronouns!

Theodosia: I'm with Angus, which isn't strange because otherwise we're twins in every aspect of our lives. Well, sort of, by which I hardly at all. But I agree with him anyway.

"Man, i'm covered in pony blood."

Of course it could be worse, I could be Elizabeth Wurtzel, riding my depression and my tits to publishing stardom.

Erikaj on the pressures of writing.

Carrots are good because nobody notices if one is missing.

Trudy, majestically and surreally closing out a vegetables-as-dildos conversation in Buffy 1.

Steph, in Natter:

Advocating my death is the new black

And Angus, in response to Erika, in Natter:

It's your birthday! No-one here thinks you're insufficiently grounded in the literature of Gay Hollywood, OK?

You sip / say it's your crazy / straw say it's you're crazy / as you bicycle your soul / with beauty in your basket


And I just realised, the word ‘screeching’ is so sadly underrepresented in literary sex scenes. Does no one screech like a banshee at the moment of truth anymore? I blame MTV. It’s taken it out of the bedroom and into Aerosmith videos.

On which note (??), I walked out of my apartment this morning to the sight of two squirrels getting a bit of furry-tailed action on the footpath. It was an awkward moment. I stopped dead in my tracks, not really wanting to disturb them; they too froze in place, the one scrabbling to keep his balance, with expressions on their tiny faces very much like a teenager whose parents have come home early.

Sadly, I did have a train to catch, and they shot off up a tree as soon as I took a step. I can only hope they weren’t traumatised by the experience. *sniff* They grow up so fast. ...No, they really do. I mean, they’re rodents, fer cryin’ out loud.

IN Buffy:

Alibelle: Ok. Question: Vampires eat people. People eat meat. If a person has sex with a bull, for example, it would be bestiality. Does the same rule apply to human sex for a vampire?

Burrell: I'm getting a little worried about you, Alibelle. I don't think the fact that we eat meat is reason why sex with a bull is considered bestiality. It's considered bestiality because it's a bull. As in beast, not human. I't not like it's considered normal for a vegetarian to have sex with a bull, is it?

Allyson: There's nothing sexy about fucking steak.

Burrell: I bet there's a kink out there for it. I'll just go check my handy dandy fetish map.

"Man, i'm covered in pony blood."

I just got spam.

It was entirely in Italian.

I'm now concerned that I'm on a Sicilian Mafia mail-list and I'm starting to think I'd better not hit "unsubscribe".

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

And billytea in response:

Much of my spam arrives in a language with which I am unfamiliar, which seems to have roughly eleven different expressions for 'barely legal' but none for 'please remove me from your mailing list'.
